Combining a hugely capacious 300-litre grassbag with an expansive 122cm working-width, the high-specification Alpina AT8 122 HW is fast and efficient way to cover the very largest lawns and rough-grass areas! Powering the AT8 122 HW is a premium-quality 656cc Briggs & Stratton Intek™ 7220-Series engine that’s rated at an impressive 11.3kW; and which blends OHV technology with a classic V-Twin cylinder arrangement to ensure you’ll enjoy low-vibration operation and high-torque performance. Briggs’ electronic ignition-system means you can be sure of dependable starting; while their provision of full-pressure lubrication works to minimize component-wear and extend engine-life. With the hydrostatically-driven AT8 122 HW, there’s no need for time-consuming manual gear shifts - instead the ground-speed is controlled in infinite increments via a foot-pedal, thereby guaranteeing great control and maneuverability, which in turn makes it easy to follow complex borders, and to work around trees, ornaments and other typical garden-obstacles. Not just a bagger, the AT8 122 HW can, with the purchase of the optional kit, be set-up to mulch grass-clippings - this will provide the turf with a free, growth-promoting fertilizer that’s released as the shredded clippings decompose (an optional tow-hitch is also available). Anti-scalp deck-wheels prevent unsightly turf-marking when turning on rolling ground; while seven-step cutting-height adjustment provides a suitable blade position for pretty much any grass-length. Offering a comfortable drive, the AT8 122 HW benefits from an ergonomic soft-grip steering wheel and has a seat specially designed for essential mid-back support. It’s equipped with an eight-LED dashboard display that provides clear information on all key parameters; and it features LED headlights that facilitate safe mowing and towing in murky conditions. Other key attributes include a newly redesigned bonnet that optimizes engine air-intake for superior performance; a front bumper that provides solid front-end protection; and an electromagnetic PTO clutch for effortless blade engagement.
