Rated 3 out of 5 by Good - not Great I own multiple Stihl products as well as the Kombi system. I agree with others, though I have the 'pro' power unit (KM-110) - this edger struggles w/ clean edges. I also thought I had a broken shaft - only to discover after taking the unit apart the shaft somehow was disconnected from the driver near the blade. Strange.I also have the adjustable hedge trimmer and the cultivator attachments and have had no issues w/ the shaft. May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This edger is a great asset to my attachment collection. I bought the KM 90R, and the old style curved shaft edger 7 years ago. This particular edger encloses the top half ooooof the blade. It works fine, but wet grass and mud tend to accumulate and can cause the blade to stall, which can lead to clutch damage. I live in Florida so that happens a lot in the spring & summer. I was going to get the new curved shaft with the open edger guard, but read so many postreviews about this one I decided to give it a try. Stihl claims the straight shaft puts more power to the blade, and they're right. I was thinking I should have gotten one of the larger engines, but this edger has no problem going thru overgrown grass with the 90 engine. It's great and the open guard lets grass fall away. I'm very pleased and you will be too. If you can spare the extra $100, I highly recommend it. May 4, 2016
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
