Main Features in Detail:

At number 2 and certainly one of our favourites on this list is the Spear & Jackson 40cm wide Corded Rotary Lawn mower with 1700W of power which is also backed with so many positive feedback reviews from several previous buyers across the UK which certainly adds further confidence. This cord lawn mower from Spear & Jackson is one of the largest in this range but they do stock smaller versions of this lawn mower also which obviously come with lower price tags that may be of interest to you also.

The price range here is normally available for less than £150, it is backed with a long 3-year warranty which they stand over hassle free and you can also get to pay for this over a 12 month term if you need using an Argos credit plan instead of paying for it all up front. There is a great power level of 1700W, the mow width is also at 40cm and there are 7 different mow heights to choose from which range from 2.5cm up to 7cm. The grass box collection unit is also quite large and has a grass holding capacity of 50 litres which would be one of the largest available.

In addition, there is the rear roller included on the lawn mower to provide attractive looking stripes across your lawn and the cable is longer coming in at 12m in length. Mow heights can be adjusted using a central lever, the grass box has a grass full indicator so you know in advance when it needs to be emptied and it performs well around borders giving a nice tidy finish with very little grass trimming work needed afterwards.

Overall a great piece of equipment and is certainly one that we would recommend highly across the UK and it has a soft grip handle which helps to reduce hand fatigue that may set in.

Grass box 40L capacity
Rear roller for stripes included
Innovative Grass combs edging
Cable 10m long / Weight 10.5kg

Main Features in Detail:

The third corded lawn mower on our best corded lawn mower list is the smaller Bosch Rotak 34cm wide corded rotary Lawn mower with 1300W of power which is more suitable for people looking for a smaller and more compact lawn mower than the 2 previous options outlined above. The mow width for this lawn mower is narrower at 34cm so it is more suited for smaller urban type gardens front or back and it is supported with a cable 10m long which tends to be the norm but 2m shorter than the Spear and Jackson outlined above.

There is the option also of using a credit card if you wish instead of paying for all up front and it is backed with a 2-year guarantee warranty which can be extended to 3 years if you register your purchase within 28 days with One thing that you will really like is the fact that Bosch offer a 5-day turnaround repair service once you are registered so it you have any problems, they will collect, repair and return it in less than a week. For further protection, you can also get a 3-year replacement care package for less than £50 extra which is optional to further protect your investment.

Without a doubt, this is a quality piece of equipment be it the deck, blades, wheels, handles etc and it gives a great quality finish in the lawn and does a great job also at picking up all the grass clippings.

Power level of 1900W
Mow width 40cm
6 mow heights 2cm to 7cm
Grass box 42L capacity
Mulching option available
Includes Rear roller for stripes
Cable 10m long / Weight 15kg
Warranty is 2 years

Main Features in Detail:

Next on our list is the solid and sturdy McGregor 40cm wide 1900W powered Corded Rotary Lawnmower which we found to cut the lawn extremely well without any hassles whatsoever and it left very attractive stipes across the lawn with the rear rollers built in (that many other lawn mowers do not have). Price wise – this lawn mower is great value for what you get as it has a wider mow path of 40cm but you can also choose narrower lawn mowers from McGregor also is you needed to spend slightly less than this.

The mow width path here is 40cm, the grass container has a collection capacity of 42 litres and the cable that comes with it is 10m long so you may need to invest in a small extension cord if your own lawn is beyond this. In addition, there is a mulching feature included also where you can put the clippings back into the soil as nutrients which help keep a healthier lawn for longer. If you wish to pay for this over 6 months, you can use the Argos credit plan if you want instead and there is also an optional replacement care package available for further protection and tends to cost less than £30

This lawn mower provides a great deal of power at 1900W which can deal with tall, thick and damp grasses, the weight is 15kg which is lightweight in design and it is backed with a 2 year warranty that they stand over hassle free.

4, Cobra Self Propelled 46cm Cut Electric Lawnmower MX46SPE

Trying to get a self-propelled electric lawnmower is not as easy as we first thought but finally we have come across the Cobra Self Propelled 46cm Cut Electric Lawnmower code MX46SPE that we can recommend with confidence to UK consumers. This corded lawnmower is available from Mowers Online UK (Cheltenham Mowers Limited) and they are based in Gloucester – why not support your own if you live close by! The price is a good deal more expensive though than you average corded lawnmower so you can expect to pay over £250 from what we have seen at the time of our review

This corded electric self-propelled lawnmower has an 18 inch / 46cm cut width, 7 different mowing heights, a side discharge as well as the mulching plug. You also have the option of paying for it in 3 equal instalments using PayPal Pay in 3 and it works superb when it comes to slopes, uneven ground and of course a whole lot LESS hand pushing. In addition, the power cable is 15m long, the grass collection unit has a capacity of 60L and it comes backed with a  2 year warranty.

Price Guide: £250 to £300 in Gloucester

5, VonHaus 1200W Corded Lawn Mower

If you wish to buy direct from a recognised and established brand name, then you should check out the small VonHaus 1200W Corded Lawnmower which is available directly from VonHaus UK and it offers a much lower price than expected – typically you should be able to get your hands on it for between £80 and £120 so it is ideal for the smaller garden type and people seeking a low cost and effective solution to keep their grass under control. They offer a free UK mainland delivery in 3 to 5 working days and it works particularly well around edges and corners leaving a nice tidy finish.

