Product information

Description

The Mountfield 1538H-SD Lawn Tractor combines a very large 98cm cutting-width with a hugely powerful 452cc Mountfield single-cylinder engine, so it will prove a great choice if you’re looking-after a very large lawn (up to 6000m2).

Its side-discharge function is ideal for areas that are less regularly maintained; while its mulching capability comes into its own on regularly trimmed formal lawns (grass-clippings are finely shredded so they quickly rot and disappear).

Large lawn-tractors can often be difficult to control and manoeuvre. Mountfield have got around this problem by incorporating a variable-speed hydrostatic-drive, which allows you to adjust the ground-speed in infinite increments while on the move. This not only makes it easy to mow around and between garden obstacles, but also enables you to select the most effective ground-speed for the conditions and grass-type you’re working with.

Other high-specification features include Mountfield’s ContraFlo cutting-system, which optimises under-deck air-flow for excellent mulching performance; and a seven-stage height-of-cut (25 – 80mm), so you can set the blade-position to create your desired finish.

A tow-bar is included.

Features

  • Equipped with side-discharge and mulching capabilities
  • 98cm cutting-width – ideal for lawns of up to 8000m2
  • Dependable and very powerful Mountfield engine
  • Variable-speed hydrostatic-drive for superb manoeuvrability
  • Seven-position height-of-cut

Excellent Service let Down By the Courier Very pleased with the mower, much better than my previous elderly 1436M. Excellent service ordered on 27th July and delivered on the 29th pm.
Not impressed with Pallet Way. I knew it was coming on the Wednesday or Thursday. I had no communication from the Pallet Way at all by Wednesday afternoon so went out. It was delivered mid afternoon with no notice. They left it on 2 pallets so impossible to run it off its special pallet as per MowDirect's instructions. Had to get 3 neighbours round to lift it off and then had 2 pallets to dispose of.
Rather soured the whole experience for me.

Excellent value, works well and fun to ride. I have a 2 acre paddock which needs maintaining now the horses which were on it have been moved away. The machine coped with it well. It is simple to use and fun to ride. The blade housing seems a bit less robust than some machines. It does not have a tow bar which initially I thought was included but it was relatively easy to fit.

Cut my long grass no problem I was a bit nervous about ordering a mower online, especially as we are right at the end of the country and deliveries can be a bit hit and miss. But I bit the bullet and ordered this lawn tractor for my lawn. Well I say lawn, it's more like a paddock or a farmer's field as the neighbouring cows often pop in to make the ground even more uneven.

This lawn tractor managed the uneven ground, the long wet grass and the cold Scottish weather without a problem. I'd highly recommend it.

Only issue we had was getting it off the pallet. I have no idea how people who say they just rolled it off after knocking out some wood managed. We had to use some timber we had as ramps and lift the front of the mower to be able to push it backwards off the pallet. And that was after sawing sections of the pallet off. Maybe instructions on how to get it off the pallet would be useful.

Excellent Value for money I have had this machine for about 18 months and have found it easy to use. It has a great turning circle, cuts well and the mulcher saves so much time. You have to cut the grass frequently to get the best use from the mulcher.

I agree with a previous reviewer, the handbrake does not engage easily. I don't use it anymore. The choice of cutting heights is good and the range of gears makes it easy to control the speed.





ED: Thank you for the information re the handbrake. Although we cannot endorse not using it, I am sure this information will be of interest to the manufacturer.

It's My First Ride On Firstly just have to say the ease of ordering and response from MowDirect was superb, ordered one day delivered next. Delivered ready to go, perfect. The delivery driver was very efficient and extremely helpful and explained all the controls in simple terms that I could understand.

i've only used it once, not the right time of year, got round garden in no time. Wish I had investigated a bit further and got one with rollers, maybe I'll invest in add on rollers later, saving up my pennies.. .... .....

Quality Machine But some Negatives Firstly I must mention MowDirect. Efficient. Professional. Ladies in the office were great. Delivery guy was on time and demonstrated the tractor well.

I've had the tractor for just over a month now and it is easy to use although I too don't like having to restart the engine every time I get off it. Not a major point but worth noting. In terms of build it is pretty good but the plastic engine cover is a bit flimsy and doesn't sit square to the rest of the body.

Other than that the tractor cuts well, drives brilliantly, is comfortable, speed is easily managed, turning circle is great. Generally a very good machine but could be improved by Mountfield.

Better than my Expectations The entire process from customer service to receiving mower, I can honestly say, was fantastic. The mower is excellent and handles my 2 acres with ease. It has plenty of power and manoeuvrability.

It's even got a drinks holder for those hot summer days.

Review by Robert Thomson / (Posted on 09/09/2016)
Excellent Workhorse for the Price. My house came with a 1538M-SD (manual gearbox) Tractor, which was quite good but the speeds were difficult to manage i.e. fast on the straight, slow on the bends, resulting in a few bumps.

The 1538H-SD however drives more like a car. Much more intuitive and easier to control. The build quality could be better and the mulching plug is a bit of a bodge (see Dom R review ) but to find better you'd need to dig a lot deeper into your bank account. Overall, a good cost/value balance.

As for MowDirect. I bought from them as they had the quickest delivery time. They are very pleasant to deal with so I'll be back :)

Bankings Made Easy Only a relatively recent purchase, but has been given some serious use in the first few weeks and to date has coped wonderfully with the bankings at our cricket club and the back field.

Cuts well, height adjustment is easy, the tractor is easy to handle and thus far all is good. Long may this continue as it's currently looking like a good investment for the club.

Overall a Nice Machine, Good Features. Could be Better. Pros. It starts and runs well. No issues with engine although, for my purposes, I would buy a more powerful one in future. Cuts the grass well and height adjustment is very easy.

It's easy to clean with the hose pipe attachment points. Mulching is great, saves having to collect grass.

Cons. Mulching cover is not well designed and is only attached in a couple of places. I have had to strap it to the machine and modify it to keep it on. Hand-brake is a joke and has been since new. Rarely engages properly, meaning you have to re-start mower each time you get off as if it has not engaged properly and the engine safety feature cuts engine. This is the worst part of the machine. Mentioned it on first service and was told 'common fault'. Could do with being faster.
