PrunerThe pruner attachment consists of a compact 10” chainsaw head with a high-performance chain that delivers a smooth cut and minimizes kick-back tendency. A bumper located under the guide-bar means you can use the branch as a cutting-platform and optimize safety and precision.Hedge trimmerThe hedge trimmer attachment is a flexible tool with a 112° rotating handle that ensures you’ll be able to achieve the most comfortable and ergonomic working-angle for your particular hedge. The fast working 46 cm double-sided bladed has been laser cut for stay-sharp durability and clean, bruise-free results.

A series of green LEDs makes it easy to keep track of the charge-level, so you’ll know whether you can continue working, or need to stop for a top-up. As soon as the pruning or hedge trimmer is finished, you can just plug the battery into your other 500 Series tool and get lawn-mowing or grass-trimming.

FAQ 1 answerTo ensure the machine is functioning correctly and to maximise its lifetime, we recommended that you clean the battery housing and contacts, as well as the space behind the bar cover regularly (depending on the frequency and intensity of use), as dirt and sawdust constantly build up in these areas.
We recommend that you check the chain oil level inside the tank regularly in order to always ensure that the cutting tool is properly oiled. Then make sure that the chain is always running in the track and, if not, thread it yourself or visit an authorised maintenance provider.
It is important to refer to the user and maintenance manual for details of each of these tasks.
FAQ 1 questionWhat type of maintenance should be done on the saw accessory tool?
FAQ 2 questionDo the cutting blades need maintenance or sharpening?
FAQ 2 answerCutting (especially cutting hedges) leads to the accumulation of detritus and dirt between the blades. Without the necessary maintenance, this issue can reduce cutting performance.
The blades should therefore be cleaned and oiled after each period of use. This can be done with a dry cloth, using a brush if needed to remove more stubborn dirt. The blades can be oiled by applying a thin layer of specific oil (Stiga recommends using non-polluting products) along the upper edge of the blade.
Please see the user manual for more information on this point.
FAQ 3 questionThe blades of the hedge cutting accessory seem to be working as if they are not clean or fluid. What might have happened and what should I do?
FAQ 3 answerWhere the blades tend to catch and you notice a reduction of cutting performance, possibly along with more blade noise, you must check the cutting element.
If the problem persists even after cleaning and oiling the blades, the solution is to sharpen them.
For reasons of safety, this is best performed by an authorised Stiga vendor. Once sharpened, the cutting system will return to working precisely and fluidly.
Lastly, please note that an excessively worn or damaged blade must not be sharpened but always replaced. Again in this case, the Stiga vendor network is always available.
FAQ 4 questionWhat should I do when it is not being used?
FAQ 4 answerDuring the times when it is not being used, we recommend you clean the teeth of the cutting element and place the machine in a safe place, ensuring you protect the blade within their storage area.
