Have a look at this well-specced stonker from the house of Mountfield if you have a huge lawn (in excess of 40m x 40m) and can’t be bothered with pulling on a string to start your motor.

With this high-end model, there’s no need for unseemly huffing and puffing because it has electric key start; simply turn the key, and the 160cc Mountfield ST55ES OHV engine fires up in a flash. How much of a difference a key can make.

This mower has a 48cm cutting deck, a large 70-litre grass collector with an indicator to show when it’s full, five cutting height options (from 25mm to 65mm), and single-speed self-propulsion (a suitably stately 2.23mph) for easy navigation through the apple orchard. It also includes a mulching plug for people who wish to fertilise their lawn using the grass clippings.
