Treat your garden like royalty with a Mountfield Princess

Mountfield have a great range of electric lawnmowers that are lightweight, quiet, and easy to use, and the Princess 42 is one of their most popular choices. The lawnmower has a 42 cm cutting width and a 15 metre electric cable, making it suitable for smaller domestic lawns up to 15m2.

Electricity is more economical and environmental friendly compared to petrol

The Princess 42 has a powerful 1800 Watt mains electric motor. Electric lawnmowers have numerous benefits: there is no need to change spark plugs, fuel filters, or oil, and there's no need to refuel, saving time and money. Electric machines also better for the environment, emitting zero harmful emissions.

A superb cutting performance...

For the perfect cut, there are 6 preset cutting heights ranging from 25 mm - 75mm to choose from; to select a height of cut, you simply adjust a single lever which is allocated on the side of the machine. It is also fitted with a rear roller between the rear wheels, to give a desirable striped finish to your lawn when cutting on a lower cutting height. This lawnmower also features a safety brake to ensure the blade stops rotating within 3 seconds of the user releasing the switch. 

...however you choose to cut: collect, discharge, or mulch

The Princess 42 boasts a 50 Litre grass collector if you wish to collect the grass cuttings- or without if you wish to leave them on the lawn, the grass deflector flap directs the grass clippings down if desired. The lawnmower can also be used as a mulching mower using the mulch plug supplied, to finely shred clippings and almost invisibly disperse them onto the ground, acting as a natural fertiliser.

Very good machine for the price. Cuts well. Slightly heavier than my old electric machine. Height adjuster could be better quality but overall a good machine. Would recommend. (Professional gardener Edinburgh)

After 21 years using our Mountfield Princess 14 we finally decided that we needed an upgrade so purchased a new Mountfield 42. The larger size and stronger motor certainly make cutting the grass easier whilst the anti-scalp design is a real plus. Assembly was quick and easy and we are so far very pleased with our new Mountfield - if it lasts anywhere near as long as our old one (which we have kept as a back up!) we'll be more than happy!

I have used Mountfield Princess electric lawnmowers for 35 years. They are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. This is the first time i have had a 'non metal' one. It seems to be quite robust and well made, but have only used it 3 times so far. The only problem i have with it and any other modern lawnmowers that i have looked at, is that the lowest cut is only down to 2.5 cm whereas my old model Princesses were lower. It makes a huge difference in the end appearance of the lawn if it were cut just a tiny bit lower, but that is personal preference. I would always recommend this model to anyone who cannot manage to push a heavier machine and can manage with the trailing electric wire. Would have had 5 stars if it were not for the lack of an extra 1 - 0.5 cm cut.
