Hints & Tips
Lawn tractors are becoming more popular as we prefer to spend our leisure time doing things other than cutting the lawn.
And a lawn tractor which can cut large areas quickly has loads of other uses in the garden when teamed with a trailer.
German company Al-Ko manufactures brilliantly reliable garden tractors and with each one purchased we are giving away a free trailer worth £199.
So carting fertiliser in the spring and wood in winter is much easier and suddenly the garden tractor becomes a vital piece of gardening equipment, working for you all year round and adding value.
For lawns around 6000m2, or around an acre and a half, the Al-Ko T16-92HD Special Edition Lawn Tractor is the one to consider with a twin-cylinder Briggs & Stratton engine and a grass box which holds 220 litres of clippings.
This grass box can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat.
It has a clever Hi-Lift blade to increase the air flow under the cutting deck and provide efficient collection of grass – even when it’s wet.
There are six cutting heights and a cutting width of 92cm and two small wheels at the front of the cutting deck closely follow the contours of the lawn without scalping it.
When you’re finished, just attach a garden hose and run the blades briefly to clean it.
It costs £2299, a saving to you of £400 on the recommended price and it has a five-year warranty. The steel tipping trailer worth £199 is FREE as is the towing hitch, worth £49.
If you order it by 3pm we can deliver it to you the following day, even on Saturday if you order by 3pm on Friday.
Our Premium Delivery Service – with your tractor delivered assembled, tested, tuned, cleaned and ready to go is TOTALLY FREE and within two to three working days and you can see customer reviews here.
For still larger lawns, say up to 8000m2, you will ideally need a lawn tractor with a wider cut and this one could well sit the bill.
The AL-KO T16-102HD Edition Lawn Tractor has a 656cc Briggs & Stratton engine and a 102cm cutting width and a bigger grass box as well, holding 300 litres. And it can be emptied from the driver’s seat.
Transmission is hydrostatic giving very precise speed control and there are six cutting heights.
There is a steel front bumper – just in case – and headlights to keep you working when it gets murky.
This one costs £2499, so you will save £500 on the RRP and again there is a FREE steel tipping trailer and FREE tow hitch worth nearly £250.
Order by 3pm and for a small extra sum you can have it the next working day – even on a Saturday. Our – assembled, tested, tuned, cleaned and ready-to-go Premium Delivery Service will deliver your tractor within two to three working days and is FREE
There is a five-year warranty on this lawn tractor. One previous purchaser said ‘Compared to other makes this won hands down and I haven’t been disappointed.’
