LAWNMOWERS DIRECT SERVICE UPDATE - IMPORTANT NOTICE
The Atco Quattro 19S self-propelled mower has a 48cm cutting width is powered by a Briggs & Stratton engine. Features include mulching plug, large grass collector, bag full indicator and 6 cutting height positions. Suitable for lawns up to 40m x 40m.
The word “quattro” means “four” in Italian. “Quattro” is thus an appropriate name for Atco’s outstanding range of four-wheeled rotary lawnmowers, to which the Quattro 19S 4-in-1 belongs. These mowers are so named for their four smooth-running wheels, which sit neatly on each corner of the chassis to ensure exceptional manoeuvrability even on uneven terrain. Coincidentally, however, the Quattro 19S 4-in-1 also offers four distinct cutting modes, thereby living up to its name in more ways than one. More than anything, however, the Quattro 19S 4-in-1 is simply an excellent way of keeping lawns in medium to large gardens looking magnificently pristine.
We’ll begin with that four-in-one cutting action, as this versatility is a big part of what makes the Quattro 19S 4-in-1 stand out. With a rotary cutterblade powered by an efficient Briggs & Stratton 625E Series 150cc four-stroke engine and a 48cm (19”) cutting width, the Quattro 19S is happily capable of maintaining lawns up to 1600m2 in size. Its versatility, meanwhile, means that the Quattro 19S can also perform exceptionally in gardens with varying grass conditions. The standard cut and collection mode is great for achieving a tidy finish, with its hard-topped 70 litre canvas grass collector gathering all clippings as you cut. In longer grass or when an immaculately tidy finish isn’t a priority, however, the side and rear discharge modes will allow you to get the job done with remarkable efficiency.
The mulching mode is better still, offering the pleasing tidiness of cut and collection along with the efficiency of collection-free mowing. Activated by inserting a mulching plug which holds grass in the cutting chamber for longer, the Quattro 19S’s mulching mode reduces cuttings to tiny fragments which are then released onto the lawn below. These mulched cuttings then break down to release valuable nutrients and moisture, boosting the health of your lawn. Between the four cutting modes offered by the Quattro 19S 4-in-1, you will therefore be able to handle almost any mowing job in any garden, while centralised six-position cutting height adjustment (featuring settings between 26mm and 72mm) provides admirable precision and further boosts adaptability.
As well as powering the cutting system, the Quattro 19S 4-in-1’s hardworking Briggs & Stratton engine also drives a single-speed self-propulsion system for a steady forward speed of 3.6km/h. This added power makes mowing in larger gardens or on undulating lawns much less tiring, and when combined with the mower’s large, smooth-running wheels and an ergonomically designed handlebar ensures brilliant manoeuvrability. Furthermore, with extra features including a hose inlet for quick cleaning and a “bag full” indicator to show when the grass collector needs emptying, the Quattro 19S 4-in-1’s user-friendliness extends far beyond just the handling!
On top of all of this the Quattro 19S 4-in-1 is built with a tough steel chassis for outstanding durability and supplied as standard with a five year manufacturer’s warranty. This means that this impressive little mower is perfectly capable of providing years of reliable service regardless of how hard you work it, so any home gardener looking for an effective way of maintaining a complicated lawn would do well to give Atco’s Quattro 19S 4-in-1 some serious consideration.

In 1921 the first 900 petrol-powered Atco lawnmowers rolled off the production line at the Atco mowers factory in Birmingham and were delivered, believe it or not, by a man on a motorcycle with a specially developed side-car for transportation of these heavy machines. Things have moved on a little since then for Atco mowers, but one thing remains the same — the quality of the Atco mowers and products is as good as it ever was, and even though they expanded into different areas of the garden machinery market, it is their cylinder mowers that they are best know for. The Atco name is synonymous with the British gardening scene and the company has been awarded two Royal Warrants, the first in 1955 from Queen Elizabeth II and again in 1986, this time from HRH The Prince Of Wales.
Robert Bosch GmbH acquired Atco-Qualcast Ltd in 1995 and this brought a modern approach to the manufacturing process with the cylinder mowers that the company is famous for changing tremendously, becoming more light-weight with a marked increase in usability and performance; the introduction of the now famous QX Quick Exchange Cassette System, for instance, allows gardeners to change their lawn application needs without changing machine. Not happy with manufacturing the highest quality products, Atco leads the way in environmental compliance, being the first garden machinery manufacturer to be awarded the environmental management standard BS EN ISO 14001.
