Offering bagging; rear-discharge; mulching; and side-discharge as standard, the fantastically well-equipped Mountfield HW531-PD is flexible enough to cope with a wide variety of grass-types and weather conditions.
Power comes from a STIGA ST 170 four-stroke engine that has a substantial 166cc cylinder displacement, and which does away with the conventional side-valve arrangement in favour of an overhead-valve one. This means a marked reduction in noise; vibration; exhaust emissions; and fuel consumption.
The Mountfield HW531-PD 4-in-1 Self-Propelled Lawn Mower has power-driven rear-wheels, so it’s particularly suited to gardens with banks and tussocky, undulating areas sections to deal with. The drive wheels are far larger than the front wheels for greater traction and improved manoeuvrability.
Thanks to its generous 53cm width-of-cut, this premium model will enable you to get even larger-scale jobs done in quick-time.
It benefits from having six preset cutting-heights, so you can choose the one that will deliver the finish you prefer (adjustment is via a single lever); and it’s fitted with a quick-release collapsible handlebar that ensures it will occupy very little space when not in use.
Other stand-out features include an anti-scalp plate that works to prevent turf damage when using the lowest cutting-height; and an all-steel cutter-deck for impressive strength and durability.

Upgrade from Previous Mountfield Mower

Upgrade from Previous Mountfield MowerReview by Kevin Weaver / (Posted on 10/05/2020)This lawnmower has been excellent from the day I bought it. After starting on the first pull it's been easy to use and is a huge upgrade over my previous Mountfield.
I did have a slight issue with the metal handle for controlling the drive mechanism: I knocked into a tree whilst mowing and the metal bar popped out of its socket. This has been sorted by bending and widening the bar slightly to make it tighter in its mount. I did this by hand and it hasn't popped out since.
Apart from that my main criticism would be a lack of in-depth paper instructions for assembly and use. I'm guessing these could be found online, but once I had it I was too eager to get mowing, so put it together using some common sense and the pictures online. However it was easy to assemble, but some more detail and advice on how to use the various accessories would have been appreciated.
All in all this is a fantastic bit of kit for the price. It'll do everything I need for my medium sized lawn in half the time of my older, 39cm wide mountfield, and having mulching as an option is great. Very impressed so far.

Mountfield HW531Review by Janet Holmes / (Posted on 06/05/2020)Good machine but did find hoselock feature very effective. Would have preferred better instruction book not very clear. Had to wait for oil being delivered before it could be used due to Covid 19 lockdown . Machine started first go and cut the grass easily. Would recommend.

Excellent for my rough lawn!Review by Marion Plunkett / (Posted on 25/04/2020)Needed a mower that could handle the rough terrain of my orchard. So far, this one has been perfect. Easy to start, big box, easy to manoeuvre. My last Mountfield lasted 20 years, only the body let it down, the engine (Honda) good as ever. Had to watch the Lawnmower man on YouTube to assemble. The instructions flummoxed me but once watched I assembled it easily in my own.
