Homebuilding Verdict

The Mountfield HP41 Hand Propelled lawnmower is a great and simple petrol mower for medium sized lawns up to around 250m2. Although there is no power on the wheels, meaning you need to push it yourself, it is light to manoeuvre (for a lawnmower) and there are no electric wires to get in the way. The motor also has plenty of power even for slightly longer grass.
