Description

Top-quality German engineering and design-solutions at an affordable price - that’s the appeal of the high-specification Einhell GC-PM 46/2 SHW-E Petrol Rotary Mower.

At its core is a high-torque 139cc Einhell engine with an OHV configuration for fuel-efficient, low-emission performance; and a battery-powered key-starter for fast, no-stress ignition (the battery recharges during operation).

A large 1.3-litre-capacity fuel-tank means lengthy, interruption-free runs; while a handlebar mounted starter-cord grip for the back-up recoil mechanism works to spare your back.

The Einhell GC-PM 46/2 SHW-E boasts power-driven rear-wheels that ensure slopes and rough, tussocky grass can be traversed with the utmost ease (the drive can be disabled where enhanced manoeuvrability is required).

It’s built around a powder-coated sheet-steel chassis for superior strength and durability; and it’s fitted with front-mounted grass-combs that deliver a pleasingly neat and consistent finish.

Flexible in use, the Einhell GC-PM 46/2 SHW-E Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower can either bag or rear-discharge grass-clippings, with the former suitable for shorter grass; and the latter for longer growth.

Extra-large-diameter back-wheels provide traction and make it easier to turn on longer grass; while a single-lever height-of-cut adjustment system lets you select your preferred blade-setting without fuss.

Other key features include a comfortable height-adjustable handlebar which can be collapsed for storage; and a hardwearing 70-litre canvas grass-catcher with a handy fill-level indicator.

This model has a 46cm cutting-width; ideal for lawns up to around 1200m2.

Features

  • Electric key ignition for quick and effortless starts every time
  • Quiet-running and low-emission Einhell OHV engine delivering plenty of power
  • High drive-wheels for added manoeuvrability, particularly on rough ground
  • Self-propelled drive system (with throttle) to save on pushing
  • Easy-to-use single-lever height-of cut-control
  • Robust steel deck with powder-coated paint finish for longevity
  • Grass-comb for more even cut and finer finish to your lawn
  • Air vents on grass collector for increased air flow and improved collection
  • Grassbag fill-level indicator for more efficient mowing and no messy clumps from overfilling
  • Height-adjustable handles with soft comfort-grip
  • Extra-large petrol tank enables you to mow for longer without refilling
  • Ball-bearing mounted wheels for extra-smooth motion
  • Quality German engineering for reliable long-term performance
  • Ideal for lawns & informal areas such as banks, paddocks & orchards

Its a Lawnmower Even the Village Idiot can assemble this in two minutes flat. Add oil (not included!) fill with petrol, turn over once and I'm mowing the grass.

All of the garden gnomes love it, and the fairies that live in the shed at the bottom of the garden say that the electric start is so much easier than the recoil start if they need to run the engine in order to keep warm. Would have been nice to have a selection of different colours to choose from and to have a smiley face like a Henry Hoover.

Oh, if you drive through your pond it does not work, so perhaps an optional snorkel fitting might be a useful feature

Keep smiling in your garden.

Well Engineered and Good Value The mower was delivered within 24 hours of purchase and arrived in good order. It is relatively easy to assemble and seems well built if a little heavy to handle. This might be a problem but for it being self-propelled thus providing help with movement. It would have been nice to be able to engage the drive without the cutting blades turning but, alas, this feature is absent.

As other users have said, the commencement of the mower drive is sudden and it's quite speedy once on the move. The absence of a throttle control doesn't help here. Also missing is a reverse gear so turning the mower is more difficult than I would have preferred.

For the record, it took an e-mail and 2 phone calls to get the retailer to make good on their promise to supply the mower with a bottle of engine oil. However, they eventually came good on this.

Overall, it seems to be a well-engineered product which represents good value.

Great Machine - Very Happy Very happy, the machine cuts very well, the drive is at exactly my walking pace.

I marked down on assembly because I had to flick between pages in the manual to find bits. The packaging was badly bashed, I told MowDirect but when I had assembled the machine, everything was there and completely undamaged.

I gave the machine one pull on the cord to get the oil moved around and then started it with the first twist of the key

Great - easy start, rapid take-off, on the heavy side Not delivered when advised, so when it showed up on the Bank Holiday it took me by surprise. My brother came over and put it together as I have only one working arm, instructions not great, but the only 'issue' was where the cables needed to be positioned to allow folding of the handle.

Having ordered it as the only option that suited my requirements I am very pleased with it. Takes off like a race-horse, and has a bit of a kick, so don't advise trying to push the self-propulsion handle with your stomach/hip. Gave a nice cut in very good time and on pretty long uneven, and some damp, grass. My only difficulty is turning it, but as most people can use both arms, I doubt this will be a big deal for most.

I'd rather be able to afford a ride-on, but the big collection bag is excellent - hard to believe that what used to mean 4-6 lots of emptying in my old electric was done in one! Serious bonus on both work/arm effort, and time. Very pleased with my decision to buy this, my only problem now is my brother trying to pinch it and convince me I need a rechargeable!

Excellent Buy This mower works well. It is extremely easy to put together and there have been no problems starting the mower with the ignition switch. The cut is good and I am pleased with the performance. The only down side is the weight of grass clippings (as I am a retired female) but the answer is to empty the box more frequently.

Overall, a good buy.

Chelsea Garden? After watching the Chelsea Flower Show gardens and realising that dandelions and daisies were not a feature this year, this was delivered within 24 hours!

My 11 year old assembled it, after watching u tube videos, and mowed the dandelions away! My daughter even got involved with mowing! The horse as it's now called, as it suddenly takes off, delighted me with easily coping with damp long grass underneath the wooded area.

