Product Description

The Stihl SH86 C-E Petrol Blower/Vac is a remarkably versatile Power Blower-cum-Vac that quickly deals with a host of garden debris material including leaves, twigs, moss and weeds. It features an advanced shredding tool on the fan that effectively chops and slices through the debris as it reaches the vacuum bag, reducing the volume considerably and allowing the machine to be in operation for longer before the collector bag needs emptying. Shredded garden waste will compost at a quick rate, take up less space and can be used as a mulch, providing versatile options for the control of large quantities of garden waste.

The Stihl8 6C-E Petrol Blower is extremely easy to use, weighing only 5.6kg and featuring a convenient shoulder strap on the vacuum bag, providing hours of comfortable handling. The soft-grip handle has been ergonomically designed and the controls are ideally placed for accessibility. Thanks to the innovative Stihl ErgoStart system, the starter cord requires only a third of the effort to ignite the engine when compared to similar machines, enabling trouble-free starting every time.

Stihl technology has developed and improved four spring anti-vibration mechanism to significantly reduce the harmful effects that can be caused to the nerves and arteries when using power tools for long spells, ensuring garden tasks can be completed without interruption. With sound pressure at 33dB(A) it is also much kinder to hearing. The vacuum collector bag features the fine mesh HD2 filter of polyethene which has pores that are up to 70% smaller than on similar models, ensuring that the harmful effects of dust inhalation are virtually eliminated. The PET filter cartridge can be fitted without tools.

The superior two-stroke engine features a fuel reduction system that is effective by at least 20% than an average two-stroke engine by creating a layer of air around the combustion chamber providing economy with no loss of power. The manual fuel pump or purger that ensures petrol flows efficiently to the carburettor is easily controlled at the touch of a button and reduces the amount of starter pulls needed. Exhaust emissions are incredibly low making the Stihl 86 C-E Petrol Blower/Vac an environmentally friendly option when dealing with garden chores. Easy to maintain and comfortable for extended use, this powerful, versatile blower/vac is economically fuel-efficient.

    I always thought that leaf blowers were a bit of a gimmick but I couldn’t have more wrong. I normally spend hours raking the leaves in the garden but no longer. The Stihl made quick work of sucking the leaves into the bag. So impressed that I shall be buying a second machine for my holiday home. As usual Radmore and Tucker are always very competitively priced and provide free postage.

    Excellent machine, easy start, great blower, in suction mode it readily collects and shreds leaves although care is needed on a gravel covered yard as it will readily pick up stones which could damage the cutter and fan.
    A bit fiddly to assemble but that maybe just my old arthritic hands.
    Changing the blower/suction nozzles could be made easier and do away with the need to find a screwdriver to depress the locking tab.
    Having said that I am very pleased with this addition to my Stihl stable.
    I would not hesitate to buy again from Radmore and Tucker as said above, competitive price and next day delivery.

    I am very pleased with this machine. Powerful enough for my needs around the garden. I recently hollow core aerated my lawns and the plugs that this job left were easily blown into the borders with this Stihl. Great quality build from Stihl. Great quality service from Radmore

    Great bit of kit.
    I’ve had a B&Q blower/vac for several years and was never very happy with it. What a difference with the Stihl !
    Blower is powerful but light and easy to handle whilst in Vac mode it sucks up leaves with gusto and sheds them perfectly.
    My only criticism is the time it takes to switch from blow to suck (different fittings needed for each task) but that’s a small inconvenience when it performs so well.

    1. £248.50 is a good price – not seen it at the rrp (£380) but still represents really good value.
    2. Prompt delivery & well packaged.
    3. Easy to assemble, although the method used for locking tubes in place is fiddly – eg. to change from vac to blow, you have to take the pipe off of the fan and add a different pipe to where the bag is attached. The plastic connectors twist to lock them into place and require a screwdriver (or similar) to release them. A simple ‘reverse’ switch would be much more user friendly but clearly is not an option here.
    4. Really powerful….. so powerful, in fact, that it sucked up a long, dried cordyline leaf from nearly 2ft away. These are tough, stringy, nasty leaves that you could make rope with. Anyway, having consumed it, the leaf became wrapped around the blade and motor shaft. It then got so hot that it melted the plastic fan ’til it snapped and broke off! Only had it for 1 day and it’s already in for repair. In future I recommend keeping well away from anything that might wrap around the motor shaft and blade.
    5. The bag and shoulder strap is brilliant – stores a lot of shredded leaves and is really easy to empty.
    6. All in all, an excellent buy….. just be careful what you suck up!

    4. Would recommend this company to others.

    Good machine, (which I’d expect from Stihl), lightweight and easy to start. Suction is a great improvement on the cheaper one I’ve had for the last nine years. The only disappointment, and the reason I haven’t given 5 stars, is the cheap and nasty vacuum and blower nozzles. The plastic is so thin that the vacuum almost sucks the sides in and assembling/disassembling them is a nuisance. The nozzles were far better made and easier to fit and remove on my older, cheaper model. Nonetheless, my initial test on leaves that have fallen recently was very impressive and it will serve the purpose when the autumn comes. Communication and delivery were very good.

    Very useful piece of kit, good for sucking up fine conifer needles and leaves rather than them ending up in my drains. Takes a few minutes to swap between blower / vac but not long, seems fuel efficient.
    Delivered on time from R+T as usual and excellent value.

    Easy to start and use (its a Stihl), only tried it to blow debris in parking area (waitingfor the leaves to fall !!)
    Excellent service from Radmore and Tucker, great communications, superfast delivery and course competitive price.
    What more could you want.

    Fab service as ever from Radmore & Tucker. Although they are local to me they are still the best for combination of price and service nationally. Even though I was happy to collect given Covid, they went the extra mile and even delivered to my home free of charge. Machine was PDI’d and setup / fuelled and as expected ran straight out of the box. Fantastic service and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Machine itself is great and as you would expect from Stihl. Was a toss up between that and the Husky equivalent but the Stihl was in stock. Has been great so far, though think the option of a bigger collecting bag from Stihl would be a good one.. No complaints from me and can thoroughly recommend Stihl and especially Radmore & Tucker….
