MD 48T Tow-Behind Plug Aerator (Showroom Model)

MD 48T Tow-Behind Plug Aerator (Showroom Model) was £149.00 now £99.00
A good, healthy lawn needs constant care and maintenance and aerating is a vital part of this process. A very broad working width of 1.2 metres makes this aerator the ideal machine for looking after a large lawn, or lawns, and it can be moved from area to area easily, courtesy of the handy, lever operated, transport adjustment. Just raise the coring points to move, lower them to work. The aerating is carried out by 32 hollow coring points, which remove small plugs of earth and turf from the lawn, allowing soil that has become compacted to loosen and, like a spiked aerator, allowing water, air and sunlight to nourish and nurture the roots, encouraging healthy growth. Plug aerators are particularly beneficial for lawns based on clay soils. The aerator has a flat area on top (the tray) on which you can place weights to make penetration even deeper and the MD 48T Tow-Behind Aerator has coring points which can dig in up to 75 millimetres. The weight capacity of the tray is 63.5kg. Wide rubber tyres are fitted to the wheels, to ensure a smooth run without damaging your lawn and they are patterned for added grip in wet weather. A hitch pin enables the aerator to be towed behind all models of ride-on.

McCulloch CS380 Petrol Chainsaw (40.6cm Guide-Bar) (Showroom Model) was £199.95 now £149.00
If you’re looking for a powerful and dependable chainsaw for general-purpose use around the house and garden, then the McCulloch CS380 could well be the machine for you. Making the McCulloch CS380 tick is a high-performance 38.2cc two-stroke engine that employs the American manufacturer’s advanced OxyPower technology which works to reduce fuel-consumption by 20-percent; and emissions by a massive 70-percent. ‘Soft Start’ ensures only a light pull on the starter-rope is need for ignition; while a combined choke / stop control significantly lessens the likelihood of carburettor flooding. The McCulloch CS380 Petrol Chainsaw features tool-free chain-tensioning, so you can make performance-boosting adjustments in a matter of seconds. It has a dual-action chain-brake, which kicks-in instantly should the saw strike a knot in the wood (it can also be activated manually); and it comes equipped with an integrated combi-tool, which is always immediately to hand should you need it. This lightweight (5.2kg) and easy-to-control machine offers numerous comfort-enhancing features, including a steel-spring anti-vibration system; soft-grip handles; conveniently-grouped controls; and a low centre-of-gravity. Additional benefits include a centrifugal air-purger for reduced wear on key engine parts; and a manual fuel-pump for consistent first or second pull starts. A series of felling-marks allows for precision cutting.
