SPECIAL OFFER:  A free 100ml bottle of STIHL HP 2-Stroke Engine Oil is available when you order 1 item or more of selected products.

Simple, powerful and easy to use.

With a new starting system and ErgoStart technology, STIHL's SH 56 C-E blower / vacuum shredder is simple and easy to use.

Efficient & versatile

Powered by a low emission engine and very fuel efficient, these machines are designed for occasional users. A catalytic converter reduces harmful particles in the exhaust emissions. They can quickly relocate garden debris while in blower mode, or they can also be easily converted into a vacuum with a special shredder blade on the fan wheel to reduce garden waste. 

Comfortable operation

The shoulder strap makes working for long periods less tiring, as well as allowing much more movement while holding the machine securely. For safe operation, 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.

Powerful & easy to start

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. 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 the crankshaft, causing it to turn and ensuring reliable starting.
