Cylinder vs rotary
WHY CHOOSE ALLETT MOWERS?
CYLINDER MOWER VS ROTARY MOWER
Here’s why an Allett Cylinder Mower is the obvious choice:
Would you be happy with a sad little area of cut grass, or would you prefer a real lawn to show off?
Rotary machines may be the best option if you’re just looking to cut your lawn like everybody else, but if you want a beautifully presented lawn then you should choose an Allett Cylinder Mower.
High quality, luxury grade lawns and sports surfaces are mown with Allett cylinder mowers. Our cylinder mowers’ superior cut, levelness of finish, and production of strong stripes make an Allett cylinder mowers the obvious choice.
A cylinder mower cuts using a series of sharp spiral rotating blades. The rotating cylinder traps the blades of grass between its spinning blades and a stationary bottom blade, producing a precision, scissor-like cutting action.
All quality cylinder mowers have substantial front and rear rollers. The grass is mown and then immediately rolled firmly to create a strong, clear stripe. The attractive light and dark stripes produced by a cylinder mower are recognised as being longer-lasting and more crisply-defined than those created by other mowers fitted with a rear roller alone.
The front and rear rollers of a cylinder mower run close to the point at which the grass is cut. This allows very low heights of cut to be achieved accurately without scalping.
NO WHEEL MARKS
On expansive lawns, a large capacity cylinder mower ”“ such as the Allett Buckingham 30H, applies an even downward pressure as it moves across the lawn’s surface, leaving no wheel marks while minimising compaction.
GRASS BOX ACCESS
A cylinder mower’s grass box is located at the front of the machine. The contents are always visible so you know how much grass is being cut, how well the mower is cutting and whether you have the capacity to make another run across the lawn.
Rotary mowers rely on a high speed rotating blade to cut the grass like a machete.
Each blade of grass is precisely cut with a scissor-like action between the spinning cylinder blade (blue) and the stationary bottom blade (red).
