Cheap and cheerful. Need i say more.
Flimsy construction. Be prepared for regular servicing and breakages i.e plastic handles, engine casings, govenor cables etc
As a landscaper, I have frequently purchased Mountfield mowers, including the SP470. They are cheap and you get what you pay for. We use them constantly for about 2-3 years until they are fit for spares or a skip! Reliable engines and relatively cheap parts (dont go to B&Q- a waste of time).
