Westwood’s various garden mowers, handmade in Oxfordshire using only the finest components and heavy-gauge materials, are renowned for their toughness, power and versatility. However, Westwood didn’t allow this well deserved reputation for excellence to discourage them from building a mower with an even more powerful engine and a cutting deck capable of both clearing scrubland and maintaining a fine striped finish on a formal lawn. Thus, the V230D was born; an industrious diesel powered high grass mulching garden tractor that excels in just about every way imaginable.

Key to the brilliance of this outstanding machine is its tough 107cm high grass mulching deck, featuring six hardened steel blades and a sturdy steel housing which forces weeds, nettles and high grass into the mulching chamber. Heavy-duty chains prevent the cut material from leaving the chamber until it is fully mulched, whereupon the clippings are returned to the soil in order to recycle valuable moisture and nutrients. When used in conjunction with the optional powered grass collector the V230D can also be used for traditional cut and collection mowing, utilising a spindle of brushes to sweep clippings into a 390 litre hopper; moreover, the collector’s integrated rear roller will produce an iconic striped effect perfect for formal lawns as you mow. Further convenience and versatility are provided by the inclusion of ten-position height of cut adjustment (12mm-101mm) for added precision, while electric lift and emptying makes for quick and hassle free clipping disposal.

Another important feature of this impressive mower is its powerful 784cc Yanmar diesel engine. As diesel burns more efficiently than petrol the V230D produces greater torque than a comparable petrol mower, as well as being more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run with frequent use. Fully hydrostatic transmission, meanwhile, makes the V230D simple and intuitive to drive, as well as ensuring that you have the control you need to make traversing complicated areas of your garden simple. For added convenience and safety the V230D also features a helpful performance indicator display to provide information about the operational status of your mower to ensure optimum performance, as well as an impact-resistant bullbar and a failsafe parking break. So whether you are looking to maintain a fine, even finish on a formal lawn or tame a wildly overgrown orchard, Westwood’s V230D is a ride-on mower with the power, precision and flexibility to fulfil all of your mowing needs.

About Westwood
Westwood 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).
