I’m not one for normally writing reviews, but as there are hardly any reviews out there for this mower, I thought it would be helpful to others who are considering buying a new mower.

To sum up this mower in 1 word: Fantastic!

I was looking for a mower that is a good grass collector, plain and simple, as my old mower (a brand that is better known for green farm machinery than mowers) was breaking my heart as I was having to empty the basket 10-12 times plus, I was having to mow the lawn a 2nd time just to pick up all the grass cuttings that it didn’t collect on the 1st cut.

When you have kids that play in the garden, the last thing you want is to have to pick up the grass from inside the house as I found myself having to do – until now.

I have a medium to large lawn area and desperately wanted a mower that would save me time on cutting the grass and, more importantly, actually collect all the grass.

I have only used the mower once so far, but, I’m blown away by the mowers ability to collect so much grass in the grass box. It’s almost as if the grass is baled & compacted into the grass box.

The grass box is hinged so it’s really simple to empty.

The grass was damp and longer than I would prefer when the mower was put to its 1st test, but I only had to empty the grass box a total of 4 times.

Just as important, there were no grass cuttings left on the lawn, so I only had to cut it once – brilliant.

I went for this model (MB650T) over the larger 21” variable speed (MB655VM) on the recommendation of Donegans and I’m not disappointed.

Easy to start and the Aluminium deck should mean that this mower will last a long time. The height of the handlebar can be adjusted and it’s so easy to adjust the cutting height (on my old mower, the height lever would drop if knocked against a post / tree / swing post, etc. which was annoying).

Under the deck, the engine is fully protected with a casing – simple but smart.

Only minor criticisms (& they are minor) are that the mower isn’t as light as I would have expected and the Motorstop / Drive lever isn’t as close to the handlebar as I would like, but this is more than likely a safety feature.

Also, this mower doesn’t come with a Mulching option, but this wasn’t something I was looking for.

If you’re looking for a mower that is a superb grass collector, then you will not be disappointed with the Viking MB650T
