Any good? Reviews don’t seem too bad


I'd say it's a cut above the rest.

Huh, the majority of reviews are 4/5 stars
My guess is we will start to see some real bargains on petrol mowers/garden tools as the emergence of cordless continues. I had a cordless mower about 15 years ago, the concept was great but the battery tech just wasn't there. Now it is and it's going to revolutionise garden care imo.
PS Heat added for excellent price.
this is hand proppelled so mostly useless

They have a self propelled one for £200.

If you have a big hilly garden or are a complete weakling, this wouldnt be the best choice. But if you have an average levellish garden and normal strength, it'll do the job just fine. My current mower was self-propelled, but the self-propelling mechanism broke - still cuts the lawn with no problems or undue effort.

For a medium to large size garden, a petrol is still much better. I'm bought into the Ryobi ONE+ system so bought a top of the line Ryobi cordless ONE+/hybrid mower and after two mowsI took it back. It simply wasn't up to the task. Homebase allowed me to swap it for a Ryobi petrol mower with a 175cc Subaru engine. The difference was amazing. Some of the performance of the petrol mower is due to the weight, the electric mowers are much lighter. The weight is a disadvantage on a small lawn as you have lots of turning to do, but the lightness of an electric mower is a disadvantage when cutting.

Apples and pears - cant compare a powered cutter with a manual one.

Just nope. It’s a superb mower and not very heavy.

Isn't the Ryobi mower just 18v though? Personally wouldn't touch that sort of battery mower when there are up to 60v mowers available. I think you just chose the wrong machine and that may have coloured your view of the whole cordless mower market.

Cordless mowers just don't have enough grunt. Like cordless vacuum cleaners.
My petrol mower is 20 years old, don't know how many batteries a cordless mower would have got through in that time.

The only reason I don't buy a petrol mower is I'm a bit thick and not sure how to maintain it or even what petrol you use.
Anyone seen a decent deal on a petrol one with a roller on the rear?

They run on normal unleaded - you just take a gallon can (eg from Halfords) with you when you fill your car. No real hassle - I only use a couple of gallons a year. Maintenance other than a wipe round and clear cuttings etc. is meant to be every 2 years but if mine's running OK I just change the spark plug (easy).

Having a petrol mower (with self-drive) is the only thing that gets me out into the garden!

Lol, petrol, same as what goes in the car. Maintenance wise, maybe change the oil every few years, check spark plug if not working.

I wouldn't even bother changing the spark plug to be honest unless it isnt starting up well. I never have in 20 years. When you think that copper spark plugs on cars are good for at least 12,000 miles which must be at least 2500 hours of use, then think you maybe use a mower for 1hour a week for 20 or 30 weeks of the year...

The Ryobi hybrid uses 2x18v 5mah packs, so it's 36v. Plus you can plug it in if you need to, but that defeats the purpose of a cordless mower - but still a good option should you run out of power half way through the lawn.

Ether way, I'll stick with the petrol one I've got until it dies, if I can get 5-10 years from it then the electric ones should have come on leaps and bounds by then.
Just look on eBay and buy a second hand Mountfield or Honda and you'll be ok.

Well yes, but got you got to factor in that they are selling it for a reason - unless they are moving to a flat, that reason could be that it's got a problem. Probably an easy fix for anyone handy though.
Every spring I go into the shed bring out ‘The Mountfield ‘ all be it electric. It just works and has been for 20 years. Oh and we got it second hand! Astonishing Quality.
