Pros: powerful motor and cutting., grass box collection
Cons: loose fitting handle
"Really good, powerful cutting mower, and a great value price. Only slightly let down by strange way the handle fits into the body with no clips or bolts, and infuriatingly keeps lifting out."

Pros: cheap to buy, easy to adjust cut length
Cons: does not cope with longer grass, small grass collector
"Does the job but could do better
Cuts grass ok when no more than 2-3 inches but struggles and stalls on longer patches.
Though it is easy to adjust the cut height so it can be done in two passes.
Also on mine it overheats and cuts out when you have it on the lowest cut, though this is probably a fault on my particular mower.
The grass collector is quite small so frequent emptying is nessesary.

"I felt I had to correct the review that indicated the grass box was faulty. I had the same problem but 5 minutes checking the assembly clearly illustrated that I'd done it wrong. The metal stanchions that support the box against the body of the machine were obviously the wrong way round. Switch the position and the grass box is sorted. The machine itself is a beast. Brilliant buy."

Pros: good economic machine
"Had mower assembled within 20 minutes of taking it out of packaging. Grass catcher a bit light and tricky to put together and cable clips not very good. I used black tape instead. Apart from that I am satisfied with the product and look forward to many hours happy mowing."

Pros: good value mower that works well
Cons: the grass box was a bit fiddly to put together
"I bought this to replace an ageing hover mower. It is almost as easy to use as my old mower and has the distinct advantage of having wheels when moving between lawn and garage! It seems well made, has a good cutting width, and does a good quick job of cutting the grass. The height adjuster is very easy to use and mine is spring loaded upwards so it can't accidentally drop to its lowest setting as one reviewer suggested happened with his."

Cons: awful grass box
"I wouldn't recommend this product because I purposely bought a mower with a grass box but find that the one on this mower is nearly completely useless. It is flimsy and starts to fall away from the mower when there is the merest amount of grass in it. So one either empties it repeatedly, every couple of minutes of use, or put up with it falling off meaning that I then have to rake the lawn anyway! I wish I had paid a bit more and bought a better quality product...will do so next time."

Pros: good price / performance
Cons: design fault
"The usual excellent Wickes price / performance but this lawnmower appears to have an irritating design fault.
The height adjustment lever spring is nowhere near strong enough to keep it in place – traverse uneven ground, move the mower to the side or reverse and it jumps out of place, leaving you with the worst of haircuts!
Can be readily fixed using a bungee but that shouldn’t be necessary.
