Allett Push Cylinder Mowers on The Market
Push mowers are extremely environmentally friendly; there's no fuel to worry about at all .They require a little more push power than self-propelled mowers but the exercise will help keep you fit and they are generally lightweight machines so very easy to manoeuvre around the garden.
At Allett we have two options available in our push mowers; the Allett Classic 12E (Electric) and the Allett Liberty 30 (Battery). They are both great entry level mowers for keen gardeners looking to get into cylinder mowing. Lets take a look at them both.
Allett Classic 12E - 12'' Electric
The Allett Classic 12E is an entry-level electric cylinder mower which has a cutting width of 12''. This mower is ideal for small lawns up to 75m2 however can be used on larger lawns if you don't mind mowing for longer. The mower is fitted with a 5 blade cutting cylinder and also takes a scarifier cartridge. The mower is fitted with a 230V 420W motor with thermal cut out to prevent over-heating. The Classic 12E offers variable cuts per metre. There is a 50ft cable attached to the mower which can also be plugged into an extension cable for a longer reach.
The height of cut on the 12E is a dial with five pre-set heights and one for scarifying. The pre-set heights are as follows;
There are two height positions on the handlebars plus the option of folding for storage or transporting in a car. The rear roller is steel with rolled edges. The front roller which controls your height of cut is Polyethylene on the Classic 12E. This can be taken off and exchanged for the auxiliary wheel kit for cutting long grass in emergency situations (for example if you've been away on holiday and your lawn has had a growth spurt).
The grass box on the Classic 12E is 32 litres and really easy to empty as well as offering a great even fill.
Weight: 21.7kg (48lbs) with grass box

No petrol, no oil to worry about, just plug-in and mow, along with low servicing requirements.
Liberty 30- 12'' Battery Mower
The Liberty 30 is our entry-level 'push' battery mower with a 12'' cut. The benefit of the Liberty 30 over the Classic 12E is that it is cordless meaning there is no need to drag a cable around the lawn. This offers a great mowing experience. The mower is also push button start so no pulling of a cable.
