KM 91 R is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GETS THE JOB DONE! I really love this powerhead! I bought the hedge clippers (angle), chain saw and extension to go along with this head. All 4 are INCREDIBLE. I wish I had gotten them 20 years ago. Extremely easy to change out and switch between jobs. Great power and starts really easy. Does not vary with angles or directions. Highly recommend the extension if you ever think you will have something to cut higher. Couldn’t be more pleased. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product You can feel the quality of the KM91R as soon as you pick it up when compared to the others on the market - the others feel cheap. The Stihl feels solid as a rock. It took a little while to get the cold cranking down but once you do, it runs all day long without hesitation. It is heavier and more expensive than the others on the market but well worth it in the long run and love to hear it running - almost sounds like a Harley idling. There is a reason why Stihl is the brand preferred by the pros.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it but. On its first use it ran so poorly I had to stop, about 10 minutes. The next day same thing, rough running, no power. Maybe, 30 minutes of run time and I had to take it to a service dealer. Has to be card adjustment or fuel problem, but right out of the box. I had high hopes, this is not cheap, thought I was buying the best and that wasn't the case. Has been in the shop 3 days almost as long as I've had it. Shame on Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like my first one, I bought a second. My first KM series is the previous model and STIHL going strong. Bought the second one so I don't have to transport it back and forth to another property. Power and reliability have been good. If I could change one thing it would be the fuel tank vent. When you open it, it lets out a slight mist of fuel, even when the tank is almost empty. Hate the smell of gas on my hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine with one design flaw I bought this trimmer head with the FS-KM straight shaft trimmer attachment last year, and had no problems with it untill feburary of this year. Now, the power this unit has is awesome. For what I use it for it works great. HOWEVER, when transporting on a trailer rack, if the engine bounces up and down, it WILL break the engine mount for the shaft, therefore allowing the engine to spin when full throttle, thus not having alot of power and torque down at the head. It happened once with a rack I had that didn't have an engine support, so I got a new one with an engine support, and no more than 2 weeks later it broke again, back in the shop for more warranty work. This unit is a great unit for the 'heavy homeowner', not good if you store it on a trailer rack. This is the only major design flaw that I can see, other than that it is an awesome unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my KM91R I bought this unit because I needed a hedge trimmer with some reach, but saw the potential with all the attachments that I could handle a lot of jobs with this. The adjustable hedge trimmer works like a champ. With a gas hedge trimmer, I usually needed about an hour to hour and a half to do my hedges (larger yard), and some spots were almost impossible to reach. With the KombiSystem trimmer, it took me 25 minutes. Recently I added the cultivator because our garden got out of hand with weeds. I took the cultivator to it and it looks immaculate. Starting is easy, it runs and idles well. No drama, no fuss. Just works. For my needs, the 91 is JUST enough horsepower. If I had more cultivator work to do, I'd probably want a bit more horsepower than the 91. For hedge trimming it's plenty and then some. I'll be adding an edger, string trimmer, and blower over time. We'll see how they run on it. My biggest suggestion is to look for a good after-market harness. The shoulder strap is usable, but not great. Better than nothing, but a true harness is a better idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLASTIC GETS HOT I have the 91 r and all in all it's a great power head.The 4 stroke (4mix) runs more like a 4 stroke than a 2 stroke. The throttle Is less responsive than a 2 stroke. And it seems to only have 3 speeds low, medium and high. I dont see any problems with how it runs its just different than I expected. It's easy to start and warms up quick. My only real complaint is that the actual head gets very hot when running which normally wouldn't be a problem but when you turn it sideways to edge sometimes your arm may bump the plastic and it's hot enough that you cannot leave it there for very long without getting burned. The next model they should stand the plastic off of the motor a little taller to keep it from getting the plastics quite so hot. I have not owned it long enough to give a good review about the reliability And durability but I've owned other stihl products and I've been very pleased with how they hold up with through the years
