Purchase a lawnmower starter kit with your new petrol lawnmower for some useful extras to help your lawnmower perform better for longer. Available in two varieties (one for Honda engines, and one for Briggs and Stratton engines).


Our lawnmower starter kit includes a choice engine oil, Briggs & Stratton fuel fit additive (250ml), a plastic 5 litre capacity fuel can, and a 4” plastic funnel with a gauze filter.

When you’ve purchased a brand new lawnmower, you’re probably going to want to play with your new toy straight away. For that reason, we provide each of our customers with the correct grade of oil for their machine free with purchase of a petrol mower. You’ll also need petrol (or alkylate fuel like Aspen), but unfortunately we’re unable to ship fuels so you will need to purchase either petrol from your local petrol station, or Aspen for your nearest dealer. We want your lawnmower to work hard for you for years to come, and so we strongly recommend a few other items to help improve the running of your new mower. This useful starter kit includes some lawnmower essentials.

Fuel should always be stored in a clean, dry fuel can to prevent contaminants damaging your lawnmower. Even specks of dirt or small fragments of rust mixed in with the petrol can cause running problems, fuel system damage, and performance issues. To alleviate this, our lawnmower starter kit contains a new plastic fuel can. We prefer plastic to metal jerry cans as the metal can rust and flake off into your fuel, causing blockages in the carburetor jets. We have also included a 4 inch funnel with gauze to filter out anything potentially problematic for your engine – if you buy nothing else for your mower, a funnel with a filter is really a must.

To help the fuel last longer, you will find a bottle of Briggs & Stratton fuel fit in your box. This will help maintain a high level of performance, prevent corrosion, and help stabilise fuel for up to three years. Without treatment, modern fuels can degrade in as little as 30 days, and stale fuel can result in significant starting problems (which is why we recommend draining your mower of petrol before winter storage). The 250ml bottle of Fuel Fit is enough to treat 25 litres of unleaded petrol. Add 10ml of fuel fit to every litre of petrol in the fuel can and mix well before adding to the engine.

Our kits are available with two different grades of four-stroke oil – 10W40 for lawnmowers with Honda engines, or SAE30 oil for Briggs & Stratton engines (as well as other non-Honda engine manufacturer). This starter kit offers excellent value, and with everything you need to get started, as well as significantly improve the running life of your lawnmower, you’ll find that they are well worth investing in.

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.
