Any lawn mower experts here?
Used to get our grass cut by a mate at work but as he as now left I am looking to buy my first mower. He originaly had a cheap 2nd hand electric mower which kept cutting out trying to cut our over grown grass (not massively overgrown). He then bought a 2nd hand petrol mower after the electric mower died,the petrol mower made light work of our medium sized garden.
So I was thinking of getting a petrol mower but these look to be expensive compared to electric. Looking to spend around £100 ish so looks like electric is my only option. I don't know what sort of grass we have but it is a bit erm wild compared to your normal smooth type grass. The house is rented and was only laid about 3 years ago so would imagine its the cheapest grass available, if that helps any.
Had a quick look on B&Q website and they have a couple of electric mowers around £130 ish, Bosch,Flymo and a MAC mower. One of the mowers has a slighlty bigger 1600W motor although unsure how realistic mower manufacturers are with the power ratings.
Any advice on a mower for a medium sized garden (guestimating 20Mx6M ish at widest point) with rough ish grass that at the moment is slightly overgrown, a few tufty bits and some longer bits. Hopefully something with a powerfull ish motor that is well built and isn't going to die as soon as the warranty runs out. I am probably being optimistic with my low budget but I have no clue when it comes to green fingered gadgets.
Don't mind buying online if there are any bargains to be had.
