Just bought as a replacement for a 12 year old Wolf mower whose motor died. Have a few Bosch products which are all satisfactory and had read a couple of positive reviews for this model.

What I like is the wide cutting width, 6cm bigger, and the large (50 lt) grass box - a bit less walking . Alo the switch, being across the full width of the handle makes it easy to control.

What I'm not sure about are the combs, bit gimicky probably, and the suction. My old mower vacuumed the grass, the blade was designed as a propellor, the Bosch removes the cut grass but not all the leaves, etc, that fall.

What I don't like is the noise (much, much louder), there's no indication when the grass box is full, and the quality of construction - the plastic feels flimsy, not sure it will last the 12 years of the old.

Would I buy it again, no.
