Cheapest cordless lawnmower I have seen anywhere. Will be ok for small lawns I should think, maybe medium if cut regularly.

Concern would be the 18v battery, can't imagine a great deal of torque in the motor
10 mins operating time!
Worth every Penny, I bought it on Monday for £47 , picked it up Tuesday when the price went up to £100, and now it's dropped in price again.

Read my 10th comment here for any moaners out there

Tried to price up a battery which seems to be £55 alone so probably cheaper to by 2 mowers


THIS IS A BETTER MOWER THAN YOU WOULD THINK BUT FEEL FREE TO PAY DOUBLE OR TRIPLE IF YOU ARE SNOBBY
PS: 6% Quidco

The Strimmer and Hedge trimmers are also excellent with interchangeable batteries

Looks like this cuts really well. Thanks for sharing. Some have said the battery takes about 2-4 hours to charge as it is not a fast charger like on the pricier options. Have you found this?
This one has dropped £30 since yesterday but it's not twice as good as the one at £47

2.5 hours on my first charge cos I timed it

cut my lawn twice inside 8 mins with more charge left in it.

Strongly advice buying the strimmer and hedge trimmer if they drop back to £30 as they both last 25 mins+ on battery use (same battery for those two)

Honestly, if you need to cut none stop for 25 mins, just buy 2 of these at half price so you have 2 batteries, 2 charges them maybe sell one casing or keep for future use.

These are ace

Anyone wanna buy a corded Bosch Rotak 43, cos i don't need it anymore, it's almost new (£130) currently £200 on Amazon, comes with spare blade
I may need a new cordless hedge trimmer after plugging the wrong charger into my Qualcast! Instead of the 400mA 23V Qualcast charger I accidently plugged in a 1A 24v charger from an LED Lamp (which has the same end) - after about an hour I sensed that burning plastic smell, although the battery was charged fully - it was pretty hot. it still has that really nasty smell to it over a week later. I thought a device would only pull the amperage it requires - and 24v isn't significantly higher than 23v - so not sure why this caused the battery to overheat?
anyone know if the challange lawnmower battery is compatable with any others (worx, parkside etc?)

How much?
I have the corded version of this. It's ok and the grassbox collects quite well. No roller though and I recommend sharpening the blades.

Note the cutting height is adjusted by unscrewing the wheels. My wheels screw threads have started to become loose.
" ...will give you up to 10 minutes runtime, enough time for most UK lawns." Really? Who writes this guff?
Wouldn't petrol be cheaper to run compared to electric?
For the size of lawns this mower is for it will only take 5 minutes. No idea what an average garden is. Mine is 75ft long and the grass area is about 70 square meter rectangle. Takes 5 minutes easy stroll up and down with a 3ah 18v battery. I can do this three times over before the battery needs charging again. Used to take a hard 15 minute graft heaving an electric flymo 330 about

i got this model the other day from a charity shop for 25 quid, works ok for small lawns, better than dragging a cable out the window

You selling a lawnmower?


Yes, I'm selling a £200 Bosch Rotak 43cm cut for £70 less than the same one on Amazon

It comes with many spares, including a spare blade and is as new (cos I take good care of everything I own)

I live in New Mills near Stockport if anyone wants a bargain

It's just too big for my lawn

It is this one, but £130, not £200

Out of stock at a lot of stores and no longer available for delivery. Wish I'd got it yesterday now 😪
We got another cordless one this morning for the mother in law so it might be worth checking stock again ?
defo more stock if you check, I have bought 5 !
