Seems to be a re badged version of this

gardenlines.co.uk/shop/lawn-mowers/webb-r18hw-self-propelled-lawn-mower

If so it's a good deal as the Webb version is £300.

Has a three year money back guarantee so worth a punt I would say. I'm giving it a go.

I thought it represented good value as it has the Briggs & Stratton Series 550 E motor, that alone is about £140. Where as the linked options don't. If its anything like my current briggs it will still be going after 25 years! 🙏

But if its crap I will just return it. Aldi seem to be pretty good about that kind of thing.
The linked options may be cheaper, but do any of them have a 3 year warranty or even a 46cm wide cut?

heat given
Edit

the B&Q and the Amazon one have less cutting widths and no 3 year warranty so they are poor value

The Wickes one does have a 46 cm cutting width but also no 3 year warranty so again, poorer value

Very tempted by this, especially as it has a Briggs & Stratton engine.

Heat.
This is a Chinese Briggs and Stratton engine. Never been anywhere near a bs factory.
It's all about the engine for me, 140cc giving 2.2kw of cutting power. Might be enough to drag me round the lawn on a trailer with a beer while I "cut the lawn"!
Purchased 3 years ago a Honda for £299 which was not a fantastic deal but still going strong. However, if I would be of a need for a new one I would give this one a go for sure.

Heat added!
Looks good, I'm after another mower since my 4 year old Mountfield packed up end of the summer. Was looking at the Hyundai's on Amazon but they have put them up in price about £100 recently..

Description isn't that good as its states its has a 65L & 60L collection box, big enough either way I guess,

That's an odd storage position!

Does anyone know if all Aldi's will get these? I have a big store near me, so will pop in on the 10th, when I try and buy online they want delivery charge, doesn't look like you can click & collect.

What are Aldi like on returns? I have a big garden so would like to make sure it's good, normally buy just food from there, so I have never returned anything!

Seems like plenty of money for one of the stupid new Briggs engines with the plastic carbs that are already having to be modified due to being designed for the US market where noise restrictions are far higher...

Better off buying a generic Chinese engined cheapo; at least the engine parts are cheap!
Briggs and Stratton like so many “names” these days dont amount to much. Doesn’t seem that cheap to me as others have said, and Aldi are not as easy going at returning things these days-the times they are a changing
"Self-propelled" sounds dangerous and yet so funny

Has anyone bought one? just wondering what the quality is like, my local Aldi was expecting some in tomorrow when I went in earlier.
Bought one, won't be delivered until mid week though.
Bought one just incase the argos deal doesnt get delivered

Does this have a mulching function? Nothing in the Aldi specs but listed in the Gardenlines website?
My 2 local Aldi's don't have them, so looks like I will need to buy online if I want one.

Has anyone received one yet?

Mine's being delivered today but I will be at work. Hope to have a brief play tomorrow morning. Will post thoughts then if I do.
OK, opened it up this morning. Intial impressions? Pretty impressed, seems nicely put together. Proper briggs 550e engine, however not had chance to fire it up. Will have a play over the weekend, but gotta say, seems like like a decent bit kit for sub 200.

Does it have the mulch attachment like the one in the gardenline link above ?

Not sure. Describe said attachment. Only has rear grass exit.

The one in the link above said it had rear and side exit, the mulching plug is a big plastic plug that fits into the grass exit - I found an online user manual for the one in the gardenline link that showed the mulch plug.
Looks like the aldi one isn't an exact match to the gardenline one, but is a cheaper version without the side exit and the mulch plug.

Does the aldi one have the hose attachment for cleaning?

Nope
After some research it appears the spec of this mower is unique to Aldi. But after looking at the other similar Webb mowers at other retailers this is still very well spec'd for the price. The Aldi mower has the 550 motor, the other similar sized models are the lower powered 450 and 500 engines.

For a self powered mower with a 46cm cut, the powerful 550 motor and a 65 litre collection bag, £199 is a very good price for what looks like a very capable mower. I'll maybe pick up one tomorrow, my local had a few today
Been to the store and purchased one, can't see me unboxing it for a couple of weeks as I've too much on just now. Other plus I can see is the mow and stow design means it can be stowed vertically meaning the underneath can be easily cleaned. The deck on my mountfield completely rotted as it was a hassle trying to get access to underneath without losing engine oil
Had mine running although to wet to give it a proper go. Runs well though.
Just assembled, started easily. Lots of plastic, which is good, less to rust. I’m certainly no expert but seems similar quality to my old mountfield RV40.

Very happy, so thanks op!

Cool, mine in being delevered today.
Not sure why this has expired, as it's still available online. Just ordered and looking forward to my first non-electric lawn mower. Thanks OP.
Reactivated it
Heat added op, hubby just ordered
Built mine today, not the easiest instructions to follow, but the machine is a very solid build.

Mowed on the middle height setting as my garden grass was quite long, thick and abit damp, as it was the first cut of the year, it made easy cutting of the lawn, it has a large grass box, so less time stopping to empty and restarting the mower, power engine which never struggled (similar thickness of damp grass would have stalled my old Mountfield a few times), it took half the time of my previous Mountfield, The Self Propelled moves at a good pace, but this speed cannot be adjusted.

Very happy with the mower for the money, better than any other mower I have seen at this price range.

Finally found time to unbox, build and test...

very well built, as said above lots of plastic to keep corrosion at bay.

For me the mow n stow is a real bonus for storing and more importantly cleaning underneath - my mountfield still works well but the deck has rotted away.

shame the throttle speed is fixed, I'll maybe tweak it if I find the drive speed too slow.

for the price I'm delighted, very smooth and quiet engine, more powerful than the mountfield so hopefully it'll cope wellwith long damp autumn grass.

Let me know how your experiment go's with the drive speed, would be nice to speed it up a little if possible.

Gave my lawn a good mow today with the sun making an appearance and the mower performed very well, I love that all the grass go's in the collection box, my old Mountfield used to leave a trail of grass, large box as well so I could mpw 4 lengths of my 30 metre garden before emptying. The engine also appears very economical, I only added a small amount of petrol after I built it incase I was going to return it, I have done 2 full mow's on that initial small amount of fuel and still not ran out.
