Hayter harrier 41 pro

Good morning, a dealer near me is advertising the hayter harrier 41 pro 2019 model at £600 inc vat. It has a honda engine which i know to be solid. I could do with a roller mower to add to my kit but have no experience of hayters apart from using a customers hayter 48 last year. Anyone been using these? Is it possible to fit a mulch blade? Any help would be much aporeciated, regards, Martin.

  • I've used one since the start of last season. For me the pro's are that it is quick, light and very easy to manoeuvre but still leaves a nice stripe and that is well built. The con is that it has proven to be poor in the wet. So for me on a dry day and on lawns that aren't huge it is fantastic, on wet days I just don't bother with it and use another machine. Not sure about mulch blades.

    With a small deck you're unlikely to mulch effectively, unless at risky low speed.

    As with all Hayter's, make engines running at optimum speed ( use a digi tacho to check) as generally set low for noise regs

    Do look for a 'high lift' after market blade ( both above suggestions coukd reduce life of machine and invalidate warranty)
