Part 2: Oleo Mac G53-VK Self Propelled Lawn mower review

Oleo-Mac G53-VK All Road Plus-4 Lawn Mower

Key Features in Summary:

Mow width is 51cm
Grass collection size 70L
Variable Speed Drive options
Speed levels 2.5 to 4.5km/hr
Engine 196cc 48HP power
Self-propelled drive support
Emak K800 power-pack
Forced air-cooling durability
6 mow heights 2.8 to 7.5cm
Recoil starting system
Warranty is 5 years long

Pros to be Noted:

  • This lawnmower is certainly our favourite under the Oleo Mac brand so if you are seeking the best possible solution with superior power, then you don’t need to look much further than this in our opinion.
  • The level of power you get at 196cc 48HP is great to have and it really does cut through heavy lumps of thick grass with so much ease – a pleasure to work with.
  • The fact that this machine is self-propelled and has a variable speed setting is also a great addition to have especially if the grass is lighter and you want to move around the lawn that bit faster.
  • There is lots of flexibility when using this lawnmower as you can either rear collect, side discharge, rear discharge or mulch and they all worked fine with no problems experienced.
  • Starting the machine worked exactly as expected with the recoil and the level of noise is more or less on par with other petrol lawnmowers we have used in the past. We also like the fact that the handlebar is adjustable here which can be adjusted for taller people to reduce potential backaches.
  • The grass collection unit is made of good quality materials and it can hold a decent amount of clippings which in turn reduces the amount of time you need to go emptying at the compost heap.
  • Many other brands only offer 2 or 3 years warranty but this brand offers you a longer 5 year warranty which certainly goes a long way when it comes to protecting your investment well into the future.

Cons to be Noted:

  • While this model works great starting off with no issues to report, it is still relatively untested over longer periods – more time is needed to see if it will serve its purpose as expected over the next few seasons
  • The price here is generally the most expensive under this brand so you need to be prepared to pay extra for the extra power and features you are getting
  • Ongoing fuel, oil, service and maintenance costs need to be factored in as well – plus the deck could be wider at just 51cm (approx. 21 inches)

Price Guide: £450 to £550 @ Mow Direct UK

Part 5: Conclusion and Optional Feedback

Which lawnmower from Oleo-Mac do we recommend in particular? After working these lawnmowers, our own personal preference would definitely have to be the Oleo-Mac G53-VK All Road Plus-4 Lawnmower with the 51cm mow width, self-propelled support and also the variable speed functionality which is great to have when it comes to different types of terrain, mow heights and grass density. If time is against you and the lawn just needs a quick once over, then the variable speed here works a treat as you really can get the job done a whole lot faster.

We would have preferred the mowing deck to a bit wider but the level of power you get here more than makes up for it. While this brand of lawnmowers remains relatively untested from what I can see, it certainly started off as good as we had expected but more time would be needed to check that it can work as well as it can for the seasons ahead. For now though, we have no hesitation in recommending it.
