I was a little surprised when I spotted this Facebook advertisement last night. I was checking Facebook just one last time before heading into the land of nod and noticed the Alroh ad in the sidebar. Interesting.
I’m sure that they’re wonderful mowers, and I’d love to have one to replace the old clunker in our shed, but I have my reservations about what their advertisement suggests.
Alroh Mowers have been around for over 60 years and they’re a fine local product.
The first Alroh was designed and built by Alan Robert Hair in Perth, Western Australia back in 1951.
It was boom time in Perth, and the growing population and number of home-owners had led to a growing trend for carefully and lovingly tended back lawns.
Hair’s strong durable mower was built to be perfectly suited to Australian conditions.
The problem I have is the claim the Facebook ad makes of a ‘surgical cut’. Fortunately I’ve never had to wear one of those embarrassing hospital gowns and face any kind of surgery, but if I’m ever to end up on the operating table I don’t think I’d be keen on Dr Kildare wandering in with his Alroh.
We talk about people ‘going under the knife’ but how much more frightening would that be if you were to ‘go under the mower’?
I’d be very happy to have an Alroh for a quality, precision cut for my lawn, but I think I’ll pass on the surgical cut.If you enjoyed this post please use the buttons above to share.
