Mountfield SP533ES 51cm 3.4hp 160cc Self-Propelled Rotary Petrol Lawn Mower
Poor design and quality
Assembly of the "adjustable" handle is tricky due to the poor design.
Once assembled the handle is too flexible.
Leaked petrol from float chamber from first use.
So have the hassle of trying to get a heavy mower into the car to take to a dealer.
Mows well tho' and electric start vital as in common with all mowers the dead mans handle shuts it down each time I empty the grass box

I have only used this mower once. Hence the 3* rating for reliability. I would have to see if it starts well/ works well over a longer period to judge this aspect of the machine. Saying that, it started second time from new and did the job it was supposed to do. It made short work of my 200sqm lawn. The powered drive is a godsend, no more pushing! Two minor criticisms (and they probably apply to all mowers) it does not cut close to the edge of my garden which is surrounded by a fence, and it is hard to manoeuvre round obstacles due to the large wheels. Otherwise an excellent well made product.

Mountfield Key Start Mower
Love this mower. Starts with a key - I can never get the hang of those pull cords! 5 height levels to cut all types of grass. Easy manouverability. Don't complain now when the grass needs cutting - the old professional 36" mower was a different matter!
Fast contact was made to arrange delivery, cost of which was included in purchase price, and delivery was as planned. Very courteous and helpful delivery person.
Excellent machine, and excellent service throughout.
