Hints & Tips
Not that long ago garden machinery powered by a battery simply did not have the ability to match those powered by petrol and mains electricity.
But all that has changed since the introduction of lithium-ion batteries so that now mowers and other garden machines have the power of petrol with none of the fumes of the internal combustion engine.
And they are far lighter, a fact which certainly appeals to a larger proportion of the gardening public.
For instance, the Greenworks G-MAX 45Li-40V Lithium-Ion 4-in-1 Cordless Lawnmower (25357) is a terrific machine which can cut a lawn the size of a couple of tennis courts without recharging the battery.
And the battery can be fully re-charged in just two hours.
It also has a cutting height right down to 20 mm and up to 70 mm and the clippings are either released to the side or back of the machine or can be mulched and returned to the lawn or collected on the grass box.
The great advantage of buying a mower like this is that once you have battery and charger, other equipment in the Greenworks range can be purchased remarkably cheaply.
For instance a leaf blower costs only £39 and a hedge trimmer £59. This is because the battery fits both these machines and others, which are available at the time or purchase at very keen prices.
The maker’s recommended retail price for this mower is £499 but we are selling it for only £299.
It has a four year warranty and free next working day delivery.
