Stihl KombiSystem Adds a Battery Powerhead – KMA 130 R KombiMotor

Stihl KombiSystem KMA 130 R Powerhead 01

Stihl KombiSystem Now Has a Battery Powerhead Option to go With its Gas Models

Whether you’re a Pro or maintaining your own property, the Stihl KombiSystem now has the KMA 130 R KombiMotor to give you all the benefits of the system without the need for gas.

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?

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.

Chances are you’re not looking at a battery system because it outperforms gas, but because it doesn’t use gas. 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.

MSRP on the Stihl KMA 130 R is $349.99 for just the powerhead. Batteries, chargers, and attachments are all separate. As usual, check with your local Stihl dealer to get a walkthrough with the product and more details.
