The Mountfield 1538M is a 98cm / 38" cutting width Lawn Tractor with a manual 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.
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 Garden Tractor not only offers fantastic grass collection, but when fitted with the optional Grass Deflector your cuttings can be thrown straight out the rear of the machine (particularly useful for long grass). Fitting the optional Mulch Plug transforms it in to a great mulching tractor. When the conditions are right (dry rather than wet / damp) you can mulch the grass and achieve the same finish as if you had collected, 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.
When fitted with the optional Tow Bar it allows this Garden Tractor to pull many labour saving accessories around your property such as Trailers, Broadcast Spreaders or even Rollers to achieve a perfect stripe on your lawn. For more details on these click on the Ride-On Accessories tab.
