Hints & Tips
We talked on Monday about a great Mountfield mower designed to leave a striped finish.
But what do you do if you have a really large lawn which needs the attention of a lawn tractor and want stripes?
Well, here’s the answer, the Simplicity Regent XL/SLT200 Garden Tractor (with Striping Roller).
This has a really wide 117cm cutting deck making it suitable for areas up to 12,000m2 – that’s around three acres.
The secret is the striping roller which leaves the finish many people would like on really large lawns and yet is just about impossible using a similar lawn tractor.
A Briggs & Stratton 724cc Intek twin-cylinder engine provides the power but without high fuel costs and vibration levels and has been designed for a long life with cast iron cylinder sleeves.
If you’ve an area like this chances are them will be sections where a perfect finish is not necessary and here you can use it in side-discharge mode, laying the cut grass in neat rows.
The cutting deck is free floating so it follows the contours of the lawn to give a regular cut without scalping.
And you can also use the tractor to tow other garden equipment like rakes and leaf collectors and fertiliser spreaders without having to get out the tool box.
In use this is a very comfortable tractor to drive with a padded seat and cruise control – and there is even a cup holder should the driver feel in need of refreshment.
The transmission is hydrostatic so you can adjust your speed precisely much like an automatic car with no need to change gear.
And with this tractor you receive a FREE mulch kit.
The cost is £2799, £400 below the recommended price and delivery is FREE, usually within four to six working days. But that’s not all. The delivery is via our Premium Delivery Service, so your tractor arrives to your door assembled, tested, tuned, cleaned and ready to go. You even get a FREE bottle of oil. It has a two-year warranty from the manufacturer.
