Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my km110.... This KM131R is a rock and roller. More power. Better feel. Same quality as the 15 year old km110 I replaced it with. And I only replaced the km110 because I was 'tired' of it and wanted something new and new is what I got. One nice machine!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Power is there, but leaks gas everywhere I've owned this powerhead for 2 weeks, used it once approx. 5 minutes and leaks gas everywhere in my trailer. Took it back to the dealer, had it serviced and still leaks gas, more than before. Dealer only refunds after 10 days, so I cant exchange for a new one nor can I get a refund due to dealer and STIHL policy. For an expensive power head that is BRAND NEW, I am very upset with the fact that the unit is now in round #2 of being repaired within 2 weeks of owning. I would understand the policy being in place if this was a year old machine with tons of hours on it but for something so new and had an extremely light use, this is unacceptable. Never had an issue with my dealer nor Stihl until now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you Buy.... Buy this one! Even though this is listed as a "professional" level power unit, if you are going the Kombi route, get this power unit. I've used the others, and this one is really the only one that has the power to run anything other than a string trimmer attachment efficiently. Yes, it's pricey, but it's proven to be more dependable than the lesser power units, and has the power to run ANY of the Kombi attachments. Before buying, I tested all the available power units, and as I said, any of them will run a string trimmer, but this is the only available power unit that will run any attachment well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KM 131 R handles all of its tasks with power to spare I purchased my STIHL KOMBI KM 131 R powerhead with the following attachments: HT-KM Pole Pruner, HT/HL-KM CFK Carbon Shaft Extension, HL KM Adjustable Hedge Trimmer, and FS-KM Line Head Trimmer. I not only have less engine maintenance to perform but I also have less equipment to clutter my truck. I have 70 ac of forested land to maintain. The KM 131 R performs all trimming and trail upkeep with power to spare. I wanted quieter, more powerful, and dependable power tools. The KOMBI KM 131 R system is a great addition to my other STIHL power equipment. I highly recommend STIHL power tools. They have always performed above my expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still getting used to it. Upgraded from a 56 Almost had mine a month and seems to be a pretty good product so far. My only complaints are with the strait edger and blower attachment. The edger is a little flimsy and wants to bounce around when you get in very compacted dirt and put some force down on it. The blower doesn’t seem to want to go wide open. The engine kind of bogs down at full throttle and I have to press it 1/2 to 3/4 of the way for it to blow the most wind. I guess I should take it in and see if it’s running right. Other than that it does what I bought it for. Save a little time. Haven’t got to test it on any thick Bahia though yet. We’ll see

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful enough for all Kombi uses Very powerful compared to Kombi 94R I have been using. Used this one only a short time but it starts quickly and runs very well so far. The extra power makes a difference on the blade and pole saw attachments. In my experience with many STIHL products over the years, it’s worth it to upgrade to their professional line. They are hard to beat and most will outlast you if you maintain them as required. Do not use ethanol fuel!!!!!!!!! It destroys everything in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly reliable and versitile I own both a KM 130 and a 90. We started out with the 90 when we only owned about 1/3 of an acre. Now we own 40 acres so we bought another KM and of course went with the big gun for this particular purchase. These things always start and run strong till their outta fuel. No issues no matter how you abuse them. The 130 does offer some extra power for the demands of the larger attachments or just cutting through heavy weeds/brush which we have plenty of. I do wish it had a little more though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent System I had a tree down on my carport following a storm. The pruning saw made it easy to cut limbs without having to stand on a ladder beneath the limbs I was sawing. The trims were fast and clean and the saw was easy to start and operate.
