Advice needed on New petrol mower.

Good evening all, I am currently looking for advice on a new mower.

I have been looking at a couple of models and would just like some feed back/input.

 Honda HRG 536 VK 

Mountfield SP555V 

I currently have a mountfield sp180 which has served me well but am looking to upgrade.

Many thanks.

    I used to have my own gardening business and used nothing but Hondas ( sometimes 6 hours a day )  with never a complaint. 

  • I must admit I'm leaning towards the Honda, I guess I'm just looking for reassurance. Thank you.

    I think it depends how much grass you have, if like Hostafan you are using it all day then you will never beat the Honda but if like me you only use it for maybe 30 minutes a week something cheaper will do. I have a Qualcast cost £95 this is my 4th year and it's perfect for what I do.  

  • The area to be cut is 65x35m, so I would be looking for a mower with a larger cutting area, half of this is also on a slope.

    I have a Honda Easistart. Great mower.
