Shredder Vacs

Efficient shredding of leaves and yard clippings

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.

    Mechanically great! The bag needs improvement..
    The inner sleeve fails after one season. The bag itself is tough and durable. However, when the inner sleeve begins to tear or fray, leaves catch on the sleeve and block entry into the bag. If the sleeve was made of a material as durable as the bag, it would likely last longer. I hope Stihl has improved the design when we order a replacement bag. Like printers where you have to buy their ink, Still has us hooked to buy their replacement bags.

    powerful Vac
    This vac is amazing.I didn't believe it would work so well when I bought it and actually expected to bring it back. This thing is so powerful that it actually sucked up the new plants in my garden. I have a lot of Bamboo plants and they shed large leaves but this thing sucks them up and sheads them like nothing. It took me about a half hour to get used to it because of the powerful vac action. I've used it about 6 hours now and no problems with it.

    Based on vac function only
    Used to vacuum yard full of sycamore leaves. Initially would have to constantly disassemble the bag and elbow assembly to unclog the elbow. Discovered on 2nd day of use that I needed to run at higher RPM to maintain a forceful airflow thru the elbow. Never clogged again. Looking forward to using the blower this spring/summer. One con, based on the elbow/bag assembly, the adjustment of the bag sling is critical to maintain an open airway into the bag. Being critical of a great tool, otherwise I ... read more give it 5 stars.

    It's great being cordless!
    I love not having to deal with an electrical cord. I am a small, older female, and needed a vac/blower that wasn't too heavy & started easily. This product accomplishes these requirements for me. I do have a little difficulty in pushing the tabs with a tool to change the tools! But can live with it. I think if you were stronger & had bigger hands this might not be an issue, just an annoyance. My husband likes using this product, except push tabs, too. Haven't had/used enough to know about the ... read more maintenance aspect.

    This thing is great
    I bought this blower vac this spring to clean up last leafs leaves. This machine will clog if you try to suck up too many wet leaves. So I had to scatter them with the blower configuration then after they had some time in the sun to dry this machine in the vacuum configuration easily sucked them all up. I have been very please with this machine. Sense the leave clean up it gets used once a week to clean off my patio and sidewalks. It so far has been very easy to start. I will update this review ... read more once the machine gets some age on it

    Very versatile machine
    After reading some reviews concerning decoupling of the tubes, I was somewhat leery of buying this machine. Using a T15 Torx makes releasing the locking nut simple and easy. The throttle has great response to allow me to suction leaves off of #57 limestone in my window wells and near the foundation. The machine is lightweight and easy to handle. I've only used the machine twice, once as a vacumm, and once as a blower, but I have no resrvations concerning long-term use since I own several other ... read more Stihl machines including a 25 year old chainsaw.
