Hints & Tips
With weather forecast to warm up for the weekend, so now is a great time to concentrate on the lawn and its edges.
The grass is really putting on a spurt at the moment and needs to be trimmed back to keep it looking neat and tidy through the late autumn and here’s a robust mower from a German company which will do the trick.
The Al-Ko 51BR Comfort Power-Driven Petrol Combi Lawn Mower is a powerful machine with a 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine and a 51cm cutting width making it suitable for lawns up to 2000m2.
And it can handle the rough and the smooth, letting you collect and mulch clippings on formal lawns and discharge them at the back where appearance is not so important.
With the bigger engine it can handle slopes and more challenging areas with ease.
And its ‘Ultramow’ cutting deck is made from a single piece of steel to give a strong airflow and assist in the collection of the cut grass when it is a bit damp. This deck has a five-year domestic warranty.
Cutting heights can be adjusted from 25mm to 75mm and it has a grass box which holds 65 litres with an indicator so you’ll know when it needs to be emptied.
It costs £369, £110 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty from Al-Ko.
And for the scruffy edges, how about this for a great machine at a bargain price.
The Mitox 33L Petrol Brushcutter has a loop handle so you can get into the restricted spaces which would be difficult for one with chopped style handlebars.
The power is from a 32.6cc engine and it has a solid drive shaft for better power transfer. Extra trimming line can be fed out by simply bumping the head on the ground.
“This is a Great Product” was the comment of a recent purchaser.
It costs only £99 compared with the recommended price of £209 and we deliver it free the next working day with a two-year warranty.
You can also but an articulating hedge trimmer attachment for another £135, making it an even better bargain.
