my petrol mower just died on me,shame i'm skint at the moment this is a bargain

Thanks OP. Mine is on its last legs/wheels.

Cheers OP! Really need a new one.

If its anything like the one in store it will have the "OHV" engine, which seems to pop up a lot on the cheaper mowers.

Either way I've ordered, as I'm sick & tired of having to mess around with my petrol flymo...

OHV = overhead valve was pioneered by Honda then copied to death by the chinese who made it cheaply. Its actually a very good design and superior to the "normal" lawnmower engine (valve at inclined angle to cylinder). OHV are quieter and more effiecent than standard engines but normally heavier and slightly more expensive to make. And cheap Briggs engines are now no better than there chinese counterpart. The best engines are still Honda but you will pay for the privelage, briggs 650 up are not bad either.

I think the self-propelled has the metal deck as it is much heavier than the push model and also might have the 135cc Engine, the both models seem to share one discription........... not good from Tesco:(

problem comes if you have to return it - youll have to pray you can empty it - i bought a petrol mower from argos a few years back, power devil i think - wouldnt work and the idiots had tighten the petrol bleed value so tight it was welded shut. had a hell of a time trying to return it, argos were bang out of order - bought a honda instead and has been perfect for 5.5 years, not cheap but worth it

guess for 75 its worth a gamble

whatabody

nope but a decent petrol lawn mower will cost £350+, i have a honda izy which is now an eye watering £550 (paid £320 on offer 5 years ago) but is worth it, so on that basis at £75 i guess its worth a gamble but you could have alot of hassle trying to start it and there is no way itll be a brand name engine

petrol garden tools that dont start are a right pain - i have a ryobi strimmer which has been used less than a dozen times in 2 years and its packed up - i wouldnt buy another ryobi / cheap petrol power tool again - ill stick to honda/stihl/husqvarna

agree for the home honda engined ones are the best, mine has been used about 30 times a year for 5.5 years, about 1-2 hours each time and starts 1st time every time - cuts through anything too even grass 3 feet high (wouldnt recommend leaving grass that long though lol). its quick too, my two electric lawnmowers took 3 times as long to do a 1/10th as a good a job

some of the reviews on tesco are hit and miss, i own a petrol strimmer from tesco and it has worked fine for 3 years, think i paid £30 i wanted a decent mower but i can't justify the price for my 100 sqm garden, i have used an electric for 5 years and its hard work pushing it if the grass is damp.... but i do understand you about you get what you pay for

nice deal for a self propelled mower, pity about the engine size, would buy it if it had a 148cc engine as i need something with a bit more power for my work.

Just as well I didn't see this a couple of weeks ago - my trusty mower packed in and I ended up replacing the carb for only £15
heat added - it would have to be absolute pants not to be worth the money.

agreed, my gardens arent big though i guess about 100x20, 50x20, 60x35, 50x25 and a few smaller patches - one pass cuts the grass no matter how long lol so for me its worth it - i paid a reasonable 320.00 for my honda izy 5 years ago and its worth it - its the self propelled one thats now a silly 550.00ish - id think twice as thats alot of money

just checked the honda site and you can get a push honda izy for 315 (says 350), plus £75 cashback - so £240 for a honda izy - wow

or a self propelled one for 405 (says £450) plus £75 cashback - so £330 for a honda izy self propelled - id snap that up in an instant!!

theyll last years, or take the gamble on the tesco one - ive had a cheap petrol one and a honda and id go for the honda even though its alot more. depends how much you want to spend

honda.co.uk/gar…SD/ self prop
honda.co.uk/gar…PD/ push (also which best buy 2011 for those that care)

cheaper elsewhere too, so with cashback a honda izy for as low as £200

cahsback is available until 14th july!

mentions you need to go in store though...hmm

10 years ago I purchased a Mountfield lawnmower from B&Q with a B&S engine, Its still running strong, I paid £140 for it then. As long as you maintain it, it will last for a long time. The only time the problem occurs is when fuel is left in the tank over winter, this lets of chemicals which deteriorate the diaphragm, which is a rubber gasket between the petrol tank and the carburettor. When the diaphragm deteriorates the mower can fail to start or run poorly and smoke. The diaphragm only costs a couple of quid from e-bay or any lawnmower shop and is a 15 min job to replace, plenty videos on youtube.

Well I got a B&Q petrol one about 6 years ago, less than £100, Briggs engine, always started, never had to do any maintenance on it. Still going very strong.

With the current price, you could buy 4 of these lawnmowers now for the price of your Honda! I think that says it all! People who buy things just so they can say "I bought a XXXX lawnmower' either have more money than sense or are in debt !!

I got the same one from Argos i think, a yellow one. It started to cut out now and then, changed the plug and it didnt work again so put the old plug back in and i used it for another 2 years. Usually starts first time too. I am going to retire my mower and have ordered this one.

tempted by this

can you adjust the height of the mower? or does it only cut one length?

Cutting width?

One of the people that bought this mower says that the engine capacity is 98.5cc and not 135cc. That seems rather small for a self-propelled mower. He also says that it’s difficult to start and his wife can’t start it.

..or perhaps they care about the environment and not sending countless lawnmowers into landfill?!
