Allett’s five decades of experience designing high quality walk-behind cylinder lawnmowers have gained them a reputation for reliability and an undisputed place as a market leader in the manufacture of top-class garden machinery. Investing in a machine from the Kensington range of petrol mowers, including the 14K, 17K and 20K, is therefore an investment in precision engineering and commitment to quality that any gardener who takes pride in his or her lawn would be well-advised to make.
The Kensington 17K is a self-propelled cylinder mower powered by a 98cc Kawasaki four-stroke petrol engine and fitted as standard with a six-blade “Quick Cartridge” cutting cylinder capable of delivering up to 79 cuts per metre. This array produces a scissor-like cutting action which cuts grass cleanly, allowing your lawn to heal more quickly and providing a pristine finish. For an even finer surface finish, an optional ten-blade cutting cylinder (available separately) slots quickly and easily in place of the standard six-blade cassette, increasing the clip rate to around 131 cuts per metre. The 17K also features front and rear stainless steel rollers for an enhanced striped effect and to improve the stability and manoeuvrability of the machine. Moreover, the cut height can be set with precision to any height between 6mm and 32mm depending on the condition of your lawn, while the inclusion of an adjustable grass rake behind the front roller boosts performance by teasing lateral grass upright before it is cut.
All of the petrol mowers in Allett’s Kensington range can be quickly and easily fitted with a scarifier cartridge. The scarifier cassette is of particular value in spring and autumn, as it allows for the removal of leaf litter and other vegetable matter from the surface of your lawn. The British manufactured Kensington 17K also comes with Allett’s two-year warranty on parts and labour, providing additional peace of mind for owners of this durable and efficient machine. Allett’s Kensington 17K is a top class lawnmower by any standards, ideal for anyone seeking to achieve a manicured finish on their lawn.
