Hints & Tips
MowDirect is the country’s leading retailer of lawn and garden and tractors and this model from one of Britain’s favourite brands has been our best seller for the last three years.
The Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor is a tractor which has it all – a great price, a wide enough cut to tackle 5000m2, twin cutting blades and an engine powerful enough to tow all manner of garden machinery.
For when you buy a lawn tractor you are buying a machine which will be useful all the year round, not just when the grass is growing.
The cutting width is 84cm and the twin blades not only leave a great finish but create an airflow under the cutting deck which make it an excellent collector of wet grass.
The cutting heights are from 80mm down to 25mm and it has a grass box which holds 240 litres and bleeps at you when it wants emptying. This has a telescopic handle so you can empty it without leaving the driving seat.
The engine was developed by Mountfield to be both powerful and reliable with a cc of 452 and a five forward and one reverse gears. The fuel tank holds six litres.
It is also a very comfortable tractor to drive with a padded seat mounted on springs and has plenty of grip with deep-tread tyres and large rear wheels for better manoeuvrability.
There is even a pair of headlights, worth having when it gets murky in the evenings..or even the daytime at the moment.
For the longer grass you can buy a deflector kit and if you don’t want to collect the clippings a mulch plug is available.
And there is a tow bar so you can attach a garden trailer for shifting loads of firewood, fertilizer, top soil, anything.
‘The tractor has only been used twice in between the terrible wet weather we have experienced in East Anglia, but with the twin cutters discharging via a large central chute there has been no clogging with wet cuttings. Plenty of power and excellent turning circle.’ is one customer’s opinion. ‘Great. A high performing mower,’ wrote another.
This machine costs £1749, £200 off the recommended price and has a five year warranty. Finance is available see these pages.
