There are many types of lawn mowers on the market and choosing between electric, petrol, battery or push can be challenging, especially if you’re not a mowing geek.
A petrol lawn mower produces the most power and is best for lawns over 200 metres square or where mowing the lawn may be difficult due to slopes or uneven surfaces.
Petrol mowers are extremely powerful – a strong engine means a stronger cut, so petrol mowers often excel at cutting tougher grass types, such as long or rough sections.
They will also have professional features, such as mulching plugs and more, which are handy for a nice aesthetic and environmental purposes
Therefore, if you’ve got a larger garden or you just want an extremely high-powered mower, a petrol model will be the best option – especially if they’re under £200!
The Atco Quattro 15 is powered by a 125cc Briggs & Stratton 4-stroke engine. This 15 inch/39cm cutting width mower is ideal for small to medium sized lawns.

You can easily adjust the height of cut, as each wheel is fittest with a height adjuster, with the choice of 5 pre-set cutting positions, ranging from 25cm to 70 cm. You can also choose between the option of using a collector or not, due to the ergonomic design.
