A powerful, self-propelled mower from a leading British brand

Ease of use

If you’re looking for a mower with serious pedigree, you’re in the right place. The 48 autodrive 474A is a classic Hayter mower – boasting a powerful autodrive system with variable speed controls, a trim side for immaculate borders and a high-performance, two-piece rear roller that takes all the hard work out of those classic British lawn stripes.

The cut and collect system is one of a kind too. Employing a large, 70l grassbag; an ABS-lined underdeck and forward-facing fins that are designed to comb grass into an upright position before its cut, the Harrier 474A massively reduces the amount of time you’ll spend emptying out grass clippings, or cleaning up after you’ve finished mowing a lawn.

And if that wasn’t enough, the Harrier 474A also boasts Hayter’s unique Vari-Pitch cutting technology, which automatically adjusts the cutting height to increase airflow when you’re cutting long (or wet) grass. It’s a versatile machine that takes the hard work out of lawn maintenance, and it’s a real joy to use.


Blessed with a powerful engine and a host of performance-enhancing technologies, the Harrier 474A will make light work of any domestic lawn. It provides all the horsepower you’ll need to power through thick or tall grass, and its 7 height-of-cut settings ensure you get the perfect cut every time.

What’s more, its front-facing fins are designed to comb individual blades of grass into an upright position before the blade reaches them; ensuring an even and consistent cut.


Built with an aluminium cutting deck and a surprisingly light frame, the Harrier 474A manages to be much more fuel-efficient than its’ 48cm cutting width (and undeniably large frame) seem to suggest. Like all of Hayter’s mowers, it’s also designed to have the smallest carbon footprint possible, making it an ideal choice for anyone who’s looking to conserve fuel, or protect the environment.


The Harrier 474A is a robust & reliable mower that’s built to withstand years of heavy use. Its’ corrosion-resistant, aluminium cutting deck benefits from a lifetime warranty, and the wheels are also fitted with ball race bearings to minimise wear.

The friction disc is also designed to protect the engine when you hit a solid object, and this powerful mower is designed from the ground up to endure the everyday wear-and-tear associated with regular lawn care.

More importantly, the Harrier 474A comes with a 5-year domestic warranty – and a lifetime warranty against crank-shaft bending – making this mower one of the most reliable options in the Hayter range
