I always believed that Mountfield represented good quality. Just how wrong can you be ? My SP536ES has got to be the worst piece of machinery I have ever bought. Things keep breaking. In fact when I bought a spare part from a dealer, he asked me how many I wanted ! The drive belt keeps falling off. The brittle plastic belt guard has shattered. The battery compartment has fallen apart. The air filter cover doesn't fit properly, causing it to fall off, leaving the filter bouncing across the lawn. The locating lugs for the blade have broken.
I've only had the damned thing two years. And it's difficult to get spare parts here in France.
The last mower I bought cost me less than £100 over here. I lasted 12 years or more. (and still works), so why did I waste my money on a Mountfield.
