The SP555R V is a self-propelled mower, powered by a powerful Honda GCVx 200 OHV Autochoke petrol engine with heavy duty, high torque cone clutch transmission to the rear roller. Stepless speed changes from 3 – 5.1 km/h are possible, and the eight cutting heights combine to ensure any grass situation can be tackled.
The 53cm wide cutting blade makes light work of medium and larger-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 once you have finished your mowing, you can wash the underneath with the integrated washing link situated on top of the deck. 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 mower setting the standard for premium roller mowers and is backed by a five-year extended warranty.
