Well-built Mower that Gives a Good, Wide Cut

Well-built Mower that Gives a Good, Wide Cut
Review by OneTimeRedhead / (Posted on 26/04/2017)
After a couple of uses only, this seems a very good machine. It replaces my 20-year old MF 10-10, so, it has taken a little getting useD to, particularly the additional safety features. So, I've stalled several times when going into reverse with the cutters still engaged and without pressing the override button.

But, the cut is good, its width being important as well as the fact that it extends to, or just beyond, the wheel track, allowing successful mowing close to borders, walls etc.

I chose side-discharge because my grass is often damp or slightly long and, with my old MF 10-10, I got sick and tired of continually having to unclog the chutes. The penalty is having to gather together the clippings - often done by higher-speed passes post-cutting - before getting them into a barrow. The mulching function I've yet to try.

Incidentally, the mulching plate was a beggar to remove the first time. A description in the manual about a quarter-turn of each of the two screws would have helped but, even then, the lugs wouldn't clear the retaining clips, which had to be unbolted to free the plate.

Another niggle is the pictograms that show whether the cutting blades are engaged or disengaged - they are almost identical and the differences don't make much sense! A clearer indication of whether the knob should be up or down for disengagement etc. would be helpful. Notwithstanding, I have high hopes this mower will last at least the 20 years that my MF 10-10 lasted. It certainly feels well-built.

You can start using this as soon as it is delivered although I always read the manual first. The delivery driver helped me lift the mower off the pallet, as the suggested method of breaking the pallet into a ramp would have been difficult - the blocks didn't move at all with a few hammer blows.

The mower performs well, there were only a few bits where the mulch left any visible grass cuttings. It also moves quite quickly and took very little time to mow a large lawn. The turning circle is pretty tight but could be a little better. When turning back on yourself at the end of the lawn, it does leave quite a large area you have to go back and cut. It couldn't manage to get very far up the slopes in my garden but they are quite steep.

The levers are very stiff, my wife really struggled to change the cutting height. Not sure if they will ease up in time. It does have a great feature for attaching a hose to wash the blades. And also a cup holder.

It looks OK, but unfortunately like many ride-on mowers it comes in that horrible machinery red. I wish they did a black version.

Overall I think it's pretty good and I don't think there is much better available in this price range.

The mower arrived when expected. Excellent communication from MowDirect. Packaged very well.

Lots of instructions! Followed those instructions, re charging of battery etc. Started first time. Nothing else to say really.

5 Years on......

5 Years on......
Review by Michael Dutch / (Posted on 03/11/2016)
Bought this mower from MowDirect 5 years ago to replace a very ancient Countax which finally gave up. The Mountfield has been used to keep an acre and a half of unruly French field grass nicely in check over the past five years with excellent reliability.

Had one new transmission belt and two new cutting deck belts and plenty of oil changes in 5 years hard work but still cutting perfectly. Only problem has been the flimsy hand brake mechanism, but not even bothered fixing that for four years.

Excellent little workhorse!!!

New mower arrived Thursday. All good, works a treat, and much better than my old one. It cut the lawn very well despite long grass.

MowDirect did a top job.

The gears are very lumpy and not smooth to change, but on the whole it's a good mower.

After a lot of research I decided on this Mountfield and I am extremely happy with my final decision.

The service I have had from MowDirect has been first class from the moment of placing my order to the actual delivery. They kept me informed at every stage and I can only say I wish more firms were as efficient.

If I ever need any other gardening machinery I will certainly use Mow Direct again,
