Waste of money

Purchased Jan 2019 two months later back at shop as it would not start. Told air filter was oil blocked. Cleaned and apparently running OK. Two mows later same thing so cleaned air filter myself. Ran ok but again a couple of mows later nothing. Filter cleaned but now would not run when cold unless primer bulb continually pumped until running temp achieved. Starting has become ever more difficult and now given up trying. Going into rubbish collection and I will buy a new electric mower. Old Rover mower 25+ years old and never missed a beat and in fact never ever changed the spark plug just 3 blades. Show details

Like the performance

I still own an old Victa 2-stroke since 2003 this unit just does not break , but it was time to upgrade.

I like this new mower, it has a 550EX Briggs & Stratton engine.
The engine runs well with a good consistent rpm and power. it really does a fine job

It does rattle though and from brand new within the motor , It does this under more grass load but it is not impinging operation nor is it defective.
Perhaps if some Victa rep is reading these , perhaps advise me on that one please

The noise is less than my older 2 stroke which is surprising but they are different engine makes and operation.

Used quite alot

we've had our pace a few years USA engine not Chinese don't touch the Chinese ones if your motor does go it's only $180 dollars worth replacing the engine our one cut 16 hectares now on its 3 Rd engine it is now only for the house yard as we bought 2 ride ons for the big areas and if you have a dusty yard settle the dust with hose first to prevent dust from getting into the mower and you won't have problems

Do Not Buy

Bought a victa pace 100 in December 2018 from Harvey Norman for $480. Recently started making a rattle noise in the engine , not running properly. Still under warranty. Called Harvey Norman and was told to take it to a Briggs and Stratton mower dealer to have it looked at . Took it to the mower shop and was told couldn't fix the problem because the bearing in the engine was worn due to dust intake. Was told not covered by warranty even though it's barely 14months old. Followed all the service instructions in the manual and still this happens. Poor filter quality in the mower and now I need to buy another mower. I have always owned victa mowers ever since I can remember, really dissappointed in the company. Show details

not as good as they say

I purchased this mower as it was well priced but soon realised that the expression "you get what you pay for" is true.it really seams very heavy and hard to move around especially on thick grass.i was also told buy the salesman that the engine makers are highly respected for building great engines but mine is very hard to start.

anyhow.

Eats , mulches and leaves

I'm no a fan of Briggs and Stratton engines. Typical rubbish American engineering ( refer to Falcon and Commodore). However, I've had this mower for nearly two years and its a tough little beauty. . Long and thick cooche grass doesn't stand a chance. This little red baron consistantly punishes and slices that green pest with little effort. Very easy to start, no nonsense fuel priming required and it can mulch grass to perfection. The mower is very light to manoeuvre as well. Great price too !!

Victa all the way

I didn't realise the importance of purchasing a decent brand name mower until I bought this model. I had a budget lawnmower that was bought because it was the cheapest. I struggled around the lawn and had to mow area's twice. My yard is on a large slope and the weight and easy maneuverability makes mowing much easier now.

Excellent

I purchased this mower to replace my old beetle. I recently moved onto a large, multi level block and this mower powers across the lawn like a dozer on dirt. The multi adjustable settings make negotiating my block a breeze and the blades are ninja sharp. Champion mower, will mow again 9/10.

Legendary Victa, classic style Mower you can't go wrong

Replaced my rusted out Victa Hawk with a Pace, same classic Victa style Mower.

Awesome mower, doesn't have the four blade disc like the Hawk but it doesn't seem to affect the quality of the cut. Runs perfectly, is light and easy to manoeuvre and transport.

My only complaint is the paint peels off the deck easily, Victa should've kept the alloy base of the old school mowers. Never buy a mower from Bunnings only from a Victa dealer. These guys know their stuff.

Victa Pace Catch & Mulch 18"

We have had this mower for 12months now and love it, it has the mulch attachement which great and handle buffalo lawn really well, it is the biggest engine (550 series) Victa make on an 18" mower, but is really light and easy to use. It is just great and my wife loves it too, as it is not heavy and easy to start. Purchased from HarveyNorman asked for better price and got it for $430.
Great on buffalo, great on bush grass and weeds.
The fuel cap can be a bit tricky to put on, as the throttle cable runs to close to the lid. Show reply

WHY did VICTA put a MOWER on the AUSTRALIAN MARKET with the AIR FILTER Intake at such a Low Level behind the Left Front Wheel given the Climate, Conditions and Environment we operate under. OR is this just a Briggs and Stratton BOLT-ON Deal and strait to the Market (Without and REAL R&D ......) Look at the Old 2-stroke Models and their Aircleaner Set-Up and location (High and SAFE on the Handle Bars ... ) GRAEME SMITH - NARRABRI NSW - AUSTRALIA RE: VICTA PACE 400 / 19" - B/S 675 EXi

Hi, is there a high zone filter available to retro fit to the mower? I live in a dusty area it would be great if there was one available so i didnt have to stop halfway and clean out the filter.
