Einhell MSF 570 Manual Snow Plough

Einhell MSF 570 Manual Snow Plough was £25.00 now £15.00
Winters are becoming harsher and large scale snow clearing machines are getting more popular, but snow and ice know no boundaries and can cause as much chaos for the small householder as for the larger property. So what do you do? Shovelling is back breaking work but we all need to clear the snow so we can go about our business and not risk injury to our visitors or ourselves. Well, if a shovel is not quite right and a snow blower is too heavy duty, why not try this nifty and affordable solution from those clever German people at Einhell. The Einhell MSF 570 manual snow plough is perfect for an urban or suburban household and, with a 57 centimetre working width, it is ideal for those who need to clear snow away from a small drive or path with the minimum of stress and strain and but want more than just an ordinary shovel. The MSF 570 is very easy to use, and has a concave blade, which works in conjunction with a revolving auger. The auger works on the ‘Archimedes Screw’ principle, churning up the snow and pushing it to the side (to the right) as you ease forward. Built to a good working height to prevent you having to bend, the Einhell MSF 570 Snow Plough has a double handle bar, specially shaped to ensure comfortable use and is easily foldable for compact storage. The blade and auger are constructed from durable, impact and corrosion resistant plastic and the handlebar of powder-coated metal with ergonomic plastic grip. Well made, lightweight and effective, this could be the ideal solution for snow clearing in the coming months and it carries a reassuring two-year manufacturer’s guarantee.

Alko 4000VB Petrol Scarifier Collector (Collector Only - Part No 119330)

Alko 4000VB Petrol Scarifier Collector (Collector Only – Part No 119330) was £449.00 now £29.99
With its high-performance 148cc / 2.2kW Briggs & Stratton four-stroke engine freeing the operator from the restrictions of a mains-cable, the German-designed Al-Ko 4000VB is ideal for those maintaining a larger lawn (it has a 40cm working-width). The engine powers a set of 17 stainless-steel scarifying knives, which will pull out any thatch accumulation, thereby making it much easier for sunlight, oxygen, micro-organisms and essential nutrients to reach the all-important root-network. The six-stage working-depth is dial adjusted, so it couldn’t be easier to select you desired blade position. The Al-Ko 4000VB Petrol Scarifier comes equipped with a capacious 50-litre collector, so you won’t have to rake-up any debris that might be left on the lawn surface. It sits on smooth-running ball-bearing mounted wheels and weighs just 33kg, so it couldn’t be easier to push; and it features a safety-enhancing ‘deadman’s handle’, which ensures the engine stops when the bail-arm is released.

Greenworks 24v Cordless Hedge Trimmer with Twist Handle (22137-12)

Greenworks 24v Cordless Hedge Trimmer with Twist Handle (22137-12) was £89.00 now £65.00
Imagine a hedge trimmer that gives you the kind of power and freedom you get from a petrol machine, but significantly lighter and easier to handle at a remarkable 2.25kg plus the ‘no fumes, no fuss, no maintenance’ of an electric. A hedge trimmer that delivers on every front – power, cost effectiveness, comfort, convenience and advanced features. Well, that’s what you get with the Greenworks 24v 2AH. Utilising advanced battery technology, Greenworks have developed this superior quality, easy to handle hedge trimmer for domestic use, that provides up to 30% more power than conventional battery types, delivering up to 35 minutes of continuous running time – which means even longer usage time, as the battery does not lose any power when the switch is not depressed. In fact, the 24v lithium-ion battery that powers this trimmer was developed and designed to be lighter, charge faster, last longer and fully maintain its power while not in use, even after weeks. When it comes to the cutting, twin reciprocating steel blades run over each other for a really clean and precise finish, and this action also prevents blockages and potential stalling, as well as lowering vibrations and ensuring a smooth cut. The blades are 56cm long for an extended reach, enabling the trimmer to tackle fairly large hedges and get to parts of the hedge that may be difficult to access without over-stretching, Greenworks are committed to providing quality, comfort and ease as standard so the handle is well cushioned with over-mould grips and a transparent guard at the front handle protects the operator while making sure there is a clear view of the cutting action. The handle rotates at the touch of a button – a great feature on a hedge trimmer in this price bracket – and the multi-position rotation enables cutting at variable angles, preventing back problems caused by stretching and bending and enhancing the efficiency of the trimmer. A safety lock-off switch on the rear handle prevents accidental starting and this contemporary and high-quality trimmer comes with an unusually long three-year warranty. The powerful and lightweight 24v 2AH battery and diagnostic wall mountable charger are included with this hedge trimmer. This gives you charging information, and an indicator on the battery is also included which tells you your charge level.

Stiga Snow Electric 31 Snow Blower

Stiga Snow Electric 31 Snow Blower was £89.00 now £69.00
The weather is unpredictable, whatever the forecasters say, and a sudden fall of snow can wreak havoc with your daily routine, affecting work, school and shopping amongst other things. Clearing snow with a shovel can be wearing and stressful on the back and so this neat, compact, lightweight and simple electric Snow Blower, with a working width of 31 centimetres, could revolutionise your snow clearing when the white stuff comes down. Built with the smaller household in mind, the Stiga Snow Electric 31 Snow Thrower is the perfect alternative to a shovel, and is compact and light enough to hang up on your porch coat hooks with the winter coats or store in the shed with the other tools, but powerful enough to clear up snow easily from your yard and throw it up to five metres away. Working like a kind of electric shovel, with a powerful 1100 electric mains powered motor, the Stiga Snow Electric 31 Snow Thrower is designed for hard surfaces and has a working width of 31 centimetres and an intake height of 23 centimetres, so will clear small drives, paths, patios and areas of decking very effectively. There are no wheels, the Electric 31 uses snowshoes, which slide along the surface, over the ice and snow, so it can clear right down to the ground. Ergonomic handles make this a very comfortable machine to use. The handle is telescopic so you can work at the correct height for your posture and the handgrip is adjustable. All this plus a reliable electric switch start and easy storage, in season or out, make this the ideal solution to winter’s potential chaos

Webb H12R Hand-Propelled Cylinder Lawn Mower

Webb H12R Hand-Propelled Cylinder Lawn Mower was £89.95 now £89.00
If you’re looking for a simple, hassle-free way to create a fine manicured finish on a formal lawn, then the Webb H12R could well be the solution. It works by way of a heavy-duty chain-drive, whereby power from the rotating action of the three-piece front roller is transferred to the cutting-cylinder with minimal torque loss. This, in conjunction with a five-bladed hardened-steel cylinder, ensures a superior cut. The Webb H12R Hand-Propelled Cylinder Lawn Mower is fitted with a wide rear-roller, which not only leaves behind it an attractive stripe, but also provides stability when mowing along lawn edges. It has an adjustable cutting-height (13 – 23.5mm), which is quick-and-easy to set, no tools required; and it comes equipped with a high-volume 18-litre grassbox, which ensures you’ll be able to complete the job with few emptying-stops. Highly manoeuvrable and easy to push, this model weighs only 11.1kg and has a compact overall width of just 33cm.

This single-stage, electric snow blower from Swedish snow experts Stiga can clear snow from your path or drive quickly, removing the obstacle and potential slip hazard of snow in one go and offering excellent value for money. There is a convenient electric push button start, and 10 metres of cable is supplied for powering the snow blower, simply plug into an external power supply, push the button and you’re ready to go.

The forward motion of the Snow Blowers front mounted auger propels the Snow Blower, and a reliable Leo 1800W engine powers it. After the snow has been broken up, it is thrown up and out via a tough, weather-proof, chute that can be rotated up to 180
