Forget about climbing ladders and trees. The SMT 500 lightweight cordless multi tool gives you high-reach-battery powered hedge cutting and pruning – free from the noise and fumes of a typical petrol multi tool. Driven by a powerful 48V 2Ah battery, the SMT 500 and its 46cm durable dual-action laser-cut blade and 25cm cutting bar, will slice smoothly through your garden foliage.

To reach those lofty trees and hedges, this garden multi tool comes with a 65cm telescopic extension, giving you a maximum reachable height of 4.30m with the hedge trimmer and 4m with the pruner saw. A high-performance chain on the cutting bar also minimises kickbacks. It's comfortable too, thanks to its six-position 112° rotating cutting head, letting you tackle plants from strain-free angles. And with a soft touch rubber grip handle and shaft, and harness hook, you'll complete your tasks without harming your hands and limbs. For a safe, comfortable and precise cut, the SMT 500 features a bumper under the guide bar, for leaning against branches while you work.

Support

What type of maintenance should be done on the saw accessory tool?
To 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.
Do the cutting blades need maintenance or sharpening?
Cutting (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.
The 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?
Where 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.
What should I do when it is not being used?
During 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.
