Power, durability and high-specification features – these are the hallmarks of this superior petrol roller-mower from leading British brand Mountfield.
At its heart is a high-output 201cc Honda GCVx200 engine that utilises the globally acclaimed Japanese manufacturer’s overhead-cam (OHC) technology for a significant cut in fuel-costs, vibration and exhaust emissions.
Honda’s Dura-Lube system works with precision-engineered component to ensure you’ll get season after season of unfailing service; while their provision of an automatic choke makes starting ultra-reliable no matter what the conditions.
Highly robust yet remarkably lightweight, the Mountfield SP555RV is constructed around a brand-new hybrid mower-deck made from a blend of aluminium and steel.
It comes with a capacious 75-litre grassbag that combines with an expansive 53cm cutting-width to ensure you’ll get the job done quickly and without many stops; and it features centralised height-of-cut adjustment, so you’ll find it totally straightforward to select the most effective blade-position.
The rear-roller on this model not only produces that eye-catching striped effect, it also propels the mower forward, thereby making the negotiation of slopes and undulating terrain a breeze (the forward-speed can be set to suit the grass-length and terrain-type).
A lowest cut of just 13mm makes it possible to achieve neat, bowling-green-style results; while a hosepipe fixture on the deck means cleaning the undercarriage is a hassle-free operation.
The Mountfield SP555RV Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower employs Mountfield's patented Twinclip technology, whereby the grass is cut twice so as to ensure the maximum amount of clippings are packed into the catcher.
It utilises a high-torque cone-clutch transmission, so it will take slopes and areas of rough in its stride; and it's fitted with an anti-scalp plate that ensures a superior finish when working with the cutting-height set low.
