Not Happy with it as a vacuum, Good as a blower.

published

Has a plastic blade which is nearly disintegrating and is part of the motor. Put it down heavy once and the motor fell out of its location and jammed the blade. Had to disassemble and put the motor back in place.

Purchased in August 2018.

Junk

I've had this leaf blower for only a couple years and it has only been used a few times a year to blow leaves in the garden and driveway. Its stopped working now. I would have expected it to last much longer than it did. Of course its out of warrenty!

Seems to work very well.

I also have a petrol one but this one is easier for the patio if I don't have petrol.

I use this one to blow rather than vacuum. The petrol one is more mobile.

Its ample strong and good quality. Might be too strong for an older person who may like a cheaper lighter machine.

how badly designed

this must be the worst investment I have ever made.
used only twice since new,the fan disintergrated vacuuming up ivy leaves. could not remove the union nut as it was locked on.this had to be split to dismantle the machine to change to the blowing mode. when I started it up in the blowing mode the machine made a hell of a noise due to the damaged and unbalanced fan. As an avid fan of stihl and a long time user I was very disappointed both with the product and after sales service. to replace the damaged fan is very costly almost as much of buying a new machine.as a retired design engineer I think this machine was drawn up by a first year apprentice on the back of a behind packet.

STIHL SHE 81 Electric Vacuum Shredder

published

Very good and powerfull, dragging a cable is annoying but you get used to it, problema is it dies a day after the warranty expires.
Fan collapsed its plastic, needs to be metallic. Not impressed with service people attitude, not encouraging to continue doing business
charged me $55 to tell me new fan was $160 maybe should have encouraged me to get a new machine and waved the $55.

Upgrade: I've only used it 4 times max since it's purchase and that was within the first month. The corded version is too cumbersome to use.
