Combining a sizeable 51cm cutting-width with a capacious 60-litre grassbag and an effort-saving rear-wheel power-drive, the Alpina AL6 51 VHQ is a fast, efficient and comfortable way to maintain a larger lawn! Supplying the power is a Honda GCVx170 engine; a premium 167cc four-stroke air-cooled unit that produces a substantial 3.3kW @ 2900rpm; and which employs the famous Japanese manufacturer’s fuel-saving and emission-cutting OHV technology. Honda’s Auto Choke system makes starting fast and hassle-free; while their provision of an aluminum cylinder-sleeve means you can be sure of a lengthy engine-life. The Alpina AL6 51 VHQ is exceptionally versatile, with its four cutting-modes (bagging; mulching; rear/side-discharge) making it possible to manage a wide variety of grass conditions. It benefits from a variable-speed drive, which lets work at a pace that’s most suitable for the grass-length and terrain; and it runs on ball-bearing-mounted wheels that will continue to turn freely and smoothly with age. The ergonomic soft-grip handlebar on the AL6 51 VHQ can be adjusted to suit any operator using a pair of cam-locks. Other important features include a washing-link for straightforward under-deck cleaning; a steel deck that confers rugged durability; and a carry-handle for easy lifting up steps or into the back of the car.
