Effortless operation and impressive performance in a manoeuvrable ride-on.

The crowning feature of Mountfield's 1538H is the hydrostatic transmission, functioning much like an automatic car. You can control forward and reverse speeds with a simple foot pedal, switching between the two with ease, making mowing larger distances a dream.

Top quality cutting performance

It also includes a 98cm working width and twin blade cutter deck, which enables it to comfortably handle lawns of up to 2 acres. When combined with its neat turning circle and light handling, the end result is a tractor mower that you can really enjoy driving.

Ease of use and simple maintenance

The collector can be emptied from the driver's seat thanks to Mountfield's intelligent design, while an audible alarm will notify you when it's time to do so. It's not only easy to handle, but easy to keep clean too, thanks to a built-in deck wash feature, another simple yet time-saving innovation.

Excellent power makes light work of big jobs

The 1538 tractors are powered by Mountfield's ST 500, which has a 452 cc capacity and a power output of 7.9 kW at 2600 rpm. This performance under the hood is what enables this machine to tackle larger lawns without an issue. 

For superior cutting and collecting performance combined with the ease of a hydrostatic & reverse transmission, choose the Mountfield 1538H.

A 5 year warranty with Mountfield is included, we will register the machine. T&Cs apply.
