Stiga Tornado 398 - 98cm Cut Side Discharge Garden Tractor


The Stiga Tornado 398 Hydrostatic Drive Lawn Tractor. 

Designed for side discharging the grass clippings or with the optional cover attached  will chop the cuttings into a fine mulch.

The Stiga Tornado 398 Lawn Tractor, combines push-button blade-engagement with an ideally positioned cutting-height selection lever, a raised soft-grip steering-wheel and an adjustable high-back seat.

It’s fitted with a pivoting front axle that ensures a consistent finish on undulating terrain; and it benefits from a manoeuvrability-optimising hydrostatic drive that gives you smooth, ground-speed control with no need to stop and manually shift gear.

Twin anti-scalp gauge-wheels work to stop turf-marking when manoeuvring on inclines; while a hosepipe fixture-point means you’ll have no trouble getting rid of corrosive, performance-inhibiting debris from the underside of the deck.

The substantial wide-profile rear tyres on the Tornado 398 offer the ideal compromise between surface-gentleness and high-grip traction.

Other features include a safety contact-breaker that prevents start-up when the driver’s seat is vacant; a cup-holder for on-hand refreshment; twin headlamps for safe poor-light mowing; and a handy mow-in-reverse function.

Designed for areas up to 8000m2.
