Of cutting-edge design, the high-specification STIGA Tornado 598 offers a multitude of features that will make the life of anyone maintaining a substantial lawn or rough-grass area a whole lot easier!
Primary amongst those features is its ST 500 Powered by STIGA engine; a high-capacity 452cc single-cylinder unit that minimizes component-wear and makes for a less tiring ride.
The Tornado 598 is an adaptable machine, with its two cutting-modes (mulching; side-discharge) and seven-step cutting-height range (25-80mm) combined to facilitate the management of a wide variety of grass conditions.
Its equipped with LED headlights, so you’ll enjoy great forward visibility at all times of day; and it benefits from a hosepipe attachment point that makes cleaning the underneath of the 98cm double-bladed cutter-deck a fast, hassle-free operation.
Thanks to its infinitely adjustable hydrostatic transmission, which is controlled automotive-style using a foot pedal, the Tornado 598 is a delight to drive and will prove a great buy for areas where manoeuvrability is essential.
A robust front-bumper provides solid front-end impact protection; while twin anti-scalp gauge-wheels work to eliminate the turf damage that can occur when turning on rolling ground and inclines.
Comfort features on the Tornado 598 include a cup holder, a STIGA Ergonomic steering wheel and a STIGA Classic adjustable seat. mulching kit, trailer hitch and battery charger sold separately
