With my current situation I cannot use the petrol mower any more.
I was wondering if any of the Forum members use a cordless mower and which ,in their opinion is the best to get with a budget of up to around £300.

Same as you Damian , the old faithful petrol was getting too heavy to drag around. Courtesy of Argos The Spear and Jackson SJ 40v L.ion powered, has a roller too for stripes but not self propelled £220. Is currently a Which? Best Buy. Cuts very well and actually doesn’t take much longer than the petrol. Battery
asts one hour, then needs one hour to recharge.

The battery only lasts 15 minutes so no good to man or beast!
That’s almost useless run time especially as even two batteries wouldn’t cover it whilst one is charging. Must be the self propulsion aspect that drains it. I think there is a non self propelled variant.

We have the previous push along on a 60v battery. It has enough juice to first strim, then mow both front and back with about 50% left. Takes about 20 to 30 mins.

......been using an electric mower since 1976 albeit with a cable.
Had 3 mowers in that time total cost of the 3 = £150.
Current model cost £80 has a 2000 watt motor ...very powerful.
Battery models too expensive for me!

Why go cordless, you have to charge them up, batteries fail- the power runs down. The cord on mine is 15 meters long and with another 15 meters , covers all the garden front and rear.

We are really looking for self propelled and not petrol, but not cordless.

You would expect around 1000 cycles from a cordless lawn mower battery. Lithium batteries are so much better than the old Nicad ones which did require regular top up charges during periods of non use.

My lithium power tools can go months without a charge and one set of batteries for Bosch kit must be 7 years old. Strange this disposition re batteries there are the same concerns re EV batteries yet Toyota give 15 year warranty providing regular inspections are undertaken.

Same with our Makita lithium batteries as sometimes don't use the drill for months.

Thank you to all who have replied so far.
Whilst I would be happy with a corded mower, it is not for me, it is for my wife when I am no longer here and she would be worried about cutting through the cord.

Despite the negatives about batteries, from my experience with DeWalt batteries they perform very well and like otherclive and buckman have said sometimes they do not need charging for months and still work well.
