 ..but I think they eat everything else too don't they, including garden gloves and boots if you leave them laying about. Maybe a sheep would be better? Smile

I cut through the cord on my last mower, meaning I had to incorporate a cable joiner.  I finally got fed up with tripping over the cord and with it getting in the way, and invested in a cordless model. The battery charges pretty fast and it lasts plenty long enough.  I paid an unbelievably good price at Argos.

£200 ..... seems like a lot of money to me, but I only have a patch of grass 20ft x 6ft that needs mowing so I could never justify the expense.

Amazons price is £270.  The battery represents quite a fair size part of the price.  It has been worth every penny.

Ah!

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land



replace 'sword 'with 'mower' and there you have it !

I've done a few cuts with the Gtech battery lawnmower and it does a good job. I got the Gtech because it has a similar cutting width to my corded electric mower. This mostly works out for the best but of course, it is larger blade for the motor to revolve. A smaller blade means less effort for the motor I suppose.

I don't think I'll get rid of the corded mower because it is more powerful. This might not make much difference to cutting the grass but I also use a mower as a lawn vacuum when the leaves come down. I don't think the battery mower would be as good at picking up leaves as the corded mower.
