Any Stihl Guru's out there?

Picked up a HL100z extended reach 135* articulating hedge trimmer recently. I know you can remove a trimmer such as FS90 and remove the gear head and install an articulating hedge trimmer. Can I remove the articulating head and install either a chainsaw head or string trimmer or brush cutter head? Shaft is the same length as my Redmax trimmer. Not sure if the mounting holes are oriented correctly. Has the D handle.

Would a gearbox from a fs85 work? Could get one cheap enough from a parts unit.

According to the owners manual you can ad a bunch of attachments including the chainsaw. The list is on page 13 of the manual-

Thanks Riding Green. I found the "compatibility chart". If only IPL's were commonly available I could answer my own question about the specifics of the gear heads.
