Hints & Tips
The dank, drizzly days are not best suited to a day’s gardening, but this is a good time of year to take stock of your gardening gear – if only to add something for your list for Santa.
And this is a great time to think about renewing your old garden tractor if it’s getting past its best.
And yes it is a very generous present but remember that garden tractors are used all year round with the correct attachments.
So if you are thinking of buying a new one, then have a look at this, the Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor.
From Britain’s favourite garden machinery manufacturer, this tractor has a cutting width of 84cm so it can cut really large areas quickly an efficiently.
And with its twin cutting blades it produces a strong current of air under the cutting deck to blast clippings, even wet ones, into the 240-litre grass box at the rear.
Cutting heights are from 25mm for the lawns in summer up to 80mm for the longer less formal areas. And the twin cutting blades leave a really beautiful finish.
When the grass box is full it makes a loud beep to tell you it needs emptying, a very useful feature. And it can emptied with a liver and without leaving the driving seat.
Mountfield’s own 452cc engine provides the power and there are five forward and one reverse gears. The fuel tank holds six litres.
It is also a very comfortable tractor to drive with padded, high-back seat which is adjustable.
It runs on chunky tyres with excellent grip and has a pair of powerful headlights, handy for when it gets gloomy.
You can but a deflector plate for use when cutting long grass and a mulch plug for use when it’s dry in the summer months and a tow bar which gives the tractor a complete new lese of life.
It is priced at £1699, £200 off the recommended price and has a give-year warranty.
Delivery is free within two to three working days.
But for an extra fee you can order by up to 3pm on a Friday and be cutting grass on the Saturday.
