We call this the 4n1 mower but some people call it the ultimate, all in one gardening machine. It catches the grass, it mulches, it side discharges and it has a very useful 35mm branch chipper, how good is this!

This is a model that can save you time. It’s wider, not too wide but at 485mm (19”) it will save you time over conventional 16" and 18" models when mowing the lawn. Two other time saving features are, 1/ the mulch plug (mulch the grass neat and tidy without the catcher) and 2/ the Smartchute® - use as a side discharge chute to clear the grass and when you want the groomed clean finish then pop on the catcher.

When you need to clean up the yard or dispose of a few fallen branches or prunnings then use the chipper. It’s very useful and uses a dedicated 5th blade to do the chipping, leave the catcher on to collect the chips. The chipper is very good on palm fronds and will not jam or wrap but will make short work of disposing them.

  • 35mm Branch chipper for everything organic (even palm fronds). Leave the catcher on to collect the chips, they make excellent mulch and compost
  • Handle Lift System (HLS) you will love this, easy for storage, easier for catcher and mulch plug access, good thinking!
  • Time-saving 19” (485mm) cutting width, heavy duty steel deck housing with high arch aerodynamic catching performance - so good we give it a 4yr warranty
  • 4n1 – Cut, catch, side discharge and chipping - catch the grass cleanly wet or dry or mulch the grass for time saving and lawn health benefits
  • Industry best consumer warranties 2 year engine, 4 year steel housing and lifetime catcher
