Steer clear at all costs!,
This review is from: MAKITA PLM4612 Petrol Lawn Mower - Self Propelled (DIY & Tools)
Tried to buy the 4611 single speed - none available - "upgraded" to this "3 Speed" machine.
There's no 3 speed gearbox, just a torturous arrangement of pulleys that wear out the Drive belt in no time. Took 3 weeks to get another belt, Makita UK varying between apparently helpful but nothing coming, to plain obstructive.
2 mechanics and self all defeated in attempting to fit new belt.
No manuals available, Makita UK website doesn't acknowledge the existence of this machine, and it seems to have been deleted rather promptly by all retailers.
So I have a useless machine and clearly Makita don't give a monkeys.
Stick to a Honda or Hayter!!
