Hints & Tips
With fog, frost and even snow in places the weather doesn’t exactly encourage you to jump in the car and visit the sales.
But if it’s a gardening bargain you’re after just log on to our sales page where there are 50 great deals on garden machinery from a humble mower or hedge trimmer to a lawn tractor.
Here’s a selection of the bargains available to remind you that warmer weather and brighter days are on their way.
With this one, you are actually buying several tools on one.
The Mitox 171MT Petrol Multi-Tool is based on a 25.4cc engine and a solid shaft to which various devices can be attached.
First, there is a grass strimmer for cutting lawn and path edges and thicker growth.
It is dead easy to use with a loop handle which makes it easier to reach places like the back of sheds.
But if you want to cut down more serious undergrowth like banks of established nettles or brambles, then fit the 25cm three-toothed metal blade.
For hedges there is a hedgetrimmer with 40cm double-side blades which turn through 90 degrees so you can cut sides and difficult shapes as well as long straight runs.
You can also buy a 77.5cm extension to the shaft for the tops of high hedges for an extra £30.
The regular price for this device is £199 but in our sale we have reduced it to £149.
Delivery is free and there is a two-year warranty.
Nothing evokes the Christmas spirit like an open fire with crackling logs and here’s a log splitter from the same company.
The Mitox LS45 Electric Log-Splitter is fitted with a 1500V electric motor to power a hydraulic ram which forces logs against a splitting wedge with 4.5 tons of pressure.
It can handle loge up to 52cm long and will save a damaged back which is always a possibility when swinging a hefty axe.
This splitter has a return control valve to allow the user to decide how far back the splitting block returns before the next log, so saving a lot of time.
It is supplied with five metres of cable and you can also buy a stand for the machine to save crouching or bending.
This splitter costs £199 in our sale, £40 off the regular price, has a two-year warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
Now’s a good time to get to work on the allotment or vegetable garden as winter frost on freshly turned soil will kill off lots of the bugs which can devastate crops and that’s experience talking!
So to make digging loads easier we have this machine in our sale, the Einhell BG-MT 3360-LD Petrol Tiller / Cultivator.
Designed by a leading German garden machinery company this tiller has six steel cultivator blades to turn over even heavy clay soils or compacted ground.
It also has a set of crop protection discs so you can till between the rows when the plants are growing.
Powering it along is a 163cc engine, quiet when in use and designed to give a long working life.
It is also fitted with a transport wheel making it easier to get from job to job. This wheel tilts up when the tiller is working. You can adjust the depth by altering the brake skid at the back.
A deadman’s handle stops the engine when it is realeased and stop the cultivator trundling across neighbouring plots if you lose control.
In our sale it costs £249.95 and we deliver it free. And it has a two-year warranty.
Here’s another from Mitox, a log splitter made for serious amounts of hard work on denser, twisted wood.
The Mitox LS700BS Multisplit Petrol Log-Splitter will be useful for wood merchants and houses where large amounts of wood are burned.
It uses a 6.5hp Briggs & Stratton engine to produce seven tons of splitting power and lets you adjust the distance the splitting block needs to travel, a great time saver.
It can handle logs up to 104cm long and being an upright machine is much easier to use.
It costs £899 in our sale and we deliver it free within two to three days of processing your order.
It has a two year warranty.
And this machine can really make a difference to your lawn by letting it breathe.
The Einhell GE-SA 1335P Petrol Combi Scarifier / Aerator has two steel rollers.
One has 20 knives to cut small slits into the lawn to allow moisture to get through to the roots.
While the second has 26 spikes to tease out flat-growing weeds, moss and dead grass which will suffocate new growth.
Driving it is a 53.2cc engine giving 1.7hp.
There are three working depths and the plastic deck will resist corrosion and keep the weight down. The handlebar is adjustable to suit the person using it.
In our sale it costs £199.95 and it has a two-year warranty. And we deliver it free the next working day.
These are just a few of the machines from our sale which you can see here.
