Featuring a six-blade cutting cylinder, variable cutting height adjustment, a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard petrol engine and front and rear rollers, the LawnMaster 400 is engineered to produce a fine striped finish on small to medium sized lawns.

Traditional rear roller cylinder lawnmowers have long been used by many professional gardeners and landscapers to achieve a pristine striped finish on fine turf; from ornamental lawns to tennis courts and football pitches, anywhere you see the instantly recognisable alternating stripe effect on a quality lawn there is a good chance that a rear roller cylinder mower has been instrumental in its creation. The LawnMaster 400 Twin Drive Reel is a rear roller cylinder mower manufactured by Steelfort, designed to produce outstanding cutting performance with a fine striped finish on small to medium sized lawns.

There are a number of design elements of the LawnMaster 400 which make it particularly well suited to maintaining high quality lawns. Foremost among these is the six-blade cutting cylinder; unlike rotary mowers, cylinder mowers cut grass between two blades with a precise scissor-like effect, producing a cleaner cut which helps promote healthy lawn growth. Moreover, the LawnMaster 400 also features variable cutting height adjustment (7mm-30mm) controlled via a plastic handwheel; this means that it is simple to adjust the cutting height of the mower to suit the conditions of your lawn, which helps you to achieve the best results possible as the seasons change throughout the year.

Excellent results are further assured by the mower’s front and rear rollers, the latter of which is responsible for producing a crisply defined stripe as you mow. The LawnMaster 400’s twin drive system, which powers both the cutting cylinder and the rear roller, utilises a vigorous 81cc Briggs & Stratton 2.4hp Vanguard engine, built with a cast iron sleeve for an extended service life. The rear roller drive system offers fantastic versatility as it can be engaged to drive the mower forward in open areas of grass, or disengaged to allow the machine to be used as a traditional push mower in situations where greater levels of control are required. All of the above combines to make the LawnMaster 400 a machine ideal for anyone looking to achieve a premium quality finish on a small to medium sized lawn.

About Lawnmaster
Lawnmaster is the Lawnmowers Direct own brand garden and lawn care range. Manufactured to our own design and specification in a high-tech factory, the Lawnmaster range includes a variety of effective horticultural tools which provide superb results, pleasing ease of use and great value for money.

The Lawnmaster range contains something for every occasion. The XYM158-1C is a petrol rotary lawnmower with a 42cm cutting width ideal for use in small to medium sized gardens. Powered by a 123cc four-stroke OHV engine, this hand-propelled machine also features a 50 litre grass bag and an easy to adjust cutting height system to make it a great entry level machine into the world of petrol lawnmowers. The XYM168-2, meanwhile, offers everything that the XYM158-1C does but with a slightly larger 135cc engine, an extended 46cm cutting deck and a self-propulsion system to make it easier to tackle larger lawns.

The Lawnmaster XYM-188, however, is something a little bit different. A powerful 4-in-1 self-propelled petrol mower designed to offer great versatility in the garden. Driven by a potent 173cc OHV four-stroke engine and featuring a 56cm cutting width and 65 litre grass bag, the XYM-188 is great on larger lawns and fitted with a 4-in-1 cutting system to allow you to quickly adapt the mower to your particular needs. The four cutting modes offered include traditional cut and collection, side discharge, rear discharge and mulching (the side and rear discharge options are most effective when cutting longer grass, while the mulching mode provides a convenient, collection free way of maintaining a tidier, healthier lawn). All Lawnmaster mowers are also built to be tough, easy to use and reliable, providing superb cutting power for those on a budget.

For more precise trimming and cutting, the Lawnmaster range also includes a powerful brushcutter and a brilliant 4-in-1 multi-tool system. The STBC330 Petrol Brushcutter is powered by a hardworking 32.5cc two-stroke petrol engine and comes complete with both dual nylon line trimmer head and a potent brushcutter blade, making it easy to switch between light trimming and heavier clearance work. The MT330 4-in-1 Multi-Tool, meanwhile, features a 32.6cc two-stroke engine and is supplied with four interchangeable cutting heads (line trimmer, brushcutter, hedgetrimmer and chainsaw pole) to make it a complete garden care solution without the expense of purchasing separate machines.

Additional products include the Lawnmaster ST-MC415 Mini Tiller and a Log Saw Horse with Chainsaw Clamp, and we are always looking to expand the range further. All LawnMaster products also come with our one year warranty to ensure added peace of mind, so for effective lawn maintenance solutions at a price that won’t break the bank there is sure to be a LawnMaster machine which suits your needs.
