With high-performance cordless machines like the Alpina AL1 38 Li now coming to market, it’s no surprise that traditional petrol-powered lawnmowers are increasingly being seen as a thing of the past! The AL1 38 Li comes with two 40V, latest-generation lithium-ion batteries that offer extended run-times and rapid charge-times; and which won’t self-discharge when not being used. Thanks to its narrow 38cm cutting-width, hand-propelled design and compact overall dimensions, the AL1 38 Li can be guided safely - and accurately - around and between those garden-obstacles. An ergonomic, height-adjustable handlebar combines with a lightweight build to confer excellent user-comfort; while a polypropylene cutter-deck will prove easy to clean-down and means you’ll never have to worry about rust. Also of note is the downtime-minimizing plastic grassbox that holds a substantial 45 liters of cut grass (if collection isn’t required, you can choose to rear-discharge cuttings).
