Flymo excels at budget rotary mowers that give an impressive cut on smaller lawns and can cope with the odd patch of damp or rough grass. This one is easy to store and has three cutting heights, as well as a 29-litre collection box.
This electric rotary mower is a great all-rounder for small- to medium-sized lawns. It has comfortable handles, it’s easy to push and it cuts all types of grass well. It effectively collects the clippings to leave your lawn tidy and the roller leaves it neatly striped.
You’ll be sure to get your money’s worth from this impressive new corded rotary mower that cuts neatly, deals with long and damp grass easily and is simple to use. It feels a lot more powerful than it is and it does a great job at collecting all the grass cuttings, too.
Don’t bother with this huge mulching mower unless you have a very large lawn. But if you do have a lot of ground to cover, snap up one of these new machines. It’s powerful yet lightweight and cuts quickly and cleanly, literally gliding over bumps and stubborn areas.
Robotic mowers mean you never have to mow your lawn again. This one costs a bomb, but it’s compact, can cut up to two large tennis courts of grass on a single charge and no amount of lumps and bumps, or moss and weeds, seem to pose a problem.
If you’re looking for a mower that’s a joy to use, yet can deal with just about every- thing a lawn can throw at it, this solid, self-propelled, petrol-fuelled machine is a wise investment. The controls are easy to use and it’s a breeze to manoeuvre, even on damp, long and rough grass.
If you want a quintessential British lawn (that is, striped) this petrol mower does the job magnificently on any kind of grass and it’s easy to adjust the cutting height, too. There are lots of useful features including a hose attachment for washing underneath the mower.
This light cylinder mower is great for small family lawns that need cutting regularly. It couldn’t be easier to start or move around and the roller will give you a striped look, albeit a faint one. It’s easy to store, too, although be warned, the grass catcher doesn’t come with it.
This new machine has been cleverly designed to increase airflow in the cutter deck, which makes it ideal for cutting and collecting without blocking in typically British conditions. It also boasts a new control panel with ergonomic controls, soft handgrip and height-adjustable handles.
This cordless mower is quiet and lightweight and the battery lasts long enough to get through a big family lawn. It’s easy to change cutting heights and the grass-box level indicator is useful, too. It doesn’t mind what state the grass is in and the finish is immaculate.
