Part 1 – Mowers Online UK Petrol Lawnmowers – Top Picks
1, Mountfield SP185 46cm 139cc Self-propelled Petrol Lawn Mower
Our first recommendation from Mowers Online UK would have to be the Mountfield SP185 46cm 139cc self-propelled Petrol rotary Lawnmower which is well stocked and deliveries tend to be 2 to 4 working days only. The price though can vary considerably based on promotion discounts in place when you visit so it could be on sale for less than £300 or it could be in sale for £400 depending on what discounts are in place at certain times of the year.
This self-propelled lawnmower has the Mountfield ST140 OHV 139cc engine, a cutting width of 46cm, a powder coated chassis, a solid recoil starter system and it also includes the mulching feature plus a large 60 litre grass collection unit. It is suitable for lawn sizes of 1500-1800m2, the fuel tank has a capacity of 0.75L and there is a 5 year warranty available as long as it is serviced annually by an approved dealer.
Price Guide: £250 - £420
2, Hayter Harrier 41 Autodrive VS Rear Roller Lawnmower
Another petrol lawnmower that we really liked is the Hayter Harrier 41 Autodrive VS Rear Roller Lawnmower which includes a free starter kit such as the engine oil, fuel container and funnel and it will cost you a good deal more as it was seen on sale for £800+ at the time of our review. At least you get the 90 day money back guarantee and you can also get additional Hayter premium engine oils or Hayter Harrier lawnmowers blades as back up in the future.
This self- propelled lawnmower offers variable speed transmission so the speed can be matched to suit your own walking pace which is a great advantage especially for those who might need a slower walking mowing speed. It includes the Vari-Pitch cutting technology, the rear roller for the striped effect, a 41 inch cutting width and it comes designed with a Briggs and Stratton 625Exi Series petrol engine that needs a 4-stroke oil.
Price Guide: £800 - £950
Part 2 – Mowers Online Electric Lawnmowers – Top Picks
1, Mountfield Electress 34 Li Cordless Lawnmower
If your preference is for a cordless electric lawnmower, then you should consider the Mountfield Electress 34 Li Cordless Mower which offers a great attractive price level and it comes with the dual charger and 2 batteries in the pack. Cordless lawnmowers tend to be very expensive but this particular model offers great value for the amount of money you need to spend. In addition, there is a 5 year warranty and a 90 day money back guarantee for peace of mind.
This is a push cordless lawnmower that is designed for smaller lawns up to 250m in size and it comes designed with a 35cm deck, 6 cutting heights from 2.5cm to 7.5cm and 2 20V lithium ion batteries. The weight of the unit is only 12kg so pushing it is no problem whatsoever and the capacity of the grass collection unit is 35 litres. Recharging the batteries takes around 150 minutes and you can expect a battery runtime of 20 to 30 minutes from the batteries depending on grass conditions.
Price Guide: £200 - £300
2, Cobra MX46SPE Self Propelled 46cm Electric Lawnmower
If you would prefer a self-propelled electric lawnmower, then the model we recommend is the Cobra MX46SPE self-propelled 46cm cut electric Lawnmower which costs a lot more than your average electric corded lawnmower however you have the larger deck and the self-propelled support feature included in the design to assist those who need it.
Sourcing a self-propelled electric lawnmower is more difficult than you think but this particular model from Cobra really does a nice mowing job and it takes away the difficult task of pushing a lawnmower around your lawn especially around sloped terrain.
The mowing heights range from 2.5cm to 7.5cm, the cutting width is 18 inches and it includes a 1800W motor. You also get 4 grass clipping options of rear discharge, side discharge, mulching and rear collect so it offers a lot more than your average corded rotary lawnmower you seen on sale elsewhere from other brands. The grass collection unit is also a lot larger than your average corded mower as it has a capacity of 60 litres and you also get a long 15m power cable which again is longer than your average power cable on a corded lawnmower.
Price Guide: £280 - £330
Part 3 – Mowers Online Robotic Lawnmowers – Top Picks
1, Mowbot 800 28V 2.5Ah Robotic Lawnmower Metallic Green
While some Robotic lawnmowers can cost well over £1000, this Mowbot 28V 2.5Ah Robotic Lawnmower in Metallic Green will cost you a lot less and you should be able to get your hands on it for less than £700 when seen at the time of our review. There are a few different colours to choose from and there are specific models to suit different lawn sizes of up to 400m2, 800m2 and 1200m2 so you are not just limited to one size capacity lawn cutting and mowing.

It has a brushless motor for higher performance, more efficiency and it can be controlled on your smart device using the Mowbot App which allows you to monitor its performance.
