But what about if you’re shopping on a budget? In this blog post, Lawnmowers Direct lists some of the best petrol lawn mowers on the market for under £250. Read on for the best budget petrol lawn mowers you can buy.

Buying a petrol lawn mower

Petrol lawn mowers are among the most popular choices for homeowners and professionals in the gardening trade. Depending on the petrol mower model you buy, you have the ability to mow any garden size, making them a truly universal mower.

However, one thing to note is that petrol mowers are usually much heavier than their electric and battery counterparts due to the type of engine. So, before making your purchase, we strongly recommend visiting a local dealer that stocks the mower so you can feel the weight and determine if this would be manageable for you.
