Stihl RG-KM Reciprocator Attachment (S3E16)

The Stihl RG-KM reciprocator attachment is a fairly new offering from Stihl. I decided to try these for a couple of reasons. First, I already had a Stihl Kombi head unit that I’ve owned for over a decade. Secondly, I have a pool and wanted something that did not sling grass debris into it.

About the Stihl RG-KM

I listed a few facts about the product below:

  • Up to 3,000 strokes per minute
  • Only available as a Kombi attachment
  • Does not sling grass (your shins are safe)
  • Great for high traffic areas

With the reciprocating action of its blades, the RG-KM Reciprocator attachment minimizes the potential for thrown debris, making it ideal for a range of terrain and conditions including the grass perimeter around golf bunkers, high-traffic areas and areas surrounding ponds, lakes or ditch banks. Up to 3,000 strokes per minute means relentless performance from blades that are quick and easy to remove and replace.

Precision Instrument!

Yes, this attachment is a precision, well-engineered product. It fits the Kombi head unit flawlessly, and performs even better. In the video below I demonstrate on some over-grown grass.

I let the grass edges go for almost 3 weeks so you can see it on video. Even then, it did not throw any grass in the pool. That is the biggest plus for getting this attachment.
