Hints & Tips
It might be stating the bloomin’ obvious, but if you have a larger lawn you need a mower with a wider cut if you are not to spend much of your free time cutting grass.
So here are three top mowers from leading manufacturers made with larger lawns in mind.
It’s just about time to give the lawn its first cut so remember not to be tempted to take too much off to start with in case a late frost should hold back and discolour Spring growth.
The first is the MD 51SP 3-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower, exclusive to us at Mowdirect.
This mower has a 51 cm cut – 21 inches in old money – and has three ways of dealing with the clippings.
They can either be discharged at the back, handy for areas where the grass is left longer like orchards, mulched and returned to the lawn or collected in the 65 litre grass box.
Cutting heights are from 25 mm up to 90 mm and the power is froma 163 cc engine. This has a 1.3 litre fuel tank so you won’r need to re-fuel so often.
The Hi-Wheel design means it is more suited to dealing with undulating ground and is easier to drive.
It costs £269.95, £130 off the maker’s recommended retail price. We deliver it free the next working day and there is a one year warranty.
This next one is also exclusive to us and it is the Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower, currently on special offer.
This has a cutting width of 51 cm and has four ways of disposing of the cuttings – either discharged to the back or side, mulched and returned to the lawn or collected in the 70 litre grass box.
The power is from an Emak engine, 196 cc, designed to keep engine noise and fuel consumption to a minimum.
Cutting heights are from 28 mm up to 75 mm and with this design of mower rougher areas are easily handled.
Extra large wheels handle rougher areas easily and make turning at the end of the rows easier.
Tis one costs £299.95, £200 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and has a three year warranty. Delivery the next working day is free.
And the third is from the USA and powered by Honda. The McCulloch M53-160DW High-Wheel 4-in-1 Self-propelled Lawn Mower is another one exclusive to MowDirect and again has the four way of dealing with clippings – discharged to the side or back, mulched and returned to the lawn where the rot down and become a useful fertilizer or collected in the grass box.
And this holds a massive 71 litres.
The Honda 160 cc engine is very easy to start and has low fuel consumption. Cutting heights are from 25 mm up to 82 mm and the high rear wheels make it easy to navigate.
This one costs £349, £150 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and has a one year warranty. Again, we deliver it free the next working day.
