Discerning gardeners looking to get hold of a top-quality mower without breaking the bank should take a look at the Mountfield SP46 Elite!
Delivering a substantial 3.7hp from a displacement of only 145cc is a Honda GCVxe 145 engine with the cutting-edge Japanese manufacturer’s efficiency-optimising and emission-minimising OHV (overhead-valve) technology.
An autochoke system works with a transistorised ignition to ensure ultra-reliable starting; while an aluminium cylinder-sleeve combines with an effective paper-type air-filter to confer superior long-term reliability.
The Mountfield SP46 Elite Self-Propelled 3-in-1 Petrol Lawnmower features a rear-wheel power-drive that will see you breeze over rough terrain and up marked inclines with minimal effort expended.
It’s equipped with a ‘collector full’ indicator, so you won’t have to worry about chute-blocking and spillages; and it boasts extra-large-diameter drive-wheels (280mm) that enhance manoeuvrability and provide no-scuff traction on those more delicate surfaces.
This model lets you choose from six preset cutting-heights (22-80mm) and three mowing-modes (bag; mulch; rear-discharge), thereby enabling you to manage the condition-changes you’ll inevitably have to deal with through the growing-season (height-selection is quick and easy via just one lever).
A 46cm width-of-cut and 60-litre grassbag make the SP46 a good match for areas up to 800m2.
