The Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort-Plus Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower
Oleo-Mac is one of Italy’s top-selling garden machinery brands. They offer excellent value for money and come with an attractive price, it’s probably why they are one of the best selling brands on our website.
Coming from a commercial point of view, I have always found it difficult to find a machine that does exactly what you wanted to do. However, quite a few manufacturers are now offering the option to collect, mulch or discharge the grass clippings, either onto the lawn or into a grass collector. The Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort-Plus Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower does exactly this.
I’m a great fan of mulching as mulching is like using a natural green manure. Mulching makes a lawn stay greener for longer, especially in dry weather. Traditionally, a rotary mower is designed to throw the grass out of the cutting deck to make the most of engine power. However, with mulching, the mower is designed to keep the grass inside the cutting deck to cut the grass into multiple pieces, therefore creating a green manure.
Mulching is most effective and efficient when the grass is dry. Although you can still cut your lawn and mulch when it’s wet, it’s just that the results won’t be quite so good or efficient.
To mulching effectively your lawn needs to be mowed at least once a week, especially in the present year as we have had plenty of rain and the grass is growing extremely well! The great thing is that the Oleo-Mac also has a collection box, so if the grass is wet or becomes slightly long in the grass can be collected and composted.
Please note that the mulch plug is optional, although at the time of writing the mulch clerk is included for free. I would fully recommend ordering the mulch plug for this mower. In this way, you are able to get the most out of your machine.
As I mentioned earlier in this post the Oleo-Mac Lawnmower comes with a 51 cm cut, which is an approximately 20-inch cutting deck. The cutting height is adjusted by a single lever, adjustment heights range from 28 to 75 mm. The cutting deck is constructed of steel with a powder-coated paint finish for extra protection. The mower comes with a generous 70 L collection bag, however, I would try and mulch as much grass as possible.
I always prefer to have a mower that drives itself, it’s much easier than having to push a lawnmower! I appreciate there’s an added cost to having a mower that drives itself, however, I believe it’s worth every penny.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort-Plus Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower drives the two rear wheels. It’s important to choose a lawnmower that has rear-wheel drive. Unfortunately, there are a few manufacturers that have decided to make their four-wheel mowers front-wheel drive. This is a very poor idea, due to the fact that when you turn the mower you will normally lift the front up slightly, therefore, losing the drive.
The ground speed of the Oleo-Mac lawnmower is set at 3.6 km/h a comfortable walking pace.
The Oleo-Mac is fitted with a 166cc Emak four-stroke engine. The engine employs the latest overhead valve technology for excellent fuel economy and low emissions. Starting is straightforward and carried out with the traditional recoil start.
The Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort-Plus Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower comes with foldable handles which is ideal for storage and transport.
With 78 reviews and a 4.6 out of a 5-star rating, the Oleo-Mac is definitely worth taking a look at. At the time of writing the Oleo-Mac lawn mower comes with a free mulch plug. To my mind, this should be standard equipment as is important to get the most out of your machine. With a five year peace of mind warranty, the Oleo-Mac G53-TK Comfort-Plus Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower definitely has to be worth a look.
