Hayter Spirit 41 Petrol Autodrive Rear-Roller Lawnmower (Code: 619)
Product Review (submitted on 2 July 2013):
Having only had the mower a few days and actual use time limited to a couple of hours, this is a first impression review.
Order and delivery process was flawless, so I can't comment on the customer service of MowDirect if problems had been encountered.
The mower itself came well boxed and protected and was straight forward to assemble. As it is about 30kg's you could either do with 4 hands to lift it out of the box or just cut the box away from around it. The tricky part was actually fixing the grass bag to its metal frame. The clips are understandably firm and once attached aren't going to come off in any hurry. They are just a bit tricky to understand given the limited drawings in the manual. Having said that, it's about the worst thing I can say about it so far.
Performance has been very satisfying. The engine started very swiftly once the oil and fuel had been added. The height adjustment lever feels very sturdy and speed over the ground is at a leisurely strolling pace.
The rear roller does its job at striping the lawn well - I chose a medium length cut for my first run over the ground as it was due to be hot the week after cutting. The results were pleasing. The grass bag works well and is easy to handle.
Would I buy the same mower again from the same place? Yes.
