What are the main features of the Webb WEH18 hand push mower?

This traditional design hand push mower has a cylinder with five hardened steel blades. There is a choice of nine heights of cut ranging from 25 to 76mm and these are easy to adjust with a simple lever. It has a broad cutting width of 46cm and a robust rear roller for a striped finish. It comes with a front-loading grass collecting bag with a capacity of 22 litres.

What is the Webb WEH18 hand push mower like to use?

The mower comes with clear, detailed instructions and it was easy to put the handle together and attach it to the mower. The handle lacks padding or grip and as this machine is heavier than the other mowers in our test this extra detail would have been helpful and made it easier to manoeuvre the mower around the lawn. However, it cuts precisely and well and although it doesn’t mow quite as low as some of the mowers in our test there are nine different heights to choose from plus it tackles longer grass effortlessly and the roller stripes the lawn well. The height of cut is easy to adjust and the cutting width is wide making this ideal for medium sized gardens. Alternatively it will save on trips to the compost heap to empty the grass box on smaller lawns.

Is the Webb WEH18 hand push mower easy to store?

This mower is wide and not as easy to lift and carry as others but the handle unscrews and can be folded down for storage, making it easier to store out of the way when not in use.

Is the Webb WEH18 hand push mower good value for money?

This is a high performing mower, ideal for anyone who wants a quality cut without the hassle of a petrol or electric mower. It's very competitively priced for the level of performance and features and comes with a two-year warranty. We think it’s good value for money.
