Wiebang 50 svp

Any got a weibang 50 svp 3 in 1 mower?

Interested in long term reliability,  mulch and collect performance,  operator comfort and any issues.  Going to be used commercially 7 days a week. At £600 it's less than half the price of the Honda 537 HRX which we rate highly. Granted it's not got a BBC but will be used in mulch mode most of the time so not a big issue.  Thanks.

    Hi Peter


    I have had one of these for 18 months. Had to get the belt changed after a year as it was about to ping but was due a service anyway. So it has been very reliable, no surprise really as it is a very solid well built machine but this makes it a little heavy and bulky. 

    It has been my main mower for that time and some days used all day long continually and has never let me down.

    I would get rid of the standard blade that comes with it and put on either the highlife blade or the mulch blade if mulching as both leave a much better finish and the high lift blade will pack the bag every time unless really wet long grass.

    I would give this mower the thumbs up but I haven't been blessed with trying lots of different mowers so my experience is limited.


    Hope this helps

    • James, thanks appreciated! Can you remember how much the high lift and mulch blades were? Thanks Peter 

      • PRO

        Not cheap,  if I can remember off the top of my head around £40 - £50. 

        Mulching blade from Fr jones and the highlift was from weibang directly. 

  • I have 2 AL-KO  4 in 1 machines, great pick up in the wet, packs the solid box, mulches great, side discharge spits out knee high stuff. They plough through everything. Never had a problem in 7 years apart from a drive cable

    ,belts and bearings.

    German design, Austrian build, parts easily available and not chinese.

    I would highly recommend at a good price. Only downside not as quick as I would like.



  • I'm a massive fan of Weibang. I currently own a Virtue 53 SSD. Shaft drive. It's by far and away the best mower I've ever owned. Although Weibas in general are heavier than other brands.

    I used to own the SV50 but it had a slight problem. It would smoke like crazy from time to time. This was a known fault on the earlier ones I think. But Weibang customer service is truly amazing. Within 48hrs of me reporting the issue to Weibang I had a brand new replacement machine free of charge.

    Id of thought by now any issues they may have had with the SV50 would have been well sorted by now. I certainly would have no hesitation in reccomending Weibang to anyone. Just remember to order the high lift blade with it. That makes all the difference. 

  • Still a long way behind the good old mowers but I'd say best of a bad bunch. Mine is 2yr old and no issues yet unlike it's predecessor 

    • What puts off is having to swap blades between collecting and mulching,  the hrx,s we run we can go from one job to the other without this faff

      • You don't need to swap blades. Weibang do a dedicated mulching blade. But you can just stick the mulching plug in and use the normal blade. 

        • Adrian says you do need to change blades?

          • I disagree. Obviously a dedicated mulching blade would be better if that what you want to do. But there is absolutely nothing stopping you from just sticking the mulch plug in with a standard or high lift blade if you want.
