The Harrier 48’s Autodrive system, featuring variable speed control (1.5mph-3mph), and efficient rotary cutter blade are powered by a Briggs & Stratton 675iS Series™ EcoPlus™ petrol engine, engineered to offer excellent performance with reduced noise and emissions, while the integrated ReadyStart® system means that there is no need to prime the engine before use. InStart® Lithium-Ion battery technology provides the latest and easiest way to start your engine, offering repeated and reliable engine starting at just the turn of a key. Battery simply ‘clicks’ into the engine housing, providing up to 50 starts on a full 60-minute charge. Easy to remove without tools for charging or safe storage. ‘Fast Charge’ facility provides up to 10 starts with only 10-minutes charge.
The attention to detail lavished on the engine of the Harrier 48 Autodrive is extended to the rest of the machine. The split ribbed rear roller, for example, is designed to offer superior traction and manoeuvrability, as well as to produce a crisp striped finish on your lawn. Moreover, variable height-of-cut adjustment (13-60mm), controlled via simple and convenient counter-balanced single lever system, means that the Harrier 48 is versatile enough to deal with a variety of lawn conditions. As well as offering excellent performance, the Harrier 48 Autodrive is also notable for the quality of its build, with a corrosion resistant die-cast aluminium deck and robust ABS underdeck liner making this machine as durable as any on the market.
Moreover, the cutting deck is engineered to further boost performance, with integrated enhancement fins for improved cut and collection, and a deck which extends beyond the wheel base to allow for easy mowing around borders. Manufactured in Great Britain, the Harrier 48 Autodrive also comes with Hayter’s five-year consumer warranty, further bolstering the longevity of this already impressively durable machine.
