    Stihl KM130R KombiMotor and KombiSystem Attachment Review

    So many of us talk about string trimmers, blowers and brush cutters that we wanted to do review of a system that offers you the most versatile system available. The Stihl KombiSystem has been around for a while and is really catching on in residential and commercial applications. The amount of attachments are growing and its capabilities are endless as everyone has something they can do to make this system work for their specific needs.

    If you have not seen this system, here is a link to it on Stihl's Website. Yard Care - STIHL KombiSystem and the STIHL YARD BOSS® Multi Task Tools | STIHL USA Mobile

    I enlisted John from Workshop Addict to help out with this review as we have different applications that we can both use this system for. We will go more in depth on the attachments and continue to add more videos to this thread.

    Nice video, Brian. I have been contemplating the Kombi system for a while. Maybe this will help me pull the trigger on one and some attachments.

    Very impressive (getting John to do all the work that is!)

    That's a cool system, I wish I had bought into it years ago myself.

    Looks interesting. I've thought about the system a few times, but not sure if it's for me.

    I'll be following along!

    When I bought this house 17 years ago my buddy gave me a Ryobi 715 convertable string trimmer. I bought the tiller/cultivator. 14 years later I thought it was time to give that great tool a rest and upgrade to the Kombi KM110, straight trimmer, edger, brush saw, hedge trimmer, pole saw and one extension. I thought the Kombi 2 tine cultivator was a bit... wimpy looking in comparuison so the Ryobi with it's 4 tines still has that attached and works perfectly.

    As with all my Stihl stuff it never fails to start inside 2-3 pulls and I've not yet run into the need for the larger size engine with my jobs. I'd thought about that blower attachment, but I have a Stihl BG85 hand held and it makes any other blower here unnecessary. I'm a Stihl fan right along with Deere products and my dealer sells both. Handy!

    BTW, that pole saw is NO TOY! It is a true chainsaw on a stick and really handy. However, reaching out horizontally maintaining my juniper bushes is a real workout! Especially using the pole extension! I guess I must be getting old...

    My first split boom trimmer was a Ryobi...that POS lasted two seasons before I threw it away because getting and keeping the motor started and running was next to impossible right from the get go.

    My second one was a JD (Echo?) and I got 9-years of use out of it before the motor finally gave me problems.

    My third and current one is an Echo, and I may look into the power broom for it. I had the mini cultivator for the Deere and I was surprised at how well it worked. Although the tube sizes are similar, the Deere attachments wouldn't fit the Echo. GRRR! I gave the Deere attachments to a buddy and he says they fit his ancient McCollough.

    Maybe the next one will be a Stihl, which I hope won't be for a long time. As a homeowner, I'm sold on the split boom units because of the attachments.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Works just like mine! However, I cheat and use the line trimmer for cleanup because I don't have the broom... yet!

    I just finished brushing out a hemlock/maple thicket with the trimmer saw, another Kombi success!

    And Brian didn't have to hunch over to do the edging as his Workshop Addict cohort Tug did when using his Sawzall.
