Product information

Description

Another mowing and towing workhorse from Mountfield’s stable of thoroughbreds, the stylish 1538M-SD lawn tractor offers discerning gardeners the famous British brand’s usual combination of powerful performance, superior build-quality and top-end cutting-capability!

The versatile Mountfield 1538M-SD Lawn Tractor is a two-in-one machine that can either side-discharge clippings, which is ideal for long meadow-grass and overgrown outlying areas; or mulch them, which is the preferred approach for frequently mown formal areas where a neater finish is required. Contributing further to flexibility of use is Mountfield’s provision a tow-bar and seven preset cutting-heights (25-80mm).

The 1538M-SD’s superior cutting-capability is thanks to Mountfield’s ContraFlo system, whereby the two contra-rotating blades combine to produce a high-velocity under-deck airflow that optimises results in both mowing-modes.

Thanks to its six-speed manual gearbox (5+1), the Mountfield 1538M-SD Lawn Tractor can be operated at a pace that’s most effective not only for the nature of the terrain you’re working on, but also for the length of grass you’re mowing.

One of the most powerful machines in its class, the Mountfield 1538M-SD Side-Discharge Lawn Tractor comes equipped with a high-capacity, high-output (452cc/11.2hp) Stiga overhead-valve engine that’s characterised by its excellent fuel-efficiency, low-emission performance and reduced noise-levels. Ten years of testing have gone into the design and production of the engine, so you can expect unwavering reliability.

The quality features don’t stop there – you’ll also get powerful twin headlights that provide essential illumination in murky conditions; and sizeable, wide-profile drive-wheel tyres that deliver the traction you’ll need to successfully navigate muddy ground and sharp inclines.

  • Advanced, purpose-built Stiga engine for smooth-running and quiet operation

Very good Lawn tractor. Been using for the last 2 years. promptly delivered fully assembled. No fuss starting the machine.
Easy to operate. Good cutting quality. Reverse cutting is bit fiddly. Have to keep pressing a button whilst reverse cutting. It can interfere with steering. A switchable button would be a better option.
Good maneuverability. Battery needs charging if left for a week. But comes with trickle charger.
Mulching is very useful and good function
It managed a hectare of my grass land all at one go.
I have about 4 acres. But i do in 3 parts as I am bit scared to push it to the limits.
I might need a bigger machine. But am happy to have bought this lovely machine.

Great purchase at a very fair cost Very pleased with my new tractor. Arrived promptly and once unwrapped and fuelled was ready to go. This replaces my previous Mountfield tractor purchased in 2003, and is quicker and easier to utilise. Well worth the price and recommended if you typically have 3 or more acres to maintain.

Good Mower Cuts well and leaves the lawns looking amazing. Not designed to go through the rougher parts of the garden - thorns and nettles - but manages nonetheless with some brambles and higher grass on the lower gears. Really good mower and useful for dragging a trailer around to pick up garden waste. Economical. Easy to drive and manoeuvre for older members of the family, as well as teenage kids (on a low gear).
