Take an aggressive approach to overgrown paddocks, meadows and verges with this unforgiving scythe mower from long-established German manufacturers Al-Ko.
Powering its specially hardened ESM blades is a Briggs & Stratton 625-Series engine; a 190cc (2.4kW) air-cooled four-stroke unit that has automatic compression-release for low-effort pull-starts; and a dual-element air-filter for a marked extension in engine-life.
B & S’s ReadyStart® system eliminates need to prime the carburettor or apply choke prior to ignition; while their provision of mechanical torque control ensures the engine responds when more power is needed.
The Al-Ko BM5001-R II Scythe Mower boasts a reverse gear in addition the forward one you’d expect, so you’ll have no trouble backing out of tight spots or undertaking what would otherwise be awkward repositioning manoeuvres.
It combines comprehensive vibration-damping with a height-adjustable handlebar to ensure operators of any stature can work in comfort for long hours; and it features a moveable debris-deflector that works to allow you to direct your cut-down vegetation exactly where you want it.
Running on a pair of large-diameter, wide-profile tyres with a high-grip tread, the Al-Ko BM5001-R II is a superb performer on damp ground, inclines and other adverse terrain.
It has a fully enclosed drive-train, so you won’t have to worry about debris-contamination; and the cutter-head is height-adjustable to suit mowing conditions.
This model is compatible with a range of versatility-boosting attachments.
