Rather than the usual mid-mounted deck, the STIGA Park Pro 540 IX features a front-mounted deck that not only provides the driver with a clear, unrestricted view of the intended cutting-path, but also makes it possible to mow areas that would be difficult to access with a conventionally configured ride-on or lawn tractor.
Thanks to its 50:50 articulated steering system, whereby the rear of the machine precisely follows the front, the Park Pro 540 IX is superbly manoeuvrable and can be driven without the operator having to worry about the engine section encountering accidental impact.
A foot-pedal hydrostatic transmission further enhances manoeuvrability by providing smooth, infinitely variable ground-speed control; while electric cutting-height adjustment – ranging from 25 to 90 mm – makes it quick and easy to select the most effective blade setting.
The Park Pro 540 IX has been equipped with a 688 cc Honda GXV 630 two-cylinder engine that develops a huge 14.3 kW (@ 3200rpm); and which blends forced lubrication with a dual element air-filter to confer superior long-term reliability. A V-Twin arrangement works to minimize vibration and maximize torque; while OHV technology leads to a cut in both fuel consumption and noise.
This commercial grade machine benefits from electromagnetic PTO engagement; a desirable feature that makes controlling the blades or attachment completely effortless.
It’s fitted with an adjustable high-back seat (with armrests) that works with servo-assisted steering to make it a delight to drive; and it benefits from a user-friendly side control-panel that places all the main controls directly to hand.
Other important features include two-in-one mowing (mulching; side-discharge) for great versatility; and 4WD for high-grip traction, even on difficult terrain.
A choice of Quickflip decks is offered, all of which can be quickly raised for cleaning; and quickly removed for attachment fitting. Deck-widths range from 110 to 125cm – choose the one that best suits the dimensions and layout of your garden. Tow-hitch supplied as standard.
