Product information

Description

With the Mountfield SP42 you get classic design, superior build-quality and numerous convenience-features, all at a rock-bottom price!

Making it tick is a super-efficient Stiga ST120 engine that develops a sizeable 2.5hp from a displacement of only 123cc; and which, thanks to its overhead-valve (OHV) configuration, will prove clean-burning, cheap to run and pleasingly quiet in operation.

Not just a cut & collect machine, the versatile Mountfield SP42 Petrol Lawnmower can also be set-up to mulch - instead of being bagged, cut-grass in retained under the cutter-deck, where it’s reduced to a fine mulch that will quickly rot and vanish, leaving your lawn clippings-free and naturally nourished.

The Mountfield SP42’s compact 41cm cut and power-driven rear-wheels blend to make it great match for smaller areas with inclines and areas of rough, tussocky ground.

It features ‘collector full’ indication, so it’s unlikely you’ll overfill and block the discharge-chute; and it’s supplied with a roomiest-in-class 60-litre grassbag that’s made from breathable canvas to as to maximise catcher-capacity.

Offering six preset cutting-heights - simple to select via just the one lever - the Mountfield SP42 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawnmower is flexible in use and can be adapted to produce the finish you prefer.

This model is based around a robust steel chassis, so you can expect excellent strength and durability.

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
  • Effort-saving self-propulsion
  • 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

Can't wait for the grass to grow so I can use it again! I ordered an SP41, but was quickly advised by Mow Direct that it was not available due to incorrect stock figures from manufacturers. The order was quickly cancelled by MowDirect and somebody phoned to explain and recommend a similar but slightly better alternative, no pressure but I decided to go with recommendation of SP42 . As it turned out glad I did - it has more power and single lever height adjustment. Instructions - as ever lots of diagrams, minimal text in many languages some of the details in the diagrams are different to model supplied but not to difficult to work out. Grass box assembly - just worked it out for myself. And difficult to find how much oil to put in the thing. Google came up with the answer! Having put it together it is a brilliant machine, starts and runs easy, feels as though it could cope with reasonable slope (but I don't really have any). No trouble to use and quick around a medium size garden with lots of trees and awkward bits. I now find I can't wait for the grass to grow so I can use it again!

Good service Needed a little mower for a small patch of lawn and this was the perfect choice. Mow direct gave a good price and the product was delivered a few days later, what more do you want.

Excellent product I was a little bit worried when I read that a number of components in the build were plastic that it would not be heavy enough to handle my lawn which had not been cut since at least September, we moved in December, however it cut through it like a knife through butter and took the uneven ground in it's stride.
A good solid machine and excellent value for money.
Some of the instructions I found a little vague, particularly the placing of the cables, but sorted it out eventually, also the packaging was wrecked when it arrived and the screws and washers for the grass box were missing but I found an alternative.
Looking forward to many years of happy mowing..

Excellent Mower Really easy to assemble. Started first pull of the cord!

Lovely cut and the self propelled feature is easy to use, just another bar to pull .... really helpful as our garden has a bit of an incline.

Arrived swiftly and well packaged.

Mountfield Mower Needed mower in hurry as Hayter refused to start. Instructions far from clear but got it all assembled. Once filled it is a really good machine, quiet engine, very easy to turn despite s rather than roller, nice large grass box. One thing, not to let grass box too full, or plastic clips come undone! all in all, great service and machine.

Great Sound Lawnmower, amazing customer service First shipment went wrong and delivery service lost the parcel. Luckily Neil was on the phone to me straight away and upgraded my purchase to SP46 as they didn't have stock of the SP42. Just lost one day overall and my other half had a nice birthday surprise.

Machine was put together in 5minutes and works wonderfully. 10 stars. Thanks, MowDirect!

Adequate Assembly and ease of use good, starts easily but doesn't run smoothly, but to date hasn't stalled. Drive mode is too urgent and wheels tend to skid on a low cut.
