This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't use anything else I have always used stihl products and love them. If stihl made a gas powered pushmower along side there battery mower i would buy a gas powered one in a heartbeat and sell my current mower. I would love to be an all Stihl person. Love there products and never think about buying anything else. April 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool I have been very impressed by this tool. Lots of power and great quality. My only gripe is that it really isn't made for tall people. I am 6'04" and I have to bend down quite a bit. Still I am very impressed. The people over at Chino Mower have been great to. The crew there is always friendly and willing to answer all my questions. Thumbs up to Stihl and Chino Mower February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to start bought for the power sweep. i cant believe how easy this to start even at 10 degrees f. this has good power. will by more attchments soon. January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy with purchase I am very happy with this Kombi unit, it starts very easy thanks to the easy start feature. I will stay with that feature in future purchases.I purchased this to use the power sythe for trimming around the pond and not throw grass in the pond, and now I use it for most of my trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I bought this Kombi power head with a string trimmer 20 years ago based on recommendation of Reynold's in Fishers Indiana. Still statrs easy and runs strong. Good power in lightweight unit. I bought a brush head attachment recently to clear heavy weèds and light brush. When I asked about what brush attachment would be best, the same salesman that helped me 20 years ago still the record of my unit! I've bought several pro saws and a leaf blower...All Stihl of course. Every Stihl I have start and run great. I do always use ethanol free gas with Stihl Ultra 2 cycle mix. Stihl products , advice, parts and service on as far away as your nearest Stihl dealer. Dont even think that you can get this at a big box store. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product saves me time I had looked a kombi system for a few years. After my old weedeater finally bit the dust I took the plunge. I asked my stihl rep if it was really worth going to the pro series and she assured me this would be plenty powerful enough for me, and boy was she right. It starts like a dream and runs like a champ. I picked up the straight shaft weedeater and the hedge trimmer and there is no doubt in my mind I made the right decision just wish I had done it sooner. I can't wait to add more tools to get even more use. October 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best one I ever owned Nice to change heads very easy to do saves a lot of time August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adequate power for edging and easy to start. The kombi system accepts ryobi attachments without a issue. This power head has more than enough power to edge with and I stepped down from the commercial line due to the power in this head. Great tool and easy to start. Get the stihl gas and extend the warranty another year. August 30, 2014
