The Countax C80 is the largest tractor in Countax’s C Series range. Equipped with a Kawasaki FR541V twin-cylinder engine. This tractor is sold with the 48" XRD Deck.
A larger cutter deck means faster mowing with less passes required to complete the job. The optional 300 litre Powered Grass Collector is large enough to ensure that you can keep mowing without constant stops to empty the clippings.
This model comes with the C Series PGC (Powered Grass Collector) and the 48" XRD Deck included in the price.
Kawasaki FR541V 603cc Engine
With today’s fuel prices, the FR541V provides some respite thanks to its high efficiency combustion enabled by its Overhead V-valves. However, when it comes to power and performance, the big block engine ensures there is no compromise. The comfort level of the operator is enhanced with the lower vibration the 90 degree V-twin configuration engine offers.
Kawasaki is renowned for its reliability and durability helped by the cast iron cylinder liners which are fitted as standard on their 4-stroke engine range.
Maintenance is kept to a minimum, which means your mower will spend less time in the workshop as the high performance lubrication system, rotating grass screen and dual element air filter makes sure the inside of your engine remains at optimum levels, running for longer in-between service sessions.

Deck height selection
Precisely control the height of cut. The lightweight deck height selector can be adjusted through nine incremental settings to provide a cutting height of 12mm to 101mm (dependent on type of deck).
The lever for the manual lift features a ‘trigger’ style locking system. The C Series and B Series tractors display the current height setting on the dashboard display.
Low noise operation through good design, quality and specification. All our products are designed to produce the lowest levels of noise. Not only does this make operating a Countax more comfortable, it also ensures that our products fall within the levels issued by EU noise legislation.
Our tractors feature a double skinned bonnet which helps to reduce engine noise. Our unique cutting and collection system means that air disturbance from the cutting blades is minimised, further reducing unwanted sound.
The Countax park brake system is a cleverly designed safety feature. It prevents the tractor from starting unless the brake is engaged. This important safety device is fitted as standard on all Countax models.
Operating Managment System (OMS) (C Series & B Series).
A simple to use dashboard display. All C and B Series tractors are fitted with OMS, Countax’s unique on-board computer. This system works independently from the main functions of the tractor, monitoring the engine, cutter deck and power take-off.
Most Countax tractors include a digital deck height indicator, low fuel warning and RPM counter. The RPM monitor on the electronic display indicates engine speed. If it falls below the optimum level when cutting dense grass, it is indicated on the dashboard, allowing you to raise the deck or reduce forward speed. This means the best possible cut for the conditions can be achieved.
Cast Front Axle
The heavy duty cast axle adds strength where it’s really needed on the tractor, enabling it to withstand the stresses of uneven terrain.
It’s been designed with commercial-style, tie-down points for safe transportation on a flatbed trailer.
Electric power take-off
C and B Series tractors feature a push-button controlled power take-off. Operators can choose from three PTO modes:
Position 1 engages the cutter deck only – perfect for rough-cutting without collection.
Position 2 switches on both the tractor and the PTO to drive the Powered Grass Collector – there is no separate lever or control required.
Position 3 will operate the PTO only – ideal for driving powered accessories such as the broadcast spreader or scarifier.
Single pressed steel body
Found on C and B Series tractors, the single pressed steel body is a stronger and more durable alternative to a traditional fabricated unit.
It has been specifically designed to reduce water collection points and has been tested to withstand over 500 hours continuous salt spray exposure, thereby helping to eliminate corrosion.
All Countax models feature an ergonomically designed, automotive style sliding seat for greater operator comfort and safety.
The seat can easily be adjusted using the fingertip control lever. An angled adjuster plate moves the operator down and closer to the pedals or up and further away. The seat fitted to four-wheel drive models and the larger A Series tractors has armrests for additional comfort and support. The armrests fold to make getting on and off the tractor easy.
