Robert Bosch GmbH was founded in Stuttgart, 1886, with the view to creating a workshop for ‘precision mechanics and electrical engineering’. Today the very same company is doing just that, manufacturing products ranging from power tools to washing machines and lawn mowers. All products carrying the Bosch name are made to a high standard, offering both longevity of service and value for money. The Bosch range of gardening products has steadily grown over recent years and now includes some leading products in their field. The Rotak stable of electric rear-roller rotary Bosch lawn mowers has proved particularly popular.
The classic and probably most popular machine from this range is the Bosch Rotak 40 Electric Rotary Mower. The ideal machine for the average suburban garden, the Bosch Rotak 40 offers excellent cutting power from the 1700 watt Bosch Powerdrive motor that produces exceptional torque due to clever reduction gearing.
Slightly larger is the Bosch Rotak 43 Electric Rotary Mower with a 43cm cutting width; fitted with the same high torque motor as the Rotak 40, it will easily cope with your lawn on returning from your summer holidays! Both machines have 50-litre collection boxes as standard and the ability to mow right up to the edges of fences and flowerbeds thanks to the in-set front wheels and unique grass combs attached to the side of the mowing deck.
The Bosch Rotak 36 Electric Rotary Mower and Bosch Rotak 34 Electric Rotary Mower are both smaller and lighter than the above-mentioned models. 40 percent lighter than similarly designed machines with a weight of only 10.5kg and conveniently placed carry handles, these are ideal lawnmowers for homeowners with small, terraced lawns or gardens with lots of obstacles in situ. A variety of grass conditions can be maintained and finishes achieved with the centrally controlled height of cut adjustment, providing 10 increments covering heights between 20mm – 70mm; the added benefit of the rear-roller, standard on all full size Rotak lawn mowers, leaves a neatly defined stripe on your lawn.
We mustn’t end the review of the Bosch electric rotary mowers without mentioning the Bosch Rotak 320 Electric Rotary Mower, which, uniquely in the Bosch Rotak range is a 4-wheel rotary lawn mower. Equipped with a 1000 watt motor and 32cm blade it is ideal for the smallest of lawn areas where routine maintenance takes priority over style.
Recently the engineers at Bosch headquarters have taken the cordless, battery-powered lawnmower to new heights of design and performance. The cordless rear roller rotary lawn mower range from Bosch now comprises three models: the Bosch Rotak 34 LI Cordless Lawn Mower, the Bosch Rotak 37 LI Cordless Lawn Mower and the Bosch Rotak 43 LI Cordless Lawn Mower.
All machines in the Rotak cordless lawn mower range produce the same mowing performance as the equivalent corded machine, yet without the annoying and often dangerous trailing electrical cable. Lithium-Ion battery technology is the outstanding feature of these lawn mowers; the Rotak 43 LI is supplied with two 36-volt batteries, capable of cutting 150m³ to 300m³ per battery with no self-discharge or memory effect.
Another great advantage of the Li-Ion batteries are the recharge times: fully charged from empty in only one hour and up to 80 percent in only 30 minutes! Adding to these already impressive features is the ‘Efficient Energy Management’ system that can increase the running time by 10 to 20 percent, depending on the lawn and mowing conditions. Last, and probably most important of all, the Bosch Rotak Lithium-Ion lawn mowers use very small amounts of energy in comparison to petrol lawnmowers, causing ten times less CO2 emissions.
If you’re on the lookout for a new lawn mower this season and feel like making an environmentally sound investment you need look no further than the range of Rotak lawn mowers from Bosch. They are designed and engineered to service the modern gardener with performance, energy efficiency and durability guaranteed.
