Hints & Tips
So, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. And lawns soaked with dew each night as temperatures tumble and which stays there until lunchtime or possibly all day.
With the grass still growing strongly, lawns need to be trimmed once a week, but now is the time to raise the cutting height a little.
The main problem with grass cutting at the moment is collecting the clippings – some mowers are better with wet grass than others.
These two are solid mowers from a large company and are well up to the task when it comes to cutting autumn lawns.
Don’t be tempted to leave the odd clump of clippings – they will rot and still be there next spring. If necessary go over the affected areas again to collect the missed bits.
The Oleo-Mac G48-TK Comfort-Plus Petrol Self-Propelled Lawn Mower ideal for the medium sized lawn, say 800m2.
It has a 46cm cutting width and is powered by an Emak 140cc engine and has cutting heights from 28mm to 75mm and a 60 litre grass box. It trundles along at a comfortable 3.6 kmh.
And it has a three-year warranty.
“Excellent Mower“, “Great Product and Service” are two recent comments from customers. Other reviews are here.
It costs £219.95, a substantial £130 below the recommended price and is delivered FREE the next working day with FREE oil.
For bigger lawns up to 2000m2 this next one comes into its own, especially where large areas of longer grass needs sorting.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower lets you collect and mulch with cuttings on smooth lawns, but take care using the mulching facility when the grass is wet.
For paths, orchards and areas of rougher grass which need to be mown, the cut grass can be discharged at the back or the side.
This one has a really powerful 196cc engine and a 70-litre grass box. Cutting heights are from 28mm to 75mm.
