In mulching-mode, which is ideal for neat, frequently mowed lawns, the cut grass is mulched and forced back into the standing grass, where it will quickly rot and release essential moisture and nutrients; while in side-discharge mode – great for longer grass – clippings are ejected to the right-hand-side of the mower so they won’t get tangled around your feet.
The MTD S53MSPB Self-Propelled Mulcher Lawnmower comes powered by a 140cc Briggs & Stratton 550E-Series engine with an overhead-valve that enables it to run cooler and cleaner (than a side-valve engine) for reduced fuel-costs and a longer working-life.
A Dura-Bore™ cast iron sleeve ensures the cylinder will cope with season after season of abuse and wear; while B & S’s Super Lo-Tone Muffler delivers the quietest lawn-mowing experience possible.
In order to help you deal with differing grass-lengths and terrains, MTD have furnished the S53MSPB with six preset heights-of-cut, adjustable from 28 to 92mm via individual wheels.
It’s a power-driven machine, so excels when it comes to covering inclines and rough-grass areas; and it features an ergonomically optimised handlebar, which is fully foldable for space-saving transport and storage.
Also noteworthy is the strong and durable steel cutter-deck.
