Rated 4 out of 5 by David Gascoyne Very pleased
I bought the Bosch Rotak from Homebase about 3 months ago and so I've been using it for a while. It cuts beautifully, it is not heavy, it has lots of height settings, so can deal with longer grass if necessary and it carries a large amount of grass in the collection box, so it doesn't need emptying too often. In addition, even I found it easy to put together and I'm hopeless at DIY!
My one criticism would be the length of the cable. My garden is only of an average size and yet I have to use an extension cable.

The mower was easy to assemble and of solid construction. Being rather tall I found the mower easy to use and was very impressed with the finished result for a rotary mower. The manoeuvrability was good and it cut to the edge of the machine. The grass collection arrangement was also very efficient.
A very good purchase.

This is my second Bosch mower.
It's superb. easy height adjustable and a joy to use.
And the price was good too.
Only got this one because I gave my other to a family member to use.
They are sturdy and built to last.....

I'm well pleased with this purchase. It does the most important job well - it cuts the grass evenly , leaving a nice finish. It copes with longer grass and it is easy to manoeuvre.
One small drawback - the slightly constricted opening on the grass box means that it sometimes needs a good shaking to empty it.
Everyone comments on this - the power cable is far too short, especially for a machine designed for larger lawns. .

I had an earlier model which gave up the ghost after 7 years and this was a newer model but same cutting width. The lawnmower was very easy to assemble, my 9 year old daughter did most of it. It is easier to manoeuvre and the ergonomic handles definitely improve this. The new mower doesn't seem to cut as low as my older ones, the specs seem to be the same so not sure why it seems like this. The cable is about half the length of the old version, I now have to use an extension lead to to mow parts of my lawn.

I have had a Bosch Rotak 40 for the last 10 years . My old mower is still going strong and has never let me down but has now started to look its age. As I have been so pleased with it I decided to pass it on to a friend and upgrade myself to a brand new one.
I have found the new ergonomic handles to be very good and the height adjustment is much easier than it was before. Looking forward to another 10 years worth of good use.
