Hints & Tips
You might not know this, but in deepest Lapland dear old Santa himself has to spend the warmer months gardening.
He’s fenced off a section of his lawn to keep Rudolph and his marauding mates away so he can have a perfect carpet of green, free from hoof marks.
And should he need a new mower he’d probably chose one of these two best sellers from Mountfield.
It’s no great secret that the portly Mr Claus is a candidate for the health police, what with his binges on mincepies and sweet sherry, so he ought to be using this hand-propelled machine, the Mountfield HP180 Petrol Rotary Hand Propelled Lawnmower.
A belting mower with a 125 cc Briggs & Stratton engine, an easy starter powering the cutting blade on this 45 cm wide machine, it is recommended for lawns around 1600 sq metres.
The grass box holds 55 litres and it has five cutting heights from 20 mm to 70 mm.
It would make a great present for any gardener this Christmas at £199, £100 less than the recommended retail price.
Delivery, though not by sleigh, is free and there is a two year maker’s warranty.
The self-propelled version is the Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is on exclusive special offer with a 125 cc Briggs & Stratton engine and has a rear wheel drive to make mower a much more enjoyable.
This makes it much easier to cut longer, thicker grass and to tackle the slopes on the lawn.
Again cutting heights are from 20 mm to 70 mm and it has a 55 litre fabric grass box which allows the air to escape and makes collecting damp clippings more efficient as it boosts the airflow from the cutting deck.
It has a 45 cm width of cut and can tackle small to medium-sized lawns.
A best seller, it costs £249, £100 less than the maker’s recommended price. We deliver it free and it has a two year warranty from Mountfield.
Remember, we can deliver to any UK mainland address so you can send it as a present and not worry about lifting it into the car boot.
These two mowers will make great gifts this Christmas – there’s still time to order and for us to deliver it for you.
We don’t deliver to Lapland, but Santa has said he’ll pick it up when he starts his Christmas journey.
We’ve left a sausage roll and a glass of something special for him when he drops in to our offices. Just don’t tell the health police.
