Small Lawnmower Buyer’s Guide

The Most Common Lawnmowers on the Market

  • Cylinder Lawnmowers - These mowers have a series of blades located at the front and rotate against a fixed bottom blade. Cylinder lawnmowers are ideal for level lawns including ornamental gardens, which generally have short and very fine cuts. The cylinder lawnmower come in a variety of widths and is available as electric, petrol-powered, or hand-pushed models. Lawns mown by this type, unfortunately, need more attention, as they do need more mowing to keep gardens looking great.
  • Rotary Lawnmowers - Rotary lawnmowers are the generally the best choice for keeping normal family gardens trimmed because they are the most versatile type of mower do to their ability to cope with lawns ranging from rough areas of grass to sloping banks. The lawnmower uses blades that rotate horizontally and are available in electric or petrol-powered models. You will also find that this lawnmower is capable of dealing with longer grass for those who do not mow on a regular basis.
  • Hover Lawnmowers - As the name suggests, this is a rotary mower that floats on a cushion of air, just above the grass. These lawnmowers can be very lightweight, easy to push, and are extremely easy to maneuver. This can make the hover lawnmower perfect for gardens that contain curved edges, borders, or flower beds.
  • Cordless Lawnmowers (Electric & Petrol) - These lawnmowers can be electric or petrol-powered. Cordless battery lawnmowers are becoming more and more popular because of the lower costs of the lithium-ion batteries and its performance improvements. However, petrol-powered lawnmowers offer the power and range benefits of a cordless engine. With the additional power available, these models can be easier to push around on large lawns because they can also be self-propelled.

A great feature in its self, you are also given the option to use the rear roller, which provides the traditional beautiful stripe to your lawn which you don't get with all mowers so its nice to see this feature incorporated into this model.

We do really like the Flymo Chevron 34 VC Electric Wheeled Rotary Mower, not only does it look fantastic and perform well, it's also available at a relatively affordable price, specially when you take the power and features into account.

We found Its more of a personal choice between the Bosch Rotak 32R and this Flymo model, The Flymo is slightly larger but also slightly more expensive.?

How to Choose Your Lawnmower Based on Garden Size

With electric, battery, and petrol-powered lawnmowers available for purchase, it can become very difficult to choose which one is best suited for your garden and its needs.

  • Small Lawns - Smaller lawns are usually up to 100m² and usually require mowers that are either electric or battery operated with a cutting width of 300mm. Electric mowers are usually the most popular choice because they are lower in cost, easy to store, and lightweight.

    Electric mowers are light, fairly maintenance free, and extremely easy to use, while cordless battery powered mowers are low maintenance and even easier to use because they allow you the freedom to mow without worrying about extension cords thanks to there powerful lithium-ion batteries and fast charging times. However, petrol-powered mowers also give you freedom, as well as giving the maximum power and run-time without a cord, the downside though is they are usually much heavier, noisy and require more maintenance such as changing oil filters and spark plugs.
  • Medium Lawns - Medium lawns are generally 100 to 250m² and can generally be mowed by a variety of lawnmowers. Electric, battery, or petrol-powered; it’s up to you, as long as the mower’s cutting width is between 350 to 400mm. With such a wide variety to choose from, you just have to compare and contrast the pros and cons of each one, and decide which you would rather.
  • Large Lawns - Large lawns are considered 250m² or more and are best mowed with a petrol lawnmower with a cutting width of at least 400mm. With a larger lawn, you will definitely want a mower that has a wide cutting range and is easy to push. Whether you choose a cordless battery powered or a petrol mower, you are given extreme maneuverability because you do not have to worry about a long cord. You will also find that self-propelled petrol mowers will make your chore even easier.

Important Points to Consider

  • Self-propelled or Push Mower - While push mowers are inexpensive, easy to maintain, and ideal for small gardens; self-propelled mowers are a lot easier to handle. You can also find that some self-propelled mowers come with a variable speed setting that will suit your own walking pace.
  • Collection Grass Box - With a bigger collection box, you will find that you do not need to stop as often to empty it. This is something worth considering if you have a large lawn.
  • Stripe Effect - If you are looking for a mower that creates a stripe effect on your lawn, then you will need to choose a mower with a rear roller. When the mower cuts, the roller moves over the grass and compresses it in one direction.

