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 5.7kg). 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.

BrilliantReview by Chris / (Posted on 09/10/2016)I did my due diligence before ordering, as the Stihl kit is quite expensive. This purchase reinforces my belief that you get what you pay for. The machine is light and comfortable to use, almost vibration free, and the easiest 2-stroke start I have ever come across.
I own a small holding on Bodmin Moor, so I needed a professional quality machine. The Stihl coped with everything including small twigs and produced a great mulch. The bag is large enough to cope, any bigger and it would be too heavy. The only negative I can think of is that the powerful vacuum tended to suck up the gravel borders so care is needed if using on loose material.
