- Its a Lawnmower
Its a Lawnmower Even the Village Idiot can assemble this in two minutes flat. Add oil (not included!) fill with petrol, turn over once and I'm mowing the grass.
All of the garden gnomes love it, and the fairies that live in the shed at the bottom of the garden say that the electric start is so much easier than the recoil start if they need to run the engine in order to keep warm. Would have been nice to have a selection of different colours to choose from and to have a smiley face like a Henry Hoover.
Oh, if you drive through your pond it does not work, so perhaps an optional snorkel fitting might be a useful feature
Keep smiling in your garden.

- Well Engineered and Good Value
Well Engineered and Good Value The mower was delivered within 24 hours of purchase and arrived in good order. It is relatively easy to assemble and seems well built if a little heavy to handle. This might be a problem but for it being self-propelled thus providing help with movement. It would have been nice to be able to engage the drive without the cutting blades turning but, alas, this feature is absent.
As other users have said, the commencement of the mower drive is sudden and it's quite speedy once on the move. The absence of a throttle control doesn't help here. Also missing is a reverse gear so turning the mower is more difficult than I would have preferred.
For the record, it took an e-mail and 2 phone calls to get the retailer to make good on their promise to supply the mower with a bottle of engine oil. However, they eventually came good on this.
Overall, it seems to be a well-engineered product which represents good value.
- Great Machine - Very Happy
Great Machine - Very Happy Very happy, the machine cuts very well, the drive is at exactly my walking pace.
I marked down on assembly because I had to flick between pages in the manual to find bits. The packaging was badly bashed, I told MowDirect but when I had assembled the machine, everything was there and completely undamaged.
I gave the machine one pull on the cord to get the oil moved around and then started it with the first twist of the key
- Great Mower
Great Mower Turned up on time, very easy to put together (except the ignition key start, not very well illustrated or explained in the instructions).
The mower cuts very well and is easy to start.
- Great Price
Great Price Really wish I bought this a couple of years ago. Easy assembly. Starts the first time. Done my lawns in half the time it normally takes me without even breaking out in a sweat.
Highly recommend this to anyone who wants an easy life
- So Far So Good
So Far So Good Assembly was okay but I can see some might struggle a bit. It's so much easier to start with the key than the old Einhell machine we have. Looks well put together.
Runs well and does the job. So far so good
- Excellent Value for Money
Excellent Value for Money Delivered as promised, straight forward assembly. Started first time with electric start and readily starts with recoil starter. Care needed when folding down the handle as the cables tend to bind.
Overall very pleased with this mower.
- Great - easy start, rapid take-off, on the heavy side
Great - easy start, rapid take-off, on the heavy side Not delivered when advised, so when it showed up on the Bank Holiday it took me by surprise. My brother came over and put it together as I have only one working arm, instructions not great, but the only 'issue' was where the cables needed to be positioned to allow folding of the handle.
Having ordered it as the only option that suited my requirements I am very pleased with it. Takes off like a race-horse, and has a bit of a kick, so don't advise trying to push the self-propulsion handle with your stomach/hip. Gave a nice cut in very good time and on pretty long uneven, and some damp, grass. My only difficulty is turning it, but as most people can use both arms, I doubt this will be a big deal for most.
I'd rather be able to afford a ride-on, but the big collection bag is excellent - hard to believe that what used to mean 4-6 lots of emptying in my old electric was done in one! Serious bonus on both work/arm effort, and time. Very pleased with my decision to buy this, my only problem now is my brother trying to pinch it and convince me I need a rechargeable!
