Mountfield 1640H Lawn & Garden Tractor

Mountfield 1640H Lawn & Garden Tractor £2199.00
This premium-quality lawn & garden tractor from Mountfield offers high-spec features throughout and will come into its own on lawns and informal grassed areas of up to 10,000m2. It’s powered by a 452cc Mountfield 7750-Series engine; an overhead-valve power-unit which you’ll find smooth-running, exceptionally reliable and highly economical. An electric key start starting ensures getting the engine going is a fast, headache-free operation. Instead of a clunky manual gearbox, the Mountfield 1640H is equipped with a hydrostatic drive. Similar to a an automatic transmission on a car, this high-end feature enables you to control the mower’s speed (both forward and reverse) using a foot pedal, maximising manoeuvrability when mowing around and between obstacles, and making it easy to select the most effective pace for the grass conditions. A very tight turning circle (160cm) further improves manoeuvrability. Thanks to its bagging, mulching and rear-discharge capabilities, the Mountfield 1640H Lawn & Garden Tractor offers the versatility needed to tackle a range of different grass types. In collection-mode, grass clippings are blown from the 102cm twin-blade cutter-deck into a very large-capacity 260-litre collector that makes it possible to get the job done with fewer stops. The collector can be emptied without leaving the driver’s seat and is fitted with a ‘collector full’ buzzer to let you know when it’s at capacity (this helps to stop the discharge-chute becoming blocked due to overfilling). Clumped grass-clippings around the blades and underside of the deck can seriously inhibit performance, so Mountfield have equipped the 1640H with a handy deck-wash facility. Simply attach a hose, turn on the water and then spin the blades – the dead grass will then be thoroughly removed. This cutter deck on this model is slightly wider than the width of the wheels, so there’ll be less post-mowing trimming work to do. The Mountfield 1640H features a seven-stage height-of-cut, adjustable between 25 and 80mm to suit both your preferred finish and the length of the grass you’re working on. Like the grassbox-emptying mechanism, the cutting-height can be controlled from the driver’s seat (there’s no need to stop to make adjustments). Other notable features include electromagnetic blade-engagement, which reduces wear and extends the life of key parts; and twin-headlights that will allow you to finish the job if you started a bit too late in the afternoon.

Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619) (Showroom Model)

Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619) (Showroom Model) £375.00
If you’re looking for an almost effortless way to create a traditional striped finish on a smaller lawn, then this 41cm self-propelled model from Hayter could well be the machine for you. It offers superb build-quality, with its rust-resistant aluminium cutter-deck; premium-quality components; and long-lasting ball-bearing wheels all contributing to an impressively lengthy service-life. It’s fitted with a full-width ribbed rear-roller that will leave a pronounced stripe, while at the same time allowing for stable edging; and it has a seven-step height-of-cut that’s adjustable via a single lever, and which can be set right down to 13mm for a really close cut (front-mounted fins further enhance the quality of cut). The Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower employs a 158cc Briggs & Stratton 500-Series engine; a powerful and ultra-reliable 5hp four-stroke unit which is commonly found on larger machines. It has a smooth ABS plastic lining on the underside of the deck, so noise is reduced and collection-performance is optimised; and it comes equipped with a large-capacity 55-litre grass-collector, which works to minimise downtime caused by trips to the compost-heap (the collector is made from fabric for space-saving storage). Other noteworthy features include a friction disc, which stops the crankshaft bending in the unlikely event you strike a solid object; and an ergonomic full-width bail-bar, which provides a firm, positive grip and ensures you’ll finish the job in comfort.

Mountfield Princess 42 Electric 4 Wheel Rear Roller Lawnmower (Showroom Model) £139.00
A high quality, brushless induction electric motor, producing 1800 watts, delivering clean, efficient emission free quiet power with very few parts to maintain, an ample cutting width of 42 centimetres for swift effective coverage of small-medium lawns and a lightweight polypropylene chassis for easy and effortless handling make this lawnmower stand out in its class and promise quality as well as great value. The largest lawnmower in the range, the superior Princess 42 Electric 4 Wheel Rear Roller Lawnmower can manage and maintain lawns of around 15m2 and is the ideal machine for smaller urban, suburban or village gardens where the lawn is close to a power supply. The Princess 42 is a three-in-one machine, giving you the option of cutting in three different ways. Cut and collect – with the included grass container collecting and storing the clippings until emptying, rear discharge – with the built in deflector directing the clippings towards the lawn and preventing stones from being flung out and mulching – where an included mulch plug forces the grass clippings down into the lawn. This helps them to compost into the turf and can produce exceptionally healthy and verdant growth. Versatility is provided by the cutting height adjustment, operated from a single-point for convenience and six positions are available from as low as 25 millimetres up to as high as 75 millimetres. The cutting deck has a built-in anti scalp grass comb feature to make sure no grass escapes cutting and ease horizontal blades into the vertical position, and it will also enhance the cut and help with grass collection. Wide wheels with rubber tyres make sure every trip across the lawn is smooth and easy and the rear wheels are larger to facilitate easy turning and manoeuvring. The Princess 42 Electric has a smooth running rear roller situated between the rear wheels, which creates the classic and much admired striped effect on the lawn. This roller is also useful for balancing the mower, especially when cutting along the edges of paths or borders and helps keep the cut even For convenient storage, the Princess 42 lawnmower has fully folding handles fitted with fast and easy to use release levers for stress free transport and storage. The grass collector has a generous capacity of 50 litres to reduce the amount of times you have to stop and empty and a carrying handle makes it easy to transport and tip while the air holes in the collector enhance airflow for better collection and the hard to keeps the dust down. A grass full indicator window also saves you from emptying until you need to. Fifteen metres of electric cable is included with the Princess 42 Electric Rear Roller Lawnmower and it carries a full 12-month domestic guarantee.
