The 3600SH is a 92cm working width model with a hydrostatic transmission. This high specification garden tractor is suitable for gardens up to 2 acres. Light steering and a tight turning circle makes it easy to manoeuvre around trees, borders and garden furniture with minimal 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.
A hydrostatic transmission is similar in many ways to the gearbox on an automatic car, forward and reverse speeds are infinitely variable. To move forward you simply press the front section of the pedal, the more firmly you press the faster you will go. For reverse, press the rear of the pedal. You can change from forward to reverse instantly, so manoeuvrability is fantastic. It is worth noting that once a customer owns a hydrostatic Mountfield tractor; they don’t want to go back to a manual version.
Grass cuttings are blown from the twin bladed cutter deck cleanly and efficiently into a large capacity rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds to let the driver know when the collector is full; this is a valuable feature as there is nothing worse than overfilling the collector and then having to unblock the discharge chute by hand.
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 even need to get off the tractor. The seat is also adjustable for added comfort and ease of use, while the dash has a 6 LED display panel.
