What’s the Big Deal?
The big deal is that the Stihl KombiSystem now has a battery-powered powerhead. The KMA 130 R Stihl KobiMotor is compatible with all AP Series 36V battery options. For homeowners, a few individual batteries might be your best bet. For Pros, a backpack battery is the best way to go if you have more than just a couple of noise/emission sensitive clients.
As far as attachments go, the Stihl KombiMotor is compatible with the entire suite of KombiSystem attachments. Looking at the blower specs, it looks like there’s a bit less power in this system than the Professional gas powerheads, but that’s not really a surprise.

All of the noise, emission, and maintenance benefits are here, so feel free to maintain your lawn at 6:00 AM on Saturday morning. Combined with an iMow, you can have your yard work done and still make the 7:30 group ride at your local bike shop.
