Not very happy with this product
I have used it 4 times and its been back to the shop twice already for warranty repairs. The first time was because the blade does not stop turning when you throttle back to change the catcher, this was modified by the shop and when I got it home it was still doing it. Back it went and they changed the clutch and when I got it home it still is not fixed. Not going to bother taking it back until next service. I won't buy another masport again.
Bought this mower with the expectation Of quality but was very disapponted, for the first 3 months of owning this i was constantly trying to get it to cut level, ended up taking it to a shop and they found it was set correctly and worked out the bed knife is wider than the rear roller so it leaves a lip on both side of every cut, dealership didnt want to help and masport just gave a default reply and sent me the manual wich i obviously had and said to try something that was. Already mentioned that i tried in the email sent to them so be sure to test before you buyn a total waste of $1800
What mowing is all about
Had new lawns laid in zoysia matrella. Bought a massport reel mower as the turf does not cut well with a rotary mower. The results are fantastic. People walking past ask if it's real turf. The mower starts every time (Honda engine) and does a great job. Important to keep the reel to bed plate adjustment right. Don't do as the shop that sold the mower to me said and leave that to them for its yearly service. It needs adjustment as per the Massport handbook every couple of months or so. All in all very pleased with the product. Buy the way, it's self-propelled not a push mower.
I'm extremely happy with this reel mower. Gives a fantastic cut, starts first time every time. I have the larger Honda motor so cannot comment on the Briggs and Stratton motor. Has the split roller which makes it easy to turn on the spot. Very easy to operate and i am glad i bought a new mower.
Questions & Answers
what is the advantage of a split front roller as against full steel roller? and what is the advantage of a 10 blade as against a 6 blade reel? My use is for maintaining a croquet green.
