Stripes on the lawn are quintessentially British and something most important to us when we chose our Mountfield SP505R. There are a few manufacturers of 'Roller' mowers around, we looked at most of them but kept returning to the Mountfield it's got a very sturdy steel roller on the back, heavy enough to give those pleasing stripes and also stops the machine from going off the edge of the lawn into the flower borders. The engine (a Honda) starts easily and the controls are simple to operate. The four speed transmission offers ground speeds to suit all cutting conditions and the grass collector works extremely well on dry or damp grass. Of course we were swayed by the fact the Mountfield was around £200 cheaper than it's nearest equivalent competitor plus there is a free 20 year anti corrosion warranty on the cutter deck and 5 years on the rest of the machine. It does all we need of it.
