The AL-KO Highline 51.7 SP-H combines the reliability of a world-renowned Honda engine, the quality and performance of German engineering, and the adaptability of four mowing options.

This 51cm (20") self-propelled petrol rotary lawn mower will take large expanses of lawn up to 1,800 square feet in its stride, even on slopes thanks to the self-propulsion and extra large, smooth-running rear drive wheels.

The easy-starting Honda GCV 160 four-stroke engine, with overhead cam technology, offers better fuel efficiency, higher power output and quieter, smooth performance, as well as ease of use and maintenance.

AL-KO's MAX AIRFLOW steel deck is dome-shaped to optimise cutting and collection. In addition, the 51.7 SP-H offers the flexibility of mulch mowing, discharging to the side or to the rear of this 4-in-1 machine, to cater for everything from a well manicured formal lawn to larger, rougher areas of grass. Versatility is further enhanced by the centralised cutting height which can be adjusted through seven pre-set stages from 30mm to 80mm to suit conditions.

The grass catcher holds an impressive 70 litres of grass clippings and, with less trips to the compost to empty, a fill level indicator will alert you when it is full.

As with all the lawn mowers in the Highline range, AL-KO's upright storage function saves space in the shed and gives easy access to beneath the mower deck for cleaning and maintenance.

For peace of mind, the AL-KO Highline 51.7 SP-H petrol lawn mower is backed by an industry-leading five year manufacturer's warranty for domestic use.

Honda GCV160 engine

Honda Engine

The GCV 160 engine is a world-renowned power unit, which is incredibly reliable and fuel efficient, while also being very quiet running and easy to start.

AL-KO overhead camshaft 

Overhead Camshaft (OHC) Engine

Overhead Camshaft engines (OHC) are similar to OHV engines, but they also have their camshafts positioned in the cylinder head above the combustion chamber. This means they offer all the benefits of an OHV design and more.

The OHC layout reduces the number of valve train components, which allows them to be lighter and stronger.  This makes the engine more compact and lightweight overall.

Honda’s OHC design offers additional advantages:

  • By combining unique rocker arms and a single camshaft, the cam pulley is located on the side of the cylinder head.  This allows overall engine height to be reduced in comparison to a conventional OHC engine.
  • The efficient Honda OHC mechanism uses a timing belt in oil configuration combined with governor and connecting rod slinger paddles.  This unique DuaLube™ System efficiently and effectively delivers oil throughout the engine.


The mower is equipped with a clutch which, when engaged, propels the mower forward, reducing the amount of effort expended by the operator.


4-IN-ONE Function

A multi-purpose machine, AL-KO's prized 4-in-1 function features mowing, collecting, mulching and side discharge capabilities.

AL-KO Highline MaxAirflow technology


Extra tall, extra large – that's the basis for MaxAirflow technology. This is because the extra tall steel plate deck and extra large discharge channel increase the airflow by 42 per cent. As a result, the grass clippings are not transported at a low level into the grass catcher as in the case of most standard lawnmowers, but are instead thrown backwards in a high arc and remain at the back. This means the grass catcher is effectively filled from the back, without the discharge channel becoming blocked. Another bonus: The removable service flap for convenient mower maintenance.

Full Catcher, Fewer Interruptions

MaxAirflow technology means that the lawn clippings are thrown to the back of the grass catcher, as a result of which it is filled to the top and does not have to be emptied so often.

No Green Fingers

MaxAirflow technology means that it is even possible to mow long, damp grass without leaving clumps behind on the ground or blocking the discharge channel. This means your hands stay cleaner.

AL-KO mower efficient controls

Efficient Controls 

The Highline lawn mower range features efficient controls including a sculpted drive lever to avoid trapping fingers.


AL-KO Service Position

An innovative AL-KO concept, this mower features a unique Service Position which enables the mower to stand on end when the fuel tank is empty.  This allows easy cleaning and maintenance of the underside of the mower deck.

Other Key Features

Large EasyClick grass box with level indicator.

Comfortable, seven stage cutting height is simple to adjust using a single lever.

Extra high drive wheels for added traction and easier turning in long grass.

Ball bearing wheels won't stiffen up over time.

Mulch plug is included.

Main lawn mower body comes fully assembled in the box.
