The GT 36HK has a 603cc Kawasaki FS 481 V Twin cylinder engine and fully hydrostatic transmission. The hydrostatic transmission is similar in many ways to the gearbox on an automatic car, forward and reverse speeds are infinitely variable. To move forward you simply press the front section of the pedal; the more firmly you press the faster you will go. For reverse, press the rear section of the pedal. You can change from forward to reverse instantly, so manoeuverability is fantastic. It is worth noting that once a customer owns a hydrostatic Mountfield tractor they don’t want to go back to a manual version.
The GT 36HK has a 92cm 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. If you choose not to collect the grass clippings, you can also mulch and recycle your grass when conditions are right.
Mulching grass is a great feature as it saves so much time: it can be more than 30% quicker as there is no stopping work to drive to the tip to empty clippings so this also results in a significant fuel saving. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!” Mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable provided the grass is cut regularly and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas.
Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute; just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
The stylish front bumper is a standard fitting and a mulching plug and tow bar are included. Optional accessories include a deflector for use in long grass.
