At Allett, we take great pride in our heritage. We are a wholly British-owned company, which, for almost fifty years, has specialised in the design and manufacture of precision, single-cylinder, walk-behind mowers. Through our technological achievements we have helped produce better, more consistent sports turf surfaces and finer, more beautiful ornamental lawns.
- Precision cutting
A cylinder mower cuts using a series of sharp spiral rotating blades. The rotating cylinder traps the blades of grass between its spinning blades and a stationary bottom blade, producing a precision, scissor-like cutting action.
- Quality stripes
All quality cylinder mowers have substantial front and rear rollers. The grass is mown and then immediately rolled firmly to create a strong, clear stripe. The attractive light and dark stripes produced by a cylinder mower are recognised as being longer-lasting and more crisply-defined than those created by other mowers fitted with a rear roller alone.
- Prevents scalping
The front and rear rollers of a cylinder mower run close to the point at which the grass is cut. This allows very low heights of cut to be achieved accurately without scalping.
- No wheel marks
On expansive lawns, a large capacity cylinder mower - such as the Allett Buckingham 30H – applies an even downward pressure as it moves across the lawn's surface, leaving no wheel marks while minimising compaction.
- Grass box access
A cylinder mower's grass box is located at the front of the machine. The contents are always visible so you know how much grass is being cut, how well the mower is cutting and whether you have the capacity to make another run across the lawn.
- 10 bladed cutting system
10-bladed cutting unit cartridges are available for all three models where the precision finish of a golf or bowling green is required. Fits in place of standard 6-bladed cutting unit. Replacement 5 and 6-bladed cutting unit cartridges are also available.
- 5 cartridge types
Aerator – Slits soil to ease air/water movement. Has the added benefit of pruning the roots causing vigorous growth and activity
Lawn brush – Clearing worm casts and general surface debris. Brilliant for covering renovating seed material or to work in top dressing. A gentle lawn treatment with fantastic results.
Dethatcher – With its wider spaced thicker tines, this is the most aggressive, penetrating the soil removing the densest layers of thatch.
Verticutter – Thin and closely spaced tines remove lateral growth and moss. Encourages grass to tiller and creates a denser more regimented sward.
Scarifier – Spring tine scarifier gently removes moss as an in season treatment, also attacks/disturbs coarse grasses and those creeping weeds.
