Hints & Tips
Whether it’s small or large, lawns look their best when left with a perfect stripe and this look is only possible with a mower with a rear roller.
So here are five top mowers to give that quintessentially English finish and make you the envy of the neighbourhood.
The first is the Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower , designed and made in Britain to give the finish you want right down to a very short 13 mm cut.
Fins at the front of the machine smooth the grass before it is cut and there are seven cutting heights.
A Briggs & Stratton 158 cc engine gives the power and the aluminium deck has a plastic lining underneath to enhance grass collection and keep the noise down. The engine has a friction disc which stops the crank from bending if you hit something solid.
The grass box can take 55 litres and the cutting width is 41 cm making it suitable for medium sized to larger lawns.
We have it for sale for £369.95 compared with the maker’s recommended price of £449.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a three year maker’s warranty.
The second is the Sanli LSPR48 Power-Driven Rear Roller Rotary Lawn Mower, currently on special offer and with a useful free gift.
This has loads of top spec features, well made and capable of dealing with natural undulations and well as billiard table lawns.
The 163 cc engine uses little fuel and has low emissions and the deck is polymer making the machine comparatively light in weight.
Cutting heights are from a very low 12 mm to 65 mm and the width is 48 cm.
The grass box can take an impressive 70 litres and folds down for easy storage.
This one costs £424.95, £75 less than the maker’s recommended price.
There is a two year manufacturer’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
Plus, absolutely free, there is a ten litre jerry can.
Now one from one of the country’s favourite brands.
The Mountfield SP465R Power Driven Rear-Roller Lawnmower has a full width rear roller and is powered by a 4.5 Honda engine for a long life and reliable starting.
This machine is suitable for medium to large sized lawns with a 46 cm cutting width and a 55 litre grass box.
The deck is powder coated and made of pressed steel and cutting heights vary from 20 mm to 70 mm.
It has been designed to be easy to drive close to lawn edges and around obstacles and also has a deadman’s handle as a useful safety device.
It costs £499, the maker’s recommended retail price is £539.
There is a two year maker’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
The Masport Rotarola RRSP-22 Rear-Roller Self-Propelled Lawn Mower comes from a New Zealand manufacturer with a reputation for top quality mowers.
It has a cutting width of 22 inches and can get right down to a height of just 10 mm.
This can take on larger lawns and will give an excellent striped finish.
A Briggs & Stratton 190 cc engine starts easily and uses little fuel and the cutting deck, combined with a full width exit chute, means it will also deal with wet grass.
The deck is made from cast aluminium built for a long life and has ball bearing mounted wheels.
A 70 litre grass box will mean fewer trips to the compost heap.
You can save £100 on the recommended price as this mower is only £699. There is a three year maker’s guarantee and free next working day delivery.
And finally, another on special offer from an acknowledged world leading engineering company.
The Honda HRX476QXE Self-Propelled Rear-Roller Lawnmower is a really top notch machine with a 5.5 hp engine easy to start and ultra reliable.
It has been designed so you can stop the blades turning without turning off the engine, useful for when crossing hard surfaces or gravel paths.
The grass box holds a massive 73 litres and cutting heights are from 14 to 54 mm and the cutting deck is designed to maximise collecting the clippings and packing them in.
This mower costs £835 compared with the maker’s recommended retail price of £985.
There is a seven year manufacturer’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
