    I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this machine. If so could I get the pros and cons.

    I don't have KM 110 but I have KM 85 R power head with brushcutter handle and connector, it rocks!
    Starting on second pull and once it is warm, the engine screams with very powerful power. Little bit heavy but I don't feel much cause after riding on 400-500 lbs WB /sulky...you can handle any weight...*smiling*
    I think the 110 is a step over 85...so I guess it must be as good as the 85 series.

    I have a 110 4-mix and love it. Its 31cc of pure power, yet i can still use it for trimming in delicate places. it almost always starts on the first pull, even in the morning when i first fire it up.

    Hey MTR,

    I was wondering how much you paid for the KM 85 R?

    I got it new @ $ 260.00, like 3 months ago...cause my original FS 85 combi was so heavily relied on that I need additional powerhead for hooking up with hedgetrimmer ext, and pruner ext, so far this things are worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.

    a fixed hedgetrimmer ext is $149.00, it works wonder! I can reach high, tall tree and thick hedge with ease without walking into bushes. It is a must in order to keep property neat every month. The hand held hedgetrimmer is very good but I have lots of thick and tall hedge, so KM 85 R and hedge ext is the best tool for the job.

    does the KM 85 R come with the string trimmer head?
