    Not very happy with this product

    published

    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.

    3 years on and today the differential in the rear rollers has failed so no self drive.
    There are metal bits rolling around inside. What a piece of junk $1800 worth of headaches, never buy one of these they are rubbish

    500 Cylinder Mowers

    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?

    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.

    The split rear roller makes turning easier and avoids “scrubbing” up the grass

    The 10 blades provides more cuts per meter so you get a finer cut

    Yes makes turning easier, however this mower leaves lines in my lawn it really is a very average mower for the price.
