Hints & Tips
High summer arrives, the roads are jammed, beaches awash with red bodies and those staying at home decide this is the time for a summer party and food cremation, or barbecues as this summer ritual is better known.
A perfect lawn is essential and for this you need a great mower – and these machines from Hayter are just about the best you can buy.
Hayter are manufactured in Britain and have a long history as they were among the first to manufacture lawnmowers.
If you need a new mower have a look at these from the pages on our site where they are listed. And they’re all at very keen prices.
For a smaller lawn, the Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Push Rear Roller Lawnmower (Code: 617) is ideal.
As you push it, the mower is easier to control around garden corners, and it will leave a striped finish which will really show off the rest of the garden.
It has a 41cm cutting width with the cutting blades powered by a 125cc Briggs & Stratton engine.
The rear roller is ribbed and it can mow right up to flower border edges without the risk of toppling into the blooms.
It has seven cutting heights, right down to 13mm and has a long-lasting aluminium chassis while the cutting deck is made from ABS plastic which resists knocks, keeps the weigh down and helps with the airflow, essential for collecting thye clippings – the grass box holds 55 litres.
The recommended price is £369 but we are selling it for £319.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a free bottle of engine oil and a three year warranty from Hayter.
For a bigger lawn you need a mower with a wider cut and this one which is self-propelled and this one could well fit the bill.
The Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive Lawnmower with Variable Speed (Code: 490) has a 48cm cutting width and is powered by a 190cc Briggs & Strattom Ready-Start engine.
These engines start with the lightest of pulls on the starter cord and need no priming.
This one has cutting heights from 13mm to 60mm and the cutting deck is lined to keep the noise down and give it a longer life.
It also has a cutter bar friction disc so the crank will not bend if you hit something solid.
The aluminium chassis gives the mower a long life and it has a 70-litre grass box to minimise the trips to the compost heap.
This one costs £765 compared with the recommended price of £899 and free 10-litre jerry can worth £24.95 is included as a free gift.
It has a five year warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
And if you have areas to cut where the finish is not so important you may well consider this one, the Hayter R53A Power-Driven Recycling Lawn Mower VS ES (Sens-A-Speed Transmission, Aluminium Deck) (Code: 449).
For this mower can mulch and discharge clippings to the side as well as collect them. But only mulch when the grass is dry or you will be left with unsightly clumps of cut grass.
Another great advantage with this machine is that it matches the speed at which you want to mow, so you won’t find it dragging you round trees and borders faster than is comfortable.
This one also has a 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine which is started with a key, so no tugging on a starter rope.
This one has cutting heights from 25mm to 114mm and a 54.5 litre grass box
It costs £639, £120 off the recommended price and again there is a free 10-litre steel jerry can.
It is delivered free the next working day with a bottle of engine oil to get you started and has a three year warranty.