It's a small lightweight but effective mower than comes with a 12m long cable, a grass collection unit of 30L and cutting width of 34cm. There are 5 mowing heights from 2.5cm to 6.5cm, a top grip carry handle and the handlebar is foldable for more convenient storage in smaller sheds. Its only approx. 10.5kg in weight and again if you need a small lightweight electric corded lawnmower, then you don’t need to look much further than this.

Best Corded Lawn Mowers Part 2

6, Bosch Advanced Rotak 45cm 1700W Electric Corded Lawnmower

Brief Summary:

Power level of 1700W
Pro-Silence motor / Foldable
Leaf collect blade system
Wider mow width 45cm
Larger mow heights 2cm to 8cm
Large Grass box capacity 50L
Innovative Grass combs edging
Cable is 10m long / Weight 17kg
Warranty is 2 to 3 years

Main Features in Detail:

Next on our list is another Bosch model and this time it’s the larger more advanced Bosch Advanced Rotak 45cm wide Electric Corded Lawn mower with provides you with 1700W of power which is 400W more powerful than the 34cm Bosch model outlined already. The one disadvantage here though is the price which tends to set you back around £250 so you will certainly need to dig deeper into your pockets for this one as many other corded electric lawn mowers are easily available for less than £150 and in some cases less than £100 – a much larger investment is needed on your end but it is definitely worth it if you have the additional money to spend.

Instead of paying for it all up front, you can choose the credit card plan if you wish to spread the cost over a longer period instead and this facility is currently supported by Argos UK.  Like the 34cm model, this larger 45cm wider lawn mower is also backed with the 2 year warranty and a third year is available if you register your purchase with them within 28 days of the transaction.

One thing that stands out here is the quality of the build, the blades are excellent and you get the Bosch Ergoslide system which helps to reduce any back strain you may come across as you mow by improving your posture. It has the Bosch leaf collect blade system also which is a great help in clearing away all the autumn leaves across your garden. This model also comes equipped with the Pro-Silence motor which has the ability to reduce the level of noise down to 89Db which is great if you need to mow later in the evenings or if you have neighbours living close-by. As you would expect, it has the single height lever button and it provides you with 7 mow height settings that range from 2cm up to 8cm high.

The last thing to point out is that the handles here can be adjusted or extended if you wish depending on your own height which again is great for providing more comfort and less strain on your arms and your lower back.

Price Guide: £230 to £300 @ Argos UK

7, Flymo Speedimo 36cm 1500W Electric Lawn mower

Brief Summary:

Power level is 1500W
Mow width of 36cm
Compact designed size
5 mow heights 2cm to 6cm
Grass box capacity 40L
Cable is 12m long / Foldable
Lightweight design 11.5kg
Clear vision window grass box
Warranty is 12 months

Main Features in Detail:

At number 7, we have the Flymo Speedimo 36cm wide electric corded Lawn mower with 1500W of power which is one of the smallest on this list and tends to offer great value as it tends to be available for around £100 which again is ideal for people seeking the best possible bargain or the lowest possible price. There is a 12-month warranty provided here which covers you for one season but can get the replacement care package if you wish for less than £40 extra to further protect your investment into the future which is available from Argos. Another thing worth pointing out is that you get back up support direct from Flymo in the UK on 0344 844 4558 who can deal with any problems if they arise which is one less thing to worry about.

The grass box has a capacity of 40 litres and has a clear vision window so you can easily see when it needs to be emptied, the handles are foldable which is ideal for people with only compact storage available and the 5 mow height settings allow the grass to be cut from 2cm up to 6cm. Another thing also is the fact that the grass can be compacted in the grass container so it allows more grass clippings to be filled in reducing the amount of times you need to empty it.

The power cable is longer by 2m than many others as they generally have cables of 10m only where the cable here is 12m long which will help reach further across your garden without the possible need of an extension cord which can be added expense. Overall - if you need to spend around £100 maximum, tend take a serious look at the Flymo Speedimo as it certainly mowed a lot better than we expected and the lighter weight of less than 12kg makes it an ideal solution for people seeking a simple yet effective lighter type corded lawn mower to meet their needs

  1. I found your reviews really good and helpful. However, what I would really like is a self-propelled corded electric lawn mower for a larger lawn. Have you any experience of these?

    • Sorry not a corded version. If you are looking for an electric self propelled lawnmower, then we would recommend the Greenworks Cordless self-propelled Lawnmower with the battery and charger included – check it out here. Best of luck…

  2. From this list, I must stick with Bosch to be honest. The Advanced Rotak 45cm 1700W Electric Corded Lawnmower is the most beautiful of the lot, and I’d be proud to strut around my yard with it in front of the neighbours and it is better as it has the wider mow path in my opinion backed with a strong brand and great warranty. After this, I would take a serious look at Spear and Jackson as the overall package and the price is certainly worthwhile. Thanks for compiling this list as I am a little clueless when it comes to picking lawnmowers!

    • You are very welcome and we are delighted that you found this corded lawn mower list useful in some way. Best of luck, Regards, Steve
