Hints & Tips
Now is an ideal time to give you lawn an autumn trim. But first, a few words of advice.
Leave the cutting height really high, that way you will be left with a lush looking lawn. If you do this, you may well want to clip it again in a week’s time, but you will leave the lawn in top condition to face winter’s ravages.
Only cut half the cutting width of the mower at a time.
The lawn will inevitably be a bit damp, and wet clippings are always difficult to collect. This way there will be less chance of ‘clumping’ should they ball up in the chute on the way to the grass box and leave unsightly lumps on the lawn.
And empty the grass box more frequently as well.
Should you hear the engine start to struggle or a graunching noise from the cutter deck, stop immediately. There could well be hardened lumps of clippings in the cutter deck prevent the blade from revolving smoothly and this might cause damage to the engine.
Clear the cutting deck before starting again and don’t under any circumstances do this job with the engine still running.
Cutting the lawn at this time of year needs a powerful mower and this one should do the trick.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower has a 196cc Emak engine, really powerful yet with excellent fuel consumption and low emissions.
It will cut up to 75mm and down to 28mm so it can handle autumnal conditions and has a 70 litre grass box.
The cutting width is 53cm so even taking just half the width you can get the lawn cut quickly.
You can also discharge clippings to the back and side and can mulch the clippings when conditions allow, but you may have to wait until next summer to use the mulch plug.
