Hints & Tips
What us? Lost our marbles? Lawnmowers and lawn tractors in winter?
No, our marbles are all present and correct and we are suggesting that now is the time to buy grass cutting equipment for the simple reason that prices at this time of the year are unbeatable.
And believe it or not, there are still some of us who want to trim the lawn as the grass is still growing a bit and a quick trim when it is still dry will leave the garden looking neat and ready for the Spring growth.
Although with the rain lashing down and trees nearly at right angles you might think that a few marbles have departed up the chimney along with a note to Santa.
So, ok, have a look at this bargain mower, the MTD 53BS Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower, exclusive to us at MowDirect, and from a leading USA manufacturer.
Aimed at areas up to 1500m2, it has a Briggs & Stratton 150cc engine which has enough power to tackle the rougher areas as well as the lawn and has si8x cutting heights from 20mm to 90mm.
The cutting width is 53cm and the grass box holds 80 litres, one of the largest for a mower of this size.
It costs £199, £50 less than the price recommended, has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
Many professional gardeners and estate workers but from us and this one will be of interest to them as well as home owners with large gardens.
