I'm in need of a petrol lawn mower, having just moved to a house with more lawn, and my electric one died too! I borrowed my dads one, which is self propelled, as in it has a motor that pushes it along. But it was so incredibly heavy, and I found it unwieldy and difficult to turn too. I need one that can cope with roughing grass and longer grass, plus one that collects the clippings. Can anyone recommend one? Is the one that cuts well, collects grass clippings, cops with all sorts of conditions, and isn't too heavy? ( husband muttering 'you want the moon on a stick...!😁😆)
Thanks ladies. I found it surprising that there's not more discussion on the internet in general about types and suitabilities of lawn mowers. I've searched around for personal recommendations or general info, but most of what's there is specific to brands or selling websites. I will have a look at recent Which? Reports. I usually mow the lawn, not my husband, so I need to know that the mower we buy is ok for me...it'd be an expensive mistake otherwise!
