Hints & Tips
So how do you feel today? Bit bleary, stomach begging for mercy. In other words much like most of the rest of the country on Boxing Day.
So here are ten top Boxing Day bargains from our sale which has just started which could save you enough money to keep Rudolph in hay for the next few months.
See the section on our special sale page on ex-demo machines and warehouse clearance models if you want an unbeatable deal, but you’ll need to be quick as these are one of specials, and once they’re gone they’re gone.
We’ve got through to Christmas with no snow but it’s only a matter of time before the white stuff starts puthering down to the delight of the kids but not the rest of us.
Paths need to be cleared which is a back-breaking job with a shovel and has been shown to be dangerous to our health so here’s a neat little inexpensive machine which can make the job lots easier.
Based on the principle of the Archimedes Screw – remember that from your science lessons – the Einhell MSF 570 Manual Snow Plough moves snow to the right away from paths and drives.
It has been designed to be comfortable to use and with a working width of 57 cm you can clear quite large areas comparatively quickly.
The recommended price is £49.95 but we have it for sale for just £25. If you buy three – you’ve probably friends which would like one, the price is just £20 each.
Delivery is free. Remember we deal with orders received over the festive period when we eagerly bounce back to our desks on 5 January.
When the grass starts growing again – and actually in our neck of the woods it hasn’t stopped yet – this bargain machine will really come into its own. The Einhell GH-BC petrol brush cutter with free kit is an amazing bargain
as the recommended price was £199.95, we were selling it with £50 off but in our sale it’s just £129.95.
It has a 25 cc engine and the cowhorn handles make it easier to use on the rougher areas.
And when you see the free extras it is an even better buy. For with this machine you receive free safety helmet complete with ear defenders and face guard, free work gloves and a free fuel mixing bottle.
You also have the opportunity to but 126 metres of replacement strimming line for £19.95.
If it’s a lawmower you want here’s one exclusive to us and a terrific bargain if you have a small lawn to keep neat and tidy say around 260 sq metres, the size of a tennis court.
The Oleo-Mac G44-PK Petrol Push Lawn Mower is an Italian-built machine with a 140 cc engine to power the cutting blade and is ideal for pushing round flower beds as it is very easy to manoeuvre.
The cutting width is 41 cm and there are four cutting heights from 28 mm to 75 mm.
It costs £175.95, has a three year maker’s warranty and is delivered free.
Another mower for a small law which is hand-propelled is the Mountfield HP180 Petrol Rotary Hand Propelled Lawnmower.
This is a solid little mower with a steel cutting deck and a 125 cc Briggs & Stratton engine designed to be simple to start.
This has a cutting width of 45 cm and again is ideal for lawns around the size of a tennis court.
This one has five cutting heights from a very low 20 mm up to 70 mm adjusted by a single lever – many smaller mowers have levers on all four wheels.

The handles fold down so you can get it in the boot of the car easily when relations want to borrow it.

Now a self-propelled mower, again from Mountfield and a mower you won’t find anywhere else.

Now one from the USA and a warehouse clearance special.

It has four ways of dealing with the clippings. You can either collect them in the 60 litres grass box, mulch them and return to the lawn where they rot away, discharge to the side or the rear.
This machine will tackle all sorts of mowing challenges as it can cut longer grass in paddocks and orchards as well as the lawns – it has cutting heights from 28 mm to 92 mm.
Extra high rear wheels give excellent traction in the unkempt areas and it has a Kawasaki engine.
The recommended price for this one is £479 but we are selling it in our sale for £299 with a two year warranty.
We showed you earlier a machine for clearing paths but here’s a really serious machine for clearing longer drives and at a remarkable price in our sale.

The clearing width is 52 cm, wide3 enough to clear longer drives and paths.
It costs only £299, £100 less than the recommended price. It has a three year warranty.
Larger lawns really need lawn tractors or ride-ons if you’re not to spend most of the weekend walking behind a mower.

With a 196 cc Mountfield engine started by a key it has four forward and one reverse gears so it can tackle all sorts of mowing challenges from rougher paddocks to smooth lawns.
It also scores as the 150 litre grass box can be emptied without leaving the driving seat.

And there is also an optional mulch kit.
It costs £1199, £100 off the recommended price and it has a two year warranty from Mountfield. We deliver it free within two to three working days once we have processed the order.
The Lawnflite 603 RT Lawn Tractor is perfect for typical British weather – it is a great collector of wet grass.
Made for lawns of around 4000 sq metres it has a 76 cm cutting width an it scores again as the cutting deck is offset to the right enabling you to cut right up to the lawn edges.
The single blade is designed to literally throw the cut grass through the exit chute and it also has a turbo fan to provide a great blast of air.
The speed can be very precisely controlled with infinitely variable foot operated transmission.
This one costs £1499 compared with the recommended price of £1749 and it has a two year warranty. We deliver it free within two to three days of processing the order – and after the Christmas period this will be January 5.
