Really want a cordless mower
🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Scorching
Thanks - held off on previous deals around £90 but decided to bite at this price as I already have the batteries/charger.
Bought one last week for a bit more than this price, really pleased with it. It really speeds up mowing
Great little mower, a little plasticky, actually works well got the hedge cutter and chainsaw too.
Thanks OP, just ordered. Been waiting a while for a decent price on one of these.
I know it says up to 950m2 but I'm guessing that's with a lot of 5ah batteries and taking a minimal amount off very dry grass? I have 400m2 and would love to go cordless but really don't have faith in it lasting long enough to get me round it all
Use two 5ah batteries and you’ll be fine, I’ve got one and they’re really good especially at that price!
Thanks OP been debating getting this for a while! Good price.
I would really want one but a pair of batteries (official) and charger is close to £150 alone...

Was that from FFX in this eBay deal as well. Was there good deals on them?
Great price. Paid a little more than this but, its a great mower for smaller lawns especially if you have the batteries and charger already.
Amazon and ffx I think

On some sites it says that this mower is suitable for lawns 500m² to 1000m². At 400m² I would say you should be okay as with two fully charged 5.0Ah batteries the running time is given as 30 minutes (that's continuous). Granted factors like how long the grass is to start with are going to affect performance as is whether or not the grass is dry. To be honest we never cut our grass when it's wet as doing so will put additional stress on any motor (cordless or corded) and many manufacturers don't recommend it either. In addition if at the start of the season your grass is long put the mower onto a higher setting for the first cut as cutting it from long to short in one go won't do the grass much good. If you don't have the batteries or charger I would go for the double charger which is a little more expensive than the single but, will charge two batteries in the same time as a single one so if you find your mower out of juice grab a coffee or some lunch while the batteries charge.

I have one and run it on 2 x 4AH batteries and hardly go flat at all - love my Makita mower no way I would go back to any other now

What did you do for the batteries? Those cost as much or more than mower...

I’m an engineer and installer and have 4 batteries anyway so it literally works out fine for me. There are compatible copy batteries these days on amazon and eBay that you could invest in but I think generally the idea for these mowers is to be a Makita LXT tool owner in the beginning. Having said that my hedge trimmer and chain saw are also part of my collection - I’m addicted now 😃

Lucky you, it's like the razors, the tool is free or cheap but the consumables (battery) is exorbitant, even offbrands are like £20 a pop without charger...

If you do any diy then invest and replace your existing kit for Makita - batteries are better value when purchased with drills etc. I do agree tho that it is a massive investment.
Picked one of these up on a recent deal here. Great mowers and at this price is an absolute steal.

To those worried about the batteries and chargers, yes, this makes more sense to someone who's already got Makita kit, however if you're thinking of starting off on a cordless platform this is as good as any.
By any chance would Dewalt batteries fit this mower?
Hi there,

Wondering if anyone can help me. I bought a cordless hedge trimmer from Argos last year and was wondering if I can use the same battery for this mower as well ? Also, can you run this only on 1 battery or does it have to be two ? I have a small lawn 200sqm so not worried about the runtime.

You can pick the batteries up on offer every so often on amazon - I paid £44 for 2 x 3ah batteries and picked up a makita quick charger for £30 so £74 overall for batteries and charger.
Mine arrived today , quite impressed so far.
