I just recently saw that Echo (Only reason, is because I don't even bother to look at the "Echo Section" @ my local dealer). I was waiting on some parts and was browsing the store. I just worry about the Power to back it. Echo Blows! I Own ALL Stihl Products...... But have my own concerns about Stihl producing such a product.
1.) Power: I have a FC-95 Edger and it's kind of a PIG. It would have to be an FC -110 or Better to cut in a Bed.
2.) Weight: With that large Head on that Bed Redefiner & Larger Engine. The thing would weigh a ton!
3.) Cost: My Stihl FC-95 was $400+... This thing would be $600-$700 (At Least!).
Maybe if they came out with a Kombi Attachment for less than $300... Then it might make sense. I would actually invest in a KM-130 & the "Redefiner Attatchment" then. Otherwise, I'd rather just buy a "Used" Brown TrenchMaster for under a grand and call it a day.
I am Purchasing another (third) Stihl BR-600 soon. With all the Stihl Gear that I Buy... I wish they would let me Demo out some of their NEW Gear.
I would give them some good Feedback.... Honest Feedback.
