If you have a large lawn and are thinking about buying a lawn tractor, now’s the time to take the plunge.
For here are three best sellers from Mountfield, a company with a long history of manufacturing top machines.
The first is the Mountfield 827M Compact Lawn Rider, a neat little machine made for negotiating narrow paths and gates which other lawn tractors could not pass.
It has a 66cm cutting width and a 196 cc engine easy to fire up as it starts with a key, much like your car.
It has four forward gears and one reverse and a 150 litre grass box which can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat.
It has six cutting heights from 25mm to 80mm and you can buy a trailer hitch and mulching kit as extras.

For bigger lawns there is the Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor which comes with a free tow bar, usually costing £63, a free mulch plug which costs £105 and a free front bumper, in case a tree leaps out in front of you.
This is a great tractor with an 84cm cutting width and twin blades which give an excellent finish and cutting heights from 25mm to 80mm. The large grass box beeps at you when it is full, a very handy feature, and it can be emptied from the driver’s seat.
