Toro DH140 Rear-Collect Garden Tractor (Ex Demo - 1 Hours Use)

Toro DH140 Rear-Collect Garden Tractor (Ex Demo – 1 Hours Use) £1899.00
The first offering in Toro’s DH range, the DH140, delivers the sort of impressive cutting-performance; convenient features; and robust build-quality that are essential for any serious gardener.It comes equipped with a Rear-Collect cutter-deck, which employs twin contra-rotating blades, the action of which creates a forceful air-stream that powers cut-grass at high-speed into the grassbag – even damp grass and twigs can be successfully bagged (the catcher holds a huge 250-litres of lawn debris).The deck measures a substantial 92cm and is fully-floating so as to ensure the contours of undulating terrain are closely tracked by the blades.The Toro DH140 Rear-Collect Garden Tractor doesn’t just collect cut-grass – with Toro’s recycling-mode selected, clippings are instead finely mulched and returned to the lawn surface, giving the neat appearance of bagging or raking, and also providing the turf with completely natural nutrients.Designed with driver-comfort to the fore, the Toro DH140 has been fitted with a suspended seat; electric key start; and electric deck-engagement.It benefits from an audible ‘bag-full’ warning that should prevent you overfilling and blocking the discharge-chute; and you can empty the bag from the seat – no dismounting or lifting required.This model is driven by a high-powered 344cc Briggs & Stratton engine with AVS for comprehensive vibration-reduction; and an overhead-valve for superior fuel-efficiency and a marked reduction in noise and harmful exhaust-emissions.Its chassis is made from rugged channel-steel, so durability is not in question; and its front-axle is made from cast-iron, thereby ensuring it will easily cope with any accidental impact from unseen objects.Lastly but certainly not leastly is a Tuff Torque hydrostatic transmission, which confers exceptional manoeuvrability by allowing the driver to adjust the tractor’s speed in infinitely-variable steps using a convenient car-style foot-pedal.

Honda IZY 46SP Self-Propelled Lawn Mower (Second Hand - 1 Years Use)

Honda IZY 46SP Self-Propelled Lawn Mower (Second Hand – 1 Years Use) £299.00
This powerful, self-propelled petrol mower from Japanese manufacturers Honda features a completely redesigned blade, which not only ensures a superior finish, but also optimises airflow to the grassbag for ultra-efficient collection. In addition, noise levels are reduced by an impressive 30%. The Honda IZY 46SP Self-Propelled Lawnmower is powered by Honda’s globally popular garden-machinery engine; the GCV135. This high-performance overhead-cam type unit runs quietly, smoothly and cleanly; and will prove exceptionally cheap to run. Oil and fuel levels are easy to keep track of; and starting is made virtually effortless thanks to an automatic decompression valve. Thanks to its rear-wheel power-drive and 46cm width-of-cut, the Honda IZY 46SP will enable you to cover a medium- to large-sized domestic lawn quickly and with minimal effort expended. It has a safety-enhancing Operator Presence Control lever; and it gives you the choice of six cutting-heights (20 – 74mm), so there’s a blade setting to suit a wide variety of grass-types. Other notable features include a lightweight fabric grassbag, which is easy to lift off when full; and uniquely designed tyres, which provide maximum traction while being gentle on the lawn surface.

Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower (Shop Soiled - Scratches to Handle & Deck)

Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower (Shop Soiled – Scratches to Handle & Deck) £229.00
Anyone seeking a high-quality but nevertheless affordable mower for a medium-sized lawn should place the attractively priced and solidly built Mountfield SP180 high on their list of potential purchases.Key to its high-performance operation is its Briggs & Stratton 450 Series engine; an easy-starting 148cc power-pack that offers long-term reliability and a brand you can trust.The Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower has been equipped with a rear-wheel power-drive, so inclines and rough, tussocky areas can be covered with minimal effort expended on the part of the operator.It offers five-preset cutting-heights (20 – 70mm), which are quick and easy to select using only one lever; and it’s fitted with a comfortable, ergonomically optimised handlebar that you can fold down if space is at a premium in your storage area.The capacious 55-litre grass-collector that comes with the Mountfield SP180 is made from fabric, which allows spent air to escape, in turn enabling the maximum amount of clippings to be packed-in. A hard top on the catcher prevents dust and pollen particles from rising-up into the user’s face when conditions are dry.Also important on this MowDirect-exclusive machine is its hardwearing 45cm-wide steel cutter-deck that delivers piece-of-mind when it comes to robustness and longevity.
