- Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive E/S Variable-Speed Rear-Roller Lawnmower with InStart® Li-Ion Electric Start (Code: 561J)
This top-of-the-range rear-roller mower from Hayter features a cutting lithium-ion battery-powered starter that eliminates the problems so commonly encountered with conventional pull-type recoil ignition systems.
It has a huge 56cm cutting-width and comes equipped with a high-capacity catcher (70-litres), so it’s ideal for very large-scale domestic use.
The Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive features a variable-speed power-drive, which not only aids manoeuvrability, but also confers enhanced flexibility-of-use (different grass-conditions require different ground-speeds).
It has a split-differential rear-roller for a striped finish and easier turning; and it offers seven preset height-of-cut (13 – 60mm), so varying grass lengths can be effectively dealt with.
Built to provide you with season upon season of unwavering performance, the Harrier 56 has a rust-resistant die-cast aluminium chassis; long-lasting ball-bearing wheels; and a cutter-bar friction-disc that prevents crankshaft-bending.
An ABS polymer deck-liner combines with an aerodynamic finned undercarriage to optimise cut & collect performance; while a convenient quick-fold handle makes it simple to prepare the mower for storage or transport.
Power for this high-performance machine comes from a 190cc Briggs & Stratton 875iS-Series Ex InStart® engine with ReadyStart®. Built in the U.S. to the most exacting standards, these four-stroke OHV units offer reduced emissions and quick starts without the need for carburettor-priming. Their OHV design ensures fuel-costs, vibration and noise are all minimised.

A Quality ProductReview by Colin / (Posted on 25/04/2017)Easy to assemble and start. Just waiting for dry weather to try it out... I think the roller and extra weight will help to improve our lawns.

Great MowerReview by David / (Posted on 20/10/2016)Solid build. Worked straight out of box - which was nice. Has halved the time taken to mow the lawn - and it looks good too.
I highly recommend the electric start. Feels like cheating, but makes starting a lot easier. I wouldn't consider hand cranking my car - so same for the mower!

Great Machine but.....
Review by Peter / (Posted on 15/05/2016)
Great Machine but.....Review by Peter / (Posted on 15/05/2016)Great machine and cut. Pick up of grass fantastic. Reduced my garden cutting time by 1hr following having a Hayter 48
For £1000 I think it there should be less plastic but I understand the weight issues. Not ideal for a slight person as it is heavy.

Hayter Harrier = Quality
Review by James / (Posted on 24/07/2015)
Hayter Harrier = QualityReview by James / (Posted on 24/07/2015)Love this mower. It cuts grass with ease. Made in the UK, painted in British racing green, solid build quality. What more could you want?
On a serious note, Lifting the grass box through the handle bars is a little awkward. Also the length of the mower is more than I'm used to so needs a large turning circle.
I only went with the electric start as it was on offer. It does add luxury, but I wonder if its just another thing that can go wrong. I use the cord every now and again and it fires up first pull with ease. It's worth the money if you have good grass.

Rolls Royce of Rotary Mowers
Review by Andy Hallett / (Posted on 31/05/2015)
Rolls Royce of Rotary MowersReview by Andy Hallett / (Posted on 31/05/2015)Having had a Hayter Harrier 48 for 13 years I know how good Hayters are. The 56 ES is no different and it feels extremely solid and assured. I do agree with one of the other reviewers comments about the battery cover - it is difficult to remove. I used a screw driver to help carefully prise the flanges from their recesses but it was unnecessarily difficult. No need to move it really after charging the battery for the first time, but from a design point of view Hayter could look at this.
The only other slight negative is when emptying the grass box, it is easier to lift the box up and through between the handles - saves too much bending - and the way the starter chord is arranged it catches on the box. Nothing massive, but again something Hayter could look at in terms of design.
After charging the battery as instructed and filling up with oil and fuel it started on the first half turn of the key and the results are excellent. Really is a first class mower.

Hayter 56Review by Dr Jatin Patel / (Posted on 18/05/2015)Great service from MowDirect.
Very impressed with the lawnmower performance and overall build quality. The only thing which lets it down is the plastic battery-cover which is very difficult to open and close - so much so that I managed to snap of find of the plastic flaps! Seems strange to let the overall build quality down by this poorly thought through mechanism, given that the lawnmower is premier priced at £1000!

Excellent MowerReview by Mike Hodgson / (Posted on 09/05/2015)I bought this to replace my 20 year old Mountfield Emperor when I could no longer get parts. Each new mower I buy has more plastic parts, which worries me slightly, but it's British made and oozes quality.
It has loads of power and the auto-drive is great - slowly round the daffs and full speed ahead on the open lawn. It cuts everything you throw at it and it all ends up in the bag. What more can you want?
