One has a cord the other doesn't.

Electric ones are far cheaper.

I've just changed my petrol for an electric. I've got a medium sized lawn too, but find the petrol a bit of a lump to move around - doesn't cope well with uneveness and was a pain in the **** to start.

Petrol is also expensive!

Got a Bosch Rotak 36 - seems very good so far, cuts closer, lighter - better on edges.

Go petrol.
When it eventually gives up the ghost, take the engine off, fix it (if needed) and make a go-kart! ;)

Rocks beware

Petrol easily, so much quicker and easier, our garden is big, but we borrowed an electric one when we forgot to buy petrol once, it was a piece of crap, could barely cut, was slow, just rubbish. My petrol one will slice a rock clean in two if it gets in the way. Wouldn't go back to electric.

I've got a push mower - I like the sound of it.

Ive got a push mower too............still far better then any electic mower. Cleaner cut better finish.......as long as you spray the blades every now and then with oil it works perfectly and has done for at least 6 years!!

Think you mean "rail" not "road" Bridge.

We use a manual push mower http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/qualcast-panther-cylinder-mower-24/727008.
Our neighbour has a petrol one and to be honest, our lawn looks just as good as theirs.
Used electric Flymo vac and Qualcast cylinder ones before but the push mower is lighter, easier to clean and control and does a great job.

This 'Rotak 36 ' gets a good review and @ £89 sounds a bargain

what's a decent 'Petrol' mower without costing a fortune ...?

Yea that is the one I have been using all this time........its excellant and I would never go back to an electric or waste money on putting petrol in a petrol mower for the same results.

RM you're looking at around 150 for a half decent petrol

Buy a Honda Petrol, they are fantastic, start first time, every time, not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

8 years old (and no reason to think it wont go on for many more years), starts first time every time. One new blade (when it accidentally chewed an iron bar), bit of oil and redex, otherwise the petrol is the only cost. Fantastic machine.

I get the impression the OP's only looking to spend around £100

I hit a nice size pebble with my petrol mower and it didn't cut it in half, it fired it straight through my green house.
