Reviews

FCS-KM Straight Lawn Edger is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good overall with one design flaw Took delivery recently and tried it out around my sidewalks. Everything works well but my only complaint is that the business end is 90° off angle. This requires you to hold the powerhead sideways. It’s awkward to wield. But otherwise a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool, could be improved. This edger does an amazing job. It leaves a beautiful straight edge. However, the head is a little too light so if you are cutting a new edge you need to apply downward force to keep it in the ground, and if you are tall (over 6’-0”) you have to crouch somewhat to run it properly. Bending over and pushing down at the same time makes it very tiring to run. I solved the lightweight head issue by strapping a 15lb dumbbell to the head. Now it stays buried in the ground with no effort! I still have to crouch to run it, but at least I can simply push it ahead now without needing to force it into the ground. In summary, if you are shorter than 6’-0” and diligent enough to maintain a nice edge all the time this thing will do an amazing job! If you are tall and only edge a few times a year it will make you work pretty hard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FC S-KM Lawn edger from a first time user. Just bought this edger today. Took it home and tried it out. I saw a video on youtube and thought that would be a great attachment for my KM 91 R. Well, once I got it secured and got the motor started,,,a little bit of a learning curve but not much,,,I got busy and so did this edger. Easiest edger I ever used. And extremely quick too. Time is money so if you want to clean up those edges you need this attachment. By the way, my neighbor was out while I was using this and I edged his walks for him. He said he was going to go buy one for himself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FCS-KM Edger works after years of service The FCS Edger straight shaft, is not new, for me, So once a year or so I do some maintenance gear grease. I have always used the thick edger blade, for me will last longer and will do the job right for me. So every year I try to do the maintenance, visual check, and gear grease. So I looked at the tool "Edger" the 1/2" nut has a t25 star-Torx, bit. so 1ST I tried to t25 star-torx on one of the tools from Stihl, could not free it up, 2nd used a impact wrench to remove it with Not a impact bit "GRK T25" broken the bit tip off! 3rd I used the 1/2" wrench remove the gear grease nut just fine. Added the grease no broke parts, good for another year. The Stihl Kombi KM130R has been working great for years 02/17/2012. I'm getting old 70+ years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Longer Shaft You just can't do a good job without an edger, and this does get the job done. The only problem is I'm too tall to use it comfortably.Two solutions to make this a total 5 star edger attachment.1) Longer sling. Limited by arm length, but might help.2) Longer shaft. You have extension shafts, but they are too long. It'd make more sense to put 12-18" more on this one.Otherwise it's a good edger. The Kombi system is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest Edger I've Ever Used I like a nice edged driveway and sidewalk and this does the job quickly. I have the largest Kombi motor and it almost drags me down the driveway. I've tried an electric and a 3/5 HP gas model that don't go deep enough and are hard to keep straight, this one gets deep enough and leaves a perfectly clean edge. I use a back and forth motion first if I have to cut any turf and then when I get the end I pull it backwards and it cleans the edge perfectly. Take this off and attach the blower and you are done. I have a business with a couple hundred feet of sidewalk and curb. If I were a professional landscaper, this is what I would use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome attachment I’m not sure if the stihl powerhead is just way more powerful than the other brand I had or the edger attachment is just that much better, but this thing is awesome! It’s definitely sturdier than the other one I had. Love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts A Clean Edge Needing a lawn edger, I consulted my Stihl salesman who originally sold me my KM55R powerhead and trimmer over 20 years ago. He recommended the straight shaft and confirmed my powerhead had enough power. It works well and cuts a nice edge. Cons are that it is short and bit pricey. Big plus is easily changing accessories while only having one powerhead saving money.
