Side discharge and mulching functionality in a high-performance package.

Whether you choose to use the side discharge or mulching (plug sold separately) functionality in this excellent lawn tractor, you will be pleased with the fantastic cut and additional features of the range.

Mulch your grass to save time & effort

Mulching grass can save you up to 30% of the cutting time when not having to stop to empty the collector, while it has a brilliant natural fertilisation capacity due to how it is cut and discharged onto your lawn. Not only that, but you can't notice the cuttings provided the lawn is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting.

Packed with thoughtful features

With electromagnetic blade engagement, head lights and a wash facility (as well as an optional tow bar), the 1538M-SD really is a feature-full ride-on. It has a 98cm / 38 inch working width cutter deck, while the cut height can be adjusted using one of seven settings ranging from 25mm to 80mm, performing fantastically in lawns up to 2.5 acres.

Mountfield power to get the job done

The 1538M-SD comes with a single cylinder 452cc Mountfield ST 500 engine and 5 forward gears plus reverse transmission, ensuring you have the power and control you need to get the job done.
