An excellent and increasingly popular alternative to a traditional grass collector is mulching, wherein finely cut grass clippings are returned to the soil from whence they came. Atco’s GT 38M, a dedicated mulching lawn tractor designed for use in larger gardens, will not only mulch clippings as you mow, thereby eliminating the need to manually dispose of cut grass, but will also leave your lawn with the high quality finish for which Atco mowers are world renowned.
The benefits of mulching are manifold. As well as removing the necessity of emptying a grass collector and composting clippings, allowing for quicker and more efficient mowing, mulching also helps promote healthy lawn growth; grass clippings are cut and cut again until they are small enough to be blown deep into the soil, returning vital nutrients and moisture to the lawn. This leaves your lawn looking neat and tidy while also ensuring that it grows thick and green in the future. For lawns that are too long for mulching, the GT 38M also features a side discharge mode.
Efficient cutting is ensured thanks to the GT 38M’s generous 98cm cutting width, capable of making light work of lawns between one and two and a half acres in size. The cutting blade system is quick and simple to engage and disengage thanks to electromagnetic engagement, and the cutting height can be adjusted (25mm-80mm) via a centralised lever to provide the best results possible on your lawn. The absence of a bulky grass collector makes the mower more compact and manoeuvrable, while manual transmission with five forward gears and reverse makes it easy to negotiate even the largest lawns. Added convenience is provided by user-friendly electric key starting, which ensures instant power, and power to the GT 38M is provided by a 344cc Briggs & Stratton Powerbuilt 3130 AVS petrol engine built with overhead valve and anti-vibration technology to ensure optimal performance and great longevity.
Atco’s compact but hard working GT 38M lawn tractor is thus the ideal choice for anyone looking for a simple and efficient way of achieving a great looking, healthy lawn in a larger garden.

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.
