Offering numerous high-end features and built to exacting specifications, the German-engineered Al-Ko 430BRE Premium certainly lives up to its name.Driving it is a 190cc Briggs & Stratton 625-Series engine, which is the acclaimed US manufacturer’s most powerful and popular walk-behind-mower engine. These high-torque (6.25ft-lbs), vertical-type power-packs are fitted with a performance muffler for a marked reduction in engine noise; and a pleated-paper air-filter for optimum component protection.
An electric starter means firing-up the engine will be a stress-free operation.The Al-Ko 430BRE Premium gives the user a choice of three cutting-modes (bag; rear-discharge; mulch) and has a seven-stage height-of-cut (30 – 70mm), so it can be adapted to suit whatever grass-conditions you’re faced with (height adjustment is by way of just one lever).Thanks to its aerodynamic mower-deck, which is pressed from a single sheet of steel, the Al-Ko 430BRE Premium 3-in-1 Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower is difficult to beat in its price-range when it comes to collection- and mulching-performance.
It has a single-speed self-propelled transmission, so you won’t have to struggle up inclines or across tussocky terrain; and it’s fitted with large-diameter drive-wheels for increased traction and enhanced manoeuvrability.This model has a fairly compact 42cm cutting-width, but nevertheless comes with a very roomy 70-litre grass-collector.
