Lawnmowers, hedgetrimmers, brushcutters, we’ve got the lot at the best prices. Even a lawn tractor for playing-fields and parks.
So have a look at these bargains selected from the best machinery manufacturers around the world, often exclusive to MowDirect and many new for this year.
This first mower is, indeed, new and exclusive to MowDirect and has proved to be one of the bargains of the summer.
Packed with great features the MowMaster 43PD 3-in-1 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower is made with small to medium-sized lawns in mind and lets you either collect the cut grass, dump it at the back of the mower or mulch it.
With these features it is suitable for smooth lawns as well as the rougher areas and it has larger rear wheels to cope with this.
The grass box holds 40 litres, the engine has a 123cc capacity and it has a special port to which you can attach a garden hose to clean it out after each use.
This great little mower with a cutting width of 43cm and five cutting heights costs just £179 compared with the recommended price of £249.
We deliver it free the next working day with a two-year warranty…and a bottle of free oil.
‘Masterly Mow from Mowmaster‘ was a recent comment from a satisfied customer.
The next one is from a leading German machinery company, and it’s the Einhell GC-PM 46 S-M Self-Propelled 4-Wheeled Petrol Lawnmower.

Also from the same manufacturer is the Einhell GC-PM 47 SHW 5-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower, new and exclusive and with a wider 47cm cutting width so it can tackle larger lawns.

If you want a healthy lawn you will need to scarify it regularly to tease out moss and dead grass and flat-growing weeds which inhibit new growth.
And this neat little machine will not only do that but aerate the surface as well to allow moisture and nutrients to penetrate to the roots of the plants.
The Einhell GE-SA 1335P Petrol Combi Scarifier / Aerator has two easy-to-change cassettes.
The first has a roller with 20 knives to cut small slits into the lawn; the second has 26 spikes to tease out all the debris and let new growth flourish.
The machine has a 53.2 petrol engine to drive which ever roller you are using and it has three working depths so you can be as severe as you like but don’t be too ambitious to start with as you will be surprised how much debris is pulled out.
The deck of the machine is made from plastic which keeps the weight down and resists corrosion.
The recommended price is £399.95 but we have it in our sale for £249.95 with FREE next working day delivery FREE oil and a two-year warranty.
‘Very Good Product, Excellent Service‘ was a recent customer’s comment.
You can’t have failed to have noticed the increasing number of household appliances powered by batteries. And garden machinery is no different.
So have a look at these garden products which use the latest lithium-ion battery technology and which we helped to develop.
These batteries charge rapidly and retain their charge when not in use. They are also much lighter and less polluting.
The Redback E522DQ-2Ah Cordless Hedgetrimmer illustrates the point, a 40V cutter which delivers performance of many petrol machines but is much lighter and easier to use.
It has two 56cm dual-reciprocating blades and a rear handle which rotates making it easier to deal with hedge sides and odd shapes and it also makes it easier for left-handers to use.
It is fitted with a deflector to move the cut stems out of the way so you can see what you are cutting.
“Making Light Work of a Tall Order…cuts as well as anything I’ve used in its class.” said one customer recently. It comes complete with battery and charger and a battery belt to hold the battery when the machine is in use.
It costs £169 and is delivered FREE the next working day with a three-year warranty.
Another product from the same stable has the solution when it comes to deal with lawn edges.
The Redback E312DQ-2Ah Cordless Grass-Trimmer is light and quiet and efficient with a 40V battery powering a trimming head which has 1.6mm twisted cutting line to trim back grass edges.
The head has a protector so you don’t cut off the heads of flowers in the borders.
The cutting head tilts and pivots on the lightweight aluminium shaft which can be adjusted to suit the height of the user.
“The build quality is good, and the performance excellent!” said one happy customer. It comes with a 2Ah battery, charger and a battery belt and it has a three-year warranty.
The costs is £179 compared with the recommended price of £276 and delivery the next working day is free.
And finally three great machines for those of you lucky enough to have larger lawns.
First is this great little Lawnflite 2-in-1 Ride-On Mower designed with areas around 2000m2 in mind.
With its 60cm cutting width it is really easy to drive with a 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine started with a key.
It has Transmatic transmission which lets you shift gear on the move and has cutting heights from 38mm to 95mm.
It will mulch the clippings on formal areas and discharge them to the sides where appearance is not so important.
The price is £1099, a massive £300 saved on the recommended price and has a two-year warranty and free Premium Delivery within two to three working days.
But for an extra fee you can order by 3pm, even on Friday, and have it delivered the following day.
The next one is from a favourite British brand and aimed at lawns a little larger, say around 5000m2.
The Mountfield 1530M Lawn Tractor is a British favourite with an84cm cutting width and twin blades to give a very even finish.
It will cut down to 25mm and up to 80mm with seven settings and it has a grass box which will hold 240 litres.
And when it’s full it will bleep at you to let you know it needs emptying.
It is powered by Mountfield’s own 452cc engine and has six gars, five forward and one reverse.
It is a very comfortable tractor to drive with an adjustable high-backed sprung seat and the grass box can be emptied without leaving the driverâ€™s seat and all the controls are very easy to reach and there is a pair of headlights so you can keep working when it gets murky.
A deflector kit and mulch plug are available as optional extras as is a tow bar.
It costs £1699, Â£200 off the recommended price and it has a five-year warranty and SPECIAL OFFER – The option of FREE next working day and FREE Saturday delivery for a limited time only, as well as FREE delivery within two to three working days.
The Simplicity Contender SZT550 Commercial Zero-Turn Ride-On Mower is from a leading manufacturer in the USA and is powered by a 724cc Briggs & Stratton engine for bags of power.
It is the sort of machine you will find dealing with playing fields and park land and can turn on the spot thanks to its front castor wheels.
The cutting deck is 132cm wide so it can cut large areas at each pass but it won’t scalp lawns and turf as the deck is fitted with small wheels to follow the contours of the ground.
Cut grass is laid out to the right but you can fit a mulch plug, which is supplied, for the more formal areas.
It is a very comfortable machine to drive with an adjustable seat and even cruise control for the very long runs.
There are 12 cutting heights adjusted by a foot pedal and it has a front bumper to avoid damage should a tree jump out in front of you.
“Great machine, rock solid. Currently about half the price of similar alternatives”. That’s the view of an existing owner.
It is priced at £4499, a staggering £2500 saved on the recommended price and is delivered FREE of charge within three to five working days with a two-year warranty.
