Normally at £49.99 I was considering purchasing this based on the 500+ reviews averaging 4.5/5 but just seen it's now reduced to £30 delivered!

This has been reduced previously at different prices around the £30 mark but not for a while.

Looks worth while if you have a small/medium sized lawn so I hope it may be of use for someone.

I have one of these and it is really good, however the box doesn't catch as much grass as you might hope and it is a little flimsy, however it doesn't stop it being a fantastic little mower.

Nice and light, a great cut and easy to clean

Cheapest its been for a long time, heat added

i have one of these and after 10 years it could be replaced at this price. Served me well.

Green credentials too!

HOT

Ok for tiny lawn. When I was a teen we had a huge lawn and I had to push one of these things around it every weekend. My father bought a motor mower the moment I left home. There are some cheap motor mowers posted here, so don't strain yourself.

I bought one of these at £40 at the start of the year to replace a clapped out power mower, and I'd absolutely recommend picking one of these up if you're in the market.

They're actually considerably *easier* to push than most hover mowers, thanks to them being super light (and no messing about with any power cables). They cut really well and are also a lot quicker to get the lawn done.

I don't think even a fairly large lawn would cause you any problems.

That said.. an uneven lawn, or if you let the grass grow very long, then it does become very difficult to cut with this, so you need to keep on top of the mowing (every few weeks), and if you have a lumpy garden then this probably isn't the best. Also, as pointed out, the bucket on the back is flimsy and catches maybe ~60% of the grass you've cut.

Despite the drawbacks, I still wouldn't swap back.

Could have got a Bosch one yesterday for this price on Lightening deals

You can hardly call it a panther.

got one, they're great. Have half my lawn done by the time I'd hooked up the electricity to by old Flymo

We've got one of these, if you have a flat lawn and mow it every week in summer, they are amazing.

Lawnmower boot camp I like it.

Brilliant mowers.

If you're thinking of buying one - just buy it!

he always had one, just hidden because he wanted you gone

I've got a one of these for my small lawn ~40sqm
As others have said it's much quicker to grab this and whizz around the lawn than get the flymo out and powered up.

I wouldn't bother with the grass basket as it's just as easy to rake, unless you want stripes (or if you cut weekly just leave the trimmings on the lawn)

Damn this site......!

can you get nice lines using this?

Yes - this is a "cylinder" mower and as far as I know you get lines with all cylinder mowers.

This is nothing like the Panther that Qualcast used to make in "the good old days"!!
Still have mine bought almost 40 years ago.
It'll outlast me!!

This one should probably be called a "Tabby"

What happens though if you leave the grass on the lawn uncollected?

Got it for the same price around 4-5 years ago. Like it even better than an electrical rotary mower we had before - it is much quieter and still does the job well. No need for replacement yet

i like this machine, hot

I also want to know what happens if you leave the grass clippings on the lawn. I thought they went yellow and were bad for the lawn.

If i can use this weekly and not collect the grass (as i have to go through my house to get to my bins) then this is fantastic.

Our lawn slopes downhill. Not much of a gradient really. Would this be suitable?

As long as the clippings aren't too concentrated, they'll dry up fairly quickly and the new grass will grow through them. Ultimately they're absorbed back into the ground, with a little help from the worms.

agree with above, cuts much better than my cheap flymo, had mine a few years can't fault it for what it is, no unwinding and winding cables and extensions etc. abit of exercise too. quick, easy, cheap and cheerful.

No. The cylinder is far too light, so don't buy if your main objective is lines. However it is a fantastic mower as others point out.

Could my 8 year's old use this? Is lawn mowing retirement here?

If you don't collect the clippings they can turn to thatch and make your lawn feel spongy underfoot. Far better to collect them, even if 100% of them don't go into the box.

We have a Powerforce version of this mower, served us well for 4 years so far. It takes a bit of a jolt to set it off, but once you're walking with it it's no more difficult than using an electric mower, and as already stated there isn't the hassle of trailing wires. Our lawn has a slight incline, but it's free from dips or mounds and these mowers give it a far neater cut than any rotary mower. A bargain.

All hell will descend upon you and you will be taken and punished for an eternity!
