Mountfield 3000SH Lawn Tractor (Showroom Model)

Mountfield 3000SH Lawn Tractor (Showroom Model) £1899.00
For the first time in the history of garden-tractor manufacture, you can get your hands on an 82cm machine with a twin-blade cutter deck – this allows you to enjoy the manoeuvrability of a compact tractor, while benefiting from the superior cut & collect performance offered by a double-bladed design. The Mountfield 3000SH Lawn Tractor employs a very high-powered 389cc GXV390 engine from the world’s largest manufacturer of small engines; Honda. These single-cylinder air-cooled units benefit from the Japanese producer’s up-to-the-minute overhead-valve technology, which leads to a substantial reduction in exhaust emissions; sound output; vibration; and, arguably most importantly of all at the moment; fuel costs. Quality engine features include an automatic decompression system for practically effortless pull-starts; and a dual-element air-filter for optimum component protection, and therefore a significant lengthening of engine-life. The two blades on the Mountfield 3000SH are non-timed and non-overlapping. This, along with their perfect calibration, ensures an exceptionally smooth, neat finish; and also helps to reduce the potential for damage should they strike an unseen object. The forceful air-stream created by the action of the blades not only ensures no cut-grass will be left behind to spoil your lawn’s aesthetics, but also means that even damp clippings are driven at speed into the collector, with none of the clumping that can lead to the blocking of the discharge chute (the collector has a capacity of 240-litres – very large for a tractor with an 82cm cut). This model has been equipped with a hydrostatic transmission, which provides you with smooth, jerk-free control of your ground-speed, with no time-consuming need to stop to change gear, as with a manual machine. The drive wheels (and the front wheels) are fitted with wide-profile, chunky-tread tyres, which offer the perfect compromise between traction and gentleness on the lawn surface. Mountfield have put user-comfort to the fore in the design of the 3000SH, providing as they have an ergonomically moulded steering wheel; an adjustable seat with sprung suspension; padded foot rests; and electronic deck-engagement. The tractor’s step through design ensures that even the less nimble gardener will have no trouble getting on and off. Giving you the choice of seven heights-of-cut (25 – 80mm), the Mountfield 3000SH can be adapted to suit a range of grass-types, and can be set up so you can achieve different finishes on different sections of your lawn. There’s also a deck-wash facility – simply attach a hosepipe; turn on the water; spin the blades; and the tractor’s undercarriage will be quickly free of any performance-inhibiting and potentially corrosive accumulation. Should you wish to mulch clippings, or drop them directly on the grass, you can purchase the optional mulch-plug or deflector-kit.

Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619J) (Ex Demo - 1 Hours Use)

Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619J) (Ex Demo – 1 Hours Use) £370.00
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.

Hayter Motif 48 Push 4-Wheel Lawnmower (Code: 433) (Ex Demo - 1 Hours Use)

Hayter Motif 48 Push 4-Wheel Lawnmower (Code: 433) (Ex Demo – 1 Hours Use) £339.00
With its wider 48cm cut and very high-powered 190cc Briggs & Stratton 650-Series engine, this simple but effective push-type machine is a fast and efficient performer over larger areas. The 650-Series engine is an overhead-cam type unit that develops impressive amounts of torque, and which delivers its power quietly, smoothly and fuel-efficiently. Briggs & Stratton’s ReadyStart system eliminates the need for priming or choke application. Built to last, the Hayter Motif 48 Push 4-Wheel Lawn Mower features a strong and durable steel cutter-deck; ball-bearing mounted wheels that will continue to roll smoothly with age; and a cutter-bar friction-disc, which ensures the crankshaft (and therefore the engine) won’t be damaged if you accidentally hit a solid object. Thanks to its hand-push design, the Motif 48 can be guided safely and accurately around obstacles that might be tricky to negotiate with a power-driven model. It offers eight preset heights-of-cut (22 – 55mm), so you can choose the one that best suits the conditions; and there’s a high-capacity 59-litre grassbag, which is made from fabric for more compact storage (folding handlebars also help to save space in the shed).

Greenworks are world leaders in the development of battery-powered lawnmowers and this new 4-in-1 model not only offers real versatility but crucially is able to deliver performance levels that are comparable to a petrol machine.

Lithium-ion mowers by Greenworks are a cleaner and more user-friendly option than your old petrol machine. Think about it; no more un-planned trips to the petrol station; no more noisy engines; no more harmful emissions; and no more hassle trying to get the mower started. Greenworks motors are also maintenance free so you won’t have hefty service bills to pay and it costs you just pennies to charge your battery compared to around a pound each time you fill up your petrol mower so think how much you might save each mowing season?The Greenworks G-MAX 45Li-40V is a premium quality lawnmower with a solid steel deck for added robustness. It offers 4-in-1 mowing which means that as well as standard collection you also have the ability to mulch cuttings on lawn areas (ideal for speeding up mowing times during the drier summer months) as well as cutting and dropping the grass clippings on rough grass or using the side-discharge chute where the grass is longer.This extremely versatile cordless lawnmower is ideal for lawns and mixed grass areas up to around 1000 square metres (or two tennis courts) in size. The powerful 40V/4Ah lithium-ion battery will provide continuous power for up to 60 mins and comes supplied with a rapid charger that will fully re-charge the battery in just 2 hours.The height-of-cut lever is centrally positioned for added convenience and provides seven different positions between 20-70mm enabling you to achieve a fine finish on lawn areas and adjust upwards when tackling longer grass and more established growth. The height lever mechanism is made of solid steel for long-term durability and it has been ergonomically designed for comfortable operation. Plus, as well as a close cut you will also be able to achieve a smart striped finish on more formal lawn areas thanks to the striping mat that comes with this mower. Other superior features include the solid steel handle-frame with heavy-duty mounting plates which give the mower a real quality feel. The handles also have a foam soft-grip for added comfort and control; and there is an ergonomic full-length steel bail-arm. In addition, quick-release levers have been fitted enabling the handles to be folded-down easily when storing or transporting the mower.
