The first noticeable feature is that for a big 21" (530mm) mower it's very easy to maneuver around your yard and gardens. This has a lot to do with the 3 speed gear box fitted to this mower. The gear box is a shaft drive, oil filled, alloy case with all metal internal gears. This gear box is built to last and withstand the hard treatment dished out by contractors and property owners alike. With a low speed of 3.06kph you will be able to get around garden beds, trees and hedges with ease. When you get out to the open spaces and need to get the job done quickly you can choose 3rd speed and go at 4.6kph. Second speed is a good in-between speed to cut and mulch for those of us who don't want or need to run after our mower. You will very quickly come to appreciate and love the comfort grip and adjustable top handles, no matter how tall or short you are, the handles will always be at the correct position for you the operator. A few reasons why this mower is so easy to use is that it has large 200 x 50mm wheels plus dual wheel bearings fitted to the front and rear. This mower also features metal rims which are coupled to rubber tyres - not plastic like so many others. A metal chassis protection ring has been added on the outside and inside giving you that extra protection against damaging the chassis when you get a little too close to that wall or fence or hit that unseen dog bone or rock. The features don't stop there - this machine is also fitted with a seven stage height adjuster, you can cut from a low 25 to 76mm by just moving the lever located on the rear wheel, we also have a large 70 litre Dacron fabric, moulded base catcher bag with top and rear dust cover, ensuring you don't get covered in dust and dirt on those dry, dusty days. Under the deck of the mower you have a disc holding four high fluted swing back blades which will cut, catch and mulch (when fitted with the mulching plug supplied with the mower) like no other mower you have used in the past. To get a mower to perform as this mower does you need an engine which will not only start first time every time you need an engine which is tried and proven to be trusted and reliable - we have such an engine fitted to this new 800 SP series Bushranger Mower. Our Bushranger 800 SP series mowers are fitted with a Honda GXV160.
