Rated 3 out of 5 by poppop55 Works as advertised I purchased the kombi system last spring, 2015. My neighbor let me borrow his straight shaft earlier this year, it seemed to be easier to use. When I purchased the straight shaft edger this year, he liked it better than the curved shaft edger he bought.I liked the trimmer head better on the straight shaft also, I will be getting one today.Overall, I would rate this as average. I would recommend trying both the straight shaft and curved shaft if possible before purchase, to see which feels more comfortable or easier in use, I think this is a personal choice. This trimmer works good for the average yard, and I have a 1/3 acre lot. July 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Royw63120 Poor quality Bought this attachment new. Bearing on inside bottom of shaft, by head, failed. It would get too hot and cause trimmer to freeze up. May 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jayson92920 Didn't work well for me. The curved shaft did not work well for me. The quality is great, but to do the trimming I do it didn't work for me. I am taking it back to the store and hopefully they will let me exchange it for a straight shaft attachment. June 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Neocacher Unable to Assemble because of Manufacture Defect. Purchased today. Metal around collar defective and is impossible to insert into the guard (or need superhuman strength to do so) and finish assembly. I tried for 2 hours. I have to be inconvenienced to go to the dealer 2 times more than I should. Once to return it, and a 2nd time to pick it up if it is repairable or get another one because they will have to order it. Very disappointed as this is part of purchase of KM 130R, blower, trimmer, and 4 blade cutter. First Stihl purchase besides MS170 chain saw. October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buddy59 Just as described This is 10 times easier on your back than a straight trimmer. It's light weight and very powerful. ALSO, it's about 35 dollars cheaper than a straight trimmer attachment. With all of this it's definitely a sure bet!!! September 5, 2013
