Gtech Cordless Lawnmower 2.0 Review
Cordless lawnmower is the future, they are much more portable, easy to use and low on maintenance. The old petrol-powered or electric lawn mower was also great but they eventually cost much more in the long run, they also consumers an ample amount of time to cut a lawn. Strangely, you spend more time struggling with the cord than to actually cut the grass. Nowadays most of the lawn mowers are battery powered so you don’t get to play with cords anymore. These are also way more powerful because the battery technology has been improving day by day. Some of the major benefits of a cordless lawn mower are the long run time and less time to charge the battery and most importantly, they are very affordable.
Gtech is a popular brand when it comes to buying home appliances in the UK. They have several different successful products in the market, especially in the gardening category. Gtech has several lawnmowers like Gtech Falcon CLM01, it was a great success and since other companies are trying their best to launch a cordless lawn mower the company Gtech decided to launch a new and improved version, Gtech Falcon. The Gtech cordless lawnmower has been upgraded to a new version and the latest 2.0 model comes with more improved performance and several added functionalities to it but, does it really perform better? is it any better than its predecessor? Let’s take an in-depth look at all of its features so you get a clear idea of how things work, see if it’s worthy or not and what you should look for.
This lawnmower impresses us in a lot of different aspects. One of them is the design and build quality. The Gtech Cordless Lawnmower 2.0 is very lightweight. Although it is a very powerful lawn mower which is meant for a medium to large gardens but still it weighs only 13.5 Kg which is kind of light wright as compared to other lawn mowers and makes it very easy to move around in the garden. All of this was possible because of the improved battery technology that allowed the weight of this lawn mower remains low.
Another great thing about this lawnmower which is not present on others is the ability to fold away. Yes! you heard it right. You can fold this lawnmower and pack away and won’t take much of a space when it comes to storing it after the cutting is done. The handle height is not adjustable but you can fold it back and the grass box also folds flat. Talking about the handle it also has a comfort grip to it making it easier to hold.
Battery and Motor
The Gtech cordless lawnmower2.0 runs on a Lithium-ion battery. You have a 48V 2A batteries inside to power up the motor which means you don’t have to carry wires around with you in the lawn and since they are not coming in your way, you are saving a bunch of your time. As compared to the previous version the batteries have been improved a lot and it’s now fast-charging compatible. There is also an LED indicator letting you know the battery capacity so you can fully charge it before start using it.
The Gtech Falcon used to take 5 hours to fully charge the device while the newer 2.0 version takes only 1 hour to charge. This is such a massive improvement with just 1 hour of charge you are getting around 40 minutes of run time and it is sufficient to cut a lawn up to 400m2 on a single charge. The motor here is also more powerful than the previous-gen and can cut through the grass more precisely giving your garden a clean look.
Cutting Width and Height
The blades on the newer model are made from carbon steel making it more efficient and allow it to give clean cuts and with more precision every time. The Gtech Cordless Lawnmower 2.0 also maximizes the airflow which prevents anything from building up on the blades. It is also very durable and doesn’t require sharpening for years. The cutting diameter here is also great, you have a 42cm mowing capability while other lawnmowers only 30cm.
On the newer version, you can have the job done even quicker and everything will be done on a single charge. Compared to the previous version you are losing only 1 cm of a cutting diameter which I not a big deal in my opinion. When it comes to cutting height, you have more flexibility available here, you can choose from six different cutting height which ranges from 30mm to 80mm. This allows you to choose how much height you want to cut off from the grass.
Grass Box Storage
The old models of lawnmower used to cut the grass and throw it backward in the lawn which creates another task to collect the grass and put it away. This was very inconvenient and time taking. We now have a grass box fitted at the backside of the lawnmower which collects all the grass and you can detach and empty it later on when it becomes full.
This Gtech Cordless Lawnmower 2.0 has one of the largest grass boxes in the competition. You get a large 50 Litres of storage capacity so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the grass box several times. You can have a nonstop operation and if you think the grass box is full, you can take a peek at it with the indicator flap to check its current capacity. As mentioned before this lawn mower is foldable which makes it very compact and easier for storage.
The Gtech Cordless Lawnmower also includes an amazing safety feature that you are not likely to see in other lawnmowers that fall in the same price range. The safety feature on this cordless lawn mower prevents it from accidentally starting. If you have children around your house then this feature will be very useful for you. Children are very curious about everything and this safety feature will prevent them from starting the lawnmower.
How does it work? It has a safety key in order to prevent accidental starting. To release the key, you have to press it from both sides and then pull it out of the slot. The key is also tied to the lawnmower prevent the loss of the key. You can also buy the key anytime at a very reasonable rate in case you lost it somehow.

Should you buy this?
There are several things you must consider before making a buying decision. You must take a closer look at a few of the things we are going to mention and it might greatly affect whether you should buy this model or not.
First of all, is the lawn size, if you have a medium to large-sized lawn roughly around 350-400m2 then it’s great for you. It has a large grass box and a good battery which will really help you out.

Note: If you have an uneven lawn that is filled with debris and has rough, long and thick grass then it’s not suitable for you. There is not much downside here, we spend a good amount of time finding one and we also succeeded in many cases but at the end when it comes to the overall experience there is not a lot to complain about.
