This premium-quality lawn tractor from Mountfield offers high-spec features throughout and will come into its own on lawns and informal grassed areas of up to 8000m2.
The Mountfield 1740H Lawn Tractor has a STIGA ST550 engine; a 586cc twin-cylinder overhead-valve power-unit, which you’ll find smooth-running, exceptionally reliable and extremely powerful. An electric key starter ensures getting the engine going is a fast, headache-free operation.
Instead of a clunky manual gearbox, the Mountfield 1740H is equipped with a hydrostatic drive. Similar to an automatic transmission on a car, this high-end feature enables you to control the mower’s speed (both forward and reverse) using a foot pedal, maximising manoeuvrability when mowing around and between obstacles, and making it easy to select the most effective pace for different grass conditions. A very tight turning circle of just 160cm further enhances manoeuvrability.
Thanks to its bagging, mulching and rear-discharge capabilities, the Mountfield 1740H Lawn Tractor offers the versatility needed to tackle a wide variety of grass-types. In collection mode, grass clippings are blown at high speed from the 102cm twin-blade cutter-deck into a very large-capacity 260-litre collector that makes it possible to get the job done with fewer stops. The collector can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat; and is fitted with a ‘collector full’ buzzer to let you know when it’s at capacity - this helps to stop the discharge-chute becoming blocked due to overfilling.
Clumped grass-clippings around the blades and underside of the deck can lead to a decline in performance, so Mountfield have equipped the 1740H with a handy deck-wash facility. Simply attach a hose, turn on the water and then spin the blades - the dead grass will then be thoroughly removed. The cutter deck on the 1740H is slightly wider than the width of the wheels, so there’ll be less post-mowing work to do with your strimmer.
The Mountfield 1740H features a seven-stage height-of-cut, adjustable between 25 and 80mm to suit both your preferred finish and the length of the grass you’re working on. Like the grassbag-emptying mechanism, the cutting-height is controlled from the driver’s seat (there’s no need to stop to make adjustments).
Other notable features include electromagnetic blade-engagement, which reduces wear and extends the life of key parts; and powerful twin-headlights that will allow you to finish the job if you started a bit too late in the afternoon.
Please note: rear deflector, mulching-plug, tow-bar and battery charger available separately.
