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.
