Hints & Tips
The grass is starting to grow and thicken up, a sure sign that the first cut is on the way.
Indeed, some have already ventured forth with the mower.
You can leave it a few weeks yet, but an early trim promotes healthy and more vigorous growth – much like pruning a rose or cutting back perennials.
If you need a new mower for a lawn around 1500m2, this one, new for this season and exclusive to MowDirect, is a must for the shortlist.
The Racing 5073T 4-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Lawnmower has a 173cc engine and a cutting width of 50cm.
As well as collecting the cut grass – there is a 65-litre grass box – this mower lets you discharge them to the side and back, useful when you are cutting areas where a close neat finish is not so important like small paddocks and orchards and grass paths.
The grass box had an indicator to show when you need to empty it.
And you can also mulch them and discharge straight back to the lawn when conditions allow. The larger, rear drive wheels make it easy to manoeuvre and give excellent grip on longer grass and rougher surfaces.
The cutting heights are between 20mm and 70mm, but for the first cut of the year only use one of the higher cuts to knock the whiskers off’ as some people say.
This is a solid mower with a steel cutting deck which also has a throttle control so you can increase the revs when going up sloping lawns or cutting thicker grass. It also has a wash port to make cleaning after use easier- just attach a garden hose and run the engine slowly.
There are a couple of useful accessories with this mower, a spare blade and a lawnmower cover worth £50.
This great mower costs £249, £150 off the recommended price, but this will be going up to £299 at the end of the month. So get it now and save £50!
We deliver it FREE the next working day and it has a two-year warranty and comes with FREE oil.
