A sturdy compact tractor, the Estate 384M is small enough to drive through a standard 36" garden gate yet large enough to maintain a good sized lawn. Fitted with a 352cc STIGA ST350 Series four-stroke engine, the Estate 384M Lawn Tractor may be small but it has power to spare.
The cutting deck features twin contra-rotating blades for a fine finish that direct grass cuttings through the wide rear discharge chute into the collector. A twin-bladed deck gives a better finish than one with a single blade as the collection is cleaner and more powerful due to the direct centre rear discharge, with the throw and air volume generated by two blades. The cutting result is also visibly improved as a twin-bladed deck follows the ground contours better and is therefore less likely to scalp the grass. Cutting heights range from 25mm to 80mm with 7 pre-set positions. Grass cuttings are blown into the large 200 litre rear-mounted collector, which has an alarm to alert the operator when the collector is full. The collector can be emptied from the driver's seat - simply pull the lever up and tip out the grass.
This Tractor has a comfortable high back seat which is adjustable to suit the driver. The seat also features a safety switch which cuts out the engine if the driver gets off the machine when the blades are turning. To engage the cutting blades, simply pull out the switch on the dashboard; the electric clutch does the rest. Turning off the blades is equally easy: simply push in the switch to engage a brake which stops the blades within 3 seconds. A snap-on hose connection on the cutter deck facilitates cleaning after use.
If you don't want to collect to your clippings why not add the optional mulching plug to your purchase. For areas that are being cut on a more regular basis the mulching function cuts and re-cuts the grass into small particles that disappear into the turf, returning valuable nutrients to the soil.
This model is covered by a 3 year Manufacturer's Warranty (Terms & Conditions apply) and is recommended for lawns of up to 1.5 acres.
This model can also be fitted with an optional tow bar which allows the use of many labour saving accessories. A deflector, tow bar, mulch plug & battery can be purchased as optional extras.
Mulching is a great feature. It saves so much time and cutting the lawn can be more than 30% quicker as there is no need to stop to empty clippings, which also results in a significant fuel saving. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting.
