Mountfield's largest electric mower can tackle large gardens with ease.

An electric lawn mower lets you say goodbye to the hassles of petrol. No oil changes, no spark plug changes, no need to replace air filters or refuel. The only maintenance an electric lawn mower will need is a blade sharpened in the spring.

A supremely capable mower

With a  42cm cutting width, the Princess 42 is the largest mower in the Princess range. With such a large size comes increased capability, making it a match for 15m x 15m gardens. A lengthy 15m cable gives you the freedom to move and get the most out of the mower. The cutting height can be selected from one of six between 25 and 75mm.​ The defining feature of the Princess 42, however, is the 3 in 1 functionality. 

Versatile enough for a range of lawn types

At the users discretion it can collect the grass clippings in its large 50 litre collector, rear discharge the grass clippings with the rear grass deflector or mulch the grass clippings, using the mulching plug supplied with the mower - producing a natural fertiliser that keeps your grass looking fresh. This range of options really allows you to choose the perfect finish for your lawn and the time of year.

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.
