Aspen Fuel – Our Guide

Aspen Fuel – Our Guide

We are now distributors for Aspen Fuels, we reccomend their products beacause of the many advantages Aspen Fuels have over regular petrol. Here is a few reasons we advise you to switch to Aspen Fuels. Conventional petrol deteriorates quickly, becoming stale after only 30 days; this can cause starting problems and lack of power. Petrol older than 6 months can cause internal damage to fuel systems, resulting in costly repairs. Aspen fuel is “stable” and will last for 5 years without deteriorating or losing performance. It will not cause any damage to fuel systems. Use of Aspen will also result in a longer life for your machine and a more pleasant working environment for the operator, due to the absence of harmful fumes from the exhaust. Aspen 2T (for 2 stroke engines) benefits from being pre-mixed with 2 stroke oil, eliminating costly mistakes from incorrect mixing at home. Both Aspen 2T and 4T can be purchased from out sales/parts showroom in 5 litre cans, for more information please contact us. PLEASE NOTE: If your machine has been into a service with us recently, your machine has been returned to you with Aspen fuel in its tank to ensure that it will start easily, even after extended storage. We strongly suggest that you continue to use Aspen fuel, but if you wish to revert to standard “pump” petrol, please ensure that you use only fresh petrol, preferably treated with fuel stabiliser. Please dispose of any “pump” petrol more than 3 months old in a safe manner. Problems caused by the addition of stale or contaminated fuel, even straight after a...

Mower Guide

What type of mower? Choosing the right lawn mower will save you time and frustration so here is a brief outline. Petrol lawn mowers are more powerful than electric mowers, can make much lighter work of a large lawn and give you a better finish at the same time. The additional power of a petrol lawn mower can make them the better choice for most mid sized and bigger lawns. Although large petrol mowers are available, if you have a very large lawn you may be interested in our ride on mowers. Petrol mowers are heavy, cost more to buy, cost more to run, are noisier and less environmentally friendly so don’t buy one if any of these reasons put you off, an electric mower maybe more suited to your needs. Lawn Size Lawn size is the biggest consideration when buying any lawn mower. It affects your choice of cutting width, power and whether to buy a self propelled or push mower. The mowing width of a mower is the width of one stripe of mowed lawn. Choosing a width which is too narrow will result in you spending a lot of time going up and down your lawn. However, bigger is not necessarily better as trying to manoeuvre a very large mower around a small lawn is awkward and frustrating. The product description for a mower usually has a recommended lawn size it is suitable for. These tend to be given in square metres (m2), acres, or in relation to the size of a tennis court; to give a rough idea, one tennis court is about 640m2 or...
