- Easy to Use
Easy to Use Good mower when you have got used to the clutch.
- Fantastic Machine
Fantastic Machine First, the machine is fantastic, it does more than what it states. The lawn at our front is on a rise of more than 10% or 15% but this machine does the job.
At the delivery, I was one of those unlucky people who had a fault and, though minor, it prevented the machine from moving. Living on an island, there are no engineers, the nearest required £150 for a call out.
The fault, a connection of a microswitch. MowDirect, Mountfield and other suppliers, could not supply direct advice, though polite and very helpful. What was required was a drawing showing where these microswitches were. As it was I found them and connected the loose item.
As I said, fantastic.
- Value for Money
Value for Money Delivered on schedule, the mower was so well wrapped that 15 minutes wasn't really enough to check it over for damage; no problem there, though.
I've been able to put it to work only once so far (weather) and it did all I asked of it. Gear selection and clutch operation are a bit sharp and the steering is a little on the stiff side, but these are minor points and operation should be easier when the mower has seen more use.
Overall, this mower is good value for money. In the past I have used a considerably more expensive and powerful Honda for some years, to keep a Museum's grounds in trim, but for the size of the average large lawn this product is more than adequate.
- Excellent Midway Mower between Walk Behind and Tractor Mower
Excellent Midway Mower between Walk Behind and Tractor Mower Having been used to a bigger Murray tractor mower it took a couple of mows to get the feel of a smaller, lighter machine but I now love it.
Thank you MowDirect for pointing me in the direction of this mower.
- So Far So Good
So Far So Good Great service by MowDirect, quick and efficient. Shame the same couldn't be said of the delivery driver who was downright rude and unhelpful. Such a shame given how good MowDirect were.
I'm still getting used to the mower and changing gears seems awkward (i.e. doesn't easily move through the forward gears and it's pot luck which gear I end up in.)
- Very Good
Very Good Good company to deal with, a very competitive price and free delivery, cant be bad
The machine pretty good, as expected having had Mountfield before. I was always satisfied and sure I will be with this new one. After a few mowings my only complaint is that the clutch is a bit sharp, so be careful if near your greenhouse for first few outings.
- Great Little Mower
Great Little Mower Received the mower as expected all built and ready to go, took me about an hour of playing perfecting the way it works (Now easy) and away I went.
Cuts like a dream and easy to empty. Would recommend anytime
- Very Pleased with Machine
Very Pleased with Machine Delivered and driver was very courteous and gave me a quick overall use of machine. Unfortunately I was perhaps not attentive as I should have been. Anyway used it with no problem and it works extremely well and I am pleased with it.
Clutch a bit sharp but got used to it quickly.Took me a little time to work out the handbrake system and the reverse cut, manual not very good but worked it out with trial and error. Overall very pleased.
- Mountfield 827M Ride on Mower
Mountfield 827M Ride on Mower When my mower was delivered the chap that delivered it was very thorough. He gave me a demo and asked me to try it for myself before he went. He explained everything to me in detail. I also had very good customer telephone support.
Overall I am very happy with everything so far.
- Great Little Machine with Big Capability
Great Little Machine with Big Capability I really like this Machine, it's very easy to use and even cuts in reverse. It has a tight turning circle and cuts right up to the edges. I love the sluice facility for the cutting deck. Just connect the garden hose and start her up, job done.
Comfortable seat and easy to reach controls. My only criticism is the grass catcher, which is great if you want to just reverse up to the corner of the garden and empty on the ground but not so good if you want to bag up and take to the dump.
I overcome this problem by using a small tarp and dropping the cuttings onto it ready for bagging. Overall a great machine for the larger garden.
MowDirect's customer service, communication, attention to detail, help and assistance is absolutely first rate. I would highly recommend them. Thanks MowDirect.
