Powerfull mower
5 Star Review   By FatRob on B&Q - May 22, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This mower is good quality and does the job. Cuts through long grass very well. Easy to start. Take your time to get the oil level right and re check regularly during first use as oil level drops as it gets spread round the new engine.

So Far, So Good.
5 Star Review   By Queenie7 on B&Q - May 9, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Only used this a couple of times yet. Amazed that it started on the first pull, agree with some of the other people that putting the grass box together was the worst part!! Easy to use, good range of cutting heights.

first one failed to work.(petrol leaks etc.) second one came and worked first time and see no reason why it will not continue to work. the grass box is a bit of a nightmare fitting the two parts together. needs a look at post producction.

BRILLIANT MOWER
5 Star Review   By MAZONKA on B&Q - Apr 8, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Easy to assemble and starts first pull every time. Its very powerful and picks up the grass even when wet, the grass bag is a good size so you spend less time emptying cuttings, all in all much better than I though after reading some or the other revues I am very impressed. I have recommended it to other friends who are looking for a push lawn mower.

Mount field HP454
5 Star Review   By CelticWarrior on B&Q - Mar 20, 2014    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Bought with my 'Senior Discount' for about £179. Very easy to assemble and started on the first pull. Have used it three times so far and it seems quite rugged and has a large grass box. My first impressions are that this has been an excellent purchase. I reserved it online for collection from the Bridgend store and it was ready for collection when I arrived.

Excellent buy!
5 Star Review   By alexthemuso on B&Q - Aug 31, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

I bought this yesterday to replace my very old (about 50!) Atco cylinder which weighs a ton and is a pig to start. Built it from the box in about 15 minutes, filled with oil and petrol and away it went on the second pull. It's really quiet! The grass hadn't been cut for 6 weeks during our holiday so you can imagine what it was like! This mower cut it with ease! I expected the engine to slow down a bit when cutting that depth but no, it was a dream! Only trouble here is that the engine stops as soon as you let go which is a pain when you have to empty the bag. A spring clamp sorted that, just don't put your hand in the outlet! I suppose it's good practice to stop the machine so fair play! Make sure you remove the large yellow plastic thing in the outlet before you start or the cut grass will go everywhere but the collection bag! I believe that was the mulching device but it's not that clear in the instructions. The intrsuctions could be clearer but they are good enough. I went for this model as it's a steel body rather than plastic and as it is light and easy to push I didn't go for the self propelled one. All in all so far a great mower, let's hope it lasts half as long as the old Atco!

Excellent Mower.
5 Star Review   By mjsmke on B&Q - May 4, 2013    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Excellent product! I reserved this online to collect at the dartford store. Is was already on a trolly waiting for me at the tills when i got to the store. Very easy to set up and start the engine. Just cut the grass after 2 weeks of warm/rainy weather so the grass was long. Even with the speed on a medium setting it was effortless to use. The height adjustment is one lever that adjusts the height of all 4 wheels. Mine came with a 140cc OHV45 engine which i think is newer than the 150cc SV35.

Worst purchase ever
1 Star Review   By barlin on B&Q - Aug 27, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This mower has turned out to be the worst one I have ever had.It went wrong in the first 2 months and has kept breaking down constantly ever since. Some of the cables have no adjustment and keep stretching so have had to drill holes in the handles to accommodate.The height lever jumps out of its socket so it is now tied up with string.Nuts and bolts keep vibrating loose.Service centre in Exeter quotes 2 weeks to repair.Struggles to cut grass with 2 weeks growth and clogs up because of a bar running underneath.Engine cuts out on a hot day.

My most recent Mountfield
4 Star Review   By Getlost on B&Q - Aug 21, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

As with previous Mountfields this one starts on 1st or 2nd pull, from hot or cold, the motor runs smoothly and is powerfull enough to cope with quite long grass. The cut is good and I would recommend it as general purpose mower for a medium sized garden.

Mountfield
3 Star Review   By Mktdeeping on B&Q - Jun 3, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

It took about 30 mins to put together (handle needed assembling and fixing to base) my previous mount field was 37 years old and started having overheating problems and would cut out. The new mower is easy to start and picked up the grass cuttings very well. Have only used it once and seems ok but is very cheaply made. I doubt that it will last as long as my previous mountfield. Lots of plastic bits.

HP454
2 Star Review   By bern1963 on B&Q - May 19, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Just to be clear, I've never owned or used a petrol mower before so possibly I was expecting too much. Also I was using it in a new property where the garden is on a slope and I dont know how another mower would fair. I bought it because of the good reviews however I would say its not great unless you have a nice flat well managed lawn to start with. I thought in my youth 150cc was a reasonable engine in a motor bike yet a bit of long grass and the engine stalls. Clumps of grass jam between the ends of the blade and the case. Also something I never considered, the wheels are fairly small and the mower is quite heavy so you only need fairly small dips and ruts and the amount of energy expended pushing the mower along is considerable. I suspect I would have been better off with a lighter eletric mower.

