Reviews

KM 111 R is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing power unit and system I did a ton if research with different brands. I knew I wanted a multi tool system for my home. The system had to support not only a trimmer and edger, but also bed redefiner, pole saw, etc. I made right choice. Power unit has enough power to get thru anything. With so many attachments options you can tackle any project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely FANTASTIC I absolutely LOVE the new combitool. I got it with the trimmer to start, will be getting branch trimmer, hedge trimmer and the tiller soon. Any problems, my stihl Dealer, Ram Supply in Eagleville Missouri is top notch, and an excellent source for Stihl products. I was searching for a trimmer, they took the time to ask questions to fit me with the precise equipment. This RM 111 Rvwith trimmer attachment has mega power, fires up immediately, and runs like a Porche. Only minor issue, it will not stay running on idol... but frankly, any other trimmer I have owned never did either ( OR LAST LIKE A STIHL!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely hard to start - does not idle I purchased this motor as part of my CombiTool purchase. It is an extreme disappointment. Upon initial use it takes at ease 25 pulls of the cord to get it started despite following the instructions provided, or trying other approaches to starting it. Once running, it will not stay idling. You need to constantly “goose” the motor otherwise it will stall. After two weeks of trying to get this to start easier, I took it back to the dealer (Weingartz - Utica Michigan) to get it serviced. They had it for a week, indicated they made adjustments to the valves and adjusted the carburetor. Absolutely no difference!It’s going back again! If they can’t make it start easier or run at idle, I’m asking for a full refund of the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it all As a homeowner with several acres, this tool does it all for me. Have progressively bought the blower, hedge trimmer, weedeater, cultivator and edger attachments. Has plenty of power and very reliable...no problems. Lightweight enough for me and no prob with the attachments added weight. I only use Stihl oil in the gasoline and have only needed to do routine maintenance on it ( plug, filter) . Makes me look forward to yard work. If you want to look like a pro. .. get this thing. impress your neighbors by learning to start this thing with one pull as you are walking in your drive. Beats the excessive pulls of exasperation kneeled over some cheaper model that won't fire up.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product built to last I had a competetive string trimmer that failed quickly and I bought this Kombi Unit so I only needed one engine for several attachements and I did not want another cheap product that would fail. It starts easily and runs great. I like that I can add to the system as I need additional tasks and will not need to maintain a bunch of engines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for many lawn care tasks: edging, trimming, and hedge trimming. Professional quality for residential use is well worth the money. Bought the Kombi system with 111 power head and it came with discount on trimmer attachment, so I upgraded to straight shaft for strongest gearbox. Also bought edger at same time. Used both for full season last year and just put on new trimmer line and edger blade for this year. Trimmer slices through very heavy grass and weeds, plenty of power to edge with ease, using one hand! Also bought adjustable hedge trimmer - works great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great So far I only have the straight shaft trimmer attachment and it works great. starts first pull every time. Very powerful. Took me a couple uses to get used to the extra power it makes over my FS55 that I have used for over 7 years. Going to add the blower and edger attachments soon. Very easy to change between attachments. Overall a great power head with great attachments
