Hints & Tips
First, a very Happy New Year to everyone from all at Mowdirect. We’re snow free but would probably feel warmer had there been a covering as the overnight frosts have been vicious.
When you have freezing temperatures like this try to keep off the lawn as much as you can as the grass will be damaged by trampling feet when covered by snow or frost.
So to welcome in the New Year, here are ten top bargains for the garden to make your tasks easier.
And starting off is a great little snow clearance tool featured recently on Chanel 4’s Gadget Show.
The Stiga Snow Electric 31 Snow Blower works much like an electric shovel gathering the snow into the front and then blowing it up to eight metres away so you can easily cut a 31 cm path through the snow with little effort.
Very light and easy to handle it works using a 1100 Watt electric motor and has an intake height of 23 cm and can clear the paths around your house without reaching for the trusty snow shovel.
It has snow shoes on the bottom so it just slides over the surface.
It costs £79, that’s £20 off the recommended retail price. Delivery is free the next working day and it has a one year warranty.
Now at this time of the year there’s nothing like sitting around a blazing wood fire, especially if it’s your own wood you’ve cut yourself.
So help you prepare the wood here’s a great New Year bargain., the Einhell Petrol Chainsaw with Free Starter Kit, exclusive to us and on special offer.
Ideal for cutting logs and even felling small trees this little machine has a 41 cc engine and has a 35 cm long chain bar and an industry-leading Oregan chain.
The chain is automatically lubricated and the machine is light and well balanced. And it is safe to use with a chain brake which cuts in if there is a kick back.
With this machine you receive a free safety helmet with visor and ear defenders, work gloves, fuel mixing bottle and a spare chain.
This whole package is currently £60 less than the recommended retail price and you can also buy extras, like a chain saw horse, for special prices.
It costs £139.95, has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
So you’ve cut the logs to size, now you need to split them and this is best done with an automatic log splitter if you’re not to suffer a painful back.
And this little machine will certainly do the trick, the MD 4-Ton Electric Horizontal Log-Splitter, currently on special offer.
It works by forcing logs on to a solid wedge splitter and uses four tons of pressure, enough for most woods for the fire.
The hydraulic pressure is generated by a 1500 Watt electric motor and can handle logs up to 25 cm in diameter and 37 cm long.
Safe to use, it has transport wheels on the base making it easy to move around.
We deliver it free the next working day and it has a two year warranty. It costs £149.95, £100 off the recommended retail price.
At this time of year it’s sometimes difficult to believe that lawns and hedges will ever grow again. But when the hedges start to grow you’ll be glad you took advantage of this special offer on the Tanaka TCH22E-AP2 (50) Petrol Hedgetrimmer.
This really is a cracking machine, simple to start, light but really powerful.
It has a 21.1 cc engine designed to emit fewer emissions and has 50 cm cutting blades with 30 mm tooth gap so it can tackle quite thick stems.
Another feature is the rear hand grip which rotates 180 degrees making it easier to use on hedge sides.
