The Mountfield 1538M-SD offers the perfect solution for those who do not wish to collect grass clippings.
Mulching grass is a great feature as it saves so much time and can be more than 30% quicker than conventional methods as there is no stopping work to drive to the tip to empty the collector; this also results in a significant fuel saving. Mulching grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting.
Powered by a single cylinder 452cc Mountfield Series 7750 OHV engine, the 1538M-SD has a manual transmission with 5 forward gears plus reverse. It is fitted with a 98cm/38″ working width cutter deck with side discharge or mulch options and height of cut is easy to adjust with 7 settings from 25mm to 80mm.
Other quality features include electromagnetic blade engagement, option for a tow bar, head lights and a wash facility on the deck. This great little tractor is suitable for gardens of up to 2.5 acres.
