petrol lawn mowers

Test results for 11 four-stroke petrol-powered catcher lawnmowers priced from $299 to $699. 

We tested the mowers for:

  • Grass-cutting performance
  • Ease of use

For an alternative to petrol mowers see our test of electric mowers.

Please note: this information was current as of October 2005 but is still a useful guide to today's market.


Findings:

  • Most of the models on test cut grass very well, but not all are easy to use.
  • Our test revealed two good models for under $400, but other models at this price point weren’t as satisfactory.
