KM 131 R

KM 131 R
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.

Reviews

KM 131 R is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great System I have used this a lot in the last year on my 2.5 acres, edging, clearing vines, cutting limbs and trimming palm trees. I have the weed cutter, blower, and pole saw attachments. They have all worked very well with this. I have the composite pole extension too. The motor has not failed to start easily and just keeps running. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power and Versatility My first Kombi head was Homeowner KM56R that I bought over 20 years ago with trimmer attachment. I've added other attachments but with the straight stick edger, I had to use finesse to keep rpms up. I recently purchased the KM 131 R (same Stihl professional) It runs the edger effortlessly and now I can add any attachments that need more power. I still use the KM 56 for string trimming. Good fresh ethonol free fuel or Motomix will assure trouble free service for years just like all my Stihl saws and other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They should have called it the Omni This powerful, easy starting tool is amazing. It will take just about any tool you want to put on it. I settled on it because it is the most powerful tool in the industry and because of Stihl's reputation. It also will accept my cheapo tools with no problem and I will replace them as they wear out rather than all at once at this time. This is a really great power head and I saw a video where a guy tried competing brands, and Stihl attachments all on this power head. You cannot beat that. It is as good as when tractors all started going to Universal hydraulic fittings. Just a great tool that should have been called the Omni.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Powerful Motor I bought this power head to have the flexibility to change accessories and not have to store as much equipment if all were separate machines. I have a Stihl blower that is at least 15 years old and gets used all the time and while it is sometimes stubborn to start after cooling from hot use but not cold, the engine is still strong. This KM 131 R has a lot of power. I'm glad I bought the larger engine. It also is very easy to start. It sat all off season (5 months) and it starting on first pull and quickly goes into a slow idle.If i had to add a con, it would be that with the string trimmer attachment the balance is a little lopsided towards the motor. The trimmer is a light attachment and I would assume with heavier attachments the balance would be better. If i was only going to use as trimmer I would get a dedicated string trimmer with better balance, but I am happy with the trade off for the flexibility of adding other tools.
