They can and argos infact do as they license the name so what you think is a qualcast may infact be the homeretail qualcast badged version. I bought the lawnmower & strimmer pack and it was no way based on the bosh rotack.

Qualcast lawn mowers

Qualcast is an English brand based in Derbyshire that started making lawnmowers in 1920. Their first mower was a hand-push cylinder and the brand is still well known for cylinder mowers, including the Atco and Suffolk Punch range. Qualcast is now owned by Bosch, which in January 2011 signed an eight-year license agreement with the Home Retail Group (Argos and Homebase) for exclusive use of the Qualcast name.
