    IMO Cordless lawnmowers are not ready for primetime, to feeble. Too expensive. When I see professionals using them I shall change. 

    I understand what you mean, I have a cordless hedge trimmer, it is marvelous, would not be without it. so am hoping a mower might have the same effect on me  :D
  • I have a cordless hedge trimmer - not a cheap one. I have some tall Beech Hedges, about fifty foout long. I thought it would be a lifesavever not to have a lead, as I had to chuck the lead over from my summer house, to do the outside bits. 
    What I found was that the trimmer simply did not cut through the branches as easily as a powered one (previosuly I had a rubbish Black and Decker job 25 years old). So, I went out and got another wired hedgetrimmer. This made swift work of everything and saved time. 
    Moral?
    I think a battery lawnmower would do a good job, until the going gets tough, then it would struggle. I would wait for battery technology to deliver more oomph. 

    Just  my opinion.

    Your experience of cordless hedge trimmers is the same as mine.  The cordless offerings are probably OK for keeping a hedge trimmed to shape but don't have the power to do anything resembling heavy cutting.  My corded one will pretty much cut through anything which will fit in the teeth.  The cordless simply jams on branches of less than half the size.

    @plant pauper what a great site, I aways look at the top near my name to see if there are any new post's, also have alert to my e-mails, thanks for help
  • I have a GTECH, and find it quite handy, on a fairly large area of grass as long as the grass isn't too long and wet, it is light and easy to lift up steps, to the next patch of grass.

    I bought this one this year from Aldi. It's been good so far for me. My garden takes around 20 mins to mow. I can usually just get 3 mows on 1 fully charged battery. Have a look at the reviews as there are a few.  https://www.aldi.co.uk/gardenline-cordless-lawnmower-36v/p/082915202820000#product-reviews
