Continuing from the ride on thread.

Again our primary brand is Alko. Superb machines, very strong wet weather performance. They have lovely deep decks to precent clogging and come with power drive, mulch kits and 70 litre solid boxes. The decks are made of one piece steel rather than most of the competition which is joined.

The range is pretty simple, choose your deck, 16/18/21" and choose your engine Loncin/Briggs/Honda. Don't discount the Loncin, its the old Honda engine officially passed on and is bullet proof.

Example price, 21" power drive loncin £379 all in.

They also launched a range of cheaper mowers last year to compete with the sheds, these are not as good quality as the premium range above but are very decent for the money and more than match the competition while still retaining the full Alko warranty and parts back up.

16" £189
18" power drive £249.
21" power drive £299.

Cobra. We keep the rear roller range in Cobra, good value machines for anyone that wants a roller.

Cobra Rear Roller Range Lawnmowers


Professional. It really is hard to look past the Weibang. Commercial machines with very robust construction and driven by a drive shaft rather than belts. The most popular model is 22" £629 all in but you can add abc clutches, different decks etc etc. All in stock.


Professional Range


We also keep the Dormak honda shaft drives in wheel and roller drive.

Again free delivery on all machines and finance available on anything over £250.

We don’t tend to get very many used walk behinds. People just keep them till theyre near scrap. I do have 2 John Deere 22” roller machines coming in against 2 Weibang’s later this week. They’re both 2018 machines and cost him £1300 each, mower linked below. Probably going to be about £450 ish.

You were hiding when I visited last week Simon, but I'm very happy with my Al-Ko Easy 5.1 - though it uses a fair bit of oil and the instructions weren't the easiest to follow.

Had I been there I would have probably pushed you into a 51.8 spa, but the easy does what it says on the tin. Oil consumption will settle when it beds in.

Simon - do you keep a small roller mower that folds up fairly nearly? My lawn hardly warrants a petrol machine, but my wee bosch electric is getting brittle round the pladtic corners so have to ask what's out there. Storage space is at a premium and I like my roller stripes!

We keep 4 or 5 of the rear roller cobra range, they’re all petrol, we don’t do any electric roller ones. Decent wee machines.

Slightly off topic but do use get many decent ride on lawnmowers traded in? @lightning
Yeah but it’s very hard to get one we would retail. Generally they’re traded in for a reason and 9 out of 10 we just trade them back out. Occasionally a good one comes in someone maybe moving house or something.
