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.

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.

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.

Perfect for small backyard

Jsut purchased and used once - good!
Due to lockdown the mrs didn't want a gardener coming over, we have about 250m2 lawn which is in four separate areas so I found I needed 20m of electric cable.
Mower was super easy to assemble out of the box, and just went off cutting. No mess, the grass catcher did it's job and needed emptying four times - about half of our green bin full.
I have back problems, and pushing it can be a little tough, but the grass was getting long and it cut without issues on a dry lawn. Didn't want to spend a fortune on a battery mower or mess with petrol ...

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Got the job done.
This is an awesome machine due to its light weight it’s very easy to manoeuvre and operate over the lawn, my backyard is very uneven so this was perfect to get the job done, the catcher is 38litres so the length and thickness of your grass will determine how often you will need to empty it. Because it’s electric there’s no need to worry about charging batteries or filling with petrol or oil.

Great and affordable for small lawns
Very light easy to mow lawns. Catcher is a perfect size for my lawn. Only need to empty catcher once when mowings done.
Easy to clean and look after. Shape and colour are very appealing.

Ozito corded electric mower
This mower is a perfect replacement for a petrol mower when you become sick and tired of trying to start it. This one starts first go!! I watched a YouTube video on it by a guy in Qld, and he raved about it with his thick grass and great demo. I am so so happy with it. I recently cut down a veritable forrest around the side of the house and it did not miss a beat. I originally thought that this was only good for small to medium sized lawns, but I'm not so sure anymore. It has never stalled on anything that I have cut. It is light, agile, compac...t and powerful, probs coz of the corded motor but a little cord management and it's not painful at all. I highly recommend this for small to medium, but would not be suprised if it worked a treat on any lawn!

Best Budget mower under $150
Mower easy to use and Assemble, packaged simplistic and only 5 minutes tops assembly without the use of any tools, surprisingly a very quite mower, little flap that indicates when the catcher requires emptying is a great visualization tool as it takes away the guessing, this model is recommended over the 1000W model which is $99.
Makes me feel like a genius.
Ive bought two of these mowers for two different properties,the first one in march 2018 ,and the second one in december 2018 (to replace an 'orrible Victa push mower.Theyre fab little devices that work really well and give an excellent result with minimum fuss.Well designed and very economical....I really like the surprising amount of power and the strong vacuuming action which really cleans up all the leaves and clippings thoroughly.
For the price this is a perfect mower
Electric Ozito is so light and cuts shorter than my last mower. I have nursed my Briggs and Stratton for 3 years too long. The Ozito 1500W doesn't stall either. You will have to mow your lawn differently though.... making sure to work away from the cord. The guy at Bunnings was so knowledgeable. He said you need a heavy duty lead and you can't join 2 domestic cords together..... Reason being the amount of power the mower is pulling is more than a domestic cord.
He also said, not exactly sure why that your lawn has to be no more than 20 met...
I am a middle aged female with shoulder and elbow pain, so the pull start and maintenance of a petrol lawnmower is not for me. So glad I googled the electric option and before I knew it, I bought an Ozito 1500w. If I can put it together by myself, anyone can! I have loved it from day one.
Great value mower
My first electric mower which replaced my push pull mower. I paid $149 for the 1500W model even though I have a tiny lawn. The 1000W was $99. The main difference apart from larger motor is on the 1500W model the catcher is bigger and the height can be adjusted by a lever, not by adjusting the wheels, like on the 1000W model. I put the mower together easily, although the catcher took a bit longer than I'd have liked. Once assembled it works like a dream. My lawn has never looked better and it takes me about 5 minutes to mow! Only negative is I wanted to buy a spare blade for when this one got blunt, but Bunnings don't stock them. They can be bought online or Bunnings store may be able to order one in.
Questions & Answers
Is this a battery powered lawn mower or an electric cord powered
Used it once and now it won't start. It's not the extension cord OR the power point.......have tested both. It's clearly the mower but no troubleshooting address the problem.
Take it back for a replacement. I did!
