The Highline 526 VSI petrol lawn mower has been added to AL-KO's German-engineered line-up in response to popular demand from its customers and dealers.
This new model combines variable speed drive, electric start and 4-in-1 function to result in a quality, easy and comfortable to use petrol rotary lawn mower. Paired with a Briggs & Stratton 775 iS DOV engine and featuring a 51cm (20") cutting width, this mower is a perfect fit for lawns up to 1800 square metres.
The 161cc engine features the convenience of electric starting so no more priming, no more pulling - just touch and mow! Thanks to the lithium-ion technology used in the Briggs & Stratton InStart engines, the battery can be recharged as often as necessary, usually within minutes. The Lo-Tone muffler found on the 775 iS engine reduces noise levels when the mower is in use, whilst the DOV technology delivers guaranteed power and smooth operation when mowing the lawn.
With user comfort a key aspect in the design process of the Highline 526 VSI, 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 526 VSI 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 so it can be used in a variety of mowing environments. 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.
Don't worry 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 Highline 526 VSI variable speed lawn mower is a superb all-round choice. The machine is backed by a five year manufacturer's warranty and comes fully assembled in the box.
