Good but dusty
Good strong motor and excellent cutting blades. Only downfall is that with the catcher on it blows grass clippings everywhere. The catcher is not sealed to the cutting deck. Easy to start and the self propelled function feels strong and reliable. With the power of the motor it can cut the lawn quite low without any trouble.

Seems like a great mower
Been some time since I last purchased a new mower so I have been comparing price, power, warranty, features and performance of Masport, Rover and Honda mowers.
Ended up with the Rover Duracut 850 SP with all the features and a 5 year warranty on unit and engine for $629.
Best price and best warranty for the features between the different mowers in my opinion.
First used the Rover Duracut 850 SP to mow our overgrown, undulating 1650 sqm block.
What a great mower - lots of torque to cut through grass taller than the mower itself. Belt drive s...
Questions & Answers
How long does it take you to cut 1600sqm with this unit? And is that based on heavy or light cutting?
Our 1600sqm block has trees and some difficult slopes to mow but generally a No.4 cut takes about 2.0 - 2.5hrs.....varies on how energetic I am....:-))
Hope this helps......
Thanks Robert. I have a smaller 600sqm block. I really wanted to go a bigger unit / 21' and was considering the ProCut 750 priced about $270 more. The price wasn't really a factor as I don't want to be spending all day mowing lawns etc. That unit also has a blade stop, so the engine can keep running whereas this 850SP you have to re-start each time you have to empty the mulch bag. The Procut is a heavy unit. Guessing 60kgs? But I bought the 850SP & will put up a review in due course. I hope I won't regret that. Time will tell! Cheers!
