Masport 460

Bought it from Bunning 7 years ago. Powerful and rigid. Only taken to service once when starting a bit difficult after 5 years or so. Show details ·  1

Works as it should

Assembly was quick. I love the smooth travel of the throttle. After adding the oil, first pull and it fired.
Cuts well, easy to push, even on dense palmetto lawn. Replacing and attaching the catcher after emptying it requires some jiggling. No issues. Let's see how it holds. Show details

This has been a great mower

I've had the 470 2n1 for about 8 years and it has never missed a beat.
I purchased it from Bunnings , purchased and oil drain kit and service the mower every 12 months.
Drain the oil and fuel , then tip it on it's back change blades , the filter spark plug and then oil. Run for 2-3 mins , check. oil level and top as if needed . Cather and mulch plug are great easy to manoeuvre I have buffalo and couch , medium front and back lawn. This is a great mower. I would purchase another one when this one dies. Show details

Massport Briggs & Stratton 625 EXi

I purchased about 20 months ago after 10yrs with a Honda Mower, I was evident a different machine, lighter, smaller motor down a bit of power in just normal mowing,
After a few uses you could notice missed patches in lawn, noises from machine and if you moved around a tree or kerb, revs would die down and nearly stop. Not sure if fuel sloshed in tank, but this only increased.
I do regret buying and quality, performance and reliability is down. Cost of the mower was not substantial cheaper but the finishing, reliability, machines finishing was Show details

First impressions? Great!

I bought this today and straight out of the box was easily set up, add oil, petrol etc. I've been using a single blade push mower for the last 7 years so the switch out to this 4 blade mower made me cry for the fact I hadn't done it sooner. Put the catcher on and mowed my lawns in easily half the time and half the effort with twice the reward.
OK, it's one mow in and I'll come back in a few months and review but cant' fault first impressions. Easy start, great mow, all round good experience. Show details ·  2

Disappointed to say the least

I’ve had this mower for about 4 years and it has just blown its second engine.

The first time the engine blew it took nearly 5 months to be repaired after Briggs and Stratton did everything within their power to not remedy the problem. The approved repairer said that it was common for Briggs and Stratton to do this and that their customer service was terrible.

Now the second engine has blown I’m not even going to waste my time trying to get it fixed. Show details

Used it commercially, even though its not a commercial mower

When I started my mowing business, I had limited capital available to me. As such, I started by buying a cheapish mower that looked like it would do what I needed it to do. I flogged this machine for about 2 years on overgrown lawns that it probably wasn't designed for, and the only major issues it developed were a blocked air filter, and a blocked carby. Both were relatively easy fixes, though the carby took some fiddling to reinstall. I ended up replacing this machine in early 2020, and gave it to a relative (where it worked in very dusty conditions until the bore ended up scored). I got the machine back, and have recently remotored it with a "Supaswift" branded engine (that is really a Loncin according to my mower mechanic). Show details

Snapped crankshaft. Replaced blades once

Have owned this mower for five years and it has been good value. Until today .
As it started the crankshaft snapped, ummm, bugga!
The catcher is a poor design and has several cracks
It has only worn out one set of blades so I hope the five year engine warranty is honoured….. Show details

Blown Head Gasket after very little use, can't get replacement parts

Bought from Bunnings, always blew a little smoke when starting,.... no it is not overfilled with oil. Now after two years it fills the whole yard with smoke and is impossible to use without breathing equipment. Turns out it has a blown head gasket. The Briggs and Stratton motor used in this model is not sold in the USA. Local mower shops don't want to know me because I bought it at Bunnings. Contacted Masport to find a gasket, they sent the attached email saying I should contact Briggs and Stratton. Briggs and Stratton said contact your local mower shop. Spent hours trying to get the part. Learn from my costly mistake, DON'T BUY A MASPORT MOWER. Show details

Started off ok but is falling to pieces at 18 months old

Functionally ok until plastic rear chute lift up flap began cracking and splitting, now unable to use catcher. Frustrating as it was the only reason we bought it. Have a zero turn ride on for most and just use this for small yard around house. Very disappointed

I’m fussy and this one is really good

Bought this after a lot of research. First off - it’s easy to put together and I was mowing within 20 minutes of opening the box. It’s very light too and easy to manoeuvre. Easy start and it cleans up well. My grass is thick and was wet and it did clog a bit but it was expecting that and the cuttings were really fine. Really happy with this mower and the results. Show details

Great Mow, lousy catch!

I purchased this mower from Bunnings and am pleased with the mower itself. Mower start easily and cuts nicely as long as grass is not too long. If too long it will start to stop and stop if not pulled back or blades lifted higher. I think the catcher is absolute plastic crap, especially considering the cost of the mower. I have been unable to use the catcher and will be contacting Bunnings regarding the correct installation of it as the instructions are as clear as mud! Show details
