Countax C40


First and foremost a Countax garden tractor is an outstanding lawnmower, its unique cut and collection system, developed specifically for the British garden, sets it apart from any other machine on the market. A Countax allows you to cut shorter, collect fully and stripe a lawn even whwn the grass is wet.

Parked side by side with a competitor machine, it's clear that a Countax is in a class of its own, it's built to professional standards. A heavy duty steel body, cast front axle ( C series only) and double skinned bonnet ensure reliable performance over a very long working life.

The British weather is notoriously unpredictable, make a plan to mow your lawn and it seems inevitable that it will start to rain. A Countax is the only machine that ' cuts in the wet'. Most ride on mowers rely on the air flow caused by the cutting blades to throw lawn clippings into the grass catcher. This system can be noisy and inefficient. Damp grass will often get clogged in the deck discharge chute, requiring regular unblocking and an unacceptable finish on your lawn.

The Countax cut and collect system works in a better way. The three hardened steel blades are contra-rotating and throw the clippings to the rear of the deck. The ejected grass is swept up by the rotating brushes of the Powered Grass Collector.

The Countax system means that even wet grass can be cut and collected fully, with little risk of clogging. Leaves and other garden debris can be quickly cleared from the lawn.

Park brake

The park brake fitted to Countax garden tractors is an important safety feature

The Countax park brake system is a cleverly designed safety feature. It prevents the tractor from starting unless the brake is engaged. This important safety device is fitted as standard on all Countax models.


Electric Power Take-Off

C and B Series tractors feature a push-button controlled power take-off. Operators can choose from three PTO modes:

•           Position 1 engages the cutter deck only – perfect for rough-cutting without collection.

•           Position 2 switches on both the tractor and the PTO to drive the Powered Grass Collector – there is no separate lever or control required.

•           Position 3 will operate the PTO only – ideal for driving powered accessories such as the broadcast spreader or scarifier.


Powered Grass Collector

Countax Powered Grass Collector uses brushes to sweep grass clippings from the lawn

The world’s most effective collection system

The optional Countax Powered Grass Collector has been specifically designed for the British garden. Connected to the tractor’s power take-off, a spindle of brushes sweep the grass cuttings from your lawn and into the hopper, even when the grass is wet.

  • 300 Litre capacity for C Series models
  • Brushes rotate at over 2,000 strokes per minute to sweep cut grass and garden debris into the bag.
  • A heavy roller, mounted to the rear of the collector, produces the classic stripe effect on a formal lawn.
  • The collector articulates independently to the tractor ensuring constant contact with the ground.
  • The brushes’ height can be adjusted for the best possible collection.
  • Empty the grass collector by lifting and pulling the empty handle. The gaping action of the collector ensures all material is ejected from the hopper quickly and efficiently.
  • Use in the autumn to mow, mulch and collect fallen leaves in a fraction of the time taken with a lawn rake.
  • Scarifier Cassette available
