Conventional wisdom dictates that mowing a lawn when it is wet is far from ideal, and better avoided if possible; wet grass takes longer to mow and the heavy wet clippings can gum up the cut and collection systems in your mower, causing clogging. However, you can’t just ignore your lawn forever hoping for a sunny day, especially in Britain, where drizzly Sundays are a national tradition, so sometimes mowing when the ground is wet underfoot is a necessity.
The clever chaps and chapesses at Westwood, however, take pride in designing ride-on mowers specifically suited to mowing British gardens, and as such don’t think that a bit of rain should stop you from enjoying a pristinely mown lawn. Their solution to this apparently intractable meteorological dilemma is their range of powered grass collectors. Rather than blow the clippings into the grass collector as most mowers do, Westwood’s powered collectors use a spindle of brushes rotating at over 2,000 strokes per minute to sweep cut grass and garden debris into the collection bag. As this sweeping system does not rely on maintaining airflow in the same manner as conventional grass collection systems, clogging does not become an issue, even in wet grass. Moreover, as the collector comes complete with a heavy-duty rear-mounted roller, you will also be able to achieve a classic striped finish on your lawn as you mow.
This combination of innovation, efficiency and a high quality finish makes Westwood’s powered grass collectors absolutely essential if you want to get the most out of your ride-on mower.

About WestwoodWestwood is a British manufacturing success story. Based just outside Oxford, the company has been producing high quality, state of the art garden tractors for over thirty years. In that time, Westwood has become a word synonymous with quality among those in the know and Westwood's garden tractors are famous for providing long lasting, superbly reliable performance. This is because every employee is passionate about constantly improving every part of the manufacturing process, with a deep understanding of how their machines perform in real life situations a core part of the development process.
Westwood’s tractors are also a little different from most though, as they are specifically designed to cope with the British climate. As such, all electronic controls are fully weatherproofed, while painted components have been tested with 500 hours of continuous salt spray exposure to ensure they are protected against corrosion. Even more impressive, however, is Westwood’s unique collection system, designed to make it easy to cut wet grass without having to worry about clogging.
Luckily, Westwood garden tractors cut and collect in a totally different way than most lawnmowers as the system doesn’t rely on air flow to collect grass cuttings. Instead, the Westwood collector uses a spindle of brushes driven by the tractor’s power take-off to sweep grass clippings from your lawn and into the hopper, leaving a pristine lawn surface behind in its wake. The Powered Grass Collector is effective in wet or dry conditions and out-performs every other type of collector on the market, ensuring that you can achieve a perfect cut and a tidy finish regardless of the conditions underfoot. Moreover, Westwood’s Powered Grass Collectors are also fitted with a heavy rear roller capable of producing a crisp stripe effect as you mow for an even more luxurious finish.
In addition to this fantastic innovative system, Westwood garden tractors are tough, user-friendly and truly built to last, making them perfect for serious home gardeners and lawn care professionals alike. If you apply online (at http://www.westwoodtractors.com/demo/) you can even request a free home demonstration so that you can see exactly what a Westwood tractor can do (at which point we're pretty sure you’ll decide you want one).
