Hints & Tips
A reliable, powerful engine is an important consideration for many gardeners when choosing a lawn mower and an increasing number of people are specifying Honda engines.
So here are three mowers with Honda engines on offer at special prices from top manufacturers made to tackle all sorts of mowing challenges.
First is from an American manufacturer which has been a favourite British brand for years.
The Al-Ko 5250HWS Easy Mow ‘Vari-Speed’ High-Wheeler Petrol Power-Driven Lawnmower has been designed with 7-stage cutting-heights, simply adjusted with a single lever
Cuttings can also be dumped to the side, a useful option when cutting longer grass in orchards and paddocks.
It has Honda’s GCV160 engine, easy to start and quiet when running, and has a cutting width of 51 cm with cutting heights from 30 up to 80 mm.
High wheels are mounted on ball bearings and the drive is to the front wheels.
It costs £499 as against the maker’s recommended price of £699 and has a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
Delivery is free the next working day.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower is from a manufacturer exclusive to MowDirect, and a leading European company.
This one too has four ways of dealing with the clippings, discharged to the side or rear, mulched and returned to the lawn or collected in the 70-litre grass box.
The cutting width is 51 cm and cutting heights are from 28 to 75 mm through six options.
This has Honda’s GVC190 OHC engine which incorporates a special lubrication system to prolong the engine’s life.
The maker’s recommended price for this mower is £549.95 but we have it for sale for £349.95
This one has a five-year guarantee from Oleo-Mac and free next working day delivery.
And the third is from another favourite brand.
The Mountfield SP535H-V Variable-Speed Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower has a cutting width of 53 cm and has variable speed transmission to make mowing faster and easier.
Cutting heights are from 26 to 87 mm changed with a single lever and has a steel chassis for a longer life.
Larger wheels give excellent traction over rougher ground and it has a 60-litre grass box and a Honda GCV 135 cc four-stroke engine provides plenty of reliable power.
This mower is £579, £60 less than the maker’s recommended retail price. It has a two-year maker’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
