The Stiga SAB 500 AE cordless leaf blower is a reliable and efficient tool designed to assist users in maintaining a tidy garden. Powered by a battery, this leaf blower offers a convenient and eco-friendly solution for removing grass cuttings, leaves, or even new snow.

The user-friendly design of the Stiga SAB 500 AE ensures a hassle-free experience. Equipped with a comfortable and ergonomic handle, users can comfortably hold and maneuver the leaf blower without straining their hands or wrists. Additionally, the quick release button allows for easy removal of the blow tube, facilitating convenient storage of the device after use.

With a maximum air speed of 55 m/s, the Stiga SAB 500 AE delivers a powerful airflow to swiftly clear debris from your garden. The intuitive keypad provides easy access to three variable speed levels, catering to different cleaning needs. The low speed setting is ideal for light cutting tasks, while the medium speed setting effectively tackles grass cuttings and leaves on solid surfaces. For more challenging situations, such as fresh snow or wet leaves, the high speed setting provides the necessary force to get the job done efficiently.

For optimal performance, the Stiga SAB 500 AE is recommended to be used with the STIGA ePower E 420 48 V battery (not included unless specified). This battery offers a quiet and wireless operation, allowing users to work without disturbing others. Furthermore, the emission-free and low-vibration working provided by the battery ensures a more environmentally friendly and comfortable experience.

Direct quotes from owners:

The device does its job perfectly.:) We are very satisfied!!


The biggest advantage from my point of view, however, is wireless operation - charge the battery, insert it and off into the garden or on the sidewalk. No more extension cables, no more searching for a free outlet and great performance. Very clear purchase recommendation on my part and very deserved 5 stars!


A practical tool for autumn and winter
