The SMT 500 AE multi-tool from Stiga has a 500w brushed motor that can be powered by the 2Ah, 4Ah or 5Ah 500 Series batteries. Ideal for pruning and cutting tall shrubs, hedges and trees, this multi-tool can reach up to 2.95m with the hedge trimmer attachment and up to 2.57m with the pruner attachment. The hedge cutter attachment is equipped with a 44cm double sided blade that can be angled to trim along hedge tops and the pruner attachment has a 25cm (10″) guide bar and chain. Working times of the machine will vary according to which attachment is used and the cutting conditions. When using the 2Ah battery, which is the recommended size for this machine, the battery should deliver approximately 40 minutes of run time when using the hedge trimmer attachment and 90 cuts through 10cm branches with the pruner attachment. The 500 Series tools are all compatible with Stiga’s 500 Series batteries and chargers. These 48v batteries are Stiga’s next gen design and offer zero emissions, low maintenance and high performance cells which deliver longer running rimes.
