Warranty and After Sales Support
The warranty is not transferable and is not valid on second hand goods.
Warranty covers all parts and labour undertaken on your machine covered by this policy. This is conditional upon the repairs being carried out by an approved Atco service centre.
On walk-behind machines and handheld products, delivery and collection of the machine is the owner’s responsibility and not covered by this policy.
Warranty PeriodsThe warranty period starts from the date of purchase by the consumer. The warranty is not transferrable.
Warranty periods are those effective at the time of purchase and published in Atco literature and on our websites. Warranties are conditional on the product being used domestically and being serviced at the recommended intervals.
For products used commercially (i.e. for hire or by contractors, local councils, caravan sites, water authorities, or any similar use where the machine is employed for financial gain or is instrumental in being employed on properties being used for financial gain) the warranty period will be 90 days.
Batteries and battery chargers on all products carry a 12 months warranty, except for the 24V, 48V and 80V Lithium-Ion products that carry a 2 year warranty.
Should a product be replaced under warranty, the warranty period will remain effective from the original date of purchase.
ExclusionsThe Atco Warranty will NOT cover the following:
- Consumable items, e.g. tyres, belts and blades (unless accompanied by evidence, satisfactory to Stiga Ltd., of mechanical failure).
- Second-hand goods.
- Defects which, in the opinion of Atco, are in any way, or to any extent, attributed to:
- ordinary wear and tear
- misuse / accidental damage
- failure to carry out the handling and operating instructions set out in the Owner’s Instruction Manual
- lack of reasonable care
- the fitting of parts, replacements or extra components which are not supplied or approved by Atco
- contaminated/stale fuel
- Products used / stored outside of the United Kingdom
- Periodic maintenance services instructed by the operators manual, or service parts replacement which would include oil, filters, batteries, brake linings, fabric grassbags, fuses and other service parts unless it can be proven that the item has evidence of faulty manufacture. These items can fail due to normal wear, or through lack of maintenance.
Product RegistrationYour new purchase should be registered with Atco using the warranty card supplied with your machine or by using the product registration section of www.atco.co.uk
To validate your warranty in the event of any repair, the original proof of purchase will need to be shown to the repairing centre. Without original proof of purchase this policy will not apply.
Servicing / Mountfield 3 or 5 Year WarrantyQualifying Atco lawnmowers will carry a 3-year or 5-year conditional warranty from the date of purchase when used domestically. This warranty is not transferrable.
To maintain your warranty your machine must be serviced by a Atco authorised service centre. Your local centre can be found at www.atco.co.uk or www.servicelink.org.uk
To maintain a 3 or 5 year warranty the machine must be serviced before the end of the 2nd year of ownership and annually thereafter. Evidence of servicing will need to be produced when making a claim. Failure to keep the machine serviced at these intervals will result in the warranty reverting to a standard 2 year period.
Please be aware that when using your machine in certain conditions it will require additional servicing or maintenance as recommended in your user manual.
These conditions include, but are not limited to;
- wet weather
- dry and dusty conditions
- high temperatures
- daily use of the machine
Please note that spare part purchases are excluded from this warranty policy.
Stiga Ltd. may use its discretion, in exceptional circumstances to replace a part that is deemed faulty, subsequent to fitting by an authorised service dealer.
