Should the grass cutter be protected from rain?
All STIGA grass cutters are IPX4 certified, meaning that they are not damaged by rain. However, it is recommended to keep the grass cutter 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 grass cutter is assembled correctly.
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 "Support" section of the product page.
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, the height of the chassis must be set 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.
