Snapper E3317523KVE Ride-On Mower

Snapper E3317523KVE Ride-On Mower £2299.00
The Snapper E3317523KVE has one of the largest cutting-widths of any domestic rear-engine ride-on (84cm), but retains the nimble manoeuvrability of its smaller counterparts. This combination makes it perfect for substantial lawns with trees; shrubs; beds; and garden furniture to mow around. With its 500cc Briggs & Stratton Intek Series 4175 overhead-valve engine, the Snapper E3317523KVE Ride-On Mower develops the sort of torque that’s essential when dealing with heavy grass-conditions. Full-pressure lubrication works to maximise engine-life; while a large-capacity 6.5-litre fuel-tank ensures plenty can be achieved between each top-up stop. Snapper have equipped the engine with an electric key ignition, so starting is fast and hassle-free. This feature-packed machine has a six-speed ‘shift-on-the-go’ gearbox, so it’s far less clucky in operation than lower-spec manual-drive machines where you have to stop to alter the ground-speed. Quick-response steering provides a more intuitive driving experience; while a split differential transmission helps to guard against turf-damage caused by wheel-spins. The gearing is encased in an oil-bath for reduced wear and therefore a longer working-life. Capable of bagging; side-discharging; or mulching (optional) grass-cuttings, the Snapper E3317523KVE has a mowing-mode for every eventuality. It has a luxury mid-back seat with ergonomic contouring for a comfortable drive; and it’s fitted with a set of anti-scalp deck-wheels that prevent turf-gouging on undulating ground. You can stand the Snapper E3317523KVE on its end for easier cleaning and more compact storage.

Earthquake 6015B Compact Rear-Tine Cultivator

Earthquake 6015B Compact Rear-Tine Cultivator £749.00
This innovative machine from Earthquake offers the sort of power, performance and heavy-duty build-quality you’d expect from a rear-tine tiller, but is far more compact, lightweight and manoeuvrable than other similarly-rated cultivators (it’s actually the first compact rear-tine tiller to come to market). It’s driven by a very high-performance 205cc Briggs & Stratton 800-Series engine, which is the leading American brand’s most powerful engine for walk-behind garden machinery. The engine’s overhead-valve design confers both superior reliability and improved fuel-economy. The Earthquake 6015B Compact Rear-Tine Cultivator employs a set of contra-rotating tines, which help the machine to dig deeper and will cut with ease through virgin ground. Power is sent to the tines via a heavy-duty gear-drive that’s encased in a highly robust cast-iron housing. Tapered roller-bearings and top-quality steel bushings contribute further to longevity. The compact design of the Earthquake 6015B makes it ideally suited to plots with confined areas and narrow gateways to negotiate (and it won’t take-up too much space in the shed). It runs on a pair of large-diameter, deep-tread tyres, which aid traction and manoeuvrability; and benefits from Earthquake’s exclusive ‘Isovibe’ pivoting drag-stake system that soaks-up machine vibration, while helping to maintain your desired digging-depth.
