The Stiga Park 345 PWX ride on lawnmower, launched for 2020 is fitted with the incredible twin cylinder Honda GCV 530 11kw engine. It also features the unique articulated steering system that Stiga introduced in 1974 and has remained virtually unchanged since. The beauty of the system is that the rear wheels track exactly on the path of the front wheels, so that whichever way you turn the rear will never swing wide and hit obstacles or drop off the edge of the lawn.
The operator has total vision of the deck and this feature used in conjunction with the articulated steering enable the operator to place the deck wherever he wants it with complete accuracy. Cutting right into corners and even under overhanging shrubs is easily achieved, and the edge of the lawn can be followed with total accuracy. The Stiga Park 345PWX has a full hydraulic servo steering system which even slightly built operators may find very eay to steer, even in confined areas with lots of slow turning.
The Stiga Parks all feature electrical height of cut adjustment which can be carried out via a switch on the console.
The 95cm and 105cm 2 bladed Combi decks, as well as the three bladed 100 Combi3 EL deck are suited to this mower, and with either of these decks the 345 PWX is suited to areas up to 2.0acres.
Its all very well having this degree of steering accuracy and deck vision, but it would still be possible to bump into things in front and behind if the operator has insufficient control over his forward and reverse speed and stopping ability. So the Stiga Park 345 PWX lawn tractor features a hydrostatic transmission controlled by an ergonomically designed rocking foot pedal. Simple push the balanced pedal forwards to move forward, the further you push it the faster the machine goes, right up to its maximum forward speed of 10km/hr.
Then, simply easing the foot pressure slows the machine down, and removing your foot altogether will bring you gently to a standstill. Shifting your foot pressure to the rear of the pedal will enable you to reverse. There is absolutely no need to use the clutch and brake pedal whilst driving your Stiga Park. The 345 PWX has 4WD for superb traction
Of course, every ride on mower needs an engine, and Stiga have not stinted there either, fitting the Park 345 PWX with a twin cylinder Honda GCV530 engine developing 10.9kW, or what we would one time have called a 18hp engine. This engine has more than adequate power for any conditions and provide smooth torque with quiet running.
This example is priced with a 100 Combi EL deck, but it is also available with the 105 Combi EL deck or 95 Combi EL deck.