Features to Consider

As stated before, when you are seeking a lawnmower, there are so many brands now that provide many different features.

Grass Collection Box

  • Most collection boxes are detachable, but some are not. Be sure to check this feature before you purchase.
  • You will also need to consider the size of the collection box, as you will need to stop mowing and empty it. The smaller the box, the more frequent you will need to stop, and the more time-consuming your task may become.
  • If you do not want to collect the cut grass, then you may want to consider a lawn mower that offers a ‘mulching action.’ With this, the lawnmower still cuts the grass, but instead of collecting the grass, it cuts it into smaller pieces before it is released back onto the ground. The mulching action allows the grass to break down faster while allowing the nutrients to penetrate your lawn faster and keeping it healthy and green.

Cutting height

  • Always look for the number of cutting heights a lawn mower provides. Lawnmowers that permit you to adjust the height at which the grass is cut makes the mower more suitable to use all year round.
  • You will want to keep your grass at a longer length during the spring, fall, and winter. During the summer, you will want to cut the grass much shorter.
  • When you have an adjustable cutting height, you will be able to rest easy knowing that your grass will remain green all year round.

Blade type

There are two types of blades:

  • Metal - best when cutting long or wet grass and provides a much sharper and cleaner cut, longer llife, more robust
  • Plastic- best used on shorter, dry grass, usually cheaper to replace

Our final conclusion

All eight of these lawnmowers are great choices for your small lawn and garden and come under the 'best lawn mower for small gardens' category.

Flymo Easi Glide 300

The Flymo Easi Glide 300 Electric Hover Collect Lawnmower has a powerful 1300W motor with an adjustable cutting height, ranging from 12mm – 32mm. The 20L grass collection box reduces how often you must stop to empty the box. These are very beneficial features that make it easy to use because of its lightweight design.

It is also easy to carry, store, and empty the grass collection box. However, most likely due to the fact that it hovers, it can blow the grass all over your garden, things can be sucked towards the blade, and you may find yourself carrying it more because it does not have wheels.


Flymo FTL 330 Turbo Lite - Best Lawnmower when not collecting grass

The Flymo FTL330 Turbo Lite Electric Hover lawnmower is perfect for small gardens because it is lightweight, easy to use, and you do not feel tired after mowing your lawn. It has an 1150W motor and a 33cm metal blade.

This lawnmower also has four adjustable cutting heights that range from 10mm – 30mm. The FTL330 Turbo Lite also comes with a 10 meter cable. It is also easy to store away as it has foldable handles. However, it has been known to ‘mysteriously’ stop working within the first few months of use but is covered by Flymo warranty should a fault develop within the first 12 months.


Bosch Rotak 32R - Best Pick Award

The Bosch Rotak 32 R Electric Rotary lawnmower is a lightweight electric rotary lawnmower that is perfect to use in small or medium sized gardens. The Rotak 32 R lawnmower has a 1200W ‘Powerdrive’ motor that is capable of cutting long grass with ease.

It incorporates grass combs which allows you to cut right up to the edge of your lawn and also includes a rear roller that gives your lawn the traditional striped lawn appearance and provides the lawnmower with more stability and helps prevent scalping.

This lawnmower also comes with a 31L grass collection box that comes with a carry handle. You are also given a two year warranty with the option to extend it to three years if you register your machine on the manufacturer’s website within the first 28 days of purchase. The 10 meter cable can get in the way while mowing and the cordless version is very expensive and may be not within every bodies budget. Overall the corded version offers excellent value for money while still having great features which is why we awarded it our 'Best Pick'.


Flymo Chevron 34 VC - Also Great

The 1400W motor in the Flymo Chevron 34 VC Electric Wheeled Rotary lawnmower is powerful and effective for your garden. This lawnmower provides a rear roller that ensures a traditional striped lawn and also includes an edging comb that makes it easy to mow up to and over edges. The 40L grass collection box comes with a vision window so you can see when the box is full.

