2013 STIHL SH 56 C-E
Get ready for our new fuel efficient STIHL HomeScaper Series™ SH 56 C-E for occasional users. Powered by a low emissions engine, this handheld shredder vac/blower features the STIHL Easy2Start™ system, making starting almost effortless. While a specialized shredder blade on the fan wheel reduces yard waste, this shredder vac also converts easily into a handheld gas 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.
