New lawn and garden products to look out for

by editor

In 1968 Parklands was the first company to introduce brush cutters to Australia. Today, Parklands’ range of lawn and garden products now includes lawn mowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, chippers, log splitters, riders, engines and everything in between.

You can be sure that there is something for everyone and a few new machines to their wide range of existing products. They have a new 26cc Telescopic Pole Saw (PPS-450Y), with a 2-stroke engine, chrome plated cylinder for long engine life and extends up to 4m. They have also added a couple of new chainsaws: a 40cc chainsaw 16″ (PSW-41Y) and the 49cc chainsaw 20″ (PSW-52Y). All new machines comply with the Euro V emission standards.

18” Super Flow Push Button Start
Introducing one of the easiest mowers to use with stacks of features. Built with reinforced comfort handles and reinforced Super Flow deck with four blade Mulch and Catch cutting system for maximum performance. Couple this with a powerful Briggs & Stratton Push Button Start engine and you have one of the best mowers for ease of starting, superior cut and easy to push due to its large double ball bearing wheels and light weight at only 26kg.

Ideal for the young or old and even some contractors where they have numerous average blocks to mow. The mower is 10-point single lever height adjustable for maximum versatility and comes with a twoyear warranty.

Log Splitters
Handle the hardest logs. Whether you are looking to enjoy the ambience of your wood burning fireplace more frequently, or you’re planning to stay warm this winter by utilising a wood burning stove, Parklands has you covered. Ranging from 18-35 tonne, they have the range to handle most jobs from the PLS-18 tonne splitter, which is compact yet strong enough to handle our hardwoods with a 3″ ram and can handle logs up to 21″ (510mm) long. Its larger brothers, the PLS-28 with a 4” ram and PLS-35 with 5” ram can handle logs up to 24″ (610mm) and can be used in both horizontal and vertical positions for greater convenience with larger logs. All log splitters come with a standard tow hitch for ease of transport. You don’t have to look any further for your log splitting needs.

Zero Turn Mowers
You won’t have to spend too long in the summer heat with the new range of Zero Turn Mowers from Parklands. Cut with ease and precision with the new Challenger PZT-52R-K. This feature packed Zero Turn mower comes with an American Commercial Kohler engine as well as the rugged USA Hydro-Gear transmission. The large 52″ deck gets its strength from a combination of heavy gauge fabricated deck with reinforced 7-gauge top and leading edge. Superior design makes for increased mowing with less maintenance, due to the combination of high tip speed with a 5 1/2″ (140mm) deep deck allowing it to process more grass without clogging at higher speeds and thus greater productivity. All Challenger mowers are designed specifically to minimise service and downtime. Comfort also equals productivity and Challenger lets you mow faster more comfortably and safely. This series also comes in two other models, the 42″ cutting deck (PZT-42R-K) and the 48″ cutting deck (PZT48R-K).

Features:
• POWER – Powered by a Commercial Kohler I 725cc OHV engine, providing loads of power for the job.
• COMFORT – Shock absorbing seat and footrest aid in eliminating vibrations to minimise body fatigue.
• EFFICIENT – CleverCut™ 5 ½’ deep deck floats with the help of anti-scalp wheels to get an accurate cut with a high-quality finish.
• CONVENIENT – KwickAdjust™ deck litt allows you to easily raise and lower your deck between 25 – 125 mm, the extra deep heavy-duty deck processes more grass faster for increased productivity.
• DURABLE/SAFE – Durability is achieved through strong construction, steel guards, reinforced deck, large 8″ spindles and safety is achieved with Roll Over Protection, wide wheels and centre mounted fuel tank to achieve the lowest centre of gravity for ground hugging safety.

The new range of Zero Turns come with roll over protection as standard, with a sunshade as an optional extra. All models come with 2 years domestic and 6 months commercial warranty.
