In the world of mathematics the notion of “beauty” is often used to describe the simplicity and elegance of some mathematical truth, especially if one has managed to solve a difficult problem in the quickest and most succinct way possible. Were we to apply this same standard of beauty to the hand-propelled rotary lawnmowers in Bosch’s Rotak range, we would likely discover that these are the most beautiful lawnmowers around. Take the Rotak 37 Ergoflex as an example; quiet, clean and dependable, the Rotak 37 Ergoflex makes routine lawn maintenance in smaller urban gardens completely stress-free and does so in a manner so simple that it would make even the most elegant equation look ugly and unwieldy by comparison.
Equipped with a high-torque 1400W Powerdrive electric motor, the Rotak 37 Ergoflex features a 37cm (14.5”) working width and a capacious 40 litre grass collector for efficient cutting on smaller lawns. Even better is that it does this without the noise, fumes or hassle involved in running a petrol machine, which nine times out of ten will be entirely unnecessary in small domestic gardens anyway! As such the Bosch Rotak 37 Ergoflex is perfect for use in urban and residential settings where exhaust emissions and noise levels are likely to cause a disturbance, while the convenience of being able to plug in and set straight to work without having to worry about refuelling shouldn’t be underestimated.
To help ensure outstanding cutting results the Rotak 37 Ergoflex is also fitted with a hardened steel rotary mower blade which has been designed to increase the airflow inside the cutting chamber. This boosts collection performance and significantly reduces the amount of cut grass left on the lawn surface, with up to 99% of clippings gathered for quick disposal once you are done. Built-in grass combs, meanwhile, work to prevent scalping and enable effective mowing alongside walls and borders, while a six-position variable cutting height system (with settings ranging from 20mm to 70mm) is controlled via a single easy-access lever for great results in a variety of grass conditions.
And to ensure that mowing remains stress-free the Rotak 37 Ergoflex is remarkably easy to use, even for the least experienced gardeners. A big part of this is Bosch’s AGR-certified “Ergoflex System”, which incorporates a handlebar designed to improve working posture, prevent muscle strain and provide unimpeded access to all controls. When combined with the Rotak 37 Ergoflex’s smooth-running, rubber-coated wheels and lightweight build (weighing in at only 12kg) this nippy little mower becomes superbly easy to manoeuvre, even around tricky lawn borders. Bosch’s new QuickClick handle system, meanwhile, allows for quick, hassle-free assembly straight out of the box without any need for additional tools.
But does this impressive user-friendliness (along with its stylish design) make the Rotak 37 Ergoflex beautiful in the same way as, say, the Mona Lisa or Caravaggio’s Basket of Fruit, or even beautiful like a well expressed mathematical truth? Probably not, yet nobody can deny that Bosch’s powerful electric lawnmowers are a darned sight more useful to have around when your lawn needs a tidy!
