“Rubbish wheels!”

Written on: 25/06/2015 by andrew247 (1 review written)

I have had my HP470 for at least 10 years, but it does not get regular use as I have a ride on for the larger areas of lawn. However, even after a year, or sometimes more, of inactivity, the Briggs and Stratton engine fires up after some fresh fuel and a few pulls of the starter. It is quite capable of cutting trough some tough weeds and undergrowth and well as moderately long grass.

“After 3 summers with the Mountfield HP470, I'm...”

Written on: 14/03/2009

After 3 summers with the Mountfield HP470, I'm heartily sick of it. From the beginning I've had trouble with screws and fittings rattling themselves undone during mowing. I've lost count of the number I've lost in the lawn, and I have to keep stopping during mowing to get the allen key out and tighten things up again as I go along. Surely a lawnmower should be designed not to dismantle itself as it goes along... Also, the design of the wheels is such that grass clippings get caught… Read Full Review
