Top 10 Petrol Rear Roller Lawn Mowers for 2017

Looking for a classic striped lawn?

If you’re in a part of the country right now that is witnessing this fantastic heatwave – lucky you! Here on the North Norfolk Coast we are enjoying our hottest June in about 40 years. (However there may be a storm brewing!) The sea beckons us on a daily basis and it’s a hard choice between cooling off in the North sea which amazingly is a rather tempting sparkling green colour right now, or going home and firing up the BBQ! But first, of course there is work to be done. Not just here in our actual jobs but also at home where the grass is growing at an alarming rate and with the threat of some rain tomorrow we know by next weekend it will be long overdue a really good cut!

Working for a garden machinery company means it is of course obligatory to take a keen interest in gardening, and if you didn’t already before you started, you certainly will a few weeks into the job! That is true of myself and with a lot of guidance over the years from my colleagues and fellow garden enthusiasts I have started to take my garden a lot more seriously. The point of these blogs therefore is to give you some sound advice that I have certainly benefited from over the years, so you can make the right decision on what type of garden machinery you purchase. Lots of people simply buy a product for its brand, and yes we’ve been guilty of that in the past. (all eyes to my trusted Mountfield mower and my Stihl trimmer, to name just a couple) and that’s fine as long as you know what you want from your machine. To be brief there’s lots of good brands out there and what you need to do is match the products capabilities to your own wants and needs. For example there is no point in purchasing the most heavy duty chain saw if you are only going to be cutting up firewood. (As lovely as it will sound as you fire it up!)

So what do you do if you have decided you want to purchase a petrol rear roller lawnmower? Well you could try reading our blog, and if that doesn’t help you could visit our website or just be really old fashioned and call us. If you live locally feel free to pop in and talk to one of our friendly team. Firstly, why buy a petrol lawn mower? Well they are robust, the engines are built to last and they offer pretty good power and cutting capabilities. No cords to trip you up and no batteries to charge up. Fill up with petrol and you are good to go. Petrol powered lawnmowers have long had a reputation for being noisy, smelly and heavy to use. Modern ones however have been designed to offer you a more user-friendly experience.

Why buy a rear roller lawn mower? Well the answer is simple. You can achieve that lovely neat striped lawn effect and the rear roller will help you smooth out any divots, worm casts or imperfections. The rear roller also adds extra stability, so you can get close to the edges of your borders with less chance of your mower toppling into your bedding plants!
