Hints & Tips
Easter approaches, the first major gardening weekend of the year, when you realise just how much work there is to do.
It was impossible to do anything during most of the winter because of the bitter weather, so now there are loads of jobs to do.
Not least, the lawn.
A neatly-trimmed lawn sets off the garden better than anything else and for those of you contemplating the first cut, here are a couple of top quality mowers from British company Hayter, a firm which has been making top machines for years.
For a small to medium-sized lawn, the Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear-Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619J) is an excellent choice, especially as it will leave a striped finish.
With its 41cm cutting width and aluminium cutting deck, this is a mower made for a long life, and it is powered by a Briggs & Stratton 125cc engine, easy to start and with low emissions levels.
With this one, you can cut right down to 13mm for a close, tight finish and it has a 55-litre grass box.
It has also been designed with a friction disc to prevent damage to the crank should you hit a really solid object.
‘I am very pleased with this mower which was delivered next day as promised. The mower quality is very good and the materials used are high end as you would expect,’ that from a recent customer. Other reviews are here.
The recommended price is £499 but we are selling it for £419 with FREE DELIVERY the next working day and a bottle of oil to get you started straight away.
For a larger lawn, this one is hard to beat.
The Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive Rear-Roller Lawnmower with Variable Speed (Code: 490) has a 48cm cutting width making it suitable for areas up to 1000m2.
This one has a 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine which is very easy to start and has been engineered for a long life.
It has seven cutting heights from 13mm to 60mm and has a cutting deck lined with ABS plastic to resist corrosion and dampen the noise.
And it also has a friction disc to prevent dame to the crank.
The grass box holds a massive 70 litres so you can keep mowing for longer.
‘What a fantastic mower bought after plenty of research as to getting stripes on my lawn. It is brilliant, with a steel rear roller the stripes are great also the cut has made my lawn more even all over so I am very pleased…’ says one purchaser.
This mower costs £849, £130 off the recommended price. comes with FREE oil and has a five-year warranty.
It is delivered free of charge within two to three working days with a FREE five-litre Jerry can.
But before you get down to cutting your lawn you should consider scarifying it – teasing out moss and dead grass which prevents new growth flourishing.
And yet again Hayter have the answer with this, the Hayter SP36 Petrol Lawn Scarifier (110J).
Fifteen cutting blades tease out the debris and there are five height settings for these.
The blades are driven by a 155cc Briggs & Stratton engine made to start on the first pull of the starter cord.
The machine is built around a steel deck to give it great strength and a long life.
We deliver it FREE OF CHARGE within two to three working days with a free bottle of oil and a one-year warranty and it costs £510, £180 less than the recommended price.
