Time for a new lawnmower? Our test results and buying advice will help you choose the right one for the job.

Our latest test results are for electric- and battery-powered mowers. Plus we have results and recommendations for previously tested petrol mowers – catcher-only, mulch-and-catch and one mulcher-only model, and eco-friendly push mowers.

We also explain the different types of mower, look at features to consider and provide safety tips.
