Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive Rear Roller Petrol Lawnmower | 560

  • Product Details

    Hayter are recognised as one of the pioneers of the modern rotary mower, and to this day continue to produce high quality machines appreciated by homeowners and professional contractors alike. The Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive is among the largest pedestrian rear roller rotary mowers produced by Hayter, precision engineered to make it easy to achieve an immaculate finish on larger domestic lawns.

    Designed and manufactured in the UK, the Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive rear roller lawnmower is powered by an efficient Briggs & Stratton 850 Ex SeriesEcoPluspetrolengine, with an integrated ReadyStart® system eliminating the need to prime or choke the engine before use. This potent engine works to drive both the rotary cutting blade and the mower’s self-propulsion system, featuring adjustable forward speed settings (1.5mph-3mph), making tackling even the largest lawns eminently manageable. The mower also features Hayter’s unique friction disc to help protect against engine crankshaft damage should you accidentally run into a solid object while mowing, backed up by a lifetime guarantee against engine crankshaft damage.

    The Hayter Harrier 56 Autodrive is also remarkable in terms of the durability of its construction. The die-cast aluminium deck, for example, is provides resistance against corrosion and extends beyond the wheelbase to make it easier to mow around edges and borders. The ABS under-deck liner, meanwhile, is both tough and integrates front-mounted enhancement fins to lift horizontal grass while cutting. Moreover, enviable performance and versatility are also guaranteed by features such as a seventy litre easy-to-empty grass bag, foldable handlebars for easy storage, and a selection of eight cutting heights (13mm-60mm) controlled via a single counter-balanced lever system.

    The 560 has been superceeded by the 574.

    About Hayter
    The name Hayter, in garden machinery circles, goes back over 60 years to 1946 when Douglas Hayter produced his first rotary lawn mower and subsequently sold it to Ipswich Town the following year. Here, the Hayter lawnmower was born. From this point, the company has gone from strength to strength with an ever-increasing portfolio of lawn maintenance equipment that is used by both professionals and domestic gardeners. Uniquely, much of the Hayter lawnmower range is still British made, with a healthy workforce gainfully employed at the company headquarters in Spellbrook, near Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire.

    With a Royal Warrant to protect, quality standards need to be kept at a premium and this is never more evident than with the Hayter Harrier range of rear roller rotary petrol lawnmowers that have set the standard for this type of machine for over 2 decades. The company has not forsaken traditional skills with the advent of computer-aided design, but has instead combined both, with the resultant Hayter lawnmower products some of the finest garden maintenance and grass care equipment available today.
