The best garden machine I’ve purchased

Top machine well done Rover , would have liked to have catcher to make it even more
Effective , but the mulch kit seems to work well . Would recommend for sure .

Keeps running erratic after 10 minutes and finally stops wait 10 minutes then OK for 10 minutes and does same again
Put another fuel tank up higher and good filter and 8mm fuel hose tank is at the rear and problem solved. And drained fuel bowl All to do with gravity fuel feed

Near new keeps stopping
So is mine. 15hrs use and it's now popping, backfiring, surging then stops. Driving me mad. Mows for 2 minutes then stops. Have flushed fuel. Cleaned tank. Check cap vent, changed plugs, changed coil, changed fuel filter....about to trade this piece of crap

I love mowing again
Good mower, just what my 1.5 acre yard needed.
Surprised at how well it handled even the worst grass (long and thick) that hadn’t been mowed in years.
Some talk about not being able to mow over undulating areas, it will, but you have to position the mower correctly, you will get wheel spin if turning over bumps or hitting them at the wrong angle.
I see mention of not being able to cut in reverse, my Mini Rider Hydro 382/30 allows you to turn off that safety feature.
Ease of use
Being able to turn some of those features off

Great Mini Ride on But...
I purchased my Rover auto model mini ride on to cut grass around our home about 2 months ago. I live on about 1.5 acres in a rural setting with some moderate slopes. I only have two problems with it and that is you cant wash the mower after mowing and cooled down...it won't start again..and, being suto, you can't push them even using the by-pass lever..I dare you to push it any distance..lol. Anyway, it goes well, cuts well, and mine is fitted with the rear catcher which works surprisingly well, as long as the grass is not wet. Then, it just clogs the shute and you have to manually remove the grass to unclog. But good mower for the price. Hope this helps make your choice..happy hunting..price $3k in Brisbane southside.

Down on power especially in reverse, otherwise a good product.
My Rover Mini Rider Hydro is now around 3 years old - purchased from KC Machinery Co in Lismore NSW 2480. I mow a 780m2 mixed grass block, which is mainly on the level - but also have a 20degree tilted council nature-strip to the road that cannot be mowed by the MIni for safety reasons - [well over 11 degrees.] Have to use my self-propelled Rover 'Personal Pace' for that task. Cuts in reverse and this is a bonus. The M/Rider is quite able to "jump" a 5" path with cutter off/highest deck setting for the front lawn . It will also just fit through...our front gate! Power in reverse is poor even on gentle slopes/paving stone edges. Turning circle is good. I can mow this block x3 times on one fill of 95octane fuel and a bit to spare. Fuel tank "window" is handy. First servicing was relatively expensive at around $340, including $50 for transport around 2km back/forward to this dealer in South Lismore. Overall a good product and not over-priced. The foot-brake is difficult to use as it is too high - needs to be on before being able to start. Reverse/Forward pedal better designed. Recommended for light duty/back-yard use. [Note: I weigh 100Kg - this mover definitely needs a V-twin engine for more power on reverse operation.]
Purchased in October 2017.

Best buy I have made in a decade
I bought the Hydo model and it has taken all the effort out of mowing many of the yards I manage. I mulch and you have to be sure the deck isn't too low or it won't "vanish" the clippings into the grass. Also you have to keep the speed down or it simply won't mow all the grass but miss bits. These are inherent limitations and not negative points. All in all I'm very impressed, especially with the 860mm wide wheel base that goes through even the smallest of gates. The 5 year warranty ads peace of mind.
Questions & Answers
Just bought this mower. Its mowing on an angle. Left side lower than the right. Dont know how to adjust the plate height.
After checking my oil level I forgot to put lid back on resulting in the oil spilling out. Can't find manual how much oil do I need to put in to bring it up to level required.
There will still be some oil still in the engine so it will be best to put a little in at a time and check the oil level on the dip stick each time. Continue until oil level is between low and high mark on dip stick.
Thankyou Nick. As the oil has sprayed up everywhere how long should I wait before refilling it. (I have wiped as much oil off that I can see.
has anyone had problems withhydro transmission with no drive or reverse suspect brake problem
