The British Racing Green Mower from BMC - The British Mower Company
BMC Lawn Racer 17" Self Propelled 3.75HP 4 Stroke Rotary Petrol Lawn Mower with Mulching Facility
When you want a very powerful medium sized petrol driven, self propelled mower with fully adjustable drive speed control and a 17" cutting width look no further than the BMC Lawn Racer 17" lawn mower.
It's a well balanced machine with an all steel deck construction and fitted with the easy starting mighty Wolf 3.75HP 4 stroke OHV petrol engine and yet remains lightweight and highly manoeuvrable. The machine is easy to use, has a padded comfort handle and a fitted speed controller to allow you to walk behind at a speed to suit you.
With single lever cutting height adjusting control, the mower may be simply and quickly adjusted to cut at the required height to suit the ground conditions. Large and wide drive wheels give excellent traction grip even in damp conditions and when you've finished mowing, snap connect your garden hose to the deck cleaning point before simply flicking the quick release connectors to fold the handles for easy storage. The mower's 3 in 1 functionality means that you can cut, cut and collect or, with the supplied mulching plug fitted, mulch the grass clippings to feed the nutrients back into your lawn.

Bought in May 2015 and mowed the lawn twice when the gearbox gave up. Turns out this chinese rubbish has Nylon/plastic gears so they sheared off. Got in touch with the sellers and they said to send it back at my cost in the original box.
Got rid of the box a week after buying it as it was huge and took up a lot of room in the shed.
Sellers said the couriers won't take it back without the box.
Anyway after a lot of bad hassle on the phone I said that I can get a mower mechanic to look at it this end but they refused that as well. By then I'd had enough and told them to stuff it.
Gave it to my mower mechanic and he tried to get Wolf (it has a Wolf engine) to come and pick it up for repairs. 3 x times they failed to pick it up. So finally I got him to put the engine onto my old mower which worked fine for about 20 minutes. Now the crap is sat in the garage with an engine that won't rev up and only just tick over very roughly. I've had a look at it and changed the fuel and plug, cleaned the carb but still its playing. From first breakdown to being fixed was almost 10 months without a mower so now the lawn is a hell of a state and will take a contractor to mow it with a very big mower costing me around £80 apparently and I still need to get a new mower as the crap is going to the scrap yard on sunday.
But am I bitter ?.....You bet your bloody life I'm bitter as I couldn't afford to buy the crap in the first place.
Height adjustment is simple, only snark is the mulcher plate thingy will probably get lost somewhere in the deepest darkest depths of the garage, but that is not really a problem as I prefer the grass bag anyway. It does drive pretty quickly but you can slow that down, and the Dead mans handle is a bit of a pain (though that is now a safety feature of all mowers, so you cant avoid that. Unless of course you have a bit of string to move into position to do that, and down again to stop, but i never said that)
The water hose attachment is a nice idea, makes it really easy to clean off, but I recommend doing that bit on the patio, then sweeping up a little later (makes a mess of the lawn other wise)
It really is a nice mower for the price, good engine, good drive to the wheels too. no roller which is another downfall, but look at the price of it and the cut it gives, and you should be pretty happy with it.
