Rated 2 out of 5 by The Weak Link in The Kombi System I've owned the pro Kombi system for a few years and finally added the straight edger. The blade that comes with it is really thin and barely makes an edge between the lawn & sidewalk/driveway, it was also ground down and rounded off after one use. That might be why the saleslman was selling me on the fact that this unit accepts a thicker blade during his sales pitch on why I should buy the straight edger versus the curved one. The edger requires a lot of back and forth movement and does not leave a manicured edge. My cheap electric Black & Decker provided a much cleaner edge than this unit. Because it has a hood to stop debris shooting out, it catches a lot of mud and grass which must be scraped off after every use. This attachment really falls flat compared to the rest of the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Revitalized my KM 55 R I have an older Kombi KM 55 R from around 2011. When I bought it I also bought the curved edger attachment (The older silver model). I live in FL and have a pretty established yard of St. Augustine with at least a 3 inch pile. I wrestled with the curved edger for years while it bogged down and bounced all over the place. This year I had had it. I contemplated just buying a whole new stand-alone edger but figured I'd give this a shot first. Let me say that I actually *enjoyed* edging for the first time in years. It tore through all the problem areas that would normally kill the engine of my KM 55 R. It is a little expensive but it's worlds apart from the silver versions IMO. Be sure the model you get is the one with orange blade guard. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Edger Bought this and I have been using it daily at my clients properties. Every edge is clean and straight. I would recommend this edger albeit a tad expensive. September 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken shaft less than 1 year Drive shaft broke the 4th time of use. My local dealer said it was due to abuse and told me there was no warranty. I am very disappointed with my local dealer because he can't read and understand the Stihl warranty. I hope another Stihl dealer isn't as bad as this one. September 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Overall attachment I was hesitant to purchase because of the price. I only need it 2-3 times a year so its hardly justifiable for me. The unit is really light and fairly easy to use. Overall happy with the purchase just hate having to stare at it on my wall. June 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Piece of Equipment I run this attachment on the KM 130R. I use it daily on lawns that have maintained edges and those that have never seen an edger. It can handle what ever you throw at, so long as your power unit is large enough to provide ample amount of torque to the head. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Attachment I had a consumer version of this from another manufacturer. I would only edge once each year because it took so long and was always a fight. It's April and I've used this twice already. I can edge my driveway in about ten minutes with the KM 90 and the FCS-KM. The setup is powerful and never hesitates to do its job. April 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the difference over the curved-shaft unit I originally purchased a KM110 and the curved-shaft edger, but on the first use the cable/connection point of the edger unit stripped apart. I know enough to make sure the unit is connected properly, so I took it back to the dealer. They gave me a second unit, which did the same thing. I took it back, and the dealer diplomatically said I wasn't connecting it properly. I told him to show me what I was doing wrong, and he stripped the third unit right there in the showroom. I suggested that maybe there was a bad batch of cable/connectors, and asked the manager if he would knock a few bucks off of this unit so we would both be happy. He agreed. I've used this unit with zero problems for three seasons on a one-acre property with a long driveway. With it, I am as fast as the professional landscapers that some of my neighbors use. It is much, much better than the old Ryobi combo system edger I used on a smaller property. Even with the problem with the curved shaft edger, I would purchase Stihl products without hesitation.
