I have had a lot of health issues lately so have got to change my Lawn Mower, to a reliable lighter one!
At present I have an old *Hayter* (petrol), that was always hard to start up; the handle has broken & I just cant find anyone that can replace it, (even 2nd hand?)
Can anyone suggest a reliable, not too heavy Lawn Mower please? My part time gardener has just left, so I'm worried about my lovely, smallish garden will get out of hand?



Provided you're not desperate to have stripes on the lawn, I'd suggest an electric hover mower such as a Flymo, but check various models, some are large and heavier than others. If it's a small lawn, choose a small one. If money's not too much of an issue, have a look at robotic mowers, they'll do it while you're sitting with a glass of wine and reading...

A battery mower, mine is a Bosch Rotak but there are others available. I changed from a petrol mower for the same reason.

Alternatively, get rid of the lawn and replace with gravel, slate, or similar. That's what we did when health issues became a problem.
