STIHL’s upgraded KombiEngine attachment

STIHL’s upgraded KombiEngine attachment: STIHL has enhanced its range of KombiEngine attachments with the launch of its new HT-KM pole pruner, which has been upgraded to improve both performance and durability.

Compatible with STIHL’s range of high-performance loop-handle KombiEngines, including the KM 111 R and new KMA 135 R, the new HT-KM is built to professional specifications in line with petrol HT pole pruners. Featuring a new magnesium gearbox housing, which replaces the polymer version on previous models, the upgraded pole pruner attachment offers higher levels of durability whilst still keeping the weight of the attachment to a minimum.

For ease of use and accuracy when cutting high branches, the HT-KM features a marked sight line as well as a lightweight sturdy magnesium branch hook. Additionally, the lateral shavings ejection port helps to reduce clogging and direct debris away from the user.

Along with a Rollomatic E Mini 10” bar, the HT-KM comes fitted with a new 3/8” Picco Micro low-kickback chain fitted as standard.

The pole pruner attachment can be easily stored away in reserve for additional tasks on jobs where dedicated equipment isn’t required, and can also be easily transported along with the wider fleet of tools.

The new enhanced HT-KM is just one of STIHL’s 13 KombiEngine attachments, and a further range of accessories are available for use with the tool, including an angled gearhead for better top cuts and an RTS harness for prolonged use.
