Mountfield have added a new high wheeler lawnmower to their extensive range for 2016. Power is supplied by an easy starting, economical, Honda GVC160 4-stroke engine.

The large 280mm diameter rear wheels will ensure a smoother finish, especially on more uneven terrain.  The silver painted , steel cutter deck is made to the new 'J' design which offers unrivalled rigidity and grass flow. The front anti-scalp plate,  ensures a great finish, even at the lowest cutting heights. 

With a 48cm cutting width and 6 heights of cut that are easily selected using a centralised button, range from 26mm to 87mm. The large 70 liitre collector is easy to attach and has an indicator to show when it is full. . A standard mulching plug  simply clips onto the back of the mower, to produce a perfect finish without collecting the cuttings.

Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser, high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass, as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season.

Power is supplied to the rear wheels of this sturdy mower by a twin pulley variator which supplies effortless forward speed changes

The engine of this machine requires SAE10w30 oil. The engine will be filled prior to delivery, but subsequent oil changes will require 0.6 litres of oil. We suggest that a first oil change is carried out at roughly 10 hours use, then on an annual basis.

We would also suggest that an annual service is carried out.

The engine is designed to run on standard unleaded fuel, but please be aware that this fuel will go stale very quickly so it is best to use fuel that is less than 60 days old or engine problems can occur.

We recommend the use of ASPEN 4 fuel as it will last indefinitely without going stale, so peak performance and starting is always guaranteed. ASPEN 4 is however more expensive than standard petrol but in our opinion it is well worth the added expense.It can be purchased in sealed 5 litre cans from ourselves at the Colaton Raleigh shop.
