Description

Enjoy effortless mowing on larger lawns with this new and exclusive rotary mower from MowDirect. It's equipped with an electric key ignition for quick and easy starting every time, without the need to pull a cord - simply turn the switch and start mowing (the starter-battery recharges during as you work).

The Einhell GC-PM 51/2 SHW-E has an extra-large 51cm cutting-width for faster mowing-times; and comes with a roomy 70-litre grass-catcher which features a bag-full indicator that ensures you only have to stop when the catcher is full. A unique grass comb at the front of the machine helps to produce a consistent cut and will leave your lawn with a super-smart finish.

This German-designed mower offers four cutting options, giving you compete versatility - you can switch quickly and easily without tools to collection-free mulching, or to side- or rear-discharge when tackling areas of rough and longer grass.

High drive-wheels provide added stability on rougher ground and enhance the the mower's manoeuvrability; while straightforward single-lever height-of-cut adjustment makes it quick and easy to select from any of the six stages provided.

The Einhell GC-PM 51/2 SHW-E Petrol Lawn Mower has a robust steel deck with a powder-coated paint finish for added robustness and longevity; and is equipped with a powerful yet clean- and quiet-running 173cc OHV engine that's extremely reliable and impressively fuel-efficient.

The handles on this model can be adjusted to two different positions to suit the height of the operator and come with a soft grip for enhanced comfort and control. They also fold down for more compact storage in your shed or garage.

Also featured is an effort-saving self-drive system, which can be disengaged for safe obstacle-negotiation.

  • Electric key ignition for quick & effortless starts every time

Great Mower Great lawnmower at a great price, powered through this spring’s long wet grass which is what I hoped for. Would highly recommend. Yes its a bit heavy but that's why it does its job so well, plenty of power and great build quality.

Purchased Mower was Faulty but Replaced Without Question The replacement mower, sent when the original machines electric start proved faulty, is as good as other reviews have said. Strong build, good mowing speed, wonderful electric start.

After I explained the original fault, MowDirect agreed to replace it immediately. Annoying to have to disassemble it, drain fuel and oil, and repack it for collection (which they arranged), but unquestionably good service from MowDirect. I found it more efficient to phone them than email. Most phone calls were very well handled, courteous and productive.

I have seen some bad reviews of MowDirect, but in my experience they are unjustified - thanks to the MowDirect team.

Excellent Have already provided a review of this mower, giving it a 100% for ease of assembly, quality, noise reduction and mowing quality.

Since the review I have had the opportunity to use the mulching kit which was easy to install and remove and provided and produced an excellent finish without the debris left by my previous mower. A first class machine.

Earlier Version I actually bought the similar Einhell GC-PM 53 SHW-E machine in March 2015. It has proved to be a reliable starter and a good cutting machine. I have about 400 sqm of lawn at the back of my house, some of it in rough ground with a further 100 sqm at the front.

It arrived in good time, but some packing damage had allowed the transmission control cable to get skinned. I asked for a cable; they sent a new mower and collected the first one free.
I was told that it did not charge the battery itself, hence the charger was supplied, but of course it does charge itself and even after two winter layups I have not had to use the charger.

The only down side I have found was rust forming under the chassis, mainly due to the rough ground where stones were thrown up ( now block paved thankfully) but a coat of Hammerite last October sorted that out.

Just remember to drain the fuel at the year end and clean the underside to check for rust. Stale petrol is not good for starting with! I am not sure about 30 grade oil (as supplied) in a OHV engine, so I used 15W40, and have had no problems. 30 grade is fine for side-valve engines though.

I never managed to get a mulching blade, although the manual says one is available. Highly recommended, a good solid machine, and the supplier, MowDirect, is very good as well.

Excellent Mower for Price Having moved from a small garden to 1/2 acre paddock I had to buy something to help keep the grass down. Initially wanting a ride-on lawn mower I couldn't justify the huge outlay so looked at the self driven petrol mowers on offer. This one fitted the bill perfectly with the multitude of cutting styles, heights and an electric start all at a very reasonable price.

MowDirect themselves were excellent and I received the mower within a few days.

Great Bit of Kit... Helpful information from MowDirect once I'd placed my order. The mower was dispatched, and delivered promptly within two days. This is my first petrol mower. Assembly was straight forward. Oil was included in the purchase.

The key start is great! I've found the mower manoeuvrable and the height adjust lever easy to alter. The only negative was the actual delivery by one man (not the two-man team as indicated by the delivery company) who rolled the box down the steps to my house. Happily, no damage was done and I am very pleased with the mower.

It is a great bit of kit.

Excellent Mower Ideal for larger gardens. Powerful and cuts brilliantly. Heavy and well built. Quality and design is top rate. Best mower to date by far. Economical on fuel and the grass collection system is very, very good.

Enjoyed cutting grass and did it quicker. Large wheels help to pull mower at a really fast pace. This mower is well suited for me but may be too powerful to handle on small lawns or if you can't walk at a reasonable pace.

