The R53S Recycling Mower has been designed with Hayter’s usual high standard of customer care and satisfaction in mind, with the same level of attention also directed towards the environment. Equipped with a 53cm steel cutting deck, this mower would be great for fine and informal lawns the size of half a tennis court or more. A height-of-cut lever mounted on each wheel, offering cutting heights ranging between 25mm and 114mm, provides maximum cutting flexibility.

This mower gives you the choice of three ways to dispose of grass clippings: rear collection, side discharge and recycling or ‘mulching’. Rear collection utilises the large capacity of the mower’s 54.5 litre grassbag, meaning you won’t need to stop and empty it too often, while a side discharge chute is useful when the grass is longer and tougher to cut, pushing the grass cuttings away from the cutting blade quickly to prevent it becoming clogged up. Mulching, meanwhile, helps you to maintain a healthy and green lawn; the mower re-circulates the grass clippings into a fine mulch and then returns them to the lawn, where they will decompose, providing moisture and nutrients for the soil as they break down.

As well as being great for the environment, the R53S also offers many benefits for the discerning gardener. Ease of use is ensured with an electric key-start, with power and performance guaranteed by the mower’s Briggs & Stratton 675 Series™ ReadyStart® engine and its Sens-a-Speed™ variable speed (0mph-4.7mph) Autodrive system, which adapts automatically to match your walking pace. The handlebars can also be adjusted to suit the height of the user, as well as raised to save on storage space; this is done via a foot-operated lever, so you won’t even need to bend down to make any adjustments. The grassbag can also be stored on the handlebars, which will keep it out of the way, and when in use, it simply lifts through the handlebars, making it easy to empty when it does get full. The mower is also furnished with full width, soft grip handlebars featuring OPC (Operator Presence Control), making it both more comfortable and safer to operate. Weight: 36kg.

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.
