lauren123's review of Mountfield SP470


“One of the wheels has now come off so often I always...”

Written on: 01/07/2008 by lauren123 (1 review written)

Good Points
Very easy to set up and at the time it seemed like a good all round buy as it was a 'branded' mower and engine.

Bad Points
It seems to be built to a price that is a lot less than i paid for it.

General Comments
One of the wheels has now come off so often I always carry spanners around with me when I mow.
Every time I now mow at least one screw will work its way loose and I get to spend many happy hours rummaging in the garden looking for them.

Its latest trick is to sound like a wailing banshee and cut out while I am mowing. It also has the standard feature of the throttle cable (which i assume must be made out of kryptonite) managing to wear through the high quality plastic.

I decided that maybe a good service would help but the cost of this is around £80 plus any parts that are needed ( bound to be at least 1 or 2).

I wish i had either spent less and not worried about when it doesn't work or spent more and bought one that does work.

Next stop ebay to see if someone else is willing to relieve me of this useless piece of kit.
