A self propelled dedicated mulch mower with added side discharge facility. The design of the mower deck on the AL-KO mulching mowers is designed to provide optimal mulching performance in all conditions. Powered by an easy to start 139cc AL-KO Pro 145 QSS engine and a single speed wheel drive to the front wheels, the AL-KO 468 SP-A is capable of delivering great mulching performance effortlessly. Mowing in areas with longer grass is also possible thanks to the side discharge function. Simply open the chute on the side of the deck and grass cuttings will be quickly discarded through it keeping the deck clear for more grass to be cut.
