Really frustratingly I bought one last week at full price
Absolute beast of a mower though! My 1/4 acre garden done it 30 minutes...after the slightly annoying process of putting it together!

Return for a refund and re buy say it cuts out when hot
"perfect for flaunting in front of guests and holding garden parties"


Bet your garden parties are fun!
Bought it last time and it's a very good lawnmower with great cutting width. Starts easy, quiet enough and the grass bin part stores plenty of grass between emptying.
Does it require oil mixing or is it one of those that can use plain petrol?
Is there a roller at the back so you get stripes on the lawn?
Lowest height 30mm?!?

Lowest height 30mm?!?


My mower goes to 20mm but I never set it that low. I prefer 30-40mm so it may not be an issue for a lot of people.

Buy another one and return it with the receipt from last week.
I bought one of these when they first came available this year. It is a great lawnmower and can't really fault it

No there isn't, it would be nice to have one though

No, you can just use straight petrol (Min 91 RON)
is it still 3years warranty with Aldi?
Bought one of these back in march but it keeps cutting out when hot. Does anyone know if i can return to store for full refund or will i have to get it taken away for repair ?

Thanks tried calling that earlier but number wasnt recognised
I’m getting £199?
Hi Guys, when you click through on Get Deal link it takes you to Aldi Website where mower is listed at £199.99 and out of stock online I had assumed by OP's listing it was just available in store.

I called in at Stratton store in Swindon nothing on display. Then drove up to Latham Road branch in Swindon and.......

They are on sale for £129.99

I was not greedy and only bought one, so as of 12:30hrs on 14th June there are 4 more on display at £129.99

Just got mine. Aldi customer service very helpful in finding one for me to pick up locally.
Says on the box made in Austria bu Al-Ko, so a reputable brand.
Does anyone know if I can get a mulching plug for this item - as I don’t need the grass collection facility?
briggs and Stratton engine = very reliable
Literally just bought mine at 150 from Wolverhampton Howard street. They now have 3 left. Did ask about the £130 but manager said prices are store specific. Just about managed to fit it in the back of my Passat.

It's my first ever petrol mower. Can anyone make any recommendations on where to get the Petrol from, type and brand? Comes with a Jerry can so I'm thinking I can pop down to the local shell or something and fill it up? I cut grass once or twice a month and I have 150 square metres of grass. How much petrol will I need?

Does anyone know if this can be self serviced, is it easy or does it need to go to a pro?

Really pleased with it.

The instructions that came with mower for assembly were not the best.

There are much better assembly instructions here al-ko.com/sho…pdf

Well done !
Bought one when they first went on sale, the engine is a more powerful version than most of the similar size models, the tip n store is really useful for cleaning and storage and the 60l grass box fills properly. At £199 it was good value, at £149 it's a bargain, at £129 it's a mental price
Bought one for £150, happy with that. I'll keep an eye out locally in case they come down in price for buy/return trick with the receipt from today. However after lifting and carrying it I'm not so sure it's worth the hassle of a hernia.

Yes you can. I watched a video on YouTube earlier, foreign language, where someone fitted the adaptor. You will find it on their spare parts list: al-ko.com/sho…ldi
Price gone back up to 199
Took me 3 stores to find one (they had 6). £150. If it can last 3 years it will be a bargain. Only managed to build it and go out to get fuel and oil, fire it up for half a minute before leaving it until the kids arent going to sleep. It sounded good enough for its first home start and its diameter is much wider than my former electric one.
I've read general petrol mower advice that is best to use fuel additive to stop the fuel breaking down and store the mower with a full tank of fuel to minimise condensation in the tank. That's what I'll be doing anyway.
Fuel additive is not really necessary on lawn mowers and old fuel should not be left in the tank.
Changing the oil however is critical and this should be done each year.

Regarding fuel
Providing the mower is not left for months at a time without replenishing the fuel, you should have no issues.
At end of season, drain the tank and run the engine dry.

Optional or if stored in extreme damp /poor conditions
You can add a couple of drops of oil in the cylinder head via the spark plug if worried about rust /corrosion.Then pull over the engine slowly to circulate round the cylinder head. Don't add much as your create piston lock and will struggle to start it the following season.

Think i got a dud one. Spent 2 hours putting it together (Mainly the grass box grrrrr)

Brought some Briggs & Stratton 4 stroke oil and put that in

Filled the fuel tank up. primed it by pushing the red primer bulb 3 times and is now leaking from the primer bulb and filter housing and it was gushing out.

Any suggestions? Also can anyone else who got one confirm they had those yellow signs that you have to take off before use around the oil cap and fuel cap. Mine didn't as i seen some unboxing videos on youtube with them on

I will try and post some photos of the fuel leak
Any ideas or comments on the lidl offer for a florabest briggs & stratton 450. (Fbm450b2)

Hi @hemanpaul87 I fired mine up for the first time yesterday. As per instructions filled 400ml of 4 stroke oil got it from wickes.. put some petty in. Started first time and done one strip and shut off engine. This is my first ever petrol lawn mower. Then tried to start it again. It wouldn't start. I did notice some leakage near the petrol cap which I thought was odd. Reopened and resecured it. After checking a) blade not stuck b) engine oil level c) petrol d) spark plug connected.... eventually I gave it a shake and tried starting it again. It started. So in my gardening session I did start stop quite often and found that releasing blade from jams helps as it allows the spinner to be freed up thus achieving engine start. In the first 30 minutes as my grass was long I had it set to highest height, otherwise it would jam. After goin over it once I went over it again at the lowest height. I did expect more power from petrol engine as one thing i do hate is jamming.. it takes longer, end up having to tip it over to get the grass out. But the self propel made it somewhat lighter work for me and did speed up my gardening requirement. Didn't notice any leakage after that. I used 0.5 litre of fuel (I think) for 2 hours runtime.

Oh yeah the silver ring thingmajig which holds the pull cord keeps coming loose. . Anyone else have that problem????

But overall wow.. the starting of the motor eventually reaching full power... amazeballs!

I didn't have any yellow signage...I know which one you are talking about I seen em on display models at bnq

Now need a premium cover for this so I can store it outdoors throughout the year... anyone got any recommendations?

Hi Thanks for the reply. I have linked 3 youtube videos in description of the leak (i took the air filter and housing of to show the leak)

I contacted Aldi customer service and they passed me on to a garden machinery repair centre called rochford based in Somerset. I sent them a video of the problem. They replied back saying It is the carburettor that needs replacing and this will rectify the problem.

They have arranged a cardboard box to be delivered to me and then it will get picked up

Aldi did say i can return it to store for a refund or send it of for repair as they said you have 36 months warranty.

Good service by Aldi.

Hopefully it will be all good.
