Hints & Tips
The hint of an Indian summer has certainly started the grass growing again and especially after the recent rains.
If you were thinking your old faithful mower might get you through to the end of the grass growing season but it has started to show its age, here and three inexpensive machines from our own range.
The first is the MD 41SP Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower aimed at those of you with a medium sized lawn to keep in trim.
It has a 118 cc engine, cutting heights from 28 to 72 mm and is ideal for small to medium sized lawns and being self-propelled makes cutting the grass fast and simple.
Cutting heights are quickly altered with a single lever and you can tackle smooth lawns and rougher areas with no problems.
It fires up very easily and has a 1 litre fuel tank which is enough for most gardens so you can get the job done without recourse to the fuel can.
The grass box holds 40 litres and the large wheels mean it can handle rougher ground easily. And these wheels have proper ball bearings so they won’t become stiff as the mower gets older.
When you’re finished for the day the handles fold down so it takes up less room in garage or shed.
This mower is delivered free the next working day to the UK mainland. It costs just £149.95 compared with the manufacturer’s recommended price of £249.95.
There is a manufacturer’s warranty for two years.
For slightly larger lawns, say up to the size of a tennis court, there is the MD 46SP Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower.
This one has a cutting g width of 18 in and a larger grass box which can take 60 litres.
The engine on this one is 135 cc and cutting heights are from 27 to 72 mm, so again it can handle all manner of lawns and longer edges. This has a throttle control to you can regulate the revs according to the mowing task.
Again there are ball bearing wheels which will not stiffen as they get older and handles that fold down.
The maker’s recommended retail price is £299.95 but we have for sale at £140 less at just £159.95.
Free next working day delivery and a two year warranty from the makers are included.
And the third in the range is the MD 51SP 3-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower.
This one has the added advantage of a mulch plug which means cuttings can be chopped down to the size of tea leaves and dropped back on the lawn where they rot down and form a valuable fertilizer.
The cutting width is wider again- 21 inches making it sutable for larger lawns and there are ten cutting height options from 24 mm right up to 90 mm for the longer stuff.
The engine is a smooth running 163 cc one and there is a larger fuel tank to keep you mowing longer.
The grass box holds 65 litres and the high wheels mean it can handle rougher areas much more easily.
The maker’s recommended retail price for this mower £399.95 but we have it for sale for £239.95.
There is a two year warranty from the manufacturer and free next working day delivery.
