£35 from Argos. Installation was simple but I had a little problem with the screws that connect the body with the handles. I eventually gave up and didn't use the screws afterall since the handle bars can pretty much be fixated on the body without the screws after some pushing, and it still feels sturdy without the screws. A failed design but it's not a big problem, it works just the same. Besides, the installation menu can be slightly misleading on the handle installation part, so you have to use your common sense to decide which direction the handle should to be put. The lawnmower is light and the wheels are flexible so it doesn't take too much ... Read the complete review

When I started researching into lawnmowers I was looking at a few different factors; the height of grass it would cut, ease of use, electric or petrol and price. These are all important factors when looking for your first or next mower. Take into consideration the size of your lawn, the height of your grass (is it a massive garden of metre high weeds?), the space you have to store the mower and how much you have to spend on it. I finally decided on the Challenge Rotary Mower because it does everything I need it to do, it is electric which is what I prefer and it was a very good price at £35 from Argos. I had it delivered, unpacked it from its box and had a ... Read the complete review

I recently replaced my Flymo Hover mower with this Challenge 1000 Watt Electric Rotary Mower from Argos because I wanted a small lawn mower which wouldn't cost the earth, but had a grass collection box on the back. I only have a small area to mow but I was finding raking up all the grass hard work. My ideal price range was around £50 - £60 so I was pretty pleased to bag this on offer from Argos for only £35. Getting this out of the box, I initially felt a bit concerned that I'd spent too little and that this was one of those "reduced for a reason" kind of purchases. I'd read good reviews on the internet before buying, but my first impressions in ... Read the complete review

Me and my partner recently moved into our new home, and the man that lived there before us had left us some items, including this lawn mower. Now I think It is a nifty little machine and does the job that we need, however my partner is against it and wants to replace it as soon as possible. I don't want to do this as I am a bit of a scrooge and if something is working why replace it, it makes no sense. So the colour of this lawn mower is bright green, with a black handle, black grass box and an orange cable. One problem that I do have with this machine however is that the cable is so short, we have to use a 20m extension lead with it in order to be able to cut ... Read the complete review
