Mulching is the future
Mulching lawnmowers recycle grass clippings by finely cutting and re-cutting the grass, hiding cuttings within the standing grass to wilt and decompose thereby feeding the soil.

This is the first tractor in the sub 92cm/36" category to feature a twin bladed cutting system. The blades are contra rotating and direct the grass cuttings through the wide rear discharge chute into the collector. A twin bladed deck gives a better finish than a tractor with a single blade. Collection is cleaner and more powerful due to the direct centre rear discharge, plus the throw and air volume generated by two blades. The cutting result is also visibly improved as a twin bladed deck follows the ground contours more closely and is therefore less likely to scalp the grass. Cutting heights range from 25mm to 80mm with 7 pre-set positions. Grass cuttings are blown into the large 240 litre rear mounted collector. An alarm sounds automatically to alert the operator when the collector is full. You can empty the collector from the drivers seat, simply pull the lever up and tip out the grass.
The 3000SH has a hydrostatic transmission which is a semi-automatic drive. Put simply the more pressure applied to the transmission pedal the quicker the tractor moves. This infinitely variable system allows for seamless forward and reverse speed changes on the move, a real benefit when manoeuvring around obstacles. To engage reverse simply move your foot onto the rear section of the transmission pedal. As a point of interest we now sell more hydrostatic than manual tractors; they are so easy to use.
A comfortable high back seat is adjustable to suit the driver and also features a safety switch which stops the engine if the driver leaves the seat while the blades are rotating.
To engage the cutting blades, simply pull out the switch on the dashboard; an electric clutch does the rest. To turn off the blades simply push the switch in, the clutch then engages a brake which stops the blades within 3 seconds.
The Mountfield 3000SH is powered by a 389cc Honda GXV390 OHV engine which is renown for its reliability and longevity. This superb engine is a favourite of commercial users and specialist garden machinery dealers.
Manoeuvrability is another important factor to consider when choosing a tractor, with very light steering and an incredibly tight turning circle the Mountfield 3000SH is a class leader.
Keeping your tractor in tip-top condition is easy, the cutting deck has a washing port fitted. Simply snap on a hose, turn on the water, run the deck for a minute and the job is done!
Mountfield's 3000SH garden tractor is a versatile machine; not only does it offer fantastic grass collection, by fitting an optional deflector the grass can be rear discharged which is particularly useful when working in longer grass.
Being able to mulch your grass is a great feature and with the addition of an optional mulching plug the 3000SH becomes a great mulching tractor. When the conditions are suitable you can mulch the grass and achieve the same standard of finish as if it had been collected, you really can't tell! An additional benefit is that vital nutrients are returned to your lawn.
The 3000SH can also be fitted with an optional tow bar which allows you to use many labour saving accessories. For more details on these click on the Ride-On Accessories tab.
* A mulching kit and tow bar can be purchased as optional extras.
