Issue straight from the box

Straight out of the box the front right wheel is basically seized. Added oil and followed instructions and after priming takes 3-4 starts or more to start. Unacceptable for a new mower. Catcher is very very poor quality. Same 140cc as my old Briggs and Stratton but this stops on long grass. Tried to call and obviously a lot of other customers have issues and can't get through.. Sent an email so see if I have any luck. So sorry I bought this. Show details

The only thing Masport about this mower is the badge on the front

Wheels need to have wheel bearings installed $25.00 ASAP as the the cheap solid plastic wheel bush's tighten the equally cheap 8mm (non) lock nuts...The thin steel chassis flexes badly and digs in leaving 1/2 moon furrows if you lift and put it back down whilst cutting for any reason...
AND VERY UNLIKE most newer Briggs and Stratton engines it will be stubborn and hard to start...
Sheesh!...I've got an old dedicated Aluminium base MASPORT mulch mower that has seen 2 x B&S motor transplants and I'm now rebuilding the last 190cc replacement...

The fancy Bunning's 5yr warranty ain't worth it...Keep your receipt and return it as soon as the 2 blades need changing...

Baseplate broke off

When using on lawn the baseplate felloff. Clean brake through cast shaft not steel as it should be. Looks like this mower is one made cheap for bunnings use then take to the tip. Big safety issue could have caused a lot of pain. Show details

Plastic wheel hubs

Had to replace the plastic ones with steel bearings as the wheels were angled in due to worn hubs.
Apart from that it's all good. Show details

Great mower

Purchased this mower from Bunnings Glenorchy, starts first time and cuts fantastic, it’s a wide cutting mower which makes my mowing time even less , spare blades and filters as well as spark plugs are readily available. After owning a few mowers over the years I have found the masport mower the best quality. I love using it so mowing the lawn is now not a real chore, the design of the handle and the simple starting procedure makes my life easier. Thanks masport. Show details ·  2

NOT a mulching mower

Replacing a mower’s catcher with a chute blocker does not turn this mower into a mulching mower! I got better mulch and better mulch spread with my cheap Aldi mower just by not putting on the catcher!
It’s a fair normal mower. Usually starts second pull (my cheap one started on the first pull!). It has a good low cutting height, which is what I needed, and is relatively quiet. But if you’re after a mulching mower, buy something else!

Thanks for your feedback Jack, please discuss the return of your mower with the Bunnings store you purchased from, and don't forget your receipt. Kind regards, The Masport Team.

DANGEROUS!! Serious foot damage. BEWARE

The Base plate that holds the blades sheared completely off due to metal fatigue. Very poor quality metal and fixing. Flew out from under the mower causing serious damage to my wife's foot. I am reading other reviews about the same problem. Masport should be held responsible for allowing these mowers to still be in use.

Great mower but hard to start

Bought from Bunnings a few weeks ago and I have trouble starting when cold. The manual is ambiguous when it says prime 3 pushes and put on choke. It seems to flood the motor. Eventually it starts but not on 1 pull like other reviews Show details

Best Mower I've Owned

I've owned this mower for years now and it still starts the first time every time, 4 pumps of the primer and before you get the cord all the way out the thing is running.
The hard catcher is so much better than the soft ones.
I change the oil, air filter, blades and spark plug every 12 months and it never lets me down on my 600 sqm block. Show details

Be careful not to overfill oil (I thought I was)

Help received from Bunnings
== See update in comments ==
Was cutting out during first use. Leaking oil 3 months later. Mower hardly ever used. Bunnings so far very unhelpful. Their opinion it was a blown gasket. They hadn't even checked the mower. Have left with Bunnings for service. Show details

Day 1 470 masport

1 put oil u bought while you was at bunnings ( same isle as mower DONT FORGET THE OIL SAE 30) about 420 mil wait 1 min, check dipstick , add a little at a time, bottom hole on dipstick is min, top hole is max, do not fill above this or you stuff your motor,
2 put fresh unleaded petrol in it. IMPORTANT 3, if you are using the catcher remove the plastic mulch plate ,( lift back chute , it clicks out). 4 if your grass has been left too long, use highest setting to calm it down .wait 1 or 2 days cut lower. Now ive done that , it works well , Will update if things go pair shaped, Show details

First lasted 3mths, replacement lasted 18mths

Original mower started blowing smoke after a few months, claimed on warranty for replacement, replacement last 18mths before blowing smoke and spluttering also. Bunnings were unsupportive in honouring 5 year warranty, manufacturer disinterested. We were told to take it for assessment at our expense, which we declined. Utter rubbish mower and service. Would never buy Masport again, or purchase mower from Bunnings. Our mowers are fuelled/oiled/operated/stored with care and consideration. Warranty is a false reassurance. This model is not worth $399, fact. Have since purchased from local supplier.

I believe Supercheap auto sell replacement cords. Masport manual will tell you how to replace it.

I am on my 2nd "MASPORT 470" from Bunnings which has 4 blades on a round disk and what a tough little beauty it is but it needs new blades and Bunnings Gladesville had no one in the Lawn Mower section who could advise which of the 5 different Masport replacement blades they stock would be suitable and when asking which Isle such and such is in (which they all know) their little machines could not advise which blades fit the "470"
