Before you begin

A few questions about how you’ll be using your mower can help narrow down your shopping options to find the perfect one.

How large is the lawn?

Smaller spaces are better suited to compact, lightweight mowers. While larger gardens need a more durable and robust lawnmower with greater power and a larger cutting width. The cutting width is the size of the blade – the wider the blade, the wider the strip of grass it will cut. Look out for innovative features that will help make even the toughest mowing job simple.

Where will the lawnmower be stored?

Think about garden access and storage. Do you need to pass through gates to mow your back and front gardens? If so, be sure to measure these in advance of buying to avoid getting a model too big to fit through the doors. Consider storage – make sure you can get it into your shed or garage, as well as having enough space to keep it out of the way.

How close is the lawn to a power source?

A power source close to your lawn gives you more options when it comes to your choice of lawnmower. However, don’t fret if your garden is very large or your lawn is away from the power source – we have a wide range of mowers to suit every situation and size of garden.

Let's go through your options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money I've had the Mountfield SP164 a few weeks now (he's called Lenny the Lawnmower...) and we're getting along just fine. Had a brief issue where I managed to get oil on the air filter (my fault) which led to Lenny cutting out and refusing to start. Divorce was on the cards, but a new air filter (£4.50) sorted the problem immediately and now we're the best of friends again. I've had hover mowers for years but this is my first petrol and I'm glad I made the switch - it's so much easier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money I bought this just over a month ago, very pleased with it light and easy too handle starts first time easy to assemble but the oil filler could be easier to get at

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No regrets Yes, really pleased Chose the self propelled model which makes life easier Took 15 minutes to assemble, no particular problems, all pretty straight forward Does the job no fuss and starts really easily. Suited best to smaller or medium sized gardens why did I choose Mountfield ? Well, my last Mountfield lasted 20 years so why take a chance with another make Very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mountfield SP 164 Nice basic budget self propelled mower;I appreciate why they don't pre fill oil sump but maybe the manufacturers could consider including 0.45 litre 4 stroke oil sachet (with pouring spout).That way they know the consumer will be putting correct quantity and grade of oil into their machines.If you change the oil every season (use a cheap hand held syphon pump to remove old oil from sump) and clean the spark plug,these mowers last for years

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sp 164. Mountfield. My last mountfield served me well for 25yrs so I decided to replace it with a similar make. This model starts first time and cut well. The main fault which can only come to light when you use it is that the speed of the mower is fast which makes it difficult to cut around bends and other similar situations. For this reason I would not recommend this mower for anyone who is expecting a leisurely lawn cutting experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to start Refuses to start, and when it does start it suddenly stops running.
