Great (corded) mower
This is my first corded mower as ive always used petrol mowers and to my suprise this little bosch arm 37 is great, ive used this about 6 times on my lawns and has never failed to do the job, cuts well and i think the power output is ample for even a long length lawn, blades are still sharp, good size catcher, overall its a reliable mower for a medium to small yard, i give it regular breaks while im doing other things and hasnt let me down to date.
Only good for couple of uses....then it goes in smoke
This is utter worthless waste of time and name of such a huge brand like Bosch. Bought it thinking it will have Bosch quality but it died within a year considering I cut lawn very few times every 3 months. This one started making heavy noises, then started heating up and now smoke started to appear and I had to stop using it. It has been maintained and not even used that much and now its dead. Avoid and get the better ones out there. Terrible.
Purchased in January 2018 for A$199.00.

Cheap'ish, functional, tricky to assemble
Once assembled it works well even on quite long grass (say to 15 cm?) although you'll need to need to make multiple short passes where a heavy duty petrol mower would have just gone straight through. It's fairly narrow and its grass catcher is not huge so it is intended for smaller lawns.
If you're used to petrol mowers, you'll also need to adapt to having a power cord trailing behind so you can't just mow at random.
Assembly is a bit tricky .. the grass catcher actually comes in two symmetric pieces inside each other so it looks like a sing...le (thick) piece. You need to undo catches on the "single" piece to separate the two pieces out - and find the rear wheels hidden inside the pair. The "instruction sheet" isn't a great deal of help unless you already know what you are looking at. Then two pieces of plastic held together by a plastic clip is not the most robust of construction so you need care when attaching and detaching the catcher from the mower.
Lightweight & easy to handle
I use this for the areas I can't get to with the big ride on. I can use it easily with one hand & it does a good job. It is a great mower for any woman to use. My only complaint is with the catcher. Sometimes it takes longer to get it secure than it does to do the whole job. It is all plastic & the 2 pieces are flexible. That makes them hard to line up & clip in place. I use the mower for areas close to the house where I walk around so I need the catcher to stay on & do it's job. It seems to be a flaw in the design which needs to be reviewed & improved.
Really good but bad with long grass
Have had two of these and they are really light and easy to use. However I've had two die, motor failure, while cutting long grass. Bosch replaced the first free of charge. It's reasonably quiet and pollution free which is great. So it's a really good mower but not powerful enough for long grass around 20cm or taller. Also it struggles with damp grass.
Questions & Answers
I own a Bosch ARM 37 1400w Lawn Mower. And while it's been a great little mower as I only have a small back yard, initial assembly was a bit tricky. I am wondering though, a short while ago I ran over my power cord while I was mowing.
Rookie mistake to say the least.
I saw a flash from under the mower and it shut off. My question is, if I replace the cord (cause it's not a warranty job) will the motor still be Good? Or is it worth getting it checked first?
Thanks for any and all advice.
I only know enough about 240 volt power to avoid playing with it. Bear in mind that (especially when mowing wet grass) the power has a place to jump through you to ground if the work is not done properly.
So personally I would take the mower to an electrician (I wouldn't want to pay call out charges) and have them replace the cord .. any reputable electrician would test the motor before (re)attaching a new extension cord.
(I can commiserate as I'm still coming to terms with dragging a power cord around)
