Once upon a time gardeners with expansive lawns had no choice but to use an expensive petrol lawnmower, with electric machines unable to roam further than the length of their power cables. These petrol lawnmowers were often more hassle than they were worth, with their high maintenance demands and increased running costs. Many a gardener was thus reduced to tears of frustration, covered in oily stains and slumped to their knees with exhaustion after heaving their heavy petrol lawnmower around the garden. Today, however, this needn’t be the case, because Bosch’s Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex is a hand-propelled cordless electric lawnmower designed specifically for the maintenance of larger lawns.
“But how can this be?” you cry, “Even the best batteries run low when faced with my sprawling estate!” But the nice people at Bosch have thought of this, so instead of one hi-tech, quick-charging 36V/4.0Ah lithium-ion battery, the Rotak 43 LI-2 is powered by TWO hi-tech, quick-charging 36V/4.0Ah lithium-ion batteries. Along with the inclusion of an “Efficient Energy Management” system to increase run time by up to 15%, this ensures that the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex won’t fail you when the going gets tough. These compact batteries are also impressively light, which helps to keep the mower’s overall weight down and combines with Bosch’s AGR-certified “Ergoflex System” to ensure comfort and reduced muscle strain over prolonged periods of operation.
The true brilliance of lithium-ion battery technology, however, is that it allows the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex to deliver top quality grass cutting performance without the noise, fumes and additional expenses associated with running a petrol lawnmower. Thus with this machine you will be able to mow for longer in comfort without fear of choking on exhaust emissions, while you’ll also avoid angering any noise-sensitive neighbours when mowing on a Sunday morning! As such the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex is ideal for the maintenance of larger lawns in built up residential and urban settings, where noisier petrol equipment is simply impractical.
Grass cutting is handled via the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex’s hardened steel rotary cutterblade, with six-position centralised cutting height adjustment (offering working heights from 20mm to 70mm via a single easy-access lever) included for added precision in a range of grass conditions. Boasting a generous cutting width of 43cm (17”) and a 50 litre grass box for exceptional efficiency, the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex also features built-in grass combs to prevent scalping when mowing alongside walls, flowerbeds and lawn borders. In addition to this the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex even offers “LeafCollect” functionality, which utilises the suction effect produced by the cutting system to gather loose leaves and other debris from the surface of your lawn.
As such you can rest assured of a fantastically tidy finish all year round, but the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex is at least as notable for its outstanding user-friendliness as it is for the high quality results it can deliver. The ergonomically designed handlebar, for instance, has been made to ensure improved posture as well as providing quick access to all controls. The inclusion of smooth-running, rubber-coated wheels, meanwhile, makes the Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex pleasingly easy to handle when negotiating tricky areas of lawn or mowing around obstacles. And once you are done an integrated carry handle makes it easy to get your mower back to the shed, with the handlebar folding neatly away to save storage space. As such, for all of the impressive cutting performance of a powerful petrol lawnmower without any of the stress, there really are few machines like Bosch’s superb Rotak 43 LI-2 Ergoflex.
