Hints & Tips
Half-term holiday and Hallowe’en mean we are now well in to autumn with leaves and apples a-tumbling from trees.
This is, traditionally, cider-making time when apples are gathered from trees and from the ground and crushed before being pressed.
Then, with just a little sugar and a good deal of patience the wonder of nature and science work their magic so that next Spring we can sample the first golden nectar from the barrel.
But be warned, rough country cider can be a lethal brew, almost as strong as spirits.
This used to be the time that mowers were put away for the winter. But not anymore as the lawns continue to grow strongly and could well need trimming right through the year.
Have a look at these two mowers from our great autumn garden machinery deals if you think you need a n new mower to tackle the thicker dew-soaked grass of autumn.
The Oleo-Mac G48-TK Comfort-Plus Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower is from Italy’s leading garden machinery company and exclusive to MowDirect. And it’s currently a great bargain and one of our highly rated superstars.
The mower is made for medium-sized lawns with an EMAK engine to power it along and drive the blades and it is very mean on fuel and emissions.
The cutting width is 46cm and it has cutting heights from 28mm to 75mm. The grass box holds 60 litres.
“Great machine at a competitive price“, “…excellent bit of kit” and “5-Star Product” are three of the host of great reviews for this mower.
This is a very solid mower and a favourite with our customers with a string of favourable reviews which you can see here.
It has a five-year warranty and costs just £269.95, £130 off the recommended price with FREE delivery the next working day and includes FREE oil.
Steering lawnmowers can be a bit difficult at this time of year with damp grass but this one makes navigation around even the tightest paths and flower beds a piece of cake.
From a leading European maker of garden machinery, the Einhell LE-PM 51S HWT Comfort-Turn Lawnmower lets you whizz around garden obstacles and trees thanks to its front castor wheel.
It has eight cutting heights and a cutting width of 51cm and is powered along by Einhell’s 196cc engine.
As well as collecting the cut grass in the 70-litre grass box, it can be discharged to the back and side when cutting small paddocks or orchards.
There is also a mulch plug but make sure the lawn is dry before you fit this.
“Delighted with this mower,” and ‘Very well built and would be happy to recommend it and would buy it again, also very well priced compared to any other mower with this width of cut,” are a couple of customers’ comments.
It costs £299, an amazing £200 off the recommended price and has a two year warranty with FREE next working day delivery and FREE oil.
