The Stihl SH 86-CE is not just for getting-rid of fallen leaves during the autumn – it’s also suitable for the disposal of hedge and shrub-trimmings, twigs, grass-clippings and similar organic garden-debris throughout the year.
Its powerful 1.1hp (27.2)cc two-stroke engine employs Stihl’s stratified-charge technology, which not only reduces fuel-consumption by up to 20-percent, but also significantly lessens the emission of harmful exhaust particulates.
A manual fuel-primer ensures ignition from cold won’t prove a problem; while ErgoStart means that minimal pulling-force is required to get the engine going.
Equipped with a rugged shredding impellor, the Stihl SH 86-CE Vacuum Shredder reduces the volume of vacuumed debris to around a tenth of its original volume; in turn saving space in the collection-bag (the resulting mulch makes a great composting material).
The inclusion of both a round tube and a flat curved tube makes it possible to convert your machine into a powerful blower for the piling-up of debris prior to vacuuming.
Combining weight-reduction measures with a shoulder-strap and an ergonomic soft-grip handle, the Stihl SH 86-CE is ideal for long periods of continuous use (it weighs just 5.6kg).
Stihl’s advanced four-point anti-vibration system ensures very little strain is placed upon the operator’s hands and arms.
A gutter-cleaning kit can be purchased as an optional accessory.
