SP53 51cm Self Propelled Lawnmower

Product Review (submitted on 14 July 2017):
I have found that the boss which holds the blade breaks very easily and I have bought three, having only used the mower about 15-20 times since buying it. The first one was fair enough, I hit a brick, the second one went on a very average stone and I still have the third one. On trying to have it fixed at my local dealers, I was told there was a three-week waiting time so I bought and fitted them myself. The plastic skirt insert which held one of the screws underneath allowed the screw to break through very easily and not through overtightening in my view. I have since used a self-tapper to hold the plastic skirt insert onto the frame but dread the boss going again. It does seem to me health and safety gone mad. I live in Cornwall and there are stones coming to the surface all the time so it is hard to live with. Other than that it cuts beautifully with a good trustworthy and powerful engine. It also knocked off two or three trims across the lawn with its 51cm cutting span.
