With almost five decades of designing and manufacturing precision, single-cylinder, walk-behind mowers, Allett have established themselves as one of the leading names in the business. Their mowers are used throughout Great Britain, Ireland and continental Europe to maintain fine ornamental lawns, parks, and greens. For keen gardeners with smaller lawns, however, Allett’s mains-powered self-propelled electric Sandringham lawnmowers, including the 12E and the 14E, offer quality engineering and excellent performance allied with ease and convenience of use. 

The 12E is the most compact model of Allett’s two electric Sandringham mowers, with a cutting width of 30cm and weighing only 24.5kg. Powered by an energy efficient 420-Watt motor, the 12E’s self-propulsion system, featuring variable speed control, compact frame and manoeuvrability make navigating borders and ornaments a breeze. Other features, such as adjustable handlebars with two height positions, a durable 32 litre polypropylene grass box with clippings compactor, and a 22.5 metre power cord only add further to the utility of this estimable machine. 

The Allett Sandringham 12E uses a five-blade “Quick Cartridge” cylinder to cut grass with a scissor-like action at a rate of around 106 cuts per metre. The cutting height can be adjusted using the “dial-a-height” hand-dial located on the side of the machine, and can be set to one of five positions over a range of 6mm-32mm. This produces the fine surface finish for which Allett mowers are renowned, while the front and rear rollers work together to produce a crisply defined and attractive stripe effect. 

It can also be fitted with a scarifier cartridge (available separately) in place of the original five-blade unit, which can be used to remove accumulated vegetable matter and detritus from grass during the spring and autumn months. Moreover, Allett’s two year warranty on parts and labour further adds to the durability and longevity of the Sandringham 12E, making it the ideal machine for the keen gardener looking to achieve a high quality finish on a smaller lawn.

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.
