Out of interest, without looking at the box how do you know it's Chinese or British built ? I would also like to buy one of the UK made ones. Thanks


Probably says on box but I understand the UK ones have a black cover over the motor whereas the Chinese ones are all Bosch green. Needs confirmation?

Looks like one of the Chinese made ones - avoid!
Bosch really are risking their good name on these 'price leader' Chinese made lawnmowers in the DIY sheds. The UK built ones are brilliant but these are hopeless. Cheap but NOT good value.

What guarantee is provided with this?
'Chinese made' means nothing most technology is made there now
I have the 430 only difference is the width 43 cm this is 37 cm. excellent lawnmower . Bargain price

Hi, can I ask please can you post the barcode no. if possible Ta
It's fantastic, I've seen amazing results using this product, I did buy a spreader to put it on my lawn.

Also the assistant said this is a national deal.

I would not buy this product again if it was 1p a box! It killed my grass worse than any weedkiller.
I weed n feed every 6 months and usually have beautiful green grass, that was until i used this rubbish.
I now have massive bold patches all over. I think 40% of my grass is now dead and i followed the instructions to a tee.
I can see why its cheap, should be sold as weedkiller
How did you spread it? Sounds like over application or possibly leaf burn from applying to wet grass.

Looks like one of the UK made ones so should be good. Beware of the similar looking Chinese made Rotaks which, though cheaper, are unfortunately really poor.
Exactly what i was going to say. the made in China ones are shockingly bad quality, My made in UK one lasted 12 years of heavy abuse

Thanks I picked mine up from store today and a £10 voucher :)
Picked one up last weekend looks a decent bit of kit and cuts really well.
I didn't need a self propelled one as the garden is flat so this is ideal and a great price.
Good motor in it the Briggs and Stratton.
Remember that qualcast is now Argos own brand not the one you may remember.
Cheers op, good deal.

Nah....it isn't.

The qualcast had 2 yr warranty , bigger cutting area and recognised reliable engine.

I get told off every time I take a wizz on the lawn.
Tried the one I got for £6 a few weeks ago. It was a disaster coming out far too fast, and yes I set the dial according to the instructions. I reduced the dial dramatically and still not amazed with this product. For £1 though!!
Just tried it with the After cut I had off here few weeks ago. Works brilliant, no more scorch patches for me!
For information ....
Reduced to 50p at Wilkinsons Barnstaple yesterday.
Only a few left ( unless Charles & Camilla bought them when they were in Barnstaple earlier today ! ).

I have a similar mower from the same group of companies, looks like it has the same deck but mine is an older generation version of this. It's over 10 years old now and I've been abusing the Briggs and Stratton engine, I've put oil in it once about 8 years ago. Every spring it comes out and starts up and does its job perfectly the whole summer. It's a miracle of robustness and reliability, Briggs and Stratton don't get enough credit for how much stick their stuff can take and still work.
Does anyone have the M46-110R? If so, has anyone had any bother folding the handles after use to store away? Can't seem to fold them without them come out of the frame itself which is far from ideal.
That's a nice idea,Thanks guys
Excellent idea - don't know wjy I haven't though of that !Thanks

I have this mower. A good mower but recently broke a front wheel and can't get a replacement.
Would it not be repairable with araldite or milliput,just wandering.
Or take knackered wheel to somewhere like Screwfix to see if they have one to fit.. http://www.screwfix.com/c/security-ironmongery/rubber-wheels/cat840298

This is who I contacted support@ gardenservicecentre.co.uk
Should be a fairly decent mower for the price.The B&S engine is probably made in China instead of the USA,as they used to be up until a few years ago,but treat it well,and it should last for years (dont leave it with petrol in over winter,run it dry,remove spark plug,make sure piston is all the way down (slowly lower a pencil into the spark plug hole,and slowly pull the start cord to get the pencil to its lowest point),then put a tea spoon of the engine oil down the hole,give it a minute to drain down to the top of the piston,then slowly pull the starting cord to get the piston to its highest point.Remove pencil,replace spark plug.All done!,ready for next cutting season).
You can get lawnmower wheels cheaply of the Bay,just measure the diameter of the old one....
Also noticed it has a metal deck,which tend to rot quite quickly.You should get a small tin of Hammerite,and paint as much of the underside as possible,especially around the area where the grass is ejected into the collector,as this tends to rot first.
Do the above and the mower 'should' last for many years!.
Hope that helps someone!.

