Husqvarna LC348VE Petrol Lawnmower

  • Product Details

    One of Husqvarna’s premium residential mowers for the more demanding user, the self-propelled rear wheel drive LC348VE is ideal for use in medium to large-sized gardens. The zinc-plated, corrosion-resistant steel cutting deck ensures that this mower will have a long service life, and also provides a generous cutting width of 48cm. The LC348VE is also highly versatile, offering three ways to dispose of your grass cuttings: cut and collection, rear ejection and mulching.

    For the cut and collection option, the LC348VE is equipped with a large 60 litre capacity hard down-vented grass collector. The collector’s large size, ventilated design and Husqvarna’s advanced flow technology combine to ensure that optimum air flow is generated for enhanced collection performance, meaning you won’t have to make as many stops to dispose of clippings. The collector is also easily removed, as it simply lifts through the handlebars. The rear discharge option, meanwhile, is useful when the grass being mown is overgrown and trickier to cut, ejecting the clippings back out of the mower and preventing the cutting blade from becoming clogged up. Finally, the mulching option involves cutting the grass repeatedly inside the mower before the clippings are then redistributed onto the ground and pushed down into the soil. This allows you to recycle the grass clippings and use them as a natural fertilizer, as mulched clippings will decompose and promote the growth of healthy green grass. Moreover, this option also saves the time you would otherwise spend collecting and disposing of the cuttings yourself, thereby improving overall efficiency. Height of cut, meanwhile, is adjusted via a single mechanically-assisted lever, giving you the choice of five different heights between 25mm and 75mm and providing the versatility to tackle a wide variety of grass conditions.

    As the LC348VE is self-propelled it is much less demanding to use than a push-propelled mower, making the mowing process a lot quicker and easier to manage, with AutoWalk capability providing variable speed up to a maximum of 5.4km/h. Propulsion comes from the mower’s powerful 190cc Briggs & Stratton 650e Series engine, guaranteeing an easy start every time and requiring no priming before use. This model also has an electric start function for maximum convenience; simply turn the key for instant power and performance. Double ball bearing wheels, meanwhile, provide smooth movement, their durability ensuring a long life. Controls are easily accessed via the handlebar, which can also be adjusted so that you can find a height comfortable for you. Furthermore, as the handlebar folds away, storing the LC348VE when you have finished mowing is a simple matter.

    A stainless steel bumper provides safety for the mower, lessening the effect of any accidental collisions which occur while in use, protecting you and helping to boost the LC348VE’s already impressive durability. For added convenience, meanwhile, a hose pipe connection allows you to rinse out the cutting deck quickly and easily, and with the blade in motion even cleans the underside of the deck to help ensure continued optimum performance and a long service life. Weight: 42kg

    About Husqvarna
    Believe it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.

    Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
