Description

This Special Offer from MowDirect represents real value for money and provides you with the opportunity to purchase a reliable and generously-sized lawnmower from the UK's leading brand at a truly affordable price.

The Mountfield SP533 has an substantial 51cm cutting-width, enabling you to cover lots of ground with impressive speed and efficiency (it's suitable for medium-large sized lawns up to around 1200m2).

The 160cc Mountfield RM55 OHV petrol engine is fuel-efficient and quiet-running, as well as being incredibly easy to start. It offers plenty of power, thereby making it possible to tackle a variety of grass-types, from formal lawns through to areas of rough.

The capacious 60-litre catcher on the SP533 has been designed to really pack in the grass and to minimise the frequency of trips to the compost-heap. It comes with a hard-top to stop dust rising in drier conditions; and the quality fabric bag aids airflow for superior bagging-performance when the grass is damp.

This versatile machine has a wide range of cutting-heights (25-90 mm), making it suitable for both long and short grass; and it runs on large-diameter ball-bearing wheels which enhance mobility on uneven terrain and won't stiffen-up with age.

A quality powder-coated steel cutter-deck provides added robustness and superior long-term durability; while Mountfield's provision of a mulch-plug means you can save time by working without the grassbag when conditions are amenable.

Features

  • Large-sized petrol lawn mower at very affordable price
  • Extremely reliable and quiet running OHV engine
  • Self-propelled drive system eliminates pushing
  • Quality steel cutting-deck for durability and robustness
  • Large grass-collector for fewer emptying-stops
  • Smooth ball-bearing wheels that won’t stiffen with age
  • Wide range of cutting-heights to suit type and length of grass
  • Single-lever height of cut for ease of use
  • Designed to be used in both wet and dry conditions

Mountfield SP533 Very pleased with mower and at the special price it is very good value which is unbeatable for the cut width and engine size. This replaced another Mountfield I had for many years and glad I chose the more powerful engine as there is a noticeable difference.

MowDirect advice and service was excellent, the mower arrived when advised as temporarily out of stock, was assembled very quickly and filled with supplied oil and off it went. I have a fairly large grass area and the collection box is a tad small but it is autumn now so includes leaves as well, it is also a bit heavier than my previous mower, not really a problem when mowing with the self-propulsion, just getting it into the shed!

Overall I can recommend the mower.

Excellent Mountfield Again Needed a larger self-propelled mower. 3 weeks in and it has coped as expected with controlled speed up long steep lawn. If you have it on low speed the engine noise is minimal!

The controls are easy, the box big enough, the mow height adjustable to what I need and the starting is a single long slowish pull. Cannot fault is so far and service from MowDirect was spot on.

Good Choice Nearly five stars for everything. The 4 star for ease of use is merely because it is quite a heavy machine (certainly compared to my last Mountfield which was a 45cm cut) so getting round tight corners is a bit trickier.

The build quality was nearly given 4 stars, but that was possibly my fault, as when used for the first time one of the circular knobs which connects the handles vibrated loose (despite me having tightened it well) and at the end of my mowing session it had fallen off. (I consequently ran over it unknowingly and cut it to pieces). I had used the supplied washer as instructed but a 'spring' washer instead would probably have prevented this. So new owners beware.....the circular knobs need to be tightened extremely well.

However it seems a solid machine and am quite happy with the purchase.

Apart from that works well (after clean out). Had to cut very long grass -no problem apart from emptying the grass collector. Found the self drive very useful.

Excellent Product and Service from Seller. This is the second time I have purchased this model mower from "MowDirect" for mowing the surrounds at our bowling club. One slight glitch with the first purchase. The drive belt came off. I refitted this myself with no difficulty. I'm told that it was probably an error in assembly at the factory.

Subsequently, the mower has performed perfectly. Hence the purchase of another so we can have two people cutting at the same time. Well pleased me and well pleased club members.

Great Mower On Dry Grass, Poor Collection On Wet Grass I've been using this mower all summer and it works well and does a good job. However I have a couple of grumbles that stop the mower being a truly great machine.

The first is the size and sturdiness of the grass collector. It fills quickly and requires pushing back together occasionally. Also it does not collect the grass well in the wet. Yesterday it had rained before I started mowing. I couldn't put it off as the grass is still growing strongly. Collection of dry grass is usually effortless. However in the wet the grass quickly blocked the mower outlet and couldn't struggle into the bag.

Quality Product Quality machine which both feels and looks good. Even though it is a fairly heavy mower, it glides along quite nicely and smoothly, partly due to the quality of its wheels - so much so that I have not had to engage the self-propulsion system that often.

