Hyundai HYM510SP Review – 173 cc Self Propelled Electric Petrol Lawn Mower

Hyundai HYM510SP Overview

The Hyundai HYM510SP is a powerful self propelled petrol lawn mower that is fitted with 2019 Hyundai 139cc 4 stroke engine. The Hyundai HYM510SP has a large 51cm sized blade and deck size and is designed for medium to larger gardens. A huge 70 litre grass collection box is supplied and the height of the Hyundai HYM510SP can be adjusted to 6 positions from 25mm to 75mm via a central lever. This mower is packed with cutting options including cut and collect, cut and drop, mulching and side discharge.


Summary

Hyundai HYM510SP Review

The Hyundai HYM510SP is self-propelled so will get you around a large garden with ease even if there are slopes and banks to contend with. The 4-stroke engine delivers power to the rear wheels and gives you a choice of 4 mowing speeds. You can adjust it according to your cutting requirements and the size and nature of the lawn area.

This mower comes with  a recoil starter and NOT the electric start option as on the Hyundai HYM510SPE. The cutting height is quick and easy to adjust via a simple central lever. There are 6 height options from 25mm to 75mm for that perfect cut in all seasons.

The 51cm cutting width and a huge 70 L grass box on the Hyundai HYM510SP will help you make quick work of even a large lawn. The grass box features a level indicator so you can easily see when it needs emptying, and is easy to take off or put back on.

This mower has 4-in-1 cutting options allowing for various cutting configurations including mulching, more on these option later in this review.

Another great advantage of the Hyundai HYM510SP is the 3-year platinum Hyundai warranty. For safety, it has the OPC (Operator Presence Control) lever to stop the engine as soon as the lever is released.

Overall, this is a well-made powerful lawn mower that is built to perform and last. It is a great choice for larger gardens.


Hyundai HYM510SP

Hyundai HYM510SP Features:

  • Self-propelled
  • Large 51cm cutting width
  • Large 70 L easy release grass box
  • Good build quality with quality components
  • Powerful 173 cc engine
  • Low emission
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Reliable motor
  • OPC safety lever
  • Easy height adjustment

Cutting Diameter and Features

The Hyundai HYM510SP offers excellent 4-in-1 cutting features.

  • Cut and mulch – grass is cut into fine pieces and dispersed below the mower.
  • Cut and collect – grass is cut and collected in the rear collection box.
  • Side Discharge – grass is cut and discharged to the side of the mower.
  • Rear discharge – grass is cut and discharged from the rear of the mower.

A great feature of this mower is the mulching function – this is something that is missing from other brands of petrol mowers or is an optional extra. Not with this Hyundai HYM510SP, the mulching plug is supplied as standard with this mower. As you mow it cuts the lawn clippings into tiny pieces that are then spread back over the lawn adding moisture and nutrients to your grass improving your lawns condition and appearance whilst saving you time.

With so many cutting options on this Hyundai mower, this mower is sure to meet any gardeners needs for years to come.

Height Adjustment

As with all mowers, you can adjust the cutting height according to your requirements and the growing season. This Hyundai HYM510SP has 6 height positions ranging from 25mm to 75mm and will be adequate for all circumstances.

On some mowers I have tested, I found the height adjustment to be difficult to adjust and you have to fight with it to get the height you want. Not with this Hyundai, the centrally located lever make it a breeze to adjust the height of this mower.

Self Propelled Drive

This Hyundai HYM510SP is the self propelled version of this mower that drive the larger rear wheels. This HYM510SP does NOT have the variable 4 speeds as does the HYM510SPE. What’s great about being self propelled is that you simply walk behind the mower guiding it into the direction you want, making light work of uneven surfaces and steep inclines.

I found the single speed to be more than adequate, however if you do want the additional speeds, then please see my review of the Hyundai HYM510SPE.

Not only does the HYM510SPE have the 4 speed settings, it also has the addition of electric push button start; this HYM510SP does NOT have these two features. These extras do come at an additional cost that some may not be able to justify.

The handy comparison table below shows the slight difference in specification and the price difference between these two mowers.

What’s the difference between the HYM510SP and the HYM510SPE?

Grass Box Capacity

The 70 Litre grass collector on this Hyundai HYM510SP Self Propelled Lawnmower features a high airflow plastic top with aerated fabric sides. The grass collection box comes with a level indicator so you are given plenty of notice when you need to empty the collector. Also it takes the guesswork out of the task and saves time.


Practicalities

Well what can I say about practicalities? Hyundai do this so well, they have packed this mower with features that are going to help you get the lawn cut as quickly and easily as possible. For starters this a 4 different cutting options including mulching, it has the fantastic Hyundai IC200V engine that performs so well and is easy to maintain and start, it can be folded down for reduced storage and transportation and so much more…

Hyundai have even included a convenient garden hose connector so you can easily clean the underside of the deck and blade by running the machine with the garden hose connected. Another feature to make your life easier.

Just like most of the Hyundai petrol mowers, this Hyundai HYM510SP needs no tools to assemble (see video above) and spare parts and support are readily available here in the UK.


Power System / Engine

Hyundai HYM510SP Engine

The Hyundai HYM510SP self propelled lawn mower is provided with the ever popular Hyundai 173cc IC175VE engine that includes Smart Cut and Hyundai OHV 4-stroke 173cc Euro II. The engine is started via a recoil start as there is no electric start on this model.

This is a popular low emission and low maintenance engine that is used in many Hyundai petrol mowers and has proved to be a reliable and trustworthy choice.

The engine is low noise, easy starting, low fuel consumption which means that you are keeping the running costs low.


Roller (Stripes) 

As with most petrol lawn mowers there is no rear roller included to provide you with the striped lawn finish.

If stripes in your lawn are an absolute must, then Hyundai do make a range of petrol mower that do have a rear roller for that striped finish – you can see my reviews of these mowers here.

Hyundai HYM480SPR

Hyundai HYM530SPER

 


Mulching

This Hyundai HYM510SP does come supplied with a mulching plug, providing an additional feature to the 4-in-1 cutting options.

This really does make this mower an all-rounder as a mulching plug is an optional extra or simply not available on most petrol mowers, nice one Hyundai!


Safety Features

Hyundai takes safety seriously, and this can be seen in the Hyundai HYM510SP. Features include a starter button that can be removed from the mower to ensure that the mower cannot be started, which makes it child proof. Also as mentioned above this mower has an Operator Presence Control system to ensure if you let go of the handle the engine will stop running. This is another great safety feature from Hyundai.


Hyundai HYM510SP Pros Cons

Pros:

  • Easy to start
  • Rear/side discharge and mulching
  • Choice of 4 self-propulsion speeds
  • Easy cutting height adjustment
  • Low maintenance
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Comfortable, ergonomic and easy to operate
  • Large 70 litre grass box

Cons:

  • No electric push button start
  • Single speed self propelled

Conclusion

This Hyundai HYM510SP is a fantastic all round mower for those looking for the freedom and power of a petrol lawn mower. This mower comes with added benefit of features that will actually help to make mowing your lawn that much more enjoyable. Combine the added features of the easy recoil start, low noise, reliability and power of Hyundai engines, great range of height settings…. Oh, did I mention the 4-in-1 cutting options?

You will not be disappointed with this petrol lawn mower from Hyundai and it will most certainly be a great choice and provide many years of happy mowing!
