The 1400w electric motor on the WOLF-Garten Select S3800E has plenty of juice and is an induction-type unit that will prove impressively durable.
The chassis of the WOLF-Garten Select S3800E is constructed from high-quality plastic, which means the weight is minimal (14kg) and the mower is therefore easy to steer around your garden. It also helps when it comes to moving and storage, and this is made even easier by the foldable handles and built-in carrying-handle.
A cutting-width of 38cm means this mower will deal with smaller lawns efficiently; and the rotary action is very efficient, cutting the grass neatly and quickly; and lifting it up-and-back into the collector.
The collector is hard and constructed in a ‘basket style’ with hundreds of apertures punched in it , allowing the air through and optimising the airflow, thereby reducing instances of clumping and blockages.
The lid of the collector is solid, trapping the dust and preventing it from rising up in dry conditions and becoming a health hazard.
Great cutting-flexibility is provided by the three-step cutting-height - adjustable from 20mm to 60mm - enabling you to pick the right height for your lawn, or to suit the conditions.
The wheels are smooth-running and are made with moulded grips for traction; and the rear-wheels are slightly larger than the front by half-an-inch, ensuring smooth steering and keeping the turning radius tight and controllable.
The one-hand operation-lever is comfortable and easy to use; while an integrated rear-deflector enables you to remove the collector and cut-and-drop if conditions require.
A three-year manufacturer's warranty is included with this mower.

Bad DesignReview by Caroline Tomlinson / (Posted on 17/07/2019)On only the second use the handle dropped suddenly on release, cutting right through the power cable. The handle is very sharp on its end and is somewhat difficult to release for folding. It can drop backwards suddenly when released, as well as forwards, and it is virtually impossible to ensure the cable doesn't get caught given its position.
I consider this a design fault - or just very poor design. The mechanism for putting the handle up and down is equally daft. If at all loose, the nut holding the handle on simply falls off and could easily be lost. If not loose the handle doesn't fold up or down! Getting it back on is fiddly and can result in accidents.
The machine cuts well enough but is heavy and clunky. Would not recommend this machine.

Simple With No Frills, But functionalReview by Steve / (Posted on 30/06/2017)Arrived next day as promised.
Assembly instructions are simple, relevant and complete. No frills like fancy cable management or "grass box full" indicators. Decent build quality; at least the plastic won't rust! The 20m cable is twice as long as many competitors' cables and reduces the need for an extension lead.
Cut-height adjustment is simple, if fiddly (individual wheels), but functional.
Cuts well and close to the edge of the deck. Decent amount of "oomph" in the motor, so it didn't struggle when I attacked a 2ft-high overgrown bit. Overall, very pleased; if it lasts more than the 2-yr warranty period, it will be better Value for money than the £400 petrol mower it replaced.
