Hints & Tips
Oleo-Mac is a garden machinery company from Italy making really reliable equipment, and now they are offering a five-year warranty on all their mowers.
For domestic mowers this is a longer warranty period than most other manufacturers, so when you buy one this gives an assurance that you are buying a machine made to last.
And all are delivered free the next working day.

And the cutting heights are from 28mm to 75mm so it will deal with the rougher areas as well.
The grass box holds 60 litres.
