Found 8th Apr 2014
Its showing £138 on B&Q website but i have received a B&Q sizzling Easter offer magazine where the above mower is priced £96. I even double checked the item catalogue number and they both are same.

Do you know when the offer starts, we were looking to buy a Bosch Rotak?

And if you're over 60, 10% off on Wednesday with a Diamond card.

Starts on Friday

Bought this in a similar deal last year. Excellent mower gets great reviews

Definitely, but do you risk waiting for Wednesday knowing they might be all gone? oO

how is this to compare to the Bosch Rotak 340ER which is £89?

the date of the magazine 11th April to 1st May 2014, its not clear if its the magazine date or the offer start date.

William: Im guessing the Rotak370 is one/two model above Rotak340 but please check reviews online or on Amazon.

The picture on the B & Q website isn't correct, infact none of them can be relied upon as being accurate as I've just been to have a look.

The 340ER doesn't have the handles that curl up and so don't have the on/off switches on both sides. The height adjustment is the same, obviously the 370ER has a wider cut.

The 370ER picture isn't correct either, the height adjustment is next to the wheel and there are 5 positions, not 10. The grass collection box is in 2 parts held together with a red clip, it's a little bit more flimsy than the one shown in the picture.

Buy one on Saturday, a second on Wednesday, take back the one you bought on Saturday. Excellent mower. Very easy to use. Light but sturdy.

Excellent, thank you.

Unfortunately you cannot use the Diamond Discount Card, we'll still be getting one though.

The Diamond card exclusion is mentioned in the description on youtube.

The deal has also been extended to the Rotak 430 Ergoflex, normally around £170 but now at £125. I bought one earlier from the Chesterfield store and there were 6 more on the shelves.

Reserved the 430 for instore pick up (Only) £125

The 370 can be delivered (£96) although I'm waiting for an email about a self propelled mower which should have better build quality/longevity for £150

It seems quite good although the grass box was a bit fiddly to put together.

Rest of the construction was ok but it's helpful to have an extra pair of hands for a few minutes.

I was surprised that the 2 halves of the grass box at the front don't even locate together rather just butt up to each other not accurately at all, I expected more from Bosch.

We bought the 370ER from Nottingham store yesterday ,though there were both available (370 & 370ER)...which one is actually better build quality? We asked a couple of the store assistants what the differences were but they both said things which were blatantly incorrect, eg. One doesn't have the ergonomic green handles as pictures above, when clearly they were both opposite each other on the shop floor and have the same handles. Both assistants said the ER is this years model update!?

What's obvious is the grass collection box is in two parts on the ER, but if it's known to be flimsy I might take it back and get the so-called older one. Also the picture above looks more streamlined, though slightly bulkier. I did notice the box states 10m cable length for one and 15m for the other. I forget which and I'm at work so can't check now.

I would've preferred the 370 as I think the grass box is stronger, the height adjustments are different but they both work okay.

I bought one of these and after using it twice, had to take it back as it had stopped working; there was burning smell. B&Q kindly changed it, but a year on, I have used it five times and the second one has stopped working - same problem, burning smell after 4 minutes and not it has now packed up!!.
I had used a black& decker for years with no problem.
