Scott Donald, a lawn care enthusiast, talks to us about why he eventually purchased a Countax mower and why he wishes he’d bought one earlier, in the latest edition of the Countax blog.
“So why did I decide to choose a Countax machine? It’s simple really. I wanted to be able to collect wet grass clippings and create the perfect striped lawn finish. I live in the north of the UK and we get a lot of rain.
Having tried 3 other makes of lawn tractor I decided to purchase a Countax C60 machine with the optional Powered Grass Collector (PGC). I bought a second-hand machine which was less than a year old with extremely low hours and at a good price.
This season has been one of mainly cutting wet and thick grass due to the typical British weather conditions of sun and a lot of rain. Having spent many hours previously trying to cut wet lawns to no avail, I was skeptical this machine would make my working day any easier. How wrong I was! Cutting grass is now a pleasure; knowing regardless of how wet the grass is I can still cut it. I know that my Countax fitted with the powered grass collector will always create a fantastic finish; not only at cutting the grass but collecting it and leaving a finish that looks professional.
I’m one of those people who likes to cut a lawn and be able to leave stripes as I cut. This used to be time consuming as I had to cut the lawn then go over it again with a separate roller, to get the finish I desired. Not only did this take awhile but it also meant I needed to remove my collector, so I was able to attach the roller. No longer is this the case! I can now cut the lawn quickly and efficiently and the striping is done simultaneously. What a result!
Not only has the machine impressed me, but other people have also commented on the finish it leaves.
All in all, I would say is a Countax garden tractor is the best purchase I have made for lawn care and if you’re looking for a machine that leaves an exceptional finish, this is the mowing solution you need!”
