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.

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.

Hyundai Lawnmower 510mm 196cc Self-Propelled E-Start

Works really well but is heavy. Happy with it after using a few times.

Last Mower

Hi, I was after a mower that both me & my wife could use as we move further into our 60's so thought the electric start & self propelled option would be a good option. The 21" cut is really nice, but the mower is very heavy to turn & the drive system is heavy when pulling backwards or pushing (Like not disengaging very well) so my wife won't use it. It would be a good mower for long straight cuts ? Love the electric start.

I'm happy

Great machine, chews through large lawns, loads of power, loads of features for the price, catches well & mulches great even for a single blade, includes 600ml bottle of oil in the box. I had a difficult time choosing between the less expensive single speed or the 4 speed option but im rather glad i spent the extra money as having the ability to take it slow in tight areas is great but to be honest it was the cup holder that sold me haha, overall great machine very happy with purchase, I do recommend this product.

Promising but fell short.

Got suggested this mower by a friend when buying into a lawn mowing business and it looked promising, One immediate issue became the height adjustment, as the lowest reasonable height (lvl 2) was too high and lvl 1 was way to low and there was no in between. The cut was okay but not perfect, would sometimes not get some blades of grass but overall was ok. The self propelled cable snapped pretty easily and within a few month of use, it become pretty unusable due to how heavy and bulky it was pushing without the self propelled helping out. Build quality is fairly cheap with a lot of plastic being used. Not worth using this in any kind of damp/wet conditions as it clogs up and the sideshoot can clog up pretty easily. Biggest upside of the mower is the mulching, out of all the push mowers Ive used so far it mulches quite well and doesn't leave much behind. This lawnmower might be okay for residential use but wouldn't recommend it if your using it a lot and definitely wouldn't recommend it for starting a business or current lawn businesses. Better to get a cheaper lighter non-SP mower or a more expensive SP mower.

very pleased with purchase

Catcher works very well. Drive belt slipped off after a dozen or so uses, but was fairly easy to refit. Heavy, so as long as you are going forward under self propulsion it is terrific, but if you have nooks and crannies to work into , then pulling it back out will be as much effort as saved from the drive going forward! Extra width + top gear + large catcher capacity means I am mowing lawn 2x faster than previous mower. If it had a reverse gear I would give it 5 stars

Hyundai self propelled lawnmower

Had this a couple of years now been in the local workshop having self propelled pulleys replaced 3 times And just this week Jan 8th the self drive stuffed again!! The hyundai motor seems good 196cc Plenty of power but mower far too heavy with no self propelled doubt be another few weeks with no mower!

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.