This lawnmower is also easy to empty and comes with cable storage. However, the motor has been known to burn out and the plastic height adjustment mechanism has been known to snap, as it is made from plastic. It also only comes with 12 months warranty which could be better when you consider Bosch mowers come with 24 month with the option to extent to 3 years for free.


Bosch Rotak 32 LI - Expensive but the 'cream of the crop'

The Bosch Rotak 32 LI Ergoflex Cordless lawnmower is a lightweight lawnmower that is a perfect choice for your small to medium sized garden. It is powered by a 36 V/2.6 A Lithium-ion battery and has a 32cm steel cutting blade.

This lawnmower also comes with grass combs, which provides you with the ability to mow up to and over edges of your lawn. It also has an easy to adjust cutting height that ranges from 30mm – 70mm for the perfect cut.

This machine also comes with a two year guarantee that can be extended to three years when you register it on the manufacturer’s website within the first 28 days of purchase.

Unfortunately, it is also a very expensive lawnmower as it uses new cordless technology, however if it's within your budget, it is a brillant little lawnmower you'll wish you had invested in sooner. 


Bosch AHM 36 G Manual - Best simple mower, no electric needed.

The Bosch AHM 38 G Manual Garden lawnmower is a five bladed cylinder mower with a 38cm cut width. It has high geared side wheels that make it easy to push across the lawn without ripping the grass. It also comes with an adjustable cutting height that ranges from 15mm to 43mm and comes complete with a 25L grass collection box which not all manual lawnmowers come with.

This lawnmower is lightweight and is very affordable. However, the instructions for assembly are poor and the height adjustment mechanism is made of plastic, which makes it easy to break if your not careful. Overall a quality bit of kit and probably the cheapest option available.


Einhell GE-EM 1233 - Also Great

The Einhell GE-EM 1233 1250W Electric Rotary lawnmower comes with a powerful 1250W carbon powered motor that comes with a carry handle to provide easy transportation.

Its wide wheels provide increased handling and protection of your lawn. The edge cutting system cuts grass against walls efficiently.

This lawnmower also comes with a 10 meter cable and has five adjustable cutting height settings that range from 20mm – 60mm. The Einhell GE-EM electric lawnmower also comes with a two year warranty. However its 10 meter cable can get in the way while mowing.


Qualcast Electric - Best budget model, excellent value

Lastly, the Qualcast Electric Rotary lawnmower has a 1200W motor and has a steel blade that is 32cm in width. This lawnmower also comes with three adjustable cutting heights which is somewhat restricting when you consider some of the other models have 5 height steps which range from 20mm to 60mm.

The Qualcast Electric lawnmower does however provide a two handed safety switch and a quick stop blade brake which is assuring. However, it is difficult to figure out how to change the cutting height from the diagrams. Overall a great affordable option less the fancy features that get's the job done.


Final Recommendations

Overall, these lawnmowers are great machines to have for your lawn. They all provide very beneficial features that allow you to mow your garden with ease and comfort. However, it depends on how much you are able to spend on your machine and which features you really want.

Best manual mower

If you are looking for something affordable and without a cable, then the Bosch AHM 38 G Manual Garden lawnmower may be the best fit for you as it is a five bladed cylinder mower that is easy to push and comes with a 25L grass collection box.

The very best mower for small gardens

You may want to also look closely at the Bosch Rotak 32 LI Ergoflex Cordless lawnmower. Unfortunately, this model is expensive at nearly 3 times more than the corded equivalent, but it provides many features that can help you mow your lawn with ease without having to worry about power cords or petrol.

However, if you are not picky about a power cord, there are many to choose from in this list that can mow your lawn with great efficiency.

If we were to recommend one corded electric mower. it would have to be either the Bosch Rotak 32 R Lawn Mower or Flymo Chevron 34 VC.

Both models are great mowers with lots of positive reviews online and both offer excellent value for money at under £100, if your want a slightly larger model, the Flymo Chevron is probably the better choice but slightly more expensive
