Stihl Kombi System was something I was completely unaware of until I became a Stihl Shop owner. Granted, I am a school teacher by trade so my knowledge on Outdoor Power Equipment was limited at the time but I think this is such a good option especially for people who need a long reach hedge trimmer or pole pruner.
Stihl's only stand alone, long reach, 2 stroke hedge trimmer is the HL94 (RRP $999) and while Stihl has a larger range of stand alone pole pruners they start at HT56 (RRP $699).
Comparatively you can get a Stihl Kombi Engine starting at the KM56 (RRP $329) and then combine this with:
Cost effectiveness is a primary consideration here. If you buy a HL94 and HT56 as two separate unis you will have spend $1698. If you buy the similar-in-features Kombi System with the 3 attachments mentioned about you will have only spent $1226. If you need an engine with more power you can step up to the Kombi Engine KM94R for $499 and you'll still only be at a total price of $1396.
Now that you've got an engine you can team that with additional tools, e.g.
The Stihl Kombi System is definitely worth consideration if you're getting ready to buy multiple tools.

It's easy to see, lawn pride is a common fixture of Australian society. However, we are also, in most places, on the brink of drought, so how can you maximise results without breaking the bank or water restrictions for that matter?
Go to Bunnings on the weekend and you'll be confronted by the hundreds of products you can purchase to treat your lawn. Many of these will work but we, at Stihl Shop Penrith, have decided to put our trust in Lawnporn (distributed by Amgrow).
Lawnporn has amassed a following of over 80000 people on Facebook and we have so many people in store absolutely RAVING about their positive experiences with Lawnporn. Let's be straight up, the price upfront might be more than you're willing to immediately accept, however, the upfront investment in a quality product will prevent you from spending more of multiple purchases of more subpar/cheaper products.
The fellas at Lawnporn recommend a few things and there's A LOT of reading you can do on this topic but here are the main overarching themes that seem the keep propping up:
1. Aerate your lawn - you can't grow grass in hard soil. This doesn't have to be an expensive exercise. You can hire or buy a proper aerating machine or just buy something from eBay or Bunnings, From spiked shoes to rollers,.. there are quite a few options.
2. Water for quality not quantity - you're better off watering your lawn in the morning (this is allowed before 10am in NSW and after 4pm) for a longer period of time (say 30-45 minutes) rather than 3 times a week for 15 minutes at a time. A deep watering allows water to get right down to the roots where it's needed.
3. Mow frequently and keep your grass long - Mow your grass as frequently as you can (aim for 1-2 times a week in summer) and never take off more than 1/3 of your grass height (e.g. if your grass is 3cm tall, only take a maximum of 1cm off the height).
