Hints & Tips
Mowing time is upon us and the grass is growing under our feet, over our feet and everywhere else. We have a fabulous array of machines for you in our Spring collection and, rather like the old wedding tradition; we can offer “something old, something new something cordless and something blue.” Yes I know, it’s supposed to be something borrowed, but we don’t borrow lawn mowers around here, or lend them to the neighbours so I had to change it.
So without further ado, well, maybe a tiny bit of ado, here are my Great 8 mowers. A hand-picked collection of lawn mowers for you to consider, all at great prices and all with FREE delivery and our famed after sales service.
‘…excellent service and communication, easy to get in touch, excellent products, and I would recommend mowdirect.co.uk 100%! ‘ N. Meerman. Trustpilot March 2019.
First up, is something new. The Herkules LMG53SHL-C 4-in-1 Variable-Speed Lawnmower is as powerful as its demi-god namesake and if one of the labours of Hercules had been efficient and high performance mowing at an extremely low price, he’d have got it done very quickly indeed.
The Herkules is made for larger lawns and is very well featured, with a variable-speed drive, single-lever height of cut adjustment, grass bag full indicator and 4-in-1 mowing capability (bagging, mulching and both rear and side discharge). Soft ergonomic handles, a carry handle and a deck-wash port contribute to comfortable and hassle-free use.
Exclusive to MowDirect in the UK, all this comes to you at the amazing price of £349 with FREE NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY and a 2-year warranty.
Next on my shopping list is an old favourite. This ‘something old’ is not really old, (we don’t sell second-hand mowers) but the model has been around long enough to become a firm favourite with customers.
The Einhell GC-PM 46/2 SHW-E Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower with Electric Key Start is a very well appointed and efficient machine that benefits from tried and tested German engineering.
A generously sized large fuel tank gives you plenty of working time and an equally generous grass collector gives you 70 litres of clipping space.
The rear wheels are larger for positive grip and the height adjustable handlebars offer convenience and comfort. The 46cm cutting width is perfect for lawns of around 1200m2 in size.
Our customers love this machine, saying things like… ‘First Class Product’, ‘…excellent value for money’, ‘super quality machine at a great price’
It costs a remarkably reasonable £299.95 a massive £200 below the recommended price and with a two-year warranty and FREE NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY.
And after these two petrol powered marvels, let’s take a look at something cordless. The premium Redback E148CV Self-Propelled Cordless Lawnmower is as sharp and smart as it looks and offers all the advantages of cheap to run, no noise, no vibration, fast charging and long-running Li-ion batteries.
New and Exclusive to MowDirect and developed for British gardens it features a large 48cm cutting width, handles that fold for easy storage, single-lever height adjustment and will run for nearly an hour without recharging.
The price of this high-quality cordless mower, just £499.99 includes both a fast charging battery and charger, as well as an unusually long 3-year warranty for peace of mind. And of course, delivery is FREE the next working day.
And now for something blue. Hyundai is a name known by anyone that appreciates quality build and engineering and the robust, versatile and superbly crafted Hyundai HY-M510SPE is no exception to that rule. A 4-in-1 machine with variable speed for control and efficient and an electric start, this mower shows just why Hyundai machines have such a good reputation.
A 51cm cutting width ensures great coverage and faster completion of your mowing tasks and the model has all the bells and whistles that make mowing easier, more productive and more comfortable, including single lever, six position height of cut, a deck wash port for easy cleaning, a grass bag full indicator, a 70-litre hard-top fabric grass-collector and even twin cup-holders so you can re-hydrate as you mow.
All this comes to you at the surprisingly low price of £399.99 with a 3-year warranty and FREE next working day delivery.
Mountfield is a name everyone who knows mowers will be familiar with. One of the UK’s favourite brands, known for quality, value and high performance, Mountfield is the best selling brand of petrol lawnmowers in the UK.
Subsequently, it’s no surprise that the Mountfield HP454 Petrol Rotary Hand-Propelled Lawnmower is one of our best selling superstars, with nearly 100 4.5/5-star reviews.
140cc four-stroke air-cooled OHV engine powers this little red beauty, and its 45cm width-of-cut ensures effective coverage of lawns (up to 800m2 approx’). It features foldable handlebars for simple storage, a fabric grass bag for optimum airflow single lever height of cut from 20mm up to 70mm.
This what a few of our customers think…‘First class’, ‘Great product at a genuine bargain price.’, ‘good quality’, ‘very happy’, ‘super mower’, fantastic’, should have bought one years ago’.
Surprising then that this little powerhouse costs just £199, (a saving of £100 on the RRP). Plus FREE next working delivery and a 2-year warranty.
Now, here are two excellent machines from another new kid on the block. Racing. New, exclusive to MowDirect but very smart and well-made and already winning favourable reviews…
‘The mower is good value, powerful, well made…’, ‘…a great piece of kit would definitely buy one again.’, ‘…impressed for the cost.’
The Racing 4640PL-A Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is powered by a relatively quiet but punchy 135cc OHV, (3.2hp) air-cooled four-stroke engine. It has a seven-stage cutting height range (single-lever operated) and a good cutting width of 46cm with a large 50-litre grass catcher.
If you have a look at this snappy and amazingly low priced mower on our siteyou will see this line in the product write up. ‘A MowDirect-exclusive offering best-in-class build-quality at an amazing price!’ I repeat this because it is accurate and worth saying again. I mean, Just £199 for a machine of this quality and features is a genuine bargain.
The other thoroughbred in the Racing stable is the impressive Racing 5070T 4-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Lawnmower.
Sleek, black and brimming with advanced quality features and top-notch build quality, it is powered by a super fuel-efficient OHV engine, which works in conjunction with a large capacity (1.2 litre) fuel tank for longer running time.
A steel cutting deck, 65-litre grass collector, deck wash port, high rear wheels, the list of features is impressive, especially when you see the price tag. Just £269.95 for a machine of this class is pretty unusual and even more so when you take into account the inclusion of FREE next working day delivery.
And finally, here is another old favourite that has stood the test of time and still cuts it with all the big boys. The Masport RRSP-22H Self-propelled Rear-Roller Lawn Mower is sturdy and strong (the deck is cast from a single sheet of aluminium) and has a 54cm cutting width for use on large lawns.
The rear-roller delivers that smooth striped effect that is so loved by British lawn enthusiasts and the deck features Masport’s Quick-Cut twin-blade system, for a 15-per cent reduction in mowing time as well as an ‘aero’ system for optimum grass collection.
Powering this quality machine is a quality engine. The Honda brand needs no introduction and the top-rate Honda engine in this mower is a very high spec, fuel-efficient, 160cc, GCV160 producing 4.4hp (3.3kw).
This premium quality mower costs just £849.00, £100 lower than the RRP with a 2-year warranty and FREE NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY.
