  • 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.
  • Quick-Release Coupling
    The quick-release coupling system makes it easy to switch between Kombi attachments. In addition, this feature allows KombiSystem equipment to be dismantled into two parts for easy transport and storage and then re-assembled quickly without tools.

    See it in action!
  • Split Shaft
    A split shaft and special toolless quick-release coupling lets you easily switch between attachments, making the KombiSystem highly versatile as well as easy to transport and store.
  • 14 optional attachments available 
    Create a custom yard care system with up to 14 optional attachments – trim, edge, cultivate, prune, clean up and more!
  • Electronic Ignition Module

Reviews

KM 131 R is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, what i was looking for. Only issue is I've only used it twice and the second time i had difficulty in starting it. I went back and read the manual and still had some difficulty but once it started it worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Rolls Royce of Stihl This thing is a Beast! I needed more powerful trimmer and attachable parts, and that's exactly what I got. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than enough power and not too heavy I bought this so I could use a bed redefiner and edger. I also bought the string trimmer attachment for when my 20 yr old trimmer dies. I might buy a couple more attachments later on. Right now with the bed redefiner and edger this thing rocks. Engine starts on first pull. It is not so heavy that only a young muscle man could lift it. My 5.4" wife and 77 yr old father have used this and both love. My shed is beginning to look like a Stihl showroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love all of the attachments Having one power head and six attachments makes life easier and only one fuel tank to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one I've ever bought This thing is a workhorse! Sounds like a mini bike, will take on anything! Only have weed eater attachment so far, plan on getting rest of attachments. Well worth the money. Starting setup isn't too good, hold throttle wide open & start pulling and hang on! It's a beast! Will consider Sthil products first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stalling issues first, now hard to start Within 5 minutes of first use, unit would stall when letting off throttle. Took back to dealer for adjustment. Had to adjust idle when I got back home to keep attachments from turning. Now, extremely difficult to start, whether 1st start , or restart. Very disappointed in dealer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Horse!!! I have used an Orange colored competitor product all my life. That company seems to have moved to the consumer market. I have multiple properties I see after. I was in the market for a pole pruner and hedge trimmer. I saw the Kombi line from Stihl. I opted for the KM 131R Kombimotor and it does not disappoint. It has power to spare no matter what accessory you attach to it. I went back and bought the scythe and string trimmer head. I'm STIHL man now!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Very disappointed in the weight. Vibrates under load. Loudest hand held equipment I own. Definitely my last stihl!
