Power and performance are standard on this top of the range Estate 7122 HWS Lawn Tractor. With its high output 122cm/48″ contraflow cutting system. large areas of grass really are cut down to size. A powerful Briggs & Stratton Intek 7220 V Twin Cylinder 656cc engine gives infinitely variable hydrostatic transmission, which delivers a smooth and controllable drive.
An LED display on the dashboard provides the operator with key information on the status of the tractor including rpm, battery condition, fuel level and service requirements. Equipped with a large 320 litre grass collector or, when conditions are suitable a mulching kit can be fitted which cuts and recuts the clippings.
Mulching is a great feature. It saves so much time and cutting the lawn can be more than 30% quicker as there is no need to stop to empty clippings which results in a significant fuel saving. 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, and then they use the mulching facility on all the other areas.
Switching between collection or mulch modes is extremely simple and takes less than a minute. To mulch just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure. Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose by forming a natural fertiliser high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass as this natural fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season.
