Mountfield lawn tractors are manufactured to the highest standards and benefit from some of the longest and most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
The 2248H is a 122cm working width model with a hydrostatic transmission and powered by a twin cylinder Briggs & Stratton Intek engine. This high specification garden tractor is suitable for lawns up to 5 acres. Light steering and a tight turning circle makes it easy to manoeuvre around trees, borders and garden furniture with the minimum of effort. All Mountfield garden tractors cut wider than the wheel width, which means there is little trimming left to do after the lawns have been mown.
A hydrostatic transmission is similar in many ways to the gearbox on an automatic car, forward and reverse speeds are infinitely variable. To move forward you simply press the front section of the pedal; the more firmly you press the faster you will go. For reverse, press the rear of the pedal. You can change from forward to reverse instantly so manoeuvreability is fantastic.
Grass cuttings are blown from the twin bladed cutter deck cleanly and efficiently into a large capacity rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let the driver know when the collector is full, this is a valuable feature as there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand!
Emptying the collector is done from the driving seat; simply pull the dump lever and the collector opens wide, emptying out the clippings, you don’t even need to get off the sear. Engaging the cutter deck is simple; just pull the control switch out for “On” and push it in for “Off”. Selecting a suitable height of cut is easy too; a lever located conveniently at the driver’s left hand side has seven preset cutting heights ranging from 30mm to 90mm. No tools are necessary and the cutting height can also be adjusted on the move.
A deck wash facility means keeping the deck clean couldn’t be easier. Simply attach a hose to the snap-on connector, turn on the water and engage the blades. Water blasts around beneath the deck washing it clean!
Mountfield lawn tractors are extremely versatile machines, they can collect the grass clippings, or if required rear discharge them. They can also mulch and recycle your grass.
Mulching grass is a great feature as it saves so much time. It can be more than 30% quicker, there is no stopping work to drive to empty clippings, this results in significant fuel savings. Mulching the 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?” 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. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, they then use the mulching facility on all the other areas.
Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute. To switch into mulch mode just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug supplied as standard with the machine into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
A machine of this power can be used for much more than cutting grass. Check out the range of accessories, fit any one onto the tow bar to save time and effort.
