    So I want to purchase a Stihl Kombisystem, I have priced the head unit for the Kombi, the KM 90 but the FS90 is the exact same price. I know that the attachments will work with the FS90 so why not just buy the FS90 and get a free trimmer versus paying the same price for just the Kombi head. Am I missing something?

    You missed the part where the dealer screws you on the kombisystem. I would definitely just get the fs90 and be done with it.

    You're not missing anything. If you are only planning on using it as a single tool (be it a trimmer, stick edger, etc.) then there's no advantage to having the Kombi.
    If you're only looking for a pole pruner, then know that the Kombi doesn't even have a sliding extendable pole option (just an extension).

    The advantages only come into play if you want to switch between several ends.
