This mower is a blot on the previously good name of Masport
The design of this mower is poor. The motor controls (throttle, choke, fuel and ignition are all placed on the side of the motor within easy reach of every bush, stake, tree, shrub etc that you go past in the course of cutting the grass, with consequent unexpected stops or other alterations to the motors running.
It, after only about 5 years in use, is now waiting for the 5th time to be taken for repairs so I can finish cutting my grass.
Undoubtedly the worst quality lawnmower I have ever owned, and that includes the 60 year old second hand Morrison I had for a few years before this one.
This is used on a relatively large suburban section, but level and relatively even.
Purchased at E Hayes, Invercargill New Zealand for A$1,750.00.
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
Questions & Answers
How can I stop the front roller from pushing down the grass so it doesn’t get cut. Is the front roller too low or is this is what happens normally. Could I just remove the front roller?
Hey guys. Looking at getting a cylinder mower. Masport or supaswift?
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.
