New Countax C40 Launched: Effortless mowing of large areas of lawn are all in a day’s work for the new Countax C40. Property owners with around an acre of lawn to cut will find this new garden tractor fits the bill perfectly with its full Countax specification. British weather conditions are not the kindest for garden machinery so it’s good to know the C40 is tough and durable. Designed and manufactured in Britain, using the latest technology, you will find there are features on the C40 you would expect only on top of the range ride-on mowers.
Take the 97cm (38”) reinforced cutter deck. It’s the ideal size for those one-acre lawns, and places where there may be access limitations. Fitted with the optional 300 litre Powered Grass Collector you get a superb cut and collection of the grass, even in wet conditions, with the integrated roller leaving behind a neat striped finish. Driving the C40 you’ll appreciate the single cylinder Ariens 546cc engine for its smooth running, high torque, economy and durability. You’ll notice as well the low noise operation, a result of a cleverly designed double skin bonnet and the cut and collect system which minimises air disturbance from the blades, reducing unwanted sound.
List all the features on the C40 and it’s impressive. The garden tractor is ergonomically designed with easy-to-use controls including a geared deck-lift system that lets you change the cutting height with ease. The pedals and levers are all positioned within easy reach and are engineered to be lightweight in use. One pedal controls forward speed, press it further and your speed increases, release it and you slow down. The dashboard display with running hours, cutter deck and Powered Grass Collector status indicators is visible at all times. Don’t try starting the C40 if the hand brake is not engaged because you won’t be going anywhere. This important safety device is fitted as standard. Access on and off the tractor is made easy with a shaped steering wheel and adjustable seat position.
If the going gets rough you can rely on the strength of the heavy duty cast axle to withstand the stresses of uneven terrain, while the strong, durable, single pressed steel body is built for longevity. When it comes to maintenance nothing could be easier with easy access to the engine area and the translucent seven litre fuel tank for checking fuel levels. Above all the C40 is a Countax with a long British heritage, offering premium performance at an entry-point price.
