Product information

Description

Powered by a dependable, clean-running and fuel-efficient 160cc Mountfield over-valve (OHV) engine, the Mountfield S481-PD Power-Driven Petrol Lawnmower has been designed to give a superior finish on all types of lawn and to handle typically changeable British conditions.
The provision of a power-drive to the rear-wheels eliminates the need to push, making this model particularly suitable if your lawn has sloping sections, or areas of rough, tussocky grass.

The Mountfield S481-PD is constructed around a robust powder-coated pressed-steel deck, which provides a rigid and stable cutting-platform and confers impressive durability.

Its six-stage height-of-cut (26 – 72mm) is adjustable via a single lever, making it quick and easy to set the blade position so you can achieve your desired finish; while ball-bearing mounts for the wheels ensure a smooth run over bumpy terrain.



Other features include a generous 60-litre grass-collector, which is made from canvas, so it takes up less space in shed; and a safety-enhancing Operator Presence Control, which ensures the engine is cut when you are away from the controls.

If conditions suit, you can cut mowing-time by ditching the catcher and fitting the included mulch-plug.

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
  • Self-propelled - great for sloping lawns

Generally a Reasonably Priced Mower Which Does as it Says Arrived on a pallet which could not be delivered across a gravel driveway! Fathomed out the way to assemble the mower and all has gone well since.

Not particularly attributable to this model alone, but it is difficult to mow the edge of a lawn without the wheels inching over the edge and a damaging cut to the grass

Good Machine, customer service was problematic. A well-built machine that cuts the lawn extremely well. A little bit heavy to manoeuvre in tighter spaces and on slopes - but that's more a problem with my lawn than the machine!
Mower started the first time after assembly, BUT I am still confused that the illustration shows a throttle control and mine does not have one? So it goes at one pace - which is OK in itself, but a little confusing.


The description says next working day delivery - this is not true. I phoned to ask where mine was and everyone was "in a meeting". Four phone calls later and I was told it's not next day because it comes from the manufacturer not from MowDirect. So, in the end, it took 3 days delivery. This should be made clear as I had already arranged to be here the "next day".

Good Quality My mower was delivered next day but had been damaged in transit. MowDirect sorted replacement immediately and was delivered quickly.

Assembly was easy, filled mower with petrol/oil and it started 1st time, very pleased so far! Great service from MowDirect.

Good Machine Mountfield machines are good machines, and this one is great. My husband used to repair mowers for a living so knows which machines to buy.

Excellent Value for the Money I use very expensive mowing machinery as part of my job, so I knew what I was looking for in a mower for my own garden. This one ticked all the boxes. Starts first time, looked after it will should last 15 years at least.

Broke after 3 mows of the lawn WAIT FOR COUPLE MORE GOOD REVIEWS This mower is Ok, but not great. The mulching feature is terrible and the engine labours with anything other than pristine lawn grass. Unfortunately I have used this mower just three times and the propelling motion broke...I have owned it just 6 weeks. Be wary of this mower.

Some problems 1. Mower contained a 'mulching' feature not mentioned in the manual. This made a mess of my lawn until I contacted Technical Support for instructions on how to remove it.

2. The oil dipstick does not have 'max' and 'min' markings as specified in the manual.

3. It is impossible to disconnect the spark plug - I can't get my fingers into the space available so cannot grip the connector

Excellent but where does grass go. Is it being mulched? Cuts lawn very well but we cannot understand where the grass goes! We used to get two large square garden bags filled to the brim after cutting but with this new mower the grass is cut beautifully but there is hardly any grass in the collecting bag. My husband used to have to empty the bag about four times. We are mystified. Can anyone explain this?
