Designed in Germany to Al-Ko’s unerringly high standards, the hugely versatile and very well-equipped Al-Ko 523-SP is a machine for the serious lawn enthusiast.
It employs Al-Ko’s patented new cutter-deck technology, whereby the aerodynamic deep-domed MaxAirflow deck works to create a powerful air-stream that ensures even long and/or damp grass can be successfully collected, with no worries about the clumping that can cause the discharge-chute to become blocked (the chute is significantly wider than those found on most comparable mowers).
In addition to collection, the Al-Ko 523-SP Highline also gives the option to rear-discharge; side-discharge; or mulch cut grass, so it’s capable of taking all manner of grass-types in its stride. No tools are required to switch between modes.
The Al-Ko 523-SP Highline 4-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower has been fitted with an ultra-dependable 190cc Briggs & Stratton 650-Series four-stroke engine, which features a pleated flat-panel air-filter for superior component protection; and a float-feed carburettor for consistent first-time starts. A large-diameter recoil starter means the engine will fire-up with a gentle pull.
The high-capacity 70-litre grassbox on the Al-Ko 523-SP features Al-Ko’s new EasyClick mounts, which make it a breeze to detach and refit. A level-indicator shows when a trip to the compost-heap is imminent; while venting allows air to escape, in turn enabling the collector to be fully packed.
Equipped with an ergonomic multi-function handlebar; a wide 51cm cut and a self-propelled transmission, the Al-Ko 523-SP will allow you to finish the sort of large-scale jobs it has been designed for quickly and comfortably.
It has a seven-step height-of-cut range (30 – 80mm), which is centrally controlled for quick-and-easy adjustment; and it boasts large-diameter drive-wheels for easier turning in long-grass, and increased traction on slippery surfaces.

Quality ProductReview by DB / (Posted on 27/09/2017)I bought this to mow lawns. It is easy to operate and control. Starts first pull every time. Collector works well. Not as robust as the Hayter Harrier it replaces, but a new Hayter would have cost twice the price.
A satisfied customer at this stage - longevity is the real test.

DisappointingReview by Chris Moray / (Posted on 30/06/2013)I have 2 hours of mowing to do, a lot of it being almost field quality, so I upgraded from a push Hayter Harrier that is 20 years old. The Alko, when presented with grass 8 inches long, stops in its tracks, while the Hayter powers through it. I wish I hadn't bothered.
