Summary of the Hyundai HYM530SPER :

Hyundai HYM530SPER Review

The Hyundai HYM530SPER is a self propelled rear wheel drive petrol lawn mower that has a powerful 3.6kW Hyundai OHV 4-stroke 173cc Euro 5 engine with an electric start and recoil start backup. This mower designed for large sized lawns offers many features including wide 52.5cm cutting width, full width split ribbed roller for that traditional British striped lawn, 5 easy single lever cutting height options from 25mm to 75mm and a large 70 litre polypropylene/polyester fabric grass catcher bag. This extremely economic and low maintenance mower offers rear discharge or cut and collect and lawn striping options, deck cleaning connector for easy cleaning and has been built with high quality parts, as you would expect from Hyundai. This mower comes complete with a 3 year Hyundai platinum warranty.

As Hyundai petrol lawn mowers have been successful with their reliable and durable range of garden tools including lawn mowers they have many different types and sizes currently on the market to choose from. The Hyundai HYM530SPER is the biggest brother in the xx self propelled petrol mower family. It is larger and more powerful than the smaller brothers HYM480SPR (48cm deck) and HYM510SPE (51cm deck), and therefore suitable for even larger lawns. Below I have included a comparison table where you can quickly and easily see all the main differences.

In this Hyundai HYM530SPER self propelled lawn mower review, I will take you through all the features and functions of this mower so you know exactly what you are getting for your money.


Main Features of the Hyundai HYM530SPER 52.5cm Self Propelled Lawnmower

  • Rating: 9.7/10
  • Powerful 4 Stroke 173cc Petrol Engine
  • Full Width Rear Roller
  • Self Propelled
  • Rear Discharge and Cut and Collect
  • Low Emission & Low Maintenance Engine
  • Electric Start with Recoil Backup
  • 3 Year Warranty
  • Blade length: 52.5cm
  • Weight: 46kg
  • Number of Cutting Height: 5 (25mm to 75mm)
  • Grass box capacity: 70 Litre

The Hyundai HYM530SPER has OPC (Operator Presence Control) technology for additional safety that will ensure the mower stops if the handle is released. This 2-in-1 petrol mower has the ability to cut & collect or rear discharge the grass cuttings. Please note that mulching feature is not available with this model.


To give you a visual representation of the Hyundai HYM530SPER 52.5cm Self Propelled Lawnmower please watch the video below (please note that this video is of the slightly smaller Hyundai HYM460SPR mower):

Cutting Diameter and Features

The Hyundai HYM530SPER offers 2-in-1 precise cutting features – cut and collect + rear discharge.

  • Cut and collect – grass is cut and collected in the rear collection box.
  • Rear discharge – grass is cut and discharged from the rear of the mower.

The mower comes with a split ribbed rear drive roller that will produce that superior finish on your traditional striped lawn.

The rear discharge option blows the grass clippings out of the back of the mower onto your lawn, where they can be left to break down naturally providing nutrients to your lawn. This option is especially good when used on shorter grass, on grass that is too long it is likely to leave bales of grass behind that is not ideal. Simply use the 1/3 rule (only cut 1/3 from the height of your lawn) to maintain that healthy looking lawn that will make your neighbours jealous.

The superior 52.5cm steel rotary blade is perfect for large lawns over 450m² – this mower will make that job a breeze.

Height Adjustment

The Hyundai HYM530SPER has a single lever that conveniently and easily adjusts the 5 heights from 25mm to 75mm. These are respectable height adjustment options for petrol mowers, it allows the user to set the height according to the season and condition of the lawn. (some petrol mowers to only have 3 options!)


Self-Propelled Drive

This Hyundai HYM530SPER is self propelled from the rear roller and is controlled from the mounted handle control lever. The full width split roller will make manoeuvring in your garden easy, there will be no more rear wheels getting stuck in flower beds and scalping your lawn. This is a great feature from Hyundai and overtakes many mowers from other manufacturers.

