Stihl KM130R Kombi System 4 Mix Gas Trimmer and Attachments
My brother just bought this Stihl KM130R Gas Trimmer system and I thought
you might like a look at it. It's powered by Stihl's 4 Mix engine, putting
out 1.9 HP. The engine has valves like a four cycle engine, but you still
mix the gas and oil like a two stroke. It offers a lot of power for it's
size. There are numerous attachments available for these and I covered five
of them in the video. There are other attachments available, like a hedge
trimmer, an edger, a sweeper, and even a cultivator. The ability to add an
extended shaft for longer reach definitely makes it even more versatile. I
hope you find it interesting....thanks for taking a look!

rebuild order K20-WAT.
There are special tools for checking both Zama, and Walbro carburetor
metering levers but I have found that a metal straight edge ruler is just

purge bulb. I will do a proper video when I have an actual rebuild or

I would like to fix this one but finding a new drive shaft may be
difficult. Since it's pretty much worthless without a tank, starter,
gearbox, drive cable, and a cutting head I will keep it here.
The fire station has six or seven Stihl brush cutters. Most of them have 4
mix engines. If the office doesn't want this one I will ask if I can fix it
Without a parts trimmer in decent condition this repair may not be
I found a publicly available parts diagram.
Removed the cylinder to check the piston, rings, con. rod, and cylinder
walls. Everything looks good but I would like to replace the cylinder due
to broken cooling fins.

What's a Freeze Plug???
One good way to inspect your freeze plugs or check for leaks is with one of

I really was not feeling well enough to record video. That is why three of
the four clips are warm starts.
