Showcasing new-generation lithium-ion battery-technology, this very high-performance cordless hedgetrimmer from acclaimed Swedish brand Stiga will change the mind of even the most ardent devotee of petrol power.
Producing that power is an 80v lithium-ion battery-pack that won’t fade when not in use; and which will prove much longer-lasting than cells utilising inferior lead-acid and ni-cad technologies.
Stiga recommend the 2.5Ah battery, but should you require longer run-times, you can opt for the larger 4Ah or 5Ah units.
The top-quality laser-cut blades on the Stiga SHT80AE 80v Cordless Hedgetrimmer measure a lengthy 66cm and are double-sided; a combination that means you’ll be able to cover a sizeable hedge in quick-time.
An extra-wide 33cm tooth-spacing ensures a quick, clean cut through larger-diameter branches; while tip-protection allows for safe close-quarters trimming alongside hard surfaces.
Hard to match in terms of comfort and ease of use, the Stiga SHT80AE is around half the weight of similarly-rated petrol machines and offers a drastic cut in fatigue-inducing vibration*.
It’s equipped with a Stiga DigiTorque brushless motor that’s characterised by its energy-efficiency and superior longevity; and it boasts a five-step adjustable rear handle that eliminates the need to ever adopt unnatural and therefore unsafe operating-position.
