Description

The Mountfield SP485HW V Lawn Mower is a high wheeled lawnmower powered by the NEW Honda GCVx145 145cc engine. This is an easy starting, economical, and very quiet machine.

Featuring rugged 280mm diameter rear wheels that will ensure a smoother finish, even on more uneven terrain.  With a metallic silver, steel cutter deck, which has a washing link for easy cleaning, this mower really looks the part. It is also fitted with a front anti-scalp plate, which ensures a great finish, even at the lowest cutting heights.

This versatile 4-in-1 machine allows you to collect, mulch, rear discharge and side discharge your clippings depending on your needs. The large grass collector holds 70 litres of cuttings and lifts off the back easily for emptying, an indicator shows when the collector is full. The side discharge chute and mulching plug are both easy to fit. With a 48cm cutting width and 6 heights of cut, ranging from 25mm to 85mm that are easily selected using a centralised button, ensures you can pick the most suitable height for the finish required.

Mulching grass is a great feature, it saves so much time and can make mowing the lawn more than 30{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd} quicker, there is no need to keep emptying clippings.  You may well ask “Will I see the mulched grass?” and the answer is “No!”,  mulched clippings are blown down into the turf and are not noticeable, provided the grass is cut regularly, and not on the lowest setting.  Some owners prefer to collect grass cuttings on areas close to the house, to be certain that children or pets don’t carry them inside, then use the mulching facility on all the other areas.

Mulching the grass allows the clippings to be recycled, improving the soil as they decompose forming a natural fertiliser, high in potash and nitrogen. You will notice a marked improvement in your grass, as this fertiliser takes effect over the course of the cutting season.

Naturally, a mower of this specification is self propelled, but this model also has a variable speed control. Simply move the variable speed lever to adjust the speed to suit you and the conditions. Select the perfect speed to match your walking pace, reduce speed when cutting around flower beds or obstacles. It really makes this model particularly easy to use.

Please use a fuel stabiliser or Aspen fuel with your lawn mower.

WHAT DOES FUEL STABILISER DO?

FUEL STABILISER
Mountfield Universal Fuel Stabiliser contains a carefully balanced formulation based on light hydrocarbon fractions and components specially selected for their performance enhancing properties:

  • Prevents the degradation of fuel – fuel stays fresh for up to 2 years.
  • Protects the fuel against oxidation.Prevents gum and varnish build up.
  • Protects the engine and fuel system parts against rust and corrosion.

WHY DO I NEED TO USE FUEL STABILISER?
Modern petrol now typically contains 5% ethanol. Ethanol readily bonds with atmospheric moisture creating an ethanol-water mix and this oxidisation creates what is known as stale fuel.
As fuel oxidises it can turn to gum and clog jets and other openings in the fuel system. Gummed up carburettors cause serious problems in power equipment such as lawn mowers that see intermittent use or have long periods of storage.

Ethanol blended fuel is also a corrosive substance that can cause the gradual destruction of the metal used in the fuel systems of outdoor power equipment (particularly soft metals such as brass and aluminium). Ethanol also absorbs water, drawing it into the fuel mixture. Water is highly corrosive and when ethanol and water combine it can cause performance problems and fuel system damage.
Good quality fuel stored in an airtight container should stay stable, not oxidise and stay fresh. However the typical fuel tank of a lawn mower isn’t ideal for storing fuel. It isn’t 100% airtight, so fuel will oxidise in the tank, and over time (as little as 30 days) will go stale.

What is Aspen fuel and why do we recommend it?Aspen 4

There are many reasons why people choose to use Aspen in their garden machinery.

All of these benefits contribute to a better all-round experience whilst using your machinery, making your gardening easier and more enjoyable.

The advantages:

  • No expensive repair bills caused by stale fuel
  • Your machine always starts and is ready to go, even after long standstill periods
  • Lasts for years without deterioration
  • Aspen does not contain ethanol
  • Virtually odourless
  • Less maintenance and a longer machine life
  • Available in a conveniently sized container
  • Premixed 2-stroke eliminates the need to mix yourself
  • Easy to select the correct fuel using the coloured cans and coloured reminder stickers on your machine
  • Protects your health and the environment
