Mountfield are known for their quality mowers

The impressive Mountfield 1740H lawn tractor will take on any grass length producing an excellent cut every time. Powered by the 586cc Mountfield ST 550 Twin cylinder engine which has a net power output of 10.8 kW, the 102cm cutting width ride-on mower is capable of cutting ares of grass up to 2.5 acres in size. A lever reachable from the tractor seat offers a selection of 7 blade heights to choose from between 25mm and 80mm, for the best results.

Easy to use with hydrostatic transmission

Smooth acceleration and quick power and speed adjustment offer superb driving satisfaction, complimented by hydrostatic transmission which gives control of the power and direction of the machine with just the use of one pedal. It's especially great at performing any particularly tight manoeuvres around garden obstacles such as statues and fountains. This model and all other Mountfield tractor models efficiently cut wider than their wheels to leave little-to-no trimming required subsequently. 

Choose to collect or mulch to suit

The large 290 Litre collector on the back of the mower will collect a vast amount of grass cuttings. You shouldn't need to empty it often but when you do, an automatic alarm will sound to prevent the clogging up of the machine, and emptying it can be done effortlessly with just the pull of a lever from your tractor seat. If conditions allow you can easily attach the included mulch plug into the discharge chute, enabling the tractor to finely shred the grass and disperse the cuttings back onto the lawn, to provide moisture and vital nutrients to the soil. 

Additional user-friendly features

The seat is fully adjustable for maximum comfort. A tow bar is also included for use with a trailer, roller, or fertiliser spreader if you like, and headlights enable you to work for longer hours safely. Cleaning the cutter desk is hassle-free with Mountfield's wash facility, whereby you can attach a hose pipe to the special washing link where the water will engage with the blades and clean them. The 1740H makes use of a 5 year warranty, terms and conditions apply.
