Say goodbye to collecting the grass and say hello to this ultra-efficient Mountfield MTF 98M-SD mulching lawn tractor. Powerful, versatile and uniquely maneuverable the Mountfield MTF 98M-SD offers excellent value for money and will give you years and years of reliable and efficient mowing.

Mulching your grass is easier than collecting – but did you know the mulched grass is rich in nutrients and provides everything your grass needs to grow green, healthy and lush? Take it from us, you won’t need to buy additional lawn fertilizer which will save you time and money. Not to mention you won’t have the additional job of applying the fertilizer. And not all shop bought fertilizer is safe for pets and children so you have the bonus of using something that is entirely as Mother Nature intended. The environment will thank you and you won’t have to lift a finger!

The highly efficient twin-blade cutting deck ensures a superb precision cut and then blows the grass clippings onto your lawn where you’ll barely notice them! They will wilt quickly and naturally rather than being left to rot on your compost heap. If you have a large amount of land to mow or your grass has grown longer than you thought it would between cuts then it might be quicker to discharge the clippings. Discharging may not be the best option if you have pets or children that might walk the grass clippings into the house – in this case opt for mulching.

The manual transmission offers you five gears in forward and 1 in reverse, and together with its compact design and tight turning circle you should find it easy to maneuver around garden objects and into corners. Seven preset cutting heights that range from 25mm to 80mm together with a maximum speed of 9.7km/h offers you the chance to mow quickly and efficiently, whatever the length of your grass.

Mountfield gives careful consideration to all their components – they seek to design and engineer their machinery to the highest standards. So it was no surprise to us that they used a 352cc Stiga ST 350 OHV petrol engine to power their MTF 98M-SD. Powerful and efficient it gives you plenty of power and is built to be smooth and hard working.

Packed with state of the art features such as an electric key for easy starting and headlights and parking brakes this Mountfield MTF 98M-SD side discharge lawn tractor is ideal in any situation and is built for power, efficiency and longevity. The 98cm cutting width allows you to get up really close to borders and edges and the lawn tractor itself is remarkably compact and easy to maneuver. It takes up less space than a collecting tractor which is great news if space is at a premium or if you have smaller areas to your garden.

The washing link on this Mountfield MTF 98M-SD is very helpful when at the end of the day you need a quick burst of water to free the cutting deck of dirt and loose grass clippings. Simple attach your hose and let the powerful jet of water get to work. Keeping your lawn tractor in a good clean condition will reduce the need for maintenance and ensure it is 100% ready to go for next time.

Suitable for areas of up to 2 acres, this Mountfield MTF 98M-SD side discharge lawn tractor is part of a range that are among the best value tractors on the market and to give you the ultimate peace of mind this model comes with a Mountfield five-year extended warranty. (T&C’s apply).

A tow hitch and mulching kit are available.
