Easy-to-use controls

Countax tractors are simple to operate and drive, thanks to a number of easy-to-use controls. All Countax tractors have been designed to be easy to use. Controls and switches are positioned within easy reach of the operator and levers are engineered to be lightweight.

  • Lightweight deck lift

    Precisely control the height of cut with the lightweight deck lift.

    The deck height selector provides lightweight deck height adjustment through nine incremental settings to provide a cutting height of 12mm to 101mm (dependent on type of deck).

    The lever for the manual lift features a ‘trigger’ style locking system.

  • Hydrostatic transmission

    The hydrostatic, foot-controlled transmission found on all Countax tractors is smooth and responsive. It is as easy to operate as the controls on an automatic car.

    One pedal controls forward speed. Press it further and your speed increases. Release it and you slow down. Take your foot off the pedal and the tractor comes to a complete stop. There is a separate reverse pedal which works in the same way.

    On a Countax, there are no gears or clutch pedals to worry about. The hydrostatic, foot-controlled transmission is infinitely variable. This means that you have full control over the speed of the tractor at all times.

  • Park brake

    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.

  • Adjustable seat

    All Countax models feature an adjustable seat. It is an ergonomically designed, automotive style sliding seat for greater operator comfort and safety.

    The seat can easily be adjusted using the fingertip control lever. An angled adjuster plate moves the operator down and closer to the pedals or up and further away.

    The adjustable seat fitted to four-wheel drive models and the larger A Series tractors has armrests for additional comfort and support. The armrests fold to make getting on and off the tractor easy.

  • Electric lift and emptying of the PGC

    The electric lift and emptying of the PGC (Powered Grass Collector) minimises time and effort. It’s available as a standard fitting on the larger A25-50HE.

    The lift and emptying mechanism is powered by an actuator. At a push of a button, the lift arms on the back of the tractor raise or lower the grass collector to the desired position. The system is more than capable of lifting the full capacity of 390 litres of wet grass.

    A separate switch controls the emptying of the collector. Once activated, the bottom pan of the collector extends out as the PGC net rotates.

  • Differential lock

    Control in even the trickiest conditions.

    Differential lock (diff lock) is a standard feature of the A25-50HE garden tractor. Diff lock is engaged by way of a foot pedal located at the back of the tractor near the seat. Once applied, the rear differential is locked, preventing wheel spin and forcing the two driving wheels to turn at the same speed.

    Briefly locking the differential will help you gain traction when the tractor is in mud or travelling in difficult conditions.
