Maintaining a larger lawn with a walk-behind machine can be time-consuming and tiring, so why not make your gardening-life a whole lot easier with the compact but powerful and highly productive 1328H ride-on mower from venerable British brand Mountfield!
The 72cm Mountfield 1328H Compact Lawn Rider is a versatile two-in-one mower that can either collect cuttings in its roomy 170-litre grassbag ready for disposal at the compost heap; or mulch them and spread the finely chopped particulates across the lawn surface, where they’ll rapidly rot and become a valuable, nutrient-rich fertiliser*.
With its high-capacity 352cc STIGA air-cooled four-stroke engine providing the blade and rear wheels with a substantial 8.4hp, the Mountfield 1328H Compact Lawn Rider offers the sort of power and performance usually reserved for larger, more expensive machines.
An electric key starter makes getting going a fast, effort-free process; while OHV engine technology means you’ll enjoy low-noise operation with reduced emissions and improved fuel economy.
Many ride-ons in this price bracket have manual transmissions that require you to stop to change gear. Not so the Mountfield 1328H, which instead boasts a hydrostatic drive that optimises manoeuvrability and cuts mowing-time by providing the driver with infinitely variable ground-speed control by way of a foot pedal.
Other attractive features include a ‘collector full’ warning buzzer that prevents tiresome spillages and discharge-chute blockages by letting you know when the grassbag has reached capacity; and sizeable, wide-profile tyres designed to provide high-grip traction without damaging delicate lawn surfaces.
