Combining a beefy petrol motor with a steel chassis and simple hand-propulsion, theMountfield HP41 delivers the kind of cutting-power, durability and ease-of-handling you'd normally expect to find way up in another price bracket!
Supplying the power is a STIGA ST120 Autochoke engine; a 123cc four-stroke air-cooled unit with overhead-valve (OHV) technology for smooth, low-vibration operation with reduced emissions and improved fuel-economy; and a well-engineered recoil mechanism for dependable pull-starts in both the short- and long-terms.
The Mountfield HP41 Hand-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower has a 39cm width-of-cut, which ensures the efficient coverage of small-medium lawns up to around 600m2, while being compact enough to make it easy to manoeuvre around and between obstacles. Manoeuvrability is further enhanced by its lightweight build (19.5kg) and slightly larger rear-wheels.
Thanks to its aerodynamically-optimised deck shape, which means clippings are driven at speed into the roomy 40-litre catcher, the Mountfield HP41 excels when it comes to bagging in typically damp British conditions. The collector is made of loosely-woven fabric that lets air flow through so as to ensure it gets fully packed; and has a hard plastic top that prevents hayfever-inducing dust from rising in drier conditions.
This model offers simple single-lever height-of-cut adjustment through five positions, from a low 25mm for a close cut on formal lawns, up to 70mm for the successful management of longer, rougher grass.
Also featured is a fully foldable handlebar that works to save space in your shed or car-boot.
