Bosch AHM 38 G Manual Garden Lawn Mower Review

Bosch AHM 38 G Manual Garden Lawn MowerAs this is my first review, I am starting with a budget lawn mower that will give a good clean cut, and leaves a nice striped finish. Best of all it is the most environmentally friendly type of lawn mower you can buy, only requiring some physical energy to push it. No fuel or electricity required!

This type of mower would be my preferred option for anyone on a budget, and with a small, level lawn.


This Bosch lawnmower is very well made, except for the grass box, has a 38cm width of cut, a five bladed cylinder,  rear roller, and a 25 litre grass box capacity.

It has high geared side wheels for easy pushing, and cutting height variable from 15 mm to 43 mm


It retails at around £55, very competitive

Will give a good cut if used regularly, and leave stripes

Light, so easy to handle and store

Big fuel savings as it is manually operated

Easily adjusted handles to suit any operator

Excellent work out to help with fitness

Cuts closer and cleaner than most rotary mowers

There are no fiddly safety handles, primers, or pull cords


Only suitable for regular use on fairly level ground

Not for rough ground or long grass as the wheels need good ground contact

Grass box is a bit fragile and awkward

Awkward to cut right up to edges as wheels are wider than the cylinder


If you would like a good looking lawn at a budget price, and are willing to put in the effort, this mower is well worth consideration.
