Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I had a battery powered trimmer and blower that worked fine at our old house but were inadequate at our new place which is a farm with acreage. The kombi has been the perfect tool for everything. I absolutely love it. I have four attachments now but will definitely acquire more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from caution: you will buy many many acessories I bought this entry level model and the "tiller" to cultivate a small backyard garden. Since then I have bought and used an edger, weed whip, blade for weed whip, blower, second set of "bolo" tines for tiller, hedge trimmer, pole saw, carbon fiber extension for pole saw, and the big paddle wheel sweeper which i use for both snow clearing on the deck.....works awesome including the stairs! all the attachments have worked well beyond expectations and even though this little guy is the entry model I cant imagine needing any more power.....I'm not a little guy 5'11 220 lbs work hard for a living, and I can tell you this guy will wear you out before you can bog it down....only "complaint" is that it is a little tough to start when it gets real cold out and it is time to clear the deck, I find that pushing the primer 35 times and pulling the cord three times after the first ten and then three more after 20 then three times after 35 and she will bark right to life and things are golden!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing tool Easy to start and powerful for the jobs I've thrown at it so far. The range of attachments is what sold me on this product. It is a little pricy in my opinion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One power head with tremendous versatility Purchased this unit a year ago to trim a rather tall and long cedar hedgerow. Since that time I have added the string trimmer and the pole pruner. Recently used the pole pruner to remove the same hedgerow and it performed flawlessly. This tool has far exceeded all expectations I had prior to purchase and will continue to add attachments to increase it's usefulness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable - it's a Stihl I haven't used it much yet, but it has sure worked well when I have. I am using the straight trimmer attachment, but plan to buy a brush cutter and possibly a pole trimmer also. Good power and runs smooth. Not sure the harness is that helpful, doesn't seem to balance well, but the machine is plenty light enough to use without it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All attachemnts keep sticking. I purchase this product and it has been back to the dealership for repair 3 times in less than 6 months. The attachments is very hard to separate from the base.
