Hints & Tips
The recent very heavy rains have left many of us wondering if we will ever be able to get out and cut the grass again as it grows ever longer and stays saturated.
There are lawnmowers which can happily tackle wet grass – don’t worry, they’re equally at home should the sun ever condescend to shine again.
These three come from German manufacturer Einhell, and the first is the Einhell GC-PM 47 SHW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower
New for this season and exclusive to MowDirect this one has a 47 cm cut and importantly for dealing with wet grass it has four ways of dealing with the clippings – either discharged to the back or side, collected in the grass box or mulched and returned to the lawn.
There is a grass full indicator to tell you when the box is full.
Large wheels make it easy to manoeuvre in the wet. And there is a powder coated steel deck to give a longer life to this mower.
This one costs £279.95, with a two-year guarantee and free delivery within 2-3 working days.
Another from Einhell is their
SHW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower
This one has a 173 cc engine and 21 in cutting width making it ideal for larger lawns and areas of rougher grass and it will happily tackle paddocks and orchards and well as smooth lawns.
Again it has four options for dealing with grass clippings and is the answer to keeping lawns and grassy areas in check in this appalling weather.
When you get to the lawns, there is a lawn comb at the front which gives a better finish.
All four wheels are ball-bearing mounted; plus there is a simple way of adjusting the cutting height.
This mower costs £319.95, saving £180 on the list price. There is a two-year manufacturer’s guarantee and it comes with free 2-3 working days delivery.
And the third you should consider for dealing with wet grass is the Oleo-Mac G53-VK AllRoad Plus-4 Lawn Mower with Variable Speed Drive
There is a powerful Emak engine which will start very easily.
This mower lets you cut the grass at exactly the speed you want and helps particularly when you have large areas to cut as you can slow down around obstacles and on slopes and speed up on the flat.
It too has a choice of four ways of dealing with the clippings, very important for when it’s wet or the grass is overlong.
Soft grip handles foldable add to the ease with which this machine can be used.
There is free next working day delivery, a massive FIVE-YEAR manufacturer’s guarantee and the price is only £499.95 a saving of £100 on the RRP.
