I am running a Stihl Br 600 Magnum it is the best purchase I have ever made. I run the Stihl Km130R Kombi unit with multible attachments, I love it. But I hear very good things the FS 110 R

I have heard many good things about the kombi as well. is it easy to switch the attachments in under 2 minutes? I was thinking about buying one of those and a bunch of attachments. also, if I have a string trimmer attachment and my real string trimmer is unavailable for any reason, I can use the kombi as a back up...

Unless you really need the power the FS 90 ($299) will do great for you. Thats what I run and have heard a few other on here as well.

Unless you need all the different attachments that the combi offers that don't come in a gear box attachment. Really combi is just a half shaft and gear box obviously just goes at the end of your full shaft trimmer. It doesnt take long to switch either.

Weight your options.

As for the blowers I got no info/experience on them of use to you.
