Our most powerful KombiMotor, the KM 131 R has 33% more engine power than the KM 111 R.

Product Description

When you are on the job, which do you value more: power or versatility? If you answered “both,” then take a look at the KM 131 R KombiMotor. This multi-tasking tool is the most powerful in the STIHL KombiSystem family and features a low-emission engine, delivering 30% longer run times compared to previous models. It’s compatible with over a dozen KombiSystem attachments, giving you incredible utility in a fraction of the trailer space compared to stand-alone tools. The KM 131 R is also easy to operate, featuring a semi-automatic choke lever, one-touch stop switch, anti-vibration system and a specially designed quick-release coupling system for easy switching between attachments. The only thing easier than using the KM 131 R is leaving your older, bulkier power tools behind.

The STIHL KombiSystem is a versatile landscaping system that includes a powerful STIHL KombiMotor and a full line of attachments. Together, they give landscaping professionals the ability to tackle a tremendous range of outdoor tasks without loading the trailer with a pile of tools. Attachments include trimmers, blowers, hedge trimmers, edgers, pruners, cultivators and more. Each attachment slides into the KombiMotor effortlessly and is secured via a quick-release coupling system, saving you time as well as trailer space.

NOTE: STIHL KombiMotors and STIHL KombiSystem attachments are sold separately.

KM 131 R is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted First time buyer of this model and super impressed ! I am very confident this will last me years to come , very pleased .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a Beast! I’ve used my 131R with the brush cutter and straight shaft trimmer attachments. I also bought a saw blade to go on the brush cutter, which has been a lifesaver for clearing small saplings up to 1.25” in diameter. I works great for woody brush as well as briars. The 131 is a torque monster and combined with the saw attachment, makes quick work clearing heavy, dense brush. Well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KM 131 R Lots of power, that is the reason for my purchase. Even with the chain saw attachment with the extension on it has more than enough power even for the big stuff. Very reliable and easy to start.The price did not matter to me as long as it will do jobs reliably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Very powerful! Have had several other brands and they don’t last. Have always had Stihl chainsaws and decided it was time to purchase this. Got the trimmer and pole saw attachments and can’t ask for anything better. Powerhead is probably to powerful for what I do but hey you can never have too much power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a BEAST!!! The power head has more power than I need. Great machine! The blower attachment air velocity tops any blower I've ever owned bar none! Runs rough when first started but after it warms up it's good to go. I highly recommend this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimming tool Wife loves it as is great high reach tool for trimming and pruning. I would buy again, but is a little frustrating at times. First off I have about about a dozen Stihl motorized products that use, so here our my comments. Small blade is harder to sharpen than a standard size saw chain, Stihl needs to increase size. It seems that the saw chain on mine hops of the blade too often requiring stop working to fix, I think a larger blade size would help this. I would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight power Very light weight and ergonomic. It is super easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Machine I purchased this unit specifically for the power scythe attachment capability to help clean up cattails around a few ponds. I also bought the trimmer head to trim around the house. Both attachments work great and the motor has plenty of power. The only downside is the initial cost investment is higher than an equivalent trimmer model, but with the flexibility to add a pole saw, hedge trimmer, and maybe and edger and blower in the future, the total investment over time will be less. In my opinion, this is the way to go if you have a large property to tend to.
