On Test – Cordless mowers (small to medium lawns)

Choose the best cordless mower for small to medium lawns, with the help of our in-depth product reviews.

A mower is an essential piece of machinery for any gardener who wants to keep a neat lawn. Until recently, the main options were petrol- or electric-powered models, or manual push mowers for energetic gardeners. Now, there’s another choice: cordless, battery-powered mowers, with rechargeable, long-life lithium-ion batteries.

In October 2017 we tested 18 cordless mowers, including 12 models suitable for small to medium lawns. Scroll down to see the testing criteria and to find out which models earned the BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine ‘Best Buy’ badge.
