What types of Mountfield Ride On Mowers can I buy?

You’ve probably arrived here because you need to mow a considerably large area of lawn (which we consider to be at least four tennis courts in size (0.5 acres) ). Anything of this size, we certainly recommend buying a Mountfield Ride On Mower to make the job far less time consuming and enjoyable. But which one should you buy?

We can split Mountfield’s vast range of ride-on lawnmowers into a few smaller categories:

  • Compact Riders: These are an efficient step up from the walk-behind mowers, which suit anything over half an acre. They come with two options of cutting width, 66cm or 72cm.
  • Garden Tractors: A better fit for widespread lawns (1 to 5 acres), with the added benefits of a fantastic selection of accessories, including mulching and roller.

What about power type?

Mountfield has two options for powering their ride-on mowers. The

  • Petrol Operated: The conventional method of power is reliable and will give the operator great coverage. Choose a petrol ride on mower if you need to mow for long periods.
  • Battery-Operated: A new technology for Mountfield, offering the same durability and performance as their petrol versions. Choose a cordless ride on mower for a quieter experience.

What is the difference in transmission?

The type of transmission you choose set out how you control the speed of your chosen Mountfield ride on mower.

Mountfield sets apart their manual (m) and hydrostatic (h) transmission ride on mowers by featuring the first letter of each in their code; for example, 827m is manual, 827h is hydrostatic. Both options offer a range of set speeds for you to selects.

A manual transmission works similarly to a manual car, allowing you to shift up and down the gears to various speeds.

A hydrostatic transmission works similarly to an automatic car but uses fluid to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The benefits of this hydro system is a softer ride, more long-lasting and less maintenance.
