Cable - you have to be very aware where it is!

As a middle aged lady seeking to replace an ageing petrol mower with something lighter and faster, I have been thrilled with this excellent machine. The basic machine is made of heavy duty plastic type material, and whilst this seemed rather "cheap" after the metal mower I had before, I love the...

“Disappointing Bosch”

published 15/06/2008

Large cutting capacity

Noise, Noise & More Noise

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...

Good

published 24/09/2008

Bought about 2 years ago. Initial delighted with it - much faster and easier to use than my previous Qualcast cylinder mower, and good stripes to boot! Unfortunately, the mechanism that adjusts the height has just broken and having searched the web it doesn't look as though it can be replaced. I know its not hugely expensive but surely it should last more than 2 years??? Also, the handle came off the grass bin soon after I bought it - not a serious problem, but it tends to bear out those who refer to its cheap, plasticky build quality. Will miss it, but probably won't buy another.

Very happy - only used it for one cut so far - on-off bar better than smaller Bosch models which use handle as can be used left handed. Collecting part effective, can be packed full and holds a lot and machine not too heavy to lift over steps

“Bosch Rotak 40”

Easy to assemble, good cut

a little heavy but to be expected for a large mowe...

I recently purchased one of these mowers for my Husband as our new house has a 100ft lawn. He is delighted with the cut he gets from this mower. The mower is easy to assemble and takes less than 5 minutes to clip together. Once up and running the motor sounds like a futuristic aeroplane - it...

Not for me

published 13/07/2008

This mower, bosch rotak 40 is total rubbish. I've had my mower for just over a year (replacing a worn out qualcast electric). The whole thing has fused, blue smoke coming out of the motor which means burnt out windings. Try to get in contact with bosch???? impossible. Don't buy this mower, buy a sheep. I give it a zero star rating. M.
