    Cordless Rotary Lawnmower suggestions 12th Mar 18 at 9:43 PM
    I am looking to buy a cordless lawnmower as a replacement for my current hover. Got back problems so I am looking at a rotary with wheels. Small lawn so a 30 to 34 inch cut should do. I have found a few sub 250 including a Worx

    I have a Worx cordless drill that I have been very pleased with.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Funny enough I been looking at the worx lawmowers myself a different model to that one as I have a cordless strimmer already. I have quite a few worx cordless tools and find them great. Enough think I like about the lawnmowers is they pack up into a small profile

    Last time I looked a week or so ago one of there mowers is around 80 cheaper than Amazon

    Battery life tends to decline after a few years, with new batteries needed anywhere between 5-8 years. The cost of batteries can be high. How old is your mower?

    Its a strimmer I have and its around 30 months old its a black and decker 36v I use at allotment mainly and edge cutting on lawn at home. The batteries are very expensive for this model though 60+

    The worx batteries are around 35 each for 2.0 mAh I have two already for tools I use

    I am going for the Worx, Argos have a twin mower strimmer pack but it only has 2 batteries. For the same money I can buy a strimmer for 50 at Wickes and a mower for 150 at Argos and that way get 3 batteries, I already have one battery with my Worx cordless drill so I can always have two fully charged.
