The Stiga SMT 500 AE forms part of the Stiga 500 series of next generation 48 volt cordless machines, practical alternatives to petrol and electric machines, economically priced, well built and with long run times.
The Stiga SMT 500 AE is a cordless garden multi tool, which includes a long reach hedge trimmer, pole pruner and a 65cm extension pole. The hedge trimmer can reach 4.3 metres in length with the extension pole, the hedge trimmer attachment has a cutting length of 46cm from the double sided blades. The blades have been laser cut, so they will offer clean and fast cutting of overgrown hedges. The angle of the hedge trimmer blades can be rotated 112 degrees to suit the hedge and desired finish.
The pole pruner has a 10" / 25cm cutting bar, with a high performance chain, which will offer a clean cut and reduce the potential for kickback. A bumper located under the guide bar means the branch can be used as a platform for greater cutting precision. With the extension pole added the pruner will reach up to 4 metres in length.
The Stiga 500 series tools have brushless DigiTorq motors, which are hard wearing, highly efficient and have an aluminium housing for extra resistance.
Other features include a fibre glass shaft, which is robust and light weight, a soft touch rubber grip and harness hook, a telescopic handle and a shoulder harness.
The SMT 500 AE is supplied without a battery and charger. There are a range of batteries available depending on the running time required.
Typical run time from a 2Ah battery is 40 minutes for the hedge trimmer and 15 minutes for the pruner.
