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 3 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.

Some self-propelled mowers have a resistance when you pull it backward, which is very annoying. Does this mower have this problem?
No, it has a drive lever that lets you engage and disengage the drive.

Will the mower turn off every time you let go of the handle say to empty the catcher is there a way to overide this feature i empty 12 catcher loads from my lawn so would i have to restart mower each time.
Yes it will switch off each time, we would not recommend over-riding this safety feature. Luckily this mower features push button starting and a wall-charger for the battery.

Hi, do the handles fold over for storage? Is the oil shown on the advert suitable for the mower? Ie which oil is recommended?
Yes the handle folds over for storage, if you scroll through the different images there is a useful image that shows how the handle can fold. Yes, either 15W40 or SAE30 oil is recommended.

Some four-strokes shut down on small slopes due to the engine lacking oil flow momentarily, is this an issue with this model?
No small general slopes are fine, you should avoid very steep slopes.

Easy to set up use and quick

Was easy to put together and no issues. Starts reliably once you read the instructions and realise the front lever is the cutoff not the rear. Use to take me 2 Hours to do our grass with a standard push mower with this unit it does it better in less than half the time.

Do not buy

Do not recommend. Had ours less than a year and the push start battery does not hold its charge. Then self propelled stopped working. Now I have a lawn mower that doesn’t work, $1000 garden ornament. Utter rubbish

Good and bad.

I've used this three times now and it has some issues. I'm comparing this to other self propelled and mulching mowers I have owned. On the underside it has a circular cowling/shroud that closely follows the blade arc. It is very low compared to the blade and unless your lawn is perfectly flat it will catch every small bump, undulation or weed tuft and come to a complete stop, spinning the wheels... or that sharp cowling will gouge the turf up. I literally cannot use it on the lowest setting due to this and the next setting up is quite a high cut compared to my other mowers that mow the same lawn with ease. It's a hell of a heavy mower to be lifting the front or back wheels up constantly to try and free it. The wheels look chunky but due to the weight it slides down the slope easily when mowing across. The fuel cap retainer fell off and dropped into the tank on the 2nd fill. On the positive side, it has plenty of power and climbs with ease and mulches cleanly without leaving lines or clumps.

Great Mower

Very easy to use, does a good job on our thicker grass.

Update after a year

After a year of use I can honestly say I wouldn't recommend this mower as it has a couple of significant design flaws. - The gearbox takes-up more than half the width of the rear of the mower which leaves very little room for the grass to exit, so it regularly clogs. I gave up using it today and went back to my old push mower which didn't even notice the grass I was cutting! - A weeks-worth of growth in Auckland in the summer after rain is enough to render this useless. - You can't combat the above by cutting the grass shorter as it can't go low enough. - The side exit chute clogs easily, comes adrift with the slightest provocation and is made of poor quality materials. - It is very heavy when it has to be spun around at the end of a run. - It is slower on it's fastest setting than you really want. - It's full of plastic that is starting to look frail already. - One drive cable and the side exit chute lasted less than a year.

A step up from previous self propelled mower

With a large and sloping lawn, I purchased a well known brand of self propelled mower 6 years ago. It was adequate, but never easy to use. When my son needed a mower recently I decided I would purchase a new model and let him have the old one. I researched the available models, and this Hyundai model stood out, with the features I considered important. I have now used the mower for a month, so that's 3 full mows and it is performing as well as I could have hoped. Easy to set up out of the box, easy to start (love the electric start) easy to catch and empty with the larger, light weight catcher, easy to mulch, which I like to do occasionally. The self drive works well also. I am pleased I chose this model, its making the lawn mowing chore a lot more pleasant than before.

Great mower with 4 speed so us old fellas can keep up with it. Ideal cutting heights, easy electric start, big catcher that actually fills right up. It's even got drink holders for your beers!

Lawn mower

I bought this lawn mower for my wife as she wanted to take over the mowing for me. This is very easy for her to start, and to empty the catcher. My wife tells me the lawn mover is so easy to use, easy to start, and very easy to push. Thank you. On behalf of my wife.

I have a large section with multiple areas with differing levels slopes and fast growing Kikuyu. I had been contracting out the lawnmowing for years as this was a big job when combined with the edging required (lots of trees). Decided to take the plunge and do the job myself after the last lawn contractor threw the towel in. Chose this machine due to its large cutting deck and self propelled feature. I wasn't planning on the auto start feature. So glad I went with the auto start - it makes the start stop effortless and so far has been bullet proof. Overall the machine is excellent with really practical & accessible features. The end result is always a great looking lawn. The steel cutting deck seems robust but there is a lot of plastic parts on this machine so it will be interesting to see how they withstand the test of time. Features that could do with improvement: The side discharge plastic chute can be easily dislodged by brushing past anything solid - have had to re-align this many times. The recoil manual starter is cheaply made and the spring dislodged after the second test. (kinda of redundant with the electric starter). The push handle also isn't designed well for easy collapsing and storage so I don't bother folding it down after use. However that said - it represents excellent value for money and makes mowing a large lawn an absolute breeze. Features I really like: Variable speed for the self propelled drive Easy of start stop Largest cutting deck I could find for a push type mower Side discharge/Mulch or Catcher options.
