Hints & Tips
Many of you are looking to buy a new lawnmower but are undecided so here’s a good reason to buy one from leading American manufacturer MTD.
This company has a long history of producing top class mowers and if you buy one from their range now you will receive a pair of top secateurs absolutely free.
There come from Wilkinson Sword, a company which knows a thing or two about blades, and normally cost £29.99 or $34.99 depending on which mower you buy.
Any gardener will tell you that a set of secateurs is vital for keeping roses and shrubs in order and if you failed to prune in the autumn – and many people are leaving pruning to the early Spring – they are probably now in regular use especially given the early Spring warmth.
The mowers which MTD makes are top class. Their basic machine is the MTD S46SPO Petrol Self-Propelled Lawnmower and is based on their own ThorX 123 cc engine which takes very little effort to start.
This mower can cope with longer, thicker grass as well as smooth lawns and has six cutting heights from 28 mm to 92 mm adjusted by two levers and gives you the option of collecting in the 60 litre grass box, discharging at the back or mulching.
Large wheels give excellent traction.
We have this on sale for £289, a saving of £30 on the maker’s recommended retail price.
It has a two year warranty and we deliver it next day for free.
A mower from the same stable but with a wider cut making it suitable for larger lawns, say up to 1000 sq metres, is the MTD S53SPO Petrol Self-Propelled Lawnmower.
This has a 53 cm cutting width and the same Thor X engine which keeps fuel costs down and vibration levels low.
This too has the three options of dealing with the clippings and six cutting heights and will handle rough grass and smooth lawns equally well.
The grass box can hold 70 litres, so more mowing and fewer trips to the compost heap.
It costs £319, £40 off the maker’s recommended retail price and has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
And don’t forget the free Wilkinson Sword secateurs worth £29.95.
And the top of the range machine is the MTD O53SPB Petrol Self-Propelled Lawnmower a truly powerful mower.
This one has a 190 cc Briggs & Stratton engine designed for a long life with an aluminium cylinder and excellent lubrication.
A float-feed carburettor ensures a consistent fuel -air mixture and electronic ignition also contributes to the engine’s efficiency.
This one will also handle thicker, rougher terrain with ease, and has cutting heights from 28 mm up to 92 mm.
There are the three ways of dealing with clippings and a 70 litre grass box if you choose to collect them.
It costs £399, £40 less than the maker’s recommended price and has a two year warranty, has a two year warranty from MTD and free next working day delivery from us.
