Saws and cutters are on offer too

CHAINSAWS and brushcutters are now on offer from Lincs-based Spaldings.

Built by Alpina, the chainsaw range comprises two models: One comes with a 40cm (16in) bar and 38cc petrol engine, the other 50cm (20in) bar and 68cc engine. Both have electronic ignition and an anti-vibration system. Prices are £194 and £463, respectively.

The two brushcutters are designed for use either with a metal blade or strimmer line. A 41cc petrol motor powers the bigger VIP42 (£359), while the VIP25 semi-professional model (£262) uses a 24cc unit (01522-500600).
