Hyundai HYM510SPE Review – 173 cc Self Propelled Electric Push Button Start Petrol Lawn Mower

Hyundai HYM510SPE Overview

The Hyundai HYM510SPE is a powerful self propelled petrol lawn mower that is fitted with 2019 Hyundai 139cc 4 stroke engine. The HYM510SPE mower can be started either via the electric start or the backup recoil starter. Hyundai HYM510SPE has a large sized blade and deck size at 51cm and is designed for medium to large gardens. A huge 70 litre grass collection box is supplied and the height of the Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 HYM510SPE Review

The Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 an electric push-button start so no need to pull on a recoil starter. It does have a recoil starter just as a backup. Cutting height is quick and easy to adjust via a simple lever. There are 6 height options from 25mm to 75mm for a perfect cut.

The 51cm cutting width and a huge 70 L grass box on the Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 and put on.

The HYM510SPE 173 cc 3.6KW mower is durable, powerful and suitable for medium to large sized gardens. As we have come to expect from Hyundai, the motor is reliable, light on fuel and eco-friendly.

Assembly is tool-free and a simple process. The handles fold back easily for transportation or storage. When in use, they are both strong and comfortable.

This model also features a rear discharge or side discharge chute as well as a mulching plug. It has a hose connection to quickly and effectively clean the deck after use.

Another great advantage of the Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 HYM510SPE Features:

Hyundai HYM510SPE Review
  • Electric push button start (with recoil starter backup)
  • Self propelled with 4-speed settings
  • Powerful 173 cc engine
  • 4-in-1 cutting features
  • Low emission
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Reliable motor
  • Good build quality with quality components
  • Large 70 L easy release grass box
  • OPC safety lever
  • Easy height adjustment

Cutting Diameter and Features

The Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 and something that is missing from other brands of petrol mower or is an optional extra. Not with this Hyundai HYM510SPE, 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. This improves your lawns condition and appearance whilst saving you time.

There is a rear discharge and side chute whereby the grass clippings are blown out of the back or side of the mower onto your lawn, where they can be left to break down naturally. Remember when using the rear discharge, make sure you are not cutting grass that is too long, otherwise you will be left with lines/bales of grass that are not ideal for the lawn’s condition. Rear and side discharge works well on shorter grass and if you ensure you stick to the 1/3 rule (only cut 1/3 from the height of your grass).

The cutting diameter is classed as a large sized 51cm cutting width/blade. This will ensure fewer passes as you are covering wider area of your lawn.

Height Adjustment

An important feature of any mower is the number and range of height adjustments and this Hyundai HYM510SPE does not disappoint. Also, I have tested so many mowers in the past where the height adjustment is awkward and difficult to use. Again, not with this mower. The height is adjusted from a central lever that adjusts all 4 wheels easily and quickly. There are 6 height positions ranging from 25mm to 75mm. Is this better than its competitors? Well, no not really. This number and range of height adjustments are about normal for a petrol mower of this size.

Having a good range of cutting height will help you to cut varying lengths and condition of lawn no matter what the season.

Hyundai HYM510SPE Review

Self Propelled Drive

This Hyundai HYM510SPE is the self propelled version of this mower and has a variable 4 speeds that drive the larger rear wheels. 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. Added to this, with its large 70 litre grass box there is no need to stop so often, getting the job done quickly and effortlessly!

Grass Box Capacity

The 70 Litre grass collector on this Hyundai HYM510SPE 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.

This is a large collection box, and one thing to bear in mind is, an almost full 70 litre collection box will add to the weight of the mower, especially if the grass is damp. Therefore you may not want to utilise the full capacity of this grass collection bag and empty more frequently.

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 has 4 different cutting options including mulching, it has the fantastic Hyundai IC200V engine that performs so well and is easy to maintain and start. The handles 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 a garden hose connected. Another feature to make your life easier.

As mentioned above, the soft grip handles fold forward and flat, and the grass collection bag folds flat for reduced storage and makes transportation easier.

Remember, this is the SPE version of this mower, meaning you are paying a little more to have the Electric push start button. The Hyundai HYM510SP is also available with recoil start only. I have never had a problem recoil starting a Hyundai engine, so you will need to decide if it’s worth paying a little more for this feature. Please note, the Hyundai HYM510SP also does not have the variable 4 speeds, apart from these two difference the mowers are identical.

I have created a handy table below so you can see the difference between these two models.

Hyundai HYM510SPE Review

The Hyundai HYM510SPE 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 can be easily started via the electric push button start but also has a recoil start backup.

This is a popular low emission & 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 you simply have to have stripes in your lawn, 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.

Mulching

Great News!! This Hyundai HYM510SPE does come supplied with a mulching plug, providing an additional feature to the 4-in-1 cutting options.

Mulching is becoming ever more popular, and to have it featured on this already feature rich lawn mover is one of the main reasons, it is one of our top rated petrol lawn mowers.

To learn more about the benefits of a mower that has the ability to mulch the lawn, please see my article “The Benefits of Mulching Grass – Complete Guide with Pros & Cons“.


Safety Features

The Hyundai HYM510SPE has good safety features whereby the starter button 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. All petrol mowers will have at least the OPC safety system.

  • Easy to start
  • Rear/side discharge and mulching
  • Choice of 4 self propulsion speeds
  • Easy cutting height adjustment
  • Low maintenance
  • Low fuel consumption
