The GTL 48HR 4WD 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 require a larger cutting area. Powered by a Briggs & Stratton Intek 8240 (EFM) 724cc engine and benefiting from a hydrostatic transmission system that gives infinitely variable forward and reverse speeds simply by using a foot pedal. Blades are engaged or disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic blade clutch. Cutting height is adjustable from 25mm to 100mm. 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.
The 4WD transmission powers all 4 wheels at the same time meaning traction is not compromised when on slopes, undulations, long grass or rough terrain. 4WD also gives you extra confidence that the machine can do the job when towing any of our ride on accessories
The heavy duty 121cm teiple bladed side discharge mulching deck comes complete with anti scalp wheels. A stylish front bumper is a standard fitting, with a tow hitch also included; optional accessories include spreaders and trailers.
