KM 56 RC-E
KM 56 RC-E is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 95.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for Around the House I purchased the Kombi system with the string trimmer. I have been looking at replacing my battery operated string trimmer with a gas powered one because I hated the loss of power I would experience in the middle of trimming my lawn. I knew STIHL was a market leader and so I wanted to incorporate this brand in my next purchase. I settled on the Kombi so I can expand the use in the future. I plan on purchasing the hedge trimmer along with the bed definer or edger in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adaptable with great power It's great to have only one engine with multiple attachments and not have to compromise on power and dependability.

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.
