Forget about collecting grass clippings as this mulching tractor cuts and then blows them down into the lawn surface where they rot down, adding nutrients to the soil and saving you a whole heap of time. The 1538M-SD is powerful, versatile and highly manoeuvrable.
The 1538M-SD is a superb mulching tractor. Adding finely cut clippings to the lawn surface results in higher nutrient levels, better grass growth, saves you cash on lawn fertilisers and saves time emptying cuttings.
This machine is powered by STIGA 452cc ST 500 petrol engine and has five forward and one reverse gear. It is slick, efficient and powerful. The twin-blade cutting deck ensures an excellent precision cut.
If grass growth is fast and mulching isn’t possible, simply discharge the clippings via the side discharge function. Easy!
With a 98cm cutting width, the 1538M-SD is compact and easy to manoeuvre and will take up less space than a collecting tractor. Suitable for areas of up to 2 acres, these machines are among the best value tractors on the market and come with a five-year extended warranty.
