Hints & Tips
As the nation struggles back to work with tender heads and bulging waistlines there’s no better way to get back into the swing of everyday life than tackling the vegetable plot.
With mild weather and little immediate prospect of snow or frost tilling the soil will ensure it is in good condition for when you plant the first seeds, so here are some great garden cultivators and tillers from our clearance sale to set you on your way.
First is our own great little MD Micro Tiller which will dig down to a depth of 20 cm but is small enough to let you tackle the flower beds as well.
It is very light and easy to use with chopper handlebars and a 42 cc engine and its revolving tines are designed for all all types of ground even compacted soils and clay.
Buy one of these and you will find a queue of people waiting to borrow it so its has been designed to fit into the boot of a car with folding down handlebars.
The recommended price for this great little machine is £249 but we had it for sale for £169.95.
But now in our sale it is just £149.95. And it has a two year maker’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
Next in our sale is one from German engineering company Einhell.
Their BG-MT 3336 Petrol Mini-Tiller has four four bladed rotating tillers and will dig down to a depth of 23 cm. and this is adjusted using a brake skid.
The working width of this tiller is 36 cm just right for working between rows of vegetables.
Einhell’s own 4.5 hp engine is easy to start and a deadman’s handle will stop the machine when released, a very valuable safety feature.
The handlebar can also be adjusted to suit the height of the user.
The maker’s recommended price was £389.95 but we have it for sale for £189.95.
A two year manufacturer’s guarantee and free next working day delivery are included in the price.
Another of our own brand tillers in our clearance sale is the MD Super Compact Garden Tiller.
This is a stronger and more serious machine designed with the smaller sized vegetable plot or vegetable garden in mind.
Yet it is compact enough to be used for turning the soil in and around shrubberies.
The Briggs & Stratton engine starts easily and is smooth running and the handles can be adjusted to suit the height of the person using it. These handles also fold down for easy storage.
Two transport wheels mean it is easy to move around the garden.
The maker’s recommended price for this model is £359.95, we had it for sale for £259.95 but in our clearance sale it is only £199.95, an excellent price for such a powerful machine.
There is a two year manufacturer’s guarantee and free next working day delivery.
Now another from Einhell, the BG-MT 3360-LD Petrol Tiller / Cultivator, and it is a real bargain as it is the lowest priced machine in its category.
This one is suitable for larger vegetable gardens and allotments and has six cultivator blades and crop protection discs which are really handy for when you are tilling between the rows.
The 163 cc engine is reliable and engineered for a long life and is quiet when fired up.
A front transport wheel mean it is easy to move around and when in use it can be tilted up.
The brake skid is adjustable to suit the tilling depth and there is a deadman’s handle safety device as well to stop the machine careering off should you let go of the handles.
The recommended price is £499.95, we have it for sale for £299.95.
Plus free next working day delivery and a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
And finally a traditional rotavator on special offer, the MD Classic Tiller.
Think of a traditional tiller you see on a larger allotment, and this is it.
It has really strong steel rotors which can dig in to even compacted or clay soils and is fitted with a drive system which allows the machine to gently ease in to the sol rather than bounce along the top, as some machines do.
It is really strongly built with a solid steel chassis and has a 205 cc Briggs & Stratton engine which gives bags of digging power.
The working width is adjustable from 60 cm to 78 cm letting you work between rows and turn over larger areas of land more quickly.
Plus there is an adjustable depth gauge and crop protection discs and a front transport wheel.
This machine costs £349.95, a saving of £180 on the maker’s recommended price, delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
It will pay you to take advantage of the milder weather and get the soil turned over now as when the frosts re-appear this will help break up the soil even more ready for planting.
