Mountfield 1538H-SD Lawn & Garden Tractor (Special Offer)

Mountfield 1538H-SD Lawn & Garden Tractor (Special Offer) £1599.00
The Mountfield 1538H-SD Lawn & Garden Tractor combines a very large 98cm cutting-width with a hugely powerful 452cc Mountfield single-cylinder engine, so it will prove a great choice if you’re looking-after a very large lawn (up to 8000m2). Its side-discharge function is ideal for areas that are less regularly maintained; while its mulching capability comes into its own on regularly trimmed formal lawns (grass-clippings are finely shredded so they quickly rot and disappear). Large lawn-tractors can often be difficult to control and manoeuvre. Mountfield have got around this problem by incorporating a variable-speed hydrostatic-drive, which allows you to adjust the ground-speed in infinite increments while on the move. This not only makes it easy to mow around and between garden obstacles, but also enables you to select the most effective ground-speed for the conditions and grass-type you’re working with. Other high-specification features include Mountfield’s ContraFlo cutting-system, which optimises under-deck air-flow for excellent mulching performance; and a seven-stage height-of-cut (25 – 80mm), so you can set the blade-position to create your desired finish. A tow-bar is supplied as standard.

Earthquake CS10 Petrol Chipper-Shredder

Earthquake CS10 Petrol Chipper-Shredder £999.00
With its immensely powerful 10hp Briggs & Stratton engine; rapid throughput-rate; and rugged build-quality; this heavy-duty petrol chipper/shredder from U.S. manufacturers will make short work of both semi-professional and large-scale domestic waste processing jobs. As a shredder, it uses Earthquake’s patented free-swinging triangular hammers to pulverise leaves; hedge-clippings; grass-cuttings; and similar soft debris, reducing it at a rate of 20:1 to the sort of highly compostable mulch for which garden-centres charge a significant amount of money. As a chipper, branches up to 7.5cm in diameter are sent through two super-sharp chipping blades, leaving you with woodchips that can be used for pathway surfacing or winter bed-protection. In-feed is simple and safe. The Earthquake CS10 Petrol Chipper-Shredder features Earthquake’s unique direct-drive rotor assembly, whereby vibration-levels are minimised, which in turn lessens wear and tear, thereby extending the useful life of key parts. It comes with a capacious 70-litre collection-bag, so you won’t lose any of the precious mulch; and it sits on a pair large-diameter wheels that work with its low centre-of-gravity to ensure stability during both operation and towing. For enhanced convenience, this model can be used with the optional vac-kit.

Earthquake CS6B Petrol Chipper-Shredder

Earthquake CS6B Petrol Chipper-Shredder £799.00
This high-end domestic-use chipper/shredder, from American brand Earthquake, has been equipped with numerous premium-grade features and will make short work of turning both green and woody waste into a mulch that will prove highly useful around the garden (the reduction-ratio is 20:1). When chipping branches (up to 5cm in diameter), it employs a unique design, which comprises optimised knife-angles and a heavy-duty flywheel that combine to ensure material is automatically pulled through. This means you can be ready with another branch the minute the previous one has been processed. When shredding softer debris, like hedge-clippings, leaves and wind-fallen fruit, material is subjected to the action of a series of free-swinging hammers, which thoroughly pulverise it, leaving you with a very finely chopped mulch that will rot-down in quick-time. All processed material is delivered to a large-capacity collection-bag (70-litre). Power from the beefy 6hp Briggs & Stratton engine on the Earthquake CS6B Petrol Chipper-Shredder is delivered to the mechanism through Ardisam’s unique direct-drive motor, which works to minimise vibration, in turn reducing wear and extending the life of crucial components. Thanks to its low stance and large-diameter wheels, this model is stable during operation, and can be towed safely across undulating terrain. Should you wish to further enhance the versatility of your purchase, you might want to take a look at the optional vacuum-kit.

Kawasaki KBH53A Brushcutter (Special Offer)

Kawasaki KBH53A Brushcutter (Special Offer) £599.00
This impressive machine is Kawasaki’s top-of-the-range petrol brushcutter, and as such is has been equipped to take the toughest of conditions in its stride. Driving it is an exceptionally high-powered two-stroke engine, which, despite its huge 53cc cylinder-capacity, still manages to meet EU emission requirements with ample room to spare. In order to ensure all-day use won’t overly exercise the operator, Kawasaki have fitted the Kawasaki KBH53 Brushcutter with an ergonomic ‘cowhorn’-type handlebar; kept the weight down to just 10.4 kg; and supplied it with a full double shoulder-harness. A grass-trimming line-head and a heavy-duty metal brush-blade are both included.
