Ditch the petrol and cables


….. and go rechargeable!

What I’m talking about, are lawnmowers.

We have had great success with battery powered lawnmowers in the past, but the last we did was a very serious piece of kit that was capable of cutting a big ol’ lawn. Many people asked us to get a smaller, lighter machine that would do a smaller lawn, and would cut nice and low so that people could achieve a neat bowling green out back.

Well, the boys at Sun Joe have brought us just that!

This Sunday’s Today’s Special Value offers a great wee rechargeable lawnmower with a 24V, 4Ah battery giving a run time of up to 40 minutes, or 1000 square metres (equivalent of up to three tennis courts).

The lawnmower also features rugged wheels, making it suitable to inclines or uneven gardens and handle collapses for easy storage. For the techie people out there, it has a 600w brushless motor – meaning that the engine will last longer than regular motors and with a 36cm cutting width and a 40 litre grass box, you will happy and quietly, be able to cut the grass in a jiffy. It cuts from 6cm right down to the bowling green 2cm with a metal blade, to achieve that perfect finish.

This is the first lawnmower like this that we have brought to the UK for under £200 and it stands proud out there; I was in the big DIY shed the other day getting timber for my daughters den, and they didn’t have any battery-operated lawnmowers at all!

To test it properly I needed some independent opinions as my lawn is a bit big for this little beauty. So, some good friends, Ian and Jackie, were roped in just before we sat down at theirs for a lovely barbie.

They have a beautiful garden and the lawn needs to be kept short for little Tommy their tortoise who they have had for over 20 years. He was rather inquisitive but don’t worry we made sure he was well out the way before Jackie set to with the Sun Joe.

Everyone commented on how quiet it was and how easy it was to manoeuvre. Ian thought it was great that it was so lightweight, as it would be easy to take in the car when cutting grass away from home (allotments or graveyards). The battery would have been more than strong enough to cut their lawn for a few months between charges but with the fast charger, it would never be a problem.

After but a few minutes of easy grass cutting (well, easy for us, as Jackie did all the work), we sat down for a great BBQ and admired the lovely surroundings.

Make more of your summer by ditching the petrol, extension cables, servicing costs and hassle and spend more time enjoying the relaxation.

    Wanted to know how easy it would be to replace the battery, how much would it cost and where to buy them from. How long should this battery last?
    Same again for the blade, where would you purchase it from and how easy is it to get?
    As this is not an English model, wanted to know how easy these things would be to get hold of?

    I’m so sorry Jaki, I never saw this until now. It’s all about academic as the offer is long gone but to answer the questions. The blade is metal and although the manufacturer is amaercan the blade is quite standard and other non OEM ones would fit. How long the battery lasts is dependant on how you use it and charge it. I would give it a about a five year lifespan but could be more. The batteries are pretty standard across the range to easy to get a replacement. And by the way it was a doddle to fit!
