The playing fields of Eton may well be where Waterloo was won, but the playing fields of England’s schools, colleges and sports clubs in general would never be as well groomed and usable without the help of Allett lawnmowers. Supplying professional machines to the great green spaces of this country, from Cambridge’s cricket pitches to public parks and gardens is second nature to a company like Allett and now we can all benefit from this great tradition with smart, efficient and British built mowers like this Allett Classic 17L Petrol Cylinder Lawnmower.
Lawn Mowers like the Allett Classic Petrol 17L cut very closely due to the scissor like action of the cylinder, which has five, spiral blades that spin forward, trapping and shearing the blades against a stationary blade below. This makes the action very precise and sharp, and enables the cuts to be very short, in this case as low as 6mm, whilst avoiding the lawn scalping that can happen when rotary mowers cut too low.
In fact, although 6mm is the lowest height of cut on this machine, there are several other options and you can cut at 9, 13, 18, 25 and 32mm, as well as scarify your lawn at 0mm with an easy to fit scarifying cassette (available separately) which slots in, replacing your mowing cylinder whenever you need it. Scarifying has major benefits for your lawn, removing thatch and allowing aeration and nutrition of the soil and roots.
The Allett Classic 17L Petrol Cylinder Lawnmower is powered by a reliable and effective four-stroke petrol engine that offers you enough power to cut lawns of up to 250m2 and with a displacement of 87cc. The engine is a four-stroke and uses unleaded petrol.
Power is distributed to both the cylinder blades and to the rear-roller, propelling the mower forward and transforming the task of mowing and maintenance into a very pleasant stroll across the lawn.
It is the rollers that guarantee that iconic striped finish, so sought after in the British Isles. The Lawnmower is kept level by the combination of a forward and rear roller, ensuring the most even cut possible.
The cutting width is a practical 43cm (17”), ideal for a medium sized garden and the strong but lightweight grassbox has a capacity of 40 litres.
The rear roller is single-section steel, weighted with smoothed edges to give that perfect brisk line and stripe without harming the lawn, and the forward roller is sculpted polyurethane, simple, durable and clean.
The propulsion and cylinder are controlled by an easy to grip and simple to operate bail-bar, with a throttle at your fingertips, and the handlebars adjust to three useful positions so you can work at the optimum height for your needs.
Add to this the retro-classic racing car sophistication and style of the green and gold livery, the manufactured in Britain status and the full one year labour and parts warranty and you can see why Allett name has such a stamp of quality and reassurance.

Great Mower, Great Price

Great Mower, Great PriceReview by Peter Bowyer / (Posted on 13/01/2015)Not really tried in earnest but quality and features look very good. Currently have an old Suffolk Punch which is very simple to use, this one is a bit more complicated but offers better safety.
Only problem was that the e-mail saying that the mower was on its way arrived an hour after the mower itself, unheard of!. Looks like the carrier exceeded their normal delivery scheduling.
Will use MowDirect again.

Great ServiceReview by DAVID MURRAY / (Posted on 09/10/2014)Could not believe that the mower arrived so quickly and there was not a mark on the box. Had one problem and that was finding somewhere to buy the correct oil. Maybe would be better if you included oil in the purchase, but that said I am still very pleased with the service and the price must be the cheapest on the web.
Thanks for everything.

Very HappyReview by Ron Moe / (Posted on 28/09/2014)Cheapest price I could find on the internet. Next day delivery satisfactory, although I tried to change it to the day after but luckily it arrived late in the day so I was there when it was delivered.
Cuts and collects extremely well, as expected with a cylinder mower compared to scattering grass cuttings everywhere with a hover mower.
It should come with a litre of oil though, as it specifies 10W-30 oil which is impossible to find in any shops. Drove many miles trying to find some. Had to use 5W-30 oil instead after extensive oil type research on the internet.
Overall very satisfied and will be buying the scarifier attachment next week from MowDirect
