This high-specification rotary lawn mower from acclaimed garden machinery manufacturers Al-Ko packs-in the premium-features and employs cutting-edge engineering solutions; a combination that makes it a must-have machine for the more exacting home gardener.
The Al-Ko 523-VS Highline 4-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower utilises an Al-Ko MaxAirflow cutter-deck, which has a very deep dome that works to optimise under-deck air-flow, in turn ensuring long or damp grass is powered through the extra-wide discharge-chute and into the 70-litre catcher with no clumping or blockages (EasyClick mounts make the removal and refitting of the catcher a doddle).
As well as bagging, the Al-Ko 523-VS also offers mulching; side-discharge; and rear-discharge modes, so it’s a great performer on both fine lawns and informal rough-grass areas. Featuring a variable-speed power-drive, whereby you can adjust the mower’s ground-speed without clunky gear changes, the Al-Ko 523-VS is highly manoeuvrable and can be operated at the most effect pace for the prevailing conditions. It’s powered by a very high-performance 190cc Briggs & Stratton 650-Series engine; a premium-grade four-stroke unit that has a float-feed carburettor for dependable first-pull ignition; and an automotive-type pleated paper air filter for an impressively lengthy engine-life, even if you’re regularly mowing in dusty conditions.
