Seven Wonders – My Top Ride-on Mowers for the Spring – Including one for under £1000

Ah. The new seven wonders of the world, the great wall of China, Machu Picchu, The Colosseum of Rome, Donald Trump’s hair (which I am told you can see from space). ‘But enough of this frivolity, what are the new seven wonders of the ride-on mower world?’ I hear you ask eagerly with just a hint of irritation.

And funnily enough, I was about to tell you anyway. This collection of my favourite seven sit-on mowers is hand-picked for British gardens and chosen for value, performance and quality. So here come the wonders.

Standing proud in its stylish orange and black livery, like a grass-cutting Maclaren F1 race- car, the Feider FRT-7550M Ride-On Lawn Mower is one of the most powerful in its class with power provided by a high-capacity 4-stroke, 432cc air-cooled OHV engine for quiet, low emission, fuel-efficient operation.

It delivers collection, mulching and rear-discharge and 6 cutting heights from 20 to 90mm by means of an ergonomically positioned lever. The gears, 5 forward and 1 reverse, combined with its compact size make the Feider FRT-7550M very manoeuvrable and easy to handle on varying terrain and the 76cm cutting width means ideal coverage of lawns up to 4000m2.

This little wonder costs a mere £1,199 – an amazing price for a machine of this quality and includes FREE delivery, either fully assembled, tuned and tested in 2-3 working days or next working day with minimum assembly.

Next on my list is a superb beast of a ride-on, the Stiga 3398H Twin-Cylinder Lawn Tractor. This Swedish wonder is well-tuned, powerful and well constructed, just like an ABBA song. Also, and unlike an ABBA song, it is powered by Briggs & Stratton 656cc, 7200-Series Intek V-twin engine for optimum power and durability with low-vibration, great fuel-economy and fewer emissions.

This hard-working, and well featured, lawn tractor sports high-end features like a deck wash port for cleaning the cutting deck, a 240-litre grass collector with a ‘container full’ warning buzzer. It also has a foot-pedal-controlled hydrostatic drive rather like an automatic transmission, wide tyres that will not damage the lawn and a tow-bar is included.

All this comes at the very attractive price of £2,599, a saving of £200 on the list price, with FREE 2-3 working day delivery.

Now two wonderful and well-loved machines from the UK’s favourite, and best-selling, ride-on brand Mountfield.

The Mountfield 827M Compact Lawn Rider is a little gem with a 66cm cutting width and is carefully designed to fit through narrow gateways and entrances and handle very well in small spaces.

A five-speed gear-box (4 forward 1 reverse) enables you to adjust speed according to grass-length and terrain and the 150-ltr grass collector can be emptied without dismounting.

There are six cutting heights, adjustable from 30 to 80mm and, for extra versatiltiy, a mulching kit is avalable as an added option.

Our customers enthuse about this neat and tidy machine and say such things as… ‘fantastic machine’, ‘excellent’, ‘great little machine with big capability’ and ‘value for money‘.

This popular machine costs just £1,299, saving £100 on the RRP, and includes FREE, premium delivery as standard.

The other mighty Mountfield in my selection is the 84cm cutting width, Mountfield 1330M Lawn Tractor, a very popular machine and one of the best bargains on our books at an amazingly low price!

This great tractor is already 4.5 star rated and is picking up fans for its build quality, features and its unique, specially designed cutting deck, twin-bladed for clever tracking of variations in the lawn surface to keep the cut even and avoid scalping. The blades contra-rotate to create a high-speed flow of air that drives clippings through the discharge-chute into the grass-catcher, for bagging, even with damp grass. this tractor is unique as the only machine with a cutting width under 90cm to carry this feature

It also features a washing port to clear debris from the cutting deck, an audible grass-bag full indicator, headlights, cup holder, ergonomic step-through design and is a total delight to drive and operate with its cofortable seat, easy steering and powerful, high-performance 4-stroke OHV engine.

Surprisingly, this high-end featured machine comes in at just £1,599 That’s a saving to you of £200 on the list price and includes FREE premium Service, 2-3 working day delivery and a 3-year warranty.

Now, a MowDirect New & Exclusive. This excellent Racing 62PR Ride -on mower costs just £999 and subsequently, this ride-on is flying out of the door at the moment (not literally, that’s one feature too far). But it’s not just the price, amazing as it is, that is getting customers going.

The Racing 62PR is very compact with a 61cm cutting-width so it’s easy to work around and amongst bushes, benches or other obstacles, and also possible to travel easily and safely through narrow gateways.

And added to this it is well-built and robust, with a durable steel cutter-deck and a fuel-efficient 196cc (6.5hp) four-stroke OHV engine with electric-start .

For just £999? We doubt very much whether you can find a similarly specced machine at anywhere near this price, and don’t forget FREE NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY is included. You will need to do about 20-40 mins of simple assembly. See the product page for more details.

Next is the Lawnflite 380 XT-S, another popular machine from a well-known brand. It has a 96cm cutting width with a 96cm cutting width but an incredibly tight turning radius for maximum manoeuvrability.

Cutting heights range from 30mm to 95mm and it features anti-scalp deck wheels and an adjustable seat for comfort.

A 420cc MTD engine with transmatic transmission allows easy speed changing with no gear stick to worry about. A mulch kit and a twin bag collectorare available as extras.

As one very happy customer has said…’Service from Mowdirect was excellent from answering my questions to delivering…the first time we have purchased a lawn tractor, we have a small, but bumpy meadow which was very overgrown, the Lawnflite 380 XT-S handled it no problem.’

The price is a refreshingly low £1499, saving £300 from the recommended price and Delivery is FREE within 2-3 working days.

And finally, a magnificent range topping ride-on mower that not only covers large lawns but puts classic stripes on them as well.
