Hints & Tips
With the heatwave seemingly over for the time being the lawns have started growing again and need regular trimming, preferable twice a week, to keep them looking their best.
So here are four of our own mowers all offering exceptional value for money suitable for lawns from small back gardens to much larger ones. First is the little MD 40P Petrol Push Lawn Mower light and easy to push with a GGP SV35 four stroke 150 cc engine designed to start easily.
It has a lightweight polypropylene deck resistant to rust and a 40 litre grass box.
There are four height adjustments from 25 to 75 mm and the cutting width is 39 cm.
The handlebars fold down for easy storage and as a safety device there is a deadman’s handle which cuts the engine when released.
This mower has a two year manufacturer’s guarantee and free next working day delivery and costs £129.95. The maker’s recommended retail price is £179.95.
The MD 41SP Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is a great little mower for small to medium sized lawn, say up to the size of a tennis court with cutting heights from 27 to 72 mm adjusted with a single lever.
It has a 118 cc engine, a one litre fuel tank and a robust steel deck for a long life. And it has a 40 litre grass box and large wheels mounted on proper ball bearings.
This one costs £169.95 compared with the maker’s recommended retail price of £249.95 and is delivered free the next working day. It has a two year manufacturer’s guarantee.
A slightly larger mower for larger lawns is the MD 46SP Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower with a 46 width of cut and a larger 60 litre grass box.
A 135 cc engine powers this mower which has cutting heights are from 27 mm to 72 mm and there is a throttle control to alter the revs.
This one costs £189.95 compared with the maker’s recommended retail price of £299.95 and has a two year warranty from the manufacturer.

The third machine is the MD 51SP 3-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower suitable for larger lawns. And as well as collecting clippings in the grass box they can also be mulched and returned to the lawn.
This one has an extra wide 51 cm cutting width and cuts grass from 25 mm up to 90 mm so you can cut much long areas.
This one has a powerful 163 cc engine and a 65 litre grass box and high wheels make it very manoeuvrable and capable of working on rough ground.
This one costs £269.95 compared with the maker’s recommended price of £399.95. Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year warranty from the manufacturers.
And with this mower there is a 10 litre Jerry can absolutely free.
Don’t forget that if you have areas of rough ground to cut back the MD 22P wheeled grass trimmer is the machine you need.
Small enough to get in to tight spaces and powerful enough to hack down nettles grass and scrub it has proved a very popular machine this summer.
And it costs just £299 with free next working day delivery and a two year warranty from the manufacturers.
