Our most popular large steel deck models are high wheeler lawnmowers; the SP535HW V has some excellent features. With a Honda GVC190 4-stroke engine, this is an easy starting, economical, and very quiet machine.
This model is what we call a "high wheeler", as it features rugged 280mm diameter rear wheels, which give the lawnmower a very purposeful look, as well as ensuring a smoother finish, even on more uneven terrain. With a metallic silver, steel cutter deck, which has a wash link for easy cleaning, this mower really looks the part. It is also fitted with a front anti-scalp plate, which ensures a great finish, even at the lowest cutting heights.
Featuring the Mountfield 4-in-1 Combi System gives you the choice of grass collection into the large 70 litre collector, rear and side discharge or an excellent recycled (mulched) finish. A mulching plug is supplied as standard and simply clips onto the back of the mower, to produce a fine finish without collecting the cuttings.
Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time and can make mowing the lawn more than 30% quicker, there is no need to keep emptying clippings. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!”, mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly, and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house, to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas. To mulch just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute, and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.
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.
Naturally, a mower of this specification is self propelled, so it is effortless to use; simply pull the drive lever and away you go, release the lever, and the mower comes to a stop, with quick release folding handles it takes up little space when not in use.
