Mulching Lawn Mowers - Essential Information

Mulching Lawn MowerDid you know that a lawn the size of a tennis court can produce over a ton of grass clippings in a season?  If you don’t want to collect and dispose of your grass clippings you need a mulching lawnmower.

Nearly all of our Mountfield 4 wheel petrol mowers and all of our electric mowers now come with mulching plugs as standard.  Insert the mulching plug and instead of cut grass being discharged into a collector it circulates beneath the cutter deck to be chopped into tiny particles.  These particles are then blown right down into the base of the turf out of sight where micro-organisms aid their rapid decomposition. 

Recycling clippings in this way returns nitrogen and other valuable nutrients to the soil.  You’ll save money on artificial fertilisers but still have a healthy, attractive lawn.  You’ll save time and effort too.  With no collector to empty you’ll find you can cut your lawn up to 30% quicker than with a conventional mower.  

To get the best results don’t take more than a third off the length of the grass when mowing.  This leaves enough room in the standing grass for optimum dispersal of the recycled clippings. Mulching also improves moisture retention so you won’t need to water your lawn as often.

Hand propelled models have to be pushed forward - the engine only drives the cutter blade.  Power drive takes the effort out of mowing your grass.  Engage the drive and the mower will move forward on its own, a huge advantage if you have inclines or a large garden.  Some power driven models have a four speed transmission so you can vary the speed to suit your working conditions.
