Environmental petrol can be used, i.e. alkylate
petrol. This type of petrol has a composition that is
less harmful for people and nature.
Petrol is highly inflammable. Always
store fuel in containers that are made
especially for this purpose.
Only fill or top up with petrol outdoors,
and never smoke when filling or topping up. Fill up with fuel before starting
the engine. Never remove the filler cap
or fill with petrol while the engine is
running or still warm.
Never completely fill the petrol tank. Leave an
empty space (= at least the entire filler tube plus 1
- 2 cm at the top of the tank) to allow the petrol to
expand when it warms up without overflowing.
See fig. 13.
13.2Checking the engine oil level
On delivery, the crankcase is filled with SAE 10W30 oil.
Check the oil level every time before using to
ensure it is correct. The machine should be
standing on level ground.
Wipe around the dipstick. Unscrew and
pull it up. Wipe the dipstick.
Push the dipstick down completely without screwing it into place. Pull it up again and read off the oil
level.
Top up with oil to the “FULL” mark if the oil level
is below this mark. See fig. 14.
The oil level must never exceed the “FULL” mark.
This results in the engine overheating. If the oil
level exceeds the “FULL” mark, the oil must be
drained until the correct level is achieved.
28
1. Place the machine on a flat surface.
2. Read off the oil level in the reservoir. See fig.
18. The level should be level with the line.
3. If necessary, top up with more oil.
Check that the results of the safety checks below
are achieved when testing the machine in question.
The safety checks must always be carried out every time before use.
If any of the results below is not
achieved, the machine must not be
used! Take the machine to a service

13.5 Start
1. Open the fuel cock. See 16.
2. Check that the spark plug cable(s) is/are installed on the spark plug(s).
3. Check to make sure that the power take-off is
disengaged.
4. Do not keep your foot on the drive pedal.
5. Put the throttle control at full throttle.
Starting cold engine – pull the choke control out
fully.
Starting warm engine – the choke control
should be pressed in.
6. Depress the clutch-brake pedal fully.
7. Turn the ignition key and start the engine.
8 Once the engine has started, push the choke
control in gradually if it has been used.
9. When starting from cold, do not make the machine work under load immediately, but let the
engine run for a few minutes first. This will allow the oil to warm up.
When the machine is in operation, full throttle
should always be used.
13.6 Operating tips
Always check that there is the correct volume of
oil in the engine. This is particularly important
when operating on slopes. See “13.2”.
Be careful when driving on slopes. No
sudden starting or stopping when driving up or down a slope. Never drive
across a slope. Move from the top down
or from the bottom to the top.
The machine may not be driven on
slopes greater than 10º in any direction.
Reduce the speed on slopes and when
making sharp turns in order to retain
control and reduce the risk of tipping
over.
Do not turn the steering wheel to full
lock when driving in top gear and at full
throttle. The machine can easily topple
over.
Keep hands and fingers well away from
articulated steering joint and seat
bracket. Risk of crushing injuries. Never drive with the engine casing open.
13.7 Stop
Disengage the power take-off. Apply the parking
brake.
Allow the engine to idle 1-2 mins. Stop the engine
by turning off the ignition key.
Shut off the petrol cock. This is particularly important if the machine is to be transported on a trailer
for example.
If the machine is left unattended, remove the spark plug cable(s) and remove the ignition key.
The engine may be very warm immediately after it is shut off. Do not touch the
silencer, cylinder or cooling fins. This
can cause burn injuries.
13.8 Cleaning
To reduce the risk of fire, keep the engine, silencer, battery and fuel tank free
from grass, leaves and oil.
To reduce the risk of fire, regularly
check the machine for oil and/or fuel
leakage.
Clean the machine after each use. The following
instructions apply for cleaning:
• When washing the machine with water under
high pressure, do not point the jet directly at
axle seals, electrical components or hydraulic
valves.
• Do not spray water directly at the engine.
• Clean the engine with a brush and/or compressed air.
• Clean the engine’s cooling air intake (14:W).
14 MAINTENANCE
14.1Service programme
In order to keep the machine in good condition as
regards reliability and operational safety as well as
from an environmental perspective, STIGA’s Service programme should be followed.
The contents of this programme can be found in
the attached service log.
Basic service must always be carried out by an authorised workshop.
First service and intermediate service should be
carried out by an authorised workshop, but can
also be carried out by the user. The content of this
can be found in the service log and the actions are
described under “13.4” as well as below.
Servicing carried out at an authorised workshop
guarantees professional work using genuine spare
parts.
At each basic service and intermediate service carried out at an authorised workshop, the service log
is stamped. A service log presenting these services
is a valuable document that improves the machine’s second-hand value.
14.2 Preparation
All service and all maintenance must be carried out
on a stationary machine with the engine switched
off.
Prevent the machine from rolling by always applying the parking brake.
29
EN
ENGLISH
Stop the engine.
Prevent unintentional starting of the
engine by disconnecting the spark plug
cable(s) from the spark plug(s) and removing the ignition key.
14.3 Tyre pressure

14.7.2Adjustment
Adjust the steering chains if required as follows:
1. Put the machine in the straight-ahead position.
2. Adjust the steering chains with the two nuts, located under the central point. See fig. 20.
3. Adjust both nuts by the same amount until there
is no clearance.
4. Test drive the machine straight forwards and
check that the steering wheel is not off centre.
5. If the steering wheel is off centre, undo one nut
and tighten the other.
Do not over-tighten the steering chains. This will
cause the steering to become heavy and will increase wear on the steering chains.
14.8 Battery
If acid comes into contact with the eyes
or skin, this can cause serious injuries.
If any part of the body has come into
contact with acid, rinse immediately
with copious amounts of water and seek
medical assistance as soon as possible.
The battery is a valve-regulated battery with 12 V
nominal voltage. The battery fluid does not need to
and cannot be checked or topped up. The only
maintenance that is required is charging, for example after extended storage.
ENGLISH
The battery must be fully charged before being used for the first time. The
battery must always be stored fully
charged. If the battery is stored while
discharged, serious damage will occur.
14.8.1 Charging with the engine
