The Stiga Tornado 3108H is a sturdy compact tractor with a large 108cm deck, which offers the perfect solution for those who do not wish to collect grass clippings. In tall growth conditions the side discharge mode neatly cuts and spreads the grass so it can be left to wilt naturally. For areas that are being mown on a more regular basis the mulching function cuts and re-cuts the grass into small particles that disappear into the turf, returning valuable nutrients to the soil.
Mulching is a great feature. It saves so much time and cutting the lawn can be more than 30% quicker as there is no need to stop to empty clippings, which also results in a significant fuel saving. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting.
Powered by a powerful single cylinder Briggs & Stratton Intek engine, the Tornado has a hydrostatic transmission. Similar to driving an automatic car, instantaneous changes between forward and reverse drive, make it a highly manoeuvrable machine. It is fitted with a 108cm/42" double bladed cutter deck with electronic blade engagement, easy to operate side discharge or mulch options and a tow bar.
This model is covered by a 5 year manufacturer's warranty and with 7 heights of cut, from 25-80mm, a great finish is assured. Recommended for lawns of up to 2.5 acres.
