.......and you were not influenced by the fact you are invested in a particular brand or platform, what mower would be top of your shopping list?
My petrol mower has served me well for over 15years. It's been used, abused, tweaked and repaired.....but now it's almost beyond economic repair. Time to go cordless electric.
I'm a Dewalt 20V Max fanboy which gets me a whole heap of nothing mower-wise but does at least get me a whole open market of options.
Obviously, the pro-level Bosch products would be great but by the time you factor in batteries and a charger they are at sell-a-kidney levels. Al-ko have entered the market in Europe but I've yet to see their model in the metal.
So, if you were buying a buddy a new mower using his wallet, what would you be looking at?
