This cordless lawnmower is at a giveaway price assuming you already have Makita LXT batteries lying around. Cheapest it has ever been.

**Note this does not include the batteries or charger**.

For those who don't know, the Makita LXT batteries are compatible with a large number of Makita cordless tools from drills, hedge trimmers, strimmers, chainsaws, and many many more.

Or £155 for the 43cm one, which is likely to be more useful unless you have a small garden.

Doesn't state the size on this one but assume it to be 38cm (small to medium for most people).

Presumably two batteries and a charger would more than double the price?

Anyone got one of these? How good are they? Thanks
My Bosch one is excellent as long as I keep on top of the cutting (twice a week when growing) but I understand some of the battery ones aren't great. I'm not sure whether Makita is actually a recommendation in the gardening world? Doesn't appear to do stripes?

My Bosch 36v batteries (mega expensive) are 2.6Ah and it takes two of them (so equivalent of x4 18v batteries) to cut a smallish (~100sqM) garden on a 43cm mower. So much more convenient than using a plug-in with lead though: I wouldn't change back. Looking at Bosch 4Ah batteries but they're around £150!

If you tend to let your grass grow too long before cutting I suggest that a battery mower probably isn't right for you.
Petrol ones are still the winner for heavy duty large gardens...but I have see not a ryobi one in action and they are quite good.

What's considered a small garden ? ours is 10m x 10m is that good enough for one of these I have 2 x 3Ah LXT batteries laying around and a fast charger.

That's 100sqM like I referred to in my post above. The lawnmower will do it OK (though the 43cm would be better) but you may not manage it on a single charge so you'd really need another two batteries in reserve - or come back and cut the rest when they're recharged, which is a pain in the rear.
I have this exact model, I have Makita power tools and was a first time buyer so this made sense. For contrast I paid £175 in Oct 2016 and that was good at the time.

It's able to do my front and back garden on a single charge with two 3ah hour genuine makita batteries before the lights begin to flash. I have approximately 150 sq meters of lawn.

The only negatives is that if you cut the lawn when it's slightly moist then the lawn mower front wheels leave a bit of a streak both sides as they are quite narrow. It would struggle to cut really thick grass though there is a variable height adjustment allowing you to do a couple of passes if it was particularly long.

Very quiet, extremely light (Can push with one hand easily and spin it easily) and very compact; I fold it back in the open box after use!
You can get, if you don't already have the batteries from around £25 each 18v 4.0 ah batteries from amazon too. Link below. Don't forget you need a charger too.

My parents have a smaller Bosch than yours and the lawn is around the same size and it can be done with one battery.

You're not actually supposed to cut more than a third of the height off the grass at a time anyway, it weaks the grass. Dont do a second pass wait a couple of days.

I'm not sure many people have gardens too big for this mower.
