Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engine sounds tinggy First thing I noticed is that the unit engine sounds tinggy? Not sure if this is normal with the new 2 cycle engines but my old Stihl blower did not sound like this. Someone told me that it has something to do with a new muffler and that it would go away after awhile? Other thing is that I thought there would be more power with this new unit. I use it to blow off the motorcycle and truck after I wash them. Just thought it would have more blowing power. One last thing is that the unit feels wobbly when pulling the starting cord (I have the SH86). Possible because of the rubber mounted engine?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power tool for cleaning my roof Our home has a metal roof with horizontal courses to appear like shingles. Our roof is plagued with needles, small twigs and cones from the Douglas Fir trees close to our house. The needles collect under the lip side if the metal shingles, around the skylight bases and under the flashing on the edges of the roof. I didn’t buy the shredder vac to clean the roof, but got the idea is might be better than sweeping or using my Stihl blower and moving the mess to the deck and walks. My Stihl 85CE is perfect for cleaning the dry needles and roof mess. I agree the bag could be improved. The dust gets on my arm and side and requires laundering my work clothes and I need to shower. It’s a great power tool!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too slow for the size of my yard I purchased this vac/shredder to clear the leaves from my lawn. It does shred leaves and small stick quite well, however, it will take many days to clear my lawn at the pace the shredder works. I need to find a better way to clear my lawn of leaves than using this shredder. Since you are shredding leaves, be prepared for a lot of dust in the process. The machine and bag are bulky and difficult to carry for any length of time. After awhile, I just let the bag drag on the ground instead of holding it on my shoulder with the strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade I had a Stihl Shreddder/Vac for 11 years and just wore it out so I purchased the SH86 C-E. It is definitely a significant upgrade from my old SH 85. New one is quieter, has a lot of design updates which I really like, and the anti vibration feature really makes a difference. The only thing I wish would have changed is the changeover process to vac. I was hoping that tools would not be needed but a screwdriver is still needed to unlock the guard and blower tube. Not a big deal but just means you have to have a tool handy. Only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is that I am still having a bit of difficulty starting it, but each time I use it it gets easier. So this is probably due to it getting broken in and me getting used to a new starting process. Overall I really like the quality and performance of this great blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Used twice in the 1st 30 days, does a great job. Plastic housing seems rather questionable as its very thin and gives way very easily but no issues to date.
