As announced by the company, all of the highest bid revenue generated by the sale of this special edition mower will help the Duke of Edinburgh’s The Living Legacy Fund give a million more young people the life-changing opportunity to achieve a DofE Award.

The DofE Award, established in 1956, has for decades been helping young British peoplebuild their self-belief, confidence, and skills to be ready to overcome anything life throws their way. As a proud British company making cylinder mowers since 1965, and as the proud holder of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise-International Trade, this is something Allett is very passionate about.

The Stirling range of expert mowers is designed for the home lawn connoisseur with medium to large lawns. Allett mowers, known for their strong stripes and precision cutting, feature the Allett cartridge system which gives professional level cultivation and clean-up for lawn thatch control, autumn renovations and weed control.

The highest auction bid was to receive the unique Jubilee Allett Stirling 51, which is powered by the EGO 56V battery system. The rear roller drive is controlled by the handlebar mounted speed control, which can be adjusted on the move to select the optimum forward speed for the best results.

The mowing and cultivation cartridges are driven by the separate, powerful ‘ProDrive’ motor to cultivate the lawn deeper, faster and with great precision, unprecedented control and new levels of comfort. Allett’s height adjustment of cut selection allows for micro adjustments with a clear scale of the height selected.

The online auction began with a starting bid of a minimum £1000.00 and entrants had just 3 days to bid in £50.00 increments. Bidding for the Jubilee Edition Stirling 51 closed at 11.59pm BST on 5th June 2022 and the winning bidder was announced on 6th June on the company’s website and social media accounts.

From all of us at TOOLKiT, we would like to join Allett in congratulating Mr. Ron Henry from the USA for placing the highest bid on the Jubilee Special Edition lawn mower in the value of £4400, and thus allowing the Duke of Edinburgh’s Living Legacy Fund to continue changing the lives of British youth.
