I appreciate that the Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower is not a cheap machine. However, I always tell people to buy the best machine they can afford. Over the years I’ve seen people invest in quality machinery and literally they are still using the same machine 30+ years later. Not everyone can afford this type of investment for a cylinder mower. However, in the long run, I believe the investment is much cheaper than buying something of cheaper quality.
Just one word of warning, not every lawn suited to a cylinder mower. There is absolutely no doubt that a cylinder mower gives a very prestige and razor-sharp cut. However, cylinder mowers require a reasonably smooth lawn to cut efficiently and properly. If you have lots of children and animals and twigs etc on your lawn, it may be worth looking at a rear roller rotary mower. These machines can withstand rougher areas and the blade can quickly be sharpened if it is unfortunate enough to hit an obstacle. A rear roller rotary mower will also leave a decent striped finish to your lawn. I’m not trying to put you off purchasing a cylinder mower, it’s just important to purchase the right machine for the job.

Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower
The Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower is a fine piece of British engineering at its best. Allett has been making cylinder mowers since the 1970s and built up a good reputation across the world. The Allett Buckingham can bring an excellent and fine professional finish with stripes to your lawn. The Allett Buckingham 30H is recommended for lawns sizes between 650 – 1500 m².
The well-engineered cylinder mower is designed for the serious gardener and professionals who are maintaining formal lawns, gardens, bowling greens and more.
30 Inch Cut
With a 30 inch (76 cm) the Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower is capable of cutting lawns up to 1500 m². The six-bladed cutting cylinder produces 73 cups per metre, giving your lawn a razor-sharp cut. The cutting height ranges between 5 mm to 35 mm which offers micro-adjustment to get the perfect finish.
The generous 118 L grass box gives plenty of space for the grass clippings.
Unfortunately, the excellent Allett cartridge system is not available on the Buckingham range of cylinder mowers.
Honda Petrol Engine
I know of many gardeners and horticulturalists whose preferred engine is the Honda range of engines. Honda produces an excellent range of four-stroke petrol engines, which offer economy and efficiency. I have used many machines that are powered by Honda engines over the years. In some cases, I have left a machine unused for a couple of years and yet the machine still started on the first pull. Over the years, I have never had a problem with a Honda engine, which really suggests how reliable they are.
The Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower is powered by a Honda GX200 four-stroke engine. The 196cc engine develops 5.5 hp and has a fuel tank with a 3.1 L capacity.
Adjustable Handlebars And Trailer Seat
For optimum operator comfort, the Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower comes with adjustable handlebars. So whether you’re using the optional trailer seat or just walking, you can find the perfect position.
An optional trailer seat is available for the Allett Buckingham 30H Petrol Cylinder Mower. The trailing seat is designed to follow the movements of the cylinder mower to the millimetre when turning. In this way, it enables the operator to be able to cut closely to flower borders and other obstacles.
The Allett Buckingham 30H is a very fine piece of British engineering that is built to last. I appreciate that the price is not in everyone’s budget, however, you could potentially have a machine that will give you many years of reliable service and will work out cheaper in the long run.
As I mentioned earlier, make sure your lawn is suited to a cylinder mower. If you are looking for a machine that stripes your lawn but is slightly more versatile then it may be worth taking a look at our rear roller rotary mowers.
The Allett Buckingham comes with a full manufacturers warranty.
