Hints & Tips
Reliability. Now there’s a word. Important when buying a car and equally so when looking for a new mower.
And this is where this well-established manufacturer scores heavily especially with these two, both exclusive to MowDirect and on sale at the keenest of prices when compared with other mowers with a similar specification.
And both have steel cutting decks which mean they are very rigid, solid mowers capable of tackling the thickest grass and roughest areas.
This one has been a popular best seller with us for several years now.
The Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower has a 45cm-wide steel cutting deck so it can tackle areas up to 800m2.
Mountfield’s own 148cc engine starts easily and gives plenty of power to climb sloping lawns.
Five cutting heights from 20mm to 70mm and a large grass box means you can cut large areas and leave the finish you want. And being self-propelled it makes lawn cutting less tiring.
As we said, this has been a popular mower for some time and to see what other customers think of it see these reviews.
It costs £249, £100 less than the price recommended by the manufacturer and it has a two-year warranty. It also comes with a FREE bottle of oil.
Delivery to any address on the UK mainland is free and your mower will arrive the next working day after receiving your order.
Now one for those of you who liked a striped finish to your lawn – remember you can only achieve this with a machine fitted with a roller at the back.
The Mountfield SP42R Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower is a machine exclusive to us and on special offer and will give you this iconic look.
This one has a Mountfield RS100 100cc engine which is comparatively quiet and low on engine emissions.
The cutting width is 42cm making it suitable for lawns up to 500m2.
It has a large 55-litre grass box and will mow right up to the lawn edges without fear of toppling into the flower borders – another advantage of a mower with a rear roller which gives greater stability.
The metal cutter deck has a powder-coated finish to resist corrosion and help prolong the mower’s life.
This machine costs £349, £50 off the recommended price and is delivered FREE he next working day with a FREE bottle of engine oil to get you started straight away.
And it has a two-year maker’s warranty.
Spring is on the way, although there are days when it still seems but a dream, and if you are looking for a new order it pays to order one in advance so you can have it assembled and ready to go when the weather allows.
