FBD-KM Bed Redefiner

FBD-KM Bed Redefiner
An efficient and professional KombiSystem attachment for defining mulch and flower beds quickly and easily

Product Description

The STIHL FBD-KM Bed Redefiner attachment for the STIHL KombiSystem saves you time and labor by allowing you to maintain mulch and flower beds up to seven times faster than manually using a shovel. It features an “open” deflector design to cut down on clogging caused by dirt and debris, and with a solid drive shaft and a skid plate to protect the gearbox, you can be sure that the STIHL FBD-KM is a strong, durable piece of equipment. Combine that with the precision control of an adjustable depth wheel and a “line of sight” indicator, and you’ve got a powerful and efficient landscaping tool that’s an affordable alternative to a dedicated bed redefiner. The STIHL FBD-KM is recommended for use with the KM 130 R, but can be used with the KM 90 R and KM 110 R.

Reviews

FBD-KM Bed Redefiner is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will wish you bought it sooner I bought the FBD-KM Bed Redefiner for the Stihl Kombi KM 94 R for upkeep of the flower and garden beds I have around the house. I resisted getting this at first for 4 reasons: 1. I could just string trim the edges and touch up areas with a shovel. 2. I could use a regular lawn edger with a straight blade. 3. Didn't feel the money was worth it for an attachment like this.4. Even though it is a professional powerhead, I was skeptical the 94 R powerhead could sustain long periods of use with a heavy attachment like this or would simply be too much effort to use.Having used this several times now, here are my responses to each:1. Not only did the Bed Redefiner give a professional looking, trench finish to every bed I did, I couldn't believe how quick and efficient this tool was. And I can't emphasize enough the resulting professional look - string trimming and shovel looks bad by comparison.2. The straight edge works, but it doesn't provide the wider angled channel that the Bed Redefiner provides. Having done it both ways, the look is much better with the Redefiner - it has spoiled me.3. For #1 and 2 above, I would have gladly paid more. The first time you use it, you immediately realize the value.4. No worries here - plenty of power and no struggles. Be wary of how wet the soil is - the dirt buildup may force you to scrape the guard clean before continuing, but the dryer the soil, the less buildup you will experience.TIP: Watch YouTube videos of this attachment - per the instructions, you pull this toward you during use with the open end facing the bed. Seeing it in action helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver Rairly do you find a product that lives up to its great reviews from the first minute. Usually there is a technique to learn and lots of hours of experience. We just purchased a house with over 25 landscaped beds and trees. I am a new user to this level of equipment and needed to find something that could give us back hours of our life. This Bed Refiner is it. It easily converted 20-30 hours of hard work to less than 2 right away. I will never again think of picking up a shovel to clean up beds.Thanks Stihl, it almost seems like an incredible waste because it works so well. In literally no time you are done and wondering what else you should do to keep using such a great tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Time Saver!!!! This is a great tool to have instead of using a spade! It cuts and nice clean edge with little to no touch-up areas. DO NOT use in wet conditions. If your soil is moist, this bad boy will clog up and you will be picking mud out of the shield. DO use when soil is bone dry and always wear eye protection when using any STIHL power equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! After attempting - and failing - to use my edger to tame back the St Augustine grass along my beds in the sandy Florida soil, I purchased this bed tool. Wow was my first impression at the heft in the unit. Remarkably, it's a joy to use. Pulling it backwards made light work of the bedding edging process. The line was perfect on the first attempt. I highly recommend this tool if you have a grass to soil border on your beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Kombi Attachment I recently purchased my Stihl FBD-KM bed redefiner as I have several flower beds to renovate this summer. Out of all the kombisystem attachments I have this is by far my favorite. It does an incredible job restoring a bed edge and is several times faster than a shovel. I run this bed redefiner with a Stihl KM131R and it handles it very well. It does have a tendency to clog in wet soil but otherwise it cuts through the ground like a hot knife through butter. If you're considering buying the bed redefiner don't hesitate, go buy one and you will for sure be impressed by the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver Works well as long as the soil is neither wet or too dry. When damp, the tool clogs and has to have the soil removed from the housing every six inches or so. If the soil has a lot of clay and is very dry the blade fails to cut to the full depth. If soil conditions are just right it works great and beats using a shovel as I have done in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use I have recently bought this unit for my landscaping. I normally have to rent a bed edger, and my local dealer told me about this great little tool. What took me about 4 hours to do, took me only about 30-45 minutes. Very easy to use, doesn't throw the dirt like the rented bed edger. The only drawback was that it really didn't dress the side of the edge with grass over hanging. After I cut the edges, I just took my other edger with the metal blade and dressed the edges. Than followed with my blower to diffuse the grass and extra dirt on the edges. This edge redefiner will save me lots of time with my customers. This is a must needed tool if you do a lot of edging. I use this head with my FS250.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great tool I have most of the tools to fit the KombiSystem and by far this on is the most rewarding. The job it does is hard to believe and with ease. I should have bought this sooner but thought it was expensive for an edger. I'm hear to tell, you won't be disappointed. I would recommend it to everyone.
