This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A 40V 43cm Brushless Lawn mower
made by Kompernass, established german brand.

Spare 4Ah Batteries will also be on sale, £25 ea. (this requires 2)
£30 on eBay, or around that price direct from the supplier.

I made the jump from Petrol to Cordless with Aldi's march deal, and its brilliant.
you wont get a quality, brushless 40V lawnmower for less than double the money. probably.

next cheapest is something like
£180 Spear & Jackson 37cm 40V 2.5Ah(?) brushless [thanks konicky]
£200 Greenworks 35cm 40V, brushed
£300 Greenworks 40v 45cm 2.5ah brushless?

(brushless is near maintenance free, quieter, ~1/3rd longer battery life, more powerful etc etc compared to brushed, but more expensive)

cheaper options are 18V for smaller gardens:
£99 Einhell 18 Li 18V 30cm 3.0Ah Brushless
£150 Spear & Jackson 34cm 24V 4Ah(?) brushless
Good reviews generally.

the Einhell will be fine if you keep on top of small gardens with regular trims, and because how quick and easy these are to use, you will find yourself mowing a lot more than with petrol or unwinding cables all the time.

But 25mm (1") is pretty short. Unless you have a genuine bowling green with fine grass on perfectly flat ground anything less is going to scalp the lawn in places. And if you have a lawn that's as good as that you'll probably want a quality cylinder mower anyway.

I thought 20 was the max you could get so 5 mm above that won't be that noticeable.

I seriously can't imagine anyone being able to tell if your grass was cut at 20 or 25 mm

Because these are light and quick I do find it no hassle to stroll round the lawn for a once over. As it takes 5 minutes. Used to take a sweaty 15-20 of hard work with the flymo 330

Spear & Jackson from Argos goes down to 22mm, also brushless for £180.
looks quite chunky/solid
anyone got one? (seeing as 'its back!!!!!!!')
Ooooh....I just bought a cheap corded from Argos BUT I'm really tempted by this. Thx OP!


The Aldi one was at least 5cm less cutting width (albeit £20 cheaper though).

You'll notice it when you have to cut your grass 20% more often

I've been looking at mowers for ages trying to find something decent with a low cut.

Btw i don't get the 75mm cut, whoever lets their grass grow well above their shoes doesn't care about their lawn so probably doesnt need a mower.

Can you not add spacers to lower the cut?

Can you not add spacers to lower the cut?


Some thoughts:

For those that:
- Want a lower cut
- Don't want to spend the money asked for a mower that specifies this height
- Are ok with modifying the unit and losing warranty

Possibilities could include
- reducing the wheel size somehow,
- Adding a spacer between the blade and the motor unit (however there may be some safety concerns about the blade being lower than the protective housing
- Cutting away and modifying the lever if that's possible to allow further travel past the lowest position.

Mine was over two feet. I let it grow enough for seeding, then cut back. The birds flock down to eat the seeds and there is still plenty for new grass. It does make mowing the lawn harder but this mower is more than capable but requires another charge - ill be looking out for spare batteries.

Neighbour complains because of Asthma, but by the time I am reminded its a good time to mow the lawn :P

When I do the first cut of the year around getting to around April the grass is long. I tend to always use the highest setting whenever I am attempting long grass.

Keep looking I am sure your lawn mower will come up on hotukdeals. Maybe not the budget ones, but every now and then one of the better brands gets a good discount and then bingo

I think the purpose of the highest cut setting is if your grass is really long, to cut it first, going down to 20mm/25mm straight away would be a struggle and also shock the lawn somewhat.

you can of course put a bit of plastic on the lowest setting on the lever so it is held in position a little lower, but as mentioned by others unless your garden has been levelled by a heavy roller you will get problems with the blade not clearing the height of ant nests, mole holes, etc. I find that using the lowest setting shows up patches - but i dont water the lawn or want to spend the time to make it look immaculate. I am definitely not a perfectionist.

If you want a really low cut you need to get a cylinder lawnmower. Rotaries cannot cut as low. Pretty sure Bosch minimum is 25mm too.

I agree though that 75mm is too high and more adjustments at the lower end of the height range would be preferable.
Edited by: "mccririck" 5th Jun
Wish they did a narrower version with the same motor but slightly smaller price I find that smaller lighter machines are much nicer to use than wider machines...

Also another thing that might be an issue with this one is that the basket is cloth, I found the rigid ones to be much better when it comes to emptying it, the same design as this one on my existing mower is a right nightmare to empty particularly when the grass has a higher water content it sticks to the cloth and have to pull it out manually.

Yeah that's how much they are and I was hoping for a nice sale but I got bored borrowing my neighbors lawnmower so went in and bought one today.

It's really nice to be honest and very solid. For £10 cheaper all you can get is the cheapest one from b&q which looks awful quality wise and I think it's body is made from plastic as well. This one however is whole lot different.
Ah do these use 20v Parkside batteries? If so my local lidl which is Sunderland Castletown has clearance isle and they sell 4ah batteries for £5
I think they've changed the battery style/fitting recently.

Heated.
Does this have a roller for stripes?

Most probably not. Not enough weight.
Does the unit house both 20v batteries when in Use or one being a spare to swap over mid mowing (if garden big) , if 20v single battery that be why the cutting isnt so low as 20v will just cut out , 36v bosch rotak Li did/does if set to low , so ideally it would need both 20v batteries on the unit making it 40v running
