- Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive E/S Rear-Roller Lawnmower with Variable Speed & Electric Start (Code: 491J)
Superbly well built and incorporating numerous high-end features, this high-performance rear-roller mower from Hayter will make short work of the larger lawn.
The Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive E/S is driven by a powerful 163cc Briggs & Stratton 675iS-Series InStart® engine with a stress-busting lithium-ion battery-powered electric starter. As with all B & S engines, the 675-Series models employ OHV technology for impressive fuel-economy; smooth, low-noise operation; and superior long-term reliability.
The ground-speed on the Harrier 48 Autodrive can be varied in infinite increments between 1.5 and 3mph. This not only aids manoeuvrability, as you can slow down when negotiating obstacles; but also allows you operate at the most effective pace for the grass-type and weather-conditions.
Impressively durable, the Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive E/S Lawnmower is built around a rust-resistant aluminium chassis and runs on long-lasting ball-bearing wheels (bearing mounted wheels won’t stiffen up with age, as can happen with bush-mounted wheels).
It’s equipped with a cutter-bar friction-disc, which brings with it a lifetime guarantee against crankshaft bending; and it features a hardwearing poly deck-liner, which improves the quality of cut, while also reducing blade-noise.
In order to ensure you can deal with changing grass-types and weather conditions, Hayter have equipped this model with a wide-ranging seven-stage height-of-cut (13 – 60mm) that’s adjustable using a single counterbalanced lever.
It’s fitted with a high-capacity 70-litre grassbag, which ensures you’ll be able to get lots done between emptying-stops; and it has a safety-enhancing OPC (‘deadman’s handle’) that eliminates any chance of accidental injury.
Other notable features include a split differential rear-roller for increased traction and scuff-free turning; and a folding handlebar for more compact transport and storage.

Good solid lawnmower
Review by Mark Nicholls / (Posted on 09/04/2015)
Good solid lawnmowerReview by Mark Nicholls / (Posted on 09/04/2015)This is a great lawnmower. Started first time, provides a superb cut to the lawn and mowing the edges on "slow" is straightforward.
It's a bit on the heavy side when trying to manoeuvre tight corners, but other than that a delight to use.
I had noticed people complaining about the grass box jumping off, but I have not experienced that - it just sits there and collects until it's full. It also holds a lot too.

Came highly recommended and doesn't disappoint!

Came highly recommended and doesn't disappoint!Review by Rob Ordidge / (Posted on 30/04/2014)Bought this (my first petrol mower) on the strength of a friend's recommendation (he also has a Harrier 48 model).
Not cheap but I intend to own it for a long time, and the quality it exudes suggests this ambition will be easily achieved. Also looks like it'll save me over an hour a week over the time its electric rotary predecessor took to do both lawns, so very happy already!
Service from MowDirect was also superb - product arrived quickly and undamaged.
Easy to assemble and operate. Minor mishap when the grab handle for the recoil start snapped (I know, it's a key start, so what was I thinking of...?). Mentioned it to Customer Service and replacement grab handle was delivered without quibble within 36 hours. Very impressed indeed! If I need to replace any other garden machinery I shall give them a look for sure.

Overall a great machine

Overall a great machineReview by Paul Turner / (Posted on 01/08/2013)A great machine, but a very odd place for the battery as the shape of the compartment lid means it has to be placed on its side.

An excellent lawn mower for medium sized lawns
Review by Tony Rubin / (Posted on 30/07/2013)
An excellent lawn mower for medium sized lawnsReview by Tony Rubin / (Posted on 30/07/2013)My 1999 Hayter 48 finally gave up the ghost in July 2013 and I had no hesitation in purchasing the latest equivalent model as a replacement. I like the key start option because I'm lazy but it is not essential. The mower arrived with a can of oil and the instructions were easy to follow - all you need to do is attach the handles, fit the grassbox and charge up the battery. I am looking forward to at least another 14 years of relatively trouble free mowing!
