With this impressive machine from Mountfield you get the long-established British brand’s usual blend of superior build-quality, high-spec features and flexibility of use.
The Mountfield SP485HW-V comes driven by a Honda GCV160 engine; a 160cc premium-range power-unit with Autochoke for consistently reliable starting; and OHC technology for higher engine-speeds, less noise and reduced fuel-consumption.
Honda’s Dura-Lube system enhances longevity by protecting key parts from premature wear; while their provision of automatic decompression means low-effort pull-starts.
With a steel-cutter-deck at its heart, the Mountfield SP485HW-V will easily handle the inevitable bumps and knocks it will encounter during its operation life.
It boasts a roomy 70-litre grass-catcher with a hard top that keeps dust and pollen particles contained during very dry weather; and it features a ‘bag full’ indicator that makes it easy to keep track of the fill-level, which in turn prevents over-packing and the subsequent blockages.
This model benefits from an ultra-responsive variable-speed transmission with a cone-clutch design for durability and a marked increase in torque. The ability to adjust the ground-speed makes it possible to adapt to both the grass-length and the type of terrain you’re dealing with.
Button-controlled height-of-cut adjustment ensures selecting any of the six blade-positions is super-simple; while extra-large-diameter drive-wheels provide increased traction and make it much easier to manoeuvre in long grass.
If you’d prefer not to collect clippings, you can choose to either rear-discharge or mulch them (mulch-plug included).

Great Looking Mower, Sturdy Build.
Review by Steve Anderson / (Posted on 16/03/2017)
Great Looking Mower, Sturdy Build.Review by Steve Anderson / (Posted on 16/03/2017)I bought this mower as I was after something reliable and sturdy. Only used once so far but the build quality appears great, no issues starting - relatively quiet to use, looks to tick all the boxes so far.
Only let down was the delivery, given mower is over 35kgs disappointing one man in his van delivered it and no sack trolley in his van on day of delivery!

My First Lawnmower..
Review by Hill / (Posted on 29/08/2016)
My First Lawnmower..Review by Hill / (Posted on 29/08/2016)It's my first lawnmower so I don't have a lot to compare with, but I do have a large and difficult lawn and this really does do a very good job of it. Like others, the instructions were for a different type of handle so the assembly wasn't without some head scratching, but I eventually figured it out.
Seems to be well made but I guess time will tell. I love the really simple cut height adjuster (one button operation) and the big wheels for my rough terrain. I feel confident that the Honda motor will be as reliable as its reputation suggests.
All in all, happy with lawnmower and very happy with MowDirect. Highly recommend both.

A SUPER MOWER
Review by ED DULAC / (Posted on 26/03/2016)
A SUPER MOWERReview by ED DULAC / (Posted on 26/03/2016)This is the third Mountfield I have bought from MowDirect over the last 20 years, my first two worked very well for 9 and 11 years respectfully. My current model was up and running in 30 minutes. The Honda engine started first pull.
I have approx an acre of grass from semi-rough to reasonable sward, this mower mulch-cut it effortlessly in 2 hrs. Highly reccomended machine, especially with the very reliable Honda engine.
