I have owned a Champion R484 self propelled mower for over 4 years now. It still starts first time and runs like a dream . The only thing that has gone wrong is that the pull start rope guide(metal loop welded to the bolt through the handle) has come adrift. I just loop the pull cord over the plastic knob on the handle ! My mower has been used for well over 400 hrs as I have a large garden.So , just change the oil and clean the air filter every now and again and your mower will serve you well !

This is a good economical lawnmower, provides value for money and has the same body and engine as many others on the market costing more. Yes there does appear to be a problem with fuel starvation and the carburettor but keep it topped up with petrol, do not let the tank dry out for any length of time my mower starts first pull after having pushed the primer 3 times. If there is a shortage of fuel then it will not prime or start so best ensure the fuel is OK and the mower should start work well and give no problems

I purchased my first Champion self propelled lawn mower at a Focus store at the end of August last year.I have a large lawn which is approx.50x30yds.Having assembled the Champion I put in the required amount of oil & sufficient petrol to try it out.It started second time & after an initial gush of smoke ran very smoothly.I selected a suitable cutting hight & was very impressed with the quality of "Finish" left by the mower.It ran for about ten minutes & stopped.Checks showed that it had fuel & sparks but it proved impossible to start again.I took the machine back to Focust & it was replaced without fuss immediately. I assembled ... Read the complete review

After another wet winter when the grass grows quicker than my hairline recedes, I thought it was time I replaced my Qualcast Concorde E30 (Deluxe!) electric rotary mower for a real mower. Something that wasn't an accident waiting to happen if you ran over the trailing electric cable, same cable still not long enough to reach the bottom of my relatively small garden without an extension lead. Something that could cut in wet weather and with a large collector box that didn't need emptying more than once per use. A petrol mower now that's what I needed.. Looked on ebay, but the petrol mowers I bid for at £40 seemed to go for at least £80+. ... Read the complete review

I have owned my Champion R343 lawnmower for about a month now, having always previously been an electric mower pusher. However, as we moved into a new house recently and the old mower had packed in, it seemed like a good chance to get a petrol mower especially as the new gardens have much more lawn. Petrol mowers generally cost more than their electric counterparts, but if you have large lawn areas then they are far more suitable as you don't have wires trailing all over the place. I must admit to having cut through the electric cable of my old mower once previously, much to my embarrasment. Luckily I am still here today to tell the tale! The ... Read the complete review
