Hints & Tips
Think of lawnmowers and the name which comes to mind for many people is Mountfield.
Their mowers are reliable, sturdy and easy to start, and here at MowDirect we have an exclusive range of their machines – there is bound to be one to suit most lawns.
For the ones we have on our site, have a look here. To start with, there is the Mountfield HP180 Petrol Rotary Hand-Propelled Lawnmower, a machine with a 45cm cutting width suitable for small to medium-sized lawns up to around 800m2.
It is light to push along and easy to cut around flower beds and along lawn edges and it weighs only 25kg.
A Briggs & Stratton 125cc engine powers the cutting blade and high rear wheels make it easy to navigate.
It has a 55-litre grass box and is a good collector of grass thanks to its specially-designed cutting deck.
Cutting heights are from 20mm to 70mm with five settings.It costs £199, £100 of the recommended price and is delivered free the next working day with a two-year warranty.
‘Great Lawnmower. This is an excellent lawnmower for the price. Only need to assemble the handle bars and the grass collection container. Recommend. MowDirect are a great company to purchase from.’ So says a recent purchaser.
The Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is a similar machine but with the benefit if self-propulsion.
It has the same reliable 125cc Briggs & Stratton engine powerful enough to handle sloping lawns and thicker grass with the same cutting heights from 20mm to 70mm and a 55-litre grass box.
This sturdy little mower costs £249, again, £100 less than the recommended price and we deliver it free of charge the next working day with a two-year warranty.
‘Very good product, good value and easy to assemble,’ was a recent review from a customer.
The striped lawn epitomises the British garden but to achieve this look you need a mower with a rear roller,
And these next two have just that.
First, the Mountfield HP180R Petrol Push Rear-Roller has a 46cm cutting width so it is ideal for a lawn around 600m2.
This one is powered by Mountfield’s own 100cc engine, a very easy starter, and has five cutting heights from 20mm to 70mm.
And being a rear roller mower, you can cut very close top lawn edges without the worry that the machine will topple into the flower bed.
It has a steel skid plate to prevent you scalping the lawn, a very handy feature.
The grass box holds 55 litres and has an indicator to show when it is full.
It costs £319, £80 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty with free next working day delivery.
The Mountfield SP180R Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower is another rear roller mower with Mountfield’s own 100cc engine with a 46cm cutting width.
It has a 55-litre grass box with an indicator to show when it needs emptying and whereas the previous mower was a hand-propelled one, this has an engine to do all the hard work for you.
It also has a wash port on the cutting deck – just attach a garden hose and run the engine for a while to clean it out.
‘Very Good Product. Very Good Service. For the open spaces of the lawn it’s superb and makes the job effortless,’ said one customer.
It costs £399, £100 off the recommended price and has a two-year warranty with free delivery the next working day.
The Mountfield SP533 Self-Propelled 3-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower (Special Offer) has the company’s own 160cc engine with bags of power to tackle thicker areas of grass and sloping lawns.
This one has cutting heights from 25mm to 90mm and a large 50-litre grass box. And there is also a mulch plug so you can mulch the cut grass.
Mulching is when the grass is held in the cutting deck for longer where it is chopped into tiny pieces before it drops back to the lawn, rotting away to become useful nutrient.
And it has a powder-coated finish to resist corrosion and prolong the machine’s working life.
This has proved to be a best seller for some time and has a string of positive reviews.
‘Very pleased with the mower and at the special price it is very good value which is unbeatable for the cut width and engine size. This replaced another Mountfield I had for many years and glad I chose the more powerful engine as there is a noticeable difference. ‘MowDirect advice and service was excellent,’ said one.
It costs £329, £130 less than the price recommended and it has a three-year warranty and free next working day delivery.
