The innovative grooved roller is a great addition to your lawncare equipment and is a game changer for those wanting to achieve the most superior cuts.
This will fit the following models; Allett Kensington 17B/H, Allett Liberty 43, Stirling 43, Atco Balmoral 17''.
The grooved roller has 23% of its surface area in contact with the ground compared to 100% with the smooth front roller therefore only 23% of the grass is being layed down ahead of cutting and more grass is presented to the bottom blade. This will give you a cleaner cut leaving less stragglers.
Straight lining is much improved with the grooved roller making the mower more manoeuvrable around the garden resulting in the most perfectly straight stripes.
Steel shaft- rest of roller is made of aluminium
Benefits of the Grooved Roller:
A much cleaner cut- Helps your cylinder cut every blade of grass perfectlyNo scalping compared to the auxiliary wheelsGreat for thicker/established dense grasses where striping isn't paramount but quality of cut isImproved straight liningUseful if not mowing as often as you should be and the grass is longerDisadvantages
Poor striping compared to the smooth rollerGround pressure higher in wet conditions so the mower can sink in with the grooved roller (put your smooth back on)
Note we are offering the grooved front roller as an optional extra. You will need to re-fit the smooth roller to achieve the very best stripes. The grooved roller will be a popular choice for the homeowner as well as professional garden maintenance companies and groundsmen.
