What are the main features of the Webb Supreme 53cm petrol mower?

This self-propelled petrol mower has a powerful 163cc engine and a wide 53cm cutting width. The pull start has an auto choke for easier starting and there’s a choice of seven different heights of cut – 25mm-75mm, simply adjusted by a single lever. Grass can be collected in a mesh bag with a large 70L capacity or discharged at the rear or at the side plus it has a mulching plug that allows chopped grass to fall on the surface where it breaks down and feeds the soil. All of these options are accessed via easy-to-fit accessories. A sturdy steel deck has a washing port so you can clean out clumps of grass easily.

What is the Webb Supreme 53cm petrol mower like to use?

This mower has easy to use features and accessories and is extremely versatile and simple to use. A large cutting width helps it mow grass quickly and the large collecting bag means there’s less to-ing and fro-ing to the compost heap. Despite its size it handles and manoeuvres well, with soft grip handles for comfort plus, it’s self-propelled, which makes it easier to tackle slopes and rough ground. The only downside is that it’s noisier than most of the other mowers in our test.

Is the Webb Supreme 53cm petrol mower easy to store?

It's a reasonable size but the Webb is easy to turn and manoeuvre around the garden and back into the shed. Foldable handles help it take up less room in storage, as does the mesh bag which can simply be detached and laid on top of the deck.

Is the Webb Supreme 53cm petrol mower good value for money?

This is a high performing, well thought out mower with a lot of easy to use features. It's competitively priced with a two-year warranty and we think it’s excellent value for money.
