Product Description

Product Description

The Bosch Rotak 32 Ergoflex - A powerful electric rotary lawnmower ideal for small-sized lawns

Made in UK

The Rotak 32 Ergoflex is packed full of incredible features to ensure you get a pristine lawn every time. The mower has a high speed 1200 W Bosch ‘Powerdrive’ motor that enabling you to cut long grass with ease, helping trim that start-of-season growth. Featuring innovative grass combs, this lawnmower is able to easily cut up to or over the edge of your lawn giving a more thorough cut. It has a full 32 cm cutting width, ideal for small to medium sized lawns and offers a range of adjustable cutting heights, from 30 to 60 mm.

Bosch ‘Powerdrive’: giving you maximum power

Running at 3600 rpm, the Rotak 32 Ergoflex is one of the lightest and fastest mowers of the Bosch range. The high speed 1200 Watt motor and innovative gear set work together to keep the blade running at 3600 rpm by altering the torque supplied by the motor. When the going gets tough, the system senses the increased load on the blade and increases the torque to the motor.

Ergoflex System--for practical, comfortable gardening

The sleek Bosch Ergoflex design is based around the comfort and simplicity of computer console handsets, ensuring support and ease of movement. The mower can be operated left, right, one or two handed, horizontally or vertically, giving you 8 different grip positions to control the mower. With an adjustable working height and multi-position handle, optimal power transfer is achieved. Adjusting the mower to your body you can improve posture and reduce muscle strain. Bosch Ergoflex Lawnmowers are the first ever garden products to achieve Ergonomic Certification.

Rotak Edge Trimming System
Grass combs--mow right up to the edge

With inset front wheels and innovative grass combs, the Rotak 32 Ergoflex can cut grass growing close to or over the edge of the lawn. This ensures that no strips of uncut grass are left behind even when cutting around flower beds, walls or paths.

Height of cut adjustment

Decide from three different height of cut positions ranging between 20 – 60 mm. Choose a different height depending on the lawn condition or to most suit your own preference.

Rotak Roller
Get stripes with the rear roller

With the rear roller you can get that stately home look in your own garden, giving you precise stripes all over your lawn. Additionally, and importantly, the rear roller offers stability over lawn edges and prevents scalping.

Lightweight and easy to carry and store--plus 10 m cable

Lightweight at only 8 kg, and with its integrated carry handle, the Rotak 32 Ergoflex is easy to carry and store. It comes complete with a 10 m cable making it ideal for small to medium sized lawns.

Large grassbox--less emptying

With a large 31 Litre grassbox, you won’t have to spend as much time emptying grass cuttings - so more time can be spent gardening.

I have moved house, which had a very large garden, therefore I needed a petrol mower.
Now I have a smaller garden, so I thought I would go for this Bosh model.
By the time the mower arrived, the grass was over 8 inches in height, I set the height mid-way and the mower just cut through the grass with-out any problems what so ever.
Like previous electric lawn mowers, I was waiting for the cut-out to drop in, but it never happened.
Looking at the slightly larger bosh model, I did find the mechanism for adjusting the height a bit iffy, but this model approaches the height adjustment slightly different, and I feel it operation is flawless.
This is a brilliant designed mower, you will not be disappointed.

Purchased to replace an older Flymo of similar size that finally decided not to work. I had previously replaced the safety switch on the handle (defective - you'd think a recall in order) and the price for the switch was one-third of a new mower, so when the motor stopped (probably brushes) I trundled it off to Recycling.

The Bosch is the "Ergo" model and only 32cm wide. Very maneuverable and light. The grass catcher is secure and packs in a lot of clippings before needing to be emptied, but can get heavy enough to tip the mower back when you let go (not a problem). It's a slightly noisier (or a less pleasant noise?) than the Flymo was but not painfully loud. Cuts well and has an easy height adjustment. One reason to go for this smaller model was poor reports on the larger mowers' grass catchers and the reportedly stiff height adjust. This 32cm model is fine on both counts.

The power cord is slightly shorter than the Flymo was. I suppose that's a way to save a few pence. The "Ergo" handle is nice as I am tall and a higher grip is more comfortable. The machine goes together in five minutes out of the box (grass catcher is almost origami) and after use the handle folds down to fit smaller storage places. There is no obvious provision to wrap the cord up - I loop it around the handles but then it must be slowly unwrapped before use. (The Flymo had cord clips that the cord could be slipped off quickly).

Recommended for its maneuverability and performance. Obviously a smaller unit so good for anyone not wanting to wrestle with a heavier mower and with a small lawn, or as a second mower for those tight areas in fancy gardens.

Excellent mower for the smaller lawn and a good compromise of size v. cost. Ergoflex handles/safety switches are a worthwhile improvement over single switch 'flat' tubular handles. Mower is a tad smaller than foreseen and had I realised I may have gone for a slightly bigger model mostly to gain a larger grass box. But I am extremely happy with this mower which being smaller is easier to store. No problem aligning the tongues/slots of the two part grass box. If you do get it wrong the soft plastic is very flexible enabling the tongues to be easily prised from the slots with a small screwdriver or similar for another try. In use the grass box could not be easier to quickly detach and replace and the height adjustment is a cinch. Excellent product.

Bought this as a replacement for a geriatric hover mower and loved it from the start. Assembly was quick and easy, and the grass box just clicked into place with no problems, despite some reviews suggesting it might be a problem.
I have problems with my back and hips and used to ache like mad after mowing my not-very-big lawn before. This mower is really light which makes it so easy to use. I love the dual handle controls too. My lawn now looks noticeably better than before with a nice even cut. I use it on the middle height setting and it leaves the grass neat without being shorn and damaged.
The only slight negatives are that I have to use an extension lead for the far corner...it's only fractionally too short and my lawn is not that big. And it can be a little awkward manoevuring when turning close to a wall.
But overall would highly recommend

I ordered the ergoflex 32 which was promptly delivered.

It is a good mower but it took me ages to put together (all other reviewers mention grass box but that was the easy bit). Maybe I'm just not good with pictogram instructions but I struggled fitting the handles (Mower kept rolling away, or I'd get one screw in and the other side would fall out, also had a couple of bits left over).

Anyway once I got that sorted I did get the grass mown and have to say this mower was way quicker than my old Qualcast (not as heavy and seemed to hold more grass). However it is very light so if like me you don't have good balance and there is a bit of a slope in your lawn it is very easy to tip this model up (mow fresh air instead of grass).

I had previously borrowed a Rotak 32 from a neighbour which is why I went for the Bosch. I thought this model being slightly heaver and having handle choice may be better for me but I could probably have gone with the Rotak 32 as I actually think that was easier to use and had better cut 20mm and got closer to the edges of my lawn (the Ergoflex is 30mm) .

That said I have only used both once so I'm sure weather permitting I will get more used to the model I chose. If you have a bigger lawn than my smallish one though you may need a mower with longer cable as this one did not seem that long.

Over-all good price and powerful machine so would recommend. Not sure how long it will last as not too sturdy. (So fingers crossed).

A big plus I forgot to mention my old mower made my whole body ache after use but absolutely no backache with this mower.
