Manufacturer promises no petrol machines at show

Allett Mowers’ managing director, Austin Jarrett, stated at Saltex 2019, "We predict we will probably not have any petrol engines within our range by 2025.”

Showing the progress towards this goal, the Allett stand at this year’s SALTEX exhibition promises only battery electric mowers.

At the forefront is a new electric mode that the company is keeping that under wraps until the first morning of the show when it will be revealed on the stand. They will also show it at the ‘Eco Village’ at 12.30pm, where Austin will demonstrate its capabilities and talk about the future of battery power.

Allett says they have seen a real change in sentiment towards battery mowers over the past two years as people realise the benefits, both environmentally and for end users. T

In addition to the new Allett product, they will also be showing for the first time a concept professional greens mowing system with a new Honda battery and motor system that will retro fit existing Honda petrol mowers. Three other models complete Allett’s current battery powered line-up. The Uplift 86 Evolution, launched at Saltex 2019, is a twin blade rotary stadium mower powered by four 82V Lithium-Ion batteries with step-less forward speeds. 

The C34 Evolution is a large area walk-behind battery powered cylinder mower designed for quiet operation in sports stadiums. It features interchangeable cartridges to verticut, rake, aerate and brush as well as mow. Smaller brother of the C34E is the C27E with battery technology and designed for sports stadiums, training grounds and prestige lawns.
