Any of Westwood’s fine petrol engine ride-on lawnmowers would make an excellent choice for maintaining a large formal lawn. For the very biggest jobs, however, the V230D has a distinct advantage; as well as being handmade to Westwood’s usual exacting standards the V230D is also built with a superbly efficient diesel engine, ideal for situations when no compromise can be made on power or reliability.

The particular engine in question here is a powerful 784cc water-cooled Yanmar three-cylinder diesel engine, built to be quiet running, clean and long-lasting. As diesel engines are typically more energy efficient than petrol engines, the V230D Diesel Garden Tractor produces the greater levels of power and torque required to make mowing even the largest gardens a simple task. Westwood have even designed the V230D Diesel Garden Tractor to make the most of the excess power produced by this impressive engine by including a hybrid-drive system wherein a rear-mounted gearbox is used to drive the cutting deck and power take-off, enabling the use of a range of powered accessories.

The V230D Diesel Garden Tractor’s versatile 127cm three-blade combi-deck is designed to offer two distinct mowing options. When used with the supplied mulching plug the mower lifts and cuts grass before returning the finely mulched clippings to the soil, recycling moisture and nutrients to promote healthy lawn growth. Alternatively, used with the 390 litre powered grass collector (available separately), the V230D offers unparalleled collection performance; Westwood’s unique system utilises a spindle of brushes to sweep clippings into the grass bag, preventing clogging and ensuring great results even in wet grass (music to the ears of any gardener familiar with the often inclement British weather). Furthermore, for even greater control and versatility the V230D also features variable cutting height adjustment (12mm-101mm) controlled via an easy to use lever system.

As with all of Westwood’s garden tractors, the V230D Diesel Garden Tractor also comes with fully hydrostatic transmission for added control when mowing around borders and obstacles. Safety and convenience, meanwhile, are assured thanks to features such as a parking brake, a sturdy bullbar, a dashboard mounted performance indicator, an ergonomically designed driver’s seat (complete with comfortable armrests) and even an integrated cup holder. The V230D thus delivers a level of user friendliness and comfort you perhaps would not expect of such a serious piece of machinery, making achieving a great finish on even larger lawns a hassle free and enjoyable experience.

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).
