Key Features

With any lawnmower, there are typically a number of key features, and we have shown those below.

Cutting Width

This is the width of grass that a mower can cut with one single pass. The width primarily determines the speed at which you can cut your grass at. The larger the width the quicker you can cut your grass, as you will have to do fewer passes. This model has a 32 cms, which is ideal for small to medium sized lawns.

Cutting Height

Most mowers will have a range of cutting heights. This Citymower model has an integrated system that makes changing the cutting height of your mower easier than ever. A simple one button operation changes the height of cut from 30 to 60 mm. You have a choice of three settings.

Compact and Powerful

This Bosch model is one of the lightest mowers on the UK market. That makes it easy to move around and easy to store.

The Bosch Brand (Gardening)

Bosch are of course a very well known tool brand. Aside from their high quality tools, they also make a wide range of gardening tools. These range from lawnmowers, lawn rakers, verticutters, trimmers, hedge cutters, chainsaws, leaf blowers shredders and multi-tool systems.

They are a German brand and their garden products are very popular with many UK gardeners. They have 40 locations spread across the UK with over 5,000 employees. In the UK they generate annual revenues of around £3.5 Billion, with the UK being their second largest market.

Our Verdict on the Bosch CityMower 18?

The Bosch ErgoFlex handles reduce strain on the arms and back by providing a perfect mowing posture. It is one of the best value cordless mowers on the UK market.

It can cut up to 300 square metres which is actually quite a size of a garden. The beauty is of course that it is cordless, so you can basically use it anywhere at anytime as long as you have the battery charged.

It takes around 1.5 hours to fully charge a battery and for that you get between 20-30 minutes of use.

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.
