- Honda GCVx145 145cc engine
- Single lever height of cut adjustment 6 positions 22-80mm
- 60 litre grass collector with bag full indicator

With a robust steel chassis, the Mountfield SP46 Elite lawn mower is powered by a Honda GCV145 145cc 4-stroke engine. Power drive to the large diameter rear wheels will take the effort out of cutting your grass and this mower will handle rougher ground with ease. The cutting height of the 46cm/18″ deck is operated by a single lever and has a choice of 6 cutting heights ranging from 22-80mm. A skid plate is fitted at the front of the cutter deck, ensuring the best possible finish minimising the risk of scalping on uneven surfaces.
Clippings can be collected in the large 60 litre capacity grass collector, or if the grass is longer remove the collector and rear discharge or simply insert the mulching plug and drive in mulching mode. Mulching enables you to finely cut the grass clippings into a nitrogen-rich mulch which is recycled back into the lawn as a natural fertiliser.
The engine is very easy to start thanks to the Autochoke system and the handles can be easily folded for convenient storage. This mower is suitable to medium sized gardens.

Please use a fuel stabiliser or Aspen fuel with your Mountfield SP46 Elite lawn mower.
WHAT DOES FUEL STABILISER DO?
Mountfield Universal 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.
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.
