View Full Version : trimmer with multi attachments

12-18-2008, 11:35 AM
Hello all you money hounds.

Good to use or not?

One of the multi attachment machines, you know one with edger trimmer blower tiller.

I am staying small, one man opp. This is very attractive option, it seems however, that this would only be good for 1 to 2 seasons.

Any input is needed. Thanks.

You talking about the Stihl Kombi System ?

I currently own these attachments

Trimmer head/blade
Straight edger
Pole Pruner
135 degree Hedge trimmer
Kombi blower (best tool they made so far) Here's the video http://stihldealer.net/videolibrary/OnePlayer.aspx?v=16&vt=16&vb=2&id=16

I was looking at home depot and lowes for my supplier mostly because of price.

I hate to say it But if you can stay away from the Lowes and homedepo Junk I would!!!!!!
I know they sell JD and Cub and Echo But the stuff they sale IS all junk.
IT will not last you one year (been there done that)(so I know).
So why buy all of the heads for it when I t want even last that long ??????
The Stihl Might be a good one. But Not for the price They want for it in my Mind.

If you like Stihl Buy a trimmer then just get The heads for it. Way cheaper.
I like Redmax the best so far.
BUT I do have a honda trimmer with a Stihl Hedge Trimmer on it(The head it self cost over $200 )

Stay away from the Lowe's and home depot versions. i have the Lowe's Troy-built system, and i am not happy with it, they are under powered, constantly doing maintenance on the attachments, looking at buying separate machines for each job. do not get the curved head string trimer after a long day of trimming your back will start hurting, there not designed for commercial use.

Do they give a warranty up to a certain number of hours?

No they just own that 4 mix motor for those Kombi System and it does work better than the regular ones

Thats what I say. Stihl came out cheaper then the Echo and I know the sales rep for Echo I used to work for Home Depot and the still was cheaper then his cost to me.

I bought it for Trimming a tall hedge and pruning. I bought the Trimmer heah Chain saw head and extension worked great all this year.
