This Estate 3098H is a high specification garden tractor is powered by a Briggs & Stratton single Cylinder Powerbuuilt 4165 AVS engine , with a 98cm cutting width, suitable for lawns of up to 2 acres. It is easy to use, with light steering and a tight turning circle, making it agile to manoeuvre around trees, borders and garden furniture, with minimum effort.
All Stiga garden tractors cut wider than the wheel width, which means there is little trimming left to do after the lawns have been mown. Grass cuttings are blown from the twin-bladed cutter deck into a large capacity rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let the driver know when the collector is full, which is a valuable feature; there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand at least you know when the collector is full on a Stiga! Emptying the collector is done from the driving seat; simply pull the tipping lever and the collector opens wide emptying out the clippings, you dont even need to get off the tractor.
The Estate 3098H also features an adjustable seat, for added comfort. Engaging the cutter deck couldnt be easier; you just have to pull the control switch for On and push it for Off. It has seven preset cutting heights, ranging from 25mm to 80mm, selected by using the lever located conveniently at the side of the seat. There are no tools necessary and the cutting height can also be adjusted on the move.
A deck wash facility means keeping the deck clean couldnt be simpler; just attach a hose to the snap-on connector, turn on the water and engage the blades. Water blasts around beneath the deck, washing it clean.
Driving the hydrostatic model is smoother than ever before, the further you press the drive pedal, the faster the machine travels. Stiga lawn tractors are extremely versatile machines; they can collect the grass clippings, or rear discharge them when required. When conditions are suitable, they can also mulch and recycle your grass!
Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time; it can be more than 30% quicker, there is no stopping work to empty clippings. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose, forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. You may well ask Will I see the mulched grass? and the answer is No! Mulched clippings are blown deep down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house to be certain that children or pets dont carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas. Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute; just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection, simply reverse the procedure.
