If you’re running a larger walk-behind mower that’s just not covering the ground fast enough, this agile little ride-on from British brand Mountfield is the ideal alternative.
Under the driver’s seat is a Mountfield 7250 engine; a four-stroke unit that has a high-capacity 414cc cylinder-displacement; and which benefits from Mountfield’s noise-, emission- and fuel-cost-reducing overhead-valve technology.
An electric key starter means achieving ignition couldn’t be easier; while a high-volume four-litre fuel-tank will see you complete the jobs without many tiresome, time-consuming interruptions.
Supremely flexible-in-use, the Mountfield 1328H Ride-On Lawnmower offers seven preset heights-of-cut and can either mulch clippings, where they’re returned to the lawn surface to rot down*; or bag them in the extra-roomy 170-litre catcher (a ‘bag full’ buzzer will sound when you’re at capacity, thereby avoiding blockages and mess).
It combines a narrow 72cm cut with an infinite-increment hydrostatic-drive and a turning-circle of only 140cm so as to make obstacle- and gateway-negotiation a breeze; and it’s fitted with wide-profile pneumatic-tyres that provide gentle, scuff-free traction on delicate surfaces.
Unusually for a ride-on mower, this model has been equipped with a headlight for safe low-light mowing.
