Supplied with a 98cm side-discharge cutter-deck, the Alpina AT3 98 HA is a fast and efficient performer over large areas and will take the sort of overgrown grass found in meadows and outlying informal stretches in its stride! Under the new, design-optimized bonnet is an Alpina ST450 engine; a 432cc air-cooled four-stroke motor that produces an impressive 7.5kW of clean, low-emission power; and which will prove economical and quiet-running thanks to Alpina’s overhead-valve (OHV) technology. The foot-pedal operated hydrostatic transmission on the AT3 98 HA confers fantastic maneuverability - you’ll be able to adjust the ground-speed in infinite increments, smoothly slowing down when approaching obstacles, and then accelerating intuitively into long, unbroken passes. A robust bumper provides reassurance when it comes to front-end impact protection; while a convenient electromagnetic PTO clutch means the blades are activated by simply pushing a button. The AT3 98 HA benefits from substantial 457mm drive-wheels that ensure non-slip traction on sloping ground and in damp, muddy conditions. It’s fitted with twin-headlights for safe low-light mowing; and it offers seven preset cutting-heights that will help you to create the sort of finish you prefer. Thanks to its optional mulching capability, the AT3 98 HA is also suitable for use on frequently-mown formal lawns.
