Shredder Vacs

STIHL shredder vacs are all about shredding yard waste without shredding your budget. Each STIHL shredder vac is actually two powerful tools in one: A powerful shredder capable of transforming the equivalent of 14 bags of dry leaves into a single bag of clippings, as well as a fuel-efficient blower. And it comes standard with the necessary parts to convert easily to a handheld blower and back to a shredder, depending on your task. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature and E = Easy2Start™.

After the leaves and yard clippings have been gathered, it’s time to shred. Each STIHL shredder vac features a specially designed shredder blade located on the fan wheel. This efficient design reduces yard waste at a 14:1 ratio for dry leaves. And as it shreds, the clippings accumulate in a secure, easy-open zippered bag for convenient emptying. The tube makes it easy to get in and between shrubs and other hard-to-reach places.
