A high-quality two wheel drive lawn tractor dedicated to mulching and side discharge – turning cut grass into a fine paste that can then be used to fertilise further growth. Mulching is extremely helpful for growing a healthy lawn, and a convenient way to get rid of grass clippings without having to maintain a compost heap. It also means that this tractor is quite maneuverable, and can cover a large cutting area. The hydrostatic transmission allows the engine to put a variable range of power from the Briggs & STratton Intek 8240 V-Twin 724cc engine into both forward and reverse gear, meaning that the tractor can be agile.
Aside from that, this tractor is as reliable and solid as the other vehicles in Atco’s GTL range, coming with standards like headlights, automatic safety cut-off systems and an adjustable cutting deck (30-90mm, with seven settings). It’s been designed using decades of Atco experience, with fine mulched clippings barely visible as they’re blown deep into the turf, leaving a smooth surface that’s also filled with valuable nutrients like nitrogen recovered from the cut grass. It’s able to cut lawns that would normally be considered too long for successful mulching, with a heavy-duty 121cm triple bladed deck that comes with anti-scalp wheels and a solid front bumper. The tractor also has a built-in tow hook, allowing it to tow spreaders or trailers to make it a true garden utility vehicle.
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.
