Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Homeowner Multi-Tool I bought this power head along with an edger, leaf blower, curved-shaft trimmer, tree trimmer, and hedge trimmer. It always starts first pull with a few pushes on the primer. The throttle response is amazing. It is also very light for its power output, which is nice if you do a lot of trimming. Plus, it is easy to service, change attachments, and doesn't take up a lot of space. I can trim with this for 2 hours without a harness and still keep going. Even though its a homeowner model, I have done lots of work for different people with it. Overall, a great purchase for anyone looking to do major work around their home. February 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by I would not purchase this product if given another choice. This product is hard to start as well as heavy and unbalanced. The trimmer is difficult to use and get the correct angle for edging around beds. As I use the edger it is becoming easier. After rainfall (next day) edger clogs up every 30 feet +/-.The blower is just ackward to use. However there is plenty of power. February 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product, great features. I enjoy this product both in power and versatility. It has more attachments than I thought and is great for someone who has a larger or smaller yard. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great setup I purchased this 2 years ago with the straight string trimmer, straight edger, and bush blade. Everything works great. The parts interchange very nicely and with ease. It has plenty of power to drive all three attachments. In having one motor and several attachments seems to allow more bang for your buck and minimized maintenance issues. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a great homeowner entry level KombiMotor. Outstanding value for the investment. I have been using commercial grade Stihl Tools for the lsat 15 years as a Maintenance Supervisor and a Facilities Director. I made sure every property I managed that had it's own landscaping crew was using Stihl Products as fast as I could get them. There is simply no better lineup of landscaping tools to be had. Once I used Stihl at work I began to buy Stihl products for my house. The Kombisystem is a system before it's time! I own a commercial system and just bought the KM 56 RC- E, which accepts all tools the commercial system uses and is easy start. As A disabled Veteran I appreciate the Easy Start system and would love to see it on all Stihl motor heads. Keep up the good work and If you need a field tester for your products send them my way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality equipment Bought this with the string trimmer and a pole saw and exstention. Huge improvement over standing on the top of a ladder and firing up a chainsaw. Pleanty of HP. Can't wait to try a new attachment. Money well spent. December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible I was simply amazed at the power of this unit. I purchased this head with the straight trimmer and cant believe how well it works and how much power is delivered to the trimmer line. I would highly recommend this power head to anyone with a reasonable amount of yard work to do. although it is not cheap, not having to buy one of the big box store trimmers every year or two will save you money in the long run. If you're a homeowner buy their 2 stroke oil and you will get a 4 year warranty instead of 2 year. Cant say enough about it, if you're on the fence just go get it, you wont be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Difference from a big box store 4 cycle I had a 4 cycle model that I bought a few years back from a big box store and it recently died. I was evaluating to go with an Echo or a Husqvarna from the big box stores and was talking to a friend at work. He said he bought Stihl and loved them and said check them out. So I looked at prices and warrantees for each and read the reviews. So I went with a Stihl since it was very similar price, friend's recommendation, and we had a great Stihl chainsaw growing up. Man am I happy. This unit works so much better than the 4 stroke from the big box store. It actually has so much power I get done half the time I did in the past for my hard. The edger attachment is amazing. Powers through and makes my yard look great. I also have gotten the bush trimmer. Tons of power it cuts through 1/2 limbs with ease. The easy start system makes this such an easy start it is almost unbelievable. Fantastic feature. Worth every penny. I would recommend this unit to anyone. You really would be foolish not to buy a Stihl. I think any other product would just be a waste of money. Get a Stihl!!! September 19, 2013
