Model 1436M 92cm - Lawn Tractor
1436M 92cm lawn tractor with a Mountfield 432cc OHV engine and 5-speed manual transmission. A 92cm cutter deck provides 7 heights of cut (25-80mm). Features also include an audible collector full alarm and a deck wash facility. Suitable for grounds of 1.5 – 2 acres. Mountfield lawn tractors are manufactured to the highest standards and benefit from some of the longest and most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
This 92cm working width model is available with a manual transmission as a 1436M or with a hydrostatic transmission as a 1436H. These models also have the option of being equipped with either a Mountfield or a Briggs & Stratton engine. Both are high specification garden tractors suitable for lawns of around 1.5 – 2 acres. They are easy to use with light steering and a tight turning circle, which makes them easy to manoeuvre around trees, borders and garden furniture with the minimum of effort. All Mountfield garden tractors cut wider than the wheel width which means there is little trimming left to do after the lawns have been mown.
Grass cuttings are blown from the twin bladed cutter deck into a large capacity rear-mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let the driver know when the collector is full, which is a valuable feature as there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand – at least you know when the collector is full on a Mountfield!
Emptying the collector is done from the driving seat; simply pull the tipping lever and the collector opens wide emptying out the clippings – you don’t need to get off the tractor at all. It also features an adjustable seat for added comfort and ease.
Engaging the cutter deck couldn’t be easier; you just have to pull the control switch for “On” and push it in for “Off”. It has seven preset cutting heights ranging from 25mm to 80mm selected by using the lever located conveniently at the side of the seat. No tools are necessary and the cutting height can also be adjusted on the move.
A deck wash facility means keeping the deck clean couldn’t be simpler; just attach a hose to the snap-on connector, turn on the water and engage the blades. Water blasts around beneath the deck washing it clean – job done!
Gear selection is easy too, just choose whichever gear you want and off you go. There is no changing on the move involved and with 5 gears to choose from, there is one for all conditions. First is a slow gear useful when cutting very long grass or during tight manoeuvres, gears 2, 3 and sometimes 4 are used during normal cutting work, while fifth gear is used when transporting the tractor to and from work areas.
Mountfield lawn tractors are extremely versatile machines; they can collect the grass clippings or if required rear discharge them. When conditions are suitable, they can also mulch and recycle your grass!!
Mulching grass is a great feature; it saves so much time and can be more than 30% quicker as there is no stopping work to drive to the tip to empty clippings which also results in a significant fuel saving. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas.
Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute; just remove the collector, insert the *mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
