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 is the cutting height set to?
The cutting height can be adjusted according to desired grass length. If the grass is very long, we recommend first mowing the lawn with the cutting deck in a higher position. Then, mow the lawn a second time with the cutting height set to the desired grass length. For information on cutting height positions, refer to the "Technical specs" section. Read the instruction manual carefully.
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.
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.
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.
