The GT43HR extends the Atco range of side discharge mulching tractors and is a great alternative if you don’t want to collect your grass cuttings and have a larger area to cut. Powered by a Briggs and Stratton Series 4165 500cc engine and benefiting from a hydrostatic transmission system that gives infinitely variable forward and reverse speeds simply using a foot pedal. Blades are engaged and disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic blade clutch. Cutting height is adjustable from 25mm to 80mm. A snap on hose connection on the cutter deck facilitates cleaning after use.
Used on a regular basis mulching is a highly effective method of recycling clippings and is increasingly popular as it does away with the need to compost the grass. Mulching leaves a fine finish; the mulched clippings are barely visible as they are blown deep into the turf and return valuable nutrients such as nitrogen back into the soil promoting healthier growth.
Side discharge comes into its own in longer grass conditions. It leaves a uniform finish and will tidy up a lawn which has grown too long for successful mulching.
The 108cm (43″) twin bladed side discharge mulching deck comes complete with anti-scalp wheels and the 65cm turning radius makes this a very manoeuvrable tractor. A stylish front bumper is included, along with a towing hitch; making it ready to use with a trailer or other towed accessory.
