The LR 53 TK is part of Efco’s ‘Allroad Plus 4’ series of self-propelled steel deck mowers. With a wide cutting width of 51cm and a powerful engine, this machine will handle medium to large-sized gardens with ease, giving a high-quality finish on both smooth laws and rougher ground. It is also a highly flexible machine, featuring four different methods for disposing your grass cuttings: collection, side discharge, rear discharge and mulching. As well as boasting a wide range of functions, the LR 53 TK is always straightforward and comfortable to use.
For the grass collection option, the LR 53 TK has a large 70 litre capacity fabric and plastic grass box featuring tool-free easy assemblage and a handy full-bag indicator to tell you when it needs emptying, so you won’t need to stop and check. A deflector is supplied as standard for the rear and side discharge options, and is equally easy to attach as the grass bag; for the side discharge option, for example, you simply open the side tunnel and insert the deflector. This provides safety as it stops cuttings, soil and anything else on the lawn, such as stones, from being discharged in your direction. Finally, a mulching plug is also supplied as standard for the environmentally friendly mulching option; this function redistributes grass cuttings into the soil so that they can break down and work as a fertilizer, promoting healthy growth and a lush green lawn.
Flexibility is also offered by a single central lever, designed to make it easy to adjust the height of cut to one of five different positions, between 28mm and 75mm. A powerful 196cc Emak K 800 OHV engine drives the LR 53 TK, allowing it to be self-propelled at a steady 3.6 km/h, operated via engine brake and clutch levers ergonomically designed to ensure a safe and comfortable grip; engine power is complemented by the mower’s large wheels (200mm diameter for the front and 280mm for the back) to provide excellent manoeuvrability. Finally, the handlebars can be adjusted to two different positions in order to suit your height, and fold away when you have finished using the mower, making storage a lot easier.
