Mower falls apart
Apart from the engine, everything on this mower falls apart.
It started with the wheel bearings which had to be replaced, then the catcher, then all the clips on the height adjustment. In all a fantastic Briggs 625 engine that starts first pull every time but as for the rest
The catcher is another thing, it must be the worst ever produced, it has multiple splits and holes which had to be covered up with metal plates on the outside and a rubber lining on the inside.
I would never ever get a Masport again.
Buyer be aware
These mowers were made in NZ a few years ago and now they are made in an Asain country and as reviewers say the wheel bearings are just that....Crap, also the axle assembly is very much the same too.
I have seen many mower contractors steer clear from Masport and gone for something a bit more durable like Victa and Castlegarden I still have the Ryobi and still going strong and has good wheel bearings (still on original set )
Garbage or dud, not sure, not care
This machine is still brand new under warranty. It has been back to the dealer twice, to other motor mechanics 4 times and has managed to mow my meagre lawn the same number of times. It does not ever want to start without stripping down and spray. It never has started, not from day one. It is a pain in the proverbial. It is going to another home very soon. It is crap.
