Hints & Tips
Mowers are getting much better at collecting grass clippings when wet and Einhell, a leading German garden machinery manufacturer, has developed a new range excellent at coping with British conditions.
The company has developed Vortex technology which includes a specially-shaped cutter deck and an aerodynamic blade which forces the grass upright before it is cut.
This leads to a much more even finish and also develops a strong airflow to give excellent collection of cut grass, even when wet.
Here are three machines from the extensive range to give you an idea of the mowers the manufacture.
With a 47cm cutting width and a 139cc engine with Einhell’s Quick-Start system, the Einhell GC-PM47 SHW 5-in-1 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower is ideal for a medium to large–sized garden which has both smooth areas and parts where the finish is not so important.
If you do want to collect, the grass box holds 75 litres.
This one is exclusive to us and costs £299.95, a full £100 off the recommended price making it a great value mower.
We deliver it the following working day and it has a two-year warranty.
For a bigger lawn with smooth and rough bits and all the other areas in between have a look at this one, the Einhell GC-PM 56 SHW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower.
This is similar in many ways as it has the same five ways of dealing with clippings but it is a much bigger machine with a 56cm cutting width making it suitable for larger areas.
Employing the same Vortex cutting technology and a larger, more 173cc engine with the same Quick-Start technology, it has the power to take on rough areas and garden slopes.
The handlebars are adjustable and there are six cutting heights from 25mm to 70mm.
And it also has a front handle to make it easy to move around or lift into the car.
The price is £369.95, £180 below the maker’s recommended price, we deliver it free the next working day and it has a two-year warranty.
And the top-of-the range machine is the Einhell GE-PM 53 VS-HW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower (with Variable Speed).
With this one you can set the speed at which you prefer to mow while still having five way of dealing with the cut grass.
Power is from a 150cc engine and it has a huge 80 litre grass box and a wide cutting width. The box has an indicator to show when it is full.
If you own a garden with different types of grass – flat lawns, small orchards or paddocks or paths – this is the mower that will make life easier as you can regulate the speed according to the conditions.
There is even a tool included for cleaning the mower before you put it away.
It costs £399.95, a full £200 off the maker’s recommended price and is delivered free the next working day with a two-year warranty from Einhell.