Mountfield HP454 Petrol Rotary Mower
3 Star Review   By Redbaron on B&Q - May 15, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Bought one of these to replace my 27 year old Mountfield that was beginning to show its age (it still goes). Assembled OK, started OK, engine a bit erratic, needed a bit of adjustment of the throttle cable. Plastic pull-cord starter handle broke almost immediately, but Mountfield sent a replacement foc by post next day. Height adjustment a bit tinny compared to the firm handle of the old Mountfield. General build is cheap, plastic wheels, but similar to other brands at the same price. I doubt this will last 27 years, but I'll be 93 and it might be a bit heavy for me then....

5 Star Review   By DogWalker1 on B&Q - Apr 11, 2012    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Collected from store after ordering previous night, staff most helpful as i collected it early next morning. Mower was easy to assemble and after putting oil in and petrol it started on the first pull of the cord. Just one adjustment to the hight setting i was well pleased with the look of my lawn. Turned out to be a worthwhile investment

4 Star Review   By jennywife on B&Q - Oct 8, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This was bought to replace a 4 year old Mountfield HP474 which broke down suddenly. It is very similar. Went together easily, filled with the correct oil and some petrol and with just one pull it started! Hurrah! the cutting heights are different though as the lowest isn't as low as we expected, but is perfect for our slightly undulating lawn. They are adjusted with just one lever as before. Only those with bowling greens for lawns could really want it shorter. or you could add a washer under the blade i suppose... rigid black grass box now whereas it used to collapse and take up less space.

Easy to assemble from the box, Put oil & petrrol in & started first pull. Easy to use & cuts anything. One lever for height adjustment whereas some have one for each wheel?. Starts first time when hot after emptying collection box, which has a large capacity. Extremely satisfied

5 Star Review   By MrGoatsmilk on B&Q - Aug 13, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

I picked this mower up yesterday after returning the TRY3.5SPLMA as it was leaking petrol. Very easy to assemble from taking out of the box to starting takes 30 mins without rushing at all. Takes 0.6 ltr of oil before you put the petrol in and run it. Starts first time and very easily even has a choke and variable speed, no need to prime the carb. Grass was quite long and still only needed the speed on it's slowest engine breezed though it with ease, the height adjustment is a great design as one lever does all 4 wheels at the same time. Nice and light to handle turns and pushes easily. Very well made and the 150cc engine even sounds nice. I would buy this mower again and I would also recommend it to a friend.

OK Mower....
3 Star Review   By sandy2011 on B&Q - Jul 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Purchased this Mower for a few reasons, I have a large garden, my Bosch electric Mower packed out, the reviews seemed ok on the site and its a reputable brand. As per some of the reviews, it is challenging putting this together although im sure someone who enjoys DIY shouldnt have too many problems. I did have to call the customer helpline for help and was surprised they answered the call on a Sunday morning! The Mower stopped working after 10 minutes of first using it and then it took a while to get it to work again. I have used it a few times since then and have realised that its quite expensive to run the mower as you have to purchase the oil and petrol on a regular basis. Overall, I dont think its worth the price I paid for, even with the 15% discount, however I think it would be great for a smaller garden.

Good, but many plastic parts won't last
4 Star Review   By SirPurple on B&Q - Jun 9, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

My dad has had a Mountfield mower for decades. Perhaps he bought one that was relatively more expensive, but this one is of much lower quality than his. I don't expect it to last. However, it's got a wide cut, decent sized box, and has been easy to start. Its first cut was in long grass and it coped very well. The plastic grass box doesn't fit entirely snuggly with the plastic sprung flap, so some bits of grass fly out the top of the box whilst mowing. I hit a large stone, which flew up and knocked the plastic air filter housing clean off. Clipped it straight back on though. I would recommend spending more to get a model with more metal parts (to last longer) and a metal/fabric grass box, which is easier to empty than this solid plastic one.

Great Mower
5 Star Review   By Petrolhead on B&Q - Jun 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This is my third ever petrol mower and the extra few quid spent has proved you get what you pay for. The other two lasted 2-3 years each, with bits falling off, and becoming impossible to start. I almost went back to electric, until I found the Mountfield at B&Q. The HP454 barely needs a pull to start it. I understand I am 'lucky' as I got a 140cc OHV model which is slightly smoother and quieter than the 150cc which is standard with the HP454. I was going to buy the self-propelled model but decided not to, because I have to lift my mower onto a raised area of grass and so the extra weight might have been noticeable. Its very light to push so, can't see I miss the fuction. I think the speed control on this mower is great. I have a piece of turf I've just laid and the slower speed hasn't damaged that grass.The cutting height adjustment is also very easy to operate, and this mower has the lowest cutting height of any in this price range (< £200). I bought mine at one of B&Q's 20% off weekend, and think I have made a very good purchase.

