Allett reveals Stirling battery mower: Allett has introduced the Stirling battery mowers to their electric range. This, they say, is a unique mower for the lawn connoisseur, be they a homeowner who is an expert in lawncare, or the professional, demanding the perfection of a greens mower at a fraction of the cost of a professional one.
The Stirling is not just a mower but a complete lawncare system which utilises all the Allett Cartridges (adaption kit required) to achieve a greens standard ultra-low finish. With all the benefits of electric drive, the Stirling is packed with features previously unavailable outside Allett’s professional mower range for groundsmen and greenkeepers. Working with EGO’s renowned Power-Plus Arc Lithium-Ion battery system, they have designed a new generation of innovative, eco friendly, quiet yet powerful, versatile mowing and maintenance systems. Versatile because there is a greater range of lawn finishes with the height of cut range from 5mm to 50mm. Deeper cultivation for improved lawn treatment is made simple with the quick change cartridges that can be changed in under fifteen seconds.
The all-electric drive means quieter mowing at any time of the day, with no pollution at the point of cutting, no fuel collection and storage, push button starting and greater reliability. Two electric motors independently drive the rear roller and cartridge blades, with the EGO 56V battery generating masses of power for up to 900m² of continuous mowing at top speed. The battery will also fit into any EGO garden tool. The bottom blade has been made thicker with greater rigidity for trouble-free and accurate cutting. There is a roller-only drive option, so no rotating blades when travelling between lawns, and variable speed roller-drive offers more control for better mowing and cultivation results.
The Stirling is perfectly balanced with the weight over the rear roller, which means longer lasting, more contrasting stripes. It is also a split roller to ensure less turf wear and scuffing when turning. The independent drive speed allows you to travel at the right speed and the pull back and over-ride features allow effortless control and easy turning. The mower drive controls are simple and easy to use, with hand-palm recessed roller drive engagement. A LED battery charge light is continuously visible, so you know at a glance the battery’s remaining charge level and an overload warning light tells you if the mower is being worked too hard for the motors or battery.
There is also a front roller that is free wheeling for better battery life, less effort and accurate and consistent height control. The power system is neatly integrated into the chassis to provide good visibility of the front roller. An easy, turn-wheel accurately sets the height of cut, with an indicator to take the guesswork out of adjustment. The grassbox is lightweight, with a wire frame and perforated material stretched over it. Easy to carry and lift when it’s full, it also breaks down for winter storage. A lawn rake is a retained feature from other Allett mowers because customers say they love it. The Allett Stirling comes in two models, the Stirling 43 and Stirling 51 with 17” (430mm) and 20” (510mm) mowing width, respectively. Saltex Stand No. K009. Allett Mowers Ltd. 01889 271503
