Get your hands on the high-specification Atco Clipper 16 and enjoy the sort of neat, close-cropped and striped finish only a traditional cylinder-mower can achieve! It’s fitted with a precision-machined six-bladed steel cylinder that uses a scissor-like action to cleanly ‘snip’ the grass rather than tearing it like a rotary mower. As a result, you’ll be left with a fine-looking lawn that’s free of the bruising and discolouration that can lead to disease and fungal-infection. Another key advantage of cylinder-mowers is that they can cut far lower than their rotary counterparts, in this case right down to 7mm – if you like a bowling-green-style finish, the Atco Clipper 16 is worth serious consideration. Further enhancing aesthetics is the steel rear-roller which produces the pleasing striped effect that’s long characterised the British lawn. The Atco Clipper 16 Petrol Cylinder-Lawnmower is driven by a Briggs & Stratton 550-Series engine; a super-efficient 127cc power-pack with OHV technology for superior fuel-economy and extended valve-life; and a float-feed carburettor that works with B & S Magnetron® electronic-ignition to optimise starting-reliability. A Maxi-Clean™ car-style air-filter prevents the ingress of damaging debris-particulates; while a Super Lo-Tone™ muffler keeps noise down to a manageable level. Boasting a self-propelled drive, the Clipper 16 moves forward under its own steam, thereby making it ideal if your lawn’s on an incline, or has undulating sections that would be tough to cover with a push-type model. Other key features include simple, single-point cutting-height adjustment; and a space-saving quick-release fold-down handlebar.
