Rated 5 out of 5 by Kat1 As brilliant as we expected
This is a replacement for an older model Rotak 37 bought nine years ago. It is brilliant. Light enough for a female to operate as well and copes with a medium sized lawn really well. Folds down easily to store which is good.
The modifications made to this ergo model are noticeable - easier to turn and of course cuts so well. Edges cut better on this version. Only slight minor issue on our one is that the new shaped box sticks on one side when being removed but on the plus side, empties more easily than the older model box. The cord is now longer which is a benefit also.
Our overall opinion is that this is just right for our needs.

The mower has the flexibility to cut at different heights. Using a higher setting can prevent the sun scorching the grass.
It also has a wide 37cn cutting width and a large grass collection box. Handy to have a second pair of hands when putting together. Although I managed alone.
The only drawback is storing I would have recommended a more versatile collapsible handle.

I found this mower to be light to use. Cuts close to edges as specified and does a good job cutting the grass!
I feel that the cable is too short and the grass box flimsy.
The grass box handle came off the first time I used it, but hasn't happen since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff Garden never looked so good
This was a reluctant purchase to replace my trusty mower of 16 years!
My only wish is that I bought this particular mower years ago! It is easy to put together in 2 minutes and once I started it up I knew it 'meant business' !
It makes light work of my medium sized garden (11m * 10m) and with the very easy height adjustment you can get the cut that you require.
I love the fact that there are 4 buttons to start the mower up
What a great product at a very reasonable price.

Very pleased with the mower, it produce a very good finish to my lawn. This mower was purchased to replace a Bosch Rotak 34 which was 7 years old and has been used to cut a large lawn. I hope this one lasts as long, the quality appears to be as good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Recommended to me by a friend. I compared this with the equivalent Qualcast machine. In my view the latter has a better grass box (made partially of material so it collapses to a smaller size for storage), a better system for attaching the handles to the body of the machine and more robust feel to the height setting mechanism. However, the Bosch has a less powerful motor (lower electricity consumption) and is nearly 2kg lighter. So on balance considering my friend's recommendation i paid about £20 more and bought the Bosch. The mower has worked well on two cuts so far. As I suspected the quick release type of system for connecting the handles to the machine is rather fiddly and you need to take care not to undo too far so as to lose the nut. Also after purchase I found annoyingly when the handle is folded for storage the bulky part of the top handle lies right across the middle of the handle for carrying the machine making it virtually impossible to get a good grip to lift the mower. This means that the handle on top of the mower body is useless unless you want to lift the mower with the main handles set up in the mowing position. So you will probably want to push the mower close to the storage location before collapsing the handles.
The cable supplied with the mower is just about 10 metres long which is really only enough for a small lawn ( why would you want a 37 cm cut width machine for a small lawn?!) so you'll probably need to factor in the cost of an extension lead. For the price it seems oversll a good mower. Time will tell. But I recommend prospective purchasers have a good look at other equivalent machines eg the Qualcast.
