Happy Lawn at last
08-Aug-2014
By
, Oban
"Just finished mowing the lawn with this fantastic machine. Got the Mountfield out of the box and mowing in less than 20 minutes. Absolultely brilliant. Starts no problem and cut our 6" overgrown grass with ease. We have a steep incline on the lawn and the motor/wheels managed perfectly, no slipping or straining. Quick and simple to empty the 55ltr bag is huge. We can't sing the praises of this lawnmower enough!"

Excellent Mower
02-Jul-2014
By
, North Hertfordshire
"The mower was very easy to assemble and took only half an hour. It started easily and tackles the slopes and irregularities of my lawns very well. Very pleased with the results.
My only gripe is that you have to buy and fill the engine with oil before starting. While I understand that the engine cannot be pre-filled, I believe the oil should be supplied as part of the purchase price of the mower.

Terrific piece of kit
26-May-2014
By
, Chichester
"Bought this for the front garden and it did a tremendous job with the mulching attachment fitted. I was so impressed I took on the slightly longer grass of the back garden of 1 acre. I was staggered how well the mulching works leaving very little residue. Out compost heap is overflowing, but hope not to be using that again for a while.
Hard to rate reliability as only had a few days.
With a £100 off, don't buy anything else.
PS: Oil not provided so you need 1 litre."

A well deserved reputation
20-Aug-2014
By
, Derbyshire
"never had a self propelled lawnmower before and now I have one will never go back to the push versions - it does save time and back ache. Easy to get started, very reliable, mower is powerful in good conditions but where grass/weeds are long struggles and even more if there's a little shower/rain. Only thing I would liked, to help save on maintenance costs is more information on how to do a basic service to keep it running without having to spend £££ taking it for a annual service costing £50-£90.
Did find some manufacture thinnings/bits in the petrol tank that meant it had to be emptied and cleaned out - but this was only minor. Crass box is big but basic for the market.

Good piece of Kit !
25-Jun-2014
By

"Easy to assemble, apart from grass bag which was a bit of a fiddle.
Starts quite readily, and dealt with my overgrown grass with ease.
Have not yet used the mulch facility, but that appears to be a very useful addition.
Too early to comment on reliability.
Well pleased !!

Difficult to Assemble
02-Jun-2014
By
, London
"Bought this mower and after trying to assemble the handle gave up because the threads would not line up. The replacement was not much better but after a long time fiddling around with the bolts it went together. Not sure why the oil cap resembles a piece of lego as this is also difficult to remove. Lawnmower works well though and the grassbox is adequate."

"A good mower, starts well, easy to use, and the mulch plug feature is excellent. The front and back wheels adjust with a single lever, and it feels reasonable robust."

Good for the money - but....
01-Aug-2014
By
, South East
"Bought this to replace my old machine, assembled it easily, started fine, cut lawn fine with the mulcher plug still fitted. It's a nice speed on the self propelled setting and very light to push around off it. Great so far.
Subsequently decided to give it a closer shave, whereupon the mulcher didn't deal well with volume and left ridges of grass on the lawn, despite going over it again.
Removed the mulcher plug and put the grass box on. The rear flap n the mower only covers about half of the handle recess on the grass box, and irritatingly bits of grass and dust blow straight out of it, and the handle itself gets buried in clippings. Not to mention resultant hay fever...!
Perhaps it was just too dry and dusty, but even so you'd think they'd have designed it to do a bit better than it does in this mode.
So all in all, good value for what it is, but disappointingly, not perfect.

Don't ask too much of it
22-Jun-2014
By
, Suffolk
"I bought this to replace a similar, 10 year old, Mountfied that I use for the bits round trees and on the path areas that my ride-on can't get to. I assumed this would be fairly similar in performance to my old one but it isn't. It is very short on power and really can't cope with long or rough grass. It works well enough on a well tended lawn but that's its limit. If you want to keep your lawn pristine it may well be fine but give it 100mm of rough grass and it either clogs up or stalls."
