Should the lawn mower be protected from rain?
All STIGA lawn mowers are IPX4 certified, meaning that they are not damaged by rain. However, it is recommended to keep the lawn mower in a garage or store it indoors. Full information can be found in the instruction manual.
Is the product already assembled in the box?
The product is almost fully assembled when you open the box. The main parts have been put together and the remaining elements are easy to assemble. Follow the directions in the instruction manual to ensure the lawn mower is assembled correctly.
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.
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.