The OPC (Operator Presence Control) technology ensures that the mower will not run off if the handle released. The self propelled drive operates at a continuous speed level, that again will make it easier to cut the grass over various lawn levels and assist when mowing up/down slopes.


Hyundai HYM530SPER Grass BoxGrass Box Capacity

This Hyundai HYM530SPER comes with a large 70 litre grass collection bag with a high airflow plastic top and aerated fabric sides.

The collection bag comes with a level indicator so you know exactly when it needs to be emptied.

Combination of both, having a large collection bag and a level indicator will ensure that you spend more time mowing and less time emptying. Again, something that will help tremendously.

Practicalities

In terms of practicalities, there are many features we need to mention. For starters the 2-in-1 cutting feature on the HYM530SPER ensures that you can choose from cut and collect or side discharge. The ribbed rear powered roller that is 38cm wide will create perfect stripes on your lawn. The rear roller and good quality ball bearing large front wheels will increase stability and manoeuvrability round your garden.

Cleaning your mower is most probably not your top activity, but with this mower Hyundai has made this task really easy. You are able to attach a garden hose to the running machine that will easily clean the deck underneath – this will of course prolong the life of the blade and mower, but also save time. Not just a gimmick.

The mower has a durable and hard wearing steel deck, and cleverly Hyundai have added an easy to remove maintenance cover that will allow access to the enclosed drive belt.

The HYM530SPER comes with soft grip handles for comfort, they also fold forward and downward for easy storage and transportation.

Can it really be this good? Well, yes this is a fantastic powerful petrol self propelled lawn mower with high quality parts and rear roller! The only negative I can find it that it doesn’t have the ability to mulch. If mulching is something that is important to you than consider another model with a mulching plug such as the Hyundai HYM510SPE. I believe not including a mulching feature with this model is deliberate from Hyundai as this mower is for users that want a lawn that is cut short, looks great and they cut their lawn more regularly. Remember this mower has a rear roller that will produce superior cut and stripy lawn, so I don’t think the ability to mulch really fits well with the type of owner the Hyundai HYM530SPER is designed for.


Power System / Engine

Hyundai HYM530SPER Engine

The Hyundai HYM530SPER 52.5cm self propelled lawn mower is provided with the ever popular Hyundai 173cc 4-stroke Euro 5 OHV petrol engine that features low noise levels.

The fuel tank has a capacity of 1.5 litres and a speed rating of 2850rpm. Remember, this mower comes with the added advantage of electric start that is backed up with traditional recoil start method. This is a nice touch as not all petrol Hyundai mowers have this, as you can see from the comparison table below. This mower comes supplied with the charger to enable the electric push button start to function correctly. Don’t worry if you forget to charge as there is a recoil backup that can be used instead to get the mower started.

This is a popular low maintenance and low emission engine used in many Hyundai petrol mowers, it has proved to be a reliable and dependable option.

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

Hyundai HYM530SPER RollerRoller (Stripes)

Most petrol lawn mowers do not have a roller. However this Hyundai HYM530SPER 52.5cm self propelled lawn mower certainly does have a roller that offers some very useful advantages.

The rear roller covers the full width of the 38cm deck and as well as providing the traditional striped lawn that will make your neighbours envious, it also makes this mower very stable especially along borders (no more tipping into the boarder and scalping the edge). Most users would most probably think that having a roller makes this mower less manoeuvrable, however that is not the case. Hyundai have cleverly split the roller into two halves so this mower literally has an almost zero turning circle when tilted back; it is therefore ideal for manoeuvring around obstacles and tight corners. Hyundai have provided the smaller brothers of this mower with this amazing roller too – should you want a mower with a less powerful engine and smaller cutting width.


Safety Features

The Hyundai petrol mowers have a great safety record and this Hyundai HYM530SPER is no exception. Also as mentioned above this mower has an Operator Presence Control system so if you let go of the handle the engine will stop running. Combined with the rear roller for extra stability this petrol mower is as safe, if not safer, than any other mower. Remember, always wear appropriate clothing and footwear and follow the operating instructions.
