Striped finish with ride on mower
Chesham Town Council Parks and Premises manager Paul Isom swapped his pedestrian mowers with collector boxes for the ISEKI SXG326 ride on mower.
Says Paul: “The SXG326 ride on mower collected with the same striped finish as the pedestrian mower with the added benefit of completing it in a fraction of the time. Its powerful 21hp engine means the mower easily tackles varied terrain whilst completing the jobs quickly with its generous 54” width of cut. The large 600 litre hopper saves valuable hours by limiting the amount of times you need to stop mowing in order to empty the collector.
“Collection of autumn leaves by the SXG326 has been a God send, we are all relieved we no longer have to do all the tiresome work of raking. We couldn’t believe how well the collector picks these up, especially when it’s been raining and everything is sodden and heavy.”

Mower for all weathers
There’s quite a bit of talk on various professional lawn care sites about modifying lawn mowers to achieve better results for cutting wet grass. Read what a professional gardener had to say about the Mountfield S501R PD.
“Well, I can safely say this Mountfield is factory standard and collects well in any weather. It packs a bag extremely well, and it’s taken just one pass over this lawn to remove over one cubic meter of wet grass. I would argue this mower works better than a lot of commercial mowers. If you’re looking for a new lawn mower for residential or even commercial use, you won’t go wrong with this.” – Wild Ground

full flexibility, the desired cutting height can be precisely adjusted. The high-lift blades and aerodynamic housing efficiently lifts the grass, cuts it efficiently and blows the cuttings into the 70 litre grass catcher box, which can be 100% filled.
The body design also allows for easy access and maintenance of working parts, and the comfortable mono handlebar is foldable for easier transportation and storage.
