Hints & Tips
A good lawn tractor is worth its weight in gold if you have a larger property and not just when the grass is growing as it can be used for a dozen and one tasks as well.
Al-Ko is a German manufacturer which makes really high quality garden machinery and these two recently introduced lawn tractors are testament to that.
The Al-Ko 12-74H Edition Lawn Tractor is really easy to use with hydrostatic transmission giving very precise control and making driving around tight areas in the garden easier.
Its cutting width is 74 and it is powered by a Briggs & Stratton Powerbuilt 344 cc engine.
These engines are built for a long life and the tractor incorporates a top anti-vibration system making it much less tiring to use.
The cutting deck is designed to create powerful airflow for efficient collection of grass clippings and other debris.
The cutting height can be adjusted from 30 to 90 mm to suit all types of grass cutting.
The grass box can take a massive 220 litres and the front mounted bumber can absorb minor bumps.
Delivery is free within three to five working days, the machine comes fully assembled and ready to use.
It costs £1649 compared with the maker’s recommended price of £1749 and there is a two years manufacturer’s warranty.
This second one is the Al-Ko 14-102H Edition Lawn Tractor is designed for larger lawns and has a cutting width of 102 cm.
It is easy to control thanks to the hydrostatic drive so you can speed up along the straight bits and slow down for the tighter turns around paths and edges.
This one is powered by a 500 cc Briggs & Stratton engine and has a 300 litre grass box so you won’t have to stop too often to get rid of the clippings.
Cutting heights are adjustable from 30 to 90 mm and a high backed driver’s seat add to the comfort of the ride.
This one is delivered free within three to five working days and arrives ready to fire up and go.
It costs £2089 compared with the maker’s recommended price of £2249.
There is a two year manufacturer’s warranty and delivery is free within three to five working days.
