This Atco GT 30H is an extremely popular lawn tractor which is small enough to go through a 36’’ gate yet large enough to maintain a good sized lawn.
A reliable Briggs & Stratton 344cc engine deliver power to a fully hydrostatic transmission on the GT 30H. Hydrostatic transmissions are clutch-less automatic systems that allow infinitely variable speed adjustment; they shuttle seamlessly from forward to reverse which greatly enhances manoeuvrability.
The cutting deck features twin contra rotating blades for a fine finish plus powerful rear discharge and collection of clippings. Blades are engaged or disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic clutch. Cutting height is adjustable from 25mm to 80mm. A snap on hose connection on the cutter deck facilitates cleaning after use.
Clippings are collected in a rear mounted 240 litre collector which features a buzzer to let the driver know when it needs emptying. Tipping the collector is done from the driver’s seat.
This Atco tractor is a real pleasure to use. To talk about how it handles seems more automotive, however the light steering, seating, ergonomics and ride quality are outstanding.
