You really don’t want to have to stop and re-start the engine each time you empty the grassbag or cross a non-grass area, and for that reason Hayter have equipped this high-specification rear-roller mower with a time- and effort-saving blade-brake clutch that makes it possible to stop the blade but keep the engine running.
The Hayter Harrier 48 has a substantial 48cm cut and a power-drive to its rear-roller, so large areas can be covered with speed and efficiency. The forward speed can be varied between 1.5 and 3mph to suit both your preferred walking pace and the prevailing conditions.
The mower-deck on the Harrier 48 is made from die-cast aluminium, which combines lightweight strength with inherent corrosion resistance. A hardwearing ABS plastic under-deck lining works to minimise blade-noise and allows for easy cleaning; while a series of fins positioned at the front of the deck ensure performance is optimised in terms of both cut and collection.
Thanks to its full-width rear-roller this feature-packed machine will leave a pronounced striped finish with no gaps between the bands. Ribbing on the roller provides added traction and helps prevent scuffing; while a split differential makes turning that much easier.
Central to the Harrier 48 Autodrive is its high-powered 190cc Briggs & Stratton 650-Series engine; a quick starting unit which develops the sort of torque that’s essential when working on long, damp grass. A float-feed type carburettor guarantees reliable first-pull ignition; while a pleated-paper air filter (the type usually found on car engines) provides optimal engine protection.
In order to ensure the frequency of emptying-breaks is kept to a minimum, Hayter have equipped the Harrier 48 Autodrive with a very large-capacity 70-litre grass-catcher. It’s made from fabric rather than plastic, so spent air can escape, in turn ensuring you can pack-in more grass.
Other key features include a seven-step height-of-cut, which is simple to set using a single counterbalanced lever; and a folding handlebar for space-saving storage.
