Fleet Good value for money mower. Not too heavy & the carrying handle is handy. On assembling the handle, one of the square holes wasn't punched right through & the bolt wouldn't go through it. I drilled & filed it out to the right size & all's well. I appreciate others may have had to send it back for such an issue as it would have been impossible to fit the handle.
I'm hoping it'll give me good service for a fair few years to come.
- Very Pleased So Far
Very Pleased So Far Easy to erect, and 'does what it says on the box', as they say. Very happy so far and would recommend buying.
- Mountfield Princess 38
Mountfield Princess 38 A rather lengthy delivery time, but it arrived in the end. Once unpacked, the mower was easy to assemble including the grass box. The first usage on our medium sized lawn with slightly damp grass proved the machine to be a good choice as it dealt with the job efficiently and relatively quietly.
Emptying the generous grass box was easy enough and then a good clean down of the whole mower with a hand brush finished the job.
Only slight minus is there's nowhere to stow the lead when finished.
- Good Value
Good Value I needed a medium sized electric mower for the garden of our new house and my old petrol Mountfield was simply too big. I would have liked to go with a lithium battery unit, but the extra £200 still is too much.
This unit was easy to assemble, except for the grass box which needs a little more care and the plastic to be in the sun for a while to make it softer! It is light to move and stow away with a handle that allows easy storage.
In terms of cutting, the six settings are pretty good but ideally, the lowest setting is just a fraction too low for general lawns and the second setting isn't quite low enough. If you have rough-ish grass, position 2 is fine but for manicured lawns, you need position 1.
If you have let your grass grow a bit, do not expect this machine to cut it all off in one go! My neighbour's grass hadn't been cut this year, (lazy So & So) but I did cut it on setting 6 last Thursday and again on setting 4 today; however, ideally it needs to be at level 2, so maybe next time.
In all this use, I have only used the grass box and not the mulching plug, but once we get the lawn well settled, I will switch to mulching all the time.
- A good all-rounder
A good all-rounder Ordered this mower after a lot of comparisons. I have to applaud the UPS guy who made the delivery - actually went out of his way so we would have it for the weekend! And now about the mower:
1 - I wanted the options to collect and to mulch, with adjustable handle positions so both my wife and I can use it - pass.
2 - I wanted a decent length of cable - 15m is a good length and it stores around the handle frames quite easily.
3 - It had to be reasonably light for both of us to use it - it is although some may say it is a little too light with its plastic deck, wheels, grass box etc. The modern induction motors are much lighter than old styles too.
4 - It is easily manoeuvrable due to its long-handled levers and has a powered rear roller to help it along and provide a directional stripe.
5 - Users have reported the grass box isn't easy to assemble, compared to the rest of the machine that is true, you need to use a bit of careful and well-directed force to get the parts to click together.
6 - And now a bit of a concern: The height adjustment mechanism seems rather weak. I have no problem with it right now but I will be cautious about making adjustments - certainly will want to sit it on a firm level base when doing that.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
