Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great residential multi-tasking tool with a strong motor. Worth every penny, well worth every dollar. Strong motor with more power than any other residential product on the market. A great investment, purchased the head and trimmer first and the curved edger second. Invest in the quick change trimmer head over the standard. The curved edger has plenty of power and it easy to use. Use premium non-ethenal gas and Stihl 2 cycle oil and your motor will run great. Change the air and fuel filter yearly too. The power and dependability of Stihl makes their products worth every penny, well dollar. GS in Germantown, TN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasure to Use Just what I expected from Stihl - top notch quality. Blown away how professional & helpful the whole purchase experience was. The KM 56 RC-E is so much easier to use with the curved edger attachment then my old walk behind edger I have been using for the last 30 years. Plenty of power for my needs. It even makes a cleaner edge than my walk behind. Starts right up every time. Can't wait for the next accessory which should be the blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Right Tool What a difference having a quality tool makes. Nearly 20 years ago, as a fire fighter instructor in the Australian Defence Force, I would train future emergency responders on the use of chainsaws. Stihl were the brand we used at the school. So I have known for a long time that Stihl products are high quality and designed to be reliable and easy to use. That being said, for a long time I have been trying to get away with using weed eaters from cheaper brands. Finally after going through 4 of them in the last 3 years, I came to my senses and bought the Kombi with the FS KM Line attachment that has an AutoCut 25-2 head.I should have done this years ago. It is ridiculously easy to start, runs smooth and powered through the work in my yard with ease. I live in a rural area and have a drainage ditch that runs about 80 yards along the front of our property. The sides of the ditch are too steep to mow. This has always been a real chore, however I was impressed with how well the Kombi ripped through it, and I got the job completed quicker than I have ever done in the past.I said to my wife that if she ever wants to get me something for Xmas, birthdays etc that she can just get an attachment for the Kombi.Glad I have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for a homeowner This was a great purchase. Not a cheap big box piece of equipment. Cranks up very easily and runs strong. I have a half acre with a fence and sidewalk/driveway and it does everything that I ask. Plenty of power to do homeowner jobs. I purchased the weed eater and curved edger attachments.I would like to see more information on the warranty when purchased - that is a big factor for me on a purchase like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes work easy I recently moved to a house that was overgrown with weeds. The lawn hasn't been edged in years either. The weed trimmer attachment took all the tough stuff out and didn't bog down once. The edger cut through the dirt like a hot knife through butter. It was a piece of cake switching the attachments out and even easier to start. That completed my switch to Stihl equipment. Great products at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait? So happy I bit the bullet and purchased it! I got the Weed Wacker and Edger heads. Was amazed at how quickly they take care of the trimming and edging. I see the blower and pole saw attachments in the near future. I strongly recommend purchasing.
