Hints & Tips
With the garden settling into its winter slumber it pays to make sure that it will look neat and tidy even when it’s mostly sleeping.
Lawn edges and the rougher areas which were trimmed and neat in the Spring and Summer can start to look untidy as the unseasonal autumn warmth encouraged late growth and the brambles have certainly run riot.
So here are three brush cutters which will do the trick, starting with the Einhell GH-BC Petrol Brushcutter with free safety kit which has recently been reduced in price.
This has a 25 cc engine and electronic ignition to make it easy to start ands can be usewd either with the nylon strimming head for lighter parts like lawn edges or with the 23 cm blade for thicker undergrowth.
It has a vibration damping system and a shoulder harness to make it comfortable to use.
And you also receive a free protective helmet with ear muffs and face guard, free protective gloves, a free fuel mixing bottle and replacement strimming line.
It costs £129.95, £70 less than the maker’s recommended price, free next working day delivery and a two year warranty.
The Mountfield MB2801J Two-Stroke Brushcutter has a 25.4 cc engine, an aluminium drive shaft and with a strong metal blade can cut away dense grass and scrub.
It also has a nylon line head for the lighter grass with a tap ‘n’ go line feed and has a loop handle and an anti-vibration system as well as a shoulder harness.
The drive shaft can be split which makes it easier to carry in the car and it costs £179, £30 off the maker’s recommended retail price.
There are free extras with this machine as well including free goggles, 2-stroke engine oil, fuel mixing bottle, replacement line and work gloves.
You can also extent the use of this machine by buying an articulated hedge cutter attachment for £79 and a 25 cm chainsaw pruner for another £79.
Delivery the next working day is free and there is a two year warranty from Mountfield.
And the final one also comes with free extra equipment and has a five year warranty for domestic use.
The Tanaka TBC-230S Line Trimmer is on special offer and the machine you may need for more demanding garden work.
It has a powerful 24 cc engine and a rigid drive mounted on ball bearings.
It weighs just 4.4 kg and has a single strap shoulder harness.
Yo9u can also but attachments which turn it into a hedge trimmer or pruner.
It costs £239, £50 less than the maker’s recommended price and is delivered free the next working day.
You can also buy a brushcutter blade, replacement nylon strimming line and a safety helmet with ear muffs and visor at special prices when placing your order.
