A 58-litre collector and a mulch-plug are both included. Operator comfort is important when taking-on the sort of large-scale applications for which this mower has been designed, so Rover have incorporated an ergonomic, upswept handlebar which can be height-adjusted to your preferred working-position (the handlebar can be quickly folded to save space in the shed). The Rover 861M107 also features an adjustable height-of-cut, which can be set to any of 12 positions between 13 and 60mm to suit conditions.
