- Great Mower at a Good Price
Great Mower at a Good Price Great mower and great service! Mower arrived very quickly
- Jolly Good
Jolly Good In terms of assembly everything was fairly straightforward, but a friend would be useful to hold things in place.
Used the mower for the second time today to mow around the beds on our allotment. The mower started first time and we whipped through the job. We have limited aspirations about the area needing to be mowed: short and manageable. It is a no thrills mower, but beats a hand mower hands down and does the job in a fraction of the time. Fuel seems to be economical.
For what we want it is great and we are both chuffed with the buy.
- Good Value for Money
Good Value for Money This is a nice lightweight mower that is easy to handle. It starts first time, whether hot or cold, and it copes well with uneven terrain and longer grass.
My only minor gripe is that the assembly instructions are buried in one of the manuals, with rather small drawings. Having said that, the machine is straightforward to assemble.
- Excellent Little Mower.
Excellent Little Mower. Excellent service, arrived 23 hours after ordering and well packaged. Took 45 minutes to assemble, when securing the upper part of the handle to the lower arms I found it helpful to temporarily attach the second bolt while tightening the first.
After filling the oil reservoir with 450ml of the 600ml supplied and then filling the tank with unleaded petrol (no need for 2 stroke mixing) the engine started on the second pull. The mower cuts well and is very manoeuvrable around the twisting paths where the lawn tractor is unable to access.
- Great Mower for the Price
Great Mower for the Price Have only used it once but it cuts well. Assembly was fairly straightforward, and I didn't have any problems with handles as some others have. I thought it was a nice touch to include oil.
The main thing for me is I don't have to worry about extension leads and accidentally cutting cables, cutting the grass now is a pleasure not a chore.
- For the price you can't beat it
For the price you can't beat it Assembled in about 30 mins, started first time from cold. I warmed it up a bit and it started first time again from hot.
Some of the reviewers have had trouble with the lower-handle screws, once they are lined up with the holes you need to screw in hard as they are basically self-tappers.
The dipstick is yellow and shiny so checking the oil level can be fun. I will make my own from a dowel rod.
A great little mower, very pleased.
- Superb Mower
Superb Mower I bought this mower about 2 months ago. It arrived the day after ordering and, originally, it was bought to cut the grass at the allotment, but since I have had it I no longer use my old electric mower at home as this one is far superior.
I read the reviews about assembly and certainly it's difficult to get the bolts to fit into the handle, but I got there with a little bit of patience and determination. The instructions are OK, slightly too small for my eye sight but the pictures help.
The engine started first time and has done ever since, The quality of the cut is superb and it's so very light I and easy to move my ONLY regret is that I didn't get it sooner. VERY VERY pleased.
- Good Machine
Good Machine Service from MowDirect was first class, item arrived at the time specified. Mower was a little tricky to assemble could not work out where the screws at the bottom of the handle should be put but the handle seems to be secure despite this.
Little opportunity to use it due to the weather we have experienced, but the one cut I have done was very easy and the end result looked good.
- Great Little Machine
Great Little Machine Great service from MowDirect. Speedy delivery, fully recommend this company. The Mountfield HP414 is a lightweight machine that does the job perfectly.
- Good Little Mower
Good Little Mower So much easier than my old electric mower with no cable to manage. Starts really easily and height adjustment is easy. Oil filler cap is a little difficult to get to.
