Quality features, rugged build-quality and powerful performance are the defining characteristics of the well-equipped MTD Optima 53SPH HW.
Driving it is a GCV160 engine from Honda. These premium 160cc power-units benefit from a uni-block construction that works with an overhead-cam (OHC) and compact combustion-chamber to minimise exhaust emissions and fuel-costs.
Honda’s Dura-Lube technology ensures smooth, low-wear operation for enhanced durability; while their provision of automatic mechanical decompression means you’ll be able to achieve ignition with a gentle, two-finger pull on the starter-rope.
The MTD Optima 53 SPH HW Petrol Lawnmower has a roomy 70-litre grassbag and an extra-wide 53cm width-of-cut; a combination that allows for the rapid coverage of lawns up to 1500m2.
It can also mulch, rear-discharge or side-discharge clippings, so you’ll be able to work without the catcher if conditions are conducive; and it has a steel cutter-deck at its heart, so superior longevity is guaranteed.
Boasting a power-drive to its large-diameter rear-wheels, the MTD Optima 53 SPH HW will breeze its way up slopes and take rough ground in its stride.
A hosepipe fixture means you’ll be able to clean the underneath of the deck without flipping the mower onto its side; while ball-bearing-type mountings ensure the wheels will stay free-rolling over time.
Also featured is an ergonomically-shaped handle that can be height-adjusted to match the user’s stature; and collapsed to maximise available space in the shed.
