Fantastic

published

We are very happy with our Vitca electric lawn mover. It is easy to use, quite and is better than my mums petrol mover. We find the battery lasts about 30 minutes. We charge the batteries during off peak. We have since bought a wipper snipper which included a second battery and a leaf blower without out a battery. These are also great products. We find having the two batteries is perfect.

Purchased in November 2021.

Electrifying the Back Yard with a First Class Mower

published

What a treat and beats all 2 and 4 stroke petrol predecessors by a mile - quiet, simple to use, well designed and rugged, energy efficient, and provides an excellent cut to our buffalo lawn. For a back and front yard and a nature strip, plenty of energy in the battery. Complements a solar powered home magnificently as it costs me nothing to charge the battery during the day.

Purchased in February 2021 at Bunnings Warehouse for $489.00.

Not as good as I had hoped

published

Lawn mower is great on absolutely dry grass but not great on grass that is the slightest bit damp. The schute through to the catcher blocks very quickly. I would probably get 10m and have to unblock then another 10m.....
The motor is certainly nowhere near as powerful as a petrol engine, so in summary, it's ok but not a star performer which is a shame for Victa.

It's a real lawnmower!

published

Batteries are the future of lawn and garden care, if this is anything to go by. Wifey loves the fact that she doesn't have to kill herself trying to pull start a petrol motor. The steel deck is good'n'tough. It gets through the bulk of our 150m2 Queensland lawn in 1 shift, then a 30 min drinks break whilst it recharges, and then a nice finish off cut. I'd give it 5 stars if the battery went for longer.

Perfect mower for ease of use

published

This mower is easy to manoeuvre especially for someone with a small build like myself. I especially love that no petrol is needed and so it is environmentally sound with no bad fumes being inhaled. Leaves grass looking well manicured.....our land isn’t the easiest land to mow and yet we do with ease with this one.

High quality and good value

published

Well built and has a far superior power output compared to most other electric mowers on the market. The base is steel not plastic. This, together with the powerful battery, really distinguish this mower from the plastic toy alternatives. I know because I had a plastic junk mower (Baume) prior to buying the Victa. The battery lasts long enough to get a good sized lawn done and the mower doesn't conk out in heavy grass.

The catcher is large and easy to use.

Battery charges quickly as well.

How does this mower get 5 star reviews??!!

published

I bought this mower after talking to the Victa rep at Bunnings. I decided I wanted battery model after owning a corded Ozito which after 2 Years finally died. I have had an immaculate lawn for 2 years running the cheapest plastic mower but the cut quality on this mower is aweful in comparison. I payed $500 to be cord free but now suffer a terrible cut. Complained to Victa through their website but absolutely no response. One star from me and that’s for being cordless sorry really doesn’t deserve more.

Date PurchasedDec 2018

I’m converted. This is the future of lawn care.

published

What a cracking mower. When making my decision at Bunnings I looked at all their options. Most looked like little kids toys, it came down to 3 brands AEG, Dewalt and Victa. These 3 all looked like would do the job, I wanted a metal base over the plastic it just sits better across the terrain. Motor power and battery performance was the next consideration, the Victa at $499 was atleast $250 cheaper and seemed to be on par. First use I was super impressed with performance and how quiet it was. I’m so glad I’m converted to cordless rather than a smelly petrol mower. I’d highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a cordless mower.

Great Mower. Better than Petrol

published

Wow! So happy I made the decision to buy this mower. For under 500 bucks it’s the best value battery operated mower out there imo. Like all other reviewers I can’t say much more about how good it is and how simple to use and operate. Mowing used to be a chore, now it’s as simple as doing the vacuuming. If you’re considering buying this mower...just do it, you’ll be impressed!

Beyond expectation

published

I am Super happy with this cordless mulcher mower! It is so very lightweight very easy to maneuver, battery lasts the distance, even the battery doesn't take long to fully charge up again either .... mulcher is fantastic ! couldn't even tell I was mowing without the catcher! I truly am super impressed, didn't expect this outcome at all!

Excellent value for money

published

I have had the 21 inch version for about 18 months as well as all the other tools. I continue to be impressed with the performance of all the tools but the 21 inch mower does drag badly on thick lawn. The smaller and lighter 18 inch version has a lot less drag so it better for our thicker buffalo lawn and the tighter areas. It is also more "Victa-like" with swinging blades so better for tough mowing.

This gear deserves to sell a lot better than it does.

Great Mower

published

Used this mower was last weekend. First impressions are that the mower is
1) Wheels are a good size and give good grip even when on a slope.
2) Battery lasted for large backyard. Only 1/2 hour charge and did front including large nature strip.
3) Mower changed up when it encountered long / tough grass but took a while to realise the extra load. But more powerful when it is needed.
4) Catcher fitted in really well compared to my old (petrol) mower which was a bulky unit with a narrow throat which blocked up a lot of the time
5) Build quality looks excellent
6) Easier to operate than petro - it's lighter, easier to start and quieter when running.
Would recommend to anyone.

Why has Bunnings pulled the victa 82v electric mower from sale?

Peter, hopefully the Briggs and Stratton team (owners of the Victa brand) can answer this question directly, but my understanding is that has been some problems with a recent batch of batteries. I have been advised that those existing customers with fully operating units have no reason for concern. My mower is working perfectly with no battery issues whatsoever.

I agree mine is working perfectly and glad I didn't buy another brand

Should I still want one after not being able to buy one at Bunnings as I was told it had been recalled ?

AngusM

I have personally contacted the manufacturer at 1800 356 632 today to inquire what might be the problem and have been informed that there is a batch problem with some of the batteries. I was also informed that if my mower is working ok, the battery is fine and I have no reason to be concerned. This product is truly well worth purchasing (has exceeded my expectations) and if you can continue liaising with the manufacturer and/or your local Bunnings store, it would be worth waiting (hopefully only for a short while) until you are able to purchase a product with the battery working 100% ok

I probably have a different view to Angus. I am a bit disappointed with the Victa because the exit shot blocks quickly with even slightly damp grass so would be inclined to try another brand. Ryobi seems to be liked by a friend but I haven't tried it

HaneyF

I bought mine about a month ago and very happy with it. I often cut wet grass and have no problem. I use one battery and take a 30 minute breather while it recharges because I have such a big backyard. I’d say persist with the manufacture because it’s a great product. You’ll love it too

Ken M.asked

When I went to pick one up from Bunnings they gave my money back and said it had been recalled ..... knowing that should I try and find one somewhere or pick another ?
