    Corded model

    Thanks, ordered. Been looking for one to zip around my small yard.

  •  

    The cordless 18V is showing exactly the same price & discount. Maybe good for someone got 18V batteries in this range already.

    Cheers OP, was looking for one. Perfect timing.

    I use the Ozito 1500 watt for my yard (block is 800m2 including small house). Looks a very similar spec mower to this. It's fine and I am not a regular mower so the grass is sometimes long. Sure I'd prefer a cordless, but you get used to the cord and it's a lot cheaper.

    •  

      I am also using the smaller Ozito 1200W one for my yard before they have the 1500W. So far so good if this die I will buy the 1500W one, 1200W is a bit too small.

      but you get used to the cord and it's a lot cheaper.

      Yeah will get use to it and cordless one may not enough to finish it in one charge.

      •  

        If it happens to die within your 3 year warranty you'll get a brand new one with a fresh 3 year warranty. I had the 1400 watt one which burnt out and got the 1500 to replace it.

        •  

          I had the 1400 watt one which burnt out and got the 1500 to replace it.

          Yeah, before I have the newer 1200W I have the older 1200W model, the old one have some design fault the power cable cut off on the switch after a long period of time and I fixed it. The motor also die after years of use, so I still prefer to buy it from bunnings because of warranty.

      I am a bit worried about the cord accidently getting into the mover. Can that happen easily?

        Can that happen easily?

        You have to be careful it did have a holder to hold the cable up at the mower.

        Actually I did that once XD

        •  

          Yep, it can happen easily when you are rushing. Can't see myself mowing with a long cord attached. It could be ok for a small patch lawn.

      •  

        It is easy to cut a power cord with a pair of secateurs if you are so inclined. You don't need a mower for that. Plenty of people operate these without cutting the cable. Make sure you have a safety switch installed in your meter box and test it regularly. They have a button for testing. Mowers and secateurs are not recommended for testing purposes.

          I have never used one or seen people using it, hence the doubt. Most people around here use petrol ones.

            I am just worry too much maintenance is needed for petrol model.

            •  

              @superforever: What maintenance is this that you speak of?

            •  

              @superforever:

              too much maintenance is needed for petrol model

              Buy a 2-stroke petrol mower, not the 4-stroke that most dealers will try to sell you. They want you to buy 4-stroke, in the hope you will come back annually for an oil change (=$$ fee).

              With 2-stroke mowers, you mix the oil in with the petrol, usually at 1:25 ratio (=200ml of oil per 5l patrol). 2-stroke oil is easy to get, I usually buy it from SuperCheap when they have their $5 discount for club users. There is no oil reservoir, so no oil to change. And you'll probably use less oil than annual changes in a 4-stroke!

              The only other maintenance I have done on my 2-stroke mower, is to change the spark plug. I have done this twice in ~20 years.

              2-stroke oil is here:

              Cheaper if your store stocks the 5l bottle, or you can buy it elsewhere:

                @Russ: I've got 4 stroke motor, 11 years old never changed the oil or even topped it up. Changed spark plug once. I've found 2 strokes tend to foul plugs more so cleaning plug more often, never done that for 4 stroke. Mower has other problems but that will send it to the grave outside of the motor.

                •  

                  @bburgess76:

                  2 strokes tend to foul plugs more

                  The only time I had that problem, it was because a family member forgot to turn off the fuel tap when putting the mower away. The fuel slowly leaks into the combustion chamber, and the petrol evaporates, leaving behind the oil.

                  Perhaps your mower had a leaky fuel tap?

          •  

            @vinayAU: Put the cord over your shoulder and keep dragging it behind you. Its annoying to a degree but you get used to it.

            •  

              @revheadgl: Yep. but whats wwayyyy more annoying is when the battery dies on you and having to wait hours to charge, in a couple years when the battery hardly holds a charge and need to be replaced for the same price as what u paid for the damn mower - ends up on nature strip or given away on gummtree.

        Start mowing at the power source and zig-zag away from it (so that the power cord is lying on the grass already mown).

