I would def get it if not for my 3.5HP Harrier. (£15.00 off ebay.)

Mine is coming on Thursday - and I think it is the absolute dog's testicles for the price:thumbsup:
#8
Anyone know the brand? Manufacturer of engine? Steel or Aluminium Chassis?
banned#9
Just ordered for £102 using the £13 off code. Looks like a good deal.
#10
£102 delivered :thumbsup: (by using voucher in OP and free delivery on orders over £50 this weekend)
Super price for this self propelled model
Decent sized engine too - often they are 4.5HP or less
Voted hot! ... in fact so good, have some rep too !
#11
Don't forget Quidco meaning an extra £5.87 saving!
#12
Just wait until Mr Brown puts Road tax on motor mowers over 4.5 HP!;-)
#13
hot deal ordered mine coming friday:thumbsup:
#14
Sorry but you will find it's got a cheap (no service place will want to touch it) chinese engine.
Machines like these are made to last the warranty and parts can only be got from the company directly (which can sometimes be an experience) and not any service dealer.

Don't be fooled by the "Professional" tag, it's just the manufacturers name
#15
Bought an electrical one a few years back & wish I took the plunge and bought a petrol model.

Don't know much about power and stuff, but judging by my electrical mower that keeps stalling due to wet grass something powerful will do just fab, no cutting through the cable & no extension leads!

I'll wait for a few more posts before taking the plunge.

Some of these can also be massive so I better check the measurements.
#16
Can some one telll me what the warranty period is?
banned#17
Strange thing is I forgot to go through Quidco but just checked my Quidco account and is showing as validated. Tracked and validated at the pre-sale price of £196.27, so cashback of £5.88. Seriously cheap lawnmower. My present petrol lawnmower was a cheapo make and is almost 20 years old, and has never really let me down. I don't think I have ever changed the oil, never mind checked its level. So I would not worry too much about its durability. In my opinion, If it is going to have a component failure it would be likely to occur fairly soon into its operational life.

#19
Top buy and a great deal. Use Quidco and this is sub £100 try to find a self propelled mower for that!
#20
Most of the repair companies will charge a ton to repair it anyway lol. Keep the blade in good condition and keep it in the shed and it will last as long as you lol. I bought a cheap one from B&Q 3 years ago for £85 and its still as good as new :)...
#21
note to self - need to pay more attention :oops:

bought mine today for delivery Thursday - paid £115 - (damn - pay more attention to the deals)

but did phone tesco points on their freephone number and they put me thru to Tesco Direct (0845) 1yrs warranty and if not totally pleased can return to local store for full refund (minus the fuel of course) :thumbsup:
#22
If it's not a Briggs and Stratton or Honda motor then I wouldn't touch it.

I have a cheapo mower, cost under £100 four years ago and it has a Briggs and Stratton so they needn't be expensive.

Seems cheap for a 48cm mower with 5.5HP but I'm not convinced.

It may be cheap but it certainly isn't tat. It's self propelled too and if you can find anything better at twice the price, you'll be lucky.:p

It's not worth spending a lot of money on a lawnmower unless you are gonna be using it day in, day out.

Most mowers get used once a week for forty or so weeks a year. My current cheapo petrol mower is 15 years old and only needs replacing because rust has taken hold and the blade has gone blunt - but it still works after a fashion and if this hadn't come along I'd still be using it.

In all that time I've changed a spark plug and topped up with oil a couple of times - the only concession to caring for it I make is to stick it in the shed after use.

This mower will probably last for 15 years too so will cost me next to nothing over that time.

Bargain:thumbsup:

Do you not take your blade off and get it sharpened? Or get a new blade?

If, as already been said, this has the cheapo chinese motor then it might be nearer 15 months than fifteen years.

Nope, never taken the blade off - just couldn't be ars*ed. The body is rusting too so I wasn't gonna do anything but wait until it falls to bits then buy a new one - probably at the end of the season when they get sold off cheap.

This has come along at the right time. As for having a "cheapo chinese motor", take a peek inside your PC and see where all the bits are made:p

Voted Hot! Just ordered after losing patience with my Flymo. I've never had a petrol mower before. How does it perform on uneven lawns and how much petrol and oil do you feed it with?
#27
I bought one of these last year in the end of season sale. Didnt even bother assembling it. It went straight back to Tescos for one simple reason, it was utter CR*P. Plastics used were cheap and nasty - sharp edges everywhere (its supposed to cut grass NOT ME!). As for the engine (its not a motor!) the castings where of obviously inferior material, the starting in line was thin, push on petrol pipes (no clips), and the manual translated from chinese by a chimp. The mower was propelled by a band connected to the main shaft. Not a toothed belt, a band!
In the end bought an Oleo Mac from mow direct. 5hp Briggs and Stratton, Self Proppelled, Mulcher, Metal Wheel Bearings (not plastic like this). But then I do have 1000m2 to mow every week. It cost £179.
This is cheap, but why make life more difficult with a poor performing product?

And good luck when you need a replacement Air Filter / Spark Plug / Blade / Clutch etc. Sorry folks, i hope it works well for you, but i believe this to be a false economy.

They work fine on really rough grass and this thing has the power to see off a field!

I really haven't looked after my current one but you should check the oil regularly and top up as required - probably once or twice a season if you only use it weekly. One jerrycan of fuel seems to last me a couple of seasons so it is pretty economical but as this is self-propelled and has a more powerful engine, I reckon the consumption will go up.

But it's hardly gonna break the bank and it has to be cheaper than electricity, although you couldn't get an electric model this powerful anyway!

And Honda aint what they used to be either, according to a friend who repairs such machinery. Also made in china these days, not Japan.

Well, if it's as cra*p as you say, then I'll take it back. But at less than £100 with the voucher and Quidco, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt until I see it:p

Briggs and Stratton also manufacture in China, but they have good quality control and good basic designs. There is also a lot of cheapo stuff being churned out by unknown makers which just isn't up to the job. Ask at a mower service place.

Yes it is cheap, but seriously no way was this ever worth £230! Have a look at there other "professional" garden tools range, all half price, all look of dubious quality, and none of them are worth anywhere near the "original" price. More Argos Challenge quality than Professional quality :)

Well you wouldn't would you:?

But 90% + of your laptop and most other consumer goods that we buy in the West are made of "cheapo chinese" material, so to imply that because a petrol mower's engine is cheap and Chinese it is therefore rubbish would be unfair (combined with more than a bad whiff of racism):p

But that's true of an awful lot of goods, from watches thru to plasma tvs. They are only at their "true" price when the buyer perceives value for money and the higher the value for money rating, the better the bargain. A no-brand 42" plasma with average performance sold for £300 will be a great deal - even though there will be many better sets around at higher prices.

£100 for this mower's spec's is, I believe, good value. If it can't do what I want it to do, for as long as I want it to do it then I will have to re-think but until I see it in the flesh I've got to reserve judgement.

I haven't bought it believing I've saved £100+. I've bought it for the spec's it has at less than £100, which represents a good deal I believe.

I haven't seen a mower of these spec's at the same price - have you?

You can buy branded electricals as well as own label OEM products from supermarkets.

You can buy all the main gaming consoles, big brand TVs, Dell pcs from Tesco etc. etc. etc.

Your post is just plain stupid:p
