The Atco Liner 16SH is a self propelled roller rotary lawnmower powered by a Honda GCV 160 Autochoke engine with a robust steel chassis with an anti-scalp comb. The width of cut is 41cm. The height of cut can be adjusted through 5 preset positions.
There aren’t too many names for a range of rear roller lawnmowers more prosaic than “Liner” (other than maybe calling them “stripemakers”), but at least the Atco Liner 16SH’s moniker is an apt one. It is apt because this lawnmower has been designed to produce a crisp stripe on lawns in medium-sized domestic gardens, allowing homeowners to achieve the kind of luxuriously beautiful finish usually associated with high quality sporting turf or English country manors. It does this while also being easy to operate, efficient and reassuringly reliable. It is, in short, a rather special lawnmower.
Unlike some cylinder mowers – the machines typically used by professional grounds maintenance personnel to produce a striped effect on ornamental lawns – Atco’s Liner 16SH features a sturdy rotary cutterblade and can therefore handle mowing on the uneven ground and in the longer grass often found in domestic gardens, all while still producing a high quality, striped finish. This makes the Liner 16SH perfect for those seeking a quick and simple way of achieving great looking results in the garden without the extra expense or maintenance demands of investing in a commercial grade machine. And with its powerful 160cc Honda GCV160 OHC four-stroke engine and single-speed self-propulsion system, the Liner 16SH makes routine lawn maintenance nigh on effortless.
Featuring a working width of 41cm (16”) and with a hard-topped 55 litre canvas grass collector supplied as standard, the Liner 16SH delivers exceptional cut and collection performance in small to medium-sized gardens. It does this using the cutterblade to trim grass and a stabilising roller to even out your turf as you advance, leaving an immaculate finish in its wake. To further ensure a quality finish, moreover, the Liner 16SH also features a front-mounted anti-scalp comb and a centralised cutting height adjustment system (featuring five settings between 20mm and 70mm). It has thus never been easier to achieve great cutting results in a variety of grass conditions, while an ergonomically designed handlebar ensures comfort and control while you work.
And to make things even better the Liner 16SH is also pleasingly tough, with high quality components used throughout and a durable steel chassis offering excellent protection against the bumps and scrapes inevitably incurred during routine lawn maintenance. But in case that wasn’t enough Atco has also included a five year manufacturer’s warranty with every machine for complete peace of mind, so investing in Atco’s Liner 16SH is also an investment in the long term quality of your lawn.

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.