I Was All for a Manual But... It's true, I was going to replace the petrol mower with a hand driven manual. But oh nooo, Mrs Speyer wanted a powered machine: Electric hover, no; that just leaves petrol, 'Yes but I want a mower with electric start'!

So after a little more searching and review reading the Einhell popped up supplied by MowDirect. Ordered on a Saturday evening, Delivered on Tuesday mid morning, exactly what the website/company promise. There is a stress on NOT starting the machine without first putting engine oil in! If you miss where that is meant to go, well... Great machine and the electric start is sooo much easier.

Now whether Mrs Speyer ever uses it, I'll wait for some time!

FIRST CLASS PRODUCT, ADVICE & CUSTOMER SERVICE This machine was bought after requesting advice from MowDirect. I needed a machine that was easy to start &, whilst a little heavier than my previous pull-cord mower, the absolute joy of a mower starting first time is heaven.

Everything about this machine is good quality, which for the price of an electric start mower is quite surprising. I would not hesitate recommending this machine or MowDirect to anyone who loves gardening as much as I do.

Excellent Customer Service It's a bit early to review the performance of this machine as I've only used it once.

I would like to recommend MowDirect for their fast delivery of this machine, and their customer service. when I unpacked the machine I noticed that one of the lugs on the grass box that holds it in position was missing when I phoned MowDirect they were very apologetic and sent me a replacement grass box, which arrived two days later.

I must add that the key start on this machine is a winner for me.

A Well Made Mower. Good Value for Money. This is a really well made mower and very good value for money.

The electric start works really well. It cuts really well. The 'bag fill' monitor I find really useful (I didn't think this would work but it does!). The assembly took a little longer than it should as the 2 x 8mm coach bolts that secure both sections of the handle together were missing from the (sealed) bag of misc parts. Soon got some more from another company.

As stated in other reviews of this mower you need to consider the weight (the electric start adds to the weight of a mower). It can be a little awkward to manoeuvre in tight corners.

Overall I am very pleased with this mower.

An Excellent Mower for the Price I needed a reasonable large mower as my old machine was on its last legs. Delivery was swift and assembly reasonably easy. A little problem getting it started to begin with as there seemed to be an air block in the fuel line. However, once started there have been no further problems.

It has now been used several times. It starts instantly now and is noticeable quieter that the old mower (though that might say more about the old machine than the new one). It cuts well and the large grass basket means less stopping for emptying. The full indicator on the basket works well and stops me letting the basket overfill, which happened frequently in the past with the old machine.

The mower is fairly heavy but that is not a problem as I have no need to lift or carry it. The weight seems to be a by-product of being solidly built. The electric start was not a requirement when looking for a new mower but now, having used it, it would be in the future.

So far I am very pleased with my purchase and happily recommend it.

Excellent Mower Highly Recommended Due to health problems with my elbows I needed something that didn't require strength to start it up or trundle around. This mower is just the job. It is easy to adjust the the cutting heights, easy to use and copes well with our large garden with quite rough grass. It's a bit on the heavy side but it's not a problem with its self-drive.

The best thing of all is the key start FANTASTIC and the battery charges while in use. Great customer service and delivery. EXCELLENT MACHINE

This is the Mower I Should have Got! After struggling to mow a large, poorly maintained back lawn with an electric hover mower and yards and yards of cable for years I finally snapped and bought one of these.

Oh joy of joys, what a machine! It starts like a dream (better than the car even) as the electric key start is fantastic and with no extension cables and a blade 2" wider than the hover it gets the job done in about 1/5th of the time.

What was previously a nightmare job is now a pleasure (well almost). Happy mowing!

Easy to assemble from the box and pictorial instructions are adequate and intuitive. The one touch height adjustment is a great feature and so is the electric start.

Good Solid Machine - Excellent Price for Performance Having compared specs for a number of models, this one seemed to have all the things I need, but I did note that it's heavier than competitors. The electric start was 'icing on the cake'.

On unpacking I felt the weight was justified by robust construction. The downside is that the machine can be tricky to manoeuvre in tight spots and 70 litres of damp grass adds a lot of weight.

I don't think the drive engages more abruptly than others I've owned, but the large drive wheels plus weight can lead to skid marks if you're not careful in tight spots. On the plus side, the extra tractive power is great on my large, mostly sloping, lawns and especially along a steepish bank.

The instructions were vague and I wish there had been guidance on how to route cables when assembling the handles - I kinked all mine the first time I folded them for storage but they still work OK. I especially like the height adjuster which looks like it will last forever and the way the grass box really packs the cuttings in and empties easily unlike others I've owned.

So far I'm very happy and would recommend this mower.

Stright out of the Box Purchased this model for the electric start and the fact it is suppose to charge the battery while mowing, time will tell on that one, as I have only used it once so far.

Well built machine, assembly instructions are a bit vague, but its not difficult to work it out. Just bolt on the handles, fill with oil, fill with petrol, charge the battery and away you go. It started up almost straight out of the box. Easy to change cutting height. Good size grass collection box.

It worked no problem, and made a nice job of cutting my lawn. Even though we have fairly large lawn this soon made short work of it.

The only draw back I can comment on is, as its a self propelled mower, when you engage the drive it almost does a wheelie, and it's a bit fierce, its all or nothing. I need to read the set up book and see if I can adjust it. If it was variable speed control it would make this the perfect mower. If you are trying to do a sharp turn while in drive it will spin the wheels and make a bit of a mess on damp grass.

Excellent Product After injuring my arm trying to pull start other mowers, I decided to pay more for the convenience (and to save further injury) of this key start mower.

The amount of assembly required was minimal and the quality of the parts seem to be very good. Once filled with oil (supplied) and petrol, it started first time and made short work of my medium sized lawn. I have used it twice since and again it performed without a hitch, so based on this I would recommend it to potential buyers.
