How old is the fuel you are using? It goes off, the fuel in mine is twelve months old and it is running rough, fire first time on choke but when hot it still needs a little choke to restart it. I am a bit bit tight so I'll carry on as there is at least a pounds worth of petrol left.

This is an excellent machine I bbought it second hans a couple of years ago and have have had only a couple of breakdowns ie belt springs cables fraying and the uasual gearwheels breaking. However I have had quite a problem with starting ie it nearly pulls my shoulder out when I try to pull the starter my wike has to put her foot on the roller otherwise I lift it off the floor.However it does start after a few pulls. I was wondering if anyone can give me some advise on how to solve this… Read Full Review

“Good mower - built to a price but still does a good job”

Written on: 10/06/2011

This is a great machine for the money. Mine is a few years old now and has taken some punishment. Engine speed 'hunts' but suspect a full service will fix that - It has only ever had two oil changes and is still using original air filter and spark plug. I have needed two pink cogs so far but these are very cheap and designed to break to save the rest of the machine. Both times mine were wrecked by running over things that weren't supposed to be cut(a dog bone and a stone). - You need to keep… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2011

I got the 35s Cylinder lawn mower in 2005. Also got the scarifier at the same time. Great little machine. Starts by the second or third pull. Never let me down. After SIX years of ownership I have only just had to replace the PINK plastic cog. Cost of said cog £7.25. Job sorted. I mow lawns for a living on machines MUCH larger than this. So maybe it's not the fault of the mower, but the person who uses it… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2010

I agree with then previous review that the pink cog is useless. I have to replace it every year. I had not problems for the first few years but I am fairly certain that I had a white cog then, albeit still plastic. Anyway, it has gotten to the point where I have actually been considering manufacturing cogs of my own. The aluminium ring that the cog runs against is not great either. The question is: Most other petrol cylinder mowers bear a striking resemblance to the Qualcast 35s so if I… Read Full Review

Atco/Qualcast all one company Owned these days by Bosch so they have alot of common parts.

Klippo part of Husqvarna different group.

Pink plastic gear is the fail safe in the drive line and will give some protection to the cylinder and bottom blade, look for cause of failure - debris on lawn, height of cut, length of grass being cut and condtion of cylinder and blades, "set" of cylinder to bottom blade can all lead to premature failure of the drive gear.

“The makers of this machine are absolute geniuses. ”

Written on: 13/05/2010

The makers of this machine are absolute geniuses.

Let me explain why, you may think what you have just shelled 300+ quid for is a lawn mower...oh it certainly looks, feels, smells and even if you are lucky for five minutes acts like a lawnmower too. You then after covering the distance of what say an olympic standard hedgehog would do in a minute, realise that it is infact a money printing machine for qualcast.

Why?

Because inside it is a cog, an infernal pink cog, that is made up of the… Read Full Review

The petrol qualcast lawnmower range is for the conasouir of garden enthusiasts, I am no expert in the garden but have a general knowledge like most. I have a petrol 5 year old Qualcast 35s with the Techumsi engine, it has performed outstandingly until I put some 6 week old fuel through it and now it splutters only at cutting throttle, ok at tick over. Have ideas to rectify the problem but would like to say that the Qualcast range is ment for people who want the garden to stand out and who have… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2009 by motorbikesforever (2 reviews written)

The Qualcast Classic Petrol 35S is very easy to start, cut really nice also. The two lever operation to start blades and then start mower moving can be fiddley at first but soon becomes second nature. Mine is a second hand model and is probably five years old judging by my father in laws who has a newer but similar model.
Compared to my previous Suffolk Super Punch which is twenty plus years at least it's a major leap forward in technology… Read Full Review

sounds like you should do a little exploring, have just bought one second hand and it's a beaut! No leaks really easy to start and runs like a dream. It's probably a stuck non return valve or similar. Good luck .
