P1PE P5100SPE Review

Position One Power Equipment or P1PE have created a solid quality lawn mower and fitted it with a reliable powerful 173cc 6 hp engine. It has a convenient and reliable electric starter and uses a key start for added security. There is a recoil starter in case the battery on the starter is flat. This mower with a wide 51cm (21″) cutting width is designed for medium to large lawns, has the ability to Mulch and side discharge and is self-propelled to get you around quickly and easily. The P1PE P5100SPE has rear-wheel drive and will cope well with inclines or banks.

The P5100 SPE gives you four cutting choices being the standard cut and collect, cut and drop, cut and side discharge or cut and mulch. The grass collection box is one of the largest on the market at 60 Litres.

As with most quality mowers, the handles are extremely comfortable and folds away easily for compact storage.

The P5100 SPE has good spares and parts backup and comes with a 2-year warranty from P1PE. Another benefit of this P1PE P5100SPE mower is that it operates without too much noise.

The P1PE P5100SPE has a good 51cm cutting width so is great on larger gardens. It has a respectable 1.1 L fuel tank and the engine is fuel efficient. You can select from 7 cutting heights from 25mm up to 85mm. The adjustment lever is quick and easy to change.

  1. great machine but a complete lack of vision by the designer.
    firstly, the mulch plug is on the rear flap and leaves a large cavity (140x130x90) that cut grass fills. it then builds up a lump of grass which then falls and drops and leaves a clump behind it that needs to be recut on the next turn. this cuts the cutting size from 21″ to 16″ as you need to overlap.
    as you say, there is no forward speed adjustment as the drive is run, by belt, from the blade to the rear wheels. there is also a build up of grass around the belt cover as it leaves corners for the grass to settle into.
    lastly, the hose fitting is a waste of time as it does not clean the underside of the machine. they have tested it with already cut and dried grass and not with live moist grass which sticks to the casing.

  2. Can the throttle be used to give any speed adjustment? Just a bit worried it will be slightly too fast or slow. It looks so similar to the Hyundai 510SPE except for the speed adjuster. Is it the same engine too?
    The similar one with the B&S engine doesn’t seem to have electric start though – so not quite an alternative if you need that function?
    Also, some things I read say the battery needs charging every so often by plugging in and others say it ‘self charges’ – which is it? Is the battery easily removed to do this if needed?
    Thanks, great review.

    1. Hi Steve

      No speed adjustment on this one and yes this model and the 510SPE do use the same engine – model IC200VE.

      The battery would need to be charged. The battery does not come come away from the machine and has got a cable that plugs into the machine so it would need to be next to a power source while charging.

      Before use, it would need to be charged for around 5 hours beforehand and then you would get on average around 10 uses out of the battery per charge.

      Hope this helps

      1. Many thanks Mark.
        I was hoping the throttle gave a little speed adjustment (the one it’s replacing has a hare symbol one end and a tortoise the other :-) ) – not an ‘all or nothing’ lever like I assume this one is.
        Other than the extra year’s warranty and the speed lever, this looks identical to the Hyundai 510SPE and is sold for less as it’s by P1/Genpower ‘badge’.
        I really like the option pullcord for when the battery could be flat.
        Thanks again!
