How should the lawn mower be cleaned after use?
We recommend cleaning the lawn mower in the normal way after each use. Before washing the lawn mower, we suggest that any residual grass or top soil is removed using the special STIGA scraper, which can be purchased separately.
Next, the inside of the chassis can be washed with water: connect the hose pipe to the washing link and follow the steps described in the user manual.
Which fuel and engine oil are recommended?
You should use petrol as fuel. In terms of engine oil, we recommend using the specific STIGA oil, which can be purchased separately. This will guarantee the best engine performance and optimal lubrication.
What cutting deck height is recommended for the mulching function?
The mulching system allows you to cut the grass into fine pieces, which remain on the lawn, restore nutrients and support growth.
To use this function, turn off the engine, remove the bag, insert the mulching plug provided and set the chassis height so that the grass will be cut to a length that does not exceed a third of the total grass height of the lawn.
How should the oil level be measured?
To correctly measure the oil level, you need to make sure the lawnmower is on a flat surface, unscrew the cap which has a built-in dipstick for measuring, clean off any oil on the dipstick and reinsert it without screwing it in. Take the dipstick back out and check the level, which must lie between the MIN and MAX values. Top up, if required, and screw the cap back on. Full details can be found in the engine manual.
Do I have to remove the bag to use the side discharge function?
To use the side discharge function, you need to remove the bag, attach the mulching plug and join the deflector to the side of the cutting deck. You can re-attach the bag but it is not required for use in side discharge mode.
