Do we recommend the Hyundai lawn mowers? While they are not the best we have come across, they are still a reliable option in our opinion and the lower price certainly goes a long way when it comes to seeking a self propelled lawn mower. Stock availability at times can be a problem especially at peak seasons but can be trusted more from Hyundai Power Equipment in the UK who also have all the spare parts that you would possibly need which goes a long way in our opinion

Have you any previous experiences of using Lawn Mowers under the Hyundai brand yourself in the past?

  1. Hi Steve – This has been a worthwhile read so thanks for doing all the hard and reviewing it for me before I buy. I had a Hyundai a long time ago and it has never let me down. A very nicely laid out review and easy to follow all the points I must say so thanks again – personally I can recommend a lawnmower from Hyundai as it performs very well, starts easily and can deal with heavy laid grasses when they have not been cut for a long time or if the lawn has been neglected. Regards, Gary

  2. Hyundai lawn mower is classy and one thing I like about Hyundai lawn mower is that it comes in different grades and capacities which will suit the basic needs of an individual’s aim in ordering Hyundai lawn mower. They all look strong but personally, I prefer the ones that has a higher power output such as the petrol power self propelled types, much better for larger lawns and gets the job done so much quicker

  3. This is one of the better reviews I have come across and its great that I don’t have to jump and skip from one review to the next as they are all included here on one page. We have used  a mountfield for the past 7 years and we are looking to upgrade to Hyundai now in the coming weeks – it’s not all that overpriced to me but I will definitely prefer a lower sale price. Going by this review, we will be selecting the Hyundai Self propelled 173cc 4 in 1 lawn mower as we need as much power as we can get to deal with weeds and our long thick grasses across 3 different lawns around our house. Just a quick note to say thanks for helping us with this review – it made our selection a lot easier

  4. A robotic lawn mower has several advantages over its noisy, manual, gas-powered classic designed lawn mower cousins. The prime advantage here is naturally the fact that you do not have to do anything other than watch the amazing technology as it winds its way through the yard.

  5. I have purchased a Hyundai hym460 spe, which was delivered this week, having used it twice all I comment on is how solidly built this machine is, the electric start is a breeze, the operation is fantastic. The only drawback is the weight – which is very heavy to handle
    But for a reasonable fit individual this won’t be a problem.

    • Hi, that’s good to hear and many thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave your feedback – it is very much appreciated, best of luck in the seasons ahead, Regards, Steve

  6. I have a hym 430 super electric start sounds good except the mechanism does not allow good discharge to the rear collection box. A dreadfull design error.Dont bother with this crap design.

  7. Hyundai HYM430SPE An absolute disgraceful product, which leads me to believe all the positive reviews are fake. You cannot even adjust the handle height and have to be a dwarf to use it. I would sack the product designer, no thought process has gone into the design of either a 6ft man or even a 5ft 10 women using it.
