    I want a cordless lawnmower, 40cm cut width, for a medium sized lawn.
    My favourite Bosch are quite high priced. Has anyone any input on Cobra or Green works lawnmowers?
    TIA

    I don’t know much about those but I use a Viking cordless for the hard to get to jobs and it’s been very good so far.
    what I will say is that while the price is a tad high on good cordless machines once you budget in battery and charger I spend just £12 a year on a blade and the small amount of electric to charge the battery.
    You might find a good deal as we enter the winter months.

      Well the Cobra cordless lawnmower is not available until December, must be the next shipment from China. The Argos Spear and Jackson 41cm cordless has excellent reviews and a very good Which report. It comes with 2 x 40v batteries. I hope not dragging and caring for a cable will make mowing a little easier.

            How about popping in to a local Stihl dealership. Stihl battery mowers are manufactured by Viking and you can have a peep at what’s on offer. The batteries are also used on other equipment so you might like to add more tools along the line.

              Hi @Liz the pot , I bought a Spear and Jackson 43cm from Argos. Really pleased with it. It comes with 2 battery's, but one will easily mow my two lawns. No to heavy so makes mowing quite a bit easier, and not having to control and wrap cables is a dream. OK its not professional quality but for the price of £280 I am really impressed:blue thumb:

                Great stuff HarryS. I had a little Bosch one that lasted 6 years of throwing it about doing awkward lawns and went pop in the end with smoke! Can’t complain, it worked hard.
                Can’t go wrong for £280, should be just right for your needs.
