Stihl KombiSystem Goes Electric With New KombiMotor

Stihl KombiMotor Brings Battery Power To the KombiSystem Lineup

The KMA 130 R KombiMotor joins Stihl’s KombiSystem – a multi-head attachment lawn care system -giving users a battery option for powering any one of a variety of lawn tools.

10-Second Summary

  • Model: Stihl KMA 130 R KombiMotor
  • Brushless 36V motor
  • Compatible with all AP Series batteries
  • Works with all KombiSystem attachments
  • Lifetime warranty on the solid steel shaft
  • Multi-function control handle with 3 speed levels and variable speed trigger
  • Tool-free coupling for attachments
  • Water-resistant build
  • MSRP: $349.99 for the powerhead


What’s The Big Deal?

With 16 lawn care attachments, the Stihl KomibiSystem might be the most comprehensive multi-head system on the market at the moment. The KMA 130 R KombiMotor only helps with the system’s comprehensiveness. This motor is compatible with all of the Stihl 36V AP Series batteries, as well as all of the KombiSystem attachments.

The big deal with it is that, for Pros or homeowners that already use the system, the Stihl KombiMotor provides a battery option for those communities with strict noise and emissions ordinances. It has a straight, steel drive shaft and a multi-function control handle that you can adjust with one hand. A rubberized loop handle makes carrying the powerhead a more comfortable experience.

Switching out KombiSystem attachments is a painless job as well, what with the KombiMotor’s toolless quick-release coupling system.  Because the system can be dismantled into two parts, it’s simple to store and transport the entire system. It even comes with a vertical hanging slot for easier storage.

The KMA 130 R weighs in at 7.1 lbs, features a brushless motor, and reaches a max speed of 8,500 RPM. It features 3 speed settings as well: 0-6,300/0-7,200/0-8,500 RPM.

The Stihl KombiMotor retails for $349. Batteries, chargers, and attachments are all sold separately.

What Stihl Has To Say About It

“The battery-powered Stihl KMA 130 R KombiMotor can power up to 13 existing Stihl KombiSystem attachments, the same attachments available for the gas-powered Kombi system. With one powerhead, professionals can streamline their operations by saving on storage space and maintenance of multiple units.”
