There are some great autumn garden machinery bargain available at the moment and here are three tools which will prove invaluable as the leaves tumble and the grass continues to grow rapidly.
First is the Mitox 260BX Handheld Petrol Blow-Vac, light efficient and just the job for keeping your garden leaf free.
For as machine which produces a nearly 260 km an hour blast of air it is very light, weighing just 4.7kg.
A 27.6cc engine provides the power to blast the leaves into a pile and it is designed so that you can get to the edges of patios and around drive edges with ease.
It is low on vibration levels and has a cruise control, handy when blowing leaves from large areas. It also has an off-set blower tube making it easier to use.
“I have dealt with MowDirect before and was pleased then so went for them again. This is a great blower, light and very powerful. Delivery was next day, no problems. Customer service is excellent too.” That’s the view of a customer who bought the machine.
It has a five-year warranty, costs £179, £20 off the recommended price and has FREE next working day delivery.
This is also a great of year to work on the lawn to get rid of the garbage like dead grass, moss and unwanted weeds which have accumulated over the summer and this best seller, the Einhell GC-SC 2240P Petrol Lawn Scarifier is a tried and trusted machine.
Designed in Germany and suitable for lawns up to 1000m2 it has a 118cc engine to power 18-blades which tease out the rubbish. Once this is removed the lawn ca breathe again and absorb moisture and nutrients and produce new growth.
It has a 45-litre catcher but you’re best to leave this off if you’ve not scarified for a while and rake up the debris.
It has six height settings and a 40cm working width and is easy to guide with its large wheels with deep tread.
It costs £279.95, £220 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty with free next working day delivery and FREE oil.

The Lawnflite 21 SPW-ES 4-in-1 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower with Electric Start is exclusive to MowDirect and has a 173cc engine.
