Hints & Tips
Last Friday we highlighted ten top pieces of garden equipment for trimming back the neglected areas of gardens where weeds abound, but often all you need is a neat little trimmer to take care of lawn edges.
And this one from Oleo-Mac is a great machine and we think just about the best value-for-money strimmer available for lighter tasks.
Oleo-Mac Sparta 250 TR Low Emission Curved Shaft Petrol Grass Trimmer, new in and on special offer, is perfect for lawn edges and the long grass which can grow up against walls and garden furniture.
In fact we have just expanded the range of Oleo-Mac strimmers and brushcutters as they offer such good value and are seriously strong and reliable machines.
The curved handle makes it very easy to use on lawn edges and it can also be turned on its side for getting a really sharp edge to the lawn.
Its 25.4cc engine has excellent emission figures and is mean on fuel while producing fewer vibrations making it comfortable to use.
And while it is perfect for lawn edges it is strong enough to deal with sturdier weeds like nettles.
It is simple to feed out more strimming line when it is needed, simply tap the strimming head on the ground.
It has another advantage in that it is one of the lightest petrol strimmers on the market, weighing only 4.5kg. And when it comes to maintenance the air filter can be accessed by pressing a release catch.
We also provide a free face-shield and spare strimming line with this model worth together £15.
The recommended price is £179.95 but we have it for sale for just £99.95, so you save £80, and you can also buy a litre of 2-stroke oil for £4.95 and a fuel mixing bottle for the same price.
The machine is delivered free the next working day and has a three-year warranty.
