Lightwieght Petrol Mower - best buy?

Postby Chris » Sun Sep 17, 2006 9:57 pm


I have a six year old heavy and heavy duty petrol rotary mower - but my partner is finding it far too heavy and difficult to use. We need to get a new lighter and lighter duty petrol model - has to be one where you can adjust the height with a single action rather than having to set each wheel separately. What do you reccommend?

Look forward to your ideas

A secondhand Hayter.

Aluminium deck, B&S engine, single handle adjustment on both mine, rough-cut with no pickup Hayterette and roller-equipped picking up Harrier.

I recommend Hayter. I own a 1973 one (from my father),it's easy to use, reliable and when it does need spares (I had to rebuild the carburettor after 30 years use), parts are available.

It also cuts the grass well!
