From a specialist British brand with a 40-year heritage, this well-equipped petrol roller-mower is available in the UK only through MowDirect and offers build-quality and features that belie its price-point.
Thanks to its rear-mounted roller, the Lawnflite 20SPR-ES not only produces that classic striped effect that’s so characteristic of the British lawn, it will also, unlike four-wheeled models, remain stable and upright when you’re mowing flush along the edges of vegetable-plots and flowerbeds.
The Lawnflite 20SPR-ES Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower comes powered by a 173cc Lawnflite air-cooled four-stroke engine with an OHV (overhead-valve) configuration for emission-reduction and excellent fuel-economy; and an electric starter that eliminates all hassle from the ignition-process.
It boasts self-propulsion (via the roller), so rough ground, undulations and inclines can all be covered with ease; and it comes with a large, productivity-maximising 60-litre catcher with a ‘collector full’ indicator flap that lets you know when emptying is imminent so as to prevent chute-blockage and clippings-spillage (a hard top on the bag keeps dust down in dry summer conditions).
In order to help you refine your finish and to deal with varying grass-lengths, Lawnflite have furnished the 20SPR-ES with seven cutting-height positions, which are simple to select using a centralised adjustment-mechanism.
A steel cutter-deck confers superior durability and provides a solid platform for the rest of the machine; while plastic covers on the handgrips help to reduce vibration-transfer for less user-fatigue.
This 50cm model is suitable for domestic use over medium- to large-sized areas up to 1200m2.
