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 Mountfield 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.
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.
Delivered on time, looks a good machine, only thing it is a bit fast, it will take a little time to get used to, but does the job well.

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!

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.
