The world of lawnmowers is incredibly large and diverse, with everything from American style ride on mowers to robotic versions that you can simply let loose on the greenery, all vying for space in the market.

3. Bosch ROTAK 34 R Lawnmower

Power outage: 1300W

Grass storage capacity: 40L

40, 60 & 200 meter cords available


Where this Bosch model really shines is its ability to tackle long grass. Its ‘powerdrive’ motor cuts through grass that has been allowed to get out of hand and can also handle wet grass too. Another popular feature is the grass comb that allows you to get close to edges and even take care of grass that is growing over the edges of the lawn onto patios and flowerbeds.


This mower clocks in at only 11kg making it very manoeuvrable and allows you to move it from storage and area to area if necessary, with ease.

4. McGregor 33cm Cordless Rotary Lawnmower

Grass storage capacity: 33L



Another favourite for small gardens, this cordless mower has a battery life of 32 minutes and features an indicator on the handle to show you how much power you have left.  If you need more than half an hour to get your lawn in shape, you will be happy to know that it can recharge in only one hour to get you going again.


A carbon steel blade makes cutting through tough grass easy. Choose from one of the five cutting heights to have your garden looking exactly how you want it in no time.

5. Flymo Hover Vac 280 Lawnmower

Power outage: 1300W

Grass storage capacity: 20L

10 meter cord


Keep things calms and quite with this hover mower from Flymo. The cushion of air created by this model not only makes it easy to move around your lawn but is also a lot quieter than other types of mowers. 


The handle folds down over the body of the mower making it incredibly compact and easy to store. The smaller grass box may be an issue for those of you with a larger garden but it is super easy to empty and also contributes to the small storage space, so we think the trade-off is worth it.

6. Self-Propelled 46cm (18”) Rotary Petrol Lawnmower by Yard Force

Power outage: 140cc

Grass storage capacity: 55L

Briggs & Stratton 500E petrol engine Petrol


This power house of a lawnmower will cut through approximately three tennis courts worth of greenery with ease. The Prime'n Pull E-Z Starting System takes all the guesswork out of getting this mower going. All you need to do is press the priming bulb 3 times and the exact amount of fuel required will bring it to life.


The roomy 55L grass collecting bin takes things a stage further with a compacting plug that compresses your clippings for less emptying. If you truly hate emptying your grass bag, then choose the mulching option that will see the clippings get finely mulched and laid back down to keep your lawn healthy and fed.

7. Gtech Logo Cordless Lawnmower CLM01

Power outage: 36V

Grass storage capacity: 40L



With a runtime of 40 minutes, this powerful lawnmower has enough juice to go over the average sized garden twice. The large wheels make it easy to manoeuvre around your greenery and although it has a weight of just under 17kg, it feels much lighter.


It does have the longest charge cycle of any of the battery operated models on this list, taking 5 hours to fully recharge. However, the large grass bin, 6 different cutting heights and a cutting width of 430mm that allows you to get up close and personal with edges certainly makes up for it.

8. Spear & Jackson 41cm Hand Push Petrol Lawnmower

Power outage: 125cc

Grass storage capacity: 50L

Briggs and Stratton 450e 4-stroke engine


Tackle large lawns is a breeze with this petrol powered option. The extra oomph from the engine means you can cut though thick and damp grass with ease; no more waiting for the grass to get dry here. 


We especially liked the way you could change the cutting height with one hand; choosing from 5 different levels between 2.5cm and 7.5cm with ease. The handle was also particularly comfortable. Featuring soft foam padding and an ergonomically designed shape, it made cutting the grass positively enjoyable.
