Leaked all of it's oil and stopped working

Brand new, followed all setup instructions to the letter.
It struggled with any grass over ankle height.
Lots of rattling and shaking.
Leaked out all of it's oil within a few minutes and then stopped working.
For $400 you'd expect a lot more, not to mention a product that actually works.
I'd highly recommend buying a different brand.

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $400.

Reasonable lawn mower for the average yard

This is a typical example of a brand-name product built to a budget. The deck is great and powdercoated for longevity and the Briggs and Stratton motor is solid, so long as you replace the oil at least once a year (along with the blades).

The pushbar and the wheels are clearly where the budget cuts were. The metal used on the bar feels weak and flimsy, as do the cheapo hard plastic wheels.

That being said, this mower has served me since 2015 and shows no signs of slowing down. Towards the end of the year I am looking at upgrading to a ~$800 mower with a bigger motor and quality parts all over.

For the average yard this mower will work just fine. Enjoy your purchase!

Great mid range mower

To all regarding, purchased a 50th silver vitca v144 in last 6mths..easy assembly, no problems really to address except that the handle is offset and looks that it needs to be pushed 3inchs to the right and the main surport bracket bolts work loose but otherwise it works great..strong, starts easy, pushers nice..is worked in light commercial use and would willing to buy again..mulch plug is great..just wash out and clean at end of jobs..great work vitca.. Show details

Get what you pay for

I’ve had mine for 6 or 7 years now and it’s still going strong thought I killed it 3 years ago so I gave her a little tlc and she come good again for almost $500 I’ve got what I paid for and then some. Easy to operate my kids even use it obviously not as good as the old Victa I used growing up but it ain’t that bad either Show details

Good price

Overall not a bad mower could do with a little more power but seeing as we mow our lawn really low with just the mulcher on it does get the job done quite well while mowing our really thick buffalo grass in some areas.

1 con I’ve noticed is it’s not very good with wet/damp grass have to go a fair bit slower. Show details

Works fantastic. But any lawnmower should little built in lawn eager. With a leaver. Be great. Show details

Decent

This is a good mower for the average lawn plenty of power for the fortnight lawn cut.
140cc is about all you need.
Picked one up for $399 hasn't missed a beat for the last 2 years. Show details

Dip stock falls out

Bought it today and tried straight away. Everything was fine except the dip stock fell out easily with some oil splashing onto the motor. This is the design fault. Terrible. I will take it back to Bunnings for refund but it’s a hassle!!! Show details

Very Disappointed

Wanted a mower to replace my Masport. Bought this because it came with a mulcher plug, might as well not have. Cannot mulch grass to save itself, leaves a trail of grass clipping behind you. Also the primer bulb does not work, so makes it very hard to start. No wonder this model has now been superseded. Will have to be a very good deal for me to buy another Victa. They used to be good once. Show details

Disppointing

I have owned Victa mowers all my life but admittedly 2 stroke.
This is quiet as 4 stroke but underpowered and doesn't collect grass cuttings into the catcher at all well. The mouth of catcher is not wide enough and grass builds up at entrance then leaves lines of cut grass when catcher not full.
Constantly having to go back and over again to get all cuttings. Seems cheaply made for Bunnings. Chinese? Show details

Victa classic cut mower and mulcher

Started well
Had it for couple of years
The mulcher has broken I don't know if that's my fault
It fills up the catcher fast so your emptying it alot
Starts every time first go usually
Has a strong motor and cuts well
I'm happy with the machine Show details

Chinese quality

Got one from Bunnings. Can’t cut real low. Can’t go through thick/long grass not powerful enough. Leaves a pile of grass each time you change the catcher. Just feels poor quality. Pluses - starts easily,and because it’s made of light weight/cheap materials is easy to lift over the retaining wall. I just bought a Victa cause the last one was good. Had the Briggs and Stratton motor. Same price for the new one. Increased the profit by saving on production costs. Will try another brand next time or even get a second hand Victa back when they were good. And yes second hand mowers are a gamble but at least you have a small chance of getting a good one Show details

My 2-year-old Victa Classic Cut 18-Inch (Petrol) lawnmower has excess engine oil, which is causing leaks and smoke. How can I safely remove the excess engine oil?

Is this the same Victa Classic cut lawn mower – 18th anniversary edition that the ACCC has warned to take back for a recall? Apparently operating models built between 1 Nov 2022 and 28 Feb 2023 could cause debris to break through the plastic case of the grass catcher
