Just purchased one of these for £184.99 at Screwfix. They've been £205 on Amazon for quite some time.

Decent make self propelled Lawnmower. You can get the non-propelled version for £149

And they have a sale on some other machines with up to 33% off

not keen on the plastic deck, prefer the metal as they take more bumps and knocks
Got this last summer at bnq for £185.
Nice for med garden

how does it compare to this one? http://www.toolstation.com/shop/p30543



That one isn't self propelled so you'll have to push it!
Really wouldn't advise getting one of these. Had one for 4 years. Fine first year. Had massive problems with hunting and had to strip the carb every year. I'm looking to replace for next season and wouldn't waste my time with these cheap Mountfield machines again. The non briggs engines are garbage.

How does this compare with Aldi … How does this compare with Aldi dealhttp://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/aldi-briggs-stratton-575ex-self-propelled-petrol-lawnmower-179-99-2409832



​I'd prefer the aldi deal to this with a 3 year warranty and a briggs engine. Mountfield don't care if you get a problem after the 12 month warranty

The mountfield gets very good reviews on both Amazon and Screwfix.
Love my petrol mower but it's got an engine! if you expect to just firer it up year after year without maintenance then buy an electric mower.
Agree with nip styler, had mine 2 years broken down again carb stripped repair bill £48 fingers crossed its ok for a while

Metal corrodes though, especially if you don't clean the underside regularly.

I've had a cheap mower with Tecumseh engine for about 15 years. Never maintained it other than change the oil sometimes (generally I've used car oil, 15w 40 or something). Never changed the spark plug. Never drain the fuel at end of the summer. It has never failed to start, sure takes a couple of spins at the start of the season but once it's going it keeps going. It has one of those rubber "primer" button type carb rather than a choke flap setting you might find on other mowers.
I was going to place an order for this today, but after reading all these comment, it may not be a good idea now....
Any recommendation on a cheap, durable and self-propelled lawnmower WITH Briggs engine? I need one very soon (redoing the lawn at the moment). Thanks.

​Yes, the one that's on the weekly offer at Aldi now.
Have not got a huge garden but not found it difficult to push the petrol mower. About £300 but Honda izzy 16 inch are pretty good.

Likewise, acquired one when we bought our gaff. It has outlasted a Mountfield and Large Hayter both with Briggs engines. Just need to sharpen the blade this year and change the oil. Would happily get another with a Tecumseh engine.

Do you know of any recent models/brands that have one?
