The STIHL SH86 blower vacuum is the most popular of Stihl’s blower vacs with its easy starting system and ErgoStart technology, it is simple and easy to use, perfect for homeowners & professionals alike.

An outstanding feature of this machine is the ability to easily convert it between blowing and shredder vacuuming modes. The addition of a special shredder blade on the fan wheel allows you to reduce garden waste as it goes into the collection bag. The vacuum bag includes an integrated shoulder strap, which reduces user fatigue and allows for more movement while working.

The SH 86 C-E has one-handled control, with soft-grip that enables a secure and comfortable hold on the machine. Combining with this, STIHL's anti-vibration technology, it works to dampen the engine's movement, which in turn significantly reduces vibrations at the machine's handles.

This is an easy machine to use, in regards to easily being able to switch between blow and vacuum modes, but also STIHL's ErgoStart technology, included as standard with this machine. ErgoStart makes the starting process reliable and reducing the effort in starting compared to machines without the technology. This model also benefits from a throttle lock with built-in stop switch, ideal for safety, and a HD2 filter that is easy to clean.

Stihl products come with a two year domestic warranty or a one year professional warranty (This is dependent on registration of your item. If all details are provided at point of order and you have agreed for us to store and pass your details on to Stihl, we will register this on your behalf.)


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 strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

HD2 Filter - The HD2 filter, made from polyethylene filter material, has pores that are up to 70% finer than those of fleexe and polyamide filters and therefore eliminates even the finest dust. In addition, it repels oil and water and is therefore very easy to clean. The PET filter cartridge can be removed and inserted without tools.

One handled control with soft grip area - For a secure and comfortable grip. 

Throttle lock with built in stop switch - The running machine switches off immediately after a brief press of a button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically, meaning it is always ready to start.

Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to longer-term effects of blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL have therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system where by the oscillations from the machines engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles allowing for more comfortable and safer operation.

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.
