Screwfix boosts landscaping and outdoor ranges

With the gardening season already in full swing, Screwfix has given a boost to its landscaping and outdoor product range to ensure that customers are up-to-date with the latest equipment and deals available.

The perfect lawn:

World renowned suppliers of turf and landscape maintenance equipment, Toro, are a new addition to the range with the inclusion of two lawn mowers. The mowers have many labour-saving and eco-friendly features that make mowing easier whilst producing a great finish including a recycler which cuts the grass into extra fine particles and puts it back on the lawn.

The latest additions from German brand Solo are also showcased in the Screwfix range. Solo's excellent chainsaws and brush cutters can be used in both agricultural and landscape gardening environments, perfect for the busy professional landscaper.

Brand new outdoor power tools:

Screwfix now stocks a comprehensive range of Makita outdoor power products from trimmers and chainsaws to brush cutters and lawn mowers, the professional landscaper will be spoilt for choice this season. The MM4 brush cutter and line trimmers have 4-stroke engines which are easy to use and better for the environment than a 2-stroke equivalent. There is no mixing of oil and fuel which leads to easy maintenance, and the oiling system is revolutionary making the tools easy to use at any angle.

Back to basics:

For use when working near live cables, Spear and Jackson Insulated Hand Tools have been included in the new product range at Screwfix. From pick axes to crowbars, all products are tested to the standard BS 8020:2002 mark.

Also new to the landscaping and outdoor range, includes top brand Bahco Professional. Its Heavy Duty Bypass Lopper is a must in any professional landscaping tool kit - perfect for cutting extremely thin and tough branches on all types of trees and vines thanks to the blades being fully hardened, which also gives smooth finishes. It has a long reach for overhead cutting which makes it easy to use with shock absorbing buffers between the handles.

Top of the range hoses:

Two varieties of Hozelock hoses have been added to the Screwfix product range. One is perfect for use on construction sites as it provides reinforced protection from all types of weather. The other is a robust irrigation hose with UV protection and both hoses can carry water with temperatures from -15 to 60°.

All products from the Screwfix landscaping and outdoor range can be ordered for home or site delivery with many lines stocked in one of over 160 Screwfix branches.
