If you have a large garden or smallholding you need an all-purpose machine which you can use for a variety of jobs through the year and this is where a two-wheeled tractor really comes into its own.
The basic two-wheeled tractor has a huge number of uses and for the smallholder or market gardener can prove the most valuable piece of garden machinery he or she possesses.
There is a reliable Honda engine and you can lock the drive on both wheels for when the ground is difficult and you need more purchase.
The attachments can be easily fitted with recourse to the tool box, a real time-saver.
There are four forward and three reverse gears for when the machine is used with attachments at the back and three forward and three reverse for front mounted attachments.
The handlebars can be adjusted through 180 degrees depending on whether the attachments are on the front or the back of the machine.
The range of attachments includes two tillers, a scythe, flail mower, two mulching mowers, a reversible plough and single furrow plough. There is even a snow plough.
This great little machine costs £1999 compared with the manufacturer’s recommended price of £2564.
Delivery is free to the UK mainland.
