If you’re maintaining a smaller lawn and like the idea of the traditional striped finish, this quality rear-roller mower from trusted UK brand Mountfield could well be the machine for you.
Powering it is a easy starting STIGA ST 120 OHV engine; a 123cc four-stroke unit, which, thanks to its overhead-valve configuration, offers reduced fuel-consumption; noise; vibration; and emissions.
A roomy 0.8-litre fuel-tank works with the engine’s fuel-efficient design to ensure plenty of ground can be covered between top-up breaks; while Mountfield’s recoil-starter technology makes achieving ignition a straightforward, stress-free operation.
The Mountfield S421R HP Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower gives the user the choice of five cutting-heights between 20-70mm; so you'll be able to achieve a nice low cut on formal lawn areas whilst also being able to tackle longer grass when needed (adjustments are made using a single lever).
It comes equipped with a high-capacity 55-litre grassbag that combines with the capacious fuel-tank to keep downtime to a minimum; and it’s fitted with collapsible handlebars, so you’ll have no trouble finding a space for it in the shed.
The hand-push design of the Mountfield S421R HP makes it possible to mow safely and accurately around obstacles, as it won’t run away with you, which can sometimes be the case with self-propelled models. The full-width roller also means you can mow right along the edge of your lawn and won't have to tidy up the borders afterwards.
The compact 41cm cutting-width on this model makes it perfect for small-medium lawns up to around 400m2.
