Rated 5 out of 5 by Just get it! Wanted a tool to clear tall grass, cat tails, small brush you name it. This thing is unbelievable. Takes and cuts anything that fits it the cutting slots. Bought this and the chain saw pole pruner. Theres nothing that I can't clean up. JK July 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by An awesome little gem! I wish I had found out about this tool a long time ago. I break out from poison ivy really easily, and have quite a bit on my property. This cutter doesn't fling the clippings like a string head, so I'm confident that my itchy rash after trimming is a thing of the past. It also does an excellent job on multi-flora rose, which likes to eat trimmer string for lunch. The trimmer motor doesn't seem to work as hard with this cutter as it does with a string head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great attachment This attachment is great for trimming around my pond without throwing grass in the water, but I have started using it more for my other trimming jobs, it just lays the grass down instead slinging it everywhere. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Poison ivy tool I got this tool set-up because Mil place has lots of poison ivy and it got all over me last year. Scythe with KM110 is a little heavy but does what I got it for. Trimmed some ivy coming through a chain link fence, about 100ft and had to swap the side I was holding it on, but it turned out well. Good tool. June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets the job done. We have a half acre with radom vegitation from neighbors. The briars were over my head, so using loppers means wearing the pickery stalks that I cut. The power scythe cut those stalks and none of them could reach me when they fell. The 3foot tall grass that would get wound up on a weed eater was sheared off like a barber did the job. Fruit tree suckers and leveling the tree umbrella was a snap. The unit works upside down until you rub the kill switch against your hip. The only two problems I ran into the scythe will cut a wire fence and it will pick up a small rock. When it does, the reminder is a dinged blade. Even so the tool continued to operate as though it was just another weed or twig. When I was done, after 4 tanks of gas, I was not all green as the weed eater would leave me. Also i could hardly get through one tank of gas on the weed eater because of the vibration. One more time Stihl proves they have the right stuff. It is a might heavy so I bought the shoulder harness, it is not to heavy now. May 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awkward to use for a smaller person. I have an excess of salmonberry bushes and smallish alder trees and was so looking forward to mowing them down with the power scythe. Unfortunately, the scythe attachment is heavier than other Kombi attachments I have used, and because of its length, difficult for me at five foot five inches to use with any precision. I guess I'll go back to my little chainsaw. September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great Bought this for underwater grass/weed control in a pond - works great, just keep the grease level full! July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great all around trimming bushes, brush, and even trees It really is a great all around product.It will easily cut through pencil thick branches or brush like it is nothing. You can pretty easily cut 3/8" think material. I have even used it to cut through larger than 1/2" thick pieces. The larger pieces just take a few seconds.It works great for cutting everything from grass to brush and even small trees. It doesn't throw debris even an inch which is nice if you are working around other people or mulch beds.The edges are very sharp. Even after several hours of use trimming trees cutting grass looks like you used scissors.It did an amazing job on my neighbors out of control multifloral rose bushes that are 7' tall and 60 feet long.The angle adjustments are quick and easy to use. Changing positions can be done without clipping the harness in 2 seconds. It is possibly to adjust the angle further towards 90 degrees than there are positions for. The first time I did this accidentally when I started trimming again there was a slight gear whining sound. I stopped to check what was causing it and found that I had adjusted it past the first position. No damage was done though.I highly recommended it. The only reason I would see to get the adjustable hedge trimmer attachment over this is if you had lots of evergreen hedges to cut and wanted the cutting edge to reach across the entire hedge in once pass. For anything else I think you'll be happier with the power scythe over the hedge trimmer. June 4, 2013
