Hints & Tips
The recent frosts have sent most of the last of the leaves tumbling – those on oak trees seem to hang on well into the winter and some won’t fall for a month and maybe longer.
Leaves need to be cleared from lawns as they will stop light and moisture getting to the plant and will leave discoloured patches come the Spring just when you want your lawn to look its best with the new growth.
So here are three efficient leaf collection machines which will clear leaves in double quick time.
The first is the simplest little machine, easy to use and really efficient.
The Agri-Fab 26″ Push Lawn & Leaf Sweeper (45-0218) brushes leaves into a collector as you push it along.
The collector can hold 200 litres and the brush revolves four time for each turn of the wheel.
And with a clearing width of 66 cm it can clear large areas in double quick time. It weighs 13.5 kg and is very easy to push along and you can adjust the height at which it works so it can clean concrete paths and gravel drives as well.
And it is equally effective cleaning the inside of barns and large patios and swimming pool perimeters.
It costs £139, £40 off the recommended retail price and has a five year warranty. We deliver it free the next working day.
If you have a large lawn you’ll probably have a garden tractor and this machine will save you hours of back-breaking work with a tined rake.
The Agri-Fab Smart-Sweep 44″ Towed Lawn & Leaf Sweeper (45-0492) is simply attached with a pin hitch and has a working width of 111.5 cm.
It has been designed so it will not jump or skip as it is being towed so you can clear large areas with one pass.
The collector holds 710 litres and can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat.
The recommended retail price is £449 but we are selling it for £339 with free next working day delivery and a five year maker’s warranty.
And if you are thinking about a leaf blower, here’s an extra special bargain.
The Mighty Mac LB5-EX Leaf Blower is on exclusive special offer at 50 per cent less than the maker’s recommended price.
It has a 5 hp Briggs & Stratton engine and created s a 257 km/hour blast of air so that even matted leaves are shifted.
You can change the direction of the blast by a deflector. With this bargain machine you can very quickly blow all the fallen leaves from a large area into one pile so they can be more easily collected.
This is a dead simple machine to use and costs just £199 – the recommended retail price is £499.
It has a two year warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
