Mower would be great if the batteries worked properly

Mower is unusable due to faulty battery, and no one can tell me when they can get a replacement. This is second battery, which was very hard to find as model has been discontinued (and first battery didn’t work well for long either). After 3 months, the second, very expensive, battery stopped working. Briggs & Stratton hasn’t yet provided a warranty number to the supplier I returned it to, after 10 days. I now need to hire a lawn mower or buy a new one. My purchase was partly based on the old reputation of victa. But never again. They’ve lost this customer.

Good mower but terrible batteries

Overall good performance, good steel deck, cuts very well, happy with mower hardware BUT not the batteries, one stopped working within warranty period, was replaced with the only working battery among six in stock, next battery died out of warranty but after negotiations I received a replacement after a ten month wait, the week later , the first replacement battery stopped working… it boils down that I have had four batteries in three years, at $400 a pop, this is ridiculous!! The new battery has a five year warranty….I wait in hope…. Show details

End of May and still no battery

Following up from my review of 2 months ago the replacement battery still not here! Mower has been inoperable for more than 4 months. Still no details of when Victa will supply.

Great Mower, a few niggles. Hope the battery lasts

Have had the Mower for 2 years and it does the job on my 800 sqm block. No petrol, nice and quiet. Bulldozing effect of the deck is an issue but I just Mow a little higher.
I have my fingers crossed that the battery or charger don't fail as they are now 2 years old and the replacement cost of the battery is prohibitive at $330 plus. Pointless having a 5 year warranty on the mower when a replacement battery is over half the kit price! Show details

BATTERIES FAIL AND ARE EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE

Whilst the mower gives initial good impressions, the battery failed within 18 months. The Victa 82V batteries are horrendously expensive to replace at over $350 for the lowest capacity 2AH model. So with batteries costing more than half the price of a new mower every 12-18 months, why would you bother? Total Cost of Ownership over 10 years would be appalling. Have gone back to petrol. This is not my first bad experience with short battery life and high replacement costs on power tools and yard equipment. Have had similar experiences with leaf blowers and other power tools. Finding that poor battery life and high battery replacement cost means it's just not worth it. Show details

Poor Performer

When I charged the battery for the first time, it would not fully charge. Even though my grass wasn't too long, the mower struggled cutting, stalling several times and continued to block the catcher shoot. After less than 20min of use the battery died. The battery charged quickly, but it still didn't fully charge. I contacted Victa customer care who were great, they advised me to return the machine to Bunnings where I bought it for either a refund or exchange, as they didn't have any replacement batteries. When I returned the machine to Bunnings, they weren't going to replace it as they said it have to go to an Authorised Victa Dealer. After pointing out that was against consumer law, they refunded me my money. Show details

Very frustrating!

Light and easy to handle. Struggles with my suburban block. Charge only last abut 20 mins and then needs an hour to recharge. Have had to replace the battery twice and the charger once. At present it is standing on the lawn useless as it won't start at all. Not happy. My mower is two years old. I want to go back to petrol. Show details

Great once I modified the machine so that the skirt would not drag on the grass

I was very disappointed in the machine's out-of-the-box ability to cut low enough without the skirt dragging and making it virtually impossible to push. However, by putting 10mm of washers inside the T piece joining the bottom of the motor to the cutting platform and using a 10mm longer bolt I have made the mower into a great machine. Now I can cut very low and the skirt no longer catches.
Basically there is a design fault, but one that is easily rectified - and the outcome is a far better mower.
It doesn't catch lawn cuttings particularly well, but by cutting fairly frequently it is ok to let the cuttings stay on the grass. Show details

Victa 82v, worked fine for 3years, until today, now beeps 3times won’t start.
Fully stripped it down & cleaned any dirt etc, was pretty clean, still no ho just 3 beeps.
Stripped again down to electrical components only, still just 3 beeps. Any one have any ideas what electrical component could be the cause?

Does the 21 inch drag like the 18 inch?

  • It has a charge time of 30 minutes for a 2.0AH battery, and has a run time of up to 45 minutes.
  • A mulching option gives you the option to feed your garden debris back to your lawn, helping to nourish it and get rid of the need to dispose of it elsewhere.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that the push mower was simple to push around their lawn, partly thanks to its lightweightedness.
  • They also found that it was relatively quiet, even for a battery-operated mower.
  • According to reviewers, the mower is energy efficient.

A point of pain:

  • Some reviewers took issue with the lawn mower’s height of cut. Some found that the height adjustment settings were too far apart and should have been closer together to let them cut to their desired length. A few other reviewers found that the lowest blade didn’t cut low enough for them.
