Simple, rugged, reliable if u learn how to use it.


I have many different mowers. I am a contractor. The 460 Victa fills a gap as a lightweight easy to manoeuvre and rugged mower. The two stroke is rugged and reliable but needs to be operated in a certain way. Always use 25:1, always shake the fuel tank or can before use, always shut off the fuel tap and leave the motor running for 20-30 seconds before shutting off, always leave the fuel tap off when not in use, turn on fuel tap and press primer 3 times before starting, immediately move lever to run but let it run for a minute before mowing. Had them for years. Beautiful mower if u treat them properly.

Had one of these for a few years. Used as a back up mower for my 550's. Reliable, light, easy to use. I mow a 2 acre block and found this filled in nicely when my 550 was in for a service or work. I would recommend these mowers to anyone on a suburban block.
light, starts easy.

Brand new mower purchased, used for 10 mins, then it broke!!?


The bracket that goes from the height adjustment to the front wheel - it came away from the front wheel and had only used it for 10 minutes!!??
Light-weight, otherwise don't know - only used 10 mins before it broke!
Doesn't seem to be strong enough to last until its first service?!

That happend to me as well!





This is far and away the best small engine product I have bought. If I ever needed a new mower, I would buy the same one again.
After three years of total abuse it keeps on cutting...
Bought because I tend to break everything I buy though hard use and this one is tougher than I can dish out. Rough ground, thick overgrown grass - it does the lot with no whinging. I have the Victa 2-stroke engine with the 3l tank - can mow the whole acre twice without needing to refill.
It has never broken down so I have never gotten out of mowing...
