Combining Swedish brand Stiga’s famed build-quality with a raft of high-specification features, this high-end garden-tractor will make the task of large-scale lawn-care a whole lot less demanding.
Key to its impressive mowing- and towing-performance is its Stiga ST550 engine; a powerful 586cc four-stroke unit with a full anti-vibration system that works to lessen noise, while reducing wear on crucial parts.
An overhead-valve-type layout means unfailing reliability and low levels of fuel-consumption; while an electric key ignition allows for fast, stress-free starts, with no need to repeatedly pull on a starter-rope.
The Stiga Estate 2398 HW Lawn Tractor is a delight to operate, with its tight 140cm turning-circle and light-touch steering enabling the effortless negotiation of borders and awkwardly positioned obstacles.
Its hydrostatic transmission provides infinite increment ground-speed control, which in turn optimises manoeuvrability and enhances driving-pleasure; while its wide-ranging seven-step height-of-cut (25-80mm) makes it possible to achieve a precision finish.
Capable of either mulching clippings, or collecting them in its cavernous 240-litre grassbag, the Stiga Estate 2398HW is at home on a variety of grass-types.
Powerful twin-headlights ensure you’ll be able to mow on into the dusk if you started a bit late in the day, while its audible ‘collector full’ warning works to prevent overfilling and the inevitable blocking of the discharge-chute that follows.
This model’s large-capacity six-litre fuel-tank and 98cm mower-deck make it a good match for lawns up to 8000m2.
