General info

1.Is gas-powered
Hecht 553 BS
A gas-powered lawn mower offers several benefits over an electric one. For example, the increased power allows them to easily cut through longer/tougher grass, and they are not limited by cord length or how long the battery lasts.
2.Has electric start
Hecht 553 BS
Sometimes it can be hard to start gas-powered lawn mowers, but with an electric starter you can be guaranteed of it starting first time.
3.Has side discharge
Hecht 553 BS
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.
4.Is self-propelled
Hecht 553 BS
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
5.Is cordless
Hecht 553 BS
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
6. larger grass catcher

72l

A larger collection bag means you have to empty it less often, and is particularly important with a larger lawn.

Cut quality

1.maximum cutting height

75mm

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.
2. wider cutting width

53cm

With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.
3.Has mulching feature
Hecht 553 BS
With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.
4.cutting height ratio

3.7

The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
5.minimum cutting height

20mm

A lower minimum cutting height is an advantage if you prefer a shorter grass length for your lawn. However, shorter grass requires good weather conditions to stay lush and green, such as warm weather and moderate sunlight.

Performance

1.Has an overhead valve engine
Hecht 553 BS
An overhead valve (OHV) engine is usually found in high-end models, and provides more power and fuel economy than a side valve design.
2.wattage

3200W

A tool/machine with a higher wattage produces more power.
3.horsepower

5hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4. larger recommended area

1600m²

With a larger maximum surface area you can mow bigger lawns.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Hecht 553 BS
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
2.Easy height-adjustment
Hecht 553 BS
You can adjust the height of all four wheels at once, as opposed to some lawn mowers where you have to adjust each wheel separately. This makes it quicker and simpler to adjust the height of the lawn mower.
3.Easy to pivot
Hecht 553 BS
The lawn mower has a lever which allows you to easily raise the front wheels, making it easier to pivot and manoeuvre.
