    Included cord is about 8m, so you would likely also need a heavy duty extension cord.

    Previous deal on Amazon in July was $9 cheaper.

    Is this the best value electric mower in the market ?

  •  

    Was in the market for one with Spring starting and the lawn a mess - Ozito 1400W is always $149 at Bunnings - so this seems much better - brandwise and price for corded electric.

    • +3 votes

      I don't know if I'd say Bosch is much better brandwise than Ozito. Returns are also likely to be much easier with Bunnings.

      •  

        Ozito is crappy bunnings owned brand that's why it needs better returns lol. Its like kia 7 year warranty vs others better brand 5 year and limited km warranty. Any why do you need returns for these electric motor, they just don't break unless it's really shitty.

    •  

      I have used ozito one for more than 10 years, still working but falling apart. It is for 20 sqm area only.

    Any battery ones about?

    • +2 votes

      Not anywhere near this price

    •  

      The battery ones I've seen are 36v whereas all my batteries are 18v, so I'm personally not seeing the point.

      •  

        What happens if you somehow plug two batteries in, you'd almost have 36v then.

        • +1 vote

          Some systems (like some makita power tool products) have that option. But that's higher end range for those brands.

        • +2 votes

          The Ryobi guy at Bunnings told me a couple of days ago their new 18V mower is due in the next month, it can take one or two batteries. You get better performance with two batteries. It's also supposed to be more expensive than both of their current 18V offerings. I've had a google and can't find anything about it anywhere though.

        Battery powered mowers usually come with one battery. When you mention your own batteries, are you talking about saving on the cost of spares?

        Each manufacturer has a different housing for its batteries, so unless you're really proficient at soldering lithium ion cells, it's far more convenient to just ensure the single battery you get is fully charged, or bite the bullet and buy the genuine spare batteries.

        I've had a Bosch Rotak 43 LI for the past 2 years and have yet to consider the need for a spare battery. As I make sure it is fully charged before starting, I can mow three approx 10m square lawns with it.

        I used to have a (corded) Flymo in years past. NO WAY would I go back to a corded mower after using the battery one… Dragging an extension cord all over the place, ugh!

          so unless you're really proficient at soldering lithium ion cells

          Soldering is for replacing dead cells.
          He just wants to share batteries between tools. So needs to install a pair of 18V male connectors onto his new mower.

          Could be home-made, or salvaged from broken power tools.

    It's it powerful enough to cut the grass properly or you need to go over the same area three times?

    •  

      I've only got a SMALL Patch of about 3x3m and it's perfect for that.

      I had overgrown grass of about 15-20cm long and it cut straight through it without any issue.

      Happy with my purchase, but i would assume dependent on the size of your patch.

    •  

      The ozito one which is less powerful then this cut through thick bladed grass aprox 45cm high around the sewage tank.

      I tried cutting my neighbours grass with this mower and they just started laughing.

      This is the most important line of discussion. Mainly, as there's a wild variety of experiences.

      I've had a cheap flymo for about 10yrs, from Bunnings. Meathead mates & neighbours love heckling me, like Tim The Toolman. I might’ve been the same, myself.

      Drag a cable around: easier than your vacuum, just mow in runs away from lead.

      Weak as piss: my lawns are THICK turf, and it's fine. Just cut routinely, gotta empty catcher more often, and follow standard tool advice "let IT do the work" (read: don't be aggressive, go easy)

      Meanwhile, I chuckle at their oil & fuel cans, servicing, wrestling the weight, and bursts of "start ya bastard", to name a few.

      It starts with the press of a button, sounds like a fan (can mow late, ie: daylight saving)

      Both types can be excellent, or crap. Stereotypes are lame.

    My old petrol mower has been on its way out for a good long while and I'm sure it'll stop very soon, has anyone bought one of these and can provide a good review, good and bad about this mower?
    TIA

      Did the ozito one and a 25m arlec cable from the bunnings. Work well but cord will drive you insane as you move it to mow…

      •  

        how annoying is the cord?

        can you give some actual experience of how you mowing when you got the cord attached?

        • +9 votes

          Don't run over the cord…

        • +1 vote

          Id say once the novelty wears off its about 70% max annoyingness.

          You learn to keep it to once side ect but it always gets near the mower and your watching it afraid of cutting it… I bought a aldi petrol one 😂…

          Go battery or go petrol.

          •  

            @Seedy seed: so you got one of the corded one?

            how well does it cut compared to the petrol?
            do you need to run it over the same grass path many times or just once etc?

            there's pro and cons of the electric mowers
            in that is probably less repairs and no need for petrol
            but the downside is that annoying cord

    •  

      Why not service it? Blade sharpener and oil change kit at aldi recently, also try cleaning the air filter… You'd be surprised

    I have the rotak 32 earlier and that mower pretty much last quite a while. (7 years)

    I have used it to mow my old house back yard which is not that big (3 X 15) till I moved to another house which has bigger yard ( 3-4 times the old place size).

    The little machine pretty much chomp down everything I run it on. And I'm quite surprised how well it runs.

    As long as our backyard is not that big, I think you will be happy with this item

    Any of these come with battery charge instead of corded?

  •  

    Nice to see the competition. It can't be easy to make money shipping a lawn mower.

  •  

    It wouldn't add to the cart, out of stock I guess :(

    just moved into a new house and used this mower on the weekend.

    Pros: east to put together, lightweight as mainly plastic, bin is decent sized.

    Cons: 8m cord had to get a extension cord 25m to cover my lawn, not very powerful had to go over the same area twice. Cord gets in the way alot especially when you are turning and manuvering, i have a big lawn 12m by 15m. It is tiring and im already considering upgrading. will be fine for a small lawn.

      There are methods, you might find you're happy to keep it.

      Cut routinely, empty catcher more often, and follow standard tool advice "let IT do the work" (read: don't be aggressive, go easy).

      Long lead, and cut back & forth away from power point. Ie: start near door, and go left fence, right fence, left fence… towards back fence.

    Checked about 20 minutes ago and noted it's now out of stock on Amazon.

    Still available - just saying taking longer to process/ship now - more than 2 days. I bought earlier this morning and received confirmation for delivery within 2 days

    •  

      Thanks for that - was showing out of stock for a while. Jumped back on and grabbed one. Don't have a massive lawn area and have gotten by with a Flymo push mower for many years but it's due for either a sharpen or new unit and, at this price for a powered option, we're talking similar outlay. Will try this.

  •  

    Just bought the last one.

    My Masport mower (2 years old) won't start and I was just quoted 100 plus parts for a routine service (plus who knows what else) from the shop I bought it from. Previous mower was at least 30 years old and never skipped a beat. Until it seized up, 7 years after its last service. Seems they need oil.

    So for the same price as a service I just bought myself a new mower. I detested that motor mower. Filthy noisy trash.

  •  

    My ozito version of this didn't even last a year. Go petrol.

  •  

    I really need a new cheap mower but I forsee electrocuting myself as I run over the cord on wet grass.

  •  

    Mine arrived today but didn’t fit the parcel locker. Will grab it tomorrow morning from the post office.

  •  

    Used mine today. Very good and light. Will be a good replacement for my old petrol mower.
