Does not last


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


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


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


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.

Questions & Answers



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?

No answers



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]

What is the correct ratio of oil to fuel? Have bought a second hand one and keep getting it wrong.

Hi.I have the 550 2 stroke Victa motor (around 15 years old now) on my mower. I think the newer versions now have a Briggs and Stratton engine.- the petrol to oil ratio is 25:1. This is usually stamped on the fuel cap on the petrol tank that is strapped to the handles of the mower. Regards, Paul
