Hints & Tips
It’s got to be official now.
For some time we said that stripes were making a comeback and now the national press has endorsed the fact.
A striped finish to a lawn tells the world you care about your garden, you’re a perfectionist.
Just make sure the lines are perfectly parallel otherwise it will seem you’ve had one tincture too many before getting the mower out.
You can only get a striped lawn with a rear roller mower and we’ve a good selection on our site on these pages.
But for a small to medium-sized lawn, say up to 400m2 this one from a top British manufacturer is hard to beat.
The Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Push Rear-Roller Lawnmower (Code: 617) has been striping lawns in this country for years.
Really well built, it has a 125cc Briggs & Stratton engine which starts very easily.
The all-important rear roller is ribbed to give excellent traction and leave the much vaunted stripe but also means you can cut right up the lawn edges without fear it might topple into the flower beds.
Another great feature is the inclusion of front fins in the cuter deck which smoother and prepare the grass leading to a better finish.
Another feature of rear-roller mowers is the low cutting height – this one can go right down to 13mm.
The cutter bar has a friction disc to protect the crank in case you hit something really solid.
And the cutting deck is lined with ABS plastic which keeps the noise down and is helps prevent corrosion. It also keeps the noise down and helps with the airflow, in turn leading to better collection of the clippings.
Our reviews section has many positive comments from previous customers. One says “I bought this mower last year from MowDirect and I have to say, it’s my new best friend. So easy to use, starts a dream, cuts beautifully, rolls nice neat stripes on my substantial lawn and overall just feels like a sound solid machine.”
It costs £329 compared with the recommended price of £395 and we deliver it FREE with a FREE can of engine oil to get it started.
And it has a three-year warranty from Hayter.
