Etesia mower for sale

Posted by Mr Bradley Goodman on October 20, 2014 at 20:19 1 Comment

i bought an etesia hydro 100 mower earlier this year. It's an excellent mower in the wet an fits in the back of my long wheel base transit. Etesias are known to be one of the best brands on the market for mowers.
The mower isn't practical for my needs because we now do a few gardens a day instead of one and don't need it, I only bought it in March.

I will post photos soon,
We are based in Essex,

I paid £3500 for it so would be looking for somewhere around that.
