MD Tondu Wheeled Trimmer Mower

MD Tondu Wheeled Trimmer Mower £299.00
This rugged and ready, two-wheeled petrol trimmer represents extremely good value for money and is possibly the best buy on the market for its class in terms of features, quality build and power. The MD Tondu is push propelled, but the trimming head is driven by a powerful 159cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke petrol engine. It is extremely reliable, has a dependable, recoil-pull for easy starts and provides plenty of cutting power for thick grass and stubborn vegetation. A truly go-anywhere trimmer, the simple but effective front design with its low flat-nose profile, means it can glide under bushes, hedges, garden seats or low hanging branches, to cut where others can’t. The overall construction is steel and is rugged and durable, with large heavy-duty, 14 inch wheels, sporting thick rubber tyres and spoked for extra strength so you can venture into spinneys and copses with the MD Tondu, and clear up in meadows and pasture, or tackle river banks, grassy slopes, ditches and, in fact, any overgrown patches of rough grass or weeds. Even awkward areas like roadside verges at the front of properties, which are tricky to handle and are frequently angled, uneven and uncared for, can be tackled and tamed with this versatile trimmer. And being a line trimmer, with strong, durable nylon lines that extend beyond the wheels, you can be confident when working in really overgrown or badly neglected areas, as any unseen rocks, tin cans or other hidden obstacles can be encountered without damage, since there is no metal blade to break. In fact, this means you can use the MD Tondu Two-Wheeled Push Petrol Trimmer to actively trim and cut right up to the very perimeter of walls, garden ornaments and fences without worrying, producing the ultimate neat finish to your garden edges. The working width of 56 centimetres means you can tackle large areas, so a paddock or small pasture should be no problem, and of course, trimming around trees and bushes is easy so a smaller sized orchard will cause no problems. Cutting height adjustment between 35 and 70mm further extends the flexibility of this top-quality, two-wheeled trimmer. Engine control is carried out with a bail-arm, or OPC (Operator Presence Control) so the engine safely stops the instant you release it. There is also a throttle lever on the right, a lever to engage the trimming head to the left and a thick, soft-grip sleeve is fitted to the handle for extra comfort. The MD Tondu Two-Wheeled Push Petrol Trimmer has folding handlebars, making it easy to store or to pop in the back of the car to take to the next working area.
