BMC Lawn Racer Review –  17″ Self-Propelled Wolf 3.75HP 4 Stroke Engine Rotary Petrol Lawn Mower with Mulching Facility (42cm)

BMC Lawn Racer Review


One of the main features of this powerful BMC Lawn Racer self-propelled mower is an excellent mulching facility. When done correctly and with the right equipment, it is a great benefit to your lawn. It will also save on fertiliser costs, make your lawn hardier and keep it happy and healthy.

It is not the largest lawn mower (17” or 42cm) but is a great balance between size and manoeuvrability. As the name suggests, this is a zippy mower and is ideal for medium gardens but can still cope with a slightly larger lawn. The BMC Lawn Racer is self-propelled so cutting is a breeze and it will handle gradients well. The large wheels have excellent grip and you can adjust the drive speed as necessary. It weighs in at 32 kg but the 3.75HP OHV 4 Stroke Unleaded Petrol Engine is more than capable of getting you around without major effort.

You can adjust the cutting height with an easy to operate lever from 25mm to 70mm. The solid grass box has a fair capacity of 40 L. At a 42cm cutting width you can get around a medium garden pretty quickly.

Assembly of this mower is really easy, everything is included, only the handle needs to be attached which is simple.

The BMC Lawn Racer is good value for money and provides a good option for most gardens. It is a popular choice with many favourable reviews from happy customers.
