Hints & Tips
Peer over garden fences and the one thing that sets one property off from another is a neatly trimmed lawn.
And the lawn which has neat stripes announces to the world that here lives a family with standards.
You only get decent stripes with a mower with a rear roller. Others will leave stripes where the mower has passed but these fade within a day or two.
So if you want a lawn which stands out from the crowd, these models from Lawnflite will give great results.
For a lawn up to around 800m2 this one will do the trick, the Lawnflite 18SPR Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower.
With an 18in cutting width it has a 135cc engine and cutting heights from 17mm to 75mm with seven settings. In general, rear roller mowers can cut far shorter than traditional rotary ones.
A 60-litre box will collect the clippings and this has an indicator to show when it is full.
“Overall an excellent mower with 7 cut levels. You don’t even get this on more expensive mowers.” That’s according to a recent purchaser. Other reviews are here.
New and exclusive to MowDirect it costs £299, £100 off the recommended price and it has a two-year warranty and comes with FREE oil.
If you have a larger lawn, say around 1200m2 this may well be the mower you need, the
Lawnflite 20SPR Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower.
This has a larger 173cc engine and a cutting width of 50cm and cuts right down to 17mm.
The grass box has an indicator to show when it is full and like the previous model has a steel cutting deck to give it a long life and strength.
Again, new and exclusive, it costs £399, £100 off the recommended price and is delivered free the next working day with FREE oil and a two-year warranty.
And similar to the one above is the Lawnflite 20SPR-ES Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower with Electric Start.
No tugging on a start cord with this one, just turn the key and away you go.
This one is priced at £499, £100 below the price recommended and is delivered FREE the next working day with a two-year warranty and FREE oil.
