Bosch ALR 900 Electric Lawn Raker

  • Product Details

    The Bosch ALR 900 Electric Lawn Raker really maximise the health and appearance of your grass. This lawnraker offers the ideal solution for any lawn that is choked by moss and leaves: the debris is combed from the grass and blown into the collection box by a powerful jet to allow a fast, smooth and convenient raking experience. Those who have only ever used a hand-rake for this job will be astonished at the speed and convenience that this machine can bring to a formerly slow and arduous process.

    The ALR 900 is notable chiefly for its innovative “Jet-Collect” system: the ten double-wound steel tines lift moss, weeds, thatch and leaves out of the grass, and the special airflow inlets in the drum both increase the rate of collection and transfer the material quickly into the collection drum. The powerful airflow also compacts the material inside the collection box, and this fact combined with the generous capacity of 50l allows the operator to spend as much time raking and as little time emptying the collecting box as possible.

    Bosch have also incorporated their “Powerdrive” system, which combines with the 900W motor to maximise the power and efficiency of the lawnraker: when the going gets tough, the system senses the increased load on the combs and increases the torque sent from the engine to ensure that an even speed is maintained.

    The 32cm cutting width is wide enough to be useful but not so wide that manoeuvrability is compromised. Weighing in at only 9.4kg, the ALR 900 is also light enough to use and transport easily, no matter what your strength or experience. For added convenience, twin levers allow you to adjust the height of the combs to account for different lawn conditions. The lowest setting, -5mm, brings the tines down to scratch just below the surface of the lawn, allowing for easy collection of shallow-rooted debris like moss and weeds. The highest setting, +10mm, allows for easy collection of surface debris such as leaves. This versatility makes the ALR 900 ideal for use throughout the gardening year in a variety of ways.

    When you have finished using your lawnraker and wish to store it, the collecting box comes apart into two pieces which are stackable on top of the main unit, and the double folding “Z” handles fold right down. These reductions in height transform the ALR 900 into a neat, compact shape no more than 40cm high, thus making the machine as easy to store as it is to use.

    About Bosch
    Since the humble beginnings in Stuttgart, 1886, when Robert Bosch formed his own business manufacturing electronic components, the ‘Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering' has become one of the biggest and best known manufacturers of domestic and industrial electrical products in the world. The willingness to improve on established designs started almost immediately and it is this ethos that has kept Bosch GmbH and Bosch lawnmowers ahead of their rivals ever since. This innovation is quite apparent in the present range of Bosch lawnmowers and garden products that include tools no other garden machinery manufacturer produces.

    Whatever size your garden, there is bound to be a Bosch lawnmower to suit it. The Bosch Rotak electric and cordless mowers exemplify the company’s willingness to innovate with features such as grass combs that enable mowing up to the edges of lawn borders and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with virtually no drop-off in performance after extended use. Aside from Bosch lawnmowers, notable inventions are the Ciso Cordless Secateur and Isio Cordless Shrub Shear, tools that allow users with physical weaknesses to carryout day-to-day gardening tasks without discomfort. There is no doubt that if a garden tool can be improved upon, Robert Bosch GmbH is probably designing its successor already.
