Hints & Tips
We promised you some really exciting products at the start of the year and these two lawn tractors from Mountfield certainly fit the bill.
The Mountfield 1430M Lawn Tractor has an 82 cm width with two cutting blades to give a smoother cut and is designed for larger lawns.
Excellently engineered with clean lines it has seven cutting heights from 25 to 80 mm making it suitable for neat lawns and rougher areas and the airflow from the two blades means it can collect clippings in either wet or dry conditions, a feature unique for a machine at this price.
Another great feature is the loud beep which sounds when the 240 litre grass box is full; this can be emptied from the driving seat using a telescopic handle.
The large 432 cc engine gives the lawn tractor plenty of power and the engine has an oil pump for better lubrication and better efficiency and longer life.
Ten years research went into designing this particular engine.
The lawn tractor has five forward gears and one reverse.
There is a large fuel tank to save time filling up and the whole machine has been designed for maximum comfort.
The seat is fully adjustable and padded to add even more comfort and convenience when driving.
This Mountfield garden tractor costs £1399, £200 off the manufacturer’s recommended price, and is delivered fully assembled and ready to go within three to five working days. It has a two year manufacturer’s guarantee.
You can also buy a deflector kit and mulch plug for even greater flexibility.
A similar machine is the Mountfield 1430H Lawn Tractor which has the same cutting width and many of the same features but the drive is hydrostatic so you have precise speed control without the need to change gear.
This is particularly useful when driving close to border edges and gives very precise control over steering and so makes for a neater job.
This model is priced at £1599, a full £200 off the manufacturer’s recommended price and comes with free delivery within three to five working days and is fully assembled.
The mulch plug and deflector kit are also available on this model.
