"I have been using Stiga mulching mowers for over eleven years now [12 seasons]. They are very good. There is one caveat. On the smaller domestic lawns where there needs to be no sign of any clippings it is sometimes necessary in high growth periods…"

"I have a Euro V engine so first generation of DPF. It's fine no issues. When it regens it blows smoke out a lot cleaning itself out (only happens when the exhaust gets hot enough and needs to be cleaned) So the occasional long drive will be fine.
