Lop branches, maintain your hedges and enjoy the manifold benefits of cutting-edge lithium-ion battery-power when you get your hands on the high-quality but affordable Stiga SMT48AE Cordless Multi-Tool System!
Producing an impressive 48v of petrol-matching power is a 2.5Ah or 5Ah battery-pack that offer longer run-times and shorter charge-times compared to lower-specification nickel-cadmium and lead-acid cells; and which are free of the spontaneous-discharge and memory-effect issues that were always the downfall of batteries employing those outdated technologies.
The power-unit is fitted with an ergonomic soft-grip auxiliary handle and uses the battery as a perfect counterbalance for optimum control and manoeuvrability.
The pruner attachment is a compact 20cm chainsaw-head that boasts automatic chain-oiling from a capacious 0.05-litre tank; and which benefits from a ‘kick-back’ limiting sprocket-nose guide-bar.
Chain-tensioning is quick and easy by way of a front-mounted screw.
Consisting of a lengthy 51cm double-sided, laser-cut blade-set, the hedgetrimmer attachment offers speedy bi-directional cutting will cover a sizeable plant fast.
An 18mm tooth-pitch ensures it will cut through small- to medium-diameter growth cleanly with no ‘chewing’; while a 105° eight-step adjustable cutter-head means you can achieve the most comfortable and practical operating-position for the particular hedge you’re working on.
A reach-increasing extension-pole and fatigue-minimising shoulder-harness are both included.
Recommended battery: 2.5Ah.
