The GT 38HR is powered by a 344cc Briggs & Stratton PowerBuilt 3130 AVS engine and provides infinitely variable forward and reverse ground speed control via a foot pedal.
This popular GT 38HR model is a dedicated mulching and side discharge tractor; it does not collect grass clippings.
Used on a regular basis, mulching is a highly efficient method of recycling clippings and is increasingly popular as it does away with the need to compost the grass. Mulching leaves a fine finish; the mulched clippings are barely visible as they are blown deep into the turf and return valuable nutrients such as nitrogen back into the soil, promoting healthier growth.
Side discharge comes into its own in longer grass conditions. It leaves a uniform finish and will tidy up a lawn which has grown too long for successful mulching. Another benefit of the GT 38HR is its maneuverability as the lack of a rear collector results in a more compact overall length.
