- Good Good so Far
Good Good so Far Only used the ride-on for a short while so far but very pleased. Grass was a bit damp but pick up was good, grass was not too deep however.
You can complete quite tight turns and reversing was also easy as was emptying the collector. I was able to cover large areas of grass quickly whilst sat on the mower saving my legs and ankles wear and tear. I found that going back across your mowed field in a different direction helps with grass cutting, cut more grass and improved the look.
Will come back with more experience later in the year. Going to let my wife have a go on the machine too, whilst i tidy up around the field edges with my small push mower.
- A True Review
A True Review I have owned this tractor mower now for a few months. Delivery was quite interesting as the delivery driver was unable to disengage the drive, and I had no idea as I had not read the book, we needed to push the mower some distance to get it from the lorry to my premises as his pallet lifter was not man enough to lift the mower. We got there in the end but it was hard work.
The mower itself was excellent but on about the third use the starter motor jammed open. This was really scary. The ignition wouldn't turn it off. It was screaming noise and getting red hot. The mower was in my garage and the whole thing was a nightmare. I tried to undo the battery terminal but the nut was tiny so in the end I had to undo the starter motor wire which has high power going through it. Traumatic. But I have to say the after sales service from MowDirect was amazing. They organised for it to be picked up, repaired and dropped off again under warranty by a local firm and assured me this is a very rare occurrence.
I used the mower with no problems several more times and then the cutting height adjuster jammed. On to MowDirect again who re arranged another pickup. However they did suggest that it might be a small nut inside the foot plate that needed adjusting. I took the foot plate off which is held in by one screw and was able to test the two pivot nuts. Indeed one was jammed tight, a quick turn of a spanner and the height adjuster worked again. A bit disappointing that both these things should happen to a top of the range mower but all praise to MowDirect for helping to sort it out for me.
Another slight criticism is that it uses a lot of fuel. but the time it saves outweighs that minor problem. Finally, if your grass area is bumpy then the suspension is pretty non existent so go slowly or you will be thrown all over the place and also it cannot cope with being side on on a slope.
Whilst all these comments sound bad it is a good piece of machinery that saves me hours and I wouldn't be without it. Just being honest!
- Good Machine
Good Machine Seems a good all round mower. Easy to use and strong.
- Good Piece of Kit
Good Piece of Kit Took a while to unload from van but that was the courier's fault, failed to bring a fork lift man enough to lift the loaded pallet.
It works well once you realise that if you do anything in the wrong order it won't start. E.g. Don't Lift your bum of the seat, have it in cut mode, go backwards, don't shut the collector box incorrectly, but to be fair these are all good safety measures.
Cut is neat and quick, with plenty of cut heights. Still waiting for the delivery of the deflector box I ordered at the same time so I can't comment on that yet
- A Great Lawn Tractor at a Very Reasonable Price
A Great Lawn Tractor at a Very Reasonable Price A great lawn tractor at a very reasonable price. Good delivery service, easy to get started and does a great job! I have approx one acre of lawn, including a couple of trees to get around, and the performance so far is even better than expected.
- Value for Money
Value for Money I'm very satisfied with both the service from MowDirect and the quality of the machine. It arrived in perfect condition and quickly.
I must admit that I find the lack of ability to mow without the grass box a limitation on the land that I have, and the grass deflector seems very expensive. Perhaps I'll afford one someday!
The most pleasing aspect of the purchase was the friendly and helpful contact with the staff of MowDirect.
- Good Mower, Great Service
Good Mower, Great Service This is a great mower and a good price for what you get. It has a good turning circle, allowing us to cut more than our old platform mower could, before finishing awkward bits with a rotary.
The key-start, auto-shift and emptying mechanism mean that my wife and teenage girls can also cut the lawn, which suits me!
- Ideal and Amazing Service
Ideal and Amazing Service As a garden tractor newby, it was great to get the service from MowDirect. Advice on what to get, quick delivery and then a quick run through the features when it was delivered.
The tractor is really easy to use, it cuts cleanly, empties quickly, is easy to drive / dodge obstacles. I'm really pleased I went with the H model - forwards and backwards a total no brainier and means I can concentrate on dodging obstacles rather than finding the right gear.
So perfect service, great mower, good price (as far as I can tell). Go for it!
- Great Mower
Great Mower Our mower was delivered with a little damage but MowDirect were happy to reduce the price. When we got to use it, we noticed even more scratches all over it, but as we needed to use it we have accepted the marks.
It is great to use, the Parking Brake was very stiff but once we got used to it there wasn't a problem. It goes like a dream and cuts the grass really well, we would definitely recommend it, and the service was excellent.
- Excellent Machine and Easy to Use
Excellent Machine and Easy to Use The tractor arrived almost completely assembled and was up and working in less than an hour. Results were very good even with damp grass.
MowDirect were helpful to deal with and the delivery driver was willing to drop off the tractor in the garage ready to unpack. Good service all round.
