Hayter Harrier 56 BBC VS Lawn Mower – Blade Brake (575A)
The Hayter Harrier 56 BBC Lawn Mower is the largest pedestrian rear roller rotary lawnmower with the widest rear roller in its class. Featuring an impressive 53cm (21″) stripe with a 56cm (22″) cutting width as well as refined self-propelled engineering and beautifully balanced maneuverability.
The Blade Brake Clutch (BBC) mechanism stops the cutting blade but keeps the engine running which is ideal when emptying the grassbag or when moving from one lawn to another. The high performance cut and collection system has been designed using aerospace technology to ensure class-leading performance in every season.
The machine is still self propelled and has the Sens-a-Speed™ system that automatically adapts to your walking pace from 0 to 2.9mph.
The Vari-Pitch™ cutting technology automatically adjusts the cutter deck to increase airflow when set to cut longer grass (patent pending). The aluminium cutter deck has been designed for increased durability, rigidity and corrosion resistance. There are 7 height-of-cut settings between 13-60 mm, controlled by a single counter-balanced lever for quick adjustment.
Folding handlebars reduces the storage space needed. The easy to empty fabric grassbag can be lifted through the handlebars.

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?
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
