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.
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.
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.
