A premium machine in both quality and specification, the Rider 28H has the power of a garden tractor but is combined with a more compact, manoeuvrable chassis.  Many owners prefer the rear engine layout of this rider as it offers unrivalled forward visibility giving the driver confidence when working in areas where a tractor would be too big.  But the compact dimensions don't hinder performance; the Rider 28H gives a superb finish on fine lawns and will also tame the more unruly ones.

Powered by a 344cc Briggs & Stratton Power Built 3130 AVS engine, with a history of proven reliability, this Rider 28H has a fully hydrostatic transmission so you can change from forward to reverse without using a clutch.  Use the control lever to regulate your ground speed with infinitely variable precision.

Clippings are blown into a 170 litre capacity rear mounted collector which features an audible alarm to let you know when it is full.  The collector can also be emptied from the driving seat.

Cutting height is adjustable from 30mm to 76mm through 7 positions.  The cutter blade is engaged and disengaged via a safety brake ensuring the blade stops within 3 seconds of disengagement.

An optional mulching plug is available for this machine.

Bad mulcher fitting instructions.
We purchased the above mower a fortnight ago from a reputable local dealer and have been very happy with it. However, we also bought the mulcher accessory and used it twice only, following the poor fitting instructions to the best of our ability. The first time everything went fine,the second time, repeating the fitting as required, on putting the machine into cutting mode, it chopped the plastic mulcher up into three bits. Our dealer has said this has happened to the same model twice before. Rightly or wrongly we have reluctantly ordered another mulcher. Be warned. Great machine for mowing but the mulching side needs to be seriously looked at.
