The 1538H Lawn Tractor has a 98cm / 38" Cutting Width model with a Hydrostatic Transmission and 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.
It's 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 of the pedal; the harder you press, the faster you will go. For reverse, press the rear of the pedal. You can change from forward to reverse instantly, and vary the speed "as you move" unlike the cheaper manual models.
All Mountfield garden tractors cut wider than the wheel width and the 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 a 6 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 preset 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!
This versatile lawn tractor not only offers fantastic grass collection, but by fitting the optional Grass Deflector your clippings can be discharged straight out the rear of the machine (particularly useful for long grass). Fitting the optional Mulch Plug transforms the machine in a great mulching tractor. When conditions are right (dry rather than wet / damp) you can recycle the grass back on to the lawn and achieve the same finish as if you had collected it, you really can't tell! There is also the benefit of returning vital natural fertiliser to your lawn and not having to dispose of grass clippings.
It can also be fitted with an optional Tow Bar which allows many labour saving tractor accessories to be attached to the rear of the machine.
