I bought this to replace a burnt out flymo and this is easily the best mower I have ever used. The construction is solid and the grass collection the most efficient I have ever seen.

Worked right out of the box (I've always wanted to say that but as I mostly review books I haven't been able to until now) well, after a bit of assembly. I've used it several times and it is very maneuverable owing to the fairly large wheels. Makes a suitably throaty operating noise so the neighbours will know when you are out cutting with your Bosch.

The range of cut heights is excellent. The wheels are raised or lowered by a chunky gear lever devise and it does take a bit of getting used too because it works in conjunction with a strong spring. With previous machines I've noticed that grass and earth can build up in the blade housing, usually happens with damp or wet grass but with the Bosch it doesn't happen, probably to do with the designed inside curve of the housing. A really nice touch is the carrying handle on the top, seems such a simple idea but plenty of electric mowers don't have it. My only crit is the roller to create stripes is not as wide as the actual cutting strip but as few folks round here will see them I can live with that.

Tip 1: for a long lasting machine: After use I always get rid of grass cuttings with an old paintbrush and my previous Qualcast rotary lasted fourteen years (far longer than manufacturers would like) but now too old, in fact, to replace the cutting blade so I chose a Bosch and so far a good buy.
Tip 2: after you've used the mower and you like it go and buy a replacement blade (I've bought two) because if you look after the machine it will last longer than replacement blades are available.

I had my heart set on a cylinder mower after my black and decker rotary, and petrol rotary had both packed up. Research and reviews however dissuaded me from the popular Qualcast cylinder, and pointed me in the direction of the Bosch Rotak range. I bought one yesterday and, despite having wet grass, mowed both my lawns. The results were really impressive, with the height adjustment easy, the mower being very light and manoevreable, and the collection box doing exactly what its mean to do. My lawns look great, and I am very happy with my purchase. It really pays to do your research, and my thanks go to all previous reviewers for this, and other products.

I was not looking forward to mowing the back lawn with 8 inches of wet grass.
A job that used to take two days has now turned into a half hour job . The Rotek 34 had no problem handling the long wet grass , did not seize up or get clogged up with long grass . Holds a decent amount of grass clippings .
Easy to assemble light enough in use .I am just glad i spent the extra money and bought this machine .

Bought this in 2009, so used regularly for over a year. It's not bad, but I don't find it remotely outstanding (as the majority of reviews would suggest). Yes, it's easy to handle (both to carry and to push over the grass) and the handle folds easily to stow neatly in my garden cupboard. (It really needs as standard the very simple but useful cable holder which Bosch sell as an extra.) However, our "lawn" is bounded by shrubs and this mower does not fit under the lower branches to cut the grass there (something which is no bother for a hover!) The red combs for cutting grass at the sides have no effect on anything that I can see. Most disappointing though is that after 10 months of use in our small garden (maybe 25 square yards of never-very-long grass) the blade stopped turning, though the motor kept spinning. It's (deliberately?) hard to get access to the innards to see what's wrong so rather than risk invalidating the warranty, I took it to a dealer to check. Took six weeks for them to replace the drive belt (saying they were waiting for Bosch to send one out) and charged one third of the original purchase price (as Bosch say belts are not covered by the warranty). I don't believe it was reasonable for a belt to fail so soon, and if it did, replacement should be cheap and user-changeable. I previously had a Flymo hover cutting longer and rougher grass in a much bigger garden - for several years with no problems. Would I buy another Rotak? Absolutely not.

amazon supplied the rotak with free delivery and a large saving.Delivery was quick with no problems The box looked big and the parts looked complicated but I had a friend who put it together for me The general comment that it was not paticularly easy, paticulary the grass box.I have used it today and found it brilliant paticularly after my qualcast cylinder model which was awful.The edging system is great and it leaves good lines.The grass box is adequate and easy to empty,although the cable is slightly short for my usage.The bigger Rotak 40 has a longer cable and might be worth considering if one does not want to bother with extension cables, but at 30 pounds extra is probably not worth the extra.The cable tidy for the handles are worth the extra three pounds or so and these can be obtained from Amazon.The carrying handle is a clever idea and works.All in all the best machine I Have owned
