The Racing 4000T self-propelled petrol lawnmower – 16”/40 cm cut
If you are looking for a budget petrol lawnmower, the Racing 4000T self-propelled petrol lawnmower – 16”/40 cm cut is worth looking at. It offers great value for money and with 61 top reviews and a two-year warranty, it must be worth a look. The 16-inch cut is not really small and not massive, but it does offer great manoeuvrability. The Racing petrol lawn mower is recommended for lawns up to 400 m².
The Racing four stroke overhead valve 99cc petrol engine produces 2.4 hp of power. The engine starting system is a traditional recoil start. The fuel tank has a capacity of 1.2 L which should be more than enough fuel to cut the average size lawn.
I must admit I would have expected a slightly larger engine on a mower of this size. However, we are looking at a budget machine and generally, modern overhead-valve engines produce very smooth power.
The 16-inch cutting deck is ideal for smaller lawns of around 400 m². I guess that a 16-inch cutting deck is a fairly average size of a mower. The great thing is with a mower of this size is that it enables you to get where larger machines cannot go.
The 40 cm cutting deck is made from hard-wearing steel. This gives robustness and longevity.
The cutting deck has a single lever adjustment for ease of use. The cutting heights vary from 25 to 70 mm.
The grass collector has a 45 L capacity. The collector is made from fabric which allows the air to flow through the box and collect the grass. It’s important to keep grass boxes clean so that the air can flow through efficiently. When the grass box becomes clogged, the grass collecting efficiency will drop down dramatically.
The best way to clean a grass box is either with a power washer. Or to let the grass box dry out and then brush the grass box with a stiff hand brush. I have found that both ways work quite well.
The Racing 4000T self-propelled petrol lawnmower – 16”/40 cm cut is self-propelled for ease of use. The rear wheels drive the machine forward, simple handlebar controls engage the drive clutch.
Unfortunately, there are a few mowers that have front-wheel drive, these are terrible to use. Since when you turn the mower you lift the front wheels off the ground, so the mower immediately stops driving! Thankfully, the Racing 4000T has rear-wheel drive which is far superior.
The Racing 4000T self-propelled petrol lawnmower – 16”/40 cm cut certainly offers value for money. And judging by the reviews, people really like this budget lawnmower. The three-plus points for me are the price, the reviews, and the two-year warranty.
As I mentioned this is a budget domestic mower, so you can’t expect everything. I would have liked to have seen a slightly larger engine for a mower of this size. However, for that price, you cannot have everything!
