Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally some quality and durability Everyone knows Stihl is not the cheapest and now I know why. I purchased the powerhead with the straight shaft string trimmer attachment after my craftsman string trimmer head grenaded the second season I owned it. I was reluctant to spend the money but my dad had bought a ms250 chainsaw a couple years prior and loved it. He puts up 8-10 cords of wood a year (has probably put up 100 cords with it at this point) and the thing has been a real workhorse so I decided that I would give Stihl a shot. I could tell right away that these things are engineered with precision because of how smooth running and responsive it is. After a using it a couple times I was hooked. Next I bought an edger, which I have no complaints about. The following year I received the cultivator attachment for fathers day. Wow! I wouldn't have thought that the little motor was gonna be able to turn over beach sand. I was wrong! The thing is like a power shovel. I use it to open my small garden every year but most impressively, I used it to excavate an approach to the second stall of my garage. Sod is a pain to chew through but only because the thing is so light that you need to add a lot of down pressure. Which is exactly what I did. As of this writing I'm about to go purchase the blower attachment. I love only needing one power head for do many implements. Only one engine to maintain which I am yet to need to do going into my fourth season with it. Buy the right tool once! May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't use anything else I have always used stihl products and love them. If stihl made a gas powered pushmower along side there battery mower i would buy a gas powered one in a heartbeat and sell my current mower. I would love to be an all Stihl person. Love there products and never think about buying anything else. April 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool I have been very impressed by this tool. Lots of power and great quality. My only gripe is that it really isn't made for tall people. I am 6'04" and I have to bend down quite a bit. Still I am very impressed. The people over at Chino Mower have been great to. The crew there is always friendly and willing to answer all my questions. Thumbs up to Stihl and Chino Mower February 12, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy with purchase I am very happy with this Kombi unit, it starts very easy thanks to the easy start feature. I will stay with that feature in future purchases.I purchased this to use the power sythe for trimming around the pond and not throw grass in the pond, and now I use it for most of my trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I bought this Kombi power head with a string trimmer 20 years ago based on recommendation of Reynold's in Fishers Indiana. Still statrs easy and runs strong. Good power in lightweight unit. I bought a brush head attachment recently to clear heavy weèds and light brush. When I asked about what brush attachment would be best, the same salesman that helped me 20 years ago still the record of my unit! I've bought several pro saws and a leaf blower...All Stihl of course. Every Stihl I have start and run great. I do always use ethanol free gas with Stihl Ultra 2 cycle mix. Stihl products , advice, parts and service on as far away as your nearest Stihl dealer. Dont even think that you can get this at a big box store. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product saves me time I had looked a kombi system for a few years. After my old weedeater finally bit the dust I took the plunge. I asked my stihl rep if it was really worth going to the pro series and she assured me this would be plenty powerful enough for me, and boy was she right. It starts like a dream and runs like a champ. I picked up the straight shaft weedeater and the hedge trimmer and there is no doubt in my mind I made the right decision just wish I had done it sooner. I can't wait to add more tools to get even more use. October 4, 2014
