Hints & Tips
Bolens is a name which might not trip off the tongues when it comes to lawn tractors.
But it is a well-established manufacturer in the United States and makes top quality machinery at very keen prices.
We think this one, the Bolens B36 Lawn Tractor, is a must for the shortlist for anyone looking for a powerful machine for areas up to 8000m2.
Powered by a tried and trusted Briggs Stratton 344cc engine, it has a 92cm width of cut and a 240 litre grass box for the clippings.
Twin blades give a really powerful air current in the cutting deck which leads to excellent grass collection even when it’s wet, which it occasionally is in this country!
This engine has very low vibration levels so it is comfortable to drive for long periods and it has a pivoting front axle so it can handle undulating ground.
Twin headlights show the way when it gets murky and Transmatic transmission makes it simple to control the speed – much like an automatic car.
A huge range of attachments are available for lawn tractors and this one has a Fast Attach system which lets you remove the grass box without tools, making fixing them simple.
A mulch plug and rear grass deflector for use when cutting longer grass are both available as extras.
It costs £1599, £200 off the recommended price, and is delivered free within two to three working days. There is a two year warranty.
