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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The King of Kombi's I recently purchased my Stihl KM131R to use the line trimmer head as well as curved shaft edger, blower, and hedge trimmer. This new kombi engine is an absolute beast and provides more than enough power to run any attachment you can put on it. It is definitely worth the money. I highly recommend the KM131R

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Powerful Product 10 Stars out of a possible 5!Recently purchased my first Stihl Product, the Komi KM 131R.First Job, clear out dead vegetation and reeds. Tried the weed eater, line was gone in the first pass. Attached the FS-KM Brushcutter, incredible power, literally destroyed everything in its path! This tool was so powerful it startled me, and I've been performing yard maintenance for 35 years, at times professionally.I can't give this tool a high enough recommendation. I had burned through other name brand tools prior to this, all failed. Stihl is now my forever go-to tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional quality tool I use the 131 commercially for the power broom and brush cutter attachments. The power is perfect. No issues with starting. Very handy multi purpose tool. Will be adding the pole saw soon as well the carbon fiber extension. Highly recommend going with the 131 for power if your looking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KM 131 R Great Multi tool Purchased a year ago with hedge trimmer attachment. Works great for bushes, smaller tree branches, up to an inch, and to get rid of those XXXX multiflora roses we have all over in NE Pa/NY. I also just purchased the power sweeper to put stone back onto the driveway from plowing them into the lawn all winter. That works great also. It is a little bit heavy but it was not a problem for this old geezer (71). Two days to rake stones back onto driveway plus a sore back. One half hour to power sweep them back onto driveway. Changing tools is very easy, loosen a wing nut, remove old tool, insert new and retighten. Will be buying the chainsaw attachment soon. Great tools, shoulda had them when I was younger.it is al

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not meet expectations Hi . I have had this tool for a few years and from day 1 it had starting trouble . It went back to dealer for a carb replacement . Same issue . Runs great if you can get it started . Dealer now states I need another carb and engine gaskets replaced . This will cost almost as much as I paid for the unit . My other issue is the weight . I used it for trimming bushes and found after a short time the weight was a problem . I always used opti 2 lube to mix gas . it has a stabilizer in it and will run any ratio of mixes . This was not a cheap machine and each tool I bought was not cheap either . Now I have 3 tools sitting in my shop that are useless without power head . Jw
