The STIHL SH 86 C-E petrol vacuum shredder is a versatile tool suitable for various tasks such as shredding and blowing. It excels in extended usage across large areas, making it a valuable choice for both professional landscapers and homeowners. This efficient leaf vacuum serves dual purposes – vacuuming and blowing – catering to a wide range of applications.

Powered by a STIHL 2-MIX engine, the tool offers a combination of power and comfort. The engine is equipped with STIHL ErgoStart, which simplifies the starting process by compensating for load peaks, reducing the effort required. The manual fuel pump aids in carburetor filling, minimizing the start-up strokes and conserving energy. The vacuum shredder comes with a variable speed control, ensuring that it operates with optimal power at all times. The throttle lever, including a stop button, can be precisely locked, enabling ergonomic one-handed operation with a soft-grip zone. While you work, the STIHL anti-vibration system minimizes strain on your muscles and joints.

The SH 86 C-E vacuum shredder proves effective even in challenging areas like corners where leaves tend to accumulate. Its high-quality steel star-shaped shredder efficiently processes debris, with the shredded material conveniently collected in the 45-litre storage bag. For applications involving dust, an optional dust-reducing collection bag, with a capacity of 45 litres, can be purchased.

The leaf blower comes with a standard flat nozzle and round nozzle for blowing tasks. A curved flat nozzle can be purchased separtley to enhance performance.
