Lawnflite LG175H Lawn & Garden Tractor

Lawnflite LG175H Lawn & Garden Tractor £1875.00
Offering powerful performance; rock-solid build-quality; and a raft of high-spec features; Lawnflite’s top-of-the-range Optima garden tractor will eliminate all the fuss and hassle from the job of large-scale lawn-care. Unlike many lesser machines, it boasts a hydrostatic drive, whereby the mower’s ground-speed, both forward and reverse, is controlled by the pressure you apply to the foot pedal. As a result, you can easily slow to a crawl when approaching obstacles or end-of-run turns, before accelerating for open-ground passes. Lawnflite have fitted larger-diameter drive-wheels, so you’ll have plenty of grip on muddy ground – great when using one of the many towed attachments in adverse conditions. The Lawnflite LG175H Lawn & Garden Tractor can either mulch grass-clippings – great for short, dry grass; or side-discharge them – ideal for the sort of overgrown grass found in paddocks and meadows. Should you wish to pick-up clippings, an optional grass-collector is available. Thanks to its extra-wide 107cm width-of-cut, the Lawnflite LG175H will make short work of lawns and other grassed areas up to a huge 2000m2. It has an incredibly tight 46cm turning-radius that works with its hydro drive to make it one of the most manoeuvrable machines in its class; while its fully floating mower-deck will track the contours of the ground so as to avoid any missed patches, and is fitted with a deck-wash nozzle for easy cleaning of the undercarriage. Powerful headlights facilitate safe mowing and towing when the light is bad; while a five-step adjustable height-of-cut (30 – 95mm) means you’ll find it easy to adapt to changing conditions. This model is powered by MTD’s new OHV engine that develops 6.2kW at 2800rpm. It has a drinks holder for on-hand refreshment; and employs a step-through design that makes it really easy to mount and dismount.

Lawnflite RF125 Lawn & Garden Tractor

Lawnflite RF125 Lawn & Garden Tractor £1449.00
Try-out this feature-laden lawn-tractor from trusted brand Lawnflite just once and you’ll never want to return to a walk-behind mower. The Lawnflite RF125 might have a generous 96cm width-of-cut, but it’s nevertheless highly manoeuvrable, with its super-tight 46cm turning-radius ensuring trees, complex borders and challenging corners can be negotiated without problem. The drive wheels are substantially larger in diameter than the front wheels, so you’ll have ample traction on damp ground. The powerful but fuel-efficient MTD four-stroke engine on the RF125 drives a Transmatic transmission that gives you the sought after Shift-on-the-Go capability – simply select your preferred ground-speed; start moving; and then when you apply the brake, the tractor will slow accordingly, before returning automatically to the speed you’ve pre-selected when the brake is released. This means you’ll be able to complete the job far more quickly than you would with a stop/start manual-drive tractor. Ostensibly a side-discharge machine (deflector included), the Lawnflite RF125 Lawn & Garden Tractor can be converted to mulching or collection with the purchase of the necessary accessories (mulch-kit and/or grass-catcher). It has five-stage height-of-cut (30 – 95mm), so you can create different finishes on different parts of your lawn, if desired; and it’s fitted with a pivoting front-axle, which guarantees a neat and even cut on undulating terrain. To aid maintenance, Lawnflite have provided a forward-folding removable bonnet that comes away in a single piece. Turf-saving tyres combine with anti-scalp deck-wheels to prevent gouging during turns on uneven ground; while ergonomically laid-out controls work to make the job as comfortable as possible.

STIHL FS56 C-E Light 0.8KW Brushcutter with Ergostart (Showroom Model)

STIHL FS56 C-E Light 0.8KW Brushcutter with Ergostart (Showroom Model) £239.00
Characterised by its impressive construction-quality and high-specification engine, the German-manufactured Stihl FS56 C-E will come into its own in the hands of the more exacting domestic gardening-enthusiast. Key amongst numerous premium-grade engine features is Stihl’s ErgoStart ignition-system, which reduces the amount of effort that’s needed to achieve ignition by a huge 20%. Prior to starting, all you need to do is apply choke and prime the carburettor; and then you’re ready to go. The powerful 1.1hp (27.2cc) engine also benefits from the employment of the latest stratified-charge technology, which minimises fuel-loss, in turn leading to a 20% reduction in fuel-consumption when compared to a conventional two-stroke unit. Exhaust emissions are also significantly reduced. Fitted with a professional ‘bike’-type handlebar and weighing-in at only 5.2kg, the Stihl FS56 C-E Light 0.8KW Brushcutter can be swept from side-to-side with minimal effort expended on the part of the operator. The provision of a shoulder-harness further improves operator-comfort. This model comes equipped with an AutoCut line-head with a handy bump-feed mechanism. A heavy-duty brush-blade is available as an optional accessory.
