I've got this - cant remember how much I paid, but was definitely more than this, so heated!

I've got a decent size lawn, and the battery will hold out enough to do the whole thing in one go, so unless you have a huge lawn it'll work fine for most people.

The battery is separate from the mower (charges in a separate charger), so is definitely replaceable - although not sure where to get a replacement from!

Does it do stripes please?

Does it do stripes please?



It describes itself as a "rotary mower" - inferring a vertically mounted horizontal blade, "stripes" are more commonly associated with traditional lateral cylinder blades and have a built-in roller so, to answer your question; probably not to the extent you're hoping for.

Seems a decent enough mower though, at a very reasonable price - not just limited to cutting grass; I regularly use my rotary mower to clear leaves off the lawn, and hedge clippings from the pavement in front of my house.
seem to be good spec'ed and well reviewed but what type of battery does it include li-on or like some older models ni-cd? and how do you get a spare/backup/replacement battery?

Yes it will as it states it has a rear roller. I currently have a bosch rotory mower with a rear roller and it stripes the grass quite well.

Its says in the instructions its li-on
You can't go wrong at that price really. Note its 36v not 18v which again makes it a bit of a bargain. I tried one when they were nearer £200 new, but in the end went for a brushless motor model as I have a larger garden. Heat added.

PS Might be worth trying to find a second battery, though likely will cost more than the mower.

The Kabib rotary is better value for money, gonna pass on this one. Thanks
I have a Qualcast one and the roller keeps breaking on me.
The battery charge indicator looks the same. What chance the battery is compatible? Hmmm
cordless, 36v, decent cutting width, seems decent ordered. Wish it had a mulching adaptor though
Why go with this??? The Nurmagomedov is much better. This mower will call it quits after 4 uses. The Nurmagomedov is like a Russian tank; built to last!
Got it for a similar price few months back. Decent machine however looks like there is no option to but a spare battery for any reasonable price and even Argos do not sell them. Getting about 25 min with a full charge.

Link?

And does it jump over the fence if I let go?

Can not find a brand page or any spare batteries anywhere, only way i would really consider this is taking out the extra cover at £15.99 then when the battery dies or the machine dies just take it back for a refund (as they wont have them any more) so 3 years of mowing for £16 isnt bad.
Heard they're a bit tappy tho...😏

No, but with great honesty, it will maul the McGregor mower anyday of the week and twice on a Sunday... Or is that the Fury??
Lol

Good luck. Like most warranties, they are slyly excluded.

"What's not covered: The cost of replacing any consumables (such as external fuses, batteries, rechargeable batteries... ) "

I suspect some people may 'discover' a mechanical fault at the time the batt dies. ;-)

Runs out of gas in 10 minutes.
There's a customer care phone number in the instructions. And they mention missing parts help too.

Might have batteries?

You can buy batteries but expect to pay around £25-35. Some companies have compatible batteries but no price. eBay selling price was £25.

I’m on borderline to buy this for my old man. He has a Hayter petrol model that keeps breaking down from the pull cord mechanism.
Thank you for posting. I have ordered and collected one. I think its a good offer as most cordless seem to be at least £200 at B&Q. May do a bit more research though before taking it out the box.
thanks for posting, got mine today. It's a bit flimsy but works ok. Has 3 modes for power including auto, so it varies the speed depending on resistance the grass is putting on the blade. Looks like the battery is made from standard lion cells, so they could be replaced. My old mower was a self propelled petrol ryobi and I'm happy to be able to push this little mower around 1 handed and not be concerned with noise, petrol, oil change and maintenance. minimum cut height is equal to the second lowest height on my old mower, which is ok. A lot easier to manouvre round obstacles also. Make sure you don't expose the battery to freezing conditions, so I took mine out and will store/charge inside.
