Lockdown has divided us into two types of gardeners: Those who, like us, have let nature take its course and have left their lawn to grow wild, meaning it is now too long to be able to enjoy sitting out.
And those who are keen gardeners, who have used this time at home to experiment with new tools and gardening equipment to ensure their lawn is in pristine condition and could rival a cricket pitch.
Whether you are venturing into the garden for the first time, or consider yourself to be a green fingered guru, there is one item that should be on your radar, as it is getting rave reviews - Argos’ Challenge 31cm Corded Rotary Lawnmower.
Why we rate it
Argos’ Challenge 31cm Corded Rotary Lawnmower is a lightweight electric lawnmower, which claims to make light work of your gardening duties.
The rotary mower boasts a fold top handle, so you can store it away with ease.
You can also adjust its height so you will not be left with back pain after a day channelling your inner Alan Titchmarsh.
Plus, the lawnmower is fitted with a metal blade measuring 31 cm in width, which offers three cutting heights to chop down grass from two to six centimetres, and the waste can be held in its 30 litre collection compartment.
Most importantly it has a quick stop blade brake, as well as a two-handed start switch so it is easy to power up and turn off quickly.
What the reviews say
Shoppers can’t get enough of this lawnmower, which has racked up more than 1,000 reviews on Argos.
Here’s what the reviews say:
“It is light, easy to handle and cuts well. Although taking the wheels off to adjust the height sounds a faff, it is simple and quick. That bright yellow cable warns you not to mow over it too. I had the lawn done in 15 minutes.”
“This mower was easy to put together and it cuts really well. You can adjust the height by moving the wheels to a higher or lower position, great value.”
“Excellent lawnmower, good value for money. It works fabulous. Good quality with design.”
“Superb little mower.”
