Wanted... Petrol Lawnmower

Hi all...

I broke the electric mower yesterday...3rd one I've bust in as many years.... the garden is just too big for cheap electric ones now... what are my options for Bank Holiday bargains on petrol mowers up to £200????



There are loads of good petrol mowers reduced in Argos, give them a try:thumbsup:

got a leaflet from argos yesterday petrol strimmer & lawnmover down to about £150 on offer

I have a piece of land I bought that is large enough for a block of four small flats. The land is rough and I have left it unbuilt on as I got caught up with other projects.

Budget strimmers don't work for large areas - as you spend the majority of the time trying to advance the string which jams. Thicker string works far better - but smashes the plastic protector at the cut head to bits in a couple of days. I have been told 'brush cutters' are a good bet - and use a rotating disk that looks like a circular saw.

However, to cut the central areas of the grass was quite easy - even when it has the long yellow straw like grass that reaches your thighs - and thick heavy green grass that feels like a cushion beneath.

I got a petrol hover mower, and if you are strong enough to carry to mower for the first 2m x 2m area to get it started - then it becomes fairly easy to work out from that area.

I got it from a shop in Paisley (Scotland) called Guthrie Plus, who sold new stuff in damaged boxes. Its in my lock up which is not here - but if you want I can get the model number for you - and its worked for over 5 years.

Is this a waste of money though? Should I go for a better quality engine?

Are homebase having a bank holiday sale tomorrow?

i was in b&q last week and they had 1 for £90

Agree petrol is much more useful & robust; Also with petrol you can cut damp grass

I was just about to buy a new one petrol mower so I done some research, but ended up getting the part for my old one which is 19 years old and it is now fine.

From what I can see the £90-100 are less robustly constructed, thin metal or plastic.

Honda do one called an HRG 415, I found it for about £228 inc del from Garden Lines
