Hints & Tips
It’s possible the leaves will stay on the trees a little longer given the later summer we’re having, but don’t count on it.
A few dead leaves are already fluttering down and it will soon be time to start clearing them from lawns and drives.
We have three very special deals on leaf sweepers, blowers and vacs so that you can be prepared when the fall starts in earnest.
And we have been able to secure some very special prices on a number of models to save you pounds.
The little Agri-Fab leaf sweeper which is pushed by hand and sweeps as it goes is just £129, a price you won’t be able to beat anywhere.
It weighs just 30 lbs and has a 200 litre collector. And also it is super efficient – for each turn of the wheel the brush rotates four and a half times. It also has a height adjuster depending on the surface being cleaned.
For a small to medium sized garden this little machine can save hours of back breaking work.
And not only does it sweep leaves from the lawn but it can be used on drives, gravel paths and patios as well.
This has been our best seller for 10 years because of its outstanding value and sheer simplicity.
For the larger gardens you need a leaf vac and we think the Einhell BG-PL 26/1 offers outstanding performance and value for money at just £139.95 including free next day delivery and a two year warranty.
The German engineered machine allows you to switch automatically from blowing to shredding and vacuuming instead of stopping to change tubes. Other machines which can do this are up to half as much again. It also has an inbuilt shredder and a massive 55 litre collection bag.
With these features you can blow leaves into a pile and then with a flick of the switch vacuum up and shred them into the bag.
But as a special offer on this machine there is also a free wheel kit so you can push the machine along on hard surfaces like patios and paths.
And there’s a free mixing bottle and free oil as well.
At this price it represents one of the best value for money leaf vacs we have ever had.
And if you are lucky enough to be the owner of a really large garden or small estate this machine from MTD really fits the bill with its versatility.
The Yardman 3-in-1 shreds, chips and vacs and a special feature is that it has an on-board hose kit incorporated into the design.
The vacuum feature allows you to pick up and shred leaves and twigs or you can use the chipper chute to mulch branches and bigger twigs to a fine mulch.
A blower attachment is also available for £89 with this machine so you can clear paths and drives much more quickly.
This machine, which is also popular with local authorities and contractors, usually costs £805 but our special offer price is just £649.
Don’t forget that these are just three machines from our extensive range on our web site.
