Think you can't afford a decent petrol lawnmower in these difficult financial times? Think again.

Thanks to Toro, you can now cut your lawn while cutting your costs. The renowned mower manufacturer's new 50cm Recycler mower packs all the power and performance you'd expect from a petrol machine, but without the premium price tag - instead costing just GBP399 including VAT.

Suitable for medium to large lawns, the 50cm Recycler is equipped with a single-speed 190cc Briggs Stratton Quantum engine and features an easy-pull recoil starter for an instant, one-tug start.

This new mower also of course boasts Toro's famed Recycler technology. By chopping grass cuttings into tiny particles and then firing them back into the lawn where they quickly decompose, this clever mower dramatically reduces garden waste while giving a valuable nutrient and moisture boost for a healthier sward.

Time saved collecting and disposing of cuttings also reduces mowing time by up to a third while the Recycle-On-Demand function allows users to switch instantly between Recycler and conventional mowing should you wish to bag or collect cuttings, or the grass is too long for recycling. A generous 60-litre grass bag also reduces the number of times you need to empty the bag while mowing.

This innovative technology is available across the full Toro mower range, including the recently launched 55cm Steel Deck pedestrian petrol model with handy blade brake control for improved safety and convenience. Also joining the line-up is the Direct Collect Timecutter Z, a zero-turn riding mower perfect for large lawns and grassed areas up to two acres.

Toro consumer products are sold through specialist garden machinery dealers and online as well as selected branches of BQ nationwide. -
