Machines built to tackle steep banks and ditches

Grassy banks and tricky slopes can be difficult if not impossible to keep in trim with a conventional mower, but this is where hover mowers really come into their own.

So here are three machines from the USA manufactured Toro range which should answer the problem.

These mowers float on a cushion of air and are light to use making it far easier to tackle this task.

First in this company’s range is the Toro HoverPro 400 Petrol Hover Lawn Mower with a 57 cc engine from Honda and a very light weight of only 12.5 kg.

It has an ABS polymer deck which will never rust and will bounce off hard objects rather than cause damage.

It has a nylon wire cutting system which the maker’s say gives the cutting performance offten associated with machine fitted with blades.

For longer grass you can buy a high-rise kit.

The costs of this mower is £399, £100 off the maker’s recommended retail price and it comes with a free bottle of oil.

We deliver it free the next working day with a two year warranty.

An extension handlebar can be bought for longer banks.
