With almost fifty years of experience in the design and manufacture of walk-behind cylinder lawnmowers and a reputation for quality with which few can compete, Allett’s range of Kensington petrol mowers, including the 14K, 17K and 20K, are precision engineered to meet the needs of keen home gardeners seeking to achieve a professional-quality finish on medium to large lawns.
The Kensington 14K, with a cutting width of 35cm, is ideally suited for the maintenance of lawns up to 150 square metres in size. It employs a six-blade “Quick Cartridge” cutting cylinder to produce a scissor-like action which cuts grass cleanly and efficiently at a rate of approximately 79 cuts per metre. The cutting height can be set with precision to between 6mm and 32mm via a stepless micro-adjust knob, and the robust front and rear rollers combine to produce an even finish and an attractive stripe effect. The 14K’s cutting cylinder and self-drive system are powered by a 98cc Kawasaki four-stroke petrol engine with a 1.6 litre fuel tank, and operated via a throttle lever and a twin-split bale bar for separate cutting cylinder and rear roller control which allows for the blades to be disengaged without having to stop the engine.
All of the petrol mowers in Allett’s Kensington range can be quickly and easily fitted with either a scarifier cartridge or a ten-blade cutting cylinder (available separately) in place of the standard six-blade unit. The scarifier allows the 14K to be used for the removal of vegetable matter and detritus from turf during the spring and autumn months, while the ten-blade cutting unit increases the clip rate to around 131 cuts per metre and offers a finer finish.
Manufactured in Britain, the 14K also comes with Allett’s two-year warranty on parts and labour, further enhancing the machine’s already impressive durability and longevity. Allett’s Kensington 14K is therefore perfect for the discriminating gardener seeking to achieve a pristine finish on their lawn.

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.
