Cordless Lawnmowers FAQ

Which Cordless Lawnmower is Best?

We have provided a list above of what we believe to be the best of the best. Personally we like the Flymo range as they have been making mowers for years. Their battery life is very good, their mowers cut well, and they are we believe excellent value for money.

Are Battery Powered Lawnmowers Any Good?

With the advent and continued development of Lithium-Ion batteries, cordless mowers are now a very good purchase. They are quiet, and they cut the grass just as well as any other type of mower. They are also better for the environment, and almost all buyers say they work a treat.

Are Cordless Lawnmowers Worth it?

We believe that cordless mowers are worth the money. Yes, for sure, they are more expensive that an electric rotary style of hover mower. However, they do give you the complete freedom of no trailing electric leads and no more extension leads.

You can also use them anywhere without having to worry about a power source. That is handy for some people who may have an allotment, take care of neighbour's gardens and even in cemeteries. I guess it is a matter of balancing out the additional cost against the convenience of owning a cordless mower.

What is the Most Reliable Brand of Lawnmower?

There are a number of well known brands who make cordless Lawnmowers. The most reliable brands in our opinion are Flymo and Bosch. Both of these brands have been making various types of mowers for many years.

The only thing that has really changed is the vast improvements in battery technology. They changed from Nicad batteries to Lithium-Ion batteries and this has massively improved the working power of all power tools, including lawnmowers.

We like Bosch and Flymo as they have both got mower experience, battery technology, and they offer the best UK customer service options.

I am someone who enjoys a little gardening. Now I am not someone who spend hours in the garden, but I do like both my front and back gardens to look really nice. Well kept lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, and borders filled with plants, make a huge difference, to how your property looks.
