- Just What We Need
Just What We Need We have a large lawn and unfortunately I can not afford a Ride-on Mower at present, The Oleo Mac is a bit of a compromise but will see how it goes. Delivery was fine, it is quite heavy!
Putting it together was no problem and after filling with oil it started with no problems. The Build quality is good but as with most things now there is a lot of plastic! The only thing I would add is that if you are looking for an ornamental finish to your lawn this is not the mower for you, This mower will cope with all terrain, however it will not give you a really close cut,
Apart from this, seems great!!
- Excellent Mower
Excellent Mower Well built mower that performs as many much more expensive mowers. The build quality is excellent (same company as the more expensive Efco brand). Makes easy mowing of my rough, hilly highland garden.
Excellent price and delivery by MowDirect, as always.
- Good Value, Great Machine
Good Value, Great Machine Bought at the end of last season (taking advantage of a good offer on price), I have only recently put the mower to the test but it did not disappoint.
Coped well with longish grass, I used the highest setting, to be safe, and produced a very good quality cut, better than I have experienced from electric mowers on smaller lawns. Easy to use and not too tiring to operate even for an hour or so.
My only issue was deciphering some of the pictures in the multi lingual book of assembly instructions, but managed to work it out.
Ordering was easy and delivery extremely prompt, nice touch to include a can of engine oil, thanks Cass. Had not heard of MowDirect before but would recommend them.
- Sleek Operator
Sleek Operator This machine is most impressive, it's a well designed and engineered product, very much on top of the job. I am most pleased with my purchase.
- Takes the Hard Work out of Mowing
Takes the Hard Work out of Mowing The powerful engine copes well mowing long wet grass verges or relatively long stretches of uneven rough grass, requiring no push effort. The engine revs don't slow much under heavy load.
It's made mowing easy instead of a dreaded fortnightly chore bordering on marathon levels of exertion. It's certainly a step up from my older, Honda powered, Mountfield push mower. Starts first time with the throttle lever pushed fully forward, Money well spent.
- Highly Satisfied with this Versatile Mower
Highly Satisfied with this Versatile Mower This is my first 'motor mower' and I needed it for two reasons. A large third acre lawn and just as important a full acre horse paddock. I spoke at length with the support team at MowDirect, probably asking all the wrong questions. However they were very tolerant of me and advised me that within my budget that the Oleo-Mac G53-TK AllRoad Plus-4 would be ideal for my needs. They were correct.
The mower was easy to assemble, is easy to start, easy to handle, (it has large rear wheels, so is easy to turn) and has made short work of our large lawn. Varying cut heights is useful as is the large grass box. Also one can 'mulch' the grass and leave it as a dressing.
Yesterday I took the mower over to the paddock and it coped splendidly with all the longish grass that had not been cut in the last six months.
For the price it is an ideal self propelled motor mower.
- Most Excellent Machine
Most Excellent Machine Sales staff were knowledgeable and helped me choose the mower suitable for my circumstances. Assembled OK, and started on first pull.
This is the first self-propelled mower I have used, and as I am getting older, it does not wear me out pushing as I used to do.
Would recommend machine and MowDirect to anyone.
- Works Good Initially - Let's See
Works Good Initially - Let's See Easy to assemble. Starting instruction contain an error, it looks like there may have been an update to the model (the start/stop lever and clutch lever are reversed).
Once that was figured out starting was easy & mower ran well. Just need to see how it performs in the long run.
- Best Mower I Have Ever Had - Lots of Power and Easy to Use
Best Mower I Have Ever Had - Lots of Power and Easy to Use This really is a fantastic mower
Starts first time, every time and is a dream to use. My old lawnmower would always struggle and the engine would stall when tackling the tough areas or my garden but this one cuts my very long grass with ease, due to power of the engine. The mulching is good, the side chute really useful and the 70 litre bag means it seem to go on and on before it needs to be emptied.
The overall build quality seems really good as well and can see this machine going on for years. It was really easy to put together and was up and running in 10 minutes. I don’t find it slow like some of the other reviewers, but then again maybe I am just happy to use a mower like this for longer
Also worth adding, customer service from MowDirect was fantastic and they have been really helpful – and the mower turned up the very next day after I ordered it!
- Great Value, Hard Working Mower
Great Value, Hard Working Mower Great mower which does just what we bought it for. It has tackled long grass well and the 196cc engine goes on and on and on.
It's a little slow but we are happy to sacrifice speed for cutting power. Had no problems starting it and the side chute has proved to be fantastic for the areas we've been cutting. Looked at many mowers before buying and, pound for pound, this is the best value in its class.
