“Qualcast ssp 46”

written by 499McCullough on 17/06/2021

Bought from homebase. The fuel primer didn't work so they exchanged it. After unpacking and putting together I eventually got it started and found that the self propulsion didn't work. I drained out the fuel and returned it to the store for my third mower. Unpacked and assembled it. Worked for about ten minutes and then there was a loud metallic noise and the propulsion stopped working. Took it back and got a refund. Ordered a hyundai and hopefully won't have any more issues. I'm starting to get the Impression that self propelled lawn mowers are a bad idea unless you spend a small fortune.

“Worst mower ever”

written by Tombstonewixey on 22/03/2020

Bought new from Homebase 2019. Difficult to start at first, I though just because it was new. Sadly no! This mower will need 25 - 30 pulls on the handle every single time you need to start it. There is a safety bar that has to be held to to allow the engine to run. When released the engine stops. Thus every time you empty the grass box you release the bar and the engine stops. Now you need another 30 pulls on starter to get it going again. And so on and so on. I found a large clip like a clothes peg in my local diy so use that to permanently hold the safety bar to run position so that it keeps going whilst I empty grass box. Now to this year. Get the mower out and half an hour of pulling starter handle it’s still not running. Have put it back in the shed. Wish I had never bought the bloody thing.

“Not to the expected Qualcast quality”

written by on 25/04/2019

Bought the unit from Homebase, fairly easy to assemble, but a lot of play/wobble on the wheels in use. Very poor quality of grass cutting, resulting in a ragged looking finish, poor at picking up the grass clippings whether the grass is dry or not, very poor if the grass has any dampness on it. Carb failed, engine started and ran, but was "hunting", carb replaced with new one, problem persisted. Started leaking fuel in use and in storage. Given it up as a failure and replaced it with a new mower, not Qualcast Wouldn't recommend purchase of this model.

“Dangerous fuel leaker”

written by on 22/02/2019

I bought a Qualcast SPP41 petrol mower and at first I was pleased with it. It was easy to start andcut the grass well. I had only had the mower about 4 months and one morning I found the garage floor soaked with petrol around the mower. The whole petrol tank had emptied on the floor. The whole house stank and thank heavens we are not smokers or a fire could easily result. I took the mower back to an service centre as the mower was under warranty. The agent cleaned out the carburettor and petrol tank and charged me £85 because he would not support a warranty claim as he claimed I had used dirty petrol. There is no petrol tap on the mower and the petrol is gravity feed so a small amount of debris can cause the float valve to leak. The petrol I used came from the same container I have used for many years and I can see no contamination in it. This is beside the point. To have a gravity feed petrol supply with no on/ off tap is an accident waiting to happen. I maintain it is inherently unsafe without a tap so I advise against buying this machine.

“cheep and cheerful”

written by robb955 on 28/12/2015

Have been using this mower now for 3months now and it has performed very well from all aspects. Capable of cutting various lengths grass with relative ease. Starting normally with some priming is easy (hot or cold), as is adjusting the cut level with the one lever operation. The self propelled feature whilst not variable speed is set at a nice walking pace. This mower replaced my previous one which was 15 years old, albeit the Briggs and Stratton engine was still working fine and the engine on this new mower seems livelier and more refined.

“Accident waiting to happen”

written by zephyr550 on 08/03/2015

Purchased this Qualcast Petrol Self-propelled 41cm lawnmower which was 20 percent off from Homebase. Model number XSZ41D. At first glance appeared to be just what we needed. Purchased the SAE30w oil and fuel and filled her ready to go. Started really easy and off we went, clunk, the wheel adjuster failed and sprung out to the lowest cut. Paused the machine and lowered the wheels to lift the body to the highest setting, off we went again, clunk and the lever sprung out of the "gate" and down to the lowest cut setting again. Which scalped the lawn. Time for a closer look. There is only one lever to raise the mower body. The lever construction is just not strong enough to stay in the allocated slots, too flimsy. In the middle setting, the lever didn't even go in the slot. Even on flat ground, the vibrations of the engine popped the lever out and the body collapsed to the lowest setting. Health and safety wise, if someone, had to cross a gravel path to get to another lawn, the lever could pop out and send gravel flying and could cause a nasty accident. Needless to say, had to drain out all the fluids and return to Homebase for a full refund. Excellent service homebase. Qualcast - back to the drawing board - the lever should lock into place with an L-shape to secure.
