The Atco GTL48HR extends Atco’s range of side discharge mulching tractors and is a great option for a larger property where you may have both lawns and paddock / orchard areas to cut. Powered by a Briggs & Stratton Intek 8240 V-Twin 724cc engine and benefiting from a hydrostatic transmission system that gives infinitely variable forward and reverse speeds simply by using a foot pedal. The new 121cm (48″) triple blade cutting deck is the strongest deck ever fitted to an Atco tractor, cutting blades are engaged or disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic blade clutch. Cutting height is adjustable from 30mm to 90mm. A snap on hose connection on the cutter deck facilitates cleaning after use.
Used on a regular basis mulching is a highly efficient 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.
A stylish front bumper is a standard fitting, with a tow hitch also included; optional accessories include spreaders and trailers.
