Product Description

Product Description

The Bosch Rotak 40 Ergoflex - A powerful electric rotary lawnmower ideal for Large-sized lawns

Made in UK

The Rotak 40 Ergoflex is packed full of incredible features to ensure you get a pristine lawn every time. The mower has a high speed 1700 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 40cm cutting width, ideal for medium sized lawns and offers a range of adjustable cutting heights.

Bosch ‘Powerdrive’: giving you maximum power

Running at 3600 rpm, the Rotak 40 Ergoflex is one of the lightest and fastest mowers of the Bosch range. The high speed 1700 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 40 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.

Rotak Edge Height Adjustment
Height of cut adjustment

Decide from ten different height of cut positions ranging between 20 – 70 mm, with one handle. 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 15m cable

Lightweight at only 12.4 kg, and with its integrated carry handle, the Rotak 40 Ergoflex is easy to carry and store. It comes complete with a 15m cable making it ideal for large sized lawns.

Large grassbox--less emptying

With a large 50 Litre grassbox, you won’t have to spend as much time emptying grass cuttings - so more time can be spent gardening.

    The Bosch Rotak was delivered promptly from the supplier. I bought it as a replacement for my trusty Mountfield Princess which lasted nearly 20 years with trouble free operation! Decided this one looked a bit lighter and I was getting older! Also the reviews on Amazon were very good.

    As soon as I put it together the trouble started. First of all I experienced the same problem as other reviewers - the screws would not fit in the rods that connect with the base. I managed to get them to hold, projecting from the rod, and duly mowed my lawn - which I must say was a very good cut. After the mowing the screws had worked loose and this could have been a considerable hazard had the parts separated whilst on the move!

    Also the snap clip on one side which held the handlebar onto the metal poles also snapped - well it was only plastic after all so beware and use light pressure only!

    I duly phoned the Bosch warrantly line immediately. They collected the mower the very next day, duly repaired the whole thing (the screws now fit!) and returned within a week. In short, excellent Bosch customer service. However the fact that I am the 3rd to mention in these reviews about the screws not fitting is an indictment of Bosch quality control.

    And no - unlike the other reviewers I am not prepared to drill holes into a product which is allegedly quality and may invalidate the warranty. That is up to the manufacturer who hopefully will learn from his mistakes.....

    So in summary, great mower, great customer service from Bosch but what a shame so many of us seem to have the same problem.. wonder how long it will last.......

    I was previously using a Flymo with a 30L collection box. When the motor burnt out, I started looking at reviews.

    I have never been a keen gardener, and the thought of spending more than £50 on a device to complete a job I have always looked on as a chore seemed a waste of money.

    I also have a small garden.

    Having read reviews, the entire Bosch Rotak range was obviously brilliant and well liked by users. My In-Laws, who have a large garden and are keen gardeners, recommended the Rotak, suggesting a 32 would be enough for me. However, reading more reviews, the 40 sounded amazing, and the smaller units were perhaps prone to being a little less robust.

    The only negative reviews I'd seen about the Rotak 40 was that it was heavy, and the grassbox was complicated to put together. Therefore, I took the plunge. I could have bought it £5 cheaper from another site, but paid more knowing Amazon would be easier to return it to if required.

    OK, the 50L grassbox takes a few minutes to line-up the sections correctly, but you only do it once, and it feels strong when assembled.

    And I agree, the mower is heavy, but if it wasn't, it wouldn't have done such a great job on my lawns.

    I was previously spending 2 hours a fortnight mowing my lawns, cutting edges and sweeping up. This was in part because my Flymo did not successfully collect the cuttings, so I ended up doing each line twice....once to cut, once to vacuum up the cuttings. This mower negates the need for that, and I realised the light-weight nature of my Flymo, and obviously the hover design, caused it to sit 'high', on top of my mossy lawns, trimming very little.

    I was in need of a new lawn mower and after doing some research the Bosch Rotak range seemed to be the most popular. Glad I listened to others! This Lawnmower was great, easy to put together, although there are not written instructions so some people may find it more difficult just following pictures. The handle bars needed to be screwed into the base which originally were very stiff and didnt screw in fully, so i had to drill the holes to make them slightly larger, after this it was a doddle, everything else just clicked into place.

    This mower made short work of my garden which measures 25m long, the push buttons on the handles make the job a breeze, there are number of ways you can hold the mower which make it more comfortable to use. You cannot accidently switch the mower on either as you need to hold the middle button down and then press and hold any of the four other buttons.

    The 50L box did its job, no mess with grass cuttings spilling or making a mess on the lawn. Very easy to remove to empty it and it just slots back into place when ready. You can of course use the mower without it too.

    The mower has a useful handle on the top so carrying it is easier, although because it is quite large you may need both hands.

    Apart from the handle bars i'm not sure what difference this has compared to the older model (Bosch Rotak 40).

    Just to correct other reviewers comments about the screw hole size in the metal tubing. Fit the screws in the tubing "before" fitting the tubing into the plastic frame. The screws are intentionally tight and cut a thread in the metal tube as they are screwed in. Once they are screwed in, you can remove them and then proceed as per the instructions, the screws will then fit easily, as the threads have been "pre-cut".
    Hope this helps.
