Product overview

This top of the range, lawn mowing masterpiece from Hyundai is designed to make short work of big lawns.

The push button electric start means minimal fuss - just fuel up, push and go! The button is even removable when not in use to deter curious kids.

With a generous cutting width of 510mm, it is ideal for medium to large size lawns, while the centrally adjustable 6 position cutting height of 25mm to 75mm puts you in control over the final look of your lawn - go for military precision or a more natural finish.

The premium 196cc 4-stroke motor powers the big 510mm blade plus the variable 4 speed self-propelled rear wheel drive - with all the forward motion taken care of, you can focus on getting the perfect cut without breaking a sweat. The fully enclosed drive-belt has an easily removed maintenance cover and the large rear driven wheels make manoeuvring in overgrown or rough areas easier. There are even twin cup holders for refreshments!

The handle is height adjustable and features an OPC (operator present control) lever for safety.

Built tough with an all steel deck and backed by a 2 Year Hyundai Warranty, you know it’s built to last. The deck even features built-in hose connectors for easy cleaning.

Fill up the 70L grass catcher, or alternatively, mulch as you go or use the side or rear discharge.

If you have large lawns, or just want the best available, order yours today.

Hyundai Lawnmower 510mm 196cc Self-Propelled Electric Start

7 days ago


This mower is solid and works well, it is quite heavy but the self propelled and electric start make it fun to cut the lawns. It seems to work better if the grass is dry. The catcher is quite large volume which makes the job go easier as the catcher doesn't need to be emptied as often.

Could do with going a little faster in 4th gear and a little heavy to pull backwards due to gearing on driven rear wheels but a good mower overall. Powers through longer grass without effort with a nice clean cut and the extra width speeds things up. I'm happy with my purchase.

I and two neighbours bought one each this year to replace our aging ride-ons. We all love them, so easy to use and none has had any problems or issues so far. We find the catchers handle damp/wet grass really well which is a big plus where we are located. NB. Buy the 1 litre oil pack that's offered with the mower. The sump needs to be filled before use. Ours gave a false reading on the dipstick at first but took most of the pack.

The weight when not using the self-propelled feature is somewhat heavy to push than a normal mower our property is on farmlet and down the driveway is not the best and also has a small bank. The self-propelled now makes mowing a breeze. And the wider cut is awesome. Before if I was to do all lawns in one go it would take 2 1/2 hours, I've now knocked it back to 1 1 /2.

Needed some assembly. Instructions ok but not comprehensive. Once assembled started first time and does a great job on a large lawn. Self propel really helps getting through the longer grass. Good cut and catcher is large and easy enough to empty. Attaching hose to clean it is easy and works well.

Mower start easily (easier on electric than pull start)and runs well. Negative are the front wheels. They need to swivel as turning the mower on corners scrapes the lawn as the mower is heavy. Also the lever to keep the motor going is a real nuisance. The mower we have has a throttle lever.

Purchased to maintain 800m+ section. Very well priced and pleased with mowing end result. Is a bit heavy to manoeuvre in tight spots and body not off-set to cut over edges unfortunately. Pleased with purchase.

Excellent product. Good assembly instructions and video link (well worth a watch). Does a great job and electric start starts first time every-time. The pull start is easy and also starts first pull. 4 speed self propelled is great for any walking pace. The self wash works great at keeping it clean.

Munrog Nelson

Not as good as hoped for

8 months ago


I bought this mower because it looked on paper to be more than capable of lifestyle block like lawns. It’s a great mower in many respects but is clearly designed for use on flat well kept urban lawns. It doesn’t like long grass and it doesn’t like damp grass and it really struggles with the combination of the two. The side chute clogs easily and in long grass it is constantly knocked off resulting in multiple restarts while you refit the chute. On the plus side the mower is solid and the electric start and self propulsion are great. But it’s not going to cope outside of a well maintained urban lawn. The photo shows thick grass it struggles to cut.

Until today I was very pleased with my purchase. However, after approximately 8 hours of use the self drive mechanism on the lawnmower has failed. I'm contacting Trade Tested to find out what they will be doing about this. In other respects this is a good mower, although a bit heavy and definitely needing the drive mechanism. Some of the construction is a bit on the cheap and plastic side too. The self start system has been reliable and the actual cutting result is excellent. Also easy to clean. For now though, not so happy!

I'm absolutely stoked with my new Hyundai HYM510SPE lawnmower. It's heavy but self-propelled so will get you around large lawns with ease even if there are slopes and banks to contend with. The reliable 4-stroke motor is fuel efficient and eco-friendly engine delivers power to the rear wheels. Overall this is a very high quality well-made powerful lawnmower that is built to perform and last.

Extremely solid, strong mower. First indication of quality is the ~47kg weight! It just eats lawn height and slopes. Not for a small lawn. Great for big lawns where a ride on is not quite warranted. Highly recommended.

Have used the mower a few times since delivery and to date, meets all expectations. Self Propelling and electric start a God send .We have a very large Homestead with multiple lawns and a ride on is not suitable, the Hyundai seems to manage it well. It is a beast of a machine to manouver in tight areas, but you can expect that from a large unit .All in all, pleased with it .

This self propelled lawnmower is great to use. Easy to start and control and cuts well. Catcher hold a good quantity of clippings so do not have to empty it every five minutes. We have a very large garden which I used to cut with a ride on but this machine does just as well and I get the exercise as well.

I've had this mower a couple of months now and am very happy with its performance. Some minor assembly required but pretty straightforward. Battery takes 6 hours to charge initially but holds charge well ( I haven't worked out if it is charged by running the machine but it certainly holds the charge and I haven't had to put it back on the charger). The electric start is a breeze and certainly beats pulling on the pull cable (which it has but I haven't had to use). The other revelation is the self-propelled feature which makes mowing easy. It's a big, heavy machine which cleaves through the grass and would be hard work with it being self-propelled. Great for larger areas but too big for small areas where high manoeuvrability is required. The catcher looks flimsy and is a bit tricky to connect until you get the hang of it- however it works fine and holds a reasonable amount of clippings. I read a review lamenting the fact you have to turn off the mower to empty the catcher but it really isn't a problem with the electric starter. The mulching feature works well- I haven't tried the side disposal feature yet. All in all I am very pleased with the purchase to date.

This mower nicely built and well finished, it starts very easily, our section is steep in places and I find the 4 speed gearbox more useful than I thought. The drink holders are a bonus, the only thing I would like to have seen is that I handle that is adjustable for height, but other than that I’m very happy
