Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 123reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by very powerful and versatile I had a 110 until someone strangers borrowed it one night and didn't bring it back. I liked the 110 but some attachments felt underpowered. When I went to replace it I upgraded to the 130 and never regretted it. The unit has never let me down and starts reliably. I do notice when it's hot and I am hot that warm restarts especially after it has run out of gas require a little patience, But as I said I think it is a shame much me as it is the machine. I am tall and my only complaint is that I wish could buy a 6" to 1' pole extension for use with string trimmer, brush cutter, and scythe. October 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This time I wanted a STIHL I had a combo unit of another brand got tire of all the tuneups and not working 2/3 of time so I made of my mind to get a STIHL KombiSystem after owning a STIHL chainsaw it never fails to start and get work done. I went to my STHIL dealer in my area see what they had and man I was a grown man in a candy store with a big sweet tooth ha ha, I looked discuss model to the next I decide on the KM 130 R power head unit with the FS KM string attachment. I tried it out on some Michigan bamboo a very hardy brush I was surprised how that 130 R deliver the power to rip through those stalks without hesitation I only stopped because I ran out of line lol. I will be purchasing additional attachments. October 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken switch Bought this product (brand new) a couple days ago. I turned it on when I got home and found that the "off" switch doesn't work. Once it was on it wouldn't turn off and I had to use the choke to turn it off. I brought it back and the store confirmed the switch did not work. October 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power Bought this with the adjustable hedge cutter attachment... runs through lugustrum bush like they aren't even there. If it is like every other Stihl product I have ever owned it will be a lifer. ... October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good for small lawn care company I was in need of hedge trimmers and was looking to upgrade trimmers from my fs 56 r-ce. I ended up getting the km 130r with the trimmer attachment and articulating hedge trimmers, and am about to get the strait shaft edger attachment. September 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted the best, now I have the best. Period! Purchased the KM 130 R mid summer with the straight trimmer attachment, I wanted quality, power, and dependability. My grandson was with me upon purchasing. The dealer was great, he showed us how to maintain, start, and operate it. No problems, starts immediately, never bogs down, the line comes out when taped on the ground and life is good.Oh, did I mention my grandson is only 13. It is used on my yard and his. he has never had a problem starting or operating it. always wears his safety glasses, ear muffs, and heavy jeansI have now added the edger attachment. No clogging with dirt or bogging down, plenty of power. Very easy to change out attachments and both of our yards are looking fantastic. September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl is the best equipment, period. I use my Stihl equipment on my large property. It has always been good equipment. The value of good equipment, even if it costs a little more than the big store guys, is an investment that just keeps paying, every time you use it. I can't say enough good things about Stihl. No, I am not an employee or investor, just a homeowner that expects to get what I pay for. Stihl is it. Nuff said. September 19, 2016
