Is the Cobra M41C lightweight?

This is slightly smaller than other petrol mowers and its new, lightweight polymer deck makes it lighter than other models. It manoeuvres well and with ease.

What is the Cobra M41C like to use?

Came with clear instructions for setting up and use and it is light and well built. It has a wide cutting width of 41cm and the cutting height is easily changed with a single, chunky lever. It has seven different cutting heights, from 25mm for a low finish to 75mm for longer grass. The fabric grass collector has a large 50L capacity and compacts the grass down well.

How easy is the Cobra M41C to store?

The handle folds in half and the grass collector can be folded and left on top so it takes up less room in the  garage.

Is the Cobra M41C good value for money?

This is exceptionally well priced with a new design including its lighter weight polymer deck. It costs less than other less well performing mowers and has a two-year warranty.

Who is the Cobra M41C most useful for?

With its wide cutting width and light weight, this is best for gardeners with shaped lawns and medium size lawns up to 600m².
