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…..
Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse.
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
Purchased in June 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse.
The catcher that cant catch!!!
After purchasing this machine from bunnings a few months later the catcher had a small split in it and i went back in for them to tell me there was no warranty on the catcher.i felt this was very poor as all i had done was mow the lawndidnt even know how this happened.Then the so called smart chute clip doesn't work so it lets grass come out the back.i now have to use a timber wedge to keep it closed.this has nothing to do with the small split either.I always had a victor which my last one went for ten years and got conned by the man at bunnings that this mower was great.This has a great cut and would be a great product if not for the cheap plastic chute that failed after 2 months so i would advoid purchasing.
TRAUMATIC experience! Not very good.
Second time I used this mower it didn't turn off. I called Masport where the bloke who answered the phone couldn't tell me how to turn it off. Then I was put on hold to talk to the technician. All along I had the high revving mower under my house with small children around. Finally the technician gets on the phone and gets me to flood the engine. Still wouldn't turn off. Then I needed to pull some leaver on the engine - still wouldn't turn off. Then had to get a non-conducting pole or similar to flick the cover off the spark plug.

Questions & Answers
Hi I have a 486 3in1 and was wondering if you could tell me the cut height of each notch on the adjustment mechanism? Cheers
What did Masport say?
where can I buy a mulcher attachment?
Mine was in the box. You might find it already fitted. Once you open up the rear part it’s a semi circle looking piece that wraps around the blades-just makes the cuttings get cut several times by the blades- I find it keeps the dust down too
