Hints & Tips
Mowdirect are the official on line partner with Mountfield, one of Britain’s most popular manufacturers of garden machinery, and this arrangement enables us to offer exclusive products on our site at very special prices.
And with every penny counting these days, here are two of their mowers which are proving very popular this year as the grass cutting season gets into top gear.
First is the Mountfield HP46. This hand-propelled mower gives a great finish and is a solid and durable machine made to last. It has a steel deck, 100 cc engine made by the manufacturers and is easy to fire up with a recoil start.
Ideal for medium sized lawns, say up to 1000 sq metres, it has a 45 cm cutting width and cuts down to 20 mm and up to 70 mm making it suitable for most types of grass.
Grass collection is very efficient, even when the grass is a bit wet, thanks to the design of the cutting deck and the grass box holds 55 litres.
Folding handles mean the machine takes less storage room and there is a deadman’s handle safety feature which cuts the engine when released.
It costs £179 – Mountfield’s recommended retail price is £269 – and there is a two year warranty. Delivery is free the next working day.
If you’re looking for a self-propelled mower for a medium sized lawn then the Mountfield SP46 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower could be for you.
Similar to the hand-propelled machine this too has Mountfield’s own engine to power the rear wheels and makes trimming longer grassy areas much less hassle.
Cutting heights are from 20 mm to 70 mm and the grass box can hold 55 litres. And the cutting deck is made of steel for a longer life and is 45 cm wide.
There is a two year warranty from Mountfield and free next working day delivery. It costs £249 as against the maker’s recommended price of £349.
And while we’re talking about great value for money mowers, how about this?
The MD 40P Petrol Push Lawn Mower has a lightweight polymer deck, a 150 cc engine and a 40 litre grass box.
The cutting width is 39 cm, meaning it is suitable for smaller lawns and the cutting height is from 25 mm to 75 mm with five options.
It also means it is the ideal machine for smaller lawns where there are several flower beds and other obstructions.
Another handy feature is the overall weight – it weighs just 22 kg.
This great little mower costs just £129.95 as against the maker’s recommended price of £179.95.
Delivered free the next working day it has a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
