Mountfield SP533 51cm 3.41hp 160cc Self-Propelled Rotary Petrol Lawn Mower
Good mower but had to go back
I got the mower in April and had used it maybe 5 times on our 90ft garden around 5 times between then and august. The cut is fantastic and it is happy going through some long grass. The box is pretty big. I have no complains about the performance of the mower, however on the 5th use I noticed that the blade had become loose. on further investigation, the housing that the bolt holding the blade goes into was cracked. Screwfix were fantastic about returning the mower and (although this web page says that they have it in stock) I was told it wasn't in stock in store or the warehouse for delivery they refunded me in full. I asked the guy behind the counter if they had any other mountfields in for returns and he said they hadn't so it may just be that I had a duff. Not sure whether to go for another mountfield or not but will buy through screwfix if I can as they were so good at dealing with the return (they even emailed me the receipt that I couldn't find)!

Having done a fair bit of research into my first petrol mower I settled on this. Strong engine and rigid frame make this a proper tool for the job. Only made a few cuts with it but exactly what I was looking for.
Well pleased. Assembly was easy (which was a good job as instructions weren't brilliant).
Would definitely recommend with the usual screwfix ease of delivery etc.

Free delivery to Isle of Man ! Delivered within 36 hours which is great. Up and running within 15 mins, started first time. You have to use choke to start even when warm, but no drama. As previous reviewers have said slightly on heavy side but is easy to use on my 50x30 yd undulating lawn. Why did I not get one earlier, bliss to use. Glad i stuck to mountfield rather other less robust makes. With 3 year warranty too.
