  • Purge Pump Primer
    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor when pushed, reducing the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operation.
  • Loop Handle
    The loop handle (R) is an adjustable rounded handle mounted on the shaft for support and control. The handle is designed to help control the machine in different positions, ideal for reaching tough spots. The handle is large enough to accommodate a gloved hand comfortably.

Reviews

KM 111 R is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont think about it, buy it. I was talked into the 111 over the 56. I have the tiller attachment, curved trimmer, curved edger, and pole saw. This will run all of them with ease. It is pretty light and its a Stihl, so it will last for years. I have a 5 year old blower with the 65 motor, it cranks on the first or second pull every. single. time. Now that I have this with all the attachments, I shouldnt have to buy anymore tools for my yard to look top notch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LAGS BIG TIME! THESE 4 STROKER ENGINE LAG BIG TIME COMPARED TO THE TWO STROKE I REPLACED. I SPENT HOURS WITH THE STIHL MECHANIC AT ACE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY THEY BOG DOWN AT FULL THROTTLE AND EVEN HALF THROTTLE. STIHL CLAIMS IT IS NORMAL, BUT IT IS NOT NORMAL FOR THE TWO CYCLE ENGINES AT ALL. THEY WILL RESPOND INSTANTLY AND WIND UP AND STAY AT FULL RPM. THESE 4 STROKER DO NOT AND THEY ARE A HASSLE TO USE WITH PARTIAL THROTTLE COMPARED TO THE 2 CYCLE FS85 I JUST REPLACED THAT RAN PERFECTLY. I WANTED TO TRY A TOOL I CAN CHANGE OUT HEADS/ATTACHMENTS AND NOT KEEP BUYING DEDICATED TOOLS LIKE THE FS85 WAS. I SHOULD HAVE NEVER TRADED MY FS85 PRO AND SHOULD HAVE KEPT IT. NOW I AM STUCK WITH THIS KM111R TO GET MY TRIMMING DONE. IT IS MUCH HEAVIER ALSO. TRYING TO GET THE RPM AT THE SPEED NEEDED TO CUT CORRECTLY FOR ME IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. IF YOUR THINKING ABOUT GETTING INTO 4 STROKER ENGINES FOR TRIMMING, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THEM AT ALL.I STARTED WITH THE KM 130 AND THEN THEY SWITCHED OUT TO NEWER MODELS RIGHT AFTER I BOUGHT IT. NEW MODELS HAVE THE NUMBER 1 FOR LAST DIGIT IN THE MODEL NAME INSTEAD OF 0. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MODELS TOO. DON'T BOTHER WITH THE OLD 110 OR 130, THEY ARE DESIGNED IN 2014 AND OUT DATED COMPARED TO THE 2017 MODEL. SAME GOES FOR THE ATTACHMENTS. BE VERY CAREFUL AND TRY TO BUY THIS YEARS POWER HEAD AND ATTACHMENTS. MY EDGER IS AN OLD MODEL AND THEY BROKE OUT THIS YEARS VERSION AS SOON AS THEY SOLD THE OLD VERSION AND I WASN'T HAPPY ABOUT THAT EITHER..MY OLD FS85 PRO HAD LIFE TIME WARRANTY ON ELECTRONICS ND SHAFT AND CLUTCH AND NOW THEY ONLY HAVE 2 YEARS! AGAIN, NOT HAPPY AT ALL.THE KM 130 R WOULD BOG DOWN FROM 8000 RPM AT HALF THROTTLE BECAUSE OF THE LIMITER. THIS MEANS THE THROTTLE WAS TWICE AS SENSITIVE AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN, AMONG OTHER PROBLEMS. WE TRIED FOR HOURS TO GET IT TO NOT BE THAT WAY AT THE STIHL DEAR, BUT IT WAS A LOST CAUSE. I SWAPPED IT OUT THE NEXT DAY FOR THE KM 131 R. I CAN TRY TO KEEP A FINGER UNDER THE THROTTLE TO T MORE UNDER CONTROL RPM WISE. BUT IT STILL TAKE SOO LONG FOR THE ENGINE TO RESPOND TO THE THROTTLE. WE TRIED 5 DIFFERENT VERSIONS AT THE DEALER AND THEY ALL DID IT. EVEN THE NEWER 2017 MODEL OF THE KM 131 R WAS HORRIBLE THIS WAY.. MAYBE IF YOU USED THEM UNDER HEAVY LOAD THE LIMITER WOULDN'T KICK IN, BUT THEN THE THROTTLE POSITIONING WOULDN'T BE SO IMPORTANT EITHER. IT'S A BAD DEAL FOR SURE AND I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THEM.THE GAS TANK IS ABOUT ONE THIRD THE SIZE THEY USED TO BE. THE SHAFT LENGTH IS TOO SHORT FOR ME SO I HAVE TO STOOP TO USE IT ALL OF THE TIME. THIS IS NOT GOOD AT ALL ON THE OL SPINE AND NECK.THEY DO START WELL AND THE 2017 DOESN'T HAVE THE ON/OFF SWITCH NOW. IT JUST USES A KILL SWITCH SO IT IS READY TO RESTART W/O NEEDING TO SLIDE THE SWITCH TO ON ANY MORE. THE CHOKE IS NICER AND HAS 3 POSITIONS LIKE THE STIHL BR 700 HAS WHICH IS ALSO VERY NICE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! Bought 3 pieces of the Kombi attachments; curved shaft edger, straight shaft trimmer, blower. This thing has tons of power! Was not sure what to expect for real world performance, but am extremely happy with this set up. Will most likely pick up the paddle wheel for light snow in the future. I wish it was a bit lighter, but the performance makes this a non issue for me. Highly recommend!
