The STIHL SH56 blower vacuum has an easy starting system and ErgoStart technology, is simple and easy to use, perfect for occasional use.
The 2-stroke STIHL engine provides a good power-to-weight ratio, low fuel consumption and reduced emissions with the help of stratified charge, which separates the burned and fresh charge to reduce fuel lost during the flushing process. A catalytic converter reduces harmful particles in the exhaust emissions. ErgoStart simplifies starting by making use of a spring fitted between the crankshaft and starter rope, tensioning when the rope is pulled and transferring this stored energy to the crankshaft, causing it to turn and ensuring reliable starting.
You can quickly move garden leaves and debris while in blower mode, or you can easily convert the machine into a vacuum including a shredder blade on the fan wheel to reduce the waste.
The shoulder strap makes working for longer less tiring, as well as allowing more movement while holding the machine securely. For safe use, all of the engine controls are located on a multi-function handle, which allows the user to operate the machine without having to move their hand. A manual fuel pump allows you to simply press a button to transfer fuel to the carburettor, reducing the amount of starting strokes required after long periods of inactivity.
