Anyone looking for a fast and efficient way to keep a larger lawn in tip-top condition should place this high-performance 53cm-cut rotary mower from MTD high on their list of potential purchases (it’s aimed at areas up to 1000m2).
Driving the S53SPO is a powerful 159cc ThorX 50 four-stroke engine from MTD. Thanks to their overhead-valve positioning, these ultra-dependable power-packs offer a substantial reduction in noise, fuel-costs and emissions when compared to less advanced side-valve units. Ignition is easily achieved, via an easy-pull recoil starter.
The MTD S53SPO lets the user select from three cutting-modes (bagging; rear-discharge; optional mulching), so you won’t be defeated by changing weather conditions and grass-type. Contributing further to flexibility-of-use is a six-step height-of-cut that’s quick-and-easy to set using only two levers (the range is from 28mm all the way up to 92mm).
A power-driven machine, the MTD S53SPO Petrol Self-Propelled Lawnmower will come into its own on lawns and informal grass areas with rough sections and banks to negotiate.
It benefits from a fold-down handlebar, so storage and transport won’t prove a problem; and it features a robust steel cutter-deck that works to maximise product-life.
This model comes with a roomy 70-litre grass-catcher, so downtime caused by emptying stops will be minimal.
