This handles well and feels lightweight and easy to move and lift. A single lever adjusts the height of cut which is very simple and there are 6 pre-set heights to choose from across a broad range.

You have the choice of collecting your grass clippings in the 35L grass box, which has a viewing window so you can check when its needs emptying, or using the mulching plug and returning them back to the lawn – a grass deflector flap at the back directs them down into the grass.

The handle folds down halfway and the grass collecting box can be removed. It’s light enough to lift up onto a shelf.
