Stihl Kombi users

Which attachments do you have for your Stihl Kombi system & which of them do you use the most? Im looking to ad a few to my collection. Right now I have the KM130 power head with the stright trimmer, pole saw with extension pole & the adjustable hedge trimmer attachments. I use all of these tools alot. Im thinking about adding the blower and stright edger attachments soon. What are your thughts on these attachments?

Km110

I have the KM110 power head with extension & string trimmer, articulating hedge trimmer, brushcutter w/blades and pruner saw attachments. I use it as a limb pruner & brushcutter primarily with some hedge trimming and only use the string trimmer as an emergency backup to my main trimmers. Can't image using it as a blower, but would like to have the mini-cultivator attachment.

110 unit. Both hedge trimmers, tiller, chainsaw, weedeater & blower attachments & several extension poles. The blower is great for light duty blowing. Best to use the tiller pulling it backwards rather than forward. Seems to till better walking backwards. Though Stihl says use one extension only, I have used two with the chainsaw attachment but its heavy and will wear you out quickly.

I just have regular FS trimmers, but I have the pole pruner, articulating hedge trimmer, straight edger and power sweeper. The last doesn't get used all the time, but when I need it, it is one of the best tools I have ever owned. I smile every time I use it. Plus, by pulling a hairpin at each end, I can pop off the rubber paddles, and install the sweeper bristles, or the tiller, and a couple other things off the yard boss system attachments- all on the one gear box that drives the power sweeper.

The straight edger stays on my FS90 most of the time, but I use the other stuff about an equally, which constitutes about 10% of the time.

I would not spend the $ on the blower, get a BR 600 instead.

I have a 90km and a 130km. Blower, straight edger, tiller, pole saw, trimmer, and picking up the 135 degree hedge trimmer, bed redefiner, and a extension. I love the blower on the 130! It's easier than using a bp on small yards if you leave it on and never take it off. If nothing else it's a maintenance free $90 backup blower.

I have 2 KM 110 one is new one is 6 years old.
I just bought a KM 55 for my back up but may use it all the time.
Attachments:
String trimmer, works real good and is easy to load trimmer line. The only down fall is the part you "bump" wears out fast.

Curve shaft edger, works good, had to replace the defelector a couple of times.

Adjustable hedge trimmer, works real good and being able to "bend" isreal nice.

Pole saw, works ok, the chain tends to "grab" small branches.

Extension, great investment for the saw and hedge trimmer, if you dont have one get one, I will say the stuff can get real heavy and Id be real careful around windows.

Bed edger, just got so far Im unimpressed, however I havent used it that much.

Brush cutter, its worthless so Ive only used it a couple of times, eventually Im gonna try some different blades

I likley get the tiller this year, I gave my mantis away

The reasonI bought the blower was because my 600 had to go into the shop. Like has been said, it's a great little backup

I too have a BR600 & use it for power blowing heavy leaves. I prefer the Kombi blower because its fine for most light stuff & I keep all my kombi stuff in my kingcab...easier to store. Blowing off grass clippings, mulch on sidewalks, I prefer the Kombi.

"Pole saw, works ok, the chain tends to "grab" small branches."

Check your sprocket, it might be worn. I've experienced this grabbing quite a bit myself. I have gone thru several sprockets as well.
