Hints & Tips
With the grass now growing quickly, it’s time to get mowing.
And here’s a mower with a wide cutting width made for large lawns up to around 1500m2 which is great value for money, new for this year and exclusive to MowDirect.
With a really high spec, the Racing 5073T 4-in-1 Hi-Wheel Self-Propelled Lawnmower is a powerful machine with a 173cc engine developing 4.3hp.
That gives it bags of power to deal with the rougher areas of grass like you’d find in small orchards and also with sloping lawns which some mowers might find hard to climb.
With larger drive wheels it is easy to navigate around these areas and has plenty of grip and it has six cutting heights from 20mm to 70mm, but don’t be tempted to cut the grass too short to start with.
It also gives you the option of collecting the grass in a 65-litre grass box, mulching it when conditions allow or discharging to the back or side when appearance is not so important.
The grass box has an indicator to show when it needs emptying and it has a throttle control when you need a little more oomph.
This is a very solid mower with a steel cutting deck which has a wash port to make it easier to clean down when you’ve finished for the day.
The recommended price is £399 but we have it for sale for £279 with FREE next working day delivery and a two-year warranty.
You also get a free cover and a free spare blade and you can buy a leaf collector for an extra £39.
Another made for really large lawns – up to 2000m2 – is this one from a leading European manufacturer.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower has a 196cc Emak engine making it very powerful.
This one also lets you collect the cut grass or mulch it and you can discharge to the side and back.
Cutting heights are from 28mm to 75mm with six options and it has large 280mm drive wheels to give great grip on sloping lawns and the rougher areas.
It has a massive 70-litre grass box.
It costs £349.95, £200 off the recommended price and is delivered FREE OF CHARGE the next working day with a five-year warranty.
It has attracted a host of good reviews. ‘The machine works well and is good value for money. It gives a nice wide cut and I particularly like the side discharge. I h3-acre3 acre field with rough grass that I cut but just leave the grass in the field to mulch. ‘Good service provided by MowDirect.’
That’s just one of the reviews of this popular mower.

“Honest advice, no sales pitch…I looked around in the internet a bit and found MowDirect which was coming up with the best prices. Phoned them up and spoke to someone who gave me advice about the difference between models and helped me make my own mind up without sales pressure. I am delighted with my purchase and it has made my work so much easier.” B. Garside (TRUSTPILOT)
