Summary: I bought a cordless model to replace a similar size Bosch mower which had a mains lead attached. Initially I was delighted, able to do the lawn cutting because of the absence of the irritating cord.
Summary: BOSCH Rotak 43 LI Ergo-Flex 2 x 36 V Cordless Lawnmower + 2 batteriesThere is no such thing as customer service with Bosch. Bought one of these in a closing down sale and even though box is sealed Bosch don't want to know that the two batteries and charger the box says it comes with are not packed.
Summary: I have had this mower now for over a year - I have owned both petrol and electric mowers before, and this is the best mower I have ever had. It does feel a trifle 'flimsy' at first but I now think it is built to handle the sort of knocks a mower gets.
worth spending more to get cordless yet still good at cutting grass

Summary: After reading all the comments i decided to go ahead and splurge and buy a more expensive, bigger lawnmower. previously had manual mower that was supposed make the lawn look great - but spent most of my time trying to adjust the thing.
Brilliant mower, heavy duty but light and easy to use...

Summary: Wanted a mower that I (female) could easily use, lift if necessary and that does the job with no fuss. This is it! Can't praise it enough. Once it was put together - I did it, no problem - I had it mowing the lawn with ease.
Summary: The main reason for purchase was to get a lighter mower but still produce good results. The Rotak does all of this. Very light due to the LI batteries. No cable to worry about. Produces good results with a stripe. Easy to manouver. Easy to store away.
Summary: Agonised over whether to buy a new petrol mower with key start or this 43cm Bosch. So far the Bosch has been an excellent choice. It is very light and easy to use and cuts beautifully. I have to use both batteries on my lawn but this is no problem.
Summary: What a marvellous machine this is. My wife used to take over an hour to mow our lawns now it's come down to twenty minutes. We can do them all with one battery but it's comforting to know that we have another fully charged battery available.
