Hints & Tips
Large lawns can look their best in the autumn as long as you don’t cut them too short and here are a couple of machines to give them a perfect, lush finish.
Don’t be tempted to wait too long before each cut as lawns can soon become scruffy if left too long and look as if they need a herd of sheep to cut them down rather than a mower.
If you lawn is too big for a wide-cut mower but a bit too small for a lawn tractor then this little ride-on is just the trick.
Designed to get through narrow gates and along small paths, the Mountfield 827M Compact Lawn Rider with a 66cm cutting width is just the job.
With Mountfield’s own 224cc engine started with a key has four forward and one revers gears and has cutting heights from 30mm to 80mm.
The grass box takes 150 litres of clippings and can be emptied from the driver’s seat.
And it is a very simple machine to drive with easy-to-use controls.
It costs £1299, £100 off the maker’s recommended price and, as part of a very special offer, we deliver it FREE the next working day to England and Wales and a day or two longer to Scotland. It has a two-year warranty and comes with FREE oil. It comes with our Premium Delivery Service as standard, so arrives assembled, tested, tuned, cleaned and ready to go
“Great Little Mower” was a recent review and you can see others here.
That last machine was for large lawns and this one can tackle much larger ones – up to 8000m2.
Powered by a 656cc Briggs & Stratton twin cylinder engine, the AL-KO T16-102HD Edition Lawn Tractor has excellent fuel economy and low emission figures with very low vibration levels and with hydrostatic transmission drives much like an automatic car.
And a high-backed seat means you can cut large areas without becoming unduly tired.
This has loads of power so you can attach all manner of labour-saving equipment – a leaf sweeper is especially useful at this time of year.
There are six cutting heights and a cutting width of 102cm and the giant grass box can be emptied from the driver’s seat.
Currently you receive a free steel tipping trailer worth £199 and a free two hitch worth another £49.
Delivery is FREE within 2-3 Working days to England and Scotland with next day and Saturday delivery available for a small fee if ordered by 3pm. All this includes our Premium Delivery Service.
It costs £2499, £500 off the recommended price and has a five year warranty. “Excellent at an Affordable Price” was one customer’s comment.
