Since 1965, Allett have been refining the art of creating high quality, single-cylinder, walk-behind mowers. You can experience this heritage for yourself in the perfect striped finish left on a lawn mown with the 17L petrol cylinder lawnmower from Allett’s Classic Range. The Classic 17L takes Allett’s expertise, evident in the immaculate striped lawns of public parks and country estates across the United Kingdom, Ireland and continental Europe, and places it in a compact and easy-to-use machine suitable for creating an immaculate finish on lawns of up to 250 square metres.
The Classic 17L is fitted with a five-blade “Quick Cartridge” cutting cylinder, producing sixty-six cuts per metre. The scissor-like cutting action produced by the cylinder system provides a cleaner cut than mowers which use a rotary blade system, which in turn improves the finish achieved and helps to protect your lawn from disease and fungal infection, as well as promoting thicker growth. The mower also features adjustable cutting heights, ranging from 6mm-32mm, controlled via the “dial-a-height” hand-dial conveniently located on the side of the cutting unit. As with all mowers in Allett’s Classic range, the 17L can also be fitted with a scarifier cartridge (available separately) in place of the original five-blade unit, which means that the mower can also be used to remove thatch and matted vegetable matter from your lawn during the spring and autumn months.
The 17L has a cutting width of 43.2cm, and the front polyethylene roller and single-section steel rear roller work together to produce the iconic striped finish associated with fine cylinder mowers, as well as to protect your lawn and to provide extra stability. The Classic 17L also features an 87cc Loncin four-stroke air-cooled petrol engine with a traditional recoil start system, which powers both the self-propelled drive system and the cutting unit, offering excellent performance while producing minimal noise and emissions.
