Looks a bit like a toy mower!
Are Aldi tools generally any good?
I'm tempted by the price

they usually have a cheap feel about them but work well. its not something i would recommend for a big garden. but you also have the added bonus of the 1 year guarantee.

Looks like an Einhell to me?Aldi can't be that confident in it if they're only giving a 1 year guarantee instead of 3.still good price and heat added.

Looks like the old dirt devil mower I had a few years ago, it cut the grass great for a small little mower .

it looks identical to the one my father in law got me at Xmas except mine has an orange cable, I thought it looked like a toy and would be a complete waste of my time, I was pleasantly surprised, actually does a pretty good job of cutting my grass, not the biggest of lawns but gets through it, small and compact to store if you undo the butterfly screws on the handle to fold back, you have to take the wheels off to alter the cutting height but this is quick and painless

The 1 year guarantee is essentially worthless when Consumer Law gives you the same anyway! Its just marketing to make the product look better

It will almost be an induction motor. The golden rule with them is not to make them struggle/slow down (no long grass or letting the grass collector get so full it starts to jam the blade); if this happens it will just burn out the motors start windings and warranty will be void.

1 year! It was 3 years warranty a few years back when I picked up mine. It cut the grass but the wheels kept on falling off as they were clip on butterfly wheels. Dumped it after a few summers.

Just my experience but found this absolute rubbish. Wheels keep feeling off even though I kept doing them really tight.
It eventually gave up, had smoke coming out if it and I had to take back for a full refund. Spent the money on a Bosch which granted was double the price.
Maybe ok for a really small garden, it is super cheap.

it looks like a £34 mower should look. spend a bit more and get something that will last

Go on then, post something " that will last "?

I bought one last year, when I took it out of the shed a month or so ago having not needed to use it over winter it failed to start. Rang the manufacturer, they advised changing the fuse and if that fails to bring it back to the store. Got the impression from them that they acknowledge the mowers aren't great.

Good if you only need one for a few months, if you're after something for a year or more maybe not for you.

cheap mowers are great. i got the cheapest of cheap mowers 6 years at bnq. paid 25 quid for it and still use it. most of the time they break due to misuse but its too easy to deflect the blame to poor quality instead of lack of common sense
look after your goods and theyll look after your wallet

I bought a very similar one...

And it is still going strong after 8 years

Pay a bit more and get the Bosch.

I currently have this lawn mower from the last HUKD

great mower
Does what you would expect cuts grass ^_^

I have found Aldi stuff to be generally pretty good.....but a lawnmower tends to be something you expect to last a few (5+) years so the extra you pay for getting a brilliant Bosch is less of a problem. But if you need a mower for just a year or two or funds are very tight I bet this machine will be just what you need.

looks similar to one I got from homebase a few years ago wheels keep falling off not a bad wee mower tho but this weekend you can pick up a bosch from homebase for 33 pounds more comes with 2 yrs warranty too I'd probably plump for the bosch tbh good find tho if your a bit short on cash n need something quick

So literally double the price then

So literally double the price then

yes but a far better mower and double the manufacturer warranty no. If you look at the **** picture 33 quid for a far better manufacturer, reviews etc are all good and double the warranty

dunno why the stars came up was meant to say bigger but seems autocorrect selected a u instead of an I lol

my bad it was my sausage fingers not auto correct for once lol

Exactly the same thing happened to me. They refunded ok.

I got an Aldi mower about 10 years ago and it still works. It's not fantastic, but I've no complaints for the price.

Anybody know what the minimum cutting height on these things is?

I decided to take a risk as I was fed up with my flymo blowing too much stuff everywhere.

It comes in a rather small box, which initially makes you think that it may be some kind of toy.

Easy to assemble although the grass box can be quite fiddly (I secured two of the rear clips first, which made it a little easier).

There is no cable reel holder to store the 10m cable in a tidy fashion, so that is a minus point.

You cannot fold the handle down, so another minus.

However, when it came to doing the job, I was rather amazed at just how well it did the job.

I first tried it on a lawn that just required it's regular 2 weeks cut and it did a fantastic job and was easy enough to manage.

I had it on the lowest setting, which is supposed to be 25mm but don't you believe it.

It cuts almost as low as a Wimbledon tennis court, so beware of that, especially if you have uneven ground where the blade can cut into the soil and the amount of grass that it collects at this height is phenomenal, so you will be emptying the grass box more regularly that you may like.

At the other two heights, it's just fine fo all use though.

It is also a rather quiet mower too, so you won't need ear defenders.

I tried it on a patch of grass that was about a foot tall and it demolished it with ease.

I deliberately tried it over stone chippings and small branches on the lawn and it didn't skip a beat and no damage at all.

It does pretty well around edges too, far better than I expect.

All in all, for £35 it's a good buy and when it comes to it's primary purpose it does the job very well indeed.

A couple of mods to the design of the handle and the addition of a cable reel holder and it would be the perfect cheap little mower IMHO.
