Thought I would just share in my purchase this weekend. Sorry, no pics at the moment. But, I finally bit the bullet and decided to buy the Stihl Kombi system. I went with the 111 Power Head and bought a few attachments that I could use right away: 1) string trimmer 2) Chainsaw trimmer 3) 145* Articulating Hedge Trimmer 4) 3 foot extension.
I currently have an Echo straight shaft trimmer - the SR230 (I believe its an SR - certain about the 230). My trimmer is about 15 years old and has been very, very good. Our new home has a ton of edging, trimming, brush cutting, so swapping back and forth from string trimmer to blade was getting really old. With the Kombi system, I plan to keep the old Echo for blade duty, hence buying the new string trimmer attachment.
We have a ton of wooded edges with ground cover around the property and the Articulating Hedge Trimmer is incredible for zipping along and cutting those huge weeds that can grow like a foot overnight...I have many, many trees, so the pruner is nice - I kept having to borrow my dad's pruner sticks, so this is much quicker.
First impressions of the 111 Power Head is torque - WOW!!! Granted, its 33cc versus my Echo's 23cc, nonetheless a HUGE improvement. Just string trimming, it makes easy work with much less scalping. I used to run the Echo at probably 3/4 throttle just to keep it from bogging on light grass trimming. The Stihl muscles through at what seems like a slower speed, which leads to less scalping.
If anyone has been on the fence about one, I would recommend it. I cross-shopped it with the Echo and dollar for dollar, they were very equal. I went with the Stihl since 1) powerhead is more powerful on the spec sheet and 2) I don't own any Stihl products. :D My chainsaw is a proper Husqvarna.
