The Estate 7102HWS is a powerful multi purpose lawn tractor with a large 102cm deck; it provides two cutting systems in one – a spacious 320 litre capacity grass collector and Multiclip (mulching plug included). Powered by a smooth and powerful Kawasaki FS 600V engine, with hydrostatic speed control, forward and reverse, multifunctional display which lets you have full control from the driver´s seat. The innovative 6 LED diagnostic display indicates the status of your machine while working. Featuring an electromagnetic PTO engagement that provides instant, safe activation/deactivation of the cutting blades by simply pushing a button, ideal for quick disengaging of blades in order to avoid hitting stones or debris. Driving this hydrostatic model is smoother than ever before, the further you press the drive pedal, the faster the machine travels and the Stiga soft-grip steering wheel and comfortable Stiga seat allow for a comfortable ride.
All Stiga garden tractors cut wider than the wheel width, which means there is little trimming left to do after the lawns have been mown. Grass cuttings are blown from the twin-bladed cutter deck into a large 320 litre capacity rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let the driver know when the collector is full, which is a valuable feature; there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand – at least you know when the collector is full on a Stiga! Emptying the collector is done from the driving seat; simply pull the tipping lever and the collector opens wide emptying out the clippings, you don’t even need to get off the tractor
. Stiga lawn tractors are extremely versatile machines; they can collect the grass clippings, or rear discharge them when required. When conditions are suitable, they can also mulch and recycle your grass!
Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time; it can be more than 30% quicker, there is no stopping work to empty clippings. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose, forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown deep down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas. Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute; just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection, simply reverse the procedure.
