Product Description

Please note, Allett cylinder cartridges will not fit the Atco Qualcast range. 

Air is important. That might seem like a statement of the obvious, given how useful breathing is to us on a day-to-day basis, but many fail to realise that lawns also need to “breathe” in a manner not unlike people. Grass, like any living thing, needs moisture and oxygen in order to grow and thrive, but over time soil can compact and become nigh on impenetrable. To keep your lawn looking lush and verdant it is therefore essential that the roots of your grass have access to vital nutrients, moisture and oxygen.

This is where Allett’s aerator cartridge comes in. Fitting in place of your Kensington cylinder mower’s standard cutting unit, the aerator cartridge is built with a row of tough spikes which penetrate even the toughest ground to improve the water and air content of soil and promote healthier lawn growth. Moreover, as the aerator will also prune grass roots it will invigorate growth even more. Easy to install thanks to Allett’s “Quick Cartridge” system, the aerator cartridge is available in three sizes (14”, 17” and 20”).

About Allett
Allett 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.
