Yes it's not the Ergoflex, which is over £50 more just for handles (it seems)

Yes the ergoflex 43 was almost this price when Amazon and B&Q had a price war over the bank holiday

However some people would have missed that once in a blue moon event or like me they didn't have a garden then

Looks a good price to me.

Collected my mower after checking out this model assembled in Homebase and the Ergoflex version in B&Q

basically this is the old model before they changed the handles to that of the ergoflex model which is £110 in B&Q by the way.

£20 extra for plastic handles? Think not

I bought the 43/430 model a few weeks ago when it was half price/ish. I was surprised at just how cheap and plasticky (no idea if that's a word), I certainly wouldn't have paid £179 for it. Anyway I put it together yesterday (not a one man job, but somehow I managed) and it did a decent enough job.

Ergoflex is much better and worth the extra, have had both

I bought the 430 too for £87 and love it, a much better lawnmower than my flymo, very easy to put together, not really sure how anyone coukd struggle?

Anyway, I'd highly recommend these mowers, hot

I agree with you though it was more the shoddy workmanship that made it a two man job. I had to get clear the metal holes where the screws go myself because they hadn't been bored properly.

Fantastic mower. I just got tired of electric as you always have to be careful with the cable and bought a petrol Mountfield. The new mower does cut half as well the old electric one. Hot!

Yes one one side the plastic trim wasn't aligned properly so I had to hold it together using my knee whilst trying to screw a screw to fix the handle in. Putting the handle together on your own is fun and so is putting together the plastic grass box, in frustration I lined it up as best I could and just whacked it together with my hands. My advice avoid frustration and get a friend to help

We've only used the Ergoflex maybe four times and the safety button in the middle you have to push in first before the trigger has started to stick when pushed in. It cuts the grass well enough but having a problem like this so early isn't exactly what you would expect from Bosch. oO

I was lucky enough to get the ergoflex 43 at B&Q recently which has been excellent & cut my mowing time in half.

However this model would have been the one I'd have otherwise have bought. Heat at this price.

With all the problems people are getting it sounds exactly like BOSCH crap fridge i bought. Handles falling off and salad drawer broken within 2 weeks of light use

I struggled on my own putting the mower together. As I said the plastic was out of line on one side as well and the grass box is a bit fiddly to put together. My mower works so far, there's no way it was worth the original asking price which I think was £179. I got it for £87 in the sale a few weeks ago.

back to 139.99:( expired

Intermittent faulty hands.

don't understand these comments took 10 mins to build my new 430. To the person who had probs with the screws it is because they are self tapping as they cut the inside hole threads as you tighten up from the outside. worked perfectly well for me and the mower is top quality with very powerful motor.

I have attempted to purchase this mower today 10/6/14 and Argos have refused to honour their advertisement . . they insist that the offer of £89.99 ended on 9/6/14 and not as they r still advertising online, on 10/6/14 . . They insist the price is £139.99!!! . . this is surely illegal . . would I shop ever again at Argos . . I don't think so . .
