Hayter Harrier 48 BBC VS Lawn Mower – With Blade Brake (475A)
The Hayter Harrier 48 BBC Lawn Mower (475A) has an added benefit of the Blade Brake Clutch (BBC) mechanism stops the cutting blade while keeping the engine running. It is also useful if you move the mower over non-grassed areas.
You will get your classic stripes thanks to a two piece, ribbed rear roller, providing superior traction and manoeuvrability with no turf marking when turning. The engine on the BBC model is the Briggs and Stratton 163cc. The incorporation of a Trim Side allows you to cut right to the edge – ideal for around borders, raised flower beds and retaining walls. The lifetime warranty against engine crank-shaft bending should you accidentally hit a solid object.†
The Easy-Wash™ deck cleaning system is a convenient and easy way to clean the cutting chamber, ensuring optimum performance. The aluminium cutter deck has been designed for increased durability, rigidity and corrosion resistance compared to steel deck alternatives.
The high performance cut and collection system, designed using aerospace technology to ensure class-leading performance in a multitude of environments and seasons. The Vari-PitchTM cutting technology automatically adjusts the cutter deck to increase air flow when set to cut longer grass (patent pending).
The drive speed of the lawn mower is variable – adjustable between 2.2 – 3.3mph to suit the operator and mowing conditions.

At Masseys we would prefer to prevent problems rather than treat them. That is why we recommend a fuel stabiliser or Aspen fuel for all of our petrol lawn mowers – especially when petrol changes to the new E10 petrol.
Please use a fuel stabiliser or Aspen fuel with your lawn mower.
Fuel Stabiliser contains a carefully balanced formulation based on light hydrocarbon fractions and components specially selected for their performance enhancing properties:
- Prevents the degradation of fuel – fuel stays fresh for up to 2 years.
- Protects the fuel against oxidation.Prevents gum and varnish build up.
- Protects the engine and fuel system parts against rust and corrosion.
WHY DO I NEED TO USE FUEL STABILISER in my Hayter Harrier 48 BBC?
Modern petrol now typically contains 5% ethanol. Ethanol readily bonds with atmospheric moisture creating an ethanol-water mix and this oxidisation creates what is known as stale fuel.
As fuel oxidises it can turn to gum and clog jets and other openings in the fuel system. Gummed up carburettors cause serious problems in power equipment such as lawn mowers that see intermittent use or have long periods of storage. This problem would not be covered under warranty.
Ethanol blended fuel is also a corrosive substance that can cause the gradual destruction of the metal used in the fuel systems of outdoor power equipment (particularly soft metals such as brass and aluminium). Ethanol also absorbs water, drawing it into the fuel mixture. Water is highly corrosive and when ethanol and water combine it can cause performance problems and fuel system damage.
Good quality fuel stored in an airtight container should stay stable, not oxidise and stay fresh. However the typical fuel tank of a lawn mower isn’t ideal for storing fuel. It isn’t 100% airtight, so fuel will oxidise in the tank, and over time (as little as 30 days) will go stale.
What is Aspen fuel and why do we recommend it?
There are many reasons why people choose to use Aspen in their garden machinery.
All of these benefits contribute to a better all-round experience whilst using your machinery, making your gardening easier and more enjoyable.
- No expensive repair bills caused by stale fuel
- Your machine always starts and is ready to go, even after long standstill periods
- Lasts for years without deterioration
- Aspen does not contain ethanol
- Virtually odourless
- Less maintenance and a longer machine life
- Available in a conveniently sized container
- Premixed 2-stroke eliminates the need to mix yourself
- Easy to select the correct fuel using the coloured cans and coloured reminder stickers on your machine
- Protects your health and the environment
