Webb 42cm Petrol Lawn Mower Review

Webb Petrol Mower Spec ImageThe Best Petrol Lawn Mower With a Roller?

A reliable workhorse of a mower fitted with a 500 series Briggs and Stratton Engine, the Webb R17 petrol lawn mower is the perfect tool for achieving well defined lawn stripes on medium to large lawns thanks to it’s rear roller.

With a 42cm cutting width this is a mower to suit most larger lawns, and a large 60 litre grass collection bag will mean less time spent emptying, and more time spent creating the perfect stripes. At 35 kg this a fairly light for a petrol lawn mower, but not so light that you won’t be able to create the well defined stripes you so desire. Plus as it’s self propelled the weight will be of little concern to you anyway, you can spend your time guiding the mower just where you want it to go

The top quality construction of this mower is matched by its versatility, coming complete with a mulch plug so that you can return the grass clippings to the lawn if you choose to cut on a regular basis

The Best Lawn Mower For Stripes

Somewhat unusually the real wheels found on most mowers have been abandoned in favour of the roller alone, this helps particularly to keep a close eye on what you are doing as you mow each stripe, you can look directly below you and see the edges of the stripe in real time as the roller creates it, your view unobstructed by wheels. For this reason we consider this machine one of the best lawn mowers for creating stripes currently on the market.


  • Quality construction – High impact ABS deck will not be subject to corrosion of denting unlike metal decks
  • Trusted and reliable Briggs and Stratton engine
  • Large collection bag, decent cutting width and range of cutting heights
  • Mulch plug included


  • Weight may not be substantial enough to achieve the best quality lawn stripes
  • Does not come with instruction manual for mower, only engine. This may cause some confusion during initial assembly


This is a quality machine with real emphasis on usability. It’s not the lightest mower on the market, so it’s just as well that it’s self propelled. Once you get used to this feature, this mower is a real pleasure to use.
