Hints & Tips
There are gardening bargains galore in our summer sale, so if your old mower or hedgetrimmer is nearing its end or if your garden tractor is running out of puff we have the ideal replacement at a great price.
For a full list of the products in our sale see these pages, but to give you an edited highlights here are ten top buys from our sale page.
First is one of the stars of the summer so far as it offers such good value for money.
The Top MowMaster 43PD 3-in-1 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower has loads of top features.
First, you can discharge the clippings at the back of the machine – useful when cutting rougher areas – as well as mulching them and collecting in the 40 litre grass box.
Then it has larger rear wheels which make it easier to steer and handle uneven ground. And it has five cutting heights from 25mm to 70mm.
The 123cc engine has plenty of power to cope with sloping lawns and the cutting width of 43 cm means it can tackle lawns around 600m2.
Other features include an indicator to show when the grass box needs emptying and a wash port to make it easy to clean before you put it away – just attach a garden hose and run the engine for a while to clean out all the compacted clippings under the cutting deck.
It costs £179, £70 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty. Next working day delivery is FREE.
We helped to develop this next mower, taking advantage of the latest battery technology to give a mower light and easy to use while being as effective as many petrol-powered machines.
The Redback E142Q-2Ah Cordless Lawnmower is much more pleasant to use than a petrol-powered one as it has fewer vibrations and no engine fumes.
It relies on a 40V battery which retains its charge when not in use and re-charges very quickly.
It has five cutting heights from 25mm to 70mm and an adjustable handlebar with three settings.
It is very easy to steer around garden obstacles like benches and trees and has a grass box which holds 40 litres with an indicator to show when it is full.
A charger and battery are supplied and this battery will fit other equipment in the Redback range.
This mower costs £249, £150 saving on the recommended price in our summer sale and has a three-year warranty.
Delivery the next working day is FREE.
Now comes another exclusive mower, this one benefiting from German design and engineering.
The Einhell GE-PM 53 VS-HW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower (with Variable Speed) has five ways of dealing with the clippings.
You can either collect them in the 80-litre grass box or mulch them, when the cut grass is cut down into tiny pieces the size of tea leaves before being allowed to fall back to the lawn where they rot away.
You have three choices where the appearance is not so important, either discharging to the back or side or simply allowing them to fall back under the mower.
The engine is from Briggs & Stratton, 150cc, very reliable and an easy starter.
This mower has a special blade designed to force each blade of grass to the upright position before it is cut, leading to a much more even finish.
With its 53cm cutting width it is recommended for lawns around 1500m2.
It has adjustable handlebars and a special tool for cleaning it after use.
One recent purchaser commented ‘Performance is amazingly good.’ Other reviews are here.
The mower costs £379.95, a substantial reduction on the recommended price of £599.95.
There is a two-year warranty and FREE next working day delivery plus FREE oil.
Now, a couple of machines from Redback to deal with the hedges which seem to have grown quickly in the dry weather.
The Redback E522DQ-2Ah Cordless Hedgetrimmer is much lighter than petrol-powered machines and yet delivers an excellent cut comparable with a petrol-powered machine.
It has a 40V lithium-ion battery with the cells from a world-leading manufacturer and has 56cm dual-reciprocating blades, double-sided for a neat fast cut.
The rear handle rotates making it easier to cut hedge sides and odd shapes and is very useful for left-handers.
A defector shifts to twigs away as you work, but this can be removed if you prefer to working without it.
It costs £169 a massive £117 saving compared with the recommended price of £286, and comes with a battery and charger and a battery belt to keep the weight of the machine down.
Delivered for FREE, It has a three-year warranty.
Hedge tops always pose a problem and this machine from the same company is light and easy to use and very effective.
The Redback E920DQ-2Ah Cordless Pole-Hedgetrimmer (Special Offer) uses a similar 40V battery with all the advantages of lithium-ion and has two 52cm blades, dual sided and double reciprocating.
It weighs only 3.5kg and has a shoulder harness to make it more comfortable to use for long periods.
It costs £199, a huge reduction compared with the maker’s recommended price of £306 and is delivered free the next working day with a three-year warranty.
Included in the price is the battery, charger and a power belt.
And the same company has the answer when it comes to trimming lawn edges.
The Redback E312DQ-2Ah Cordless Grass-Trimmer has a 2Ah lithium-ion battery, but is above all light and easy to use.
It is fitted with a tilting and pivoting cutting head mounted on an aluminium shaft which ca be adjusted to suit the operator’s height.
More line can be fed out simply by bumping the head on the ground and it has a plant protector.
With the trimmer are a battery, charger and a power belt, making this machine an excellent buy at £179 compared with the recommended price of £276.
Delivered FREE the next working day it has a three-year warranty.
It you have areas of the garden where weeds and brambles have taken over, then you need a powerful brushcutter to hack away to debris.
And this machine, the Einhell GE-BC 33 AS Low-Vibration Brushcutter + Free Kit is just the job.
Engineered in Germany it has very low vibration levels normally only found on much more expensive brushcutters.
A 36.2cc engine gives the power and it starts very easily and a metal blade with three sharp deliver the cutting performance demanded by keen gardeners.
It also has a strimming head with automatic line feed for the lawn edges and for working close to walls and sheds. More line can be fed out by simply bumping it on the ground.

We are the country’s leading retailer of ride-ons and lawns and garden tractors and here are three great bargains in our summer sale.

The Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor has an 48cm cutting width with twin blades for a smooth finish.
It has seven cutting heights from 25mm to 80mm and is a great collector of even wet grass thanks to the airflow produced by the twin blades under the cutting deck.
And when the grass box is full it emits a loud bleep to tell you it needs emptying.
Powering it along is Mountfield’s own 452cc engine, designed to give a longer working life with advanced lubrication.
It has five forward and one reverse gears and a six litre fuel tank and is very comfortable to drive with a high-back and sprung seat which is adjustable. And the grass box can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat.

The Al-Ko T16-92HD Special Edition Lawn Tractor has been designed for lawns around 6000m2 and is powered by a Briggs & Stratton twin cylinder 656cc engine.
A special Hi-Lift blade creates a powerful current in the cutting deck and makes it a great collector of wet grass – there is a 220-litre grass box which can be emptied from the driver’s seat.

And finally a mower made to tackle large gardens and areas of parkland.
