I have a pas 265. Its worked good for me for the last 2 years of daily use. I run about edger every day and a pole saw sometimes.

If you have the trailer space an moeny ide go with individual tools.

If you dont I would go with the stihl combi. Go with the pro version not the HO version. I have a buddy who runs a stihl pro version km110 an it works great. He has had it a while an I use it sometimes, absolutley great machine for a multi system. He swears by it.

As far as price Sometimes you get what you pay for. If you want dependable equitment you have to pay for it. It will save you alot of moeny and hassle in the wrong run if you just get the right equitment the first time around.

I don't want to put too much money into it; I am only 15 and I'm not that big yet. I only have 7 regular clients. With this new information: what would be best?

Pick a color of commercial attachment series and don't look back

GreenBlade you may also want to look at the Husqvarna line of trimmers and their attachments. We have had extremely good luck with our Husqvarna model 327LDx series and its attachments.

I don't think the bed definer will work with the 230. It's too underpowered

I think I'm gonna go with the StihlCombi. I have a Stihl dealer like 2mins. away from my house. I will look and see how much a pro version with edger & trimmer attachments will run me & see if my dealer will give me a good deal. I'll just buy the redefiner later separate as I need it. I don't really need it that much right now. They should cut the price down eventually as well being that it is a relatively new product.

If you are just getting into commercial hand helds, I would still get the individual units first as they are much lighter, easier to handle than the heavier Kombi or Pas units. I would get one of those as a back-up later when money is plentiful. I have to say that all my units are second hand even my Echo multi tool and serve me well. (Except my Stihl chain saw bought it new.)

I have a km110 with the edger, pole saw, and trimmer head.

I wouldn't want to use the trimmer as a dedicated unit, as it seems kinda heavy and bulky. The only reason I bought the trimmer head was because it was on sale for $39, and as a backup.

I didn't think Stihl offers a bed definer, but correct me if I'm wrong.
