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 instruction manual in the box?
The instruction manual is included in the box. The instruction manual can also be viewed or downloaded from the STIGA website, accessible from the "Manuals" section of the product page.
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.
What happens if there are small objects in the garden?
When the lawn mower is in use, you should look out for any stones, pine cones or other small objects which may be on the lawn. These objects could damage the blade and hit nearby objects or people.
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.
Where can I purchase a new blade?
When purchasing a new blade, we recommend that you contact an authorised STIGA dealer. To find your nearest retailer, go to the "find a distributor" section of the website's main menu.
