I've got the same mower from wickes, different brand but can see it's the same thing probably generic branding. It's ok, not amazing but for the price can't go wrong and perfect for only a small lawn. Also it's very lightweight so easy to move around, put back in the shed etc.
Bargain, heat
I bought one last week. Not the most robust things but both very light and will be fine for most gardens I think.
I've had this mower for three years and it is fine for a small lawn. If you are lazy and let the grass grow a bit too high this mower is better than the more expensive Flymo hover mower I had before. That couldn't cope with the long grass and stopped working forever in a puff of blue smoke.

On the highest setting this cheapo mower copes quite well with longer grass.
I know it's completely different but I have a petrol challenge mower. Bought it second hand about 5 year ago so probably 10+ years old. Never let me down. Never done anything to it besides a capful of petrol down the carb after winter and the it starts first time everything.
Bought the Challenge lawnmower & strimmer deal from Argos over 10 years ago, lawnmower still going strong, haven't used the strimmer for the last couple of years but it did work last time I dug it out out the shed.
