Rated 4 out of 5 by Kombi connection ayatem This product has lots of power and performs the different jobs quite well.The downside is the connector system one has to be very careful putting different attachments otherwise it is possible to jam the attachment and have extreme difficulty pulling apart.Motor is very powerful and pulls throw many things without issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I love using the Kombi. I only have the string trimmer portion currently and will be adding a few more pieces over the next year. I have used it 5-6 times so far, it starts reliably, runs smooth and has great power. I haven't had to use full throttle at all. I use it along a 350 foot fence on both sides and the rest of my property, about 1/3 acre and has reduced my trimming time in half. I checked other makers and to get the same power required a 50% price increase. I anticipate this engine will provide all the power I need. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great single motor with outstanding attachments for around the house needs I started out with a Stihl 18" chainsaw, added a Stihl trimmer, and replaced an electric blower with a Stihl backpack blower (absolutely love the power). When my electric edger started giving me problems, I decided it was time to invest in a Stihl KombiMotor and add attachments as needed. So far I have the edger and just purchased the hedge trimmer. I could not be happier. The Stihl products start up easy, are easy to maintain, and make my life around the yard simpler. No cords, quality results, and takes less time than before, Life without a Stihl is a headache waiting to happen! December 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Long Lasting Purchased product 4 years ago with line trimmer attachment and blower attachment when the product was the KM 55 R. Worked well until last weekend when it would not make full power, died at idle, would not restart and locked up while pulling the starter cord. After trouble shooting, discovered a hole in the piston, a broken connecting rod bearing and two crankshaft bearings that were no longer turning smoothly. Product has always been operated in accordance with manufacturers specifications. Estimated cost in parts alone does not make repair a sensible option. Will not purchase this product again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Weed eater' Every thing works fine except the string release and that is a piece of junk it has yet to release string have to take apart and unwind and re thread it and put if back together this is sad piece of equipment to all of the still products we have bought am going to see if another way to do the cutting. Thank youTommy herron October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life is now easier! Finally bought this head along with straight hedge trimmer and weed trimmer. Upgraded trimmer head with easy load type and got 4 year warranty on head to boot by buying Sthil oil! This system has been a hugh time saver. Was worried about the hedge trimmer capabilities but no worries. I have done more trimming in the last month than the last few years because it works. Stop throwing money away on cheap stuff that won't start. October 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! If you are tired of your gas trimmer and are thinking about cordless don't! I almost did the Stijl gas trimmer starts without effort,has way more power than needed,and hardly ever needs service! The fuel lines are top shelf.(completely different) they do not split like every other brand. The unit is solid and durable. Very happy I found Stijl products. No other brand for me. October 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product This is my second Stihl product. I have been using a Stihl backpack blower for over 5 yrs now and have not had a single problem. After dealing with a junk weed eater for some time I honestly couldn't wait for it to die just to get my hands on the Kombi system. This thing so far is rock solid and handles anything I throw at it around the yard. Can't wait to get my hands on a few more of the attachments. The quality of Stihl is unmatched in my opinion!
