Rated 5 out of 5 by from KM 131 R Great Multi tool Purchased a year ago with hedge trimmer attachment. Works great for bushes, smaller tree branches, up to an inch, and to get rid of those XXXX multiflora roses we have all over in NE Pa/NY. I also just purchased the power sweeper to put stone back onto the driveway from plowing them into the lawn all winter. That works great also. It is a little bit heavy but it was not a problem for this old geezer (71). Two days to rake stones back onto driveway plus a sore back. One half hour to power sweep them back onto driveway. Changing tools is very easy, loosen a wing nut, remove old tool, insert new and retighten. Will be buying the chainsaw attachment soon. Great tools, shoulda had them when I was younger.it is al

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not meet expectations Hi . I have had this tool for a few years and from day 1 it had starting trouble . It went back to dealer for a carb replacement . Same issue . Runs great if you can get it started . Dealer now states I need another carb and engine gaskets replaced . This will cost almost as much as I paid for the unit . My other issue is the weight . I used it for trimming bushes and found after a short time the weight was a problem . I always used opti 2 lube to mix gas . it has a stabilizer in it and will run any ratio of mixes . This was not a cheap machine and each tool I bought was not cheap either . Now I have 3 tools sitting in my shop that are useless without power head . Jw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power! Plenty of Attachments. All I have tried work well. This thing starts easy, runs a long time on the tank of gas. I bought this because I was lacking power with my other trimmer and when I first started using this I felt like Tim Allen from Home Improvment. I have the Blower, pro edger, and the trimmer. For the light weight blower this thing performs very well! Better than expected. The trimmer and edger are excellent. The edger especially. If you intend to use the blower a lot I would suggest getting the double shoulder harness. I have yet to get but will be useful for blowing the leafs around. I am so glad I was turned on by a coworker to stihl! Quality Can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful and sounds great I've only begun using this product for a couple weekends buts it's done all I've asked and then some. Pulls to start most times on first try and makes quick work of everything. I bought only the string trimmer and brush cutter attachments but borrowed a friends pole saw attachment. It is an absolute beast on limbs. Powers through like it's a full sized chainsaw. Very impressive and I hope to own that attachment as well some day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power! I bought this power head to run the bristle brush attachment which I purchased at the same time (I intend on purchasing the straight lawn edger, and the 135 degree hedge trimmer later). Thus far, the engine has incredible power and the brush attachment has allowed me to easily sweep away the front of my driveway where it meets the street. We get a lot of heavy sand and wet gravel deposited there throughout the winter from the salt/sand trucks. This swept it away without any strain on the engine and was as easy as walking! The brush attachment works unbelievably great and makes heavy jobs so much easier. I already own a Stihl pole saw, Farm Boss chainsaw, and the 131 R trimmer and have found all the products to be fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from KM 56 RCE-differences from KM 131R I was hesitant at first with going for the 131R. I am glad I upgraded. First of all, it's a little longer than the 56 RCE and being a tall guy, it helped me from slumping over as much. The 131 has plenty of power, never once did I desire more. It was an amazing difference using the same attachments with a different power head. The engine seemed content unlike the 56 which sounded like it was running much harder. I love the torque of the 131 and the sound. I read reviews about the 4 mix engines and not being able to feather the throttle. It doesn't really apply to the 131 in my opinion. I could run partial throttle without any problems. Maybe the smaller 4 mix engines don't have the torque, but this one does. The 56 doesn't offer the adjustments to the strap and handle to the extent the 131 will let you. The strap and strap mount is nicer and will swivel around when edging, the 56 is just a clipped in strap. The 131 will hit the rev limiter pretty easy with the blower attachment, but I feel like it pushes the blower to max performance. It has definitely reduced my time edging and mowing over the 56, it just destroys more grass and quicker. I was amazed. Wow what an upgrade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for the upgrades. I had a KM 130 for over 4 years and had to get a replacement a couple weeks ago. I have the Mini-Cultivator, Blower, Bed Redefiner, Curved Edger, Straight Edger, Brushcutter with several types of blades, String Trimmer with 25-2, 30-2, SuperCut, PolyCut and additional heads, Pole Pruner with steel and carbide chains, Shaft extensions, Adjustable Hedge Trimmer and other attachments. I like the new machine and how light it is. I miss the throttle lock and wish it had an adjustable throttle lock. It seems to start and run better than the 130 so far. I also really appreciate the extra 6 ounces the fuel tank holds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only have the angled pruning attachment , but I am looking forward to getting a couple more attachments The angled pruner makes it easier to reach the taller hedges that I needed a ladder to get to before, so it is much safer as well.
