Product information

Description

Thanks to its straightforward hand-propelled design, the Mountfield S481-HP 4-Wheeled Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower is very easy to control and manoeuvre, thereby making it ideal if you’ve got lots of trees, shrubs and garden ornaments to work around.

Its top-quality 140cc Mountfield ST45 overhead-valve engine offers consistently reliable starting, and, thanks to its OHV arrangement, delivers the sort of performance and long-term reliability normally associated with more expensive lawn mowers.

The Mountfield S481-HP is built around an exceptionally robust powder-coated pressed-steel chassis that confers impressive durability and provides a rigid and stable cutting-platform. Its wide-ranging five-stage cutting-height (26 – 72mm) allows you to make performance-boosting adjustments to the blade-position via a convenient single lever; while a roomy 60-litre grass-collector allows you to work for longer before breaking-off to visit the compost-heap.

Not just a bagger, the S481-HP is also mulch-capable, so you can work without the collector if the grass is short and dry enough.

Other key features include an OPC (Operator Presence Control) for enhanced operator-safety; and a 'bag full' indicator that works to prevent overfilling and spillages.

Features

  • A high-quality but affordable petrol rotary-mower from a long-established and trusted British brand
  • Powerful but clean-burning and fuel-efficient four-stroke OHV engine from Mountfield themselves
  • Capable of either bagging or mulching grass-clippings
  • Simple single-lever cutting-height adjustment mechanism
  • Powder-coated sheet-steel deck confers rugged strength and robustness
  • 'Bag full' indicator lets you know when the catcher's at capacity
  • Hand-propelled - great for obstacle-packed lawns

Good performance mower This is a good lawnmower if you can work out how to put it together. The instructions come for different models which make it hard to see which instruction is for the mower you have purchased. I resulted to YouTube which showed full build from opening the box to mowing the grass and even the cleaning. I was close to sending it back but glad I persevered as it’s a good mower and cuts the grass very well. I couldn’t find out how much oil to first put in but the YouTube demonstrates exactly what you need to do. A good feature that my last Mountfield didn’t have is the ability to put a hosepipe on the mower, then run the machine which cleans underneath very well. My last Mountfield lasted 18 years, hope this one does at least the same!

Strong Bit of Kit This machine runs really well (as you would expect) and cuts beautifully.

I wouldn't want this to put anyone off but my only gripes would be the self-cleaning deck plug doesn't work (at all), it doesn't clean anything lol, and the grass collection indicator isn't much use. However, these are two things you don't need really and it doesn't affect performance.

Great Piece of Kit for Your Garden! Strong build quality, yet surprisingly light to manoeuvre! Instructions to put together aren't the easiest to follow but with patience they fall into place. Thankfully the grass collection basket is more or less done for you! Phew, that was a relief!

The supplied oil is a great touch, yes although the oil filler neck is in a slightly awkward place, the shape of the bottle when angled correctly works a treat! Started second pull, engine sounds pretty quiet, the 48 cm cut just munches through the lawn in no time!

Did order the 45 cm one first, so glad I changed my mind! The service from MowDirect was fantastic, from start to finish they kept me updated and informed.

Mountfield S481-HP 4-Wheeled Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower (Push-Type) I used to have a Mountfield 100cc and it was for ever having difficulties in cutting the grass, so I decided to invest in a bigger engine and I could honestly say it's the best purchase i have made. Plus, the service from MowDirect was excellent

Rubbish Assembly Instructions. The machine Itself seems OK 1. Ordered 10th June 2016 - delivered next day. It does seem good value, robust and well built.

2. Assembly - bit perplexing- difficult to follow instructions. It tries to cover several different machines. E.g I didn't understand that this model has a mulching "chute " duh! - had to phone Customer support who were very helpful.

3. First cut is good - started 2nd pull - long, wettish grass - my lawn is about 400 m2

4. I bought this because I had a similar Mountfield Honda engine, which has done well for 18 years ; plus, it got 74% rating in Which? BUT this isn't Honda, and it's a smaller engine ... the real test is : efficiency over time, and reliability.

5. Also - is the Warranty worthless? How do I get it serviced by an "Accredited Mountfield Agent "? (I'm in West London)

Happy mowing !

Overall Good I think the instructions could be clearer as some of it is guess work. The oil filler needs a funnel with an extendable spout as the inlet is in an awkward place.

Also the cap which screws on the oil inlet is fiddly to say the least. Apart from that is is a great mower and well worth the money..
