With less well-equipped mowers, you have spend time and effort stopping and restarting the engine every time you empty the grassbag, or need to cross hard surfaces or grassed areas that don’t require cutting. So as to get around this problem, Stiga have furnished this high-specification machine with a blade-brake clutch (BBC) that means the blade can be stopped while the engine keeps running!
The Stiga 55 SH BBC has been fitted with a two-edged Twinclip blade that cuts twice, thereby doubling collection-efficiency and ensuring you’ll be left with an attractively smooth and uniform finish the like of which can’t be produced by a standard blade.
It boasts trigger-operated handlebar folding/adjustment, so you’ll find it super-simple to make it comfortable and to prepare it for storage; and it benefits from an effort-saving power-drive that will see you traverse rough terrain and sloping ground with supreme ease.
Based around a hybrid galvanised-steel/aluminium chassis and running on ball-bearing-mounted aluminium wheels, the Stiga Twinclip 55 SH BBC is so robust, the manufacturers are able to back it with an extended five-year warranty.
A hosepipe fixture-point makes it possible to wash-off any under-deck debris accumulation with all four wheels on the ground; while Stiga’s provision of three cutting-options - bag; rear-discharge; mulch - delivers the sort of flexibility that’s vital if you’re going to effectively manage typically variable British conditions.
Driving the blade and rear wheels on the Stiga Twinclip 55 SH BBC Self-Propelled Lawnmower is a Honda GXV160 four-stroke air-cooled motor, which, thanks to its OHV-type layout, is characterised by its excellent fuel-economy, quiet, clean-running performance and low-emission operation.
This fast-working 53cm model has been paired-up with a spacious 70-litre grass-collector and offers hassle-free single-point cutting-height adjustment through the seven positions provided.
