Mulching lawn mower

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 18:45

High, KT53 is right, we purchased a Qualcast, Brigs and Stratton self propelled petrol mower for £199 from Homebase ,I searched everywhere and looked at loads of mowers and I was very surprised to find such a good mower for that price,it has the choice of mulching as KT says a simple plug in adapter which works very well, easy pull start and very simple to use,so far no probs at all.
