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.


Price may vary based on location and options.

STIHL Easy2Start™

The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL® outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL® products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

Shoulder Strap

The STIHL shoulder strap allows for greater maneuverability and helps reduce operator fatigue, allowing the user to work comfortably.

Multi-Function Control Handle

Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle helps makes it easier to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.

Purge Pump Primer

The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
