Hints & Tips
Bitter outside; snow’s falling and the easterly wind is freezing. What better time to talk about lawnmowers.
For once this snow melts and the days warm up, lawns will really grow, especially if given a little fertilizer and scarified.
Make sure you are prepared for the growth and if you need a new mower, here are a couple of new and exclusive machines with great features and at very keen prices.
Made with lawns around 1600m2 in mind – that’s a medium to large-sized lawn – the Herkules LMG48SHL-B 4-in-1 Self-Propelled Lawnmower has the maker’s own 139cc engine, mean on fuel and emissions.
It is really versatile, as it lets you discharge the cut grass to the side or back when trimming back rougher patches and collects and mulches the grass on more formal areas.
The cutting width is 48cm and the grass box holds 65 litres with an indicator to show when it needs emptying.
There is a wash port so it is easy to clean underneath at the end of the day and it has a carrying handle to make it easier to pick up and transport.
It costs £279, £70 off the recommended price and we deliver it free of charge the next working day with a two-year warranty.
That mower has a bigger brother, the Herkules LMG53SHL-C 4-in-1 Variable-Speed Lawnmower.
This one has a wider cutting width of 53cm and is made for larger lawns around 2000m2.
It also lets you decide the speed at which you want to mow, so you can speed up on the straights and slow for the corners and complicated bits like curving lawn edges.
It has a 173cc engine and again lets you choose between collecting and mulching and discharging to the back and side.
There is a selection of cutting heights adjusted by a single lever and it has large drive wheels for easy navigation. And the grass box holds 65 litres.
It too has a wash port for cleaning down at the end of the day and a carrying handle.
This one costs £359, £140 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty with free delivery the next working day.
If you prefer a battery-powered lawnmower this one from a UK company is worth a second look.
The EGO LM2024E-SP Power+ Self-Propelled Cordless Lawnmower has a 6Ah lithium-ion battery which has a run time of 45 minutes and a charge time of only 45 minutes.
The working speed is adjustable and it has a steel cutting deck to make it a very solid mower.
This mower lets you collect of mulch the cut grass or discharge it to the side.
It has a working width of 50cm and a 60-litre grass box and the handlebars are adjustable to three heights.
And there are six cutting heights from 25mm to 95mm and you can stand it on end to clean it.
Including battery and charger, the mower costs £649, £30 off the recommended price and it is delivered free the next working day with a five-year warranty.
Other gardening equipment in the range is much cheaper as you already have battery and charger.
