Masport President 6000 AL 3 in 1
I was after a mower to replace a tired old 19" cut popular brand one I have. My block is flat and about 900 sq m. so the self propelled version wasn't important for me, the 21" cut is, though.
I like the alloy deck and the dacron catcher, even though the bag catcher tends to have a limited life when compared to a hard plastic version. This bag catcher is over 60 lts capacity, where Masport's biggest hard catcher is a measly 42 lts, too many trips to the green bin for me.
The engine is very easy to start, hot or cold, one or two pulls see it run...
Plenty of power, easy start.
Only wish I had purchased the self propelled model, as I find it heavy going up the sloping block after a while.
It is a heavy mower to push if you have spongy thick thatched lawn, but by lowering the cut height gradually over
time you can dethatch the lawn as the motor has lots of grunt.
Wide cut, powerful engine, and self-propelled. This thing is a beast.
We purchased a new home in Newcastle last year and moved from our previous house which had an average amount of lawn to mow at the front and few small sections at the rear (terraced area, pool area). The new home is 800 sq m block with house towards the front and lots of lush, established grass at the rear, with a slightly sloping block that fell away towards the bottom (easement).
My wife's dad, on seeing the back yard for the first time, said to me you should look at a self propelled mower. After mowing it for the first time with our old fa...

21" "Push" Mower (i.e. Not Self Propelled) - Just Purchased
Update - 26 November 2018: Just thought I'd write a quick update. So, two weeks shy of 3 years since I wrote the original review below.
1. Mower is still going GREAT. Despite the best intentions to have it serviced regularly, it's been left to work hard with the usual weekly use with little love and maintenance, but keeps on going great.
2. Due to some ill health at one stage the lawns were left for almost 3 months and when the MASPORT dragged out of the garden shed it started after 3 pulls ... and then proceeded to mow the now almost kne...e high lawns with ease. 3. The issue with the wheel tracks is still a bug bear when the lawns a left to grow a bit longer, which I usually do each Winter, but like now, as the summer warm season growth kicks in I lower the mow height and and the more compact lawn does not seem to be as impacted by the wheel racks. So, overall I'd recommend this mower.
Questions & Answers
Anyone had any problems with the masport 800 had it for 6 months but all of a sudden it just stop working tried to start it but couldn’t pull the cord and there was oil coming out of the air filter can you help me out?
Belt has broken twice now is that a common thing with this model??
I have had this mower since new. I bought it when we moved to the new house coming up 2 years ago. It is 800sq m block with plenty of grassed areas and sloping in places. It is thick established buffalo grass so I mow every few weeks. I have only had the belt adjusted at first servicing. Other than that no issues, and no breakages.