      •  

        If you can vacuum without running over the cord you can do the same mowing.
        If you can only use a cordless vacuum then maybe this is not for you…

        •  

          If you can vacuum without running over the cord you can do the same mowing.

          Exactly 😊

        •  

          That's hardly reassuring, i use a canister type vacuum cleaner ad when dragging the canister unit around, it ALWAYS ends up running over the cord.

    Just for compression, Bunnings only sells two electric mowers. Both the Ozito brand. 1200W is $109 and the 1500W is $155
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/our-range/garden/garden-tools/la...

    Would much rather stick with the Bosch.

      bosch over ozito any days!

      •  

        Bosch have served me so well over the years, I'm yet to be disappointed.

        This mower does look a bit dodgey though… plastic af. That said, I've just bought it with this deal as it will suit my living arrangements atm. Hopefully Bosch continue to deliver!

        • +1 vote

          Means they are as light as anything though.

          It doesn't need to be as heavy duty for some reasons…

          typically mowing smaller areas
          no vibration to worry about
          not much heat generated

          I'm really happy with mine. Have a full size block, but very small grass areas so this works well for me.
          Also don't have a garage so stuff has to be wrangled out from under the house (with steps) so lighter is much much better.

      •  

        Yeah I wouldn't buy the ones from bunnings. My 2013 Bosch still running fine

    •  

      *Comparison. Not compression. Unable to edit to correct.

  •  

    It's Corded electric

    Thanks OP, bought one :-)

    Ooo, I just bought it for $215 last week…

      Since it is the same item, you can order this one and return it unopened as the earlier one. There may be a delivery fee, but you'll still be ahead.

      •  

        Thank you for your suggestion!
        Since I have opened the box this Monday, I think I could just keep it…

  •  

    The ALdi mower they sell every few months is better value for money for $99 i think is more powerful than this too. Got one when was on sale last Sep and does a great job for my gardens and natures strip. The design on this bosch id say is much better - how it stows away and the cord position doesnt hang off the side but for the price diff you can live with.

  •  

    Got one last year - great deal

    •  

      What's your opinion of it?

      • +1 vote

        Works well - I had an Ozito 1100W before and was going to pull the trigger on an Ozito 1500 for $149 at bunnings but this came up instead which was cheaper, better brand and delivered.

        Since running its being great - never chokes on grass and handles the different lengths.
        Cord is quite long (5m woudl say)

    •  

      I've had one for probably about 3 yrs, it still runs great, I cant recommend them highly enough

  •  

    Bought this Bosch one in Bunnings less than 3.5 years ago and the motor died after 2-year warranty expired. Definitely not heavy use so very disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone. Bosch probably cuts too much corners in building this cheap model in recent years.

    •  

      The timeline you’ve mentioned is confusing.

      The warranty is 3 years (2 Standard + 1 year extended warranty by Bosch)

      Did you try reaching out to the seller/manufacturer after it broke down?

      •  

        I didn't notice the 1 year extra warranty in the package which was a mower+trimmer combo sold in Bunnings. It doesn't matter anyway as it died recently and served just a bit over 3 years.

  •  

    I've got this and it does a great job, even on tall grass

    Should say corded model in the title.

  •  

    Seriously do yourself a favour and buy cordless or even proper petrol one despite being 200+ more. You will curse yourself for buying the corded one down the track. Such a pain in the butt! I was in the corded boat too.

      I found the corded boat too limiting.

    • +1 vote

      That's a very bad generalization IMO. I have been using a sub $100 corded mower for 10+ years and would never go back to petrol. But then I only had <100 sq/m at my last place and <60 now. Cordless are good, but expensive if you only have a small section with little to no obstacles.

  •  

    Would this be overkill for a 70 metre square area?

  •  

    Ordered one as well for nature strip.

  • -2 votes

    Corded . Lol. That’s the reason it’s like $130

  •  

    Is this sold out already?

  •  

    Ouch, really needed one but missed it by few hours.

  •  

    Ditto but my Victa corded electric bought in the 80s still cuts well. The only issue is the catcher plastic is cracking badly. The Bosch would be perfect for the nature strip. The rest only needs a slashing.

  •  

    Anyone got any shipping information on this? Mine has still not got shipped.
