Sure, four-stroke lawnmowers are a staple of the Australian home, but if you’re after a quieter, more enviromentally friendly option without sacrificing power altogether, the Flymo Chevron looks like a decent place to start.

Packing a 1400 Watt motow with a 34cm cutting diameter, the Chevron 34C is a lightweight electric lawnmower with a 40 litre catcher with a see through window to let you know when it’s full. It also features a central lever for cutting height adjustments and an intelligent storage system to manage the 12 metre power cable.

Of course, you are going to need to plug this into the powerpoint to run, so it’s probably not really suited to large yards, but if you’re looking for an affordable electric mower to cut your grass, the $279 RRP will most certainly appeal.
