superb service, superb product
15 May 2013
By shoppingsusie
, Oxfordshire
"This mower was well described, arrived the following morning extrememl well packaged and went together realtively easily. Once assembled it was put to work and tackled a long lawn easily, a few days later we re did it on a short cut and again, very pleased. The self propelling is a real bonus but it goes quite fast! A good sturdy mower, quite expensive but I hope it proves reliable over time and then it will be worth every penny-well done screfix, brilliant service as ever"

Value for money mower
19 Apr 2012
By CaptainBeaky
, Warwickshire
"When our very expensive Honda mower staryted to play up - and the grass was growing almost faster than we could cut it - Screwfix's Mountfield offer came along.
It was too good to miss and we've no regrets at all. Okay, we prefer two front wheels and a rear roller rather than four wheels. But the difference in price that makes to mowers is more than we can afford right now!
And let's face it, for 230 quid - less a penny - not having stripes on the lawn is a small sacrifice when the Mountfield makes such a good job of cutting the grass."

"What great value, this mower was less than the previous mountfield that I purchased 12 years ago in a well known store and is self powered. It was easy to assemble and works brilliantly."

Petrol wins over electric.
4 Apr 2011
By Gardengrump
, Solihull
"Finally switched to petrol from electric and very pleased with the result. Cutting the lawn has become a joy instead of a chore.
The Mountfield is simple and straightforward, it comes assembled apart from attaching the handle and putting the grass box together, both jobs easy and straight forward. The tool is supplied to tighten the handle screws.
Oil has to be added before use and that was more difficult than expected, with the engine being new the oil is clean, not black as in a car so its difficult to get a clear and accurate reading from the dip stick, not wishing to overfill as it's harder to remove oil than put in, I had to add several small quantities and wait for it to settle before hitting the target. A better method would have been to measure out the recommended amount for this mower which is .6 litre and fill in one go.
Once oiled up, put in petrol set the throttle to choke and pull the starting cord, mine took two light pulls and then a sharp one to burst into life - then its a joy to use. I like to burn some calories while gardening so I tended to push more than engage the drive, but if you want to cut the lazy way I found engaging the drive after an initial push to get the mower moving forward worked best. Engaging it when the mower was stationary and on low revs caused the engine to stall. I think that was more bad technique on my behalf than a fault of the mower.
Either way it cuts the lawn in a fraction of the time it took using electric and the low revving sound of a petrol engine is far more enjoyable to listen too, for me and I presume the neighbours. Wish I'd bought one years ago... basic and good value for money, you'll enjoy using, highly recommended."

Mountfield SP184 Petrol Mower
29 Oct 2010
By XBLACKRAT
, Doncaster
"Wow!! Another brilliant product from Screwfix. The mower is self propelled so cutting all lengths of grass was a doddle. Assembly was a piece of cake. The mower is smart and it does exactly what it says in the description and more. The added bonus is the price from Screwfix coupled with free next day delivery.
Well done Screwfix a quality product from a quality company. Shame there are not six stars.
Highly recommended without reservation.

Great motor mower
18 Apr 2012
By BTX6
, Southampton
"I spent some time looking at various self propelled petrol mowers before buying this one.
I was impressed with free next day delivery
and true to their word it arrived at 11 am and was up and running soon after.
It only needs the handle assembly to be bolted together then add oil and fuel and away it goes.
Started easily and cut very well.
The height adjustment is easy with just one lever, I found the lowest setting a bit too low for my bumpy lawn and it would dig in at the front
but otherwise it is very good.
