The Mountfield 3-in-1 Combi System gives you the choice of grass collection, rear discharge or an excellent recycled (mulched) finish. The mulching plug is supplied as standard and simply clips onto the back of the mower to produce an unbelievable finish without collecting the cuttings.
Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time and can make mowing the lawn more than 30% quicker, as there is no need to keep going to the tip to empty clippings. 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 and then use the mulching facility on all the other areas. To mulch just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
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.
The cutting width is a generous 53cm/21in with 9 pre-set height of cut positions between 30mm and 80mm selected by using a single lever. Other features include a large 70 litre grass collecting bag and a 1.1 litre fuel tank.
