This ride on has literally changed our lives - before, cutting the 0.5 acre lawn took over 3 hours - now its no more than 30mins.
The 827H starts with ease, once warmed up the cutting blades engage with a satisfying clunk. The cutting height is easily adjusted from the seat, as is emptying the huge grass box.
Sadly Mountfield discontinued the trailer hitch for this mower, but I found one on the web and modified it (the bolt holes are still on the chassis for this mower) - with a trailer we now have a powerful solution to carting soil, kids, camping stuff etc up to the end of our garden.
MowDirect - thank you for making our purchase simple - the delivery driver BTW was fantastic, helpful and courteous.
