Description

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.

Features

  • A quality machine from a British brand at an undeniably attractive price-point
  • Mulching-mode for a neat finish and naturally nourished turf
  • Clean-running and fuel-efficient OHV engine from Mountfield themselves
  • Easy-pull recoil starter
  • Simple single-lever height-of-cut adjustment
  • Space-saving collapsible handlebars
  • Roomy catcher works to reduce downtime caused by emptying-stops
  • 'Collector full’ indicator prevents overfilling and blockages
  • Steel deck for durability and impact-resistance

Great mower I bought this after doing a lot of research. This was the most reasonably priced with a great brand name. It had everything I wanted and although I didn't go for the self propelled it is light enough not to worry.
Out of the box it comes in a number of different parts that you need to add to the mower. The instructions are Naff with a capital N...... As many people have said they are very generic and cover a range of models, but if you have a little spacial awareness you will be fine just following the diagrams.
That aside the mower is superb, the height adjuster is so easy to use being spring loaded, it changes height so easily. The grass collector is huge and for the first time ever I have been able to cut my front and back lawns on one collection as the blade seems to cut the grass finer when it goes into the collector. I also use the mulcher as we have land over the road and this was superb although a little big for storage purposes it does the job well.
A very light and manoeuvrable mower with ease of use and would give it 5*'s, I would highly recommend this once you are able to build it and it is only this that lets it down ever so slightly.

Top Mower Recently brought a house with a divorced piece of land which was heavily overgrown. This mower went through it like I was on a bowling green. Would highly recommend.

Average Quality Mower at Low Price 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.
