Consider a 2nd hand Honda - (with an alloy base). After you have owned an Honda you realise that they specialise in mowers and cars are just a sideline.

If you want new at your budget I'd have a look at a Mountfield - try Screwfix.
Well I had an hover for 20 years then got a rotary and was well pleased. If you go for the same get the highest watts for the money.
I just buy this mower when they are reduced to £30, homebase and Aldi etc sell them but under different brand names but there the same mower just different colours, once the blades go blunt after 2 to 3 years I just buy another. argos.co.uk/pro…472

I have a large garden with 5 separate lawns(front and back) and have a mountfield. They are great, always easy to start and minimal servicing needed.
Ive got a wide cut Viking and it hasnt skipped a beat in 5 years

Its Stihls sister brand for lawn mowers.

I owned a Viking once - a decent machine. Was told that a lot of councils use them as they just keep going! Mine was two stroke mind - I much prefer 4 stroke to avoid the need to mix the petrol/oil.

Yep. Loads of councils use them.

Doubt the council use them at 2 stroke though. Not the most emission friendly

Mine is 4 stroke and it's a really solid machine.

I'll buy another if it ever dies. Comes with a 5 year warranty as well
