The same superb Mountfield 1538 performance with the convenience of side discharge.

The Mountfield 1538H-SD tractors provide an alternative to collecting after cutting. With a side discharging cutter deck, these lawn tractors neatly cut and spread the grass where it will wilt naturally.

Mulching functionality to save time & effort

For areas that are cut more frequently the Mountfield 1538H-SD tractors also have a mulching function (mulching plug sold separately) to cut and re-cut grass particles so they disappear into the lawn, recycling nutrients back into the soil.

High power with hydrostatic transmission

The machine is also powered by a Mountfield single cylinder engine and fitted with a hydrostatic & reverse transmission, allowing for instantaneous changes between forward and reverse drive. Height of cut can easily be set to one of seven positions between 25 and 80 mm

Top cutting performance & extra features

With a  98cm / 38 inch cutter deck, you are provided with 7 heights of cut from 25mm to 80mm, while it can capably tackle lawns up to 2 acres. Extra functionality comes from the external headlights and the wash facility for the cutting deck.

This machine comes with a 5 year warranty - service dependable.
