Powered by a twin cylinder Stiga 586 cc twin engine (10.04kW @2600 rpm) with hydrostatic transmission, this garden tractor is a real pleasure to use with forward and reverse speed controlled simply through the use of a foot pedal.
The 1638H Twin features a 98cm twin blade cutter deck with anti-scalp wheels that provide an excellent finish. Light steering and a tight turning circle make it 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 clippings are blown into the large 240 litre rear mounted collector and a buzzer sounds to notify the driver when it is full and needs emptying – and that is easy to do without leaving the driver’s seat. Or, you can choose to mulch using the mulching plug that is included; mulching grass is a great feature and not only saves you time but provides a natural fertiliser to your lawn. Blades are engaged and disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic clutch
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!
A stylish front bumper and mulching plug are included as standard; a tow hitch and a range of additional accessories are available as optional extras, making this tractor extremely versatile.

Lawn Tractors – Best Practice
1. Always use a fuel additive
Fuel properties, which make up what we know as petrol, can begin to deteriorate in as little as 30 days after the refining process. The use of a fuel stabiliser is imperative to a fuel system that does not get used on a daily basis. Issues that are presented because of fuel degradation, are issue that are not covered under the warranty guidelines for the engine.
Step 1: Add fuel treatment according to instructions
Step 2: Run engine for 2 minutes to circulate stabiliser through the fuel system
Step 3: Store lawn mower or equipment in clean, dry place for up to 24 months
2. The battery must be trickle charged for 48 – 72 hours at the start of EVERY season and ideally every 3 months. A battery has a 12 month warranty.
3. When you feel that your lawnmower has performed for a minimum of fifty hours it is a good idea to drain and replace the engine oil. Always remember to check your manual and refer to the specific oil recommendations.
