The German-engineered AL-KO Highline 527 VS is a very versatile 4-in-1 self-propelled petrol lawn mower with superior features such as variable speed drive and the latest Briggs & Stratton EXi engine technology.

The 163cc four-stroke overhead valve engine is air-cooled with ReadyStart feature which enables easy ignition without the need to prime. The advanced engineering on the Briggs & Stratton 675EXi engine eradicates the requirement for regular oil changes; simply check the oil levels and top up every now and again.

With user comfort a key aspect in the design process of the 527 VS, the VARIOspeed feature allows the speed of drive to be set to suit the operator's walking pace and the mowing conditions on the day. When combined with other comfort-enhancing qualities such as the optimum design of the cockpit with all operating controls within easy reach, a soft grip handlebar and the XXL smooth-running wheels, the machine is easy to manoeuvre over rough ground, even on an incline.

The AL-KO Highline 527 VS is equipped with a deep MAX AIRLFLOW steel deck which maximises the mower's performance in each of the four mowing modes. The choice of collecting, mulching, rear discharging or side discharging the grass clippings is available in one multi-functional machine. In collection mode, the large 70 litre EasyClick grass box is efficiently filled from back to front to maximum capacity, with a level indicator letting you know when it is time to empty. 

If your shed or garage is on the small side, AL-KO's clever service and storage position allows the mower to be stood on end so the underside of the deck can be accessed for cleaning and maintenance, and storage space is kept to a minimum.

With a generous 51cm (20") cutting width and centrally adjustable, seven stage cutting height, the AL-KO 527 VS Highline variable speed lawn mower is a superb all-round choice for lawns up to 1800 square metres. The machine is backed by a five year manufacturer's warranty and comes fully assembled in the box.

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 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.
