The Mountfield Electress 34 Li Cordless lawn mower is ideal if you want a no-nonsense, well-built cordless lawn mower that will trim your urban garden lawn quickly and efficiently. It's perfect for your average-sized suburban garden and good for a little bit more if you have a larger outdoor space. 

Mountfield suggests it's an ideal choice for gardens up to 250m2, so it was more than capable of tackling my own 30m2 lawn for the first cut of spring and beyond.
