The STIHL SHA 56 cordless leaf vacuum makes it possible to efficiently vacuum up leaves and hedge trimmings and shred them directly in the power tool itself, for domestic and professional work on smaller areas in domestic settings. Leaves can even be picked up for shredding from rockeries or on gravel paths. The STIHL SHA 56 cordless leaf vacuum is also an effective power tool for clearing leaves, paper and other blowable material. Depending on your requirements, you can convert the STIHL SHA 56 from vacuum to blowing mode in just a few simple steps, with no need for tools.

Its quiet operation, electric motor and lithium-ion battery from the STIHL AK-System mean that the STIHL SHA 56 cordless leaf vacuum is also great for cleaning in noise-sensitive areasVariable speed control enables you to continuously adjust the suction and blowing power to suit your specific requirements. In both operating modes, the rotatable handle of the SHA 56 cordless leaf vacuum promotes an ergonomic working posture with comfortable operation.

During the shredding process, the metal star-shaped shredder shreds cuttings efficiently, especially leaves and hedge trimmings. The shredded material is transported directly into the 40-litre collection bag of the STIHL SHA 56. The collection bag hangs directly on the vacuum shredder, so you don’t have to carry it over your shoulder. Just a few simple steps are needed to attach it, while its asymmetrical shape provides you with plenty of legroom. A very long zip makes it easy to empty out the shredded material.

The extra-wide diameter of the blower wheel opening is easily accessible, making it simple to clean. Glide easily over hard surfaces with the conical blower tube. The STIHL SHA 56 comes with a two-step length-adjustable blower tube, adjustable to your height. Its side recesses stop the pipe from getting stuck to the ground or the vacuumed material during vacuum shredding. Cleaning the STIHL SHA 56 is no problem courtesy of the large opening on the housing. Optional accessories such as a curved STIHL flat nozzle enable you to use the STIHL SHA 56 more effectively for blowing work on larger areas.
