The GT 36H has a 500cc Briggs & Stratton Power Built 4185 AVS engine and fully hydrostatic transmission. The hydrostatic system gives infinitely variable forward and reverse speeds using a foot pedal and can shuttle effortlessly between the two.
The GT 36H has a cutting deck with twin contra-rotating blades. This cutting arrangement gives an excellent finish and powerful rear discharge of cut grass into the collector. Blades are engaged and disengaged at the flick of a switch through an electronic clutch which stops the blades within 3 seconds of disengagement. Clippings are blown into a large 290-litre capacity rear mounted collector. A buzzer sounds when the collector is full and it can be emptied without leaving the driving seat.