Excellent product compared to similar models. To replace old model with same would have cost me over £160 more than I paid for this machine, and I strongly believe this one is a lot better. So I am very happy to save a lot of money and get a better mower as well!

Highly Recommend for medium to large lawns. Brilliant.

Quality, High Performing Product We have a small plot in mid Wales and the garden is a mixture of hills and bog with very little flat lawn so we needed a mower that was rugged and easy to use and preferably with larger wheels than this style of mower usually has. This model seemed to fit the bill and so far we have not been disappointed.

Key features worth mentioning are the fantastic electric start, the simple to use cut-height adjust lever and of course the large back wheels. Together with great looks and quality build, we are very happy with our purchase.

Review by Andrew Hayfield / (Posted on 10/09/2015)
Overall Good Lawn Mower... We actually purchased the Einhell GC-PM 53 version but there was no more stock and so were offered the equivalent 51 cm version. All in all we are pleased with the lawn mower, it is much better than the electric hover mower we are replacing this with.

My wife even says it is easy to start it and it performs well on our very uneven grass, just need to raise the cutting height one step to prevent it bottoming out on the grass.

One thing, I wish it had variable speed though, which is why I have rated 4 for features and 4 for ease of use. There are not that many choices for electric starting petrol mowers on the marketing so this one delivers plenty for it's price.

However, if I were to purchase again I would have gone for the Hayter R53S Power-Driven Recycling Lawn Mower VS ES (Sens-A-Speed Transmission) which although more expensive I feel would have been a better choice for us.

Great Mower and Value for Money Read lots of reviews before ordering this mower and can honestly say I am really pleased with my purchase.

The mower arrived within a couple of days and was well packed with all accessories. A little bit heavy getting out of box but was up and running within half an hour. Instructions not great, but only a few items to assemble and really easy to put together.

Only used mower once so far but it is powerful and did an excellent job on quite long grass. Would recommend this mower to anyone looking for a good sturdy machine that gives a great finish to your lawn.

Value and effective I have only had the chance to use the mower once since it arrived. Assembly was easy. Good job I checked the instructions several times regarding the oil, as you do not screw the dipstick in to check the levels. This was different to my old Mountfield.

Outstanding Bought this mower because we needed an electric starter (ageing rapidly LOL). We were not disappointed as it is a first time starter out of the box.

As others have said it is a heavy machine but it is absolutely fantastic in terms of both build quality and performance. The speed of service from MowDirect is also well worthy of note - a great deal which I would thoroughly support.

Wife and I are both happy Good service, easy to assemble. No oil in engine so check before starting . It started OK from cold, but after emptying grass box re-start not so good; engine spins over fine but no start? Choke on/ choke off. Still no start. Tried again after 5 minutes and we were back in business. I may have flooded it. It is heaver than my old mower but that one didn't have a battery on it. Once I have got the hang of starting it. I am sure I will give 5 stars for ease of use.

Four star two aspects in rating table are anticipated to be minimum response. Purchased for five star features +, build quality and assembly having searched extensively for a mower replacement. However, this purchase is made January 2014 and aspect of ease of use and performance cannot be assessed at this time. The weather in Scotland's winter-time precludes pertinent observation on the aspects incomplete. Not only am I impressed with the mower in appearance and the reviews previously read but my local neighbours are also impressed! I certainly anticipate use and performance will be five star rating given the presentation and quality witnessed to date and the helpful delivery experienced.

Good Mower from excellent company Bought this lawnmower because I needed electric start (getting a bit long in the tooth for the pull cord ones) I find it much easier to start but mower is bigger and heavier than I thought but I am sure I will get used to it. Does what it says on the box.. great cut. excellent with the throttle so you can go as slow or as fast as you like, Good price..lower than mowers of the same type!

Looking good Only used once on very long grass, but this mower delivered. Choke was counter-intuitive, but once I'd worked that out, it went like a dream. I'm not strong enough to do recoil start machines any more, so this solution was perfect for me. Worth every penny (which wasn't as much as a lot of the others!)
MowDirect excellent too, both on advice before purchase, and when they delivered (local customer).

Good mower for large garden. Received the mower on the day promised. Packaging was slightly damaged but not to the detriment of the mower.
Did have an initial problem with starting but receiving advice from Mow direct this is now not a problem. As the previous review the mower is heavier than my last one, but this is more than made up by the build quality. I would not recommend for a small garden or one that requires a lot of manoeuvring.
Having used the mower several times I am happy with the cut and the overall appearance of the lawn when finished.

Great all round mower. The specification of this mower was all I required (especially the electric start) but was only available from one company on line, however since I received it I have used it twice and I am very impressed. I would point out that it is a fairly heavy mower to use, especially if you are mature like me but this makes it suitable for medium to large lawns. Electric start is great and although a separate charger is supplied the mower does have a built in charger.
