Hints & Tips
Here’s our prediction for the coming gardening year.
Cordless mowers will be the big talking point with the latest battery technology advances meaning that all sizes of lawns are now within their reach.
Mowers with the latest lithium-ion batteries are far lighter than petrol-powered ones, emit no smelly and harmful emissions and are not tied down by a power cable.
How many of you have used one powered by mains electricity and then mown over the cable? OK, well maybe it’s only me.
These pages show our full and unrivalled list of battery-powered mowers but here are a few to illustrate the variety and capability.
The Redback E137CQ-2Ah Cordless Lawnmower is a machine we helped to develop with a 40V battery and 2Ah power cell and designed to cut a small to average lawn up to 400m2.
And it will re-charge in just 70 minutes.
The cutting width is 37cm, there are five cutting heights and a grass box which holds 40 litres.
The mower weighs just 15.5kg so it is really easy to push along and there is a dial on the handlebar to show the charge level.
It costs £299, almost £100 off the recommended price and delivery is FREE within seven days.
The package includes charger and battery, and the battery fits a whole range of other garden machinery so you won’t need to buy another one or a charger.
‘It is a joy to use and I certainly don’t miss the trailing cable. I certainly recommend this machine, and MowDirect, just look at the quality of their website.’
That from a customer last year.
Among several machines new for the coming year on our site is this one, the Stiga SLM3648AE Cordless Lawnmower.
This has a 48V lithium-ion battery and a 500W motor and recharges within120 minutes. It has a cutting width of 34cm and six cutting heights and lets you either collect the clippings, mulch them or discharge at the back.
It weighs 12kg and has a 35-litre grass box and is delivered FREE OF CHARGE the next working day with a two-year warranty. It costs £299, £30 off the recommended price.
This one from Mountfield is already a well-established mower with two lithium-ion batteries and will cover around 300m2 on a single charge.
The Mountfield Princess 38Li Cordless 4-Wheel Rear-Roller Lawnmower has been designed to leave a striped finish and has six cutting heights and a 38cm cutting width.
This one lets you collect the cut grass, mulch it and discharge at the back and it light and easy to push along with a polypropylene cutting deck which has a built-in grass comb to smooth the grass before it is trimmed, giving a more even finish.
There are six cutting heights and a 40-litre grass box.
It costs £369, £50 off the recommended price and is delivered FREE within seven working days with a two-year warranty.
These three are made with smaller lawns in mind but if you have a larger one you’re not left out.
This top of the range mower has a 52cm cutting width and is powered by a 56V motor and a 7.5Ah lithium-ion battery.
The EGO LM2122E-SP Power+ Self-Propelled Cordless Lawnmower has a run time of 50 minutes and re-charges in 60 minutes.
There are six cutting heights and a variable cutting speed so you set the speed at which you mow. And the high torque means the mower will easily cut thicker longer grass.
It even has a pair of headlights for mowing in the murk and the grass box holds a massive 70 litres and as well as collecting the clippings you can mulch them and discharge at the back.
It is built around a polypropylene cutting deck which keeps the weight down and is easy to clean after use.
This mower costs £699, £30 off the recommended price and is delivered FREE the next working day.
