The Allett Classic 12E Plus is a compact, lightweight mains-electric push lawn mower ideal for bringing a close, precision finish to smaller domestic lawns up to 75m².  It is equipped with a five-bladed QC (Quick Exchange) cutting cylinder as standard.  The optional QC scarifier cassette system turns the lawn mower into a powered lawn rake for lawn renovation and thatch removal.

Thanks to the rear roller, the Allett Classic 12E Plus cylinder mower is perfect for achieving the traditional striped, close-cut finish.  Powered by an efficient 420 watt electric motor, the Allett Classic 12E Plus is push-propelled with two stage handle to engage cylinder drive only.  It has a 30cm (12") width of cut with a simple five-position hand-dial adjustment of the cutting height between 6mm - 32mm to suit the season and grass growth conditions.  The long power cable allows access to most areas of the garden, whilst a large capacity grassbox minimises emptying trips.

The QC system - versatility at an affordable price

A major technological breakthrough came with the birth of the QC exchange concept, which is key to this range of cylinder mowers.

Quite literally, 'QC' stands for 'Quick Cartridge'.  One of the biggest innovations in the world of cylinder lawn mowing for over 75 years, it is a system which allows you to remove the cylinder blades from the mower quickly and easily as a complete cassette. You can then either have the blades re-ground or simply replace them with a new cutting cassette.  This makes maintenance of your cylinder mower much easier and prolongs its life. 

The second major benefit of the QC system is the versatility it offers. The cutting blade cassette can be simply removed and replaced by the QC lawn scarifier cassette which immediately transforms your lawn mower into a powered raker. This will clear your lawn of moss and other debris, allowing it to breathe and promotes healthy growth.

The ten blade QC cassette ensures an even closer, finer cut ideal for a professional finish to croquet and tennis lawns (not available for 12" models).

Why Allett cylinder mowers are the obvious choice.

It's your decision; do you want an area of cut grass or a real lawn?

If you just want your grass cutting, you may decide on a rotary machine, but if you want a beautifully presented lawn, you should choose an Allett cylinder mower.

High quality, luxury grade lawns and sports surfaces are mown with Allett cylinder mowers. Their superior cut, levelness of finish and production of strong stripes makes them the obvious choice.
Here's why.

Precision cutting

A cylinder mower cuts using a series of sharp spiral rotating blades. The rotating cylinder traps the blades of grass between its spinning blades and a stationary bottom blade, producing a precision, scissor-like cutting action.

Quality stripes
All quality cylinder mowers have substantial front and rear rollers. The grass is mown and then immediately rolled firmly to create a strong, clear stripe. The attractive light and dark stripes produced by a cylinder mower are recognised as being longer-lasting and more crisply-defined than those created by other mowers fitted with a rear roller alone.

Prevents scalping

The front and rear rollers of a cylinder mower run close to the point at which the grass is cut. This allows very low heights of cut to be achieved accurately without scalping.

No wheel marks
On expansive lawns, a large capacity cylinder mower - such as the Allett Buckingham 30H – applies an even downward pressure as it moves across the lawn's surface, leaving no wheel marks while minimising compaction.

Grass box access
A cylinder mower's grass box is located at the front of the machine. The contents are always visible so you know how much grass is being cut, how well the mower is cutting and whether you have the capacity to make another run across the lawn.


Allett takes great pride in its heritage. It is a wholly British-owned company which, for almost fifty years, has specialised in the design and manufacturer of precision, single-cylinder, walk-behind mowers. Through its technological achievements, the company has helped produce better, more consistent sports turf surfaces and finer, more beautiful ornamental lawns.

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. They were also trusted to prepare the pitches of leading football and rugby clubs and were specified for use at other sports venues, country estates and public parks throughout the UK, Ireland and continental Europe.

Throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Allett continued to develop its professional mower range with the introduction of the 20", 24", 30", 34" and 42" cut machines and by the early years of the current millennium, the professional cylinder mower range comprised specialist mowers for golf and bowling greens, sports stadiums, cricket wickets and outfields as well as public and private parks and gardens. In addition, the company was honoured when the Commonwealth War Graves Commission chose Allett mowers almost exclusively to maintain the grass within its immaculate cemeteries in Britain and all over the world.

In August 2007, the company was acquired by the privately-owned Turfmech Group and Allett mower production was moved to Turfmech's state-of-the-art manufacturing centre in Hixon, Staffordshire. Importantly, brand heritage expressed through its distinctive black, silver and gold livery was maintained and continues to be recognised throughout the world.

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 our 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 its portfolio makes Turfmech the largest manufacturer of pedestrian petrol-engined cylinder mowers in Britain, delivering sustained technological advances and complete peace of mind.

Today, the Allett brand of professional walk-behind cylinder mowers are leaders within their various market sectors, providing users with expertly-built, reliable, well-proven grass-cutting machines which produce a seemingly effortless first-class finish to every lawn on which they are used.

Each and every one of Allett's powerful, smooth running yet quiet machines is supported by exceptional pre- and after-sales care and attention, a service the company is delighted to offer to its customers worldwide.

Great service by the Green Reaper team during lockdown! Only used the mower once, first cut of the year and it coped well on the highest setting, an a large over grown lawn, can’t wait to use again now the lawn is shorter. Its nice and heavy solid mower. My only complaint is the collecting box rattles around A LOT whilst using the mower...otherwise would have rated it top marks

Traditional metal cylinder mower with an excellent cut on my flat lawns. Well built but a little heavy if you have a lot of steps to negotiate. I am very happy with the appearance of my lawns even after a single pass. A very good purchase.

Very pleased so far with the lawn mower. Easy to use and adjust height of the cut.

I've used some cheaper (mainly plastic) alternatives to this mower that 'did the job' but the poor quality of construction was quite evident. Had a serious desire to own this type of lawn mower for some time but the cost put me off a bit. Finally decided to go for it and purchase one (especially with the scarifier option) and am absolutely delighted with it. The quality of construction is just so reassuring and feels so in use which makes it a very good value for money machine. Wished I had purchased one a long time ago!
