The GTL 43HR is another great machine in 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 7220 V-Twin 656cc 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 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.
The 108cm/43” twin bladed side discharge mulching deck comes complete with anti scalp wheels.
