Victa Ultralite UCS406

4.0 from 1 review

Old fashioned lawnmower from Victa.

We purchased the updated model (UCS407) from Bunnings a few months ago and so far we are happy with it.

Its a lot smaller then your usual petrol lawnmower - and that is a good thing. I don't know what it is but most push mowers these days seem to weigh an absolute ton. This thing by comparison is nice and easy to push around! Bit of a step up from the old Flymo....

The construction seems sturdy enough for such a lightweight mower - not sure how long the fabric catcher is going to last us however. A proper plastic one would have been preferable. I guess they needed to cut costs somewhere and to be fair its a pretty cheap mower. 16 inch cutting deck is not a common size too so hopefully we can get parts easily enough.

It has a 125cc Briggs and Stratton 4 stroke engine which is plenty powerful enough for such a small lawn mower. Starting it is pretty easy too (so far!)

We actually use a ride-on for 95% of the property (a pain-in-the-butt Greenfield), but for the less accessible areas this thing is perfect.

Overall, pretty happy with this mower - its rather nostalgic owning an Australian manufactured piece of lawn equipment and the construction is a throwback to the 80s when all you needed was a small engine, a basic chassis and a pair of blades to cut grass.
