I saw these mowers earlier on in the year but chose not to buy as they were to expensive. But now at £99 I've bought one this morning even though it's not going to see any action till next year!

I didn't realise SCREWFIX wasn't a dating agency.

Great value for a small mower with good reviews.

Self propelled electric cylinder mowers very rare now I'm looking on ebay

Showing £199.99 ?

Yep, £199

Try it soon, just I case you got a Friday machine!

If it shows £199 your probably on the mobile site, go to the full site and it's £99

Just bought one! Great deal

If that the kind with the floppy diaphragm carburettor I'd advise you to stock up on a spare ...

Nothing better than a cheap petrol mower...what could possibly go wrong?

Cold! As it is not a diesel!

Looks like a hefty majority of positive reviews - one completely negative review which was down to being sold a returned one. I usually find Screwfix to be pretty open with their customer feedback on products, you can see plenty of stuff to avoid and this doesn't appear to be one of them.

looks a lot more desent than the tesco rubbish on here a while back

Shame no stock in any of my local stores or far away ones either!

Pay the 30 quid extra for the self-propelled model - I've been running one for the last 18 months - brilliant - but I wouldn't fancy pushing it unless you have a perfectly flat lawn to cut.

Is the self propelled version bigger? I have a ride on but I still do the edges with a very old self propelled mower and Iv got nearly an acre of grass to cut, a new one is on the cards and this looks like a bargain. Thanks for the help, I can only see the mobile version at the moment.

Just in case anybody was wondering, Briggs and Stratton are great engines.

Looks identical to the 'Makita' branded mower that has popped up on here a few times. Great deal.

I can't find any stock

You'll never get a date being so double negative.

Self-propelled is a nice idea but it's one more thing to go wrong and the mechanism for it adds further weight to the mower. You're also limited to one fixed speed. For young, fit people it can be too slow. For older people it can be too quick. These mowers really aren't that heavy.

You have two basic choices when you decide to buy a petrol mower.

1) Buy a cheap (usually chinese) model. It will be considerably cheaper but won't be built to last. Buy it, top up the oil when it needs it and use it until it dies. When it does, buy another cheap one. It likely can't be repaired, your dealer won't have spares even for little cheap items and they can be almost disposable.

2) Buy a more expensive (often Japanese) model. It will cost more and will have a good warranty on it. You'll need to get it serviced each year and this might cost you almost as much as a cheap mower does to buy. It will work well and last well. It will start better, be quieter and use less fuel. When it breaks, your dealer will have spares and it can be repaired.

Many traditional mower manufacturers are putting their brand name on some pretty naff mowers these days. Many have introduced budget models with cheap engines in them that aren't made in the same factory as their premium models. All mowers are not the same, even if they carry a brand.
