Absence Makes the Heart go Honda!!
My name is Dan and I used to own an orange hover mower. There I've said it. My shame is out. But don't judge me for I have seen the light!
From its sexy silver steel deck to the Honda engine you can start with a mere tickle rather than a full on hernia inducing lurch, the Mountfield HP425 is an absolute delight.
Every part of the design is top notch and for what you get, the price is a bargain. But more importantly than its list of (admittedly impressive) tech specs, the thing I will be most grateful for is that it has actually made me enjoy mowing the lawn again. I used to stare out of the window, silently seething at each blade of grass' minuscule but unrelenting growth. Praying for winter so that I could get a few months off from garden duty. But now I'm just counting down the days until I can get this beauty back out of the shed for another spin around the green.
God bless you Mountfield and Honda, you have spawned a machine I will love forever. No annoying cable, no sweeping the neighbourhood to pick up grass cuttings that have blown far and wide. No hunched posture and profanity-laden mumblings. Just man and machine in perfect harmony.
