OUR RATING ★★★★☆ 

As a manufacturer of lawn mowers Wolf-Garten isn’t a name that’s particularly well known in the UK but they are owned by the company that owns the ride-on mower companies Lawnflite and Cub Cadet so their products should be good. The Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E has been on the Which? Best Buy list for the last three years and it’s easy to see why as you get a lot of features for your money.

The Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E is brightly coloured, smart looking electric push mower designed for medium-sized gardens thanks to its 37 cm (14 inch) cutting width. To reduce the number of trips back and forth to the compost heap there’s a large 35 litre collection bag which is easy to remove and refit.

There’s a flap which shows when the bag is full which prevents lines of grass cuttings being left behind on the lawn. However, if you’d prefer to mulch the cuttings in order to return some nutrients back into the lawn then it’s dead-easy to mulch them instead as there’s a switch which selects between the two options.

The cutting height is adjustable in five steps between 20 mm and 60 mm via a single lever with clear markings so that you know which height you’ve selected.

The handle is comfortable to use thanks to the soft grips that cover it and it offers a reasonable range of adjustment to allow for different height users. To save space in your shed the handle folds in half.

A welcome feature is the removable cable which – at 19 metres in length – is unusually long. Because it is removable (unlike most other manufacturers designs) it can be easily replaced if it gets damaged. It can also be stored in the grass box when not in use.

So how does the Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E perform ?

Whilst it can’t cut as close to the lawn edges as the Bosch Rotak 37 Ergoflex (or any of the Bosch Rotak family), it copes well with rough grass thanks to its powerful 1500 Watt electric motor which has ample power – it managed to pick up all of the grass cuttings even when the grass was damp.

We found that the smooth top surface of the Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E allowed it to get in under shrubs and bushes without getting caught and it was easy to push around despite its all-up weight of 16 kg thanks to wheels that run on proper ball bearings.

The weight may be an issue if you have to push it up lots of slopes or carry it up and down steps but is down to the extremely sturdy plastic chassis – compared to the Bosch Rotak it feels much more substantial but then it costs nearly twice as much.

Overall we like the Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E – it’s a sturdy, dependable feeling lawn mower and is better suited to rough lawns than the cheaper and less robust feeling Bosch Rotak 37 Ergoflex.

If your lawn is rough and full of holes get the Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E but if you’re lucky enough to have a smooth lawn get the Bosch Rotak.
