AEG used to be a quality product

Absolute peace of crap. Steer clear of this rubbish. If anybody is after parts there will be a huge pile at the tip Show details

Nearly great

Overall a good lawnmower, does go through the batteries quickly in thick grass, but bought another pair
Biggest issue is the grass catcher which is next to useless. Any hints out there? Show details

Hardy performance in tough long grass

Seems to drive through all types of lawn, and even scrub. I get great battery life from the 6aH x2 . Just need a wall bracket to hang it up Show details

disappointed

I wrote a positive review about this mower a couple of months ago untermeyer using it a couple of times, at the time i had already commented on the resistance to my buffalo lawn on my backyard, as per before santa anna a. reese to cut, but when i got on the buffalo the mower dug in and would not move, i jarred my shoulder trying to push it.
Took out my masport and cut the rest no problems.
I n summary i agree 100% with what the other negative reviewers are commenting on, in reality i could have bought a cheap ozito to cut my santa anna.
Aeg really need to look at this design as it doesn’t work. Show details

Absolutely waste of money

Impossible to mow slightly taller grass. If you want a gym workout please go ahead and buy this 18v mower. I can guarantee you will be burning more calories than doing a 10km run.

The deck vs blade combination is totally wrong. It digs in to the grass making it impossible to push forward, only way to to pull the mower backwards.

I have contacted AEG to provide some diy fix and was told that they are unable to provide any solution. Pretty much 'tough luck'.

I have tried to lower the blade and cut some parts of the deck to help with this situation, it's slightly better but still it is a workout mowing my lawn.

What an absolute joke!!!!

Free AEG 18v mower, pick up only. Show details

Its decent

Easy as to set up and use, and its nice not running out of fuel. BUT..... There is no easy way to push this mower. Even with the deck up as far as it can go and not mowing, it's rather difficult to push and move. It's also not any lighter nor less noisier than a regular mower. It can also be extra difficult when the grass is long or thick, and I have to go over a few times to get an even cut.
Its really easy to recharge the batteries but if you've got a larger than usual yard, or like me and have multiple yards to do, the battery life is rather short, extra batteries are expensive and a full recharge takes quite a few hours. Don't think I would recommend as it's mostly Just OK Show details

Review of my previous post

The only thing that I have AGAINST this mower is that it is so hard to push - EVEN DOWNHILL. If your lawn is even a little cushioned it's impossible to push. - even through where you've mown. Show details

Atrocious, useless, bad design

Will not cut grass med/low or push through well maintained buffalo(weekly mowing). Comes to sudden stop as front of deck is poorly designed. Blades are too narrow compared to deck(leaves massive gaps against walls etc) useless Show details

Very bad design

Blade is set 22mm inside outer edge of skirt so tons of effort trying to push through grass. solved the problem by taking off the 2 sided blade, heated with a blow torch and bent down both blade ends so 2 mm inside edge of skirt.
2mm is the average blade height inside skirt on most petrol mowers [measured my existing 18inch rover mower at 2mm]. So who was the idiot at AEG that decided 22mm was better?. Better for what, pissing off dissatisfied customers? The user manual, a collection of pathetic child like drawings giving little or no instruction in fitting mulch and side shute. Sub standard product that should be repoved from the market place until AEG correct all faults. Will never buy another AEG product again. Show details

Disappointing 18" Fusion Lawn Mower ALM18BS6

Less than 9 months old and has stopped working, travelled 1200km's to return for repairs(still waiting 2wks later). Battery life is not good as cant mow entire average size lawn without placing batteries back on charge.

Don't bother

In short, garbage. I picked one of these up some time ago; this is not a fly-by-night review. The battery life is appalling. When you try to charge the battery, it flashes a red light at you, apparently it’s too hot. You go back inside, wait an hour or two, and it’s still flashing a stupid red light at you not even starting recharging. If you unplug and reinsert the battery it MAY start recharting. I’ve literally gone in every half hour. four or five times. repeating this process. Most times, even after this it’s only partially charged and flashing the red light at me again. I reiterate – GARBAGE! AEG should hang their heads in shame. Show details

I have one of these mower and it's been 2 years old h as been a good mower but I can't get it going batteries are fully charged but still can't get it going.
Took it back to Bunnings and they can't do anything because I can't find my receipt and I can't remember the exact date I brought it. At the moment I am stuck with a broken down lawnmower. Not happy with the situation. Is there anything I can do to get it fixed .

Try after-market products. There should be some available on sites like eBay or similar.

Do the generic batteries work with the mower? The model numbers don't match up on ebay?
