I have just moved house and to a bigger garden. Unfortunately my old flymo is not up to the job. I would like to but a petrol self propelled lawnmower. Having a look about mountfield seem a good brand, has anyone got any experience of them or another other model? Looking to spend up to �250.00

Second question, I presume you need petrol and oil? Are they any special brand I need to fill up with?

Many thanks

On my 2nd Mountfield, first one gave up after a number of years of great service so just bought a 2nd one. Never had any bother with either of them.
There is a specific oil you will need, which your supplier should have - I got mine at B&Q. As for petrol, unleaded runs fine.

Hope this helps
There is a problem with Mountfield's inasmuch that they use different manufacturer's engines. In my experience the only engine worth having from them is a Briggs & Stratton. However, I changed to Honda a while back and it is much better - easier and certain start, no loss of power over time, and with an overhead cam shaft altogether better.
Yes Mountfield are good,but look up Champion recomended by Which magazine as a cheaper alternative.Greenfly
We have an acre of lawn and have a lawn tractor. However
I prefer to use the faithfull Honda. They cost a bit more but they outperform the competition.
