The Hayter Harrier 48 Autodrive Lawn Mower (474A) features a rear roller and a Hayter 159cc engine. It has a 48 cm / 19″ width of cut and would be an ideal lawn mower for up to 2x tennis courts. The rear roller on this powerful self-propelled machine, gives a superb striped finish to fine lawns and with the cutter blade raised, rougher areas can also be cut with ease.
Classic stripes are achieved with a two piece, ribbed rear roller, providing superior traction and manoeuvrability with no turf marking when turning. The Incorporation of a Trim Side allows you to cut right to the edge – ideal for around borders, raised flower beds and retaining walls.
An Easy-Wash™ 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 lawn mower has a variable speed control, adjustable between 2.2 – 3.3mph to suit the operator and mowing conditions. Seven height-of-cut settings between 13-60mm are controlled by a single counter-balanced lever for quick adjustment.
The Harrier 48 has an easy to use 70 litre grass bag can be lifted through the handle-bars for easy emptying, or removed completely for use as a rear-discharge mower. The folding handle-bars reduce the storage space needed.

Masseys – Value for money
Masseys strive to offer you the best value for money, whilst maintaining the level of service and support that Massey’s has been known for since we were founded in 1947. This level of service includes fully trained staff to offer expert customer advice and product handover to make sure you are comfortable, warranty backup, spare parts backup and a great environment in which to shop with plenty of parking.
When buying a Hayter lawn mower, Masseys will assemble and PDI your machine, add the oil and some fuel to ensure it is in good working order before it leaves our store. That way you can be sure to be cutting the lawn as soon as you get home. We have a coffee shop in store whilst you wait for us to assemble your machine.
If lawn mower not supplied by ourselves, please return to the supplying dealer for any warranty issues.
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
