After completing the Mountfield Corded Electric lawnmower review, we also wanted to review the Mountfield Cordless Electric lawnmowers in their range to see if they perform as good as the leading brands in the UK market. Similar to the Corded Lawnmowers, the Cordless models also have the Mountfield Princess and the Mountfield Electress lawn mowers and they all have the batteries and the chargers included in the pack

Mountfield Princess Cordless Lawnmower Review – 2 options
There are 2 main options available when it comes to Mountfield Princess Cordless lawnmowers and they are the Mountfield Princess 34cm 48V 500 series cordless Lawn mower which has 1 battery and the Mountfield Princess 38cm 48V 500 series cordless Lawn mower which includes 2 batteries. The second battery is used as back up for larger lawn areas and you can charge one battery while you are using the other.
Option 1: Mountfield Princess 34cm 48V 500 Series Cordless Lawnmower
This cordless lawnmower under the Mountfield range is a popular choice among lawnmowers and it offers a mowing path of 34cm and a single 2Ah battery and the charger in the pack. It’s a small compact 48V lawnmower that weighs only 12kg so pushing it around the lawn is a breeze and the deck is made using robust ABS Polypropylene.
You get the mulch plug, rear roller and side deflector included with this lawnmower and the grass collection box has a capacity of 35 litres which is average for a lawnmower of this size. There are 6 mowing height options that range from 2.5cm to 7.5cm and the motor power operates at 860W.
Price Guide: £250 - £350
Option 2: Mountfield Princess 38cm 48V 500 Series Cordless Lawnmower
The second Mountfield Princess is the 38cm 48V version that includes two 2Ah batteries in the pack which allows you to cover larger areas in one mowing session. This prevents you having to stop and recharge as you can use one battery after the next but the additional battery does increase the overall price of the package in a big way.
The grass collection box is slightly bigger at 40 litre capacity and you have the same mowing height options of 2.5cm to 7.5cm. This particular lawnmower though has the rear roller for the striped effect plus the mulch plug to return the grass clippings to the soil as a natural fertiliser. As the mowing width is wider, the overall weight of the lawnmower is increased to 14kg
Price Guide: £350 - £450

Mountfield Electress Cordless Lawnmower Review – 2 options
There are several size options available under the Mountfield Electress Cordless range and the 2 options that stand out for us is the Mountfield Electress 30cm 20V Cordless Mower which includes one 4Ah battery and the Mountfield Electress 34cm Cordless Lawn mower that includes 2 batteries for dealing with larger mowing areas.
Option 1: Mountfield Electress 30cm 20V Cordless Lawnmower
The smaller Mountfield Electress 20V lawnmower offers a mowing path of 30cm and it includes 1 battery and a charger in the pack. This is designed for small town house type lawns and you can expect to get 15 to 20 minutes runtime on the battery depending on grass conditions. As it is smaller, it comes with a much lower price tag so this is the best solution for you if you need the lowest possible price.
It is part of their Freedom series of gardening tools where the battery is interchangeable with other freedom based tools within their branding portfolio. It can still mow areas 100-150m2 and recharging the battery will take around 2 hours from what we have seen.
Price Guide: £150 - £200
Option 2: Mountfield Electress 34cm 40V Cordless Lawnmower
A larger Mountfield Electress cordless lawn mower offers a wider mowing path of 34cm and it is also designed for dealing with medium mowing areas 200-250m2 as you have 2 batteries in the pack to get the mowing job completed in one mowing session. The battery is interchangeable within the Freedom Mountfield range which is good to know and the grass box is slightly larger with a capacity of 35 litres.
Even though it is larger, the weight is still only 12kg so it is very manageable when it comes to pushing it around your lawn. The charger included is a dual charger so both batteries can be charged at the same time and recharging will take around 2 hours on average.
Price Guide: £200 - £300

Pros for the Mountfield Cordless Lawnmowers
- You have the rear rollers included in the design plus the mulch plug and side deflector on the Princess range (not on Electress) which are not available on many other brands
- You get a good range of options within the range as you are not limited just to one edition – you can go as low as 9kg weight or 12kg weight or even 14kg weight
- There are options with 2Ah batteries for smaller lawns and lawnmowers with 4Ah batteries for larger lawns so you are not limited to just 1 battery type
- The larger lawnmowers with the 2 batteries can cover areas as big as 250m2 which works well for people seeking a backup additional battery
Cons for the Mountfield Cordless Lawnmowers
- There are no self-propelled electric lawn mowers in the range so you need to do all the pushing yourself (as they are lightweight, pushing them is not all that bad anyway)
- You need to be extra careful with your final selection as the smaller versions only have 1 battery and the larger ones have 2 batteries – double check this before you buy
- The batteries are susceptible to degradation over time and spare batteries are more difficult than you think to source plus they are also more expensive that we thought
- The grass box is a little flimsy and needs to be treated with care and attention to avoid any breakages
- Tougher mowing conditions deplete the battery charge a lot quicker and it lacks the power needed for dealing with medium to long grasses – you need to start on higher mow heights and work your way down

Would we recommend the Mountfield Cordless Lawnmowers? To be honest, we have seen and used much better Cordless lawnmowers elsewhere that perform much better and give a lot less hassle overall. They can still do a fairly good job all the same and the fact that you can get 2 batteries in selected models in a major plus.
Nonetheless, we would still prefer to buy and recommend the Spear and Jackson cordless lawnmowers at Argos instead and further information, reviews, images and prices can be double checked below
