Lloyds WM20H

This is a good-value, no-frills, commercial rotary mower that will even cut through things you might not expect it to.

The combination of deep deck and wide side-discharge ensures that this model slices its way through thick, long grass. Wet leaves and pine needles are no problem and the result is a clean, well-manicured-looking lawn.
“I thought it’d be a rough cut but it has left a good finish. It is simple to use, light and manoeuvrable,” says the tester.
Basic in appearance, this is a rugged and soundly built machine. The wheels are steel with semi-pneumatic rubber tyres. The deck is six-millimetre alloy aluminium to improve the power-to-weight ratio. The unit weighs around 33kg, so it is light enough to lift on and off a trailer, and there’s plenty of power from a four-stroke, five-horsepower Honda engine.
We especially like the WM20H for its simplicity. You can see instantly what it is supposed to do and all the controls are within easy reach. Being lightweight and having adjustable handlebars, it is also comfortable to use.
All components are easy to access for maintenance. There is an optional grass catcher available.
