Stiga Tornado 398 Side-Discharge Lawn Tractor

With this powerful and well-appointed lawn tractor from famous Swedish brand Stiga, you’ll get excellent versatility, premium driver-comfort and rugged build-quality, all at a price that won’t break the bank!

Producing a substantial 11.3hp is a Stiga ST 450 engine; a high-performance 432cc four-stroke air-cooled motor with a six-litre fuel tank for lengthy, interruption-free runs; and an electric key starter for dependable – and effortless – ignition.

The Stiga Tornado 398 is a dual-capability machine able to either mulch or side-discharge.

In mulching mode – which is perfect for regularly mown formal lawns – they’re held under the deck and shredded, before being forced at speed into the turf, providing it with natural organic fertiliser as they quickly rot down*.

In side-discharge mode – which is ideal for overgrown orchard and meadow grass – clippings are laid-out in neat rows to the machine’s right, where they’ll quickly wilt away

Designed with ergonomics to the fore, the Stiga Tornado 398 Lawn Tractor, combines push-button blade engagement with an ideally positioned cutting-height selection lever, a raised soft-grip steering wheel and an adjustable high-back seat.

It’s fitted with a pivoting front axle, which ensures a consistent finish on undulating terrain; and it benefits from a manoeuvrability-optimising hydrostatic drive that gives you smooth, infinite-increment ground-speed control, with no need to stop and manually shift gear.

The substantial wide-profile rear tyres on the Stiga Tornado 398 offer the ideal compromise between surface gentleness and high-grip traction.

Twin anti-scalp gauge wheels work to stop turf marking when manoeuvring on inclines; a hosepipe fixture point means you’ll have no trouble getting rid of corrosive, performance inhibiting debris from the underside of the deck.

Other noteworthy features on the Stiga Tornado 398 include a safety contact breaker, which prevents start-up when the driver’s seat is vacant; a cup holder for on-hand refreshment; twin headlamps for safe poor-light mowing; and a handy mow-in-reverse function.

The 98cm Stiga Tornado 398 will prove a fast and efficient operator over areas up to 8000m2.

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
