Product information

Description

Enjoy a rapid work-rate, typically robust British build-quality and enhanced flexibility of use with this top quality three-in-one petrol rotary-mower from trusted UK brand Mountfield!

Packing a serious punch is a Honda GCV170 engine; a powerful 166cc four-stroke air-cooled motor that delivers a hefty 4.4hp; and which features the world-famous Japanese manufacturer’s own fuel-saving and emission-minimising overhead-valve (OHV) technology.

An aluminium cylinder-sleeve optimises compression and confers superior durability; while an electronic ignition works with Honda's Autochoke system to make the starting-process fast and hassle-free.

The Mountfield SP53’s versatile three-in-one design means you can choose to either bag, mulch or rear-discharge cut-grass, with mulching-mode delivering a substantial 30% reduction in mowing-time.

It boasts rear-wheel self-propulsion, so you’ll have no trouble traversing slopes and rough terrain; and it benefits from extra-large-diameter drive-wheels (280mm) for easy manoeuvrability and superior long-grass turning-ability.

Thanks to its expansive 51cm cutting-width, the Mountfield SP53 Elite Self-Propelled 3-in-1 Petrol Lawnmower will cover lots of ground with every pass and is therefore suitable for large-area domestic use.

Other key features include a front-mounted skid-plate for improved collection and a scalp-free finish; and a five-stage adjustable height-of-cut for the management of condition-changes throughout the growing-season.

Features

  • A versatile three-in-one petrol lawnmower from trusted UK brand Mountfield
  • Offers bagging, mulching and rear-discharge as standard
  • Premium Honda engine with an OHV for lower fuel-costs and a cut in exhaust emissions
  • Autochoke and electronic ignition for dependable, low-effort recoil-starts
  • Self-propelled drive for the easy coverage of tussocky grass
  • Strong and durable steel mower-deck
  • Large-capacity canvas catcher with a dust-limiting hard top
  • Cutting-height quick and easy to set using a single lever
  • Large, high-traction drive-wheels aid long-grass manoeuvrability
  • Handy 'bag full' indicator

Great mower, versatile and easy Have used this a few times now since purchased in June. We have approx 0.8 acre of grass to cut, we live in Wales and its grows like mad. Its hilly, slopey and bumpy. We have an old Mountfield that was left here at the cottage, its purely a mulcher, no grass collection. So you have to stay on top of the cutting, which means weekly at the moment. We wanted a mower which could collect just so perhaps we could skip the odd week or two :) This new mover performs admirably. Cuts incredibly short, in fact I can't go to the lowest level as it scalps in places, but on the second to lowest level it cuts lovely. First cut was on collection as the grass was too long to mulch, not overly long less than 2 weeks growth. It took 2 hours, most of that was emptying the collector which seems to fill in seconds, and the walk to the compost. Next cut the following week it took just under an hour on mulcher, no collection. We flew round. Self propelled helped me on the inclines and I engage and disengage as I need. Overall I was very impressed. Easy starts, first pull each time. Easy assembly. My only gripes, the collector fills quick, but then I'm cutting short. Second, the inside plastic wheel trims for front wheels keep unclipping and falling out, did this every cut. I've resorted to smearing on some silicone in places to keep them on. Think the manufacturer needs a better mechanism for keeping them on.

Superb Mower / Superb Delivery Service Ordered 10:45pm on 21st June, delivered 3:00pm following day, very fast helpful, polite service.
The Mower:
In the past ive always used a Suffolk Punch 14" cylinder petrol mower. This is the first large one of its type i have bought. Its well made, the motor is more that adequate, starts easily, cutting height adjustment is easy to operate. The grass collector holds a lot more than my old mower did so it doesnt need emptying so often. Engaging power to the rear wheels wow there is loads of torque available 100% satified customer. Thank you

Good spec machine but some assembly bits missing Nice Mower but mine may have slipped a QA check as no assembly fittings for handle and one of the wheel covers was off and would not clip back into place. No replacement turned up so removed wheel and fix myself. Would have expected better from Mountfield. Handle fixings did turn and machine started first pull. Email communication could have been a bit slicker but bought in strange times.

Very speedy delivery and an excellent mower. I have a large area to cut and previously used a wheeled strimmer but now needed a better finish and the cut grass collected. This mower did everything asked of it .

Fit for purpose As always service from Mowdirect was excellent.Machine arrived promptly even during the covid 19 problems..Mower itself was easy to assemble and started first pull.Like other reviews the Honda element of the machine is excellent, and will no doubt last for many years. Some parts of the Mountfield deck , and grass collecting not very robust. Mulching plug not used yet but is very flimsy piece of thin plastic . I doubt thus will last. Have used mower now twice and the covers on the back of both front wheels have come loose and detached from the wheel itself. Does not affect the use of the machine just the cosmetic view..I will no doubt either remove or fix in place with external silicon sealant. Machine itself is good value for money.

Excellent lawnmower Lawnmower delivered as advertised and assembly easy. Once oil and petrol put in started first pull and easy to use. Well pleased with appearance of lawn. If any criticism the grass box could be slightly bigger, otherwise well pleased.
I would definitely recommend if looking for a mower to tackle the larger lawns

Great product, very good service I bought this machine because my gardener is self-isolating during the Covid 19 virus outbreak. I find his machines are very heavy and difficult to manage. The machine arrived at the agreed time and it was easy to assemble. The varying heights that it can be set to is ideal as the grass is extremely long. It cuts well even when the grass is wet. I'm afraid that I must echo the same comments as others in that my wife finds the pull cord hard to pull and is often defeated; to her annoyance. On reflection I should have spent more and got the electric start instead. As it standsi t is not always easy to start. The machine is extremely maouverable and is a very sturdy machine.

One very happy owner Good service from Mowdirect, they changed my order (before despatch) at my request without any problem. Delivery was on time following my order over Easter. I'm glad I went for the (Mountfield) model with the Honda engine as starting has been first time ever time so far. Assembly was simple however there are no instructions on how to install the mulching attachment. Good value for a 52cm machine.

great mower this is a great mower, and so easy to start and run. I kept it in the basement all winter, took it out into the sunshine yesterday to warm it up, turned open the fuel lever....and it started on the second pull …...fantastic ! plus you dont have to be a string man to start it, a child cold. overall im very impressed. the HONDA part is fantastic..the MOUNTFIELD is ok, but together they make a great mower..go on, buy one

Good Mower but “electronic start” Misleading I recently purchased this as I wanted an upgrade to my existing mower, but I was trying to avoid a pull cord as my wife struggles with these. One of the reasons I bought this mower apart from the brand, was that it kept referring to an “electronic start “ in the write-up, although this is clearly not the case as you have to use a pull cord! I was subsequently advised that it does mention “recoil” start in the summary, but unless you are knowledgable about mowers, to the layman this does not mean much.

The mower itself is good quality with the Honda engine so overall very good although the wife may now have an excuse for not mowing the lawn!
