Which front cut mower is the best for large lawns?
For large lawns, we would definitely recommend using a wider front deck as this will reduce the mowing time. Depending on your chosen model, decks are available with a cutting width of 85-125 cm, manual or electrical cutting height adjustment, and different cutting systems.
Can the front cut mower be manoeuvred through tight spaces?
STIGA front cut mowers are engineered to move with agility and allow for maximum manoeuvrability, even in tight spaces. The STIGA Park models also feature articulated steering, meaning that the rear wheels follow perfectly in line with those in the front. One of the main advantages of this type of machine is the articulated steering, these models are ideal for mowing around obstacles on a lawn, such as trees, bushes or rocks, giving you total control and maximum manoeuvrability. The front cut mower can pass through very narrow spaces more easily when the width of the cutting deck is reduced
Which other parts and accessories can be used with this machine?
In addition to the cutting decks, the front cut mower can be used for a number of other jobs: the front plate can be removed and replaced with a variety of parts and accessories, such as the front sweeper for cleaning and collection, snow shovel or a snow blower in conjunction with the quick release coupling (RAC). You can also attach a cart, grass collector, fertilizer spreader and many other parts and accessories to these machines. The full list can be found in the parts and accessories section
What type of cutting can you do?
The cutting decks include two different cutting systems: Multiclip Mulching and rear discharge. Whilst the latter is recommended for mowing out of season, the former is specifically designed to meet the needs of those who always want their lawn to be perfect. Thanks to the special deck configuration and blade design, the STIGA mulching system allows you to break down and chop up the grass into fine pieces which are then dropped down onto the ground, thereby acting as natural fertilizer. Finally, the position of the deck itself guarantees a higher quality of cut compared to traditional garden tractors. The deck precedes the front wheels, which prevents the grass from being squashed before it is cut.
How do you clean the front deck after cutting the grass?
This depends on the machines cutting deck. If the chosen cutting deck is equipped with QuickFlip technology, you can just put the deck in the transport position and follow the simple steps as described in the instruction manual. Once raised to a vertical position, we recommend removing any residual cut grass with a low pressure water jet.
