With the weather having made such a remarkable turnaround within a mere matter of days I couldn’t have needed a lawnmower more. Before this week, my garden looked like a jungle and my heavily pregnant wife and young daughter were not impressed at the thought of having an indoor weekend during our 27 degree heatwave, so it was all hands on deck – or lawnmowers on grass, as it were.

And so I did as any busy man in need of something fast would – I hit the internet for a high quality, reasonably priced and quickly delivered lawnmower, and that’s where my Gtech experience began. I also ideally wanted a lawnmower that was cordless as I found my corded lawnmower a hassle and a little unsafe.

My Gtech Cordless Lawnmower arrived the very next day in a neat little package – a grown up toy just waiting to be played with (a thought my daughter shared also, as you’ll soon see!).

Assembling the lawn mower

I was really impressed by how easy the lawnmower was to assemble; there was no need to screw parts together or play around with fiddly mechanisms – the lawnmower came in three pieces that simply clicked together and the manual was as easy to follow as the lawnmower was to assemble.

After 5 minutes of assembly (and a further 5 minutes looking for my daughter who – naturally – was hiding in the box) I was almost ready to take my new lawnmower outside and set off to tackle London’s answer to the Amazon jungle. Here it is in all its glory…

I think my 19 month old daughter was as taken with this colourful and funky device as I was – here she is refusing to let me take it outside (it is battery-less at this point and is therefore safe!) and instead converting my new lawnmower into a dolls pram!

Once I’d wrangled the mower off of my daughter it was time to get serious and see what the Gtech Falcon Cordless Lawn mower could do.

Getting ready to mow

I clicked on the back grass catcher and set the lawn height – ready for business. I really liked how easy and slick these features were.

I was amazed at how light and compact the battery was. It arrived half charged and took 2 hours to charge fully, and you’re guaranteed a cordless operating time of 40 minutes – plenty of time to tackle even the unruliest of gardens!

With not a daughter in sight I was ready to dart for the door and get going with my mowing!

Getting started

Once in my garden, I clicked in the battery (really easily to do) and extended the lawn mower handle fully, which you need to do in order for it to start. You then press the green button and safely handle the bar to operate.

Do make sure that you only insert the battery once you’re outside and the coast is clear (no daughters, dolls or animals nearby!).

The lawn mower was super lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, and the fact that it’s cordless doesn’t just make it easier to use, it makes it safer too.

I was amazed at how much grass it holds! I used to have to empty my old lawn mower twice to mow my garden but I only had to empty the Gtech Falcon once at the end – plus its easy to empty as all you need to do is lower the bar which releases the grass catcher.

The Verdict

The Gtech Falcon is a seriously nice lawnmower that was easy to assemble, easy to use and made my grass look great.

The key benefits worth noting from my point of view are:

  • Lightweight
  • Cordless (so a lot safer)
  • Holds more grass and handle down means fast grass emptying
  • Being cordless allowed me to get the job done a lot quicker – I mowed the lawn in about 8 mins vs 15 mins previously with a corded mower
  • I get at least 4 uses in on one charge
  • Safe – not worried about the little one being able to start it

If I were to score the Gtech Falcon Lawnmower, I’d definitely give it a 10/10 and would highly recommend to friends, family and colleagues.

Our Competition Winner

We were thrilled to be able to send our recent competition winner, Jason Credidio, a brand new Gtech Falcon Lawnmower to say congrats. Jason told us that the most attractive feature of this Gtech Falcon was that it was cordless and therefore quicker and safer to use.

Here’s Jason looking pretty chuffed with his prize…

    would have to be the safety aspect and children not able to start it as would be so much safer and no accidents with children a amazing bonus

    Main benefits for me should be weight, so I could use easily, and cut height, and cordless has great safety benefits, great brand too

    For me the key benefit would be getting the job done more quickly. I have so little energy at the moment (going through chemo) that every second counts!

    Being cordless is the main benefit for me. It gives you the freedom not worrying about the cord. plus less time mowing the lawn means more time enjoying my garden. 🙂

    Lightweight. My garden is two tiered and on a hill so weight is a consideration when I’m looking at lawn mowers.

    I would love to say the cordless aspect is more important but I will have to say the Safety Aspect. Safety is the Number One Priority.

      And clever too! An adult just uses anything as it was designed for, but a child can always find at least 3 other things to use it for.

    I have to say being cordless would be a weight off my mind but the safety aspect would be more important if I had kids here

    Where are the ‘before’ photos? Not impressed with your review – are you a politician by any chance?

      JB, we’re sorry! We have no suitable explanation other than ‘we thought we’d taken a before shot’ and soon realised during the write-up that in fact, we hadn’t. Perhaps it was the excitement of getting started; perhaps it was our unreliable iphones; perhaps it was just us! Either way we’ll ask Simon to take a couple of before and after shots next time he mows his lawn and will upload them here for all to see. P.S. I plead not guilty to being a politician.

        I detest mine and wish I had never bought it. It’s OK if the grass is lovely and dry and not much more than a cm. long!! My lawns take about 15 mins to mow so in theory should be able to do them twice on one full charge. I find I have to mow about every 4 days, definitely can’t leave it a week as I don’t get full mow on a charge.
