Battery, I have one, it's much safer, no cables to mow over.

Three years ago, our Mountfield petrol mower died after 25 years of service - not a bad return on investment; it had a USA Briggs and Stratton engine and wasn't treated that well. I am not sure the modern petrol Mountfields are as good these days. Like the mower, I am starting to knock on a bit and, having moved, wanted something lighter for a smaller front and back garden; an area just a bit too big for dragging a long electric cable around and too small really for a motor mower. At the time, electric mowers seemed more common and we chose a Mountfield electric. It wasn't cheap for a plastic body, battery and a motor but it performs really well and has not let me down this last 3 years. Somehow, the system sent me a second battery and I also bought an electric Mountfield strimmer and all the batteries are compatible. The mower is really light and easy to carry, I remove the battery and grass bin between gardens and it's easy. (it's easy even if they are all attached but I did say I was knocking onSmile.

I guess your choice will also be determined by the area you have to cover, weight and cost etc. I think the electric models are even better now but they are expensive for what you get (not dissimilar perhaps to the cars of late). Mine is not that heavy so the roller leaves the nice lines but they don't last long. It does the job, it is easy to look after and carry. I hope this helps. Chris

I always finish off the edges with nail scissors - I do like a neatly trimmed edge...Wink

How long are the batteries guaranteed for and what's the cost of replacing them?

I wanted a cordless self propelled as I have a back problem. It would set me back about 450 so my wife decided a waste of money. I suggested a robot but that seemed to make her angry. So I said if I cannot get either we are stuck with the existing mains electric mower which I cannot use. Rather than give way she said that she would mow the lawns in future and has ever since.
