The McCulloch M46-110R is a powerful petrol rotary lawn mower that will be a fine addition to most gardens. Capable of cutting through lawns of every size and condition, the M46-110R is a well-rounded mower that is especially convenient when used in larger gardens.

Despite being compact in size, the lawn mower isn’t lacking in punch. With a 46cm cutting width, it’s ideal for mowing medium and large sized lawns, although it can certainly do a job on smaller lawns too if needed. However, it’s likely unnecessary for smaller spaces, unless the grass is the challenge to mow.

When it comes to larger lawns though, the M46-110R truly shines. As a petrol-powered rotary mower, it’s got enough power to mow lawns regardless of their condition. This is especially useful for sloped lawns and lawns where the grass is thick, weeded, and frequently wet.

The cutting width is also helpful in large lawns. At 46cm, it’s wide enough to cover a good chunk of the lawn in a single passing, meaning fewer times over the lawn to mow the entire area. It’s even better in narrower lawns, reducing the amount of work by a good margin.

With built-in self-propulsion, the 110cc engine moves itself across the lawn, allowing for easier manoeuvrability. This is handy for anyone that normally struggles to move heavier equipment, as the M46-110R isn’t the lightest model available, weighing 30kg.

This is mainly down to the very robust body of the mower. It’s manufactured with heavy-duty steel, which provides a sturdy body that won’t deteriorate over time. In fact, the build of the unit is so strong that it won’t be a shock to see the M46-110R last for many years, if not decades.

Despite the strong build, the self-propulsion feature makes the M46-110R easy to operate while still enjoying the benefits of its raw power. The body is also collapsible for easier storage, with the handle folding inwards to create a compact unit.

There is a total of six cutting heights, which is a great feature for those passionate about lawn maintenance. The more cutting heights a mower offers, the easier it is to get the perfect cutting height throughout the year to produce a healthy, vibrant lawn.

For instance, it is never recommended you cut more than a third of a lawn’s length in single mow. This can have a detrimental effect on the growth of the lawn, leaving it looking far from healthy, possibly leading to patches of brown and even bare spots.

So, you want to have variable height settings to allow you to cut the right amount of throughout the year. The start of spring is the best time to increase the height, as the grass will be growing and be quite long.

After this, you reduce the cutting height, removing less length but over a more frequent period. Come fall, it’s time to take more height off before leaving it over winter.

As you can see, several height settings need to be used to achieve a healthy lawn, and these are often differ depending on the type of grass and the weather. So, with 6 adjustable cutting heights ranging from 30mm to 80mm, it should be easy to get the right suiting year-round.

Also, the M46-110R’s 3-point height adjustable setting makes adjusting the heights quick and easy. If course, not everyone cares to adjust their cutting height, in which case the middle setting of the M46-110R’s blade height is a happy-medium for most lawns, so it’s a win-win in most instances!

If you find yourself mowing in large lawns with the M46-110R, then the 50L grass collector will certainly be useful. It’s got enough capacity that you can mow most gardens without needing to empty it, while transporting clippings to a bin is also quick and easy.