If you contact Qualcast and still have a receipt they might replace the wheel, I've had a new height lever and a new grass bag from them, if they don't give you it free they will tell you how much it costs

I used this around a month or so ago, grew back pretty well. And for the price, you can't go wrong! Only mistake I made, was that I seeded too much and did not aerate the entire lawn. But the part I did, came out very impressive. No need for expensive stuff, this does the trick as long as you water it regularly, especially in the beginning. And if you can, try and cover the seeded area (I covered my whole lawn with plastic sheet), this prevents birds eating your seeds and will help with faster germination.
Keep in mind, it will not take long for it to grow, but some areas may take longer, you're looking at 4-5 weeks before you see the full results. Well worth the wait I say..

FWIW, I used this to reseed a bare 11' diameter patch that had been under a trampoline. The seeds took really well and the area now blends in with the previous grass. The only downside is that the newly seeded grass grows faster than the old, so after a week or so I have a circle of long(er) grass.

Bought this and just took it back as I found it impossible to connect the handle at the bottom. Surely they should design thee things so as it's easy to put the pieces together.
Terrible lawnmower. Had two different models of Qualcast. Returned both and went back to Flymo. Will be sticking with them in the future.
Got the same mower, brilliant piece of kit for the money. Think I paid 66.66 at 30% off so this is a good deal
Not a comment about the product itself but remember that qualcast is not the brand you will remember but a licences name used by Argos for their own brand products.

I found the construction is relatively flimsy but it does the job. I have been on top of the lawn but managed mine and my fathers garden on the one battery. I note the grass was relatively short and emptied the grass 3 times, compared to my previous corded mower this was amazing. Problem is that with the dry weather grass has not been fast so have not had a chance to give it a good workout on long grass yet.
Buyer beware - virtually impossible to a spare battery and if you do it'll cost around £100 - great strimmer but lawnmower doesn't last long and I found even two batteries were not enough , I bought the bundle for £199 down from £249 around 4 months ago
It's a good deal, I got it for 169 last month and thought that was a good deal! The two batteries come in handy
Good product but it goes much cheaper over the year. I paid 109 in January.

I cant seem to see it online. Is it a in store only deal
Bought this earlier in summer and it was £57 (I think), there or there about. I've a fairly small lawn and it does the job nicely. The strimmer, as others have pointed out, is a bit like trying to cut grass with a pocket fan so you'll want something else there, but just for the lawnmower alone this is a cracking deal.

Just to expectation manage, the lawnmower is perfectly fine for a small lawn and for those who don't require perfection cutting, it's £28! If I had a more sizeable lawn, or the desire to have fairway like grass, I would spend a bit more if I were you.

The lawnmower is ok but the strimmer is like a toy!

Have to agree on the strimmer. Bought one of these packs and the strimmer is useless. Constantly having to manually feed the line and its to small for the average user in that you will most likely be bending over to use it.

The mower will be decent enough but i'd forget about the strimmer and invest in a more robust one if you need it

You probably meant something.
It is just silicone spray, nothing to do with lawnmowers but you get the 1 or the other spray option. I think I will cancel as it is only 250ml and compared to generic brands you get 400ml for the same money.

I have one, good little tool. Don't expect it to be a mini hedge trimmer though, it's relatively weak and only meant for trimming soft leafed bushes and topiary. Good for when you don't want to lug out your other gardening equipment!

Flymo's are crap compared to the Bosch mowers. I used to have a Flymo and have had a Bosch 430 Ergoflex mower for 2 years which cuts superbly well.

If this is used on the lawn, how safe is it for children to walk on it barefoot (pool going up soon on the lawn)? Thank you.

I assume you need to wait until it's watered in or it's rained before you walk on it.

Did anybody on here actually buy one of these?

Was thinking about picking one up to replace my temperamental 1980's Petrol Flymo that has a problem with the governor vane not keeping the revs up high enough.

I read a few reviews abotu Soevereign lawn mowers and it appears that some of them came with Mountfield or Briggs & Stratton engines?

Do this one have a generic unbranded Chinese engine?

