Built around the rugged MP84 chassis used across their hugely popular petrol garden-tractor range, but employing clean, zero-emission lithium battery power, the cutting-edge Estate 384E from famous Swedish brand Stiga represents the future of domestic lawn-maintenance! The premium-quality 48v/30Ah battery supplied with the Stiga Estate 384E Electric Lawn Tractor works with a 1.2kW transaxle motor and twin 3kW blade motors – all brushless – to provide you with the power and performance of internal combustion, but without the stressful noise, tiresome maintenance and inevitable starting-hassle. The run-time of the battery is an impressive 45 minutes; enough to cover an area of around 3000m2! With the Stiga Estate 384E Battery Lawn Tractor, there’s no clunky mechanical transmission to deal with – instead power is sent to the rear wheels via a soft-start electronic drive, which provides ultra-smooth ground-speed control – both forward and reverse – via a foot pedal. The electric drive also eliminates the need for braking; simply release the pedal and the tractor will come to a halt. The Stiga Estate 384E Battery Lawn Tractor offers a host of features designed to make mowing more of a pleasure than a chore, including a digital dashboard displaying information all key parameters; a deck-wash link for straightforward undercarriage cleaning; and bright – but energy-efficient – LED headlamps for safe operation in low-light conditions. As comfortable and easy to drive as it is practical and convenient, the Stiga Estate 384E Battery Lawn Tractor benefits from a Stiga Classic adjustable seat; a Stiga Ergonomic steering-wheel; effortless, low-wear electronic push-button PTO activation; and a handy USB port (there’s also a cup holder and storage compartment). This versatile machine offers seven-stage working-height adjustment and can either collect clippings in a spacious 240-litre catcher, or hold them under the cutter-deck and mulch them. The latter option not only saves time by eliminating clippings-disposal, it also provides the turf with essential nourishment and helps to protect against long periods of dry weather. So as to ensure a comprehensive, no-missed-bits finish with no unsightly gouging, Stiga have equipped the Estate 384E with a pivoting front axle and twin anti-scalp deck wheels.
