Kitchen-gardeners and allotment-holders looking to take the backache out of aerating, weeding and bed-preparation jobs should check-out the hard-working Stiga SRC550RB Petrol Cultivator!
Supplying a hefty 2.2hp is a Briggs & Stratton 450E-Series engine with the US engineering giant’s fuel-saving and emission-cutting OHV technology; and their noise- and stress-reducing Lo-Tone muffler.
An aluminium cylinder works with a premium oiled-foam air-filter to deliver superior long-term reliability; while a mechanical governor controls engine-speed so as to provide more useable power when the load increases.
The Stiga SRC550RB has a series of four rotors that give a substantial 50cm tilling-width - you’ll be able to get around a large plot in quick-time.
It’s equipped with a two-speed transmission, with the reverse-gear making it simple to back out of awkward corners; and it’s fitted with side-mounted plant-protectors that mean inter-row applications can be undertaken without fear of damaging existing crops.
Thanks to its rear transport-wheel, the SRC550RB can be easily manoeuvred to and from the work site.
Also featured is a comfortable height-adjustable handlebar, which can also be laterally adjusted should it be important you don’t tread on previously cultivated ground.
