Sometimes electric lawnmowers are maligned for being underpowered and only suited to light cutting work in the smallest gardens. There may have even been a hint of truth to this in the past, but Bosch’s Rotak 43 Ergoflex – the biggest and most powerful machine in Bosch’s electric lawnmower range – demonstrates that the days when electric mowers couldn’t handle sizable lawns are well and truly over. Perfect for routine mowing in medium sized home gardens, the Rotak 43 Ergoflex is a hand-propelled rotary lawnmower which is just as good at cutting grass as it is superbly user-friendly.
It’s the Rotak 43 Ergoflex’s hardworking 1800W Powerdrive motor which allows it to tackle jobs which other electric lawnmowers can’t, delivering consistently high levels of torque for superior cutting performance. Combined with a generous 43cm (17”) cutting width and a high-capacity 50 litre grass collector, this added power equates to superb grass cutting efficiency. And since an electric lawnmower can do this without all of the noise, fumes and expense of running a petrol machine, the Rotak 43 Ergoflex is perfect for tending to lawns in larger urban gardens or other residential areas where excessively noisy equipment can cause an unwelcome disturbance.
The nippy little motor mentioned above drives the Rotak 43 Ergoflex’s hardened steel rotary cutterblade, which has been cleverly designed to deliver a cleaner cut while also boosting airflow through the cutting chamber. As a result around 99% of grass clippings will be captured by the grass collector, ensuring a brilliantly tidy surface finish. This increased airflow is also utilised for the Rotak 43 Ergoflex’s “LeafCollect” functionality, which enables loose leaves and other light debris littering your lawn surface to be collected and shredded. The inclusion of six-position centralised height of cut adjustment (offering settings from 20mm to 70mm), moreover, makes the Rotak 43 Ergoflex capable of producing great results in a range of conditions, while grass combs ensure an improved cut when mowing alongside walls and lawn borders.
The above features combine for a guaranteed quality finish, which is certainly helped by the ease of operation this mower also offers. The Rotak 43 Ergoflex’s lightweight build (weighing in at only 13.1kg), for instance, ensures that even heavier workloads don’t become tiring, with smooth-running, rubber-coated wheels included for added manoeuvrability when negotiating tricky lawn borders. In addition to this the AGR-certified “Ergoflex System” handlebar has been designed for comfort, convenience and an improved working posture which reduces muscle strain while you work. Even the most basic things about this machine – like being able to just plug in and work without interruption rather than keeping a constant eye on fuel levels – help to make using the Rotak 43 Ergoflex a completely stress-free experience.
And once you are done and your lawn is looking fantastic the Rotak 43 Ergoflex’s foldaway handlebar and integrated carry handle mean that transportation and storage are just as straightforward as cutting the lawn, thereby ensuring that Bosch’s mower remains user-friendly even when you’re not using it! So for unbeatable grass cutting performance from a lawnmower which makes routine mowing simple, gardeners with small to medium sized lawns need look no further than Bosch’s superb Rotak 43 Ergoflex.