The height adjustment is easy to use and much sturdier that on the some of the smaller models. The grass collector would seem large enough at 60 litres but, it does fill up rather quickly, suggesting it could do with being a bit bigger.

Tip - try and get assistance when taking out of the box (especially the less muscular amongst us!).

I ordered the SP533 online (very easy to process) and to my astonishment it was delivered by lunch time the next day. Assembly took only a few minutes, I poured in the supplied oil and filled with petrol. It started with the first pull and off it went.

It is light and easy to use and cuts very well. The self-propelled feature really works and I have found that mowing time with this machine is much quicker. A very good machine for a great price.

Not Very Impressed So Far Cannot fault MowDirect, as their service has been excellent throughout and they are only suppliers.

Third time of use and already had a problem with the proximity safety mechanism causing the machine to keep cutting out. Managed to sort the problem (hopefully) myself.

For those of you who like to do your own servicing each year, ignore the 3 year warranty bit, as it is dependent upon you taking the machine to a recognised dealer each year and paying for the privilege. OK if you have one on the doorstep, or don't like dirty fingers.

Have added another support strap to the grass collection box as I can see possibility of a full grass box causing undue stress on the standard box hangings. With hindsight, I am wondering if I should not have just bought a very cheap throwaway mower instead with 12 months warranty. Only time will tell, but it's not a promising start.

Mountfield Self-propelled Mower Ordered mower but unfortunately wasn't in stock so had to wait a week for it. However, it was easy to put together, put in the free oil that came with it, fueled it up and it started on the 3rd pull.

I've only used it twice up to now but it seems fine. I've not used it on wet grass so no comment.

The collection box fills up rapidly but all in all I'm very pleased up to now. The three year warranty is also a bonus. I've only given 4 stars for performance because not used it on wet grass yet.

Exactly What I Wanted Being a lady, I was looking for a reasonably lightweight petrol mower which I could start easily and could control properly. Having various different levels in our garden, I was also looking for a mower that could cut our lawn to perfection, yet handle the tough grass in our orchard.

I've found it. Having 5 different current heights and wheels that adjust to the terrain is just perfect. Can't say enough how pleased I am with my purchase. Have used lawnmowers with Briggs and Stratton motors before and have previously owned an old Mountfield. This one does not disappoint.

Disappointing The mower that doesn't like cutting grass. Not only is it a pig to start, but the grass collector only half fills, it then backs up and cuts out. There is something fundamentally wrong with the design of this mower.

The engine is nowhere near as good as my old Briggs and Stratton. It takes me a lot longer to mow my lawn as I am constantly emptying a half full bag and trying to restart the damn thing. I am glad to see the back of it.

Great Product Box states oil not provided, so I went and bought some, opened the box and there was oil provided!

Took a little while to put machine together, but not too difficult. Book said that the capacity of the oil was 0.55l, so I carefully poured half of the oil from the 1l bottle provided and found that I had over filled it. My fault, but I went by the amounts in the manual. The other problem is that you are told not to over fill, but not what to do if you have. Anyway, it still started and cut the grass really well, so I can't complain and the oil level will soon lower.

Would I recommend it to someone else? Yes, but I have only done 1 cut. Will let you know after the first year.

It cuts very well, height adjustment is easy. Self propulsion takes a little getting used to (never had that system before). I agree the grass box has to be emptied regularly, but with the large cut what do you expect? I don't see they could increase the volume much, not enough width left and a deeper box would be too heavy when full on the supports (in my opinion).

Overall a good buy from a good company.

Easy to start and does a good job on my very large garden. My only comment is that the grass collection box is too small for such a big mower. The upside of this is that it keeps you fit running to and from to the compost bin!

Mountfield SP533 - Great Mower and for the Price Even Better Bought this lawnmower as it was on special offer and good value for money as it was cheaper than elsewhere. There was a small delay as it was out of stock, but was promised a delivery at the end of the month, MowDirect kept me informed at every stage of the transaction via email and phone calls.

Mower delivered within courier's time slot and put in garage as requested by my wife as I was at work.

Mower put together easily with good instructions. Filled with oil (not included) topped up with petrol and started first time (even the wife could start it). Mowed the garden and even though it was very wet, the SP533 coped admirably can't wait to use it in the dry.

Would recommend the SP533.

Good Value for a Mower of This Size After hours of reading through reviews I finally opted to switch from a Hayter machine and buy a Mountfield mower to cope with my very large, and in places very uneven, garden.

