Push Mowers Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of push mower would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Not the best
This mower is hard to start ,I pull the cord aprox 10 times. then do the weed eating, come back to mower and pull usually 3 times. There is no primer on the carby. Also when I mow up against a concrete slab the wheels get slightly stuck and tear up the grass from spinning
Complete rubbish. Lasted the first day then stopped working by the third mow. I would rather have paid more and have a working tool that can be relied upon.
I would not recommend this to anyone. Does not work well on medium height grass and the hopper has limited holding capacity.

How stupid I was in buying this. I am ashamed of myself !
Product lasted 10 minutes. Brand new out of the box. Self propelling mechanism stopped working in 10 minutes.
The plastic insert for the mulch does not fit properly in the metallic body as it appears to be out of specs or was given the one for the wrong model. I assume this as the tools that came to fix the handles were the wrong size.
The whole product is built as a toy and its workmanship is a pile of crap.
I should have gone and spend money and get something that is built correctly. This is now going to become a legal battle via Department of Consumer Affairs, I can see this coming........and I am not going to back of.
First mow, great easy to use self driven, went to use my Baurmr AG 750 5XI the second time and a spring fell out now won't self drive and two hard to push. Not even 3 months old. E-bay got a great review I got a nightmare paid over $400 saved hard for this! And see its a common issue in this module so why can they not inform me were the spring goes. Disgusting.
Cuts too high
Bought this lawnmower 6 months ago, starts well and runs okay.
The height adjustment is very poor, you can’t cut your lawn very low.
Could work well on very heavy grass. Would not recommend to anyone who has short growth grass because you are not able to shave to low height.
Bad machine with terrible customer service
The worst mower you can buy. Used it twice, the 3rd time didnt start. Contacted the company they send me a new starter that was the wrong size for the model i have. I sent them over 5 messages telling them thats the starter was the wrong size and no one replied back.
Baumr-AG 750 SX
I bought the 750 SX, Self Propelled model. I've only had it for a little over a week so time will tell as to durability. Mower was well packaged and very easy to assemble. Only the handle had to be fitted. I filled with mower with oil and fuel and it started easily. I checked the oil after around 10 minutes and it was very dirty. Obviously from residue in the motor. I've changed it three times now and it is improving.
The mower seems to be quite well constructed. The catcher is a bit flimsy and I wonder how long it will last. They would have ...
Worst Mower in the market
This is the worst mower in the market. This is not easy to use. The mower works only for three months. When contacted the distributor (Edisons) to claim warranty, they were of no use. I recommend everyone not to purchase this worst mower as it is of no value for money.
Pretty damn good for $250 for 760sx
Got the lawn mower delivered this week, it looked pretty good. Fired it up for first mow today. I had grass n weeds set up to my knees. It did a fine job keeping up with the cut. Stalled a few times to be expected with so much grass. Self propelled is awesome, without it I be stuff mowing 200sqm grass up my knees.
Engine speed lever control is crap, either start, on or off .
Mower heavy as..... Can't they make mowers out of carbon geezzzz
This is the worst Mower on the Market
I purchased this on ebay from Edisons. The first time I used it the catcher lugs snapped with theweight of the grass, no worries I strengthened them with metal supports, next time the self propulsion stopped working, no adjustment will get it working so I guess it has burnt out. We use it as a push mower only now and are up to our 6th mow and the handles are dropping off as it vibrates its screws loose and sheds parts. Definitely not what we expected and will never purchase another however the motor runs fine and it does cut great but beware as they are cheaply made of plastic and not up to mowing proper.
Easy to operate, so much easier to mow the lawn
The cutting result is great.
It is easy to operate the mower, as you just hold the handle and it walks itself. So you basically just need to walk with it.
However, the smaller parts, e.g. wheels (even tho its for decoration purposes) they fall off quite easily. But it isn't a big deal.
Nice, easy cut.
It's a very cheap mower so i was a little worried about it's quality, however it's been great for me so far. Mine is the 750SX which has self propulsion which has been a god send on my very hilly property. It seriously makes mowing the lawn so much easier. The mulcher is a nice premium addition too and it is a very easy mower to start and cleaning is simple as well.
My old mower was very old and quite possibly used more fuel than it should have, but I have noticed that my new one is using significantly less petrol.
I haven't had to change any parts yet so i can't comment on how easy or hard they are to replace.
Overall it's pretty hard to go past this for the price.
Starts and cuts very well
I bought the 750EX which is the same version as above but not self-propelled. Excellent cut & mulch (4 blades), easy to start and use and my main criticism of it would be the small fuel tank.(about 25 mins use). The side chute mounting broke in the first hour of use, but I easily fixed it back on with a drill, and 2 screws into the steel deck. I was looking at buying a $600 Honda but am still happy with my $250 choice. 6 hours use of cutting close around trees, bushes and garden beds on 2 acres and nothing to worry about. Recommend.

It's so very easy to start, always 1st time. Great catcher, mulcher & side shoot for longer grass. Easy steer with automatic setting as to not have to push mower, just guide it around yard. Catcher is so compact for storage. Easy to clean after use. Paid a very competitive price from Editors with free delivery. Fantastic value for money.
Best value for money
I bought this lawn mower last month and excellent performance and value for money.
The 19” Baumr-AG 760SX boasts an effortlessly powerful 6HP 165cc air-cooled, 4-stroke OHV engine, that slices through the toughest buffalo with ease to give your lawn a great looking, healthy cut.
Strongly recommend to purchase this product.

Shame about spare parts !
I purchased a 760SX Mower from Baur-AG and I am happy with the machine.It starts first time and does a good job,no issues. However I recently attempted to buy spare cutting blades from Edisons (in early Nov 2016) and I am still waiting.I don't believe they are available. The blades on my machine are damaged beyond repair making the mower useless.

Just what I needed another hard to start four stroke mower.
Hard to start straight out of the box, really long recoil rope on the starter. Starting that much more difficult due to holding spring loaded dead man at control centre. No fuel tap.
Mower was very cheap but once started it mows quite well and has room for a stubby and a place for PPE on the control centre.
Needs work on the deadman design.
