- Got There in the End
Got There in the End Firstly, I had one mower in mind but the advice from MowDirect was excellent and got me a machine that I am ultimately happy with. It got damaged in transit (or possibly left the factory with damage) but MowDirect sent spare parts out and arranged for someone to come and fit them. I still had to do some assembly, which wasn't easy and required disconnecting some items to fit, so the "fully assembled" badge wears a little thin with me.
I had to chase MowDirect for the free trailer and, when it came, it was a nightmare to build. Parts that didn't fit and the worst set of instructions I've ever seen. I'm also disappointed that a deflector (required when you don't want to collect the cuttings) costs £100, as does a mulcher.
Anyway, I'm up and working finally and the plus side is that the mower is very good and I got used to it quickly. The 5-year warranty is welcome, given the cost.
In summary, more problems getting to a happy position than you would expect for the price but I'm hoping all will be well from now on.
- Excellent at an Affordable Price!
Excellent at an Affordable Price! Once I managed to work out a way of getting it off the pallet, I got it going after a couple of hours. It stopped working after two minutes though and I eventually realised it had little petrol in it when delivered. So have a large Jerry can filled with unleaded at the ready!
The 102 cm cutting width quickly fills up the grass cutter and this is a little awkward to empty but I've worked out an efficient method now so it's not a problem. Otherwise everything else about the machine is truly a delight at the price. The five year guarantee was influential in my buying decision but hopefully this won't be used!
Compared to other makes this won hands down and I haven't been disappointed. I can honestly state that I'm delighted with this Al-Ko T-16-102HD LAWN TRACTOR!
Struggles Good machine on dry grass but gets blocked in longer wet grass and fills box quickly
- Good Product for the Price. Does the Job so Far.
Good Product for the Price. Does the Job so Far. I bought this as I needed a quick replacement for an old John Deere that expired. There are a few extras on this which are good, the assisted grass-box opening and collector-full alarm are useful. It feels powerful, cutting thick grass without any issues. The controls are simple and quick to get used to.
The reverse pedal isn't as ergonomic as it could be and reverse is slow. The turning circle is good so not too much reversing is required apart from some awkward areas.
First impressions are good except for a minor fault with the throttle cable clamp coming loose. Time will tell if the deck is made of sufficient quality to last the 5-year guarantee.
- Excellent Product, Delivery Needs to be Reviewed.
Excellent Product, Delivery Needs to be Reviewed. The lawn mower is excellent and copes with my formal lawns over 1 and a half acres with speed and cuts beautifully. The actual plastic body feels flimsy but actually once you get used to it very easy to use. The grass catcher was a little difficult to initially line up, and heavy to push back once emptied, but not impossible.
The mower is great.
- Excellent Machine
Excellent Machine Having just bought a house with a fairly large plot of land I needed to get a ride on lawn mower. I didnt know anything about them so popped along to MowDirect for some advice. I had a budget of around £5k.
I got a good explanation from Jason, who works there of the differences between all the machines. I ended up buying the T16 and a few accessories. I saved over £2k as Jason explained I didn't need to spend so much on a ride on. I was very impressed that he did this as most companies try and get as much money out of you as possible. This enabled me to buy several other garden tools.
The mower itself is great, easy to use and powerful enough for my needs, towing a heavy trailer is no problem for it.
