AL-Ko’s new Highline Range mowers combine premium-quality engineering with cutting-edge technologies and a raft of user-friendly features, with the resulting machines representing a great-value choice for the more discerning home gardener. The Al-Ko 473P Highline lets you choose between four operating modes – collect; rear-discharge; side-discharge; mulching – so you’ll be able to work effectively in the sort of conditions that would likely defeat a less versatile mower (each function is quickly selected; no tools needed).
The patented deep-domed steel-plate cutter-deck on the Al-Ko 473P Highline 4-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower features Al-Ko’s unique MaxAirflow technology, whereby under-deck airflow is optimised so as to maximise performance in terms of bagging and mulching. This, along with the provision of an extra-wide discharge-chute, means that even long and/or damp grass can be known without fear of clumping and blockages.A push-type mower, the Al-Ko 473P can be used in tight areas that would be tricky to negotiate with a self-propelled mower that’s essentially always trying to ‘run away with itself’. Also, you’ll find it easier to guide around and between shrubs and ornaments.As if it weren’t versatile enough, this German-designed lawnmower has a seven-stage height-of-cut (30 – 80mm), so a ‘just so’ finish is easily achievable (adjustment is via just the one lever).
It’s supplied with a high-capacity vented grass-catcher, which features Al-Ko’s EasyClick mounts for effortless removal and refitting; while its large-diameter, wide-profile wheels and low-weight build 29kg make it a breeze to push along.Power for the Al-Ko 473P Highline is delivered by a high-torque Briggs & Stratton four-stroke engine with a substantial 140cc cylinder displacement; a rust-resistant aluminium muffler; and an oil-foam air-filter for optimum engine protection. This model has a 46cm width-of-cut; perfect for the medium- to larger-sized lawn.
