The GT 30H is an extremely popular lawn tractor that is small enough to go through a 36″ gate yet large enough to maintain a good-sized lawn.
A reliable 344cc Briggs & Stratton Power Built 3130 AVS engine delivers power to a fully hydrostatic transmission. 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 a collection of clippings. Blades are engaged or disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic clutch. The cutting height is adjustable through 7 preset adjustments 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 capacity 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.
