Disappointed WAIT - FIRST REVIEW

I opted for a Mountfield because my parents had one and it was robust and reliable. This model was not. Firstly, the delivery wasn’t the next day, it took close to two weeks.

Assembly was fairly straightforward however it feels very flimsy and light due to the heavy usage of plastic.

The cutting height lever is so flimsy it’s a joke and constantly fails to drops down to the shortest cut which is a real pain. Even when warm it takes up to 8 pulls to start the engine. I’ve used it once and I’m returning it. I wouldn’t have this machine even if it was free!

Excellent ordering & delivery service from MowDirect.

I was influenced by the 'Mountfield' brand. Price seems to be competitive. Assembly is pretty easy and was achieved without much use of the lengthy instructions.

I do think Mountfield could issue simpler instructions in English on one piece of paper for those who need them, make the grass box easier to assemble and perhaps make the handle height adjustable. Also, attaching the handle is a bit fiddly with the Allen key. The inclusion of a bottle of oil was a big plus..

Reading the reviews, I'm not sure everyone realises you need to press the pre-start button to prime the engine - it then starts first time every time.

I'm very satisfied with the Mountfield mower, it replaces a 'Wolf' machine which was finally scrapped after too many faults developed over 10 years!

I wanted to buy a self-propelled mower for my new house which has medium-sized lawned gardens. I was aware of Mountfield as a quality lawnmower manufacturer.

This special edition model is superb. The feel is of a robust, well engineered mower. It starts easily and the motor is superbly powerful for the job. The mowing result is a nice evenly cut lawn with no scraping and with a 45cm deck, it takes no time at all to complete the job.

I have only had this machine a week. It cuts the grass really well. I was slightly disappointed on the second time of using it that it had stopped. I had to wait for the engine to cool and it eventually started again. I will see what happens next time, I'm hoping its just a blip.

Mower arrived quickly by courier. Easy to assemble. Oil supplied - very good. Simple to operate. Easy "cut length" setting - one lever.

Certainly powerful enough for duty, I used it on way overgrown (10 inch) grass (wet also - ughh!) and it gradually chowed through it, lots of grass container changes required though. Once grass cut to normal length the mower worked fine. I have two garden lawns, quite large - very suitable for this duty. I would recommend this product.

Excellent Price, Easyish Assembly, Prompt Start, Good Cut

Excellent Price, Easyish Assembly, Prompt Start, Good Cut
Review by Julian Sellars / (Posted on 20/06/2017)
I had a Mountfield HP164 which was excellent for several years but died last week. At 79, I decided I need a Self-Propelled mower for my neat middle sized lawn. I did my homework, re price, reviews etc of several makes and chose a Mountfield SP180 from MowDirect. £100 under list price, ordered on a Saturday, delivered Tuesday am.

Manuals are confusing and generic, in 28 languages, so assembly was a bit slow at 45 minutes; provision of oil was greatly appreciated; 0.44 litre to full. Engine fired on third pull, then on first pull.
Mowed lawn on second highest setting, pace manageable stripe OK; I quickly learned to de-clutch a yard before turning

Altogether I am delighted; excellent value for money, I would recommend it.

Overall very satisfied. It does what it says on the tin. However, I did find that the change from manual to automatic running is a bit fierce, but no doubt I will get accustomed to it

Badly Designed

This is my first Mountfield and to be honest I am not that impressed, built quality seems good although there are no instructions on putting the grass collector together which is fiddly if you don't have young hands.

It starts well it cuts short grass well but who cuts short grass? My lawn is about 20 by 20 foot my previous mower needed to be emptied twice this one requires five times. If the grass is longish the grass cuttings start to come out on the rear wheels. Also if the grass is damp or again longer than two inches it will clog up and stop. My old mower had no problems but was slightly more powerful.

Now to the ridiculous design flaw. To empty the grass collector you have to lift the flap with one hand and manoeuvre the collector under the handle. The old mower was a one handed operation and easy.

As you have probably guessed I would not buy this model again.

However the positive over my old mower is the weight makes it a lot easier to manoeuvre and one of my considerations when buying. Also it's easier to start but it's new so long term who knows. But the extra work involved in keep emptying it and raking the lawn after cutting means it's going on eBay after the summer and I will purchase another lawn mower.

If your lawn is about 10 foot square and you like to mow it every week this is probably a good buy for you. Any bigger it's not worth the hassle.
