The Mountfield 1538H is a 98cm working width model with a hydrostatic transmission. This high specification garden tractor is suitable for lawns up to 2.5 acres. Light steering and a tight turning circle make it easy to manoeuvre around trees, borders and garden furniture with the minimum of effort.
The hydrostatic transmission is similar in many ways to the gearbox on an automatic car; forward and reverse speeds are infinitely variable. To move forward you simply press the front section of the pedal; the more firmly you press, the faster you will go. For reverse, press the rear section of the pedal. You can change from forward to reverse instantly, so manoeuvrability is fantastic.
Grass cuttings are blown cleanly from the twin bladed cutter deck into a large capacity rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let you know when the collector is full, a valuable feature as there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand – at least you know when the collector is full on a Mountfield!
Emptying the collector is done from the driving seat; simply pull the tipping lever and the collector opens wide emptying out the clippings, you don’t need to get off the tractor at all. The seat is also adjustable for added comfort and ease of use while the dash features an LED display.
Engaging the cutter deck couldn’t be easier; pull out the control switch for “On” and push it in for “Off”. The deck has 7 pre-set cutting heights ranging from 25mm to 80mm selected by using the lever located conveniently beside the seat. No tools are necessary and the cutting height can also be adjusted on the move.
A deck wash facility means keeping the deck clean couldn’t be simpler; just attach a hose to the Snap-on connector, turn on the water and engage the blades. Water blasts around beneath the deck washing it clean – job done!
When conditions are suitable, the Mountfield 1538H can also mulch and recycle your grass. Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time it can be more than 30% quicker, there is no stopping work to drive to the tip to empty clippings, this results in significant fuel savings. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. 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.
Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute; just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
A mulching plug and tow bar are available as optional extras.
