  1. Haven’t seen a compilation review before – great idea, much better in my view and easier to follow. I couldn’t have come across your post at a more opportune time for my Aunt who has been complaining about her mowers breaking down all the time (motor issues) and i promised i would help her check online for a good one. Based on this we be going ahead with the 1200W rotary corded model and the price at Argos is well affordable – will be making some savings here so thanks for your help with that

    • You are more than welcome and best of luck to you and your Aunt with your new McGregor 1200W Corded Rotary lawn mower. Thanks also for stopping by and taking the time to leave your feedback – it is greatly appreciated.

  2. Can someone please tell me where I can buy a Mcgregor 1450w, 30cm Hover Mower please, I have tried Argos and Amazon with no joy
