With its huge 53cm cutting-width and power-drive, the Mountfield SP535-HW-V Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower is great for large-scale scale domestic use. Its variable-speed transmission allows you to work at the most appropriate pace both for yourself and the grass-conditions, while also providing greater control when mowing around trees and shrubs.
The Mountfield SP535-HW-V has a very wide-ranging six-position height-of-cut (26 – 87mm), so it’s ideal for both formal and informal lawns (adjustments are quick and easy to make using a single lever). Further versatility is conferred by Mountfield's provision of four mowing-modes: collection; mulching; side-discharge; rear-discharge.
Thanks to its ultra-tough pressed-steel chassis, the Mountfield SP535-HW-V is well equipped to handle any knocks or bumps. Its extra-large 280mm rear-wheels provide the traction needed for a neat, consistent finish; and its large-capacity 70-litre grass-collector means you can spend more time working between emptying-breaks.
Mountfield have also incorporated a fail-safe Operator Presence Control, which maximises operator-safety by ensuring the engine is cut when the main handle is released.
This model boasts a Honda GCV190 engine; a 190cc premium-range power-pack that utilises over-head-cam technology for a cut in running-costs with reduced vibration and fewer nasty exhaust-emissions.

Accessories Are the Only Letdown
Review by Trevor Murray / (Posted on 10/05/2017)
Accessories Are the Only LetdownReview by Trevor Murray / (Posted on 10/05/2017)The mower was easy to assemble, and the only issue is poorly fitting clamp spacer/washers that are a different diameter to the handle so they don't fit in the recess made for them. The Honda motor started straight out of the box, after addition of oil and fuel of course. Starting was so easy it actually flashed up while I was pulling the cord slowly to prime the carb.
The performance of the machine is good and collects the cuttings well, although I am not sure that the box full indicator is actually working as it flaps about all the time. The drive struggles with steep slopes but nothing I can't cope with. I too thought it was a British make, but what is these days.
The handbook is for several different machines so you need to sort out which is yours.

Glad I Got It !

Glad I Got It !Review by Spelbound / (Posted on 27/04/2017)After my inherited, but beloved, Toro gave up the ghost, I was not sure that I could easily find a replacement; but this mower is more than I expected ! Local advice was to get something with a Honda engine if I wanted a sure starter - so I did. There is no priming button and no choke control - Nothing except the in-line fuel supply valve - on or off.
I was sceptical about how easy this would be, but should not have been. The engine starts first pull, every time. In fact, it is difficult to pull the starter cord slow enough for it NOT to start. So - easy to start, and easy to drive. The variable speed is great, giving the choice of quick quick march down to leisurely amble in the sunshine.
Do be careful when setting the cut height - the blurb says the shortest is 20mm, but it is nearer to a scalp! Collection is very very efficient, and so the bag gets full much quicker than on my previous machine, and gets very densely packed. All bonuses once you get used to it. The Mulch, or recycling plug is easy to put into position, and works effectively.
1.It is a relatively heavy machine, and the directive to cut across sloping lawns, rather than up and down the slope needs to be heeded, unless you enjoy running downhill behind the mower!
2.Not sure how well a small, slight person would manage the machine, as the handles are quite high.
3. The 5 yr warranty is only valid if the machine is annually serviced by a Mountfield accredited agent. Is there one near to you? Will you pay for an annual service ??
Overall, I am very very satisfied with the machine and its performance, and look forward to many years of trouble free mowing.

Excellent MachineReview by Paul Astbury / (Posted on 13/04/2017)Many improvements on the earlier HW machine
1) The Honda engine
2) The throttle lever and gear lever doesn't get caught up and broken by overhanging bushes. The new one slopes backwards which avoids that problem
3) The height adjustment lever is much better
A pleasure to use.

A Fast Mower
Review by Derek Brown / (Posted on 13/04/2017)
A Fast MowerReview by Derek Brown / (Posted on 13/04/2017)This mower is delivered directly from Mountfield and the first one arrived damaged. Thanks to MowDirect's excellent customer service an undamaged replacement was delivered a week later. I thought I was buying a British made mower, and was disappointed to find it was made in Italy.
Assembly instructions should be much better. I'm a little concerned about the durability of the handle clamps which seem somewhat flimsy. Unlike my previous Honda Izy where the speed was controlled by the throttle, this Honda engine runs at a constant speed and a speed selector is used to control its speed. At the fastest setting I'm almost running! The slowest setting may be too fast for some.
Due to weather conditions it has been used just once so far and I was quite happy with its overall performance. I need more time to assess the effectiveness of the washing system - initial impression is that it doesn't work that well and I had to tip the mower and manually clean the underside.
