Great in self-propelled mode but a bit heavy in manual mode
Quality product, no question. A bit heavier than I was expecting (re: maneuverability) in non-driven mode, but I have been using a regular Lawnflight rear roller petrol push-along for the last 20 years. That motor and heavier rear roller obviously add quite a bit of extra weight. Great for doing long straight stretches (even cut, lovely stripes), but not easy in 'tight corners' when you have to resort to "manual mode". Depends what lawn configuration you have I guess, and this 'criticism' probably applies to all 18 inch, rear roller, self propelled mowers. They just aren't designed for mowing around trees, mowing curved lawn edges, etc, so I think I will keep hold of my old mower for doing the "tricky bits" after all!

A first class lawn mower
I recently purchased this lawn mower to replace a 4 year old 17" Honda with rear roller which had started to become impractical as it was getting too heavy, having to negotiate two sets of steps and having to cut 5 lawns each one having their own size and characteristics.

I went to my local lawn mower specialist (Belmont Lawn Mowers in South Normanton, Derbyshire) where I purchased my Honda from.

They were brilliant by offering me sound advise on the good and bad points of each of their mower types.

Eventually I settled for the Mountfield SP465R with rear roller and 18" cut and it looked amazing in Silver and Red.

I took it home and tried it out that same evening and I was amazed at the ease of operation, so much lighter than the Honda and easier to manoeuver considering the extra width of cut........but the best bit was the striped finish which was so much better than the Honda with the contrasting colours of the stripes being very effective but the quality of cut was (is) amazing.

I`ve now been using this mower once or twice a week for a couple of months and it`s still the best lawn mower that I`ve ever had the pleasure of owning.........it`s definitely as good as it looks.

Dependant upon your lawn type I would recommend this lawn mower to anyone.
