Ease of use

A robust and powerful mower with a fantastic autodrive system, the Harrier 479B delivers a perfect finish every time. Thanks to its fully adjustable cutting deck it’s easy to set up and use making it ideal for everyday lawn care and maintenance tasks.

The 479B also boasts a blade brake clutch system that allows you to halt the blade without stopping the engine; cutting down on the time it takes to empty the huge (70l) grass bag, and allowing you to reposition the mower without struggling with pull cords and chokes.

The Harrier 479B’s ribbed rear roller creates a fine lawn stripe with minimal effort. Perfect for those jobs that demand a flawless finish.


The Harrier 479B is a professional mower, built around a Honda GVC-160 engine. This robust and powerful engine provides approximately 5hp, which is more than enough to guarantee a neat and even finish. It’s also powerful enough to cope with high, wet or thick grass which is always a big plus.

Thanks to the side trim and front facing fins, the 479B also takes the hard work out of those pesky edges, and it’s worth pointing out that this mower is definitely one of the most versatile options available to professional gardeners.


A die-cast aluminium cutting deck and lightweight frame help to keep this mower’s weight low, and boost its fuel efficiency. Honda’s GVC-160 engines also incorporate eco-friendly technologies and benefit from a lightweight, overhead cam design that cuts down on fuel consumption


Like all of Hayter’s Harrier mowers, the 479B is a hard wearing mower that’s built to withstand years of heavy use. Aside from the usual high-grade materials and robust frame, this particular model is also fitted with a few enhancements that are designed to help it cope with the rigours of commercial use.

The engine’s fitted with a cast-iron cylinder sleeve, the wheels use smooth-running ball bearings to improve their lifespan and the cutting deck is made from die-cast aluminium to make sure it’s corrosion resistant. All of which helps to make this mower one of the most reliable options for any commercial user.
