Minimal effort is required when manoeuring round your lawn as the light steering and tight turning circle enable you to maintain a close cut to your borders, trees and garden furniture. Although the manufacturer's recommend this product up to areas of 5 acres, it will easily cut down your mowing time on lawns of a smaller size. This brings us to the next feature, the mulch plug. Easily fitted through the rear chute, the mulch plug forms the shape of the deck to retain the cuttings to be recycled by the specially designed blades inside the deck, helping to promote a lush, healthy lawn. This will also cut your mowing time by up to 30% as no more trips back and forward to a compost heap required.
The cutter deck is fitted with twin blades which efficiently cuts and produces a huge amount of airflow to aid with the collection directly into the large collector box, which is fitted with an alarm to let you know when it is time to empty the box.
The hydrostatic drive function is similar to an automatic car in the way it works. By pressing the forward pedal firmly, the tractor will move forward and you control how fast or slow you travel. The same applies in reverse which makes for easy manoeuvering.
Height of cut control, couldn't be simpler. A single lever with 7 presets enables you to find the height of cut you want, as low as 30mm. There is a standard hose pipe connector to help keep the cutter deck clean. There is also a tow bar included with this machine which can be used to tow a number of implements to help with the workload of maintaining a beautiful lawn, such as a trailer, spreader or roller for the classic stripe effect.
