Hints & Tips
We are the country’s leading retailer of lawn tractors with the biggest selection bar none, and now our service to customers has improved significantly yet again.
From today, lawn or garden tractors from four leading manufacturers ordered by 3pm Friday can be delivered the following day for a small extra charge.
So order Friday and mow Saturday, it’s that simple.
To give you an idea of the machines available here are ten top ride-ons and garden tractors ready for you to use tomorrow if you order today.
The first is an all-time favourite, just the right size for a garden a bit too big for an ordinary wide-cut mower or the perfect first mower if you just fancy cutting the lawn a bit more quickly with a bit less effort.
Mountfield 827M Compact Lawn Rider has a 66cm cutting width and is small enough to get through most garden gates but is nevertheless a great little machine for a large lawn.
With a 196cc engine built by the manufacturer it is started by a key rather than a cord and has five forward gears and one reverse.
At the back is a 150-litre grass box which can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat.
It will cut from 25mm to give a really tight finish to the main lawn and up to 80mm for the areas not so important.
You can buy a trailer hitch as an optional extra and a mulch kit if you want to deal with the clippings on dry days that way.
It costs £1199, £100 off the list price and is delivered free within two to three working days if you don’t want to pay extra for the Saturday delivery. And there is a two year warranty from Mountfield.
Here’s another great little machine new and exclusive to us.
The MTD 2-in-1 Combi Lawn Tractor is made by a leading company from the States.
With this one you can discharge clipping s to the side when mowing areas where the finish is not so important and the switch to mulching them where you prefer a smarter appearance.
MTD’s own 420cc engine beats under the bonnet, providing great power while being mean on fuel and lower vibrations.
A handy feature on this machine is the pivoting cutting deck to minimise scalping and follow the contours of ground. Wide-profile tyres help with this and also give great grip when it’s wet. There are five cutting heights.
It costs £1299, has a two-year warranty and is delivered free within two to three working days. But don’t forget the Saturday option. Order by 3pm today, now, get it by Saturday!
This little ride-on will really stand out from the crowd with its sporty looks.
The Lawnflite 76-RDE Mini Rider has a 76cm cutting deck and a 420cc MTD engine. You have the option of collecting the clippings in the 150-litre grass box of mulching them when conditions allow.
The Transmatic transmission allows you to change gear on the move which makes it really easy to drive and there are six forward and six reverse gears so you can drive at the exact speed which suits the conditions.
There are five cutting heights from 38mm to 95mm and another handy feature is a fuel gauge so you can see how much is left in the tank.
This one costs £1349, £150 off the maker’s recommended price, has a two year warranty and standard delivery of two to three working days.
Now a lawn tractor which has proved a great favourite.
Mountfield 1538M SD Lawn Tractor, which is on special offer, is a great value machine as it can mulch clipping s but is totally at home mowing less formal areas like small paddocks, orchards and the like when the grass can be discharged to the side.
Mountfield’s own 452cc engine provides the power and twin blades counter rotating give an excellent cut and create a powerful air current in the cutting deck – cutting heights are from 25mm to 80mm.
It has five gears and wide-profile tyres to give plenty of grip.
This one is £1399, £200 off the maker’s recommended price and standard delivery is free within three to five working days.
There is a five year warranty from the manufacturer.
Lawnflite 603 XT-S Lawn Tractor has always been a great-value machine but now it’s even better as there is a free push-push trailer worth £199.
MTD’s 420cc engine has been designed to keep emissions to a minimum and to be mean on fuel. The tractor has been designed to be a great collector of wet grass with a built-in fan and close-coupled collection box.
It is comfortable to drive with an adjustable seat and has a pair of headlights for evening work.
Collection and discharging to the rear are standard and there are five cutting heights from 30mm to 95mm. The turning circle is just 46cm.
It costs £1449, £250 off the price recommended and has a two-year maker’s warranty. Normal delivery is free and within two to three working days.
This next one is from the same stable and it’s the Lawnflite 380 GT-X Lawn Tractor and has a 344cc Briggs & Stratton engine which keeps both emissions and vibrations to a minimum making it more comfortable to drive and giving it a longer life.
Hydrostatic transmission means it drives much like an automatic car, and again it has a tight 46cm turning circle and adjustable seat.
There are five cutting heights from 30mm to 95mm and the cutting deck has two wheels so it follows the contours of the lawn and won’t scalp it if it’s a bit uneven.
A tow hitch is supplied as standard and a mulch kit, grass box and front bumper can be bought as optional extras.
It has £250 off the price as it costs only £1549 and this one too has a free tow-push trailer worth £199.
Now another all-time favourite.
Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor has a 84cm cutting width and twin cutting blades to give an excellent finish and excellent grass collection even when it’s wet.
This one has seven cutting heights from 25mm to 80mm and the grass box, which holds 240 litres, beeps at you when it needs emptying – a very useful feature.
The engine is Mountfield’s own 452cc model, designed to give the machine plenty of power and for a long life. It also runs quietly and keeps vibrations to a minimum.
There are five forward and one reverse gears to make it easy to drive. Add to that chunky tyres which give a great grip and it’s little surprise why this has been a favourite lawn tractor for some time.
You can also buy a deflector kit for the longer areas and a mulch kit and tow bar.
The tractor costs £1599, £200 off the list price, has a five year warranty and normal delivery is free and within two to three working days. Plus there is a five year warranty.
Don’t forget the Saturday delivery option for a small extra charge.
Now a new machine from the same company.
The Mountfield 1538H Lawn Tractor has a 452cc engine and a super-large six litre fuel tank.
Hydrostatic transmission means it drives like an automatic car and it has a turning circle of just 140cm. Combine the two features and you have a large lawn tractor which is very easy to control.
The grass box holds 240 litres and beeps when it needs emptying. This avoids blockages which in turn produces unsightly lumps of grass on an otherwise immaculate lawn.
A front bumper is fitted – just in case – and it has a port on the cutting deck which takes a garden hose and makes it very easy to clean.
It costs £1899, £200 off the list price and has a five year warranty.
The Lawnflite 420 GT-XII V-Twin Lawn Tractor has a 656 Briggs & Stratton two cylinder engine with an advanced air filter to give it a longer life. Hydrostatic transmission makes it easy to drive, helped by the fact that the turning circle is just 46cm.
It can collect, mulch or discharge the clippings to the side and has two wheels under the cutting deck to minimise scalping.
This is the one you should consider if you have a large area to keep in trim – say 10,000m2 – as it has a 107cm cutting width. Cutting heights are form 30mm to 95mm.
It costs £1999, £400 off the recommended price and like the other machines from Lawnflite, this too is delivered with a free trailer worth £199.
It is delivered free within two to three working days of receiving the order and has a two year warranty.
Like other machines mentioned this too has a Saturday delivery option for an additional sum.
And finally, one from a leading German manufacturer.
The Al-Ko T16-92HD Special Edition Lawn Tractor has a twin-cylinder Briggs & Stratton engine and is fitted with a Hi-Lift blade which develops really strong air currents under the cutting deck to force the cuttings into the grass box.
This makes it an ideal mower for areas of up to, say, 6000m2 – it has a cutting width of 92cm.
The grass box holds 220 litres and can be emptied from the driver’s seat and the hydrostatic drive makes it easy to control.
With this garden tractor there is also a free garden tractor worth £199.
It costs £1099, £500 off the recommended price and it has a two year warranty. We deliver it free within two to three working days but remember the Saturday option.
These are just ten of the great ride-ons and garden tractors on our site. These pages contain a huge selection right up to mowers made for large parks and estates.
And don’t forget that a selection of these machines can be delivered on a Saturday for an additional payment.
