Hints & Tips
Many of you are looking for a new mower now the grass has started growing more quickly and here are three from a leading European manufacturer exclusive to us at MowDirect.
You may not have heard of the name Oleo-Mac but have a look at customer reviews of their products and you will see that they are all very well-made machines offering superb value for money and with long warranties from the manufacturer.
And while we are on customer reviews. Take a look at the comments on this beauty. The Oleo-Mac G48-TK Comfort-Plus Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower has an EMAK 140cc engine, low in emissions and mean on fuel and is made with a small to medium-sized lawn in mind.
The cutting width is 48cm and it is easy to use with a ground speed of 3.6km/h. The cutting heights are from 28mm to 75mm and the grass box holds 60 litres.
This is a very solid mower with a five-year warranty from Oleo-Mac and for added peace of mind it has a dead man’s handle to cut the engine e as soon as it is released so it won’t trundle its merry way through the flower beds if you lose control.
It costs £229.95, £90 off the recommended price and is delivered free the next working day following receipt of your order.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower, also on special offer, has a 159cc engine and the same solid build as the previous machine.
This one has a slightly wider cutting width making it suitable for larger lawns, say up to 1200m2.
Cutting heights are from 28mm to 75mm made by a single lever and it has a powder-coated finish to resist corrosion and the inevitable scuffs and scratches all mowers get.
This one costs £249.95, £140 less than the maker’s recommended price, has a super-long five-year warranty and free next working day delivery.
Finally, the Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower, on special offer, is the one for you if you have a variety of grasses to cut.
For with this one you can either cut the grass and collect the clippings in the giant 70-litre box or mulch the cuttings.
Mulching is when the cut grass is held in the deck and cut down to tiny pieces the size of tea leaves before being dropped back to the lawn where they rot away becoming a worthwhile fertilizer.
Don’t attempt to mulch unless the grass is dry and not over long.
You can also discharge the clippings to the rear and side, useful where the finish is not so important, like small paddocks, copse or orchards.
The engine on this one is a 196cc model, plenty for it to take on rougher areas.
Large drive wheels make it easy to navigate in rougher areas.
The recommended price for this machine is £499.95 but we are selling it for £329.95, a saving of £170.
Again there is a five year warranty and free next working day delivery.
