Catcher continually falls off

When the catcher gets full it falls off too easily. No good for professional grass cutting. Have to use a bungy cord to strap it on every time it has to be emptied and put back on.
Terrible design. It needs a lock mechanism. Show details

Big fan.. Very happy

Took it home, started 1st pull. Very easy to start, no primer bulb or choke to worry about. Easy to maneuver round obstacles, eg. trees and taps, it has a strong and robust build, but reasonably lightweight.
And for the price, you can't go wrong.. even get the 1st service free. Show details

It's a Lemon

I purchased the Victa Corvette 300 on the recommendation of my local mower dealer. From the outset the mower always felt under powered for even the lightest lawn cut. After about ten hours total use over approximately two years the machine has developed an internal 'knock' rendering it useless. Only repair solution offered is to replace the motor or buy a new one. Show details

More time getting fixed than mowing

I purchased this SP mower 2 years ago. I have a sloping block and need the self propelled function. In its first year the SP failed and the mower ended up in the workshop for over a month during the busiest mowing period (I only need to mow 6mths p.a so this was 1/6th of its useful time). A year later and the same thing has happened but this time the part took 2 months to be sent to the workshop so 1/3rd of its useful time gone. The mower will be out of warrantee soon and there is no guarantee the problem will not continue. I've brought this to Victa's attention but now the problem is confirmed they have stopped corresponding. Very disappointing. Show details

A very honest product. Never had a problem

With a little bit of after mow maintenance, a quick clean dry of, a tiny bit of WD or similar on springs hinges cable and where ever it’s required an occasional service filters and plugs there is no reason that the mower shouldn’t last you for many years, I’ve had one for many years and it runs like it did the day it was removed from its box. Show details

Best lawn mower I have owned

It’s quiet, powerful and the catcher does the job perfectly, easy to use, great cleaning nozzle and it’s simple to use standard unleaded fuel. Unfortunately the user should not tilt it on its side to clean which means only using the water nozzle Show details

Great, reliable lawn mower

I’ve had my Victa Corvette 300 for nearly 3 years, mowing my 500m2 lawn (slightly bigger than a normal yard) every 2-3 weeks or so. Starts first time every time. Good power (even in wet) only serviced for the first time this week as I knocked the oil dipstick out and it sprayed a bit of oil.

I don’t understand these poor reviews, I can only think they have the model confused.

Don’t think I’ll need to buy again soon, but if I did, I would buy a good mid-range victa again. Show details
