Not as good as previous model
Bought this to replace the previous model which I donated to family. Wish I had kept the previous model as started first time every time. Had a fuel primer and worked each time. This model does not have the fuel primer and takes about 3 attempts to get to work which is disappointing. Mows ok when finally working and good catcher
Thumbs Up Victa
Easy assemble - lightweight - easy on the juice - nice cut - easy to manoeuvre - recommend to female users - light to lift if service required - didn't go the mulcher not really necessary unless lawn maintenance is your job - great price and service at Bunnings - just fun to use - well done Victa.
Simple, reliable and effective
Had it 3 years now and still starts first time every time.
I expect it to last another 20 years as its built simply and well.
I was going to get the mulching version but really I don't see the need for it
Simple and effective at what it does.
Looks good and starts every time first time.
Briggs and stratton motor for reliability.
Has a nice cut with several different lengths/ levels with a large catcher.
It is light, easy to push, and fuel efficient.
I would recommend to people with a small plot of land, courtyard or backyard.
Great little grass cutter
This mower does an excellent job or cutting our grass and the weeds and grass are channeled into the catcher. It is a heavier mower but built to last. Our last Victa lasted us 24 years and when we gave it away, it still worked. This new one is easy to use and gives a clean finish to our lawn.
The best mower I have owned, and when you start it up you know that you will get a clean cut, even lawn
1 click to start and away you go, easy to steer and it just glides over your lawn giving an even cut that won't damage the grass [ when at correct cutting height]
When finished just hose it down and it's ready for next time
Great value when put up against other brands and with Victa you know you're getting a top of the range mower, trusted and proven for many years in the past
Trouble some bit of junk sometimes
Yea all good now I've got something in my head when I first bought it she usta run 4 about 20 -25 mins then blow u jack it would stop just had a go & have a smoke or something then away we go again 4 another 20 mins long an short was a pain in the head if you know what I mean anyhow I took it back 2 bunnings under warranty long and short stiff sir anyhow I started a new habit then when emptying the grass catcher let her stop & lo & behold that stops the prob. The main reason I bought it was because of the briggs & Stratton mill the previous 1 I...had b/4 was a massport which lasted 18 years as far as I can remember long and short practicaly did everything an ok but there you go I think I've figured out why this new 1 karks it now I think it has a spark resistor setup the must be crook long and short as already stated the stopping her 2 empty the grass tray stops the problem the only hassle is I will probably wear out the starter string a bit quicker than the massport but there you go.
best lawn mower I ever bought
I bought this mower because it is light weight and easy to get around it cuts well starts every time with one go i would buy another if I needed good for the older folk it is easy to clean and it is a good size to store in a small shed or laundry
It feels like it is built to last however this makes it quite heavy so can be difficult to manoeuvre. Starts first every time, cuts well and catcher holds a reasonable amount of cuttings. An all round good lawn mower without the unnessary bells and whistles.
We looked at other options but at the end of the day we just wanted a reliable brand that cut grass.
Love it, easy to start
This victa mower is very very good . A dream to get started either from cold to hot . Just prime a couple of times and one pull and away you go . Easy to adjust the height and leaves the lawn looking fantastic . I don't use the catcher though, its a bit small.
So far pretty good
I've bought this for about 7 month. It's small and compact so it doesn't take up too much space in our small garage. Easy to start and haven't had any issues or problems with the lawn mower. It's light as well so I can move it easily between front yard lawn and the back. Recommended if you have a small patch of lawn and limited garage space.
i would like to recommend it highly..its good. Really easy to clean its basket and it takes only 5 minutes to mower my 84sqm lawn. its very quick. i was scared earlier to spend this much money on my lawn mower but later happy with the quality of this.as my hubby enjoys now mowing lawn with victa. we bought it from bunnings.. love it.
So far so good
Bought this for my father-in-law about 6 months ago and so far, so good! He uses it monthly to mow the lawns both front and backyard of my house and his and he hasn't run into any troubles yet. Bought it on special for about $500 from Bunnings which I think is reasonable for a lawn mower.
we got this from our local bunnings shop after looking around at many other lawn mowers. very happy with this product as it works amazingly. even on cold days its easy to start and does the job perfectly. couldnt have asked for a better buy for the price we paid.
Victa brand name destroyed by sale to B&S
We purchased one of these this afternoon at 2pm. it failed to start. It will be returned to Bunnings tomorrow for replacement. Hopefully we can get one of the 10% of B&S Engines that work. The Victa name has been grossly degraded by the sale to American Crap producer Briggs and Stratton!!
Victa Australian made ha ha just a joke
Do not buy this lawn mower. I bought the classic from Bunnings in October 2016 and already the wheels are bald. After a drive to Bunnings to discuss the problem they informed me I need to go to a lawn mower company for complaints. I spoke to the man who called Victa who informed me that tyres are not under warranty. I mower less than 6 months old doing little work is just a bucket of junk. Once again do not touch this company made in usa tyres no idea where. If you want a good cheap mower buy a Sani.
March 31st 2017 Update: first time i sa...w tyres going bald on grass rubbish rubbish as the title tells you and guess what? Victa does not want o know about it.the mower claims to me made in usa so what it is rubbish no power parts on the cover keeps falling of. guess what victa does not want to know about it so why deal with them.My main complaint was the tyres completely bald ad I am mowing a very small yard . I bought it from Bunnings but they do not handle the warranty issues. I waste time going to the registered warranty dealer who was very nice made the call but Mr Victa said No Play Once again you have been warned.
what a disappointment!!
been repaired 3 times... used only 12 times in 2 years..
currently dead as it gets oil in the carburettor and it just wont go...
worst mower ever... I have had a Victor 2 stroke before and it was excellent... very reluctant to buy another as I live in a regional area and cant get any support from Victor
Victa classic cut from Bunnings
Worst mower ever. Had the first one replaced. This one now 6 months old, blowing smoke, popping and running rough. New filter, spark plug, oil and fuel, and still the same. Not happy! Bunnings replaced the first one because I threw a tantrum. What this time? Why offer a warranty if you can't return the product to the store of purchase.
Questions & Answers
What petrol do u use
I have a 500m2 grass and that is usually just under one tank full of fuel. I use the cheap stuff from the fuel station. If you only have a small yard and it would be sitting in the mower tank or petrol can. I would suggest going with 95 petrol. It has a much longer shelf life when sitting for long periods of time. For me the cheap stuff works because I use it straight away. I mow my yard one to two times a week. Love the mower and it never fails me.
