A simple-to-operate ride-on mower most suited to orchards and paddocks

The Tornado 398 is a petrol-powered garden tractor with a twin-bladed 98 cm cutter deck, most suited to managing orchards, paddocks, and similar grassy areas up to 5,000 m2 due to its side discharge function. It is part of STIGA's Essential range designed for first-time users or those who want uncomplicated operation.

Side-discharging means no clean-up

Side-discharging means cuttings are ejected to the side of the machine via the side-discharge chute, eliminating the need to clean-up. The tractor is also capable of mulching with the additional purchase of a mulching plug, which means finely shredded cuttings are returned to the surface of the lawn.

Movement is smooth and easy

STIGA's own-brand 432 cc petrol engine fuels the Tornado 398, producing 7.5 kW of power. Pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission means you don't have to change gear, and ensures smooth manoeuvrability along with the pivoting front axle which keeps the deck flush against the surface of the lawn. 2 anti-scalp wheels prevent damage to the turf for a better quality finish. 

Fitted with some features for comfortable operation

The seat is adjustable to allow for a comfortable operator position. Conventional headlights provide visibility in low-light conditions. Other features include a small storage compartment and a cup holder.

Minimal maintenance is required

The front of the Tornado 398 is protected from accidental damage thanks to the addition of a front bumper. Keeping the underside of the deck clean for continued performance is assisted by the washing link, which allows you to attach a hose pipe for easy cleaning.

A 3 year domestic warranty with STIGA is included, we will register the machine. T&Cs apply.
