Having unlimited control over large natural gardens, parks, open spaces and meadows and cultivate them in a highly professional manner. This is what the solo by AL-KO scythe mower stand for - our powerful all-rounders with comfort features - developed in Germany, made in Austria. 

With its powerful 2.4 kW petrol engine and a mower bar with a remarkable 102 cm cutting width, this scythe mower provides you with superior performance. You can mow areas up to 2500 m² efficiently, quickly, effortlessly and thoroughly - in an ecological way when compared to a mower with rotating blades. Despite the large cutting width of the mower, the width between each tyre edge is only 55 cm and the low wheel-to-bar distance of only 45 cm enables easy manoeuvrability.

The strong 190 cc Briggs & Stratton engine ensures fast and even work. It powers the drive to the blade which can be switched on and off (with the cutter bar mounted) as well as the wheel drive which has a forward and reverse gear, which can also be switched on and off as required. The mower shows its strengths in rough terrain where the forward and reverse gears can be used to safely navigate through challenging conditions. In conjunction with the height-adjustable, vibration-damped handlebar for the perfect, fatigue-free device guidance and the 13-inch, air-filled wide tyres with agricultural profile, optimal handling on any terrain and slopes up to about 20° is achievable - and all in comfort.

Highly flexible - two devices in one: The basic device can be quickly and easily converted to the right job with suitable components. In winter, the 5001 R II mower is converted to a practical snow plough in an instant. Simply swap the cutter bar with the snow plough. When using on slopes, also attach the optionally available snow chain - and you're ready to go!

On the one hand, the powerful workhorse for the rough can cope with any scrub and terrain and on the other, its special design elements that ensure a very clean, residue-free mowing: The movable grass deflector and the short distance between wheel and cutter-bar ensure perfect grass depositing without grass residue laying on the device cover or blades which minimises interruptions and cleaning effort.

Note: The details of mowing areas may vary depending on the nature of the crop being harvested (grass height, density, degree of humidity, etc.).
