Rated 2 out of 5 by from Recurring issues with attachment driveshaft I bought this product back on August 2017. One month later I had an issue with the attachment. For some weird reason the attachment would come loose and get stuck in the sleeve of the Kombi powerhead. Took it back to the dealer, got it fixed under the warranty. Sometime later had the same issue. Again got it fixed due to still being under warranty. My concern is when the warranty expires. This issue is obviously a design/manufacturing flaw. Stihl Corporate USA should take moral responsibility for their products and make the situation righteous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bulky unit not balanced I find the connections don’t last and need repairs. It is bulky to handle. The power is good. I bought Stijl based on name and reputation. I might try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features Very easy to start and change out trimmer head to edger attachment. I wish it was a little easier to change out trimmer line. But all in all it’s a great addition to our yard work making it faster to get finished. I also own a Stihl gas powered blower my wife loves it so easy for her to start.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 carburetor repairs in 4 years Had to rebuild the carburetor every year for the last 4 years at $85.00 a repair. And now for the 5 time will not stay running. I have always used the premixed fuel but does not seem to help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Continuous problems with interchangeable shaft I purchased this system for my husbands Christmas present. The very first time the product was used the trimmer got stuck in the shaft. I have since had the product back to the dealer for warranty repair approx. 8 times. Each time I use one of the attachments gets stuck. The dealer continues to "fix", but the issue has not been resolved. Very poor design.
