    Thinking of getting a stihl power broom attachment. Would i be better off with the kombi km90 with the attachment or the stihl yard boss tiller with the broom attachment. Seams to me the yard boss would be easier to control since it has wheels and 2 handles. Any help or advice would be great.

    The yard boss wheels are for moving it around, and aren't used when running the machine.
    I had an MM55, and tried it's cultivator head on my KM110R, and it was awful. It wasn't the handles that made the difference, but the weight of the machine. In the Yardboss, the machine's weight is pushing down on the attachment. On the Kombi, you don't get that down-force, and pushing down against the balanced weight of the motor can be tiring.
    I never had the power broom though, so I can't speak to how that different balance would affect sweeping.
