This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if ratings suggest poor performance.

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of lawn mowers with more than 50 ratings. This jumps straight to established products. We can see how they've actually performed over time, according to owners.

Market Insight

2017

In this report on the best lawn mowers for sale in the UK in 2017, we saw a mixed market. Not only in the types of lawn mowers for sale, but the hit and miss reviews we saw.

Each of the four sites we use to collect review data sold different makes and styles to one another.

For instance John Lewis offer lots more petrol lawn mowers and robot lawn mowers compared to the other sites. Robotic lawn mowers are new, and very expensive in 2017, so they don’t have many reviews yet.

Qualcast mowers had a decent range, and lots of sales at Argos, but none at Tesco.

Even the best selling lawn mowers at Amazon had mixed reviews, many scoring with respectable scores of 4.3 – 4.5 – but nothing outstanding.

Our cross-site ratings comparison found the five lawn mowers listed here to be best overall – with many satisfied owners and very good review scores.

2015

When looking for the best lawn mower reviews of 2015, we found a very busy product sector, with only a few main manufacturers, yet a lot of different models and lawn mower types. In fact our Top 5 features an electric lawn mower, and cordless lawn mower and a petrol lawn mower. We left out hand mowers for this round up.

We found plenty of positive lawn mower reviews, and it took us some time to calculate our list of the very best lawn mowers.

As often happens when calculating our Top 5 report, we found lawn mowers that were rated really highly on one site, yet lower on another. The Flymo Easi Glide 300 for example – hundreds of great reviews at Tesco Direct, but slightly lower at Amazon and Argos. It’s still a great lawn mower and we only mention it to reiterate an advantage in taking a multi-site view when considering product reviews.
