Firstly this involves a specially designed mulching plug (included with the mower) being fitted before use to keep the cuttings under the deck instead of them being moved to the collector bag when mowing. Secondly, when you start mowing, the cuttings are kept under the cutting deck they are then shredded to create finely cut trimmings which are then redistributed back into the lawn via powerful airflow. Thirdly, this mulch is then left to rot and eventually disappear adding more nutrients to the garden.Storage of the Mountfield HP42 is made much easier with its foldable handle which will help it keep a small profile when put away.¬†As you would expect from a quality British designed brand, Mountfield stands by its products and offers a 2-year warranty.
