This model is what we call a "high wheeler", as it features rugged 280mm diameter rear wheels, which give the lawnmower a very purposeful look, as well as ensuring a smoother finish, even on more uneven terrain.  With a metallic silver, steel cutter deck this mower really looks the part. It is also fitted with a front anti-scalp plate, which ensures a great finish, even at the lowest cutting heights. 

Packed with some exceptional features the SP53 is powered by an easy start Mountfield OM55 OHV (160cc) 4 stroke engine. Easily operated by a single lever, the 51cm/20" deck has a choice of 5 cutting height positions ranging from 27 to 90mm and is ideal for medium - large sized lawns. Clippings can be collected in the large 60 litre collector, or you can choose an excellent recycled (mulched) finish. A mulching plug is supplied as standard and simply clips onto the back of the mower, to produce a fine finish without collecting the cuttings. Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time and can make mowing the lawn more than 30% quicker, there is no need to keep emptying clippings. You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!”, mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly, and not on the lowest setting. Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house, to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas. To mulch just remove the collector, insert the mulching plug into the discharge chute, and replace the collector. To return to collection simply reverse the procedure.simply insert the mulching plug and drive in mulching mode. The engine is very easy to start, with a standard recoil rope system and the handles can be easily folded for convenient storage

This mower is self propelled, so it is effortless to use; simply pull the drive lever and away you go, release the lever, and the mower comes to a stop, with quick release folding handles it takes up little space when not in use.

Great engine
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.
