Gardeners seeking a modern alternative to their old petrol machine should take a look at the cutting-edge Alpina AL1 34 Li Cordless Lawnmower! Supplying the power is a 40v battery-pack, which, thanks to its lithium-ion cell technology, offers speedier charge-times, longer run-times and improved longevity compared to increasingly outdated nickel-cadmium and lead-acid units. A versatile mower capable of handling varying grass-lengths, the AL1 34 Li features dual cutting-modes - bagging and rear-discharge - and benefits from Alpina’s provision of six-preset cutting-heights, which are simple to select using just one lever. A polypropylene cutter-deck minimizes machine-weight and brings inherent corrosion-resistance; while a very compact 34cm cut works with simple self-propulsion to make it highly maneuverable and therefore great for small lawns with numerous obstacles to negotiate. In addition, there’s a carry handle for easy lifting up steps or into the car boot; and a roomy 35-litre plastic grass-collector that will enable you to get the job done with hardly any time-consuming emptying-breaks.
