New Stihl KM 90 R

Finally broke down and bought the Stihl KM 90 R Kombi motor. It has the articulating hedge trimmer attachment right now. I plan on adding the pole pruner and power scythe attachments later on.

BladeScape: It was about $545 with tax.

Josh: Yes, it is a 4 mix. Other than smell, no noticeable differences.

Rob: If you are talking about the padding in front of the loop handle, yes, it's a huge help when trimming hedges.

Lawn freak: Lol about the trike. It belongs to my niece but is in storage in my garage. I got the machine at my local Stihl dealer.

Thanks man, I can't wait until I finally get mine. I love the power of the FC110, but when trimming hedges it's brutal.
