It might come in at an impressively low-price point, but this classic petrol rotary-mower from British garden-machinery experts Mountfield nevertheless offers rugged build-quality, numerous convenience-features and excellent versatility. Delivering hefty power with a compact 125cc Briggs and Stratton 300 Series , four-stroke air-cooled motor from renowned makers Briggs and Stratton. Thanks to its overhead-valve (OHV) design, is characterised by its low-vibration, low-emission performance and superior fuel-economy. A hand-propelled machine, the Mountfield HP394 P-B excels in terms of manoeuvrability, and will therefore prove a great purchase if you’ve got trees, ornaments, furniture and landscaping to negotiate. Centralised cutting-height adjustment through the six positions offered makes the pre-mowing set-up a breeze; while Mountfield’s provision of a ‘collector full’ indicator ensures you’ll know in good time when an emptying-stop is required, thereby reducing the likelihood you overfill and block the exit-chute (the space-saving canvas collector holds a substantial 60-litres and benefits from a dust-limiting hard top). This robust, steel-decked model has a mid-range 39cm cut and is ideal for areas up to 800m2. NOTE: This machine requires engine oil and is not supplied.
