We review more lawn mowers than anyone else
Which? tests around 3,300 products every year, from washing-up liquid to cars. When testing lawn mowers, we measure how well each one cuts grass – from short, ornamental lawns to long meadow grass. We also time how long it takes to cut the grass, how well the mower collects the grass clippings, how neat it leaves the lawn edges and how smart the finished lawn is. Our experts also rate each lawn mower on how easy is it to use.
