SH 56 C-E

Get ready for our new fuel efficient STIHL SH 56 C-E for occasional users. Powered by a low emissions engine, this handheld shredder vac/blower features the STIHL ErgoStart system, making starting almost effortless. 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.

Features

SH 56 C-E

Standard features

  • Reduced-emission engine technology Zoom
    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.

  • Catalytic converter (D) Zoom
    Catalytic converter (D)

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

  • Manual fuel pump (purger) Zoom
    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.

  • STIHL ErgoStart (E)
    STIHL ErgoStart (E)

    A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
    Multi-function control handle

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

  • Integrated shoulder strap for vacuum bag Zoom
    Integrated shoulder strap for vacuum bag

    The integrated shoulder strap makes vacuuming for long periods of time less tiring. Allowing for much more movement whilst helping to support the weight of the collection bag.
