Description Contact us

The 1538H-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.
The machine is powered by STIGA, 452cc ST500 petrol engine and boasts hydrostatic transmission – akin to an automatic car’s transmission. It is slick, efficient and powerful. The twin-blade cutting deck, with a 98cm cutting width, ensures a superb precision cut.
If grass growth is fast and mulching isn’t possible simply discharge the clippings via the side discharge function. Easy.
