Hints & Tips
Lawn tractors are worth their weight in gold at the moment with the lawns wanting a good trim after the recent rains and the autumn clean-up, apples to be collected and wood to be carted for the first fires.
And this is where a trailer really comes into its own, saving hours of back-breaking work pushing a barrow.
If you buy an Oleo-Mac heavy duty lawn tractor now you get the trailer completely free.

For instance the Oleo-Mac 106J/15.5H Heavy-Duty Lawn & Garden Tractor has a 500 cc Briggs & Stratton engine,102 cm cutting width and a hydrostatic drive for precise control. And he turning circle is only 85 cm
The cutter blades can be switched on and off with a simple little switch and the forward and reverse gears are controlled by a single pedal and contra rotating blades give an excellent finish to the lawn.
Anti-scalp wheels on the cutting deck also ensure no chunks are taken out of the turf and there is a massive 300 litre grass box.
With this machine there is an MC 180T tipping trailer worth £179 completely free.
