Hints & Tips
Easter, the first holiday of the year and a major opportunity for gardeners to start work in earnest.
With the recent spates of rain most of the country has had, the grass will be growing strongly.
And if you have already cut the lawn once on a high setting now’s the time to cut it again on a lower setting. But not too low, there’s still time for a sharp frost.
Here are three mowers from a German engineering company which are made for larger lawns – and they can also cope with the rougher bits as well.
The Einhell GC-PM 51SHW 4-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is exclusive to MowDirect and made for bigger lawns with a 51 cm cutting width.
It can discharge longer grass both at the rear and the side of the mower and mulch the shorter areas as well as collect in the 70 litre grass box.
It also has a front grass comb, which smooths the grass before it is cut and gives a better finish.
This is a solidly-built mower with high rear wheels which make it easier to handle rougher areas.
It costs £319.95, £160 less than the recommended selling price and has a two-year warranty.
We deliver it FREE the next working day.
This one, the Einhell GC-PM 56SHW Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower, has a cutting width of 56 cm, even wider and suitable for the largest lawns.
It, too, has four ways of dealing with the clippings, a giant 75 litre grass box and has a 173 cc engine.
The start cable is fixed on the handles, so no risking damaging your back to start it. Cutting heights are from 30 mm to 75 mm and adjustable handlebars make it comfortable to use.
This one costs £339.95, £230 off the recommended price and has a two year warranty. Next working day delivery is free.
And this next one is the easiest to start of the lot – you just turn a key.
The Einhell GC-PM 53 SHW-E 4-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower with Electric Start has a 53 cm cutting width and the four options of dealing with the clippings – discharging to the side or rear or mulching and returning to the lawn or collecting in the grass box.
The high rear wheels make it easy to manoeuvre and cut longer, less well-kept areas.
The 173 cc engine delivers bags of power and the handles have three positions to make it comfortable to use.
This one costs £369, £180 less than the maker’s recommended price and it has a two year warranty. Again, we deliver it free the next working day.
