Get ready for our new fuel efficient STIHL SH 56 for occasional users. While a specialised shredder blade on the fan wheel reduces garden waste, this shredder vac also converts easily into a handheld petrol leaf blower. Fitted with a semi-automatic choke and stop switch for smooth starts, this blower automatically resets to the starting position to help prevent accidental flooding.

Standard features

Reduced-emission engine technology

2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Multi-function control handle

This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.

Shoulder strap

The STIHL shoulder strap makes working for long periods of time less tiring, allowing for much more movement whilst holding the device securely.

Catalytic converter (D)

Considerably reduces the quantity of harmful particles in the exhaust gas.

Manual fuel pump (purger)

A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
