Allett Cylinder Lawnmowers
Allett take great pride in their heritage. They are a wholly British-owned company, which, for almost fifty years, has specialised in the design and manufacture of precision, single-cylinder,
walk-behind mowers. And through their technological achievements they have helped produce better, more consistent sports turf surfaces and finer, more beautiful ornamental lawns.
In May 2011 Allett acquired, from Bosch Lawn and Garden, the design and manufacturing rights to the former Atco and Suffolk Punch branded petrol and electric pedestrian cylinder mowers. These have now formed the new “green and gold” Classic and Expert cylinder mower ranges.
The addition of the new Classic and Expert domestic and semi-professional cylinder mowers to the portfolio makes Turfmech the largest manufacturer of pedestrian petrol-engined cylinder mowers in Britain, delivering sustained technological advances and complete peace of mind.
The first Allett prototype was a 36" wide machine designed, built and tested in 1965 by horticultural engineer, Reg Allett who, a year later, manufactured and sold his first production mower.
Within two years of its launch, the Allett 36" was the professional groundsman's mower of choice and, by the late 1960s, these precision machines were cutting the outfields of every English Test Match venue and many county cricket grounds.
