The Hayter Harrier 48 pro review
When buying a new lawnmower there is always a long winded attempt to research every make on the market to make an informed decision and ensure the best solution for your lawn and your pocket. We have all made the mistake of purchasing the cheaper option only to pay much more in the long run. I can say with my hand on heart that nowhere else is this more relevant than with petrol lawn mowers. I remember the first £100 Hyundai lawn mower I ever bought to maintain an average suburban garden. It was fine to start with but the cheap attachments and accessories soon failed one at a time. The final blow came when the main engine shaft cracked in half when the blade hit a sizable stone. I remember being furious that the mower had cost me £100.00 and couldn’t believe it had died so soon.
If you go across the country to any professional garden maintenance or lawn care companies van and peak inside the sight will always be the same. Almost with 100% predictability there will be a Hayter mower sitting inside proudly. There is no accident that the Hayter mower is the number 1 choice of landscapers across the country. They are quite simply built to last. A powerful engine, robust body and fixtures and fittings make it a true outdoor pioneer. But why would a weekend gardener pay extra for such a mower? It is very simple even though you pay more for with Hayter you are pretty much ensured to have it for a lifetime. The problem with mowers is they are always kept in cold out buildings or damp leaky sheds. Unless you have a robust machine it will eventually die a premature death from damp and neglect. The truth is Hayter’s can live in the extremities of the outside shed and never suffer, they are true beasts of the outdoors. This means no matter what the difference in price to other makes they are always the best value for money in the long run.
This is no less the case with the Hayter Harrier 48 Pro. With its Briggs and Stratton 825 series engine and 8.50ft/lbs of torque this mower can take on the roughest of garden terrain including mulching leaves and twigs. Loved by gardeners and green keepers this mower has a variable speed control allowing you to cut at a speed which suits you and the lawns condition. This new updated specification has a redesigned discharge chute and angled collection box for improved collection in all weather conditions. The ready start engine has a cast iron cylinder sleeve providing added durability, fuel efficiency and overall cleaner for the environment. The full width rear roller means you get a beautifully stripped lawn even in damp conditions. The rear fabric collection box unlike plastic collection boxes allows spent air to travel through meaning less clogs and blockages. With a cutting width of 48cm, self drive, 70 litre collection bag and weighing only 45kg this mower will make cutting your lawn a walk in the park.
The Hayter Harrier 48 pro is an exceptional lawn mower with all the perks of Hayter and more. The adjustable speed control and redesigned grass collection methods means less clogging and spluttering. The collection box is huge allowing less emptying during cuttings saving you time. A make and model that make other mowers inferior and quality that will last you a lifetime.........You know it looks kind of good too!
