Does not last

published

While i was initially happy with the mower, did a great job cutting the grass, it does not last the distance. I am only on 1600sqm and yet the self propel died within 2 years and the whole machine takes manpower to start and even then 20 pulls. As a woman, i just dont have the strength. Ive piad to have it repaired twice before and i wont a third time. A mower that cost 1200 and only last 6 years is a joke. My last victa i innherited from my grandfather and lasted 40 years. Pity you dont make them like you used to victa.

This Machine Grew On Me

published

At first I wasn't that rapped in this mower, but once I had used it several times, and made some adjustments it has now become my favourite mower to use. It does an excellent job of mulching the grass on the spot, and if there is any residue after a pass then you just make a second past after lifting the deck up a few notches and this then gets rid of it, leaving a clean finish. Once you know how to use this mower to it's full capability it's a great machine that is economical to run and can help you make a good income from cutting grass.

Absolute rubbish

published

Does not catch all the grass if the grass is slightly moist gets stuck under the blades so you have to clear it every few minutes. Pain in the butt. Dumps cut grass all over the lawn. You would be better with a whipper snipper

Very Good Mower Except for Terrible Drive System

published

This mower is great when new and mostly great when not so new. However the self drive starts failing after a while. What happens is that the drive on one side will fail so only one wheel is being driven. Once fixed, after a few more hours the same or the other side will fail. And so on and so on.

Victa know about this problem and yet refuse to fix it. And yet the mower is otherwise so good. However if another manufacturer came up with another mower with a decent drive, I would never buy another 550.
Mostly well built.
The drive.

Masterseries Mulchmaster

How many variations in gearboxes have been fitted to the Mulchmaster 560s. Each time I've replaced them each one has been different. Is this an admission that the transmissions have never been fit for purpose to start with.

I am after a Victa MSV 567 self-propelled mower, and have been told to wait until July when a new model or variation is to be released. Can anyone tell me what that is and any changes there will be?

Victa have fitted at least 3 different transmissions to their Mulcchmaster range and none , so far , have solved the problem. Gearboxes are too light duty and only suited to lighter residential mowers. Having replaced all three type boxes in the last 5 years I'm hoping for a better run with the latest type gearbox. Having said that , they are east to replace but at $200 a go it's becoming an expensive proposition. I only persist because the rest of the mower is stillas new and does everything asked of it.

Mulchmaster 560 (MSV566)

Is their a spring that holds the plate with the two little wheels that the belt goes through to provide tension for the speed of the self propelled msv566 Honda slasher mower if you can send a picture of the assembly that would be fantastic [email removed]