5 Star Review   By Klinger on B&Q - Jun 4, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This is a great buy. It's not the most robust mower Mountfield have ever made but for the price it is wonderful value. Relatively easy to put together despite the poor instructions, the mower started first time and made a terrific job of it's first cut. If all you've ever used before is a hover mower you'll be delighted with how easy this is to push around and also with the close cut it gives. Don't forget to pick up some mower oil when you buy it!

Disappointed!
2 Star Review   By Baldieboy on B&Q - Jun 2, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Probably my fault for not checking properly, but this mower has no speed adjustment as my previous mower had. The engine seems to be running fast all the time, which means that it races away at a really fast pace when it's on self propel. I bought this as I wanted a leisurely self propelled pace for mowing as I'm a Pensioner and can't move as fast as I used to. If you want a work-out, buy this one, if not, maybe go for another make. ................PS, It feels quite flimsy too.

What a great mower!
5 Star Review   By HSmith0477 on B&Q - Apr 26, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

My dad lent us his old Mountfield (still going strong after about 20 years!) which prompted us to buy a similar one, and it hasn't let us down. Easy to assemble (you do need to buy lawnmower oil for about £8 though, as it is not provided) and very simple to use. It smoked slightly on its first outing as it burnt off any paintwork around the engine -- a very normal thing to happen with a brand new item with heated parts, so don't be put off by this! It works fine so just keep using it. We went for this one over the SP as we didn't need the self-propelling element. The HP is more than up to the joba nd it's so quick!

Does the job
4 Star Review   By HampshireDIY on B&Q - Apr 12, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Great value. Started first time, and - although it's early days - I haven't experienced any problems with starting or running it. *** IMPORTANT *** - when you fire up the mower for the very first time after purchase, it will smoke around the exhaust area. It looks like the thing is on fire and is rather worrying, but it is just the paint around the exhaust burning off. Give it 10 minutes and it will have burnt off - that should be an end to the smoke! It's a common "feature" of these Mountfields and should not cause concern. PROS Lightweight, starts easy, cuts well. Easy to change cut height too. CONS Does feel a little flimsy compared to older Mountfields, but then the price is low. The grass box fills up in next to no time too, so you have to stop very frequently to empty it. OVERALL Does the job. I'm not blown away by any particular feature, but it does what it's supposed to and it is a reliable starter. For the price, what more do you need?!

So easy to use!
5 Star Review   By RevP on B&Q - Apr 2, 2011    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

This mower replaces an old petrol mower that needed every muscle in your body to start it. Not this one - it starts like a dream! The height adjustment on the wheels is excellent as it does all four wheels from the same lever. A larger than most grass box means less stopping and starting. Safety cut out handle ideal as we have small children - the mower can't be left running whilst unattended. A great buy, should have done it sooner!

4 Star Review   By Snowdrop on B&Q - Aug 1, 2010    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Bought this just before we moved house, to replace an old electric flymow hover. It has started first time every time and has done exactly what it says on the box, it cuts the grass. The blade has lost a lump where it hit a stone that was buried in the lawn at the 'new' house. It is coping with the very uneven grass and it ALMOST makes it a pleasure to cut the grass.

Good Build Quality
4 Star Review   By kite232 on B&Q - May 2, 2010    ( See more reviews from B&Q )

Replaced 20 year old Mountfield with this model. Good build quality for price, Italian of course. However advertised with a 150 cc engine BUT check because mine has a 140cc engine. With the work I shall give it will be no prob but for heavier grass possibly the extra 10 cc might be valuable. Easy to assemble and certainly easy to start , took two pulls from box and running smoothly. Dislikes, the silly trigger handle one has to hold all the time or engine stops. Might be a health and safety item but have to start engine each time grass box emptied. Height adjustment easy and easy to push along. I have a fairly large lawn and was not as tired as with my old heavy self propelled Mountfield. Would have perhaps liked a little adjustment for handle height. But for the money very happy, certainly with the engine quality.So although given 4 stars really 4.5 would be fairer.

I bought my last Mountfield about 15 years ago - sadly this is not the same quality but still looking at the price this mower is very good value for money. The main assembly instructions are in 20 languages but Italian and english are in a little supplemental booklet. I found the assembly quite easy apart from some diagram about a 'plate in the grassbox' - i found the plate in the grassbox and after much fiddling I concluded that the plate was already fitted in the correct place :-) The engine is not the 'Briggs and Stratton' of my old mower but it still seems to be a fine engine. It starts easily (hot or cold) but you need to take it off choke as soon as it starts otherwise it will cough a bit. Also the main body is in steel - not the aluminium alloy of the more expensive models. Overall a very good mower - easy to use and it does the job very well. Not the highest quality components but very good value for money! Note: There is no engine oil supplied with this mower. You have to buy it :-(
