Hints & Tips
At long last the temperatures have started rising and if you haven’t yet been out to have a look at the flower beds and lawn you soon will be.
Lawns have started to look a bit fresher as early growth arrives, but remember to keep the cutters on your mowers fairly high for the first couple of cuts.
Once the lawns do start to grow we think that, with the late Spring, they’ll need cutting at least once a week to keep them looking good, especially if Easter is rainy, as it often is!
If you haven’t yet had your mower serviced you may find you will need to wait a bit as mechanics are booked out with work at the moment.
The weeks before and just after Easter are always a busy time for us and this year is busier than ever.
Many of you will consider buying a new mower for the coming gardening year and here at MowDirect we have a wider range than ever.
But exactly how do you get the best lawn mower for your garden?
Basically the answer is simple. If you have a very small pocket handkerchief lawn you will not need any more than a simple hand-push mower with no motor.
We have several brands of hand propelled mowers. The mid range Einhell BG-HM Hand-propelled Cylinder Mower is a good basic model with five cutting blades and adjustable height adjustment and it also has larger wheels making it easier to use around the flower beds.
It costs just £59.95 including VAT, a saving of £40 on the manufacturer’s price.
Electric mowers have come a long way since they were first introduced and there are now sturdy mowers to tackle a wide range of lawns.
For under £100 there is the new entry level mower from Wolf-Garten.
It has superior quality features and is made in Germany. Available now for just £89!
The 1500 Watt motor is tough and durable making this an excellent choice for a medium sized lawn with its 16 inch cutting width and 17m of cable.
The Mowdirect price is just £239, a saving of over £40.
Many people with lawns larger than, say, a tennis court, prefer the greater flexibility that petrol mowers provide and we have what we believe is the biggest range in Britain on our main website.
A good option for a general all-purpose mower is the Mountfield self-propelled S420-PD with a reliable Briggs and Stratton 148 cc motor and 41cm cutting width. It features a steel deck and 60 litre grass collection box.
It’s an ideal self-propelled mower for a medium sized garden and comes in at just £279.
Mountfield’s top of the range model is the M64 PD/ES lawnmower which has an electric start. This has a powerful Mountfield engine and is ideal for tackling both a traditional lawn and for coping with rougher grass around paths and orchards.
Grass can be either discharged at the back or mulched to be fed back onto the lawn to add valuable nutrients.
It has a two year manufacturer’s warranty and a 20 year guarantee on the aluminium deck. MowDirect’s special offer price is just £589!
And remember, all petrol Mountfield mowers benefit from a pre-delivery inspection and the maker’s wide dealer network.
MowDirect has a unique agreement with German manufacture Einhell which means we can bring you top products at unbeatable prices.
Their BG-PM 46 self-propelled mower is just £199.95, an amazing price for a German-engineered self-propelled machine.
In fact it is so good we have already had to order more!
It is so robust it will last year after year and has a quiet 3.75hp engine. A single lever means the height can be easily adjusted and it is perfect for medium to larger lawns. Fold down handles means it can be easily stored in the shed.
The mower has next working day delivery and a two year guarantee.
These are just a few of our brilliant mower offers. Make sure you keep an eye on our site. As Britain’s biggest on-line retailer of powered garden equipment we are constantly updating our range with new models and special offers.
