Hints & Tips
Most of us made it through January without too much snow and ice although it was pretty cold.
And now February is here the vegetable plots and allotments need attention – don’t forget that you can plant some varieties of lettuce this month.
To make sure you are ahead of the game when the main planting season starts it’s time to get digging or tilling.
It’s great exercise, digging along the rows, pausing to fork in manure every so often.
But backs often start to twinge, especially if you’re digging heavy, clay-rich ground and a much easier way of turning the soil is to treat yourself to a tiller.
Do this and you’ll probably find you’ve a load of friends you didn’t know you had as it’s one of the most borrowed pieces of garden equipment.
The Einhell BG-MT 3360-LD Petrol Tiller / Cultivator is exclusive to MowDirect and the lowest priced in its class.
With a 163cc engine it has six cultivator blades 26cm in diameter and 60cm across and there are six crop protector discs in the package so you can till between the rows without damaging growing plants.
The machine is designed with a front transport wheel to make it easy to move around – this wheel tilts up and out of the way when the machine is in use.
A brake skid can be adjusted to vary the depth and thee handles can be adjusted to suit the user.
It also has a deadman’s handle which cuts the engine when released, useful if you should lose control.
It is currently on special offer for £299.95, a full £200 saving on the recommended price.
We deliver it FREE with a two-year warranty the next working day after we have received your order.
These pages have an extensive list of tillers and if you’re not sure which machine is best for you please give our friendly team a ring on 03454 588905.
