I just picked up a Stihl km130R, with a pole saw, extension, FS head, and a brush cutter kit. All totaled, close to 1K. The whole reason I bought it was to try out the Brush Knife that Brian was talking about, then the purchase grew from there., I really got to stay out of the JD dealership for awhile. So all was great, but they shorted me the nut and thrust washer for attaching the blade. By the time I was done playing with the pole saw and the string trimmer, the JD dealer was closed. That will have to wait til monday. The pole saw works great, I should have got one of those years ago. I'm trying to figure out how to start it without digging the chain in the dirt. Putting it on the pallet forks works, but I don't always have the tractor handy.
How do the rest of you like the Kombi units?
