Stihl Kombi KM130

Hello, Just purchased this item. It has about 10 minutes of use so far. Love it in every way so far. My only concern is that the engine runs super smooth from 0-50% throttle. From 50-90% there is a small vibration, from 90-100% there is a bit more. Is this normal? Why would the engine run smoother at lower RPM's. You can even see the head unit shaking a bit at higher RPM's (close to 100% throttle) I am not convinced there is anything wrong with it, I think it mat be the fact its a single cylinder engine. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks, Aristole Zoulas, Warwick, NY

Vibrations within trimmers usually lend themselfs to loose or improperly aligned power heads or shaft / cable components . Ensure yours is installed correctly and all fasteners are tight , including the powerhead along with adequate lubrication of shaft .
