The SP505R V is a self-propelled mower, powered by the reliable and powerful Honda GCVx 170 OHV Autochoke petrol engine and heavy duty, high torque cone clutch transmission to the rear roller. Stepless speed changes from 3 – 4.9km/h are possible, and the eight cutting heights combine to ensure any grass situation can be tackled.
The 48cm wide cutting blade makes light work of medium-sized lawns, and the Mountfield Twinclip blade system ensures a superb cut. The system has four cutting edges – the first cutting edge reduces the initial length of grass with the second cutting edge reducing the finished length down to the desired height. The fact that the clippings are finer than in other systems results in the collection capacity effectively being increased by 20%. And with the grass bag being a whopping 80-litres, it all means more mowing time.
The mower is also durable – a galvanised steel and aluminium chassis sees to that. And when everything is finished, a single click folds the handlebars down to one of three positions to ensure maximum use of shed or garage space.
This is a superb roller mower and is backed by a five-year extended warranty
