Popular Petrol Lawn Mowers @ Homebase UK 2022 – Top Picks


Are you considering buying a Petrol Lawn mower from Homebase over the next few days? If so, then check out our short review which outlines our top 3 options when it comes to buying a Homebase Petrol Lawn mower and covers both self-propelled and push petrol Lawnmowers. As you get on in later years and if pushing a lawnmower has become too difficult to manage, then the self-propelled lawnmower is a serious attraction and you certainly have a lot more energy left over after the job is done. If you are in your younger years and you don’t mind the extra work (along with the lower price), then the push Petrol lawnmower outlined further down on this page will do the trick for you.

Another thing then is the size of the job on hand each week or every second week – if pushing the lawnmower takes hours on end for your large garden, then do yourself a favour and invest in a self-propelled lawnmower which gets around larger gardens a hell of a lot quicker and is easier with a lot less pain and aches in your muscles and joints thereafter. If you need further clarity on our top 3 petrol Lawnmower picks from Homebase, then check out the comparison table outlined further down on this page.

Homebase Petrol Lawn mowers – Top 3 Recommendations

As guide prices can only be shown at the time if this review, please make sure to view the price checkers provided below which will help ensure you have the most accurate up to date price information

Number 1: Qualcast 51cm Petrol Self Propelled Lawn Mower

Brief Overview:

Cutting deck width 51cm
Power engine level 150cc
Briggs & Stratton engine
Self-propelled support
Engine code 625Exi 625E
7 different mow heights
Mowing heights 2.5 – 7.5cm
Thread PVC wheel support
Includes carry handle
Grass collection capacity 65L
Warranty is 2 years

Homebase Petrol Lawnmower overview:

  • Our first recommendation when buying a petrol lawnmower at Homebase is definitely the Qualcast 51cm Petrol Self Propelled Lawn Mower which will not disappoint you and gives you plenty of power and support to mow through thicker grasses, weeds and even damp grasses. Price wise you can expect to get your hands on this for less than £450 and todays updated price tag can be double checked below.
  • This lawn mower comes with a Briggs & Stratton 625Exi 625E engine level 150cc and all the self-propelled support you need for getting around large garden patches in no time at all – it especially works great around steep slopes or hilly terrain when pushing a lawnmower is too much of a chore.
  • When mowing is complete, this lawnmower can be flipped up and folded down which is ideal for people with minimal storage spaces in their shed or back garage. You get a wide mowing width of 51cm (approx. 20 inches), a series of front combs to help with getting a cleaner cut and the grass collection unit worked as well as expected collecting all the grass clippings.
  • The grass collection flap allows easy removing and grass clipping emptying and the handles on top are comfortable to use and move from side to side while going around garden corners, flower beds or trees. This bag of 65 litre capacity for collecting the clippings is a Hybrid bag and you also get a carry handle along with a front bumper as well as 7 different mow height settings. The mow heights are standard and range from 2.5cm up to 7.5cm (for thicker taller patches) which are supported with the PVC thread wheels.
  • You will need to use unleaded petrol for this lawnmower, the noise level emitted is 96 dB(A) which is pretty much standard, and you can expect the warranty to last for the next 2 years to protect your investment

Price Guide: Tends to be £400 to £450 level

Number 2: Webb 53cm High Wheel Self Propelled Petrol Mower

Brief Overview:

4 in 1 system lawnmower
Wider cutting deck 53cm
Approx. 21 inches wide
More power engine 163cc
Briggs & Stratton engine
Readystart 675EXi series
7 mow heights 2.5-7.5cm
Rear and Side Discharge
Rear collect or mulch options
Larger collection capacity 70L
Warranty is 2 years also

Homebase Petrol Lawnmower overview:

  • Our second lawnmower from Homebase that we can recommend is the larger and wider Webb 53cm (21 inches) high wheel self-propelled Petrol Mower which also offers a higher level of power at 163cc and this machine is more than capable of mowing through lush, damp, thicker grasses no problem whatsoever and makes the chore of mowing so much easier to do. It is more expensive than the Qualcast already outlined but you should be able to get your hands on it for less than £500 when seen at the time of this review.
  • You have more options available to you here when it comes to grass clippings as it has the 4 in 1 functionality where you can collect, mulch, rear discharge or even side discharge so if a side discharge is important to you, then skip the Qualcast above and take a closer look at this mower from Webb instead. For the mowing heights, you have 7 settings that range from 2.5cm up to 7.5cm so you can start at the higher levels when the grass has gone out of control and then work your way down to the lower heights once it has become more manageable.
  • The grass collection unit is slightly larger also at 70 litre capacity and the fixtures in place for adding and removing the grass collector are robust and stand up well against harsh handling. Having the self-propelled support works great around rough terrain and slopes and it comes backed with a Briggs and Stratton 163cc 675EXi series Readystart engine – this means that you only have to add oil and never have to worry about changing it.
  • While they are available for sale from Homebase, they are delivered through their suppliers when ordered online so deliveries can take a few days longer to deliver. Either way, this lawn mower worked exactly as expected and comes backed with a 2 year warranty for peace of mind

Price Guide: Higher level of £430 to £480

Number 3: Powerbase 41cm Push Petrol Lawn Mower

Brief Overview:

Push petrol lawn mower
Lower priced alternative
Ideal for bargain hunters
Cutting deck width 41cm
Approx. 16.1 inches wide
Less powerful engine 125cc
Briggs & Stratton engine
5 mow heights 2.5-7.5cm
Smaller grass capacity 45L
Single height lever adjuster
Warranty protection 2 years

Homebase Petrol Lawnmower overview:

  • Our last recommendation at Homebase today is for people who need something for less than £250 and it would be the Powerbase 41cm Push petrol Lawnmower which is a much lower spec mower than the previous 2 options above but comes with a significantly lower price tag which is ideal for people seeking a petrol fuelled lawnmower at the lowest possible price.
  • As it a lower spec and smaller lawnmower, it will take you longer to get the job done as there is no self-propelled support and the cutting width is a good deal narrower at 41cm wide (or approx. 16.1 inches) which ultimately means more passes on your end and more work when it comes to dealing with slopes or difficult terrain.
  • Despite the lower power level of 125cc and smaller size, this machine does live up to its name and it is difficult to fault it in any major way as it gives a satisfactory result overall even though it is not the best lawn mower we have ever used. It comes with a Briggs and Stratton 300e 4 stroke engine which uses unleaded petrol and the starter worked fine even when a second or third pull was needed on the cord.
  • The metal deck looks solid and the handles appeared to be comfortable enough when moving from left to right and there is a lower number of 5 mow height settings but the actual mowing heights offered is the same at 2.5cm to 7.5cm mowing heights.
  • For the grass collections, there is just the standard rear collection (no mulch or side discharge) and the capacity of the grass unit collection is lower at just 45 litres. Despite that, if you don’t mind a smaller sized lawnmower and you need a considerably lower price, then take a closer look at this push Powerbase lawnmower instead which does the job just fine but with the additional workload

Price Guide: Tends to be less than £250

  1. My husband is in the look out for a new Lawnmower, our old one had 8 years, didn’t wanna work anymore, so he’s still searching for the best one, thank God I came across your site and this interesting post as I forgot that Homebase sold petrol self propelled lawnmowers. I will show your page to my husband, he’s the one who knows more about powerful lawnmowers and features of specific machines but straight away the Qualcast looks to be a good investment
