I have had the echo trimmer edger combo for a couple of years. worlds better than the ryobi pos i replaced. my only complaint is that the edger head is a heavy bitch if you have a long stretch of curbing and cant use the little wheel.

I use the Stihl Kombi motor setup too. KM55R with straight shaft trimmer and straight shaft edger. Plenty of power and light weight and the attachments are locked on with a clamp instead of the crappy spring-button Troy-bilt uses.

I was going to buy this today, until I walked into the closest Stihl dealer. My dad got the motor, trimmer and edger for about $300 about a month ago in Minden. The one I went to today wanted $350 just for the friggin motor. I asked if that was a package price and the guy said that it was just for the motor so I just laughed and walked out shaking my head.

Find another dealer or print out the MSRP from Stihl and show it to them. Should be $230 for the powerhead and $90 for the straight-shaft trimmer attachment and any reputable dealer will sell both together for a slight discount.
