We round up some of the latest and greatest "great outdoors" new products.

LawnMaster offers the best of both worlds

LawnMaster’s 58V Lithium Fusion Mower promises the best of both worlds with the latest technology in a lithium power head and an 18-inch lightweight alloy chassis made in New Zealand. It comes with with a 4Ah battery providing up to 60 minutes of mow time and operation is incredibly easy, not to mention quiet and almost vibration-free. Further features include an adjustable cut height and 45-Litre catch. It’s backed by a LawnMaster three-year warranty and lifetime chassis guarantee.

Kettle BBQ with the Master-Touch

Few will be surprised to learn that Weber has recently launched another cookbook. Weber’s Ultimate BBQ features more than 100 all-new recipes from entrees to mains, vegetable dishes and even desserts, and there are 750 step-by-step photos for visual guidance.

Put the recipes to the test on Weber’s new Master-Touch Kettle with its 57cm Gourmet Barbecue System cooking grill. P-shaped vents in the bowl are conducive to smoking and low and slow cooking and the charcoal “V” grate helps you create and maintain the heat and flavour. Added convenience comes from a tuck-away lid holder and an iGrill-ready bracket for the Bluetooth thermometer.

New McGregor’s garden tools

McGregor’s Ash Wood garden hand tools promise to make light work of common garden chores. The 9T rake is designed for removing leaves and garden waste from places a big rake can’t get to and its flat tines collect, rather than stab, the leaves. The hand cultivator, with its mirror polished stainless steel head and Ash handle, is ideal for breaking up soil and weeding between garden plants. And the durable trowel is a versatile product when planting or potting plants, weeding, and mixing additives.

High-performance pruning

The latest additions to the Freund range include GA54 pruning shears that are equipped with a gear mechanism for more effective cutting performance. The non-stick coated blades ensure a reduced friction resistance for a clean and powerful cut while lightweight and break-proof plastic handles are fitted with comfortable oval grips. An alternative model is the RS25 with lever force transmission by ratchet, thus demanding minimal effort from its user.

Lopper for narrow spaces

With its flexible and height-adjustable aluminium handle, the Gardena SlimCut Pruning Lopper has an enormous range. The handle can be adapted to the user’s body height, encouraging a working position that relieves the strain on the back, and its extra-slim cutting head is ideal for thinning out dense bushes and shrubs. Precision-ground blades with a non-stick coating guarantee an accurate cut while the integrated two-stage gear provides optimum cutting force. The gear can be shifted from a 1:12 transmission for thick branches to a 1:6 transmission for quick cutting of thin branches. Comes with a 25-year warranty.

Gas and charcoal with the same barbeque

The Gasmate Hydra Combination BBQ lets you enjoy the convenience of a three-burner gas BBQ and/or the flavour of charcoal. It features dual hoods for isolated cooking zones, and you can cook low and slow over charcoal on one side or hot and fast over gas on the other. Key features include: double-skinned, powder-coated roasting hoods; stainless steel fascia with powder coated side shelves, cabinet trolley and doors; stainless steel tubular burners and enamel flame tamers; and a cast iron hotplate and grill with enamel warming rack. A twin-vent system aids heat control on the charcoal BBQ and Piezo ignition on each burner ensures easy lighting.
