Hints & Tips
German manufacturing and engineering company Al-Ko produces excellent lawnmowers and all manner of garden machinery and with the temperatures at last easing up, here are some exclusive deals to welcome the grass cutting season.
First, is the Al-Ko 42 BR-A Power-Driven Petrol Lawn Mower made for lawns around 800m2 and letting you choose between collecting the cut grass, mulching it when conditions allow or discharging it at the back.
At its heart is a 140cc engine and it has cutting heights from 25mm to 75mm.
The cutting width is 42cm and it has the power to take on sloping lawns and the uneven patches which are a struggle for some machines.
The larger rear wheels mean this is easily achieved and it has a 65-litre grass box.
At the end of the day, it has been designed so all you need do it stand it on end to clean it out to prevent corrosion.
It costs £249, £80 off the recommended price and it has a two-year warranty and free next working day delivery.
This next one has a wider, 51cm cutting deck and is made for larger lawns in mind, say up to 2000m2.
The Al-Ko 51BR Comfort Power-Driven Petrol Combi Lawn Mower has a 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine and lets you collect, mulch or discharge the cuttings to the back.
It has a specially-designed cutting deck to optimise airflow which in turn provides excellent collection or damp and wet grass – always handy in British conditions.
It has seven cutting heights from 27mm to 75mm and a large 65-litre grass box with an indicator to show when it is full.
It costs £369, £110 off the recommended price and is delivered free the next working day with a two-year warranty.
And the Al-Ko 5250HWS Easy Mow ‘Vari-Speed’ High Wheeler Petrol Power Driven Lawn Mower (Honda Engine) is a top of the range mower made for long life with a cutting deck reinforced with aluminium.
Additionally, it has a Honda 160cc engine with a 51cm cutting width making it suitable for lawns up to around 2000m2.
Extra-large rear wheels mean it can handle rough and sloping areas in its stride and again it has the company’s Ultimow steel cutting deck to increase airflow.
There are seven cutting heights from 30mm to 80mm and you can collect, mulch or discharge cut grass. It has a 70-litre grass box and a handle so it is easier to lift into the car boot.
It costs £499, £200 less than the recommended price and has a five-year warranty. Delivery the next working day is free.
