Anyone maintaining a medium-sized lawn or rough-grass area that contains bumpy sections and slopes that you’d struggle to traverse with a push mower should take a good look at AL-Ko 473SP, with its rear-wheel power-drive and 46cm cut. Powering the wheels and blade is a 140cc Briggs & Stratton 500-Series engine; a high-performance four-stroke power-pack that’s characterised by its high-torque operation; unwavering reliability; and low fuel-consumption.
An oil-foam air-filter works with splash-type lubrication to ensure engine parts are not prone to premature wear; while B & S’s provision of an aluminium muffler means corrosion won’t prove a problem.The Al-Ko 473SP Highline is a four-in-one model that offers the following cutting-options: bagging; mulching; side-discharge; rear-discharge. With the correct mode selected, you’ll be able to achieve excellent results no matter what the grass-type – for example, rear-discharge and collection are ideal for average grass-conditions; mulching works best on short, dry grass; and side-discharge is the obvious choice if you’ve let the grass get a bit out of hand.Employing Al-Ko’s MaxAirflow technology, whereby under-deck aerodynamics are optimised, the Al-Ko 473SP Highline 4-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower will suck-up all the cut-grass from your lawn-surface, with nothing left behind to spoil the aesthetics.
An extra-wide discharge-chute allows for the successful mowing of very long grass.An ergonomic handle configuration and control layout make for comfortable, low-fatigue operation; while Al-Ko’s EasyClick mounts make the fitting and removal of the capacious 70-litre grassbox quick and simple.Also featured is a seven-step cutting-height, adjustable between 30 and 80cm, depending of the length of the grass and the finish you prefer.
