Hints & Tips
We should be used to this by now. The summer all too often comes equipped with its own cold air blowers, water pistols and a blanket of grey gloom that makes Eeyore look jolly.
Yup. Subjectively, it isn’t a great summer so far. But let’s be positive, the barbecues will appear, the sausages will sizzle, the picnics will happen, the wasps will pester and large men with no shirts, cargo shorts and angry red chests will fill our glorious municipal parks and beaches once more. Hoorah!
However, what is beyond subjectivity is the fact that the grass is growing and that MowDirect offers great deals on all sorts of mowers.
Like the pair of tip-top tractors featured here, offering you quality and versatility at affordable prices from tried and trusted names, smart, robust and gleaming like the eyes of a child offered a chocolate ice-cream cone.
First up, the Big Yellow one. The Stiga Tornado 2098 is a great example of superior build and performance from the Swedish mower giants.
Power comes from a highly efficient OHV 4-stroke, air-cooled, 32cc Stiga 7050 engine; delivering 8.7hp. This means lower fuel-costs, low-vibration operation and fewer unpleasant exhaust-emissions.
A dual-function machine, this tractor gives you the ability to discharge or mulch.
The up-to-date ergonomic design means controls such as the height-of-cut control lever are in optimal position whilst adjustable high-back seat and raised soft-grip steering-wheel enhance comfort and reduce strain.
It has a six-speed manual gearbox (5 forward; 1 reverse), producing the right ground-speed for each situation; and a pivoting front axle that for a consistent finish on uneven terrain.
A deck and chassis cleaning hosepipe wash-point enable the removal of debris from the underside of the dec that can damage your machine and shorten its working life, and anti-scalp deck-wheels prevent damage to the turf-on inclined ground.
Other top end features include twin headlights and a safety contact-breaker that prevents start-up when the driver’s seat is vacant. There’s even a cup-holder to help you keep hydrated during mowing.

Number 2 on our short list is the Big Red one, from one of Britain’s favourite and most popular brands. The Mountfield 1330M Lawn Tractor is a classic lawn-tractor from a brand known for reliability and proven performance.
The first lawn-tractor in its cutting-width range to feature a high-specification twin-bladed cutter-deck; which tracks terrain for a consistent cut, avoiding scalping, the contra-rotating action of the blades delivers enhanced airflow shooting clippings twigs, an leaves into the large 200-litre grass-catcher, for optimal collection even in damp conditions. (leaves, twigs and other lightweight lawn debris will also be collected).
It sports a seven-position height-of-cut (25 – 80mm) and a 6-speed manual transmission (five forward and one reverse gear) to help suit the grass length and terrain-type.
It offers a very tight 180cm turning-radius keeping it very manoeuvrable and easy to drive.

Comfort and ease are also assured with the inclusion of a fully adjustable suspended driver’s seat, spring-assisted cutting-height control and simple, effective electronic push-button blade-engagement.
Large-diameter drive-wheels ensure scuff-free traction on your precious lawns and powerful twin headlights mean work hours can be extended in safety.