I'll add my tuppence worth. I bought an unbranded Chinese lawnmower a few years ago from Homebase or B&Q or somewhere similar. I got a couple or three years out of it and then got problems-a carburetter problem I think, I rang around, put the mower into the car and drove around, long story short, no-one wanted to touch it. Parts were ungetable (is that a word?).
I spoke to a local garden machinery/agricultural dealer. In short if it wasn't Mountfield or Briggs & Stratton powered then people were loath to have a look at it due to unavailability of parts. I bought a Mountfield powered mower that day and since then the missus hasn't had a moment's trouble with it (she loves mowing the lawn, it's like Hoovering but outside in the sun), the difference is that I've got the word of a local reputable dealer that all parts are available should I require them in the event of things going wrong.
I'm not slagging unbranded generic Chinese mowers, I certainly got my money's worth over the two or three summers before it went wrong, I'm saying build my experience into your purchase decision-if it last longer than it should then brilliant, if it doesn't last too long you have your guarantee to fall back on, just don't expect too much from the price point.
I hope that helps.
The trouble is, a lawnmower mechanic is likely to charge £60+ to service a mower, it almost doesn't seem worth it. I bought a cheap mower 15 odd years ago, it still runs fine think I've changed the oil about 3 times max and apart from replacing some fuel hose which had perished I've done very little other maintenance. I'd quite like a new mower but this one shows no sign of giving up yet.
I think the carb had gone on mine, sourcing an unbranded equivalent carb from China was never going to be straightforward.

The downside of something proving ultra reliable is that you find it's harder to find excuses to treat yourself to a newer, flashier model. :)
Aldi one at £179.99 a few months ago ...3 year warranty on it.....like the man said its like the missus hoovering but in the sun she's a happy one ....and its a decent build quality ...The mower that is.... ;)

I'm a gardener and bought the previously mentioned model from the Range 2 years ago for £309.99. I use it 20 hours a week in summer and it's brilliant! For the money it is the best I could find when I was looking. The Honda engine is hugely reliable, aluminium deck doesn't wear like a steel deck & variable clutch means you can set off in a corner slowly and speed up on a straight.

That engine? Don't see Fernando Alonso rushing to buy this - the grass probably grows quicker than the mower can get around the lawn to cut it! :D

You must be joking when I was a lad I could get 70mph out of my smaller engined Honda 125, mind you must concede it wasn't much use at cutting grass !!
McCulloch mowers are shocking, the self propelled system is terrible. If they are so good I am selling mine after a years use.Honda engine mowers are great and this is a brilliant buy.
If your u want to spend quiet a bit more on a lawnmower that is top notch then buy a toro lawnmower they are in a different league and the self propelled system is brilliant.

Not available for delivery and not available in every store I've tried so far. Otherwise it would have been a good deal.
Nice strimmer, worth about 2 quid.
Seems out of stock in Screwfix and B&Q.
I grabbed one of these for £4 in B&Q at the weekend. Couldn't believe anyone could make a decent strimmer for £4, but at that price it was worth a punt. You're not gonna be doing your whole lawn with this, or anything heavy-duty, but it's perfect for doing edging and fiddly bits after mowing the lawn. It also comes with a fair amount of line on the spool.

I'll be amazed if it's still working by the end of the summer, but for £4 you can't go wrong.
They are all out of stock now but should be coming back in I was told

Lawnmower buying guide

When choosing a lawnmower, sometimes it’s hard to tell the wood from the trees – or at least the lawn from the grass. Not only are there a variety of brands to choose from, you’ll also need to decide whether to go for a cylinder or rotary drum model, an electric mower or a petrol driven design. The exact mower you choose will depend on your circumstances and the kind of jobs that you need it to tackle, and this buyer’s guide should help to make the decision easier.

Lawnmower buying guide

The Lawnmower – A British Invention

In a world without lawnmowers, gardening would be very different. Maintaining a pristine lawn would certainly be a lot harder, unless you were willing to keep a herd of goats or sheep in your back garden. That’s why almost every home in the UK has at least one lawnmower (and many of us have one or two rusting away in the shed).

The modern lawnmower was born in 1830 when an engineer from Gloucestershire called Edwin Budding decided that the old-fashioned scythe was too slow. Initially, mowers were rotary drums with blades attached, which were pushed by hand. In the later 19th century, motors started to be added, as mowers became a common sight in estates and parks across the country. By the 1920s, the motor mower had been invented – and gardeners could now sit behind their mower as they directed it around the lawn.

Nowadays, gardeners can still choose manually powered mowers if they prefer, but gasoline and electric models have become the most common kind in general use. Lawnmowers have become more sophisticated as well – with “smart” mowers featuring programmable routines and wireless connections.

Choosing between Rotary and Cylinder Mowers

Operating mode

One of the most important things to decide when buying a lawnmower is whether you want the blade to be rotary or cylinder-based.

In rotary models, the motor spins a blade at high velocity, usually underneath a protective casing. This is the classic Flymo look, with a hidden blade and formidable cutting power.

Generally more powerful than cylinder mowers, rotary models also usually weigh slightly more. So they may not be the perfect fit for older gardeners who struggle to push and lift heavy weights. Remember that lawnmowers feature a fast-spinning cutting blade – so safety is an important consideration, and gardeners need to feel in control of the device at all times.

