A mid-sized STIGA Tornado 598 petrol garden tractor with an ST 500 STIGA engine ideal for larger areas

With innovative design, this STIGA Tornado 598 with its ST 500 STIGA engine is built for high performance and is perfect for working on larger and tougher areas of grass or lawn with added comfort and ease for the user.  

Adaptable machine

This STIGA garden tractor comes with two cutting settings to mulch and side-discharge, as well as a seven-step cutting height range to make it even easier for the user to manage different types of grass conditions.  

A delight to drive

The STIGA Tornado 598 is a joy to drive especially with a high capacity 452cc single-cylinder unit as part of the ST 500 Powered by STIGA engine that works to reduce component-wear to make it less tiring for the user to drive in.  In addition, the adjustable hydrostatic transmission that is controlled by a foot pedal, makes it easier for the user to manoeuvre the Tornado around trees and complex landscaping.  

Prevents turf damage

The front-bumper on this STIGA garden tractor provides the user with impact protection and the anti-scalp gauge wheels prevents the turf damage that occurs when turning the mower on inclines, allowing the user to maintain the health of lawn whilst mowing.
