    Hey guys i need some advise, would it be better to get the km 130 and all attachments i would need, trimmer, edger, and pruner, or should i buy these seperatly.

    I've never dealt with the km 130 but unless those attachments are quick-release it's not much fun to be constantly switching out heads... And even if they are quick-release for a full-timer I would rather have one of each than a swiss army knife, hope that makes sense.

    I agree with that...sort of.

    I recommend buying the Kombi with the edger and pruner. Then, buy a dedicated trimmer. Or, get a dedicated edger and buy the trimmer attachment.

    I use the Kombi system. It's pretty painless to change from one to the other. But, I also have another dedicated trimmer. I don't actually change it that often. I use the Kombi as my edger and it stays on except for a couple of times a week. This arrangement gives me two trimmers when needed.
