This dethatcher cassette has wider spaced thicker tines that penetrate the soil to a depth of 6mm.
The kind of beautiful green surface finish you see on the finest ornamental lawns and competition turf does not happen by accident. For grass to grow thick, healthy and verdant it requires ample access to air, water and sunlight, but as moss, leaves and dead grass accumulate on your lawn they can form a layer of “thatch” which prevents oxygen and moisture from reaching the roots of your grass. This can leave your lawn looking faded and thin.
Regular de-thatching, however, will prevent this from occurring and Allett’s de-thatcher cartridge allows you to quickly convert your Kensington cylinder mower into a potent de-thatcher. Built with a row of thick, widely spaced tines, the de-thatcher unit fits in place of your mower’s standard cutting cylinder and attacks thatch aggressively, penetrating the soil to a maximum depth of 6mm. Moreover, thanks to Allett’s “Quick Cartridge” system, the de-thatcher cartridge is easy to install without the need for specialist tools, and is available in three sizes (14”, 17” and 20”).

About AllettAllett is a wholly British-owned company (as British as queuing for a cup of tea or eating fish and chips while standing on a rainy beach) with a longstanding tradition in the design and manufacture of precision, single-cylinder, walk-behind mowers. Founded by Reg Allett almost half a century ago, Allett has since become a byword for a finely mown lawn across the UK, Ireland and continental Europe, and the distinctive black, silver and gold livery of Allett machines is recognised throughout the world. In fact, if you have ever stopped to admire the crisp, luxurious, striped finish on the ornamental lawn of an old country estate there is a good chance that one of Allett’s high quality cylinder lawnmowers was used to achieve it.
Allett’s cylinder mowers cut using a series of sharp rotating blades rather than a basic rotary blade. The cutting cylinder traps blades of grass between its spinning blades and cuts with a clean, scissor-like action, producing a crisp cut which heals more quickly for a healthier lawn. Thus, as well as the iconic stripe effect, cylinder mowers also ensure the most pristine finish possible, making them perfect for maintaining golf and bowling greens, sports stadiums, cricket wickets and outfields as well as public and private parks and gardens.
This has led to Allett machines being adopted by professional groundskeepers in all walks of life, including at many leading rugby and football clubs, country cricket clubs and the All England Club, Wimbledon. In addition to this, Allett has also been bestowed with the honour of being chosen by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to supply mowers for the upkeep of its immaculate cemeteries around the world.
More recently, Allett acquired the design and manufacturing rights for the former Atco and Suffolk Punch branded petrol and electric pedestrian cylinder mowers. These now form the basis for Allett’s Classic and Expert mowers, providing an even more extensive range of both domestic and semi-professional machines from which to choose. Thus, whatever your particular requirements, if you need to achieve a truly flawless striped finish on your lawn there is almost certainly an Allett machine ideal for you.
