Very good offer and better than the cheap mowers that are posted on here. I would have bought one but I am waiting for mine as its in for a service. Hot.

Hot,but not for me as homebase is closing where I live.Not buying anything expensive from them now just in case it goes wrong.

ordered. been waiting for a decent lawnmower deal, was actually toying with taking the plunge and getting a Honda. this should do for a few years now though, cheers op.

Honda are awesome and worth the money. My izy has been faultless for 7.5 years with approx one 2 hour use per two weeks for about 8 months or so use a year.

This seems a good deal though

I always think, if they can sell it at a reduction like that and still make a profit, how much are we really being screwed over by retailers? That said, I would buy one at this price, but never at the higher price.


I was going to post this yesterday and buy it. The only thing that was bothering me was that it was a front wheel drive and not a rear wheel drive and it is a fairly heavy machine if you have slopes.It is also available on their ebay page at this price.

If anyone has experience of front wheel drive and can comment would be grateful, good price for a good size machine.

anyone know when the next discount weekend is?

Lol, I resent buying anything unless there's at least a third off now. Damn you hukd!

Missing the point Freddie, missing the point!

UK consumers pay over the odds compared with buyers in the rest of the EU and also compared to the US.

Many retailers state that it is due to shipping costs and economy of scale but this is purely BS. All I am saying is that the profits of all UK retailers are excessive.

This mower costs a level amount to manufacture and is branded and sold in the EU differently, definitely well below the UK price.

If they looked historically at Woolworths, for example, whose maxim was , "Stack 'em high, sell 'em cheap", then perhaps the economy would be in a better position.

If you want to pay a third more than I am prepared to pay, feel free, don't sneer at genuine commentary.

I understand this and completely agree.

Are you saying you are only willing to pay 1/3 of the RRP?

Hukd has taught me we pay far too much. I generally won't buy anything, unless there's around 1/3 off.

"don't sneer at genuine commentary"???

I wasn't having a go, perhaps the "lol" changed the context of what I'd written in your view. It was an "I agree" lol.

Anyway, don't mind me, I'm drinking and easily entertained tonight.

[quote=Freddie Mercury]I understand this and completely agree.

Are you saying you are only willing to pay 1/3 of the RRP?
No. I would pay full price, if it were reasonable. Reductions like this show the fact that we are being screwed over by retailers ( and in fact manufacturers and distributors who cook up these massive margins).

I think we all need to wake up and smell the coffee and realise what is, and what is not, a bargain.

Bottom line is that you pay what you think is a fair price, however, the market is skewed towards the retailer, and, ultimately, the government who like their 20% VAT.

Retailers will bleat that they HAVE to charge what they do in order to pay their corporation taxes. Not true. They have to pay corporation tax and it is a standard proportion of their income, if they overcharge us then it is us who pay as reatilers can write off expenditure against their income, the buyer cannot.

We should all be more savvy and barter, like our Asian colleagues, pay what you feel is a fair price and not get ripped off.

We're both on the same page.

I agree, and believe, compared to the rest of the world, we're paying around 1/3 more for products at RRP.

That's why I begrudge buying anything that doesn't have at least 1/3 off. You should see my freezer!

Freddie, I will be round for tea. My freezer is empty

I hope you like defrosted bagels (from the condemned section in Tesco) and Tesco value cheese.
I also bought 12 cans of Tyskie for £10 to try (pretty good) so I'll have a few ready.
See you soon!

Very good deal , I would definitely go hot on this.

I've had a Briggs and Stratton engine lawnmower for over 10 years and it's never been serviced. Still starts eveytime!

Get a room you two x

Flymo petrol hovermower now your talking

Get a room you two x



He's still not here!

Are you free? x

Buy a battery enviro-mower, why bother with petrol these days unless you have a monster of a backyard?

Just bought one! Great price. I have an old mower with a Honda engine which is very reliable. Shame about the rest of the mower which is crap! Front wheel drive bothers me a little, but I understand that you just have to lift the handle to get more traction - only time will tell.

The whole point about getting the best deal is that the money you would have spent needlessly can go towards the next thing you need to buy.

...But Freddie was agreeing with you!?

btw for anyone else looking at this, ended up getting the smaller one for same price
http://www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/garden/lawnmowers/mcculloch-m46-125wr-self-propelled-petrol-rotary-lawn-mower-245785

if you compare here
http://www.mcculloch.com/uk/products/lawn-mowers/compare-lawn-mowers/?nid=658952,598577

the WF is a basic model, the WR has a much easier height adjust, and adjustable handle, rear wheel drive (not sure why i think this is better!) and is obviously lighter. and a few minor other things.
something to think about..

having used it myself, i think it's a little underpowered for long wet grass but otherwise excellent, starts incredibly easy you can just kind make a half hearted yank and she goes.

or if you need something big and powerful (grrrr)

got my OOS / refund text yesterday......

Yep same here to. Now waiting for my refund which is apparently going to take 5 working days so that will be at least 10 days they've had my money.

Homebase can go screw themselves in the future they've just lost a customer!

Me too. Got a crappy text telling me they'd had fantastic sales and were going to refund me. Got the refund, less the delivery charge! Turns out they took our money without having the stock and then didn't get their delivery.

****!
