    Help me choose please... homeowner looking for a multi-functional trimmer.

    Local Home Depot has the Echo PAS-225VPB trimmer/blower combo on clearance for $180. HOw does this compare with the Swisher Shindaiwa e4-u3000 combo unit. Line trimmer, edger and pole prunner a must.

    Yeah...yeah..would love the Stihl Kombi, but can't justify the costs.

    Echo is very good price, Swisher is Shindaiwa and is stronger.

    I went ahead and picked up the Echo. Used a 10% Lowes coupon. Attachments are more expensive. Are any other brand attachments compatible?
