Hints & Tips
Holidays are costing a fortune what with kids demanding ice cream and older members of the family who should know better spending oodles of spondulix on days out and visits to watering holes.
But you don’t need to spend a fortune on the latest machinery to keep the garden in order thanks to our brilliant summer sale.
There are bargains galore from mowers in all shapes and sizes up to a really large lawn tractor for parks and large gardens at a truly amazing price.
The first is from leading German manufacturing company Einhell.
Their Einhell GH-BC Petrol Brushcutter + Free Kit is a powerful little machine with a 23cm metal blade with three teeth for cutting back overgrowth like brambles and thick banks of nettles.
It also has a nylon trimming head for cutting lawn edges and lighter areas of grass. This automatically spools out more line when needed just by bumping the head on the ground.
The power comes from a 25cc engine which starts quickly and easily.
It costs just £129,95, £70 off the recommended price and is delivered free the next working day with a two-year warranty.
But you also receive a shoulder harness, helmet with faceguard and ear defenders, a fuel mixing bottle and 130 metres of spare line, making the whole package a great bargain.
If you have lawn edges to keep in trim this machine, new and exclusive represents a real alternative to petrol power.
The Redback E312DQ-2Ah Cordless Grass-Trimmer relies on a 2Ah lithium-ion battery which recharges quickly and doesnâ€™t use its power when left unused.
The trimming head tilts to the correct angle and is mounted on an aluminium shaft which is adjustable to suit the user.
It is an easy to use trimmer as it is both light and well balanced and the cutting head has a plant protector so you wonâ€™t trim the flowers in the border. Strong, twisted nylon line can be fed out by bumping the head on the ground.
The battery and charger are included in the price as are a power belt.
It costs £179, compared with the recommended price of £276 and it is delivered free the next working day with a three-year warranty.
