Qualcast Lawnmower Support

If you need further support for your Qualcast Lawn mower, there is a UK dedicated customer helpline which can answer queries in relation to technical support, assembly or parts. The number to call Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm is 01904 727500 or you can email them directly at support@gardenservicecentre.co.uk. There is also the possibility to call them Saturday’s or Sundays from 11am to 4pm which tends to be slower due to lower staff numbers but have your query well prepared in advance to have the issue resolved as quickly as possible (including photos)

 

Additional Requirements:

While you get all the things you would expect with the delivery, there will also be a few obvious things to have organised to get the lawnmower up and running. Some of the items to prepare are a small container with unleaded petrol, a funnel for pouring it in and also some SAE30 or 4 stroke oil. Some small assembly tools are included such as a bolt tightener and mini spanner are provided to get the frame fully assembled lock tight. It is extremely important NOT to start the engine without the 500ml SAE oil added in first so please make sure this is completed as quickly as possible to avoid damaging the engine.

Qualcast Lawn Mower UK Review – 3 Recommendations

Option 1: Qualcast 41cm Petrol Push Lawnmower 450E

Brief Overview:

Briggs & Stratton engine
Engine 450E 125cc power
Push petrol operation
Lower priced solution
Cutting width 41cm
Hybrid grass collection bag
Carry handle front bumper
Grass bag capacity 45L
5 mow height settings
Mow heights 2.5-7.5cm
Warranty 2 years long

Qualcast Lawnmower Overview:

  • The first Qualcast lawnmower that you should consider is the lowered priced Qualcast 41cm Petrol Push Lawnmower which comes with the Briggs & Stratton 450E 125cc engine and stock levels appear to be quite good when seen at Homebase. Price wise you can expect to get your hands on this for less than £250 and further information can be double checked below including todays price tag.
  • While it is on the smaller side, it does have a mow cutting width of 41cm (slightly over 16 inches) so this lawnmower is more geared towards your smaller to medium sized gardens only. If you have a half acre site, then a wider larger lawnmower would work far better instead
  • The handles work fine as long as they are assembled correctly and you get a good quality hybrid grass collection bag on the rear which comes with the top flap to secure it into place. There is a carry handle when you need to lift it into a storage position or carry across difficult terrain and there are 5 mow height settings that range from 2.5cm up to 7.5cm
  • Grass clipping collections into the rear bag work fine with very little left behind and the weight of 23kg is not too difficult to push around the garden but can be more challenging around slopes. Overall a good quality lawnmower covered with a 2 year warranty and dedicated UK support back up team

Price Guide: Less than £250 @ Homebase

Main Pros and Cons to note in Summary

Pros to Note:

  • Offers good value for what you get – in particular the 41cm push lawnmower for less than £250
  • Back up support in the UK (01904 727500) as well as 2-year warranty for peace of mind
  • Deliveries tends to be reliable and completed within a few working days
  • The self-propelled lawnmowers provide the support you need around slopes and difficult terrain
  • Good performance when it comes to starting, if not the first pull then normally on the second or third works fine

Cons to Note:

  • Speed settings from the self-propelled lawnmowers take a bit of getting used to, especially around corners and flower beds
  • Limited availability in the UK from what we see – only a specific number of suppliers carry a reliable stock cover
  • Some of the parts are a little flimsy and could be more robust for hard wearing and heavy-duty mowing
  • Grass clipping collections into the bag could be better and the customer service back up can be unreliable at times
