John says out of choice he would go for Mountfield. Briggs & stratton is the key. If B&Q have an offer on go for it. Dont get a self drive one, just a push along petrol.

The old one has an aluminium deck, and it melted in the garage fire, along with most of the rest of it. . The Mountfield has a Honda engine.

what a perfect answer to a sensible question

all i can add is get the strongest one that will last

recon me grans one would have gone "phuuuu that was a bit warm " and been fine in the morning

low teck is good, solid is nice ,both is best

Went for the Mountfield. Started perfectly, and 12 yo was able to drive. So, effortless for me. Coped with the long grass. Hope it lasts.

We've had a Mountfield with B&S engine for 12 years or so, has suffered serious abuse, been serviced once maybe?

This system maybe of interest. I saw it at EcoBuild and was quite impressed with it.

that seems interesting as a method

another consideration is do you need an inspection pit ? cheap if planned in and less unpleasant than flat out under a thing on the flat
