- Very Good Machine
Very Good Machine I've had this mower for a few weeks. It was delivered in a few days, was easy to assemble and started first pull. Easy to operate a good powerful mower with a wide cut.
Very pleased with it
- Good Quality Mower
Good Quality Mower A good quality mower at good price. A little on the heavier side, but the larger cutting width reduces time taken. Good finish on lawn. Time will tell regarding reliability, other cheaper mowers become obsolete because of no spare parts available
- Great Mower But Flimsy Grass Box
Great Mower But Flimsy Grass Box Easy to assemble lawn mower - after filling with oil and petrol it started first pull of the chord.
The only issue I have with the mower is that the grass box & grass flap are both flimsy plastic - not to the same standard as the actual mower. The grass box is also a little fiddly to put back on after emptying. All in all a great mower though.
This is the second Oleo-Mac product I`ve bought from MowDirect and will go back to them when I need something else.
- Easy to Use
Easy to Use Brought this mower to replace my old Mountfield Briggs and Stratton. Easy to assemble, took about ten minutes.
Followed instructions for starting and started first pull. No priming the carb with this engine. Really quiet and easy to use.
If I had one gripe it would be that the cutting height doesn't cut as low as my old mower.
- All round good machine
All round good machine Chose this machine after many hours reading all info on many othe lawnmowers. The grass box is much bigger and better constructed than my previous Mountfield box which fell apart if grass was very wet and heavy. Also, the grass cutting width is better and seems to take much less time to cut grass and I dont seem to be using as much petrol as I did before.
I do not find the machine too heavy when pushing because it seems to cut the grass better, even long grass is no problem. With the Mountfield I always had to push machine back and forth before it would cut long grass .
As regards assembly cannot say because someone else put it together for me but they didn't seem to have any problems.
All in all very good machine and only problem I had was with delivery. Would recommend quick phone call to MowDirect to check delivery date before ordering as I wrongly assumed if I ordered Friday night it would be delivered following Monday when I was at home all day. MowDirect work on a Monday to Friday week so order was not dispatched till Tuesday when I was not at home and things went wrong after that but that's another story.
- A quality mower at reasonable cost !
A quality mower at reasonable cost ! Having trawled the internet for a replacement for my ageing Murray mower I happened on the Olio-Mac G48-PK on the MowDirect website, and having received prompt responses to several queries, placed the necessary order.
The part assembled unit then arrived promptly, and only took approx. 20 minutes to complete the final assembly, add the oil and fuel and prepare for the first grass cutting of the year.
To my surprise, the motor started easily with the first pull of the starting cord, and having adjusted the height of cut, commenced to mow the lawn, with the engine only at half throttle, being reasonably quiet throughout.
Even though the grass was quite wet, the cut was clean and the 60 litre rear box accepted a good quantity of compacted, cut grass which meant less emptying than my previous mower.
Generally I have been pleasantly pleased with the service received during the ordering and delivery of the mower, the construction thereof, and its operation, with my only minor criticism being the individual wheel adjustments necessary to modify the cutting height.
Each wheel has to be adjusted independently, and this seems rather 'fiddly' due to the 'levers' being rather short, although possibly this will improve with use.
So, in conclusion, I consider this unit to be soundly constructed, operates efficiently, and was supplied at good value by a company that I can recommend to others and will use again!
- Very good value for the money !
Very good value for the money ! Received the mower (sub-assembled in a very large box), and carried out the minor 'assembly' in order to construct the finished article which took approx' 15 minutes.
Read the supplied instruction manual, added oil and fuel, pulled the starter cord and to my surprise it fired up immediately and settled into a steady tick-over, controlled by the handily placed throttle lever!
The engine seems quiet, powerful, sturdy in construction, as does the overall mower details, and the large 60 litre grass box compacts the collected grass, meaning fewer stops to empty.
I used it for the 'first' grass cut of the season, with substantial growth present, but the mower only required half throttle and fuel usage seems economic thus far.
Generally, this seems to be a quality product, and the only minor criticisms I'd make so far relate to the cutting height / wheel adjustments, via levers on each wheel, which would be improved if they were longer. Plus, to fold the handle for storage requires the removal of two bolts. ( Not relevant if adequate storage space is available !).
Conclusion: - So far, this seems a good product which does all it's supposed to, and I'll update this report should anything alter my opinion in the future.
