If it’s a tiny garden, a petrol mower is likely overkill. If you’re set on petrol though, something with a Briggs and Stratton engine should be decent. You’d probably just want a push type, rather than self propelled, given the garden size.

For battery mowers, I’m afraid I don’t have any experience, but I’m sure someone will be along soon with a suggestion.
...I’m actually wondering if you’d be better with a strimmer to cut the grass to manageable levels, then a robotic mower, if you can’t be bothered to look after it

Can't have a robotic mower as i have a big dog and some time there's poop on the grass and i need to pick it up before i cut the grass and i have a cordless strimmer already... what do you think toro-20945-140cc-petrol-lawnmower-3515108 it has a Briggs & Stratton engine i think.

Cool thanks mate gonna try and fine a secondhand Honda one on ebay thanks for your help.
No worries. You’ll not go far wrong with a Honda. Just like their car engines, they’re pretty much indestructible
bought this the other week (amazon have gone up £10 but was same price when I ordered):

and quite impressed by it - battery pack is the same on spear and jackson using samsung 40v packs so picked up a spare cheaply off ebay.

Hey mate sorry to bother you but would you give me a opinion on this honda mower Look at this on eBay
ebay.co.uk/itm…172 was gona offer him 100 for it what do u think.
Not sure to be honest. Ask some sensible questions - age of the machine would be a good starter, then do a little research. Don’t be jumping on the 1st machine you see would be my advice

Totally agree. If you go to look at it check to see if the air filter is clean, same with oil. What condition is the blade in ? See how it starts from cold - if it's warm when you get there that's a bit of a red flag. See how it runs and ask if you can cut his lawn !!

I would be concerned about the deck. He's tarted it up with a lick of paint but you can see the rust blistering. Honda decks are notorious for rotting through, they are nowhere near as indestructible as the engines. They also cost an absolute fortune to replace.

If you have the cordless strimmer just invest in the battery mower as well. It should easily cope with the patch of grass once it's down to a manageable length.

Thanks mate after seeing the rust I've decided on your recommendation and gone for a new battery mower hopefully it dose the job thanks for everyone's advice and help....
