2. Fiskars StaySharp Max €295,-

This is the sports car of lawn mowers. Thanks to the 46 centimeter cutting width, the Momentum is also suitable for gardens up to 250 m². The non-contact cutting mechanism ensures a very light, quiet but effective cutting movement. The grass discharge is forward, causing the cut grass to pass through the blades several times. This reduces the volume of the waste and can be used as fertilizer for very regular mowing. The handle is ergonomically designed for long mowing. The cutting height is also very easy to adjust, between 2.5 and 10 centimeters.

3. Wolf Garten A 460 A SP HW €647,-

With this lawn mower you are fully equipped. This 2800 watt mower has a 140 cc Briggs & Stratton engine and 0.8 liter fuel reservoir. The steel housing hides the mowing blade, which you can use to cut 46-centimeter wide strips. You do this without much effort, because the lawn mower is self-propelled and therefore drives slowly forward on its own. You collect the mowed grass in the 60-liter collection bin or shred the grass into natural fertilization. You also mow outside the wheels and therefore take the lawn edges with you.


4. McCulloch ROB R600 €750
