Ramirezhk386's review of Hayter Harrier 48

“Very poor all round”


written by Ramirezhk386 on 04/07/2021

I have owned this unit for a little over a year now and it came recommended. The facts tell a different story.
1. The autodrive is way too fast. Even on the slowest speed you need to be an olympic athlete to keep up with it.
2. The grass collection is truly shocking.
3. The split roller corrodes on to the shaft meaning it very soon becomes a single roller.
5. The blade brake design could use a lot of refinement. It doesn't release properly when engaging the drive which means the engine stalls half the time when engaging the blade.
6. The overall component quality is very poor. The engine itself is fine, but everything bolted to it is cheap.
Personally I would never recommend this to anyone, not even my worst enemy. For the price they charge for these things it is not unreasonable to expect better, a lot better.
Buy a Honda if you want the best. That's what I have done now and this hateful thing can go on EBAY.
Hayter customer care is poor too. If you dare complain about these things they refer to you a dealer, who then tells you to buy something else. That about says it all.
