  • Good manoeuvrability thanks to short wheelbase, forward and reverse gears 
  • Large working width, cutter bar with 102 cm ESM blade, optional: snow blade

    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 mowers stand for - our powerful all-rounders with comfort features - developed in Germany, made in Austria. 

    The 5001 R II Scythe Mower: the agile professional for nature gardens and meadows 

    A powerful mowing machine for the rough tasks, which is made possible by its manoeuvrability on field edges or slopes and precise mowing capabilities - and thereby guarantees an ecological garden care, as it does not damage the microorganisms living in the area. The ergonomic, vibration-damped, adjustable handlebar as well as the ability to switch the wheel drive on or off guarantees the comfortable and particularly safe guiding of the powerful device. The mowing drive for the cutterbar can also be switched on and off separately for your safety at work.

    The universal all-rounder in every season - even in winter. With the right accessories, you can quickly equip the unit for every application: whether for mowing or snow clearing (snow blade art no. 113267). The solo by AL-KO 5001 R II is your robust and efficient partner for the care and management of all nature gardens and meadows as well as for winter use. Suitable for areas up to 2,500 m², the BM 5001 R II is a compact and agile alternative to a lawn tractor. 

    Technical details of the solo by AL-KO 5001 R II:

    With its powerful 2.4kW petrol engine and a mower bar with a remarkable 102cm 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 unimaginably 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 (art. No. 113267). When using on slopes, also attach the optionally available snow chains (item no. 112883) - 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 cutterbar 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.).

Features

Under Control Under Control Height-adjustable and with vibration damping, the ergonomically shaped handlebar ensures optimum handling on rough ground as well as easy transport.
Perfect Grass Depositing Perfect Grass Depositing The movable grass deflector means that no grass is left lying on the cover, while grass depositing is improved because of the shorter distance between the wheel and the beam.
Robust in the Details Robust in the Details As well as the specially hardened ESM blades with infinitely height-adjustable outsoles, AL -KO scythe mowers are particularly characterised by their enclosed drive system. This is less prone to contamination, thus allowing longer operating times
Ready for Winter Operation Ready for Winter Operation Thanks to supplementary accessories like snowplough and snow chains, the scythe mowers can also be used effectively in the winter season.
Giving Nature Its Space Giving Nature Its Space In meadows or ecological natural gardens, it is particularly important only to use machines that are up to the job – such as AL-KO scythe mowers that can cut forage grass just as well as thick, matted weeds.

We strongly advise against the use of take-off pilot or similar. Chemicals can in the worst case lead to engine damage. We recommend a review and possibly carburettor cleaning by an AL-KO service partner

Check fuel tank contents, top up with petrol if necessary. Some suction carburetors always leave a residue of one to two cm of fuel in the tank. Residues in the fuel or a defective air filter can get dirt into the carburettor. The carburetor may need to be removed and cleaned by an AL-KO service partner .

It can take any petrol with min. 77 oct. To be used! Super Unleaded fuel is 95 oct and can be safely used. Each motor is suitable for E10 - Do not store fuel for over 4 weeks as it will start to go bad if untreated.
