Solid machine

published

Very happy with this mower, cuts cleanly with the catcher and quite well with mulching plug. Motor appears sufficient for suburban block, no issues with power cutting longer grass. Starts easily (2nd pull), and very good on the fuel efficiency. Slightly heavier than expected, but did use a battery powered unit prior.

Powerful good engine, very poor build quality

published

The mower works well. You need to maintain this. However bits just keep falling off, firstly issues with the throttle cable, then the air filter case broke, one of the wheels is at a really weird angle and now the primer button has popped off. Sourcing spare parts is near impossible.

Not good

published

Brought the mower in January 2011. Average mowing time. Mower plastic pulley disintegrated and now needs replacing. Apparently still under warrantee but retailer wants the whole mower. Pulled the machine apart myself and for the sake of $28 will repair myself. Not as good as my old Victa two stroke. Will not buy this Victa again.

Very disappointed

published

Getting on a bit so I decided to get a reliable, self mulching mower. Had good experiences with Victa in the past so I thought the 500 series would be a good buy, Wrong. Have had problems from the start. Had to replace the throttle in the first month. The petrol cap is in a ridiculous position jammed between the cable and the tank. Now the height raising lever has come loose. It was only when I took off the wheel to try and fix it that I realised how badly made the new mowers are. Everything is put together with rivets. Will be buying a new mower but not a Victa.
Nice colour
Badly designed in many ways.

Great for standard suburban yard

published

I have had this unit for a year and it starts first time every time. Its 4 stroke so i dont have to muck around with 2 stroke fuel. I have a normal suburban yard with grass. No dirt no dust just grass and it cuts it great every time either in mulch or catch mode. In summer i mow it once a week so its never really long. Its not noisy as some. I read a comment about the fuel cap and i can see that it could be designed easier to remove as the throttle cable is near the cap but in reality the cap is not a problem to remove.
Reliable, Easy to use, Price is reasonable

it all comes down to the price, I agree with your comments, thats why Honda mowers have done so well by keeping the quality the same

Good

published

Got this mower on special from believe or not harvey norman and I am very pleased with it. It has both multching and catching functions, and 4 blades making for easy quick cutting. The multching function doesn't always give you the best multch but for the price it is a good mower. Easy to start, first go every time and it looks good. Best of all it doesn't send you deaf every time you use it unlike other mowers I have used.
Mulching or Catching, 4 blades for quicker cutting, reasonably quite, 3 year warranty, starts first go.
Multching could be better

You may have over-filled the crankshaft. Empty in until the oil is in the correct margin on the dipstick. Clean the air filter and spark plug. It may need to run for 10 minutes to clear the old oil. If it still blows smoke get it serviced.

Hi Andy,
Your use manual (about page 8 or 9 explains the oil change routine). If you've lost yours, I'm sure it's available online, but failing that go to your nearest dealer/service centre and get a copy. I'm sure that you'll also get some helpful advice from some experienced maintainers at no cost whatsoever. Always read the instructions on the side of the box, and if you can't sort it out - contact the manufacturer. The manufacturer (and supplier) are obliged at law to provide you with the relevant information. Happy mowing!

Drain plug under the cutter disc. Or if you place the mower on a work bench, remove the dipstick, tilt on angle for the oil to drain out, refill once empty, refill with 600ml of SAE30 4 stroke oil.
