Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Machine! I purchased this unit at the beginning of the summer... very pleased with it. I’ve trimmed up around houses and in ditches. Has more than enough power! I’ve been in overgrown ditches 4-6 inches deep. Cuts though it like butter wet or dry. I would recommend this to anyone. You might be hesitant about the 400$ but it’s well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brush beast! Purchased this to clear underbrush on hunting land. Added a brush blade and this thing is unstoppable. Thought I was going to have to purchase a saw blade for saplings, but the brush blade when through sapling up to an 1-1.5”. Added a trimmer head for the yard at home. It’s overkill for trimming around the house, but I love the versatility of the Kombi system. Planning to add a tiller in the spring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quit working after 1 day I bought this at local ACE hardware store about 3 weeks ago. Salesman was very nice and informative and recommended the 131 model due to its stronger engine. He test started it at the store- a little difficult to start but he felt normal for first time. I didn’t get a chance to use it until the following weekend. It started ok. After using about half a tank of gas I shut it off. It would not start the next day. Returned it to the store to see if the salesman knew what was wrong. No Luck. They have had it for 2 weeks and when I stopped to check on it last week I was told that they were running about 60 days out on repairs. I would not buy this again without a guarantee that it could be exchanged or returned for full refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I purchased this unit about 2 years ago. I have several of the attachments. I was trimming my yard in June when the engine stopped running. I was not able to get it started again so I took it into the dealer to have it checked. Turns out the piston had burned up and was inoperable. The dealer sent the piston and rod in to the factory to check if it is under warranty. The repair is under warranty but the parts are on back order. That was almost 2 months ago now. There is no timeframe when the parts will be in. It is an indication of the lack of quality and reliability when the dealer is over a month out to even look at what the problem is with a unit because they are too busy with repairs of other Stihl units.I have been using a cheap weed trimmer that I purchased from Home Depot in the meantime without any problems. The HD unit cost me a fraction of what the Stihl cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Great Features. My Stihl KM 131 has been excellent. I have blackberry vines, tall thick grass, and ivy's growing around my property and this chops it down with ease. I am impressed with this machine compared to other weed eaters I've had in the past. It has definitely sped my time up with outdoor maintenance. I look forward to purchasing other attachments for the 131. The versatility of the KM line of weed eaters is great. This is a worthwhile investment for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The power is amazing! I have had other name brand edgers in the past and just figured that was how they all are, powerless. Well after buying the KM 131 R I now have a real edger, the KM 131 R never stops, I am amazed at the power this machine has. Now I am looking forward to getting every attachment you sell for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, light duty I purchased this Kombi system with the pole trimmer, brush cutter, and hedge trimmer attachments. I used the hedge trimmer for only about 3 hours when I experienced a failure of the drive shaft. My dealer did a fine and quick job on the repair, and I've had no further problems. I've enjoyed using the unit, and the flexibility the system offers, but I feel it is not suited to heavy-duty use. If you treat it carefully, it works just fine for lighter yard work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great concept and execution This is the most powerful Kombi head unit, but weighs just the same as the other heads. It starts easily, sometimes even without the choke being used. Has more than enough power for the different attachments I use. I look forward to getting a couple more attachments.
