Atco GT36M Garden Tractor

  • Product Details

    Atco’s long established reputation for creating high quality mowers is not limited to the cylinder mowers for which they are perhaps best known; over more than ninety years of business, Atco have developed an impressive range of garden machinery, including a number of outstanding ride-on lawnmowers. Amongst these, the GT 36M lawn tractor stands out for its ability to offer a striking balance between power, control, comfort and performance.

    Built with a 92cm cutting width to make light work of lawns between one and two acres in size, the GT 36M is powered by a reliable 344cc Briggs & Stratton Powerbuilt 3130 AVS petrol engine. Smooth running and durable, this engine is built with Briggs & Stratton’s unique anti-vibration system, overhead valve technology and a cast iron sleeve to ensure optimal performance. Five-speed manual transmission, adjusted via an easy to operate lever system, offers five forward gears and a reverse gear and allows you to simply set the desired mowing speed and go, while electric starting makes getting your mower up and running as simple as turning a key.

    For added convenience, the GT 36M’s twin rotary cutting blades are engaged and disengaged electronically via a single switch and the mower also features variable cutting height adjustment (25mm-80mm) to allow you to instantly adapt the mower to the conditions of your lawn. Moreover, a generously proportioned 260 litre grass collector increases mowing time between emptying and the mower is so designed as to make it easy to dispose of clippings without leaving the driving seat, while the inclusion of a buzzer which sounds when the collector reaches capacity makes clipping disposal particularly efficient.

    With a durable chassis, a cutting deck which extends beyond the wheelbase for easy mowing of borders and a front bumper included as standard, the Atco GT 36M is a ride-on mower which you can trust to consistently produce great results on larger lawns.

    About Atco

    In 1921 the first 900 petrol-powered Atco lawnmowers rolled off the production line at the Atco mowers factory in Birmingham and were delivered, believe it or not, by a man on a motorcycle with a specially developed side-car for transportation of these heavy machines. Things have moved on a little since then for Atco mowers, but one thing remains the same — the quality of the Atco mowers and products is as good as it ever was, and even though they expanded into different areas of the garden machinery market, it is their cylinder mowers that they are best know for. The Atco name is synonymous with the British gardening scene and the company has been awarded two Royal Warrants, the first in 1955 from Queen Elizabeth II and again in 1986, this time from HRH The Prince Of Wales.

    Robert Bosch GmbH acquired Atco-Qualcast Ltd in 1995 and this brought a modern approach to the manufacturing process with the cylinder mowers that the company is famous for changing tremendously, becoming more light-weight with a marked increase in usability and performance; the introduction of the now famous QX Quick Exchange Cassette System, for instance, allows gardeners to change their lawn application needs without changing machine. Not happy with manufacturing the highest quality products, Atco leads the way in environmental compliance, being the first garden machinery manufacturer to be awarded the environmental management standard BS EN ISO 14001.
