Checking out the 53 SPBS


Roman, Ismail:

“Based on the topic of the mower, I would like to say that there are a lot of quality reviews from the manufacturer on this technique. This is very nice because usually little information is collected gradually and you only learn the whole truth when you start working with the mower”.

The MTD 53 Smart is a good mower, it’s powerful and works great. I don’t understand why some units don’t hold up and break down. My only guess is to fill up with cheap gasoline and any oil. Then no equipment will survive.

MTD Smart 53 Spo Lawnmower features

  • Powerful petrol engine.
  • Three operating modes.
  • Comfort and maneuverability.

Powerful engine provides smoother operation, saves fuel and reduces emissions. And when the cutting unit encounters an obstacle or a stationary object it triggers an automatic stop. This saves fuel and keeps the cutterbar safe.

The petrol lawnmower has three operating modes. You can eject the grass clippings through the rear deflector, store them in the 70 litre dense fabric grass catcher box or shred them with the mulching kit. This makes it possible to make hay and compost or distribute the cuttings evenly over the lawn, providing the soil with nutrient moisture.

The compact size of the self-propelled mower allows the operator to maneuver around difficult areas and neatly avoid obstacles. It is also possible to rearrange the power level with a special grip. Having six cutting positions from 28 to 92 mm is very useful when working on uneven terrain.
