The Bosch Rotak 34 R is a lawnmower designed for medium-sized lawns up to 300m¬≤ in size. Its 34cm cutting width and lightweight design make it easy to carry and manoeuvre around the home, ensuring that all areas of the lawn are reached. The lawnmower features a large-capacity 40-litre grass box, which reduces interruptions for emptying, allowing users to mow their lawns for longer without needing to stop and empty the box. The lawnmower is powered by a 1300W Powerdrive motor and features a rotary blade, which guarantees a perfect finish. The integrated rear roller creates a striped effect on the lawn for a professional-looking finish. For ease of use, the lawnmower features double folding handles and a stackable grass box, which make it easy to store at home.
The Bosch Rotak 34R Electric Lawnmower has received mixed reviews from its users. On the positive side, users have reported that it cuts well, even tackling long grass with ease. Its lightweight design also makes it easy to maneuver around the lawn.
However, some users have expressed disappointment with the construction quality of the lawnmower. In particular, the grass box is considered to be flimsy and difficult to detach and reattach. Additionally, users have found the instructions to be poor, making assembly a challenging task.
The construction quality is pretty poor compared to my previous Bosch mower . It¬ís apparently made in China but no doubt to approved Bosch specifications . The assembly is not entirely straightforward and could be greatly improved by better instructions. The grass box is particularly flimsy and difficult to detach and reattach . As already stated my previous Bosch was much more robust and of a better design . Why was it changed . All in all I wouldn¬ít buy it again . Bosch¬ís reputation¬ís is on the wane with this item.
I had a Flymo electric mower before and this is just about better in every way. Firstly, the mower feels well made. Secondly, the mower does not require multiple passes over the same area to ensure an even and complete mow. Thirdly, despite the moderate output - it seems quite powerful. Then, the Grass collector is large and can accommodate a fair amount before needing to be emptied. Lastly, it cuts consequentially better around the edges. The only thing that isn't as good is the length of the Power cord. At 10 metres it is JUST too short to reach the edge of my current lawn without the need for an extension cord. However, this is a small issue considering all the pros. Really good value for money
Poor instructions and a cow to assemble. The grass box seems flimsy. Not the quality i expect from Bosch. But cut the grass ok.
