Hi - Im in the process of moving into my new home which has a lovely big garden. Currently it is all laid to lawn, which I plan to change over time with a veg plot and flower beds, but right now I need a lawnmower to tackle the fast-growing grass! :-). The surface is extremely uneven, both sloped and full of fissures (not sure yet if that is due to the large trees, or water run-off etc .. but will find out in time hopefully). Im a female in mid 50's, so looking for a battery operated, self-propelling, not too heavy, manageable machine. Ideally budget £200 or under, but with some flexibility. I do have a couple of Bosch 18v batteries for power tools, but wasnt sure about the lawnmower in that Bosch 18v family, as sounds like its more suited to very small lawns. Any recommendations? Many thanks in advance!

I don’t know if these prices include batteries. Before choosing a cheaper model check that it can cope with the grass you have and the battery is powerful enough to mow the lawn in one go.
At first I loved my cordless Rotak but as the trigger mechanism is entirely plastic it eventually wears and starts repeatedly disengaging mid-mow. They may have corrected that in the Mk.2
I'd really like to replace mine but am not prepared to buy new batteries.
