Mower of the Week: Al-Ko scythe mower – an easier way to cut rougher areas

Rougher areas of land around field and garden areas can often be difficult to keep clean and for larger tasks the best machine by far is a scythe mower.
These machines used to be much heavier and harder to use than the modern ones available now which make tasks like this far quicker than traipsing around with a heavy brushcutter.

Al-Ko 870 III scythe mower
Tough tasks: Al-Ko 870 III scythe mower
This great little machine from German manufacturer Al-Ko has proved very popular and efficient and costs only £699.
The BM 870-III Scythe-Bar Mower has a 148 cc Briggs & Stratton 450 engine which not only powers the scythe cutting bars but moves the machine forward as well.
This engine has been designed with an very efficient air filter to prolong its life and to be easy to start and the engine vibrations have been fully dampened.
The machine is self-propelled and has a grass deflector to push the cut grass to one side. Other attachments are available with this machine including a snow plough!
It costs £699 and is delivered free to the UK mainland.
