Bosch Rotaks are the best electric mowers on the market....as long as there the British version, not the Chinese ones
Pretty sure this is one of the Chinese ones. I bought the 37" version last year. Still perfectly decent for the money; the British manufactured ones were a good 40% more money for the same size mower when I bought mine.

How can you tell which are the Chinese and which are the British made ones?

I believe the UK ones have a black cover over the motor so this one appears to be a Chinese one.

For anyone wondering whether that really matters I'd say YES without hesitation! I had great service and performance from what I now realise was a UK one. A couple of years back I decided I'd 'upgrade' to a new one when I saw a good deal - it was absolutely awful and I learned that was a Chinese one. Bosch themselves wouldn't even respond to emails and calls. In the end I took it back to the shop (Homebase but pre-Bunnings) and they accepted it back. Less power, shorter lead, uneven cut, very poor pickup of clippings and even flimsier than the previous one. It looked similar but performed nothing like it. Surprised Bosch would risk their reputation on such rubbish but I guess the DIY sheds demand lower prices.

I've now got a cordless one (bought used) and it is superb but they are very expensive: the batteries are twice the price of this mower!

If you just want to keep the grass down on a small lawn this will do the job at a low price but if you like a well kept lawn and value your time and effort don't bother.

I hate the expression 'you get what you pay for' because it's often not true - but in this case.................

I had this one a while back and it broke on second use. Maybe that Chinese/UK thing has some truth in it.

Granted the grass wasn't 100% dry when I cut it but my old Flymo didn't ever have an issue with that. I think the motor just blew out when it struggled to cut the very slightly damp grass.

Luckily it broke within 30 days of purchase so I managed to get a refund and swapped it for a Flymo hover one (300 I think) which hasn't let me down and is a lot more sturdier.

I may have just been unlucky though.

Hmm - one of these to a Flymo: frying pans and fires I think. Last Flymo I had didn't collect much - just left grass turds everywhere; it may have 'cut' the grass but it didn't provide much of a lawn to admire for all the effort.

Had the same issue with the first flymo which is why I tried the Bosch but thought I'd rather have something that would last more than 2 cuts! The 300 is better at collecting grass but still a bit shy-T.

Wish they'd make a proper vacuum cleaner for grass I've got a garden vac but they take ages.