The machine was delivered on time, was easy to assemble and started first time. Took a little while to get used to the speed of the self-propelled drive but very pleased with the end result.

Height adjuster is not the easiest to use and I have to agree with a number of other reviewers about the capacity of the grass collector. 60 litres is too small for a 21" inch wide cut, 70 litres would be much better.

Also, one minor niggle which influenced my decision to give 4 stars for build quality, the centre part of one of the front wheels pinged off during first time of use. Overall, first impressions are good.

Superb I had a smaller, cheaper Mountfield Mower from B&Q which lasted 6 years and needed a replacement. I bought a much cheaper mower from Wilko with a Briggs & Stratton Engine which should have been excellent but wasn't. The cheap mower didn't give a good finish and constantly "Scraped" my grass, unless I had it on a high setting which I didn't want. So I decided to give up and spoke to MowDirect.

After explaining that I have a "hilly garden", which is pretty large, this beast of a machine was recommended to me. I am absolutely delighted with it. It covers my garden with ease, leaves lovely stripes and cuts on the lowest setting without any issues. So although this was nearly twice the cost of the other machine, it is well worth it and I guess you DO get what you pay for!

Great Product. Firstly - excellent service from the supplier regarding delivery. Very easy to assemble and after fuelling and oiling; it started second pull would you believe?

The Which report said it was not as good as it could be on short grass but OK in all other areas. I found it good in all areas although a little on the heavy side.

My main reason for choosing this mower is that my last mower was a Mountfield Empress, very similar to this one but not self propelled. I bought it 30 yrs ago. Never had it serviced, just kept topping it up with oil. It still worked but a hole appeared in the casing. If I get 30 yrs out of this one - No complaints!!

A very bad purchase When my previous Mountfield mower fell apart after only 6 years I decided never again to purchase another machine from the same manufacturer. The special offer from MowDirect was however too tempting so I bought a new SP533. I used it for the first time this week and my once beautiful lawn has now got a series of scuffed edges.

This machine would be ideal for large expanses of grass such as a school field but it is no use if you have a lawn with nicely trimed edges. The problem is that the powered rear wheels suddenly flop over the edges if you carry out a linear cut - the machine then suddenly wanders off into the flower beds.

This is a major design fault as the rear wheels should have been positioned at the same centres as those at the front. The only way to cut lawn edges is to attack them at a 30 degree angle that is time consuming to say the least. My other concern is that the grass box is attached with PLASTIC lugs - I wonder how long these will last before they snap off?

This has been a very bad purchase!

Mountfield quality at reasonable price. I bought the SP533 to replace my SP530 that had packed up (gearbox) aged 11 years. I'd looked at many options from many manufacturers but decided, with a little help from MowDirect, to stick to the reliable name of Mountfield. My budget was fairly tight, but I wanted a quality product that would hopefully last for many years, but with good parts availability should something need replacing.

The SP533 is not the latest model, which may explain the discount. It has it's own brand engine (I'd have preferred a Honda or B&S but the budget wouldn't allow). It is limited in features compared to some but I don't want bells and whistles, I want a decent mower that will perform well and hopefully last for many years.

Out of the box the SP533 was easy to assemble, there's not really much left to do. Once oil (not provided) and petrol were added it started with a gentle pull. Engine appears to run very well and sounds good. Two-speed feature is good but anything slower than top speed is not much use for me - may be better for some though.

First cut was really good, easy to use, good speed, quality cut. It's good that you don't have to prime the petrol now too, as I did on the old one.

The only downside I can see is that the 60 litre grass box is a little small and fills quite quickly, though stopping and starting again is really easy with no priming necessary.

Only time will tell how good this mower is, but on first impressions I'd highly recommend it to anyone with a good sized lawn with any kind of slope. The power drive is brilliant, faster than the SP530 and the lawn was done much quicker than before.

Great service from MowDirect, good advice given on phone and free time slot delivey next day.

Very Good The Mountfield SP533 overall is an excellent mower. It is easy to start and effortless to use even when cutting longer grass.

The single lever height adjustment is so easy to use and the larger cutting width of 51cm means less traipsing up and down the lawn.

The only two downsides to the SP533 is that the grass box needs to be larger, and the self propelled speed needs to be quicker.

Other than that an excellent mower and highly recommended.

I would also highly recommend MowDirect for an excellent no fuss next day delivery.

First impressions very good Used for the first time last weekend on long wet grass. Cut the grass very well. It was simple to put together and is very sturdy.

The only slight complaint would be that the handle cannot be folded very easy to save space; the top half will bend but then catches the cables.
