Enjoy superior build-quality and get a host of practical and convenient features at a rock-bottom price with the British-designed Mountfield HP42 Petrol Lawnmower!
Supplying the blade with a substantial 2.5hp is a Mountfield ST120 engine; a super-efficient 123cc four-stroke air-cooled motor, which, thanks to its overhead-valve design, will prove cheap to run, clean-burning and smooth and quiet in operation.
In addition to the traditional cut & collect option, the Mountfield HP42 also offers a mulching-mode - instead of being bagged, clippings are held under the deck and shredded, with the resulting mulch being forced back into the turf by a powerful air-flow, where it will quickly rot and disappear.
The Mountfield HP42’s straightforward hand-push design and narrow 41cm cut combine to make it highly manoeuvrable and therefore ideal for less substantial areas where there are obstacles and landscaping around which to work.
It’s supplied with a roomiest-in-class 60-litre grassbag that’s made from breathable canvas to as to maximise catcher-capacity; and it features ‘collector full’ indication, so it’s unlikely you’ll overfill and block the discharge-chute.
In order to help you achieve your desired finish, Mountfield have furnished this model with six preset heights-of-cut (22-65mm) which, unusually for a mower in this price-bracket, are selected using just a single lever.
Also important is the steel chassis that provides rugged durability and a solid cutting-platform.

Average Quality Mower at Low PriceReview by Kevin O'Regan / (Posted on 04/04/2019)First off, the assembly is overly complicated and the instructions appear to be for a different model. You can work it all out in the end though.
Started the first time, and comes with oil for the engine which was useful. Height adjustable and grass collection bag is a reasonable size. I have moved to a smaller lawn, so didn't want to spend more than the £160 this cost.
Cutting is OK - it is not a completely even cut, missing some grass through the middle line of the mover if there is any dampness in the grass.
Good as a budget mower, but if you're wavering between this and something a little more, and have a reasonable size garden, it's worth upgrading.
