Choose your weapon wisely! The garden tools you need for Spring

Spring has sprung, the garden is in need of a little care and attention, and you’re not quite sure where to start…

Look no further than the latest in garden power tool technology from the McCulloch Power Li~NK range – arming you with everything you need to get the job done. Best of all, you can use the same battery in all the 

McCulloch battery powered machines and they even have a 4aH battery for even tougher tasks.
Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a grass roots rookie, these top tips to tackle the first gardening jobs of the season should get you off to a great start.

1. Branch out

First things first – assess if there are any overgrown trees in your garden that need a bit of maintenance. For these bigger jobs, there’s the McCulloch Power Li~NK Li 40CS battery chainsaw. Easy to use and low weight, with a 14 inch bar and brushless motor that provides powerful cutting – you’ll be able to slice through branches like butter. Remember to collect any bigger pieces of wood and cut them down further to use on your log burner or chimney ensuring you keep them dry.

2. Hedge your bets

Early spring is the ideal time to prune coniferous hedges and tame any unruly branches ready for the season ahead. Make easy work of this with the McCulloch Power Li~NK Li 40HT battery hedge trimmer, complete with rotating rear handles, meaning you can quickly switch between cutting the sides and top of your hedge – ideal for when you just need to get the job done. Just make sure there are no nesting birds before you start.

3. Tidy garden, tidy mind

Once the bigger jobs are complete, and before you start planning what to plant where, or your first lawn cut of the season, create a blank canvas with the help of the Power Li~NK Li 40GB battery blower. Utilise the variable speed trigger for accurate control whilst clearing up the leaves and debris from your lawn and borders, or engage cruise control for flat out power and maximum comfort. The Li 40BGis the perfect companion for powering through the big spring clean. A garden blower is also particularly useful in helping you collect debris after trimming your hedges.

4. Don't waste a Mow-ment

Maintaining your lawn is often the biggest and most time consuming task of the spring and summer months – from the first cut of the season, to the weekly mows when the weather warms up. However, with the introduction of ROB, our brand new robotic mower – you can avoid spending every Sunday mowing the lawn as ROB does the work for you. 

Fully programmable, quiet and weatherproof, all ROB requires is a simple set up with a charging dock and boundary wire - leaving you with more time to kick back, relax, and enjoy your garden with beer in hand. Just let Rob do the Job!

5. Trim up

Whether you need to trim any overgrown patches of grass before setting ROB loose on it, or you’re adding the finishing touches to your lawn edges, the McCulloch Power Li~NK Li 40T trimmer is the tool for the job. The Power Boost button gives you an injection of power to blast through longer grass or tougher patches of weeds, and its split-shaft also means that you can use a versatile range of different attachments (sold separately) for a variety of different gardening tasks.

6. Cultivate vegetable and flower beds

If you’re really looking to get stuck in and want to your vegetable and flower beds to flourish this spring, you’ll also need a top of the range cultivator to prepare the soil ready for planting. 

Sometimes called a ‘tiller’, a cultivator is used to make the job of digging and surface preparation a breeze. 

The type of cultivator you’ll need will depend on the depth and width of the soil you are tackling. 

It’s also worth remembering that McCulloch cultivators are multipurpose and, depending on size and model, have a range of useful attachments that can be used for a range of additional jobs such as ridging, edging, moss raking and ploughing
