    Default Compatible bands of attachments

    My Ryobi Expand-it power head just gave up the ghost. Never liked that engine; now it's dead. Still have the string trimmer and brush cutter attachments, though. Is there another, more reliable brand of power head that it's those attachments, or do I have to start over from scratch?

    Hey neighbor,

    I have the Stihl FS90R with string trimmer, brush blade, adj. hedge trimmer, and pole saw. That semi four-cycle is wonderful and even the 90 (on the smaller end) has more than enough power for these attachments. A good friend has the Kombi version for even easier interchange (I have to lessen and re-tighten two bolts each time) and loves his too. I think you'll find the reviews consistently positive on both series (all use the same family of power head).

    Good luck,
    Hunter

    I believe you're right about that. So now I have one, too. Thanks for the advice.

    One good thing about using the combination tools is that you keep the motor running more frequently, nothing worse than a motor that sits to long inbetween uses.
