The Best Lawn Mower for Nana


On a recent trip home I was talking to my Nana about our new Ryobi 36V 5.0Ah 46cm Brushless Lawn Mower and how it’s a game-changer for our lawn, It’s light enough to lift over the porch and makes mowing easier than I ever thought it could be.

My Grandfather isn’t around anymore so Nana needed a mower that wasn’t heavy and was a piece of cake to use, so I got talking to Ryobi about the best option for her and we landed on the Ryobi ONE+ 18V 33cm Lawn Mower from Bunnings. It’s 10.3KG making it easy work for Nana to lift across the stones to get to her garden, there’s no petrol, no stiff cords, and no bulk so it’s ideal for her small 10x3m section. If you’re sporting a small section, this mower is the one for you.

Our review

Cordless mowers are fast becoming popular with smaller sized sections and you can see why. Ryobi made this mower more convenient by adding it to their ONE+ family meaning the battery can be used across 80 tools! No cords, no petrol, and being lightweight makes for a much easier cutting experience. Unlike the usual case of the specs saying the catcher is designed to hold more and in fact, they hold less, this mower actually uses all the space of the catcher which is great for Nana because she only has to empty it once with her smaller lawn. I’m really impressed, I wasn’t expecting much because of the size but in all honesty, Ryobi has nailed the purpose of this mower, it's too small for our lawns but it’s ideal for a smaller apartment, retirement flat and courtyards.
