Review on Hotukdeals by member mick2me when it was on offer for £22.50.
Picked up the last one from local store today. It will be returned first thing in the morning.

On putting it together you can see the poor quality. The handle attaches to the mower by two no6 round headed wood screws. They provided 4, I assume the extra to replace those that are lost. This may be the first mechanical failure point due to it being a stress point?

Using it the motor power seems to cope well, and it picks up well. The wheels are small and attach to the mower by a screw thread from the centre of the wheel and the wheel rolls on that. Adjusting height of cut you have to unscrew all four wheels and screw them on to a different position! The screw thread is quite long and this takes time.

The first problem you will hit is that in use the wheels keep falling off! As the left hand side wheels are not reverse threaded they keep falling off and have to be screwed back on. The right had wheels are not averse to falling off either, as you also pull a mower as well as push. It is not possible to put a locking nut on the other side of the bolt due to a moulding that presents access, particularly with the wheels screwed on the longer cut setting

The resulting cut was very poor and uneven despite the machine and blade being brand new. My 25+yr old Qualcast with a blunt blade gave a much better cut. With that it took half an hour to cut my small lawn. The Wilko took over an hour.

You didn't expect it will actually cut the grass properly for that price did you? I would rather use the scissors
