- Excellent Unbeatable Service
Excellent Unbeatable Service This is my second mower from MowDirect, the mowers are first class and do what it says in the description. They are delivered quickly and easy to put together. Excellent online shop.
Brilliant I have only cut a little bit of grass due to weather.The engine is very powerful, the lawnmower is so easy to use and a wonderful looking machine, strong and robust build.
The staff at MowDirect are fab. I was looking at a more expensive machine, I explained to the guy why I needed a petrol mower and he suggested I take a look at the reviews for the Oleo-Mac and call them back. I am so far so glad I listened as its exacly what I need.
Thank you MowDirect, a friend of mine had seen it and thought it was £600.00 when I told them and showed them the website he said he was going to get one.
- First Cut Complete
First Cut Complete Chose this model after spending a lot of time researching the various models available. Feels good and sturdy if a bit plastic, which we shouldn't be worried about in this day and age.
Assembly reasonably easy. Instructions straight forward. Added the oil supplied and it started after a few pulls. Not exactly light to pull start, but it's a big engine. Our 12 year old can't pull start it but he could our old Mountfield..
Maybe it'll ease up.
One point - Possibly because it's new - it never starts first pull.. Even when warm, and never starts without choke. However, the cut is fantastic. The capacity of collection bag is fantastic. The big wheels cope well with our paddock like garden. A lot of mole damage, it's no bowling green.
Overall I'm delighted. first cut done first week in February grass looks good already.
PS MowDirect phone support. Delivery etc - very good. Professional advice, put across in a very friendly helpful manner. Thank you.
Poor I purchased this machine mid 2015. I decided to use the mower for a 'season' before doing a review. I have read other reviews with interest. I can't say I agree with a lot of them. You can't compare this machine with the likes of Hondas ect. You get what you pay for.
The engine has always been difficult to start. Even when warm, it still takes several pulls to start up. It is also VERY heavy when pulling the pullcord. You need good arm strength! The mower started to make a noise from the drive chain, which got worse and worse. There is very limited height adjustment on the mower,it could do with more.
Having said all this, it does give a good cut. £300 is cheap for a mower. It if lasts 3/4 years then I guess it's worth it. But you DO get what you pay for!!
FANTASTIC Purchased this machine after our previous "commercial" machine seized. Ordered on a Monday morning and the machine was delivered on Tuesday afternoon BRILLIANT!
Easy to set up and used immediately. Instructions good - assembly easy! Machine is absolutely fantastic. Used it on quiet long grass on the "mulch" setting the it just breezed along and the cut is excellent.
The machine is good to look at and reasonably quiet. The walk speed is perfect and the engine note did not change even in longer grass!!
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone for value and quality.
- MowDirect Have Done it Again, Superb Product
MowDirect Have Done it Again, Superb Product This is an easy to assemble and operate. It has more than enough power to tackle the longest grass with ease. How they sell a mower of this quality at this price I do not know.
- Great Price and Great mower
Great Price and Great mower Assembly straight forward despite instruction manual looking like 'War & Peace'. Starts first time even after sitting for a week, does a perfect job of cutting has a huge grass box & is definitely fuel efficient.
Only a couple of issues to report - keep catching my hand in the top 'clutch?' lever when you pull it back...wear gloves now and absolutely nothing to do with the mower itself.
- Seems a Good Mower
Seems a Good Mower Only used it once and it has tackled my lawn with ease. The only drawback I have is that its drive speed is too slow for me, but overall I am very satisfied.
- Great Mower at a Great Price
Great Mower at a Great Price This machine has exceeded my expectations. Very easy to set up and use with a powerful motor and drive. Starts first time even when hot. I had never heard of Oleo-Mac but really glad I chose this mower.
Delivery and help from MowDirect is second to none!
