Excellent quality lawnmower,and powerful!
Excellent quality lawnmower that is so comfortable to use,has more than enough power with the 150cc 625exi Briggs and Stratton.
I use it on level 5 height adjustment on quite lush/thick lawn and it doesn't bog down at all it just feels nice all round.
As with any purchase a lawnmower is an investment treat it right and service it and it will last a long time.
The President series are the flagship of Masport and so far I'm impressed with my purchase.
It's Not A Mower, It's A Dust Thrower
Paid $700 brand new ($799 RRP) for a machine that just throws dust all over the place, whether using mulcher or grass catcher. Adjusting cutting height lower or higher doesn't help. Would only buy this model to cut a bowling or golf green. Model is ST S19 Combo InStart. Does start well, uses very little fuel (as I'm only mowing areas of longer grass) and runs quietly. Difficult to clean.
Purchased new 2 months ago on recommendation from mower shop, replacing 15 yo flymo.
Have done 5 hours so far on dry, relatively sparse (pasture grass) lawn. started leaking oil almost straight away and does not cut as well as the old flymo. In addition the whole body shakes slightly as if the rotating assembly is poorly balanced. Mower shop are going to replace leaking gasket and 'have a look' at shaking issue (after i have taken it back to them 50 km away)
on the positive side it is light (compared to honda) and has good handle design, is quiet and good on fuel.
This mower is a replacement for a 30 year old rover with a Briggs and Stratton engine, the first thing this mower is quiet and so much better on fuel, it doesn't rev very high however cuts the grass well. I love the easy storage handlebars and dual mow zones
Perfect mower for my 800 M yard
Got a new Masport mower today and used it for the first time. Its the 3000 ST S19 combo. Its light and easy to maneuver and cuts close to edges on both sides of the deck. Used the mulching plate for the entire yard and it was a pleasure not having having to empty a catcher. The yard looked as good as if the catcher had been used. Very happy with it.
Great mower for the price
President 3000 aluminium deck with Briggs and Stratton 625EX.
Had this mower for 6 months, I really wanted a Honda but for double the money I couldn't convince myself. The masport is supposed to start second pull (first pull primes the engine) but mine often starts first go on a long pull!
The deck is well made and I can't see any problem with the wheel bearings, mine needed slight adjustment after a first use but since hen haven't moved. This mower is lightweight compared to others which is rest as I have to lift it up retaining Walls. ...The catcher is strong and the height adjust very sturdy. When mulching it performs well. In comparison my old victa would blow leaves away, this one sucks them in from outside the cutting deck. Overall very happy.
Look for a better option.
Had our mower for just under 4 years now, recently had it serviced by the dealer we bought it from. Sadly I'm getting the impression I have a dud. The chassis broke in two places and the rail across the back also broke. Also all the bearings needed replacing, as the wheels were about to fall off. Considering one of the reasons we brought it from the sales pitch:"proper wheel bearings, not just plastic wheels, so would last longer". I don't think I'm hard on a mower, currently only mowing our verge (nature strip) and a neighbours. Think I'll be looking for a stronger style chassis and mower in general in the near future.
Was simple to use and easy to start.
Proper wheel bearings "broke" and chassis cracked twice.