If you regularly need to cut down thorns and nettles in thick clumps of vegetation, or you are faced with a large expanse of thick grass, a powerful rotary mower might be your best option. If you do opt for a rotary design, you will then have to decide whether to go for a wheeled model or a hover mower. Hover mowers are designed to lift slightly off the ground when in use, making them easy to use – but when you aren’t using them they can be slightly more cumbersome to move around.

Cylinder lawnmowers are quite different to rotary models. This kind of mower harks back to the very earliest models and their longevity is a sign of how effective they can be. Basically, cylinder mowers feature a cylinder-shaped drum with a fixed blades attached to the casing. As the cylinder rotates, blades of grass are jammed up against the blade, which slices through them.

Expert gardeners often prefer cylinder mowers because they offer a greater degree of precision. With a good cylinder mower, you can specify exactly how long you need your grass to be, and you can achieve a uniform finish easily. They also tend to be quieter (particularly if they don’t have a motor), lighter and cheaper to run.

Should I Go For Electric or Petrol Designs?

Petrol This is another crucial question, and there is no right answer – it all depends upon your budget and needs.

Petrol mowers are generally more durable and larger. They are the kind of lawnmower that landed estates use to achieve a uniform, meticulous finish for their large expanses of lawn, and sports teams tend to use them for the same purpose. If you have a large lawn or are maintaining a sports pitch, a petrol mower makes sense. The same applies if you expect to deal with thick vegetation on a regular basis.

However, because petrol mowers are usually bigger and heavier, they can present problems for movement and storage. If you aren’t confident in manoeuvring heavy equipment, they may not be ideal. Then again, it is possible to buy petrol lawnmowers that can be operated while seated, and self-propelling models are also available. It all depends on what you are comfortable with.

Electric lawnmowers are the type that most ordinary gardeners will be familiar with. They are designed to plug straight into a mains socket, and are immediately ready for use when the plug is inserted. Generally lighter than petrol mowers, electric varieties are rarely the most powerful available. They are perfect for normal lawns with few complications, where a nearby socket is available.

Because they rely on mains electricity, electric mowers will require an extension cord to operate them. This can be a difficult, and at times dangerous process, which is why many gardeners go for battery powered electric devices. Then again, battery powered mowers can run out of power at a crucial point, so make sure that your chosen model has a long charge limit, and remember to charge it up the day before mowing.

Different Types of Lawnmowers

What About Lawnmower Bags?

Whenever you mow the lawn or dive into a thicket of nettles, the green waste produced has to go somewhere. These days, relatively few mowers simply leave a trail of cut grass – which can aggravate hay fever and be put to better use in a compost heap. If you see the words “side discharge mower” in your lawnmower ad, this means that the mower ejects the green waste as it moves along.

Most gardeners try to avoid large clumps of grass strewn across their lawn. After all, the aim of mowing is to make your lawn look more orderly and attractive, not covered in green waste. Thankfully, many mowers come with a clippings container attached. This container clips onto the bag of the mower, filling up as you go. The key consideration here is size. Larger lawns will require bigger containers, unless you are happy to empty the bag in the middle of the job.

A slightly different approach is to choose a mulching lawnmower. These models process your lawn clippings as you work, turning it into a fine mulch that is deposited back onto the lawn. If you are interested in having a pure, unblemished lawn, this won’t be for you, but if you are concerned about the health of the grass, it makes sense. The mulch can also be raked up and used elsewhere in the garden if required, a win-win situation.

Find the Right Blades for Your Mower

Once you get into the details, lawnmowers can come in infinite varieties. For example, another thing to think about is how large the blades are on your chosen mower, and what type are required.

  • The most common type of blades are deck blades. Shaped a little like a straightened out boomerang, deck blades are fitted to the bottom of rotary mowers. It’s a good idea to have a few spares on hand at all times, as they can be damaged by stray rocks.
  • Another type is curved mulching blades. These blades pull up the grass of the lawn, cut it, and then push it up again into another chamber where they are cut up into a fine mulch.
  • Lifting blades resemble mulching blades with their curved surface and provide a more precise cut.
  • Cylinder blades are specific to cylinder mowers. You can’t generally buy them at garden centres, as they are built into that kind of lawnmower. When they are damaged, the whole device needs to be replaced.
  • Some mowers can use multiple types of blade. For example, a top of the range Flymo could use curved mulching blades, lifting blades or deck blades – so check in your documentation to find out which blades are supported.

