Hints & Tips
With warm weather forecast for the coming week, most of us will need to cut the lawn at some time and here are three great value-for-money mowers from Einhell, a leading German garden machinery manufacturer.
These mowers area solid and well engineered with plenty of power to tackle wet autumn conditions.
The GC-PM 46 S-M Self-Propelled 4-Wheeled Petrol Lawnmower has the company’s own 139cc engine and a 46cm cutting width, enough to tackle a medium to large-sized lawn.
The grass box holds 50 litres, the petrol tank 1.3 litres and cutting heights are from 30mm to 90mm with nine settings.
A mulch kit is included, but make sure the grass is dry before you use it.
It costs £249.95, is delivered free of charge the next working day following receipt of you order and has a two year maker’s warranty.
The Einhell GC-PM 46/2 SHW-E Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower with Electric Key Start has a 139cc engine which uses battery power to start it.
And the battery automatically charges itself using the motion of the wheels once it gets going.
Larger rear wheels mean it can handle longer, thicker grass as well as lawns and it also has plenty of power to take on sloping areas.
The chassis and cutting deck are powder coated to resist corrosion and give the mower a longer life.
Clippings can either be collected in the 70-litre grass box or discharged at the back while a front grass comb smooth the lawn before it is trimmed leading to a neater finish – the cutting width is 46cm.
This mower is priced at £299.95, £100 below the recommended retail price, delivery is free the next working day and there is a two-year warranty from Einhell.
And the Einhell GC-PM 51/2 SHW-E 4-in-1 (with Electric Start) is in many ways a similar machine, but this one has a wider, 51cm, cutting width.
This means that if you have a larger lawn you can whizz round it more quickly once you turned the key and fired it up.
This is another high-wheel mower enabling rougher areas to be tackled with cutting heights from 30mm to 80mm and six settings.
A 173cc engine gives you all the power you need for slopes and thicker, less well-tended areas.
It costs £399.95, £150 under the recommended price and has a two-year warranty with free next working day delivery.
We have a really wide choice of mowers on our site from the smallest hand-propelled ones right up to the biggest selection of ride-ons and lawn tractors you’ll find anywhere, many with Saturday delivery for a small extra sum.
And you can order up to 3pm on Friday for Saturday delivery.
