Stihl FS 90 or KM 90?

With the trimmer/edger attachments as well. Which would the more experienced in this area recommend? I will probably be using the trimmer and edger at most of my accounts (if that makes a difference). Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a KM 90 and am very happy with it. It's very well balanced and has plenty of power to handle most residential trimming jobs. I've never used the edger attachment but I have a tiller and hedge trimmer attachment that i use with it and the KM 90 has more than enough power to handle them.

I have the km110 with the trimmer head,edger,hedge trimmer and pole saw.
One power unit vs four or five.For a 1 man show like me it's fine,with a crew probably not. The km110 has plenty of power for all the attachments. I would think the 90 should be fine.

Thanks, looks like it will be the KM 90 (trimmer and edger head for now). Thanks for the replies.
