With so many options available, choosing a budget lawn mower can be a confusing business. In this video Buyer’s Guide, we run through all the points you need to consider.


We focus on lawn mowers within two price brackets - less than £100 and between £100-200. First, we outline the types of mower available (petrol, corded electric, cordless electric and manually powered push models) and explain the pros and cons of each.

Then, we look at weight, engine size, cutting width and altering the height of cut.

Next up we offer practical advice on the safe use of the various mower types.

Finally, it's time for cleaning and storing the mower.
