Mountfield SP53 Lawnmower
First off, I bought this mower from MowDirect & can highly recommend the company. Answered the phone promptly, pre & post-sale, and were consistently polite & helpful.
The mower replaces my old 51cm Mountfield which I had used without problems, for 12 years. A little surface rust & the imminent need for a service prompted me to change the mower now. I only considered this Mountfield SP53 as it was the closest to my last machine & I am already delighted with the purchase.
It starts on the first or second pull of the cord & handles like a dream. Being self-drive, I actually found it easier to use than a small electric hover mower on my daughter's lawn!
The SP53 appears to be the Mountfield budget model for this range & at £300, it offers great value. It was certainly not worth paying an extra £60 for the Honda engine if my last Mountfield was anything to go by.
I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending this machine for medium to large lawns.
