Multi-use tools

cbiscuitMarch 5, 2014

I am looking at a Stihl KombiSystem, Husqvarna, Echo PAS, or RedMax Maxtreme for home use. Can someone provide their thoughts on these models? Pros and cons of each?

A lawn care pro friend recommended the RedMax, but it's not popular in my area. A buddy has a Kombi 90, which also seems to be the more recommended system. Echo seems most economical. Are the higher priced systems worth the difference?

Try Multi-use tools in the search box at the top which shows some info.

Does anyone know about echo trimmers having issues with their carburetors?? My friend just told me that he found the carburetors on the noncommercial echo trimmer to be more of a throw away. I am pretty disappointed I didn't realize this before I bought it. Now I think I want to trade it back in for a combination trimmer/hedger tool instead. I only used it once at the very end of last season.
Thanks!

I did the search function before I posted, but maybe I didn't do it right. I didn't really see any discussions about the multi-use varieties of the trimmers, not comparing those four to each other.

I d/n look deep into the searchâÂÂs info for details. Possibly you saw what I open at the link below which now includes your post.

Good luck with your challenge. I had a split shaft Green Machine from the 80s possibly (string and hard blade trimmer/edger) that is running today. I modified the machine to a longer shaft hard blade only to allow me to stand straight and edge faster.
