The SHE 71 is a low noise, electric vacuum shredder, allowing you the versatility of blowing, collecting and shredding garden material in one machine. 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 simple, and is done using the bottom zip.
