    Awesome Addition to Trimmer
    I use this attachment on my FS90 and it is amazing. While you don't get the full reach of a specialty pole pruner, it still gives you reach for the majority of what is needed. The blade and bar are excellent quality and my FS90 drives it perfectly. Great tool to drastically increase the usefulness of a trimmer.

    Wears the Stihl name as good as my other Stihl equipment does.
    Just bought on 6/8/2015 came home read manual and went to work. Mounted it on an 130R Trimmer works GREAT. No need for me to buy pole pruner having already owned the 130R. Would be another engine to keep up. This way I run my trimmer motor more so it stays in tune. Going back to get tiller head next. Cuts limbs up as fast as my 211 saw. ( Really need the face screen using it overhead.)

    Excellent attachment
    This attachment has blown me away. I use it with fs 111 r and boy does it make pruning trees and bushes a breeze. Before you know you will have created piles that may take a while to clear. It can handle up 3 inch diameter branches with ease. I love it.

    Great Attachment
    I bought this attachment for trimming around my pond, and it is great it lays the grass down instead of throwing the grass in the pond. It also can trim in the water for those willow sprouts and grasses that grow in the pond. I use this all the time because of the clean cut without the mess being thrown everywhere.

    Love this product ! ! ! !
    The perfect tool for cutting grass around my vinyl fence posts - unlike a weed eater, it does not throw grass or damage my vinyl posts. Contrary to safety precautions, I sometimes use it when I'm wearing shorts, boat shoes, and no safety glasses (I don't recommend this - ALWAYS wear safety equipment#. Although time consuming, it is easy to sharpen it myself. I've owned and use this for 5 years and use it bimonthly. It is driven by a FS110R. Will definitely buy another one when #and IF) it "dies".

    Take your trimmer to new level
    I purchased this attachment with some reservations. Sure, it is a bit pricey but I have found you get what you pay for and the convenience makes up for it. The head swivels to varying degrees and the length of the blade makes it possible for me to trim my 9 foot tall hedge from the ground without a ladder using my FS110. Switching the trimmer head to this takes less than 2 minutes and I can literally trim 40 feet of hedge in the amount of time it took me to get my ladder, extension cords. We all ... read more know the routine with corded hedge trimmers. Climb the ladder, trim what you can reach, move ladder and repeat. With this it is so much easier! Quality is excellent, not sure about replacement blades as these are uncommon at the dealer but I'm sure they have them.

    One of the best attachments ever
    This is the best attachment ever!!! From trimming hedges to cutting small limbs. The best thing about this attachment is using it to cut high grass and weeds in ditches. It does amazing when it comes to high grass and thick weeds. It doesn't do as well with very thick short grass. It does need to be very sharp when cutting grass and weeds, if it is this thing is a beast..

    Excellent Attachment for Clearing Brush
    I recently bought a large property. I would estimate the size of the brush/vine/blackberry patch I'm working on now to be about 1.5 acres and it's right in the middle of a field. Using this attachment on my FS 111 R, I have cut through a large blackberry patch. While this is a very effective attachment, it is not for the meek or the weak. Then again, neither is clearing decades old blackberry patches. This trimmer is not light. That said, the adjustable angle allows for you to fine tune your ... read more approach and vary your position enough to delay fatigue as long as possible. I used it about three hours the first day I had it and about four hours the following day, and was able to function at work on Monday. This is plenty for a weekend warrior.

    Awesome Cleanup Tool
    We run 3 of these on FS90's for lawn cleanup in the spring up here. Up here in Alaska the plows push piles of sand and gravel out onto the lawns. These sweepers literally throw this sand wherever you want it to go. Will throw sand, gravel, pebbles. The only thing is the fs90's are a little week for these beasts. Would reconnect this to any landscape company in a snowy area where the plows scrape half the driveway onto the lawn.

    This product works great
    Was everything I expected. Only wish the plastic shroud cover would cover the ends of the paddles. Dirt and rocks tend to fly back at you

    Nice Product
    This product works very well with my FS 111 R. I can trim hedges in a matter of moments by switching the gearbox attachments. This has been a big help. Another great Stihl product.

    Way better than a regular hedge trimmer.
    I bought one of these and put it on my FS90R. This is way better than a regular hedge trimmer, don't have to get up on a ladder much at all for 8' tall bushes that I need to trim a couple times a year. Lots of power and not very much vibration. Very happy with it.

    Pole Trimmer
    Trimmer worked very well and did the job I needed. The only negative was the weight of the unit. I also purchased the 3' extension and really had to struggle with the overall weight and I don't consider myself a little guy. There is a shoulder strap included, but it's pretty much useless.

    Easy to use
    I bought this attachment without using he Kombi system. I have an Fs56-c trimmer and was hoping It would be powerful enough to use the tiller. It was; and switching from the trimmer head to the tiller head was as easy as unscrewing and screwing the bolts in the head. Loosened up soil with ease and It didn’t have too much trouble with small to medium sized rocks. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the market for a terrific tiller for a great price. Honestly, if I had to say at least 1 ... read more con, It would be the lack of a middle tine. But if you use a right-to-left or vice verse motion, It gets the middle patch easily.

    Yard Boss Cultivator
    The cultivator makes a quick job of weeding, but on hilly, uneven terrain, I need a sturdier carriage and a more compliant set of wheels, preferably larger, inflatable wheels.

    great tool for the price
    Works Great With The Fs 110 At Breaking Up Tough Soil, Like New Soil In Small Patches. Previously Cultivated Soil Breaks Up Very Quick With No Effort. Very Quick To Change Between Trimmer And Cultivator, More efficient Than Having Two machines. Would Recommend If You Have A Trimmer That Can Switch Between Attachments.
