Four year old now , still going as I bought it . Thought I might shout it a new cutter belt. But no I turned it over as it was only worn on one back edge from the idler pulley . Go another 4 years lol.had no electrical or mechanical issues , ever. Amazing machine . Thanks victor.
Purchased in January 2016.
Now 2 years old . Still cuts smooth as silk. Never missed a beat . 349 hrs still original belts and blades . Best deck on any mower in the market .victa finally got it right , why is the model unavailable?? It is a comfortable ride turns on a dime . Best mower I've ever had and had them all cheers
I haven’t been allowed on the mower yet, My wife Faye does most of the mowing, upgraded from a 15 year old Viking ( by Sthil ), Faye’s comments, very neat & tidy cutting, a lot faster than the previous mower( both 42” cut) very manoeuvrable, One tank of fuel will cut our 1 acre block at least 3 times. From my point of view, very well built, fabricated deck is well made & solid, finish is very good all round, Comfotable driving position, only down side but not really an issue, no mulching kit offered with the mower, but the finished cut is that ...good, it doesn’t really matter. Would recommend one of these to any one with an acre up to probably 5 acres, we have fitted a 50 lt spray tank to the mower with pump etc, extra wiring point under the bonnet was very handy for this job

Great for 5 acre property
This mower runs like a dream. Have just done my first ten hours without a hiccup. Easy to drive and suits larger framed humans with it adjustable seat. A area that once took three hours to mow now takes half the time and the welded deck is far superior to the pressed metal on my old Murray. It has a nice tight turning circle and mows in reverse If you look at the specs it pretty much matches the john Deere yard tractor specs But a little cheaper. Well worth the purchase.
Pleasure to mow
Just hums along smooth to drive.it
Cuts perfectly flat for a multi blade deck.deck well made .Cuts so fine I even do my putting greens on my private golf course with the ride on .have had no issues with belts etc I do my own services use top quality oil .blow off mower with a cordless blower .never hose off .Will outlast me .nice Mower love it
Very good mower, well built.
We picked this mower up on Friday, then took it to our undeveloped 2.5 acre block on Saturday. We were mowing through 20 to 20cm long grass without issue. The fabricated deck appears to be well built, and cleared the grass well. The engine, a 25hp Briggs and Stratton, had plenty of grunt and did not appear to struggle anywhere.
What we liked is the mower, except for a few shroud pieces, is all metal. It was also economical on fuel, the 2.5 acres only took approx 1/2 a tank.
I did not expect this quality from this manufacturer. I am hoping that long term ownership is just as rewarding. So far I would reccomend this mower.
Questions & Answers
Our mower has belts coming off any idea what it might be it's only done 2hrs work hardy been used.
Can anyone let me know the full specs for the spx 2548. I am looking to purchase as now a run out model and found great price but I can't get the full specs. It maybe too big for my needs and my small shed. I have 1.5acre block and hilly in sections and lots of trees any help would be greatly appreciated. ROB from Ballarat sent 8 Nov 2019
Hi Rob. you can get the spec on the victa site..What spec do you want ?the overall width with deflector down is about 1600 mm .The length is 1800 mm .sitting butt height is 900 mm . they are a tall unit . 1.5 acres is a small mow for them .i mow about 2.5 acres in a flash. trees no problem as they turn in about 400 mm with great steering. The fabricated deck is strong and to date i`ve had no damage by the odd tree root. i would say its the best machine i`ve ever owned 4years . the deck cuts dead flat not like the rest of the mowers i`ve had . Still running on the original cutter belt, blades and bearings.amazing . Like all mowers just dont hose them down use a air blower . Have fun they they drive and stop on a dime cheers
Thanks Jaktar ... what width would it be with deflector up. Shed door when opened is only 1560 wide. I have about 2500mm deep to play with re front to back in the shed so that will fit ok. I couldn't see the full specs for this model on Victa site only the newer models eg SPX 2348 2342 etc. I am doing a comparison to other brands eg engine type, transmission type, front axle, bearings used in wheels etc etc I just found a spec for a US model "2019 Snapper SPX Series 25/48 (2691453)" maybe very much the same as this Aust model but does say it has been redesigned. Maybe an overkill for 1.5acres but can't find a bad review about it a bit keen to go ahead.
