Hints & Tips
From the inner city pocket handkerchief lawn to the rolling country house ones you need to buy a lawnmower to suit the size of your garden and we are unqquely placed to provide mowers for lawns of all sizes.
So to give you an idea of what is available for your lawn we are suggesting three mowers for small medium and large lawns.
For smaller lawns – that is up to the size of half a tennis court – you can often get away with one of the classic self-propelled mowers.
The Webb H12R Hand-Propelled Cylinder Lawn Mower is the simplest type of mower with a chain drive turning the cutting cylinder from the rear roller.
This type of mower gives an excellent cut and that important striped finish and is easy to use and manoeuvre along edges.
The cutting width is 33 cm and the heights are adjustable from 13 to 23.5 cm. Plus there is an 18 litre grass box.
There is a two year manufacturer’s warranty and delivery is free the next working day. This mower costs £79.95.
Next on our list for the smaller lawn is the Mountfield Princess 34 Electric 4 Wheel Lawnmower.
It has a 34 cm cutting width and is easy to use with a 1300 watt electric motor to power the cutting mechanism and five cutting heights from 25 to 65 mm, so it can deal with a smooth lawn and the rougher edges as well.
It has a 37 litre grass box with a hard top to keep the dust down when it’s dry.
There is a bail arm which cuts power to the blades when released and fold-down handlebars for easy storage.
We are Mountfield’s official on-line supplier and this enables us to bring you this mower for £89, £10 less than the manufacturer’s recommended price.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a 12 month maker’s warranty.
Now if you’re looking for a patrol lawnmower for a small lawn then the Sanli LS40 Petrol Push Lawnmower certainly fits the bill.
With a 40 cm cutting width it is light and easy to use with a 4-stroke engine (so no mixing oil and fuel) and is very keenly priced for such a machine.
The deck is hard-wearing polypropylene and is designed to encourage airflow which leads to better grass collection and less clogging.
The cutting width is 40 cm and the grass box can hold 55 litres. There are three cutting heights from 32 to 65 cm.
The manufacturer’s recommended price for this machine is £189 but we have it for sale for £129. Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Now we move on the mowers for the medium sized lawn and by this we mean lawns up to and a little bit bigger than a tennis court.
One that you should certainly consider is the Einhell BG-PM 46 S Self-Propelled 4-Wheeled Petrol Lawnmower.
German engineered, this is a robust mower with a steel deck which is powder coated for a longer life and is self-propelled.
A reliable easy to start 3.75 hp engine provides the power, and a generous cutting width of 46 cm.
Cutting heights are easily adjusted in range from 32 to 70 mm and there is a good sized 60 litre grass box which collapses for easy storage.
Our price is just £219.95, a full £100 off the manufacturer’s recommended price. Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Mowdirect are the sole distributors in this country of products from the Italain manufacturer Oleo-Mac and that enables us to bring you special offers and prices on these superbly engineered machines.
The Oleo-Mac G48-TE Self-Propelled Electric Lawn Mower is currently on special offer.
Self propulsion on electrically powered mowers is very unusual and this model has a steel deck with an 1800 Watt motor. Cutting width is 46 cm and there is a 60 litre grass box and there is a mulching blade to pack in the cuttings and reduce the time spent emptying the grass box.
Cutting heights range from 28 to 75 mm.
This mower has a three year manufacturer’s warranty and comes with free next working day delivery.
Our price is £259 – you would usually expect to £326.81 for this machine.
Our third choice for a medium sized lawn is another from Sanli – the LSPR42 Power-Driven Rear-Roller Rotary Lawn Mower.
The rear roller is the only way to achieve the much desired striped lawn which typifies the British lawn.
There is a 135 cc Sanli engine which is very clean in running and uses remarkable little fuel.
It is particularly useful when it comes to dealing with rougher areas and has a polypropylene deck. There are seven cutting heights from 21 to 77 mm controlled by just one lever and the 60 litre grass box has been designed to minimise clogging.
And the cutting width is 43 cm.
At just £299,there is a full £100 off this mower. Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Now we have three mowers for the larger lawn, those up to half the size of a football pitch.
And we start with another on special offer, the Victus VSS53-K60 Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower.
Strong and reliable this mower has a 196 cc engine which is engineered to give high power levels at low engine speed.
It can handle rougher areas with ease as it has large ball bearing mounted wheels and the cutting height can be adjusted from 28 to 75 mm by a single lever.
There is a 60 litre grass box and is fitted with a mulching blade so it can pack even more in it.
This mower has a manufacturer’s recommended price of £399 but we have it on special offer for just £249.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Another mower for the larger lawn at a special price is the Einhell BG-PM 51SHW 4-in-1 Hi-wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower.
This mower is exclusive to us and has a 166 cc easy to start engine and a generous 51 cm cutting width.
It has a 70 litre grass box and the design on the deck means that it will maximise grass collection when it is wet as well as dry.
Plus there are four options of dealing with the cuttings – either discharged at the back or side or mulched and returned to the lawn or collected in the box.
For a neater cut there is a grass comb at the front to smooth the lawn before it is cut.
High ball bearing mounted wheels, a steel deck and powder coated paint finish combine to make this an excellent mower.
Normally you would pay £479.95 for this machine but we have it for £319.95.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year manufacturer’s guarantee.
And the last of our three for the larger lawn is the Efco AR53-TK Professional Self-propelled Lawnmower with aluminium deck.
Often the choice of professional gardeners, this is a real hard working machine with its aluminium cutting deck giving light weight and great strength.
There are three ways of dealing with the clippings – mulching, collecting or discharge at the back so it can deal with a range of grass cutting tasks.
The machine has been designed to cope with uneven ground and is powered by a 196 cc engine which is smooth in running and uses little fuel.
Another added advantage is that cutting heights can be adjusted by a knob – there are no pre-set heights.
There is a 51 cm cutting width so it is ideal for larger lawns.
Our price for this mower is £399 and that’s £300 less than the manufacturer’s recommended price.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
