very cheap for a petrol lawn mower esp a self prop one, my honda izy was a bargain £300@ B&Q (rrp £429).....ryobi stuff is usually fine for the home, cant comment on their lawn mowers though but anyone would be mad to buy an electric mower over this

Great mower, Ryobi are 'hands on' with most of their gear so i cant think this would be a bad buy, so long as petrol stays at a cheap price! Good price, thanks.

Agreed re price of petrol. How many lawns-per-gallon should you get?

Sounds good price and Riobi are top brand

It all depends on acerage, usage, i.e. A larger lawn will take longer to mow, but will return a better mpg than a smaller lawn, when you consider the warmup time for the egine and the rotational speed of the blade, (mpg= mow per gallon).

Was'nt this posted last week at £3 less?

don't forget to take into account the length of grass being cut, and the level of your lawn, both will affect your fuel consumption. I have managed to improve mine through mowing the grass more regularly

bought this at higher price impressed makes a good job of our garden which is large and is easy to use

Just bought one - thanks.

A good bit of kit that seems to be well built and handled the lawn and the jungle at the allotment with ease.

A note for others thinking of buying - it needs about 0.5 litre of oil. It does not mention the quantity needed anywhere in the literature, only that you need to add oil.oO

PS. Dont screw in the dipstick to check the level.

Might sound like a stupid question lol but what are the running costs? Like how much petrol does it use for an average garden size?

Just fill up a 9l jerry can and it'll last you the whole of summer.

That is assuming your garden size is as i see 'normal', and that you dont mow it every weekend (im lazy).

Yes, B&Q had a 20% off 4 day deal taking it down to £111.98 from £139.99 ish (see link
Someone their who worked for B&Q stated at the end of the deal that this was going to be £114.98 when the 20% promotion ended - This is still a good price though.

Ps. quote "Next best is Screwfix at £159.58" ..... Screwfix are owned by the same company who own B&Q - Kingfisher if I recall.

Im soooo glad i came on here this morning, was about to plump for a cheap argos lawnmower as it was all i could get on my budget.

Went to Ballymena B&Q and managed to bag the last one, got it home started first time and cut my lawn beautifully. The self propell is so much better, job done in 10 mins and didnt break a sweat(even in todays humid weather)

Also take into consideration a strong head wind, this could use 2 extra mililitres of fuel. removing the metal outer body and replacing with an alloy cover to make it lighter will save fuel. You could also fit a front splitter and rear diffuser to reduce drag this will also save fuel.

Is this on their website as there is no mention of Ryobi mowers.?

Anyone know if they got any in stevenage

4 left in stevenage and got a hedge trimmer too which was about £50 off. Missed out on t he pole trimmer though at £75

any in purley way?

Why is petrol better than electric ? We have a medium size garden ... B&Q guy said it's just the cord issue ...I was looking at the ryobi on special (self propelled) for £115 ... or flymo electric similar price ... any advice ?

or a Bosch Rotak according to Which ?

not just cord......try using an electric mower on 4in wet grass.....my honda cuts it easily.....my friends electric one gave up on 2in wet grass!

ive had 3 electric mowers and then splashed out on a petrol mower.....id never go back to electric...unlike electric, petrol ones stop at nothing...same goes for strimmers

only downsides are weight.....light petrol ones are 30-35kg, heavy ones are 50kg so id always go for a self propelled...but also bear in mind if you have to lift it as 30kg is a reasonable weight
