Good, but not perfect,
This review is from: Bosch Rotak 32R Electric Rotary Lawnmower with 32cm Cutting Width (DIY & Tools)
This mower was bought to replace a flymo that had finally burnt out.
I chose this model principally because it is lightweight and easy to roll around our uneven garden, rather than haul a heavy hover mower around. In this the 32R is very good and much easier on the bcak!
However, the combination of fixed wheels and a rear-mounted grass collection box makes the 32R quite a long and unwieldy mower and this is definitely where it loses out to the flymo, which was easy to zip around. My lawn has a high percentage of moss (it's a shady garden) and this quickly clogs up the vent where clippings are passed into the collection box. The box itself fills very quickly, meaning more halts and trips to the big recycling bin. Finally, the electrical cord appears to be badly positioned. I am always tripping over it or wearing it over my shoulders to keep it out of the way; another problem not encountered with the flymo.
This may sound a negative review - and I'm only giving it three stars - but it's not a bad unit if you can forgive its foibles. Its lightness is great and that is what I bought it for. Oh, and it cuts the grass, too!
