Great mower

published

I bought this mower when my old 2 stroke victa died. I’m much happier with a 4 stroke. I really love not having to have to mix oil and fuel anymore and I love the power the 4 strokes have. I find it’s a lot easier to start than my old one too.

Good engine, but that is all

published

Reliable Briggs and Stratton engine but wheels stick out too far preventing getting close to edges, fabric catcher is ridiculously small and us falling apart. Buyers remors: I wouldn't buy this product again and suspect I will have to replace it next summer because the catcher will fall apart by then.

Best in the business

published

Victa's legendary quality and reliability lives on. 12 years of solid mowing 800-1000 square metre blocks week in week out and it hasn't missed a beat. Base plate rusted out so I bought a Honda Buffalo, that Mower was rubbish so I sold it on Gumtree and went back to the Victa. Only disappointment is a rusted out base, Victa should go back to the alloy deck. Don't mess with a classic

Victa, what are you doing?

published

Terrible. 1st, the sump was cracked when purchased, so all the oil I put in before starting ended up all over my garage floor over night. Fixed under warranty. Then finally I got to use it. The catcher didn't seal properly around the rear discharge gate. About a 1cm gap meant that it was more like a sugar cane harvester than a mower with catcher. Within 5 metres of cutting, me and my Victa were cover in grass and dirt. Yes, the catcher vents were open. Victa rep told me that was just the way they are!!! Ohh how I love my $199 Rover purchased 10 years ago. Why I ever thought I needed an upgrade?

Not happy with the engine's carberation system

published

I wish I hadn't bought this model. Mower is ok but the fuel system on the engine is terrible.
I have had a lot of good experiences with Briggs and Stratton motors on mowers in the past but this engine only just works.
Note; I might just have a lemon or a problem of a very individual nature. I'm yet to find out. I may never find out.
I'm not inclined to send it back to where I bought it, it's just too far away.

Vista Hawk!!!!!

published

Not a bad little mower! I've got a medium sized yard, after a quick blade sharpen, this model does quite a neat job!!!!!! Easy to handle and easy to start. Has a large enough catcher to be able rot cover a fair bit of ground.......Low maintenance and good on fuel!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good little Mower, easy to operate, some what at the budget end of mowers but ok for its price. not a lot of power / rev range if needed but if you want something easy to run and not too difficult lawn this is the one..

18 months on and still running as good as new, very low maintenance, keep the blades sharp and you'll never have a problem. Uses hardly any oil, keep it clean and it'll last a lifetime.....Its a Victa !!!!!!!

Hi

I see you posted your question on 8 Feb, but I received notification of it on 14 Feb...

I personally find the mower easy to start. I rarely ever have to pull the starter more than one time to get the mower started, even after it has been left outside for the winter and not started in a few months.

The engine is made by Briggs & Stratton and is the same model engine that my previous mower (that I used for 14 years and only threw out because the deck rusted away) had. Interestingly, there are some differences in the engines, the previous mower engine was even easier to start, used less petrol, ran more smoothly and used less oil.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a 4 stroke Victa Hawk. Extremely reliable machine.
Keep the oil topped up, sharpen the blades regularly and keep it clean after use. It will last a lifetime !!