Different Types of Mower Blades

Other Things to Consider Before Buying Your Mower

  • Power is a major factor in lawnmowing – just as it is with cooking or driving. If you have a small, uncomplicated grass lawn, you won’t need a souped up beast of a mower. If you have tangles of weeds to contend with or a huge area to cut, more power will be essential.
  • If you have an electric mower, check the power in wattage. If you use a petrol based mower, the power is measured in CCs – so be sure to compare models to see if your mower measures up.
  • Another consideration is cable length. Nobody wants to buy a mower and return home to find that it doesn’t reach the end of the garden, so measure how far you need it to reach and buy the right mower for the task in hand.
  • Battery life matters as well. Again, no gardener wants to leave a job half done because the battery ran out. Different electric mowers have different battery lives – but manufacturers won’t always be upfront about these, so check reviews and ratings to be sure.
  • Manoeuvring the mower is a vital consideration. However powerful your mower, if you can’t move it around nimbly, it won’t do the job, and it can pose a safety risk. Look for mowers with solid, adjustable handles that are strong and easy to hold. These handles should also be adaptable to be stored in shed racks, or hung from walls, making the mower easy to store. If you are particularly worried about being able to handle your mower, a hover mower is an excellent idea. However, these devices work best in smaller, flatter gardens.

What Are the Most Technologically Advanced Mowers Available?

Robotic lawnmowerIf you are a truly serious gardener and you have a taste for gadgets, a robotic lawnmower could be your dream gardening tool. Major brands like Flymo and Bosch have developed cordless mowers that are designed to operate autonomously.

Flymo and Bosch robotic lawnmowers can be programmed to deal with lawn areas up to 400 square metres in size, cutting grass to a specific range of heights. As such, they are potentially a great way to save yourself time and effort, as you can read the newspaper while your mower deals with an overgrown lawn.

There are even more advanced robotic designs like the Robolawn that are capable of mowing lawns as large as 3,000 square metres, which could suit sports facilities, while up-market general models have been produced by Husqvarna which feature an iPhone app to remotely control the mower’s operation.

Gardeners who like the sound of a robot mowing their lawn should be aware that of all the options discussed in this guide, robotic lawnmowers are easily the most expensive, although for some people, their convenience and the enjoyment of using them could outweigh the cost.

Storing Your Lawnmower Safely

You can extend the life of your mower by taking good care of its chassis and parts, particularly the cutting blades which do most of the work. One obvious piece of advice is to remove the blade and place it somewhere secure, away from children, and dry – so that it doesn’t rust.

  1. After using the mower, try not to leave it covered in mud, dust and grass cuttings. This can contribute to corrosion, and can be very hard to remove at a later date, so give it a wipe with a dry cloth after every use.
  2. If you use an electric mower, remove the battery after use and find a cool dry place to store it. Poorly stored batteries can become much less effective, leading to lower charge durations, so take good care of them.
  3. If you use a corded lawnmower, it’s a good idea to take some time to check the length of the cord for any damage. If the cord becomes frayed or broken, it can present a serious electrocution risk, so try to avoid this at all costs. It’s also a good idea to install some hooks in your shed to spool the cord around neatly, so that it is ready to use whenever you need it.
  4. Petrol lawnmowers shouldn’t be stored with fuel in their tanks – so be sure to empty them before putting them away. Alternatively, you can add fuel stabiliser to the tank to prevent degradation and keep the fuel ready for use.
  5. Finally, store the mower itself in a cool, dry location. Sheds are ideal, but avoid any heating elements. A good move is to install a rack on the ceiling or walls of the shed so that the mower can slide out easily. This makes it nice and accessible, and also saves space.

Cordless lawnmower

What Kind of Accessories Can I Buy For My Lawnmower?

Accessories for LawnmowerSpare blades, bags and batteries are a good idea for any lawnmower owner as you can never tell when an accident might occur. All lawns tend to contain debris and stones, which can tear a bag or dent a blade – so keep a few in reserve. Fuel is another standby if you have a petrol powered model.

Some forms of mower also have specific attachments to enhance their functionality. For example, drive-on lawnmowers can have trailers attached to them, which is useful if you are taking garden tools to remote areas of a park or estate. Manure spreaders, sweepers, rakes, weedkiller sprayers, lawn rollers and aerators can also be added, which is why ride-on mowers are so useful for land management professionals.

There are also accessories aimed at ordinary gardeners. Flymo offer a hand-held mini leaf blower/garden vacuum which can gather up detritus left by your mower. Trimmers are another essential for many gardeners, allowing them to tidy up corners and edges. You might also want to buy some protective gloves and goggles. Small stones and grit are often thrown up by mowers, so eye protection is a good idea.
