This STIHL electric blower is a valuable tool for tidying leaves, grass cuttings and pine needles. Despite its light weight the SHE 71 blower unit operates powerfully but quietly. Attach the Vac-Kit and the integrated turbo wheel shreds dry leaves to 1/12 their original volume, while the catcher bag serves as an effective dust filter. In this mode debris is easily removed from even the smallest cracks. Emptying is performed easily using the bottom zip.
