Product information

Description

With this impressive machine from Mountfield you get the long-established British brand’s usual blend of superior build-quality, high-spec features and flexibility of use.

The Mountfield SP485HW-V comes driven by a Honda GCVx145 engine; a 145cc premium-range power-unit with Autochoke for consistently reliable starting; and OHC technology for higher engine-speeds, less noise and reduced fuel-consumption.

Honda’s Dura-Lube system enhances longevity by protecting key parts from premature wear; while their provision of automatic decompression means low-effort pull-starts.

With a steel-cutter-deck at its heart, the Mountfield SP485HW-V will easily handle the inevitable bumps and knocks it will encounter during its operation life.

It boasts a roomy 70-litre grass-catcher with a hard top that keeps dust and pollen particles contained during very dry weather; and it features a ‘bag full’ indicator that makes it easy to keep track of the fill-level, which in turn prevents over-packing and the subsequent blockages.

This model benefits from an ultra-responsive variable-speed transmission with a cone-clutch design for durability and a marked increase in torque. The ability to adjust the ground-speed makes it possible to adapt to both the grass-length and the type of terrain you’re dealing with.

Button-controlled height-of-cut adjustment ensures selecting any of the six blade-positions is super-simple; while extra-large-diameter drive-wheels provide increased traction and make it much easier to manoeuvre in long grass.

If you’d prefer not to collect clippings, you can choose to either rear-discharge or mulch them (mulch-plug included).

Great Purchase I purchased the Mountfield SP485HW after a good old search and comparison with other mowers and suppliers to replace another Mountfield I had for many years and I am very happy. A simple phone call and some excellent advice and service and the mower was delivered the following day. I assembled the handle and collection box very quickly and filled with supplied oil and started first time. Tip: there is a fuel supply cut off switch that I didn't see mentioned in the instructions so turn this on first!

I am glad I chose the powerful engine as a noticeable difference to my previous mower, but do I need the variable speed? Not so sure in my garden! The grass-box is a good size and the self-propulsion makes cutting very easy even though it is quite a bit heavier than my previous mower.

Overall I can happily recommend both the mower and MowDirect.

An Excellent Mower I was inat least two minds when I called MowDirect to discuss buying a new mower and was both relieved and impressed with the expert advice I was given.

Having then chosen the nearest replacement for a 25 year old worn out Mountfield that had finally given up, I couldn't be happier. This is lighter than the earlier model though still sturdy, more manoeuvrable and more powerful, and still has the ultra reliable Honda engine.

Five stars.

Thank Goodness He Likes It The first mower received we had to exchange, nothing wrong with the mower just a tad too fast for the drivers (apparently okay for the car but not for a mower). So it was exchanged and I was holding my breath after first use. This is the second Mountfield we've had and I couldn't understand why he didn't go for one a second time. The mower sent back had an electronic start, which was wonderful. This one hasn't but it is easy to start, usually on first pull.

It doesn't seem to be as noisy as the old one, makes a lovely job and the deck washer feature suits him down to the ground, he uses it every time. Best of all the variable speed is perfect and has turned a dreaded job into a pleasure. Also from my point of view it is good to look at. Finally it has a Honda motor, which I understand from a friend with a 'degree' in lawnmowers is the best of all.

So yes, highly recommended and well worth the cost.

Great Looking Mower, Sturdy Build. I bought this mower as I was after something reliable and sturdy. Only used once so far but the build quality appears great, no issues starting - relatively quiet to use, looks to tick all the boxes so far.

Only let down was the delivery, given mower is over 35kgs disappointing one man in his van delivered it and no sack trolley in his van on day of delivery!

My First Lawnmower.. It's my first lawnmower so I don't have a lot to compare with, but I do have a large and difficult lawn and this really does do a very good job of it. Like others, the instructions were for a different type of handle so the assembly wasn't without some head scratching, but I eventually figured it out.

Seems to be well made but I guess time will tell. I love the really simple cut height adjuster (one button operation) and the big wheels for my rough terrain. I feel confident that the Honda motor will be as reliable as its reputation suggests.

All in all, happy with lawnmower and very happy with MowDirect. Highly recommend both.

Excellent Mower Great replacement for my 20 year old Mountfield which has just expired after many years hard work. The build quality is brilliant and the Honda Engine really is smooth and easy to start.
Great Mower.

A SUPER MOWER This is the third Mountfield I have bought from MowDirect over the last 20 years, my first two worked very well for 9 and 11 years respectfully. My current model was up and running in 30 minutes. The Honda engine started first pull.

I have approx an acre of grass from semi-rough to reasonable sward, this mower mulch-cut it effortlessly in 2 hrs. Highly reccomended machine, especially with the very reliable Honda engine.
