Ten top machines, mowers and garden tractors for a larger lawn

Recent rains have given the lawns a fresh lease of life, but to keep them looking their best you may like to consider raising the cutting height a notch.

This will leave a lush, verdant look to the grass and keep it healthy whatever autumn throws at us and this is especially so on larger lawns where there is no need to shave it down to within an inch of its life.

So if your old mower has started to show signs of giving up the ghost, here are ten top mowers and lawn tractors for larger lawns, all at the keenest prices.

And remember, we are the country’s leading retailer of ride-ons and lawn tractors with fast FREE delivery within a few days and even the next day for an additional payment.

Einhell LE-PM lawnmower
Tight turns: Einhell LE-PM Comfort Turn Lawnmower

The first mower is one made for larger areas of grass dotted with trees or garden benches.

The Einhell LR-PM 51S is designed to let you whizz around obstacles thanks to its front castor wheel which gives very precise turns without damaging the grass and also means there is no need to lift the mower round at the end of rows.

It lets you collect the cut grass and mulch it and for less formal areas you can discharge it at the back and sides.

The grass box holds 70 litres and is made for large lawns, say up to 1400m2.

It is powered by an Einhell 196cc engine and has a 51cm cutting width and eight cutting heights from 30mm to 80mm.

The mower has a two-year warranty and is delivered free the next day and costs only £249, a whopping £200 off the list price.

The Lawnflite 21 SPW-ES 4-in-1 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower with Electric Start is exclusive to MowDirect and starts at the turn of a key, no tugging on a starter cord.
