Summary: I bought this mower for my mother's lawns and her next door neighbour's which both she and my brother cut regularly. Compared to the petrol mower that she had before, this model is lightweight and so easy to move around. It does not rip the lawn at the edges like the petrol mower did but gives a nice lush cut.
Summary: We bought this Bosch to replace a petrol lawn mower. It is so much lighter and more manoeverable. I could not manage the pull cord on the petrol mower but could easily use this Bosch machine if my partner finds he can't manage the lawns any longer. The only drawback is that one battery charge is not enough to do both back and front lawns in one go (roughly tennis court size).
Summary: Bought for my very elderly father, who after initial problems with the charger, but which Amazon incredibly efficiently sorted out for him, this mower has been a great purchase. It has given my father a lot of freedom to work without electrical wires. It is light enough for him to manage, so his lawns are now tidy and he is happy. We can ask no more.

Summary: I did a lot of research into battery lawnmowers before I settled on this one and I must say I am not disappointed one bit. I can now mow my 3 small lawns twice with one charge of the battery and can do them in 30 mins. It is great not to have to worry about cables and extension leads. I must admit that with the grass collecting box attached I find it a bit cumbersome to use - but given my lawns are quite small that is to be expected.
Summary: It's not often I give a product one star but I am forced to do this because of the following: The mower arrived and excitingly unpacked, put the battery on charge and put the item together, very easy. After about 30 mins I went to remove the battery, there was a loud bang with a blue flash and that was the end of the first charger. Amazon, fantastic service as usual, sent me a new mower within 2 days.
Summary: A very expensive treat to avoid the messy cable options - but probably worth it if you have a modest size garden providing the battery does not need replacing too soon! The replacement battery costs nearly 50% of the mower price. Usual fast efficient Amazon delivery.
Summary: Attracted by the idea of no electric cables dragging over a damp lawn, I bought this model 18 months ago for a small lawn. It was easy to put together, although the plastic clips holding the grass box seemed a bit flimsy, so I strengthen the edges with gaffer tape. The machine is light enough to easily lift down some steps to the lawn, but heavy enough to give that desirable striped finish. It is also very maneuverable and the finished cut was good.
Summary: This works as described. Easy to assemble and ready to use after a quick charge. Really like all the height adjustments and it cuts very well. Its fairly light snd easy to manouvre. I had not realised how much time I would save by not having a power cord. Its so much easier to get this out of the greenhouse, cut the lawn and return it without having to get the extension reel out and have to keep moving the cord out of the way.
