Electric start mowers for a faster easier start to cutting the lawn

More people are searching for a lawnmower which fires up at the turn of a key, much like a car, with a minimum of fuss and no heaving on starting ropes.
So here are three top machines which fit the bill

Al-Ko electric start mower
Larger lawns: Al-Ko electric start mower
The first is the Al-Ko 470BRE Premium 4-in-1 Petrol Rotary Lawn Mower, a machine from a top German manufacturer suitable for a larger lawn.
This mower disposes of the cuttings either to the side (useful for longer, rougher grass) or to the back or can mulch them or collect in the 70 litre grass box.
There are seven cutting heights from 30 to 70 mm and the design of the deck means it can cut the grass and collect it even when it’s wet.
A turn of the key and the 190 cc Briggs & Stratton engine, reliable and designed for a long life, quickly fires up.
This one has extra-large rear wheels to handle uneven ground and make it easy to manoeuvre.
It costs £469, is delivered free the next working day and has a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
The second is from another excellent German manufacturing company.
The Einhell BG-PM 51SHW-E 4-in-1 Hi-wheel
Einhell PG PM SHW E electric start mower
German engineering: Einhell PG PM SHW E electric start mower
self-propelled petrol lawn mower with electric start, has a cutting width of 51 cm and again, just turn the key and the engine fires up.
There is a 70 litre grass box and an indicator to show when it is full.
A grass comb at the front smooths the lawn before cutting to give a more even cut and neater finish.
This too has four options for dealing with the clippings, either discharged to the side or rear or mulched and returned to the lawn as a fertilizer or collected in the box.
High wheels mounted on ball bearings are designed for a long life and the six stages of cutting height from 30 to 90 mm give you the finish you want and is adjusted by a single lever.
It has a strong steel deck powder coated for a longer life and Einhell’s own 163 cc engine.
The handles are adjustable to suit the height of the user.
This mower costs just£369.95, a substantial saving on Einhell’s recommended price of £519.95.
There is a two year manufacturer’s warranty and free next working day delivery.
And the third is from one of the country’s favourite brands, Mountfield, but has the added advantage of having a rear roller.
The Mountfield S461R-PD/ES Power Driven Rear-Roller Lawnmower
