The STIHL GHE 355 is tailor-made for regular use and larger quantities of shredding material.
The sandwich-type blade unit shreds both medium-sized branches up to 35 mm in diameter as well as mixed soft shredding material. The BRS reversal mechanism allows you to manually reverse the rotational direction of the shredding blades. This means that a different blade type is used depending on the clippings. The garden shredder has a powerful motor and is easy to move.
The large feed chute facilitates feeding of the STIHL shredder. The soundproofed feed chute reduces working noise when shredding in the garden. The integrated spray protection provides a shield against swirling dirt.
BRS reversal mechanism
The rotation direction of the blades on this STIHL electric shredder can be reversed easily using a rotary switch. The blade rotation reverse system (BRS) activates specific blades. In a clockwise direction, sharp blades shred hard and woody shredding material. In an anti-clockwise direction, blades shred soft plant trimmings into compostable material. The system allows you to shred large volumes of material while helping maintain the sharpness of the special blades for longer.
The electromagnetic safety lock prevents the garden shredder from starting automatically during maintenance operations or when the blade is being changed, for example. The safety switch is integrated in the opening mechanism on the STIHL shredder. As soon as the closure screws on the machine are unscrewed, the safety switch is tripped and the current flow is interrupted.
