Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Best Service I bought my KM130R about 5 years ago and still love it. Every spring I take it to my local dealer and have it tuned up and it always runs like a dream. Somewhat heavy but I bought a good harness for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-use system I have owned the KM 130R for over two years. I also have a string head, brush head, bush trimmer head (scythe), blower, and pole saw. This system is really great! I am a professional grounds keeper, and I can do most jobs with the Kombi system alone. It may seem pricey, but it's cheaper than buying a dedicated tool of each kind attached to a power source. In the old days I had to remove the string head and attach a brush head to switch from grass to brush. Now I just detach and attach the heads...sweet!! I got the 130R to make sure I had enough power, and it is a brute. I have never had a need for more power. Great system!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust! I bought the KM 130 R to replace two "other brand" units that I had for quite a few years. We have a ~200 acre property that is both open fields and woods so that requires a versatile tool that can accommodate a variety of attachments.I was immediately impressed by the simplicity of the controls to both start it and operate it. Unit starts easily and the operating controls are comfortable and ergonomic. The unit has a lot of power even when not running full bore, easily powering pole saw, brush cutter and weed eater. Attachments are easily changed out.The only complaint I have is in the length shoulder strap as it is a tad too short for me. Issue was resolved by adding a "D" ring between the clip and the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a piece of equipment that you can rely on! I have had numerous other box-store brand pieces of equipment that have not held up and have been a problem almost from day 1. This starts quickly and easily every time and does what I need it to do.I use this with the grass trimmer/weed cutter, blower, and edger attachments. This unit is a power monster!I do not regret my purchase at all!You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from multitask monster-motor I'v owned this thing about 6 months and have string head, brush blade, and pole saw. I would like to tell you that I have used a lot of string trimmers and brush cutters in my life, but the truth is that I have only used toys until I got this one. This thing is a beast of a power head. It has as much power as most homeowner small to midsize chainsaws. You simply cannot bog it down. I can take the string trimmer into 4-5 foot tall grass/weeds on my farm and simply cannot swing the head through the grass fast enough to overwhelm the power head. The implements are very hight quality. You will read a lot of mixed reviews on the string trimmer head that Stihl puts on the straight shaft trimmers. They read, "breaks off line" and "difficult to reload with line". I'm not sure where these folks get off but this head is fantastic. Will it break off the line in heavy grass/light brush, yes. Because there is so much power that it fatigues and overheats the line where it exits the head after several minutes/seconds of heavy use. This is because the KM130 simply has more power than most any string trimmer's. Use high quality line and use the larger .095 or .105 line and keep the thing fed and you will not have a problem. If you can't figure out how to reload the spool with line without the manual in about 30 seconds, then you should have your power tool operator's license revoked. Other implements work exactly as expected. Pole saw is top notch. Overall, you could probably get by with a smaller KombiMotor, but if you are going to run the pole saw attachment, then you want this one. You could also get by with a smaller bass boat that won't break the speed of sound but. . . you don't. And that is why you will love the KM130. My only complaint is that they have done a universal tune on it and took away the high and low adjustment screws.They are there but require a proprietary tool to adjust the tune. The Idle speed is the only adjustment you have on how it runs. It also seems to have a rev limiter which makes you think it is running rich at the top end (when you have it wound up) with no load. It sounds perfect under load though. This does not affect the performance. Minor gripe/personal opinion.It starts first pull, hot or cold, every time.
