Such a surprise

Having pushed petrol mowers most my life the dread of doing it became a chore. Having used this lightweight option it's enjoyable. Two problems, you have to manage where your electric cable is, and you have to wait for grass to be dry. Show details

Surprisingly really great mower for small lawns

Owned it for 3 years cutting a lawn around 65m2. Cuts grass very well. Simple to use and convenient. Not required any maintenance. Really is perfect for a small lawn. Easy to clean. Even though many of the parts are plastic it is still pretty much like new after 3 years of use. Show details

Great little mower!

Bought this Ozito electric corded mower from Bunnings after using a heavy petrol mower for years, it is amazing, lightweight no messing with petrol and oil, love it, makes mowing my lawn a breeze, after mowing with the petrol mower I was exhausted, this little mower is so easy and it has a 3 year warranty. Show details

Good value

This is a light weight mower. Easy to maneuver. Not as powerful as a petrol one but good enough. You need to be careful with the power cord. Good price. Very reliable. No petrol. Cheap to run. No smell. Took me a few goes to get the catcher on. Not sure if it loses power when it gets hot. Fairly quiet.  Show details

Dust churner, getting warranty was unnecessarily unpleasant experience

"An ideal mower for the home owner who has a medium to large lawn area." says the blurb on Bunnings website. But after having to claim warranty (no choice of refund offered) I was told 3 times that this model was only to be used for small areas like in townhouses not homes. So there is either false advertising or misinformation. I was also asked to pay an extra $10 because I paid that much less last year (2019), they said I was buying, I said I was getting a replacement not buying. My grass area is small to medium. I have to say the grass is short and dry most times of the year (watering by rain only since 2007), the ELM 1536 is very good to excellent at churning up dust in this situation. I did not test on lush grass. Show details

Good but.... it needs a power cord

No review mentions it needs a power cord attached to the mower to run. It DOES NOT run on a rechargeable battery. That is this mower’s biggest flaw. The power cord gets in the way when mowing. Can also do with a bigger lawn catcher. I find I have to empty it every 5-10 minutes.

Otherwise a great lawn mower for the price, $150. Lite, easy to maintainer, good for a small lawn. Show details

Perfect for town house and medium size lawn where required electrical cable length is less than 25 meters

Easy to assemble and use. Enough power-1500 w to cut the grass (15-20 cm height) in the medium sized backyard(200m sq). More power would be unnecessary. One should not be cutting more than 40% of the length of the grass at a time so as not to damage the grass roots. It is sturdy and robust and comes with 3 years of warranty. Therefore peace of mind. Assembling basket looks little complex due to flexibility of the material but not very difficult. However flexibility also makes it durable. And this is just one time job. Overall happy. Serves my need. Show details

Its okay, but great for the price!

I purchased this mower after reading many positive reviews although its power and features arent as flash hot as some other brands on the market i think given the price it serves more than its purpose and is very ideal for a situation like myself who has a small backyard to cut here and there. Overall Im very happy with this product and would highly recommend it to other individuals. Show details

Recently upgraded from older Ozito Electric Lawn Mower

Personally i like corded lawn mowers, i don't understand why we don't have a bigger and better range.
Overall it works fine and i give my lawn mower a hard time.
The catcher is a bit small, balance is a bit off when it gets full. Catcher is hard to get on and off, needed some rivets to stop it from falling apart. Handle angle is a little low for my liking. From the previous version its improved and gone backwards at the same time. The motor does tend to struggle a bit on thicker grass.
Hope to get a couple more years from it, but not sure if i would buy another one. At $150 it still good value and with a 3 year warranty really cant go wrong. Show details

Great if it lasted

Excellent lawn mower and more than powerful enough for our small lawn of around 100m2. What really annoys me is they don't last! This is the second one now and after about 9 months to a year it just seizes.
Electric motors are supposed to be super reliable and maintenance free. Nothing unusual about our lawn. It doesn't do any heavy duty work. Not over heated at all. The blade on the one I'm about to bin is unworn. At least I now know why I couldn't find anywhere that sold spare blades. Ha ha you will never need them! Show details

Perfect for the price

I used to have a push mower and my lawn was long overdue partially because the push mower is almost useless if the grass grow to certain height. I thought this E mower will have a tough time for the first mowing at least as the grass is not only high but also wet. But it went through without any difficulties. Should have got it earlier. Show details

Great value

Good little lawn mower. It is a little bit low on power, not as powerful as the others and has a small catcher. However, you can't fault it for the price. Show details
