Hints & Tips
Lawn tractors have their uses all year round and here are two from German manufacturer Al-Ko made for really big gardens.
Both have powerful Briggs & Stratton V-Twin engines and are especially good at collecting wet grass as the Hi-Lift blade produces powerful air flow to force clippings into the grass box.
The Al-Ko T16-92HD Special Edition Lawn Tractor is designed for lawns up to 8000 sq metres and has a 220-litre grass box emptied from the driver’s seat.
The hydrostatic drive means you regulate the tractor’s speed with the foot pedal, much like an automatic car.
There are six cutting-heights from 30 mm to 90 mm and the cutting deck is easily cleaned by attaching a garden hose.
It costs £2099, £500 less than the maker’s recommended price and it has a two year warranty. We deliver it free within two to three days of receiving the order.
It comes with a free tow hitch and you can buy a grass deflector for an additional £99 and a mulch kit for £89.
The AL-KO T16-102HD Edition Lawn & Garden Tractor has a wider, 102 cm cutting width making it suitable for even larger gardens.
Again it is fitted with a Briggs & Stratton twin cylinder engine with plenty of power meaning it can deal with rougher grass found on paddocks, and in orchards, with ease.
The recommended price is £2899 but we have it for sale at £2299. It also has a free tow hitch and optional grass deflector and mulch kit.
Delivery is free within two to three working days and the tractor has a two year warranty.
