Enjoy intuitive manoeuvrability and an impressively rapid work-rate with this feature-packed lawn-tractor from venerable UK-brand Mountfield! Driving it is a purpose-built Stiga ST 450 engine that has a large 452cc cylinder-displacement producing an impressive 9.7hp (@ 2600rpm); and which features Stiga’s overhead-valve (OHV) technology that works to cut fuel-consumption, noise and polluting exhaust-emissions. A six-litre fuel-tank will see you cover lots of ground between top-up stops; while an electric key starter makes the ignition process super-simple. The Mountfield 1538H Lawn Tractor boasts a hydrostatic transmission, which delivers infinitely variable foot-pedal-controlled ground-speed adjustment, thereby making it easy to negotiate corners and to execute end-of-pass turns (a turning-radius of only 140cm contributes further to manoeuvrability). It features an electromagnetic P.T.O. for smooth, low-wear blade engagement; and it offers single-lever, spring-assisted height-of-cut control, so the pre-mowing set-up process couldn’t quicker or easier. This rear-discharge machine is supplied with a roomy 240-litre grass-catcher that can be emptied from the seat; and which benefits from an audible ‘bag full’ indicator that helps to prevent overfilling and blockages. It’s fitted with a heavy-duty front-bumper that protects the engine in the event of accidental impact; and it benefits a from a deck washout port that makes keeping the undercarriage clean a hassle-free operation. Other stand-out features include an ergonomic high-backed seat, which can be adjusted to suit the driver; and powerful twin-headlights for safe operation in poor visibility. This model can be paired-up with the following optional accessories: mulch plug; rear deflector; tow bar.
